propan with iron multivitamins
is profan vit. is effective? ## Really, the effectiveness depends on what you are using it for. If you are using it as a vitamin supplement, then yes. However, many of these products are claimed to help treat a lot of conditions and this has really never been proven. Propan with Iron contains 25mgs Buclizine, 80mgs Iron, 10mgs Nicotinamide, 10mgs B1, 5mcgs B12, 1mg B2 and 5mgs of B6. It is listed in the Indian drug databases as helping to improve the appetite. Side effects may include: nausea and drowsiness. Do you have any other questions? ## Good day, im Christian,i would like to ask if what "1 cap bid" means is? ## does taking propan and myra 400e at the same time bad? ## 1 cap bid means 1 capsule twice a day ## Is it safe to take Propan vitamins even when you're breastfe...

Keppra Experience
I need help in dealing with the anxiety and depression that comes with Keppra. I would like to know how others have dealt with it. ## Fii I was only only on Lamotrigine a few years ago and liked it but it caused massive insomnia, sometimes staying awake up for three days. My mind was noticeably clear and even tempered the times when I didn‘t suffer from insomnia. My Dr. switched me to Keppra (not the generic Levetiractam; I think it was 2000 mg a day). In a short time, I became very angry and told the people I worked with to ignore my rage. I almost got arrested one night. Went back to Lamotrigine and a lower dose of Levetiracetam. I’ve been depressed and my Dr. gave me Mirtazapine (worked up to 45 mg) to take at bedtime for the depression and it worked but over time it has ...

Anti-depressant ## Can Trepiline cause water retention or swollen and painful lower legs where the skin and muscles are actually painful to the touch ## Since this is not available in the US, it is not listed in our monograph, however I did find a page with some information on it for you: ## I have been using 25g trepiline per day for 30 days now, it has helped me to sleep normally again, it has also helped reduce my migraine attacks. I used to have at least 6 - 8 a month, this last month I only had 3, apparantly they will go away completely. This in itself has changed my life!! the only side effects i am experiencing are very sore joints during the night and early in the mornings in my hands and feet. I walk like an old lady for about 30 minutes before it goes away and i can start my d...

cymbalta / vyvanse / xanax = increased anxiety??
I am 34 years old and have been taking anti-depressants for about 3 years. I started on Lexapro, which quit working after a year and a half. While I was taking Lexapro I was experiencing horrible exhaustion (I have a disabled child and work full-time...VERY stressful), so my doctor put me on Vyvanse. She also gave me an Rx for Xanax .25mg to take as needed, which I RARELY took (usually only at night to relax). Last spring my stress level went through the roof and my doctor switched me from the Lexapro (which wasn't working anymore) to Pristiq 50mg, which was AWFUL (Horrible, vivid nightmares). I took that for one month before switching to Cymbalta 30mg. I have never liked taking the Vyvanse because it's an amphetamine. During the summer I began experiencing horrible anxiety and ...

kera gro hair
I don't have any money for anything but for diapers wipes and stuff my twins needs,My hair keeps falling out and I need this so my hair will grow back I know that you need to make a profit but please will you guys help me out ## Hi Maile, I'm not sure what you're talking about as far as making a profit goes, but this site does not manufacture or sell any products. It's simply a platform for people with medical, health and wellness inquiries to communicate with one another. On that note, Kera-veda hair grow oil is only $12.95 on amazon by Lotus Herbals.... so I don't see how pricing could be too much of an issue in this day and age? If you're having a problem with low income, have you considered applying for human resource programs like grace resource, food stamps...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...

Accutane and Infertility
I took accutane almost 14 years ago as a teenager. I am now a 32 year old woman who has just been diagnosed with infertility that they believe is linked to autoimmune issues. I truly believe that accutane is the cause of this; from the research that I have done it seems that accutane has been linked to other thyroid-related diseases, but that they have not yet been able to prove a link between accutane and infertility. There are, however, actually more people like me out there than I originally thought. Being diagnosed with ovarian dysfunction has been a horrific, horrific blow. And while there was plenty of information about accutane and birth defects, no one ever mentioned a possibility of future infertility. I was a teenager! This is a tragedy and I believe something should be done a...
