Eliquis satisfied users

Folks who have problems are quick to get on a site like this one. I would like to hear from some folks who have not had any problems and are satisfied with the medicine. Also, what % of folks have serious side effects. ## I would like to hear from folks who have had a relatively side effect free experience with Eliquis. The only folks who get on sites like this are those who have a complaint. Isn't their anyone out there who had a terrible free or close to trouble free experience? ## Eliquis now in second month no issues.

Hair loss - using Livifem
1 Reply RSS
I'm on Livifem now for 7 months and have noticed a massive hair loss. I have decided to stop using it because this is very traumatic to me. Will my hair grow back again? And how long will it take for it to be normal again? Thank you ## The FDA classifies this as a hormonal supplement, so yes, it can cause hair loss as a side effect, along with headache, nausea, irritability, mood swings, weight gain and PMS-like symptoms. And yes, the hair loss should stop and your hair should fill back, after stopping it, but it may take a month, or two, before you see improvement. Is there anything else I can help with?

fiorinal tablets
14 Replies RSS
I have tried several drugstores for the fiorinal tablet and cannot find them. I have taken them for several years, the capsule is not effective and neither is the fiorcet. Where can I find the fiorinal (butalbital-Asa-caffeine tablets, 50-325-40) ## Hello, Ann! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. However, from what was recently reported, it appears that they were removed from the market. I haven't been able to discover why, it may just have been due to lack of sales. The only suggestion I can really give you is that you talk to your doctor to see if there is an alternative that you can try. Does anyone else have any other ideas? ## Reported Where? I take the Brand Fiorinal with Codeine #3 and have not been able to get script filled for couple mo...

how can i get name brand pain meds instead of generic
2 Replies RSS
I know that generic Norco is weak. How can I get the real ' name brand' meds? ## If you're paying cash, you can just tell the pharmacy that you want the name brand only. However, if you have insurance, your doctor will need to write the prescription as 'brand medically necessary', or whatever the equivalent is in your state. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. However, not all generics are problematic. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have already asked Costco and the hospital pharmacy for name brand, and they say they don't have the code to order name brand for narcotics. They say everyone ...

high blood pressure and fast heart rate

Taking tritace 1.25 and cardiloc 1.25 for high blood pressure and fast heart rate . My left leg keeps swelling up and I get many headaches. Should I be taking a diuretic? ## Hello, Jan! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems that you're having. Yes, those can be normal side effects, though they should improve after about 4 to 6 weeks, once your body gets used to the medication. As listed by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, increased urination and hypotension. And yes again, you may need a diuretic, but only your doctor can tell you that, you may also need to switch to a different medication. Is there anything else I can help with?

Hi my name Sonia I have been taking g ibilex for a few days on it 4 times a day I have been feeling tried over a few days and have a lot of gas from my stomach I'm on it for a burn on my arm ## Hello, Sonia! How are you? The FDA lists this medication as containing the antibiotic Cephalexin, so those can be normal side effects of it. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea, but these effects should go away a week or so, after you complete your course of treatment. Is there anything else I can help with?

paxil and vissual disturbance
1 Reply RSS
Hi I recently started paxil again after 2 years due to having very severe anxiety attacks. I have now been on paxil for 4 weeks and am starting to have very bad vissual snow. My vission is very hazy specially in the dark looks almost like camera noise. Now I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this whilst starting up paxil will it fade with time or is it here to stay ? I've been on.paxil twice in.the past and have never had this side effect ## Hello, Rommy! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Yes, Paxil can cause vision issues, as listed among the side effects provided by the FDA. Even if you've never experienced them before, our bodies do change with time, so it's always possible to experience new side effects to a medication...
