What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

Imipramine reviews
Does anybody have something good to say about Imipramine? ## Hi Becky, Surprisingly I haven't really seen too many reviews on Imipramine or how people have been effected by it. What I can tell you though is that most of these types of medications can and usually do affect everyone differently; so going off someone else's experience may not be the best way to gauge how it's going to effect you in the long run. More often than not, people who have a positive reaction to something usually don't take the time to post about it online. So what we typically see on forums is negative reviews for those who it didn't end up working for. Unfortunately the only way to know for certain is to try it for yourself. You can also learn more about this drug on the page for Imipramine D...

irregular mensuration and ovulation
I had an ectopic surgery on 6th mar'09 wgich claimed one of my fallopian tube. Since then Ive irregular menses of 5 days. I used 30 tablets of ovacare btw august and sept 2014 and to my surprise it came for 3days without blood clotting. For how long should I use Ovacare? ## Hello, Teni! How are you? It is going to be normal to have some irregularities, after such a surgery, because it will throw off your natural hormonal balance for awhile. Ovacare is just a nutritional supplement, so while there is no harm in taking it, it's also not going to do anything to help with this issue. Have you consulted your doctor? How long do your menses usually last?

oblong white pill with the letter. A/5606
Would like to know what kind of pill this is. ## Based on my research, I've only come across one pill that actually closely resembles your description of the pill. The one I found is a 400mg Acyclovir tablet, used for treating herpes simplex. It's a white oblong-shaped tablet with a large capital "A" that has a partial vertical line (like this "/") going through the side of it... and right next to the letter A is the following set of numbers "5306"; no markings on the backside. For verification, the manufacturer is reported to be Apotex and the tablet itself carries a National Drug Code of 60505-5306. Does this sound like it could be a possible match?

Cymbalta 60mg
I forgot to take my tablet last night at 6pm and I took one at 10am this morning when I remembered to take it. What time should I take it tonight? Also I am feeling very nauseous - is there something I should do in order to feel better? I have had some neurofen but the headache is not going away at all. Also I am dizzy. ## Hope you are better by now. Resume normal dosage when you miss one. Try saltines for your stomach. I use ibuprofen for headaches and body aches. Ask your doc about dizziness. I take Cymbalta before bed. ## I was told to take it at 6 pm when I get home from work. I only get dizzy when I forget to take it and feel like crap the next day and have to take myself to bed and don't like driving when I feel like this. What are saltines? ## Saltines are crackers like Premi...

adding weight
I'm trying to conceive and also trying to gain weight as well.I've been through a lot of test with my husband andthe doc said we r both fine and keep trying for some months. I want to know if taking a cyproheptadin or dexamethasone for gaining weight will affect my chances of getting pregnant....please,kindly send a report or medical advise through the email address provided below ## Hello, Ope! How are you? If you're trying to get pregnant, it would be best not to take anything, without your doctor's approval. Additionally, gaining weight affects your natural hormone levels and is well known to cause problems with fertility, so it would be best not to try, at this time. Is there anything else I can help with?

amox clav 875 mg , taken 10 days for sinus infection, interaction with lead poisoning
Have lead poisoning from teen years. now in 50's, My ear seems plugged after the 10 days and a short trip to higher elevation. Dizzy and weak also. ## Hi noknee, How are you? Sorry to hear about your previous run in with lead poisoning. I had no idea lead remained in your system for such a long time. Although from what I understand, there are ways to detox it out with proper exercise and dieting (e.g - juicing fresh fruits/vegetables, taking activated charcoal, as well as various "heavy metal detox" supplements on the market). At the moment there don't appear to be any methods for determining if prescription antibiotics interact with lead specifically, so you may need to have your doctor evaluate the condition of your ear and see if it might even be the result of an alle...

KeraGro is a scam
I don't see any difference and when I tried to cancel the first month supplements (during my 2 week trial) I could never get ahold of the company, I sat on hold 4 times for about 15 minutes, then was hung up on. when I finally did talk to someone they told me it was too late to cancel and that I had already been charged $90 for the first month of supplements, I told her I wanted my money back and I would send back the product, she said she can't. I asked to speak with the manager, she told me it would be a 45-50 minute wait; at this time I had already been on the phone for over 20 minutes. So here I am waiting on hold when I hit over an hour on hold and I'm hung up on....again!!! have yet to get the product, still not seeing results from the trial, and I've had almost $100

what are Famynor tablets for?
Hi I haven't been seeing my period for months 3-4 months, went to the clinic for a pregnancy test and it is negative. The doctor said there might be fat on my tubes. I'd like to know what else can the problem be except for fat in my tubes because its been happening for a while now my period is on and off and the doctor prescribed famynor tablets. ## Hello, Heily! How are you? It is most likely due to a hormonal imbalance. Famynor are used to prevent pregnancy, but taking them for a few months may help to rebalance your hormones, so your body starts to cycle normally, again. Is there anything else I can help with?
