Fentanyl Can I Just Go Cold Turkey When Quitting
89 Replies RSS
My doctor has had me on the 100 fentanyl patch for 1 year now. He is going to take me off it. Can you just stop taking it with out side effects or withdrawls. Please tell me the proper way to get off this patch. Please help me, I have the doctor appointment tomorrow and want to know what to say. So far it sounds like his plan is just to take me off cold turkey. I am scared of withdrawls I am a mom of 5 kids and need to be ok. Please help. ## No, it is not safe to go cold turkey. I have had a doctor tell me that no one has ever died from withdrawal. Fentanyl withdrawal can slow or even stop your breathing. I have been on a 350 mcg dose of fentanyl patcheds every 48 hours for 10+ years. I was in a serious car accident w/ligament & tendon injury, then they thought chronic pain/arthriti...

Mood changes throughout the day
Post a Reply
I've been on 50mg for 2 months now and I'm noticing they are helping my depression but most days I have moments of happiness and really feeling good about myself then hours later I will feel really depressed and sad. There's not really a pattern that I can notice. Some days I'm still sad all day but there's never days when I'm entirely happy/ok. Any suggestions why this unbalanced emotional state is happening.

Ramipril and kidneys
1 Reply RSS
Been on Ramipril 2.5mg for eight years or more and new Dr.changed them to 5mg.I have recently had a blood test to check kidney function/liver,etc and had a call from say my potassium levels were this due to the increase in strength of the Ramipril? The medication was increased to bring my blood pressure down to a more acceptable level. ## Hello, Sheik! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem you're having. Yes, Ramipril has been known to cause elevated potassium levels, as a side effect. As listed by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. It may be best to switch to a different medication, depending on how high your level is, since hyperkalemia can be dangerous. Is there anything else I can help w...

tadora 20 effects on female
1 Reply RSS
What effects happens to a female if she takes tadora 20 tablet. Will she feel arouse as men..?? ## Hello, Sahil! How are you? No, it may have a small effect, since it increases blood flow throughout the body, but it will not have the same effect that it does on men. And actually, it could be dangerous, since Tadalafil increases blood flow, it can cause lowered blood pressure, lowered heart rate, lowered breath rate, fatigue and could cause coma and possibly death, if she has certain medical conditions, as listed by the FDA. This medication should never be taken, without a doctor's approval. Is there anything else I can help with?

mirtazapine 45mg wean off
1 Reply RSS
can anyone advise me how to reduce my dosage from 45mg down ## Hello, Tommie! How are you? You should follow you doctor's instructions. Generally, the modern preferred method is to have someone gradually reduce their dosage, while starting to skip days, such as going down to 40mgs on Monday, then skipping Tuesday, then taking the 40mgs again on Wednesday. Do that for a week, then reduce to 35mgs the next week and so on. The FDA lists the possibly withdrawal effects as including nausea, dizziness, fever, chills, rebound pain, depression and mood swings. Is there anything else I can help with?
