abilify and teens
My 13 yr old son has just been prescribed Abilify and I need to know if anyone has experience with their teen being on this. ## My son was on Abilify for about a year. He did really well on it except that he gained almost 50lbs. It helped him focus and concentrate but made hiim extremely hungry to the point that he was getting up in the middle of the night and gorging himself on food. ## My son took Abilify for about 2 years, ages 14-16, was not approved by the FDA for him at the time. He began taking it after an episode of waking me in the middle of the night telling me that satan told him to kill himself. He was blank and lacked emotion while he was taking it (which was reported to the mental health provider), but no weight gain. He truly lost his personality and sense of humor. He ha...

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...

abdominal fat
I am a 60-year-old male with COPD and a pot belly. I have lived with this double trouble ever since undergoing surgery and then horomonal therapy and radiation therapy for prostate cancer. I am cancer-free now, but have failed despite strenuous ab workouts to get rid of my overdose abdominal fat. I have a sense that diaphragm breathing, forced by COPD, has enlarged my tummy hold. Is ther any way how I may get back in shape? Surajit Roy

Venofer long term side effects
For the last 2 1/2 years, I've been receiving venofer infusions (series of 10 every other day) approximately every 3 months due to extreme iron deficiency anemia with no cause identified. I finished a round of 11 infusions 12 days ago, when my ferritin counts weren't that low at 25, nor was my hemoglobin at 10.0. I'm a teacher and my hemotologist said she wanted to build me up over the summer. Three days ago, I started having very black stools, nausea, weakness and fatigue, and total loss of appetite. Is this iron overload or is there something else going on? Has anyone experienced this? I can't find any information about the long term effects of using venofer. ## I was severley anemic too and was hospitalized, Instead of giving me infusions, they gave me blood transfusi...

available dosages of diladid
are diladids available in 40mg dosages? ## Hello, Jim! How are you? No, the maximum dosage available of Dilaudid is 32mgs in the extended release formulation and 8mg in the regular release. This is 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Do you know how to get these online?

smell in urine
Seven weeks ago I had spine surgery, having to have fusions with metal screw, rods and a cage. I first had a urine leakage for about 3 weeks. Now I have a horrible smell in my urine, my bladder doesn't seem to be emptying completely. I did not have this problem prior to surgery..my surgeon said I needed to see a urologist, which I have. he is wanting to admit me to hospital for examinations on my bladder and kidneys. I haven't been released from my surgeon yet and another stay?? What concerns me is the fact that I did not have this problem until I had back surgery.
