Does Valium cause Depression?
21 Replies RSS
Does anybody know or think if Valium could cause depression? This might sound like a weird question, actually, maybe it is bad to take alcohol while on Valium. I would appreciate any feedback. ## VALIUM CAN BRING ON SERIOUS BOUTS OF CLINICAL DEPRESSION! THIS OCCURS AFTER A PERSON TAKES VALIUM ON A REGULAR BASIS FOR A LONG TIME AND/OR ABUSES IT(TAKING LARGER THAN PRESCRIBED DOSES), AND THEN TRIES TO QUIT COLD TURKEY! VALIUM CAN BE A MIRACLE DRUG FOR ANXIETY WHEN USED ONLY ON A SHORT TERM BASIS! BUT IF TAKEN TOO LONG ON A REG. BASIS, & VALIUM WILL BECOME YOUR ENEMY, & WILL ACTUALLY CAUSE THE SAME SYMTOMS THAT IT INITIALLY WAS PRESCRIBED TO GET RID OF!! GUARANTEED FACT!! I KNOW THIS FROM MY OWN EXPERIENCE, & ANY QUALIFIED HEALTH CARE M.D. WILL AGREE!! HOPE I HELPED! IF YOU WANT...

New Subutex laws
41 Replies RSS
I went to see my doctor this week and he told me that the fda and the idea had passed a new law for prescribing subutex. As of July 1st 2015 subutex can only be given to pregnant woman or to someone with documentation saying they can't take suboxone. If you don't have that you will be put on suboxone. ## They Are Both the same thing. Better yet stop doing narcotics, get off opiates completely and get a life. Do you focus on school and work as much as you do opiates being controlled By the DEA??? ## Jim, not that it's any of your business, but yes I do focus on my career now that I'm off the opiates and taking subutex. I received my B.S. in molecular biology and am currently completely my 2nd year of medical school. So now that you know a little about me, what about you? ...

Weaning off Dilaudid
47 Replies RSS
I have been taking 8 mgs. of Dilaudid 4 times a day for the last 6 months for a chronic illness. 3 months ago I had surgery to give some relief to my illness, and I have since found some stabilization to my symptoms. As such, my doctors want to wean me off of the Dilaudid. I am very nervous about the idea because I have noticed in the mornings (after not having the Dilaudid for 12 hours), I feel a bit anxious and I have joint and muscle aches and pains. Therefore, the first thing I do is take my Dilaudid. Currently to wean me off my doctor is suggesting that I taper back one pill a day (around lunchtime) each week so that I go from taking 8 4mg. tablets a day to taking one 4 mg. tablet a day. This process should take about one month to complete, and it truly frightens me. Do you have an...

Doctors Willing To Prescribe Heavy Pain Medication In Colorado
3386 Replies RSS
I have a serious problem. My dr. had two patients start dr. shopping and has decided it is too big of a pain in his butt to continue prescribing, even though I have gotten MRIs and Xrays to prove my problems. I have over a half a dozen herniated discs in my low back, along with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, scoliosis and arthritis in my facet joints. I am currently on5 30mg oxycodone a day for breakthrough and 60mg of methadone for my long lasting meds. I REALLY need a doctor in the Denver, CO area who will not judge me because of my age, thinking I'm just some drug seeker as I TRULY need my meds to function. I am even being placed on disability until I can get my back healed because if something doesn't change I will be in big time pain for the rest of my life. If...

Anybody else with these issues

Been on Linzess 145 for 2 months. Was having lots of allergy issues-hives and itching on scalp, runny nose, sinus pain, extreme fatigue. Also shortness of breath and heart palpitations. Hadn't had major allergy attack in months but thought that was what was going on. Steroids, inhaler, Benadryl no help. Started paying real close attention to symptoms and realized I never woke up with hives, they always appeared sbout half hour after Linzesse was taken and improved by end of the day. Stopped taking it and 48 hours later no hives, itching or sinus symptoms. Still dealing with fatigue. It did helps constipation problem although I came real close to more than one accident. Not worth the side effects. Has anyone else experienced any if these symptoms? ## Hello, Brenda! How are you? I...

Effexor and sleepiness
Post a Reply
I am on 150 mg, I have been taking it in the morning as my dr said to, but I can't focus in the mornings at all, I feel really sleepy and I start to feel myself by the afternoon around 3p. Should I try to change it to the evenings when I take it? When does everyone else take it?
