Savella was a total nightmare!
Post a Reply
I have had fibro for over 20 years. I had been taking Lyrica for over 6 years and my pain was starting to increase so my Dr. weaned me off of Lyrica and started Savella at 25mg 2x a day. I had horrible side effects including nausea, intense sweating, suicidal thoughts, sleeplessness. Despite that I stuck it out for a month and even tried the higher dose of 50mg 2x a day to see if I would get any benefits. But the side effects got worse and were unbearable and my pain levels were through the roof. I had horrendous flare ups along with those side effects. I couldn't handle the medication any longer and have now weaned myself off. I'm now considering going back on Lyrica. I would not recommend this drug. I've had issues with other anti depressants in the past so this may not be th

I found a small, round, pink pill that is coated with a 5 on one side and nothing but a score on the othe side. I can't seem to identify it. Anyone know what it is? ## Round pink pill scored on one side with a 5 on the other side ## Lisinopril 5 mg ## in the future, you can go to drugs (dot) com (cant write the website here for some reason..) and go to pill identifier. ## Hi Robin, I can also confirm that this pill is Lisinopril (5 mg). You can view a photo of it on the manufacturer's webpage listed below: Additional information about this drug can be viewed in the link below: I hope this helps! ## please identify this 0.5mg pink round tablet, blank on one side, L467 on other. I believe it's either clonozapen or klonopin ? ## A pink pill with nothing on either side ## A smal...

Side effects of Bactrim

I need to know of any side effects that may occur while taking this medication. ## Are there any risks to taking this medication understanding that the patient is 35 weeks pregnant? ## I took it for sinusitis/ear infection and got a terrible case of hives. ## You can't take Bactrim if you are allergic to sulfa (ie. that case of hives) ## Rash can occur ## My 9yr old daughter was prescribed Bactrim for treatment of a bladder infection. 2 pills twice a day for 7 days on 8th day she broke out in severe hives and a red pin point rash all over her body head to toes she also ran a fever. She has had the rash so far for 4days. Doctor says rash is possible side effect or possible allergic reaction. ## Any medication can cause a possible allergic reaction(rash, hives and more severe reaction...

is it okay to chew a fentanyl 50mg pain patch
474 Replies RSS
ive been given fentanyl 50mg pain patches an i was just wondering if its okay to cut one in half an chew on it? ## I would say definitely NOT - The Fentanyl transdermal patch is supposed to be absorbed by the body gradually. If you were to chew on it you would be taking a very dangerous risk - this is a very strong medication! Chewing on it would essentially release 3 days worth of of a narcotic into your body which is more powerful than morphine! Please post back with any other thoughts you have about this and please be safe! ## Obviously, chewing the patch is unsafe, but again...people are going to chew them. You can chew em as long as you take only small portions at a time. Just moderate yourself and don't overdue it. ## Keep in mind that fentanyl patches are close to 80 TIMES mo...

Prepopik
174 Replies RSS
Has anyone in the US used this yet for colonscopy and what did it cost? ## I've used this Prep and it was wonderful. It tasted like orange soda and was very small. I undergo routine colonoscopies and have now finally found my prep of choice because it taste great and is tiny. Suprep & Moviprep = YUK!!! ## Thanks, Johnny, was that in the US? and what did it cost? I really don't care if it is easy to use. I may need to convince my Gastro in some way. ## I used prepopik yesterday. It tastes like unsweetened lemonade with LOTS of artificial sweetener. Like lemon koolaid without sugar. Texture is good though, not thick or slimey. Mix with refridgerated cold water, not tap water and stir well. Drink with a straw. Brush your teeth and tongue after drinking to get rid of taste. You ...

Stopping Levothyroxine
44 Replies RSS
I have been taking Levothyroxine .88mg for the past two years. I just left town on a three week vacation and realized I left this prescription at home. Should I be concerned? ## If you suddenly stop taking Levothyroxine, your body can go through withdrawal. "Levothyroxine withdrawal may cause hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain, fatigue, depression and sensitivity to cold because your body does not have enough thyroid hormone so your body processes slow down. Patients with thyroid cancer may suffer acute hypothyroidism because of levothyroxine withdrawal." Referenced from: livestrong.com/article/levothyroxine-withdrawal Since you've been taking this medication for so long, I would consider contacting your doctor about this if you have be...
