feeling bad from celexa
Ive taken celexa for approximately two years between the weight gain and no libido I decided to wean myself off of it from 20 milligrams to 10 milligrams for one week then I stopped with horrible side effects. I have had nausea With headache hearing things like a noise in my head not sure if it is a zap like I have heard other people say but no energy and irritable does anyone know when the nausea feeling will go away I can possibly deal with everything else But feeling like I constantly want to throw up is horrible ## Hello, 317princess! How are you? You really didn't do much of a taper, which is why you're experiencing such withdrawal symptoms. The nausea might last about a week or two, before it starts to improve. How long has it been since you've taken one? What other me...

My grandson is very thin. he eats . but he gains no weight .is there some type of vitamin or a doctor to see to help this child. we as his family can not allow him to play sports due to him being to think and some what fragile, ## Hello, Sandy! How is your grandson doing? Not everyone is meant to be bigger/heavier and being thin doesn't necessarily mean that he's fragile and can't play sports. What has his pediatrician said about it? Do they feel that he's underweight? What types of foods does he eat?

New user of neurontin
A dermatologist prescribed Neurontin (400mg 3x daily) for neuropathic brachioradial pruritis. Anyone else have this? I started taking it last night and took one this AM. It made m every drowsy. Does this go away in time? (It's about 4 hours since I took it and I feel less drowsy although I don't think I would droive my car.) ## Hello, Pikov! How are you? Neurontin is an anticonvulsant that can also help with certain types of nerve pain. Drowsiness can be a normal side effect, along with nausea, dizziness, weight changes and mood swings. Yes, it should taper off in severity, after about 4 to 6 weeks, once your body adjusts to the medication. Is there anything else I can help with?

how to find a houston doctor prescribe xanax
I have been suffering crowd anxiety and it's ruining my life my old doctor houser haloed me a whole lot . I can't stand being around stranger they give me anxiety anxiety large crowds scareme ## Hello, Smitty! How are you? If you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. A regular PCP won't be able to prescribe it for you, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year. Have you ever consulted a psychiatrist regarding your issue?

what can you take with morphine
Taking morphine and dilaudid for crushed foot,will those two drugs override TCH?? ## Hello, Peggy! How are you? Did you mean THC? There is nothing in Morphine or Dilaudid that will neutralize any other medications. 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?

I started Sprintec a few days ago I'm 43 taking them to stop excessive bleeding I'm very nauseous even smells make me sick I don't know Wat is causing the bleeding still doin tests is it normal for me to be very sick at my stomach? ## Nausea can be a normal side effect of oral contraceptives, but it's usually not that severe to be at the point where even scents cause nausea. Has your doctor run any tests? When was your last pap smear? Are you on any other medications?

oxycodone purple
Lots of questions on identification of pills LOL. Have any of you been subjected to having to purchase Oxycodone manufactured by KVK Tech? Over a year ago the pharmacies started pushing these pills on several of us. They don't work and have awful side effects. Anyone else had bladder, attitude, pain relief problems? ## Hello, Susie! How are you? Yes, many people have been complaining about the tablets from KVK Tech, as well as several from a few other manufacturers. It isn't just you that's having an issue with them. 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. Have you spoken to your doctor about the problem? They may be able to prescribe a different m...

FWind a doctor who prescribes either ritalin or adderall for my ADHD in Southwest Florida.
I've had adhd since childhood and it has gotten increasingly worse. I've tried EVERYTHING and found that only these two medications really work. My doctor dropped me due to something regarding Obamacare and I NEED to have my prescriptions refilled! These drugs have literally brought my life back to normal! Please tell me of a doctor who understands the severity of the condition and will prescribe the right medications somewhere in Southwest Florida. ## Obamacare has to do with getting medical coverage, not whether or not your doctor treats you. And as to getting the medications that work for you, you'll need to see a new doctor and make sure that they get a full copy of your medical records. Once they can see what has and hasn't worked for you, as documented by fellow ph...

cymbalta and my belly
I started taking Cymbalta two months ago. While it has been so great for my depression, anxiety, and osteoarthritis and back pain, it makes me so sick to my stomach and I even coughed up three drops of blood last week. I go back to my psychiatrist tomorrow and I can't take it today. I am so tired. I automatically feel so depressed after I did not take it last night. Hopefully, there is something else that can help. ## Hello, Tonya! How are you? That sounds more like you might have an ulcer, which will likely require some medical treatment. There is also a chance that it's gastritis, which the Cymbalta may be irritating. Be sure to tell your Psychiatrist about the issue, so they can make sure that this is checked out for you to get to the root of the problem. Do you take any othe...

Frontal Sinus Pressure
I had sinus surgery this year due to blocked sinus at this time I was having pressure in my frontal sinus after the surgery still having this and still am the ENT said that this is possibly due to migrane type issues no mucus there in the location please help ## Hello, Robert! How are you? Yes, that is possible. You might be having migraines, in which case you may need to see a neurologist. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you to someone? ENTs don't usually treat that.

oblong white pill, split in middle, one side of split has 1 on it, other side of split has 3 on it, other side of pill is blank.
this pill is not quite 3/4" long. My pharmacy substituted it for Gabopentin and when I questioned it they said it was a change of Mfg. I'm leery of it, it is larger than gabopentin and tends to give me indigestion. Please set my mind at ease. Thank you. ## Hello, Sue! How are you? Yes, these are 800mg Gabapentin tablets that are manufactured by Camber Pharmaceuticals. There may be a different inactive ingredient that could be causing your indigestion. Have you tried taking it with food?

light blue pill l751
I know a mother that is giving her daughter these pills every night before she goes to bed to make her sleep. Should she be doing this? Is it safe? or could she be addicting her child to medicine. The 10 year old does not have a problem with sleeping. Please ease my mind with this problem, because my concern is for the Kid. Thank You.

And yes, multiple blood pressure/cardiac medications can be taken, if your doctor has prescribed them. This is often done, when someone has treatment resistant hypertension, or if their current medication isn't working for them. What has your doctor instructed you to do?

im allergic to codeine, and i just want to know if this has codeine in it or if it is considered a narcotic. what happens if i take two of these? ## Hello, Mary! How are you? No, those abbreviations stand for Acetaminophen, Butalbital and Caffeine, so it is not a narcotic. This medication is most commonly used to treat migraines. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, insomnia and stomach irritation. And you should only take the amount prescribed by your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?
