Viibryd Weight Gain
25 Replies RSS
I originally got on the web today to research how to loose weight gained from medication. I have been on Viibryd for 6 months for Major Depressive disorder. I currently take 40 mg. It should be noted taking Viibryd has changed me from a size 0 to size 6. 20lbs. My appetite at times especially in the evening is RAVENOUS. I am embarrassed by how much I can eat and not be full. I have been nonchalant about a few pounds here and there but it devestated me yesterday when i caught a glimpse of CELLULITE on my backside. Nothing else has changed in my medicines or routine. I have always been slim. I have compassion for any who have been trying to figure out if Viibryd is causing their body to change physically. I also will comment on other side effects in another post. My memory is compromised ...

diclofenac 75mg and Acetaminophen
2 Replies RSS
I am taking Diclofenac sod ec 75 mg twice daily and it is not even touching on the pain I am having. I was told by a pharmacist that I could take Acetaminophen with this, but to what extent? Can I take it with the bill or inbetween pills? How long should I wait? ## What medical conditions are you being treated for? Are you on any other medications? While it's technically okay to take both, there are other factors that can play a role, such as those that I've asked about. Have you talked to your doctor about it? If the Diclofenac isn't helping your pain, they may be able to prescribe something else. Learn more Diclofenac details here. ## Can you take alke-seltzer plus for a cold while taking my diclofenac?

gabapentin for back pain. Increasing the dosage
2 Replies RSS
My doctor has prescribed me gabapentin 300 mg capsules. for nerve pain in my back. I'm a little confused on how to take it. He said that I can increase my dose. Does this mean that I can take two at time since one isn't helping? I only take it at night when my pain is at its worst. ## I am on same meds i take 3 of those a night ## Our doctor, who is a prof at Duke says you can take up to 2700 Mg a day. A pain specialist we also had stated that if you are taking for example 1800 Mg per day to take one 600 in morning and two 600 at night. Both said not to take major steps over 300 or 600 Mg each week, and I did find that when I upped it or took it down that had to do it slowly. I have been taking 1800 Mg for 7 years now for shingle pain that took out the nerves in my face.

metoprolol withdrawal
961 Replies RSS
i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

weight gain vitamins
1 Reply RSS
Hi, I'm 20 years old. I just want to know how to gain weight as I cannot help myself when people call me a skinny girl. Plz help me. ## Hi Lydianne, Sorry to hear about your challenges with weight. Personally, I don't think it's healthy to let the name calling get to you that deeply. In my opinion it would probably be best to ignore such immature people who aren't capable of accepting you for who you are. And likewise, to accept yourself for who you are with a sense of unconditional love. Having said that, vitamins by themselves aren't necessarily going to help you gain any weight (as there are no calories to be had). To be successful with weight management, one must implement a consistent/reliable strategy for their diet and exercise habits (at your own pace). I wou...

Would like to know of side effects after Prolia infusion from other persons. Up to now I have none. ## Prolia is used to treat or prevent Osteoporosis, specifically in post-menopausal women, it contains the active ingredient Denosumab. I'm glad to hear you've had no side effects, however, they can include: skin infections, jaw bone problems, irritation at the injection site and hypocalcemia. Read more: Is there any with experience using this? ## How are you doing now? Still now side effects? Please let us know ## I was given a shot of prolia 8 days ago. I am suffering from pains in my arms and legs, digestive discomfort and nausea. Has anyone had this shot as I would like to know how long these side effects last as I am unable to work at the moment.

dangers of mirtazapine
317 Replies RSS
It seems to me that Mirtazapine is a potentially dangerous drug with little information known about it. My veterinarian prescribed this drug in small quantities for my cat as an appetite stimulant, so I began reading articles on the drug and its effects. Although it is supposed to be used as an antidepressant for humans, it has a wide reputation for causing suicidal tendencies in children and young adults. It causes weight gain (the side effect my vet was looking for in my cat's case). It also can cause feelings of depression, and wooziness. I spoke with a nurse who took it and she said the effects of sluggishness and dizziness lasted 2 to 3 days. It can also cause nausea and headaches. It seems to me that these side effects are anything but what a person who is already depressed sh...

Buro Sol discontinued?
52 Replies RSS
I went to my pharmacy today here in Canada to be told that Smith Kline Glaxo is no longer making Buro Sol. Is this the case and, if it is, what are my alternatives? ## You mean the antiseptic powder? Unfortunately, since it's never been available in the U.S., I can't find much information on it or why it was discontinued. I can't even find a listing of the ingredients. Learn more antiseptic details here. Did you try asking a pharmacist if they can recommend an alternative? I would, but I'm not sure what's available in Canada. ## I currently am using Buro-sol powder with water to make solution. I live in a town west of Toronto Canada and its available here in most if not all the pharmacy's. some are now keeping the powder behind the counter but others have it with...
