Escitalopram Withdrawal Symptoms????????
MY doc and I have recently decided to try to come off of the generic version of Lexapro, Escitalopram. I was taking 10mg of the stuff for about 10 months. So he took it down to 5mg only five days ago. I'm not sure if what I'm feeling is withdrawal symptoms/pains or if I should go to a doctor for this?! Directly under my chin, where one would say a double chin is, I have a dull achy pain. It's almost like something is putting pressure around my jawbone/chin. Has anyone experienced or heard of such a thing? Am I losing it? I'm experiencing dizziness also, which I know is a major side effect possibility of coming off certain or maybe all SSRI's. Thanks in advance if you can offer any words or advice. ## Hi, I have not experienced withdrawal, but I have experienced the c...

water retention
I am 37 years old and have gained an excessive amount of weight in the last couple years and It's getting worse every month. It's mostly around my belly but I've noticed in my legs that I have a lot of water. My fingers also seem to tingle a lot too. ## Hello, Daylyn! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. And I urge you to see your doctor, as soon as possible. What many people aren't aware of is that such extreme fluid retention can put you at risk of congestive heart failure and it may cause high blood pressure. Both of which require treatment for your own safety. Are you on any medications that might be causing it?

how long does it approximately take for musel and joint pain to go away caused by finofibrate 130 mg
I have severe muscle pain and joint pain in elbows,legs,shoulders,lower back . Been taking it for about a year. Feels like same symptoms I once had when I found out I was allergic to statins. But it was so long ago I don't remember how long before pain stopped. ## Hello, Turridu! How are you? If you were on it for about a year, it might take several weeks for these side effects to taper off and go away. If they continue after about a month of being off of it, then you should consult your doctor as there may be something else going on. Other side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness and headache. How are you feeling, now? ## Still sore but not half as bad, I have been drinking lots of water and eating fruits and veggies trying to purge the meds from my system don...

A special person in my life has been taking methadone for over 10 yrs. Like a lot of other comments, the clinic really is impossible to try to pay for. Just found out his ins. will cover methadone. Now desperately need to find a m.d. in southeast KY who will write prescription. Nearest to bell county. ## Hello, Bill! How are you? I'm sorry, but if he has been going to an addiction clinic for treatment or maintenance, then he must remain at the clinic. It is against the law for a regular doctor to prescribe it for that. I wish I had better news for you, many people have asked, but this is the way the laws currently stand. 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 constipat...

i had epidural shot in my back for right sciatica week ago have pressure on feet now
I have very bad sciatica on my right leg, I past. 6 month I had 3 epidural shots. the last one was 9 days ago, I am having discomfort and pressure on my right calf with some tingling on my foot also, will this go away? ## Hello, Michael! How are you? I'ms sorry about the problem that you're having. Are you on any other medications? Discomfort and pressure like that could be the sign of blood clot, so rather than leave it go and attribute it to the epidural, I strongly urge you to see your doctor and have it checked out, for your own safety. Did you have any side effects from the others?

Carbamazepine is causing low sodium.
I use carbamazepine for trigeminal neuralgia since 1999. Last couple of years have tested low for sodium. Are there equivalent drugs without this side effects ## Hello, Mary! How are you?

They are also anticonvulsants that have been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain. Typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes. What has your doctor suggested? How low is your sodium?

oval pill p 333
A friend has a problem with opiates. They bought these pills that are white and have p333 on them. They were told they were 10 mg narcotics, either oxys or hydros. Anyway I've never heard of them and don't want them taking something that could hurt them. ## Hello, Jen! How are you? Is the marking possibly A 333? There is a tablet that matches this description with A 333 on it that contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen and 10mgs of Oxycodone, it's a generic for Percocet. 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.

30mg ampheta s combo vs 30mg/ ampheta
What is the difference? Is one stronger? Or one lower? ## Hello, Nell! How are you? No, what you've listed are both the same, 30mg mixed amphetamine salts, they've just been abbreviated differently. So, unless one is marked with XR, SR, ER or something similar, then both are 30mg regular release formulations. This medication is a stimulant that's most commonly used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. It carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, anorexia, insomnia, nervousness and weight loss. Is there anything else I can help with?

roxicet ingredients
Colonoscopy on Monday... no aspirin allowed for a week... have toothache... can I take a producer today?? been taking Tylenol...acetaminophen. Anyone??? ## Hello, Rick! How are you? Roxicet contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone, so there is no Aspirin in it. 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. If you're allowed to take Tylenol/Acetaminophen, then you should be abel to take it, but checking with your doctor would be best. Is there anything else I can help with?

pain dr north georgia
Hi. I have been going through a war now for years trying to manage my pain from my ruptured and bulging disk in my lower back. For years I just dealt with the pain. But about three years ago I was forced into a point that I had to work so I started going to a pain clinic in TN and after a year I moved to Florida for my husband to get treatment for cancer. When I moved I had enough of my meds for the month but I couldn't find a doctor to see me in time and ran out. I started with withdrawls and every doctor I saw down there didn't believe I was in pain. So I had no choice but to go to methadone for the withdrawls. Now two years later I'm trying to get off it and get back to a pain clinic. I've been going through withdrawal for 3 weeks and recently started getting migraine...

violent behavior using vyvanse
Have a friend that has turned violent while be treated with vyvanse . We believe the drug has caused this behavior and she is now in trouble with the law. Has anyone had any experience with this ## Hello, Sophie! How are you? I'm very sorry about what happened to your friend. Vyvanse is a stimulant, so there is a risk of it causing such issues, in some people that take it, along with nervousness, insomnia, anorexia and weight loss. However, I am not a doctor, so I can't definitely say if that is what has caused her problem. But stimulants can do that and its been known to occur with anything from energy drinks to coffee. Has anyone else experienced something like this?

Lexapro works!!
I suffer from anxiety and depression. It wasn't until I found myself sitting at a traffic light and wincing from the overwhelming feeling of sadness. I was well aware that I came from a high anxiety family and was certain I inherited that from my mother. What I didn't realize was how depression had slowly creeped into my life. I had no reason to feel depressed. I have a good job and wonderful family. No real money problems just the usual bills yet I had an overwelming feeling of sadness. I schedule a physical and went to see my doctor. During the physical he asked if I had anything to complain about medical or otherwise. So I told about the feeling at the traffic light and all the rest. He offered me lexapro after questioning me about a family history. He explained the there is a g
