heart palpitations
About a year ago my dr prescribed flecainide 100mg twice daily started taking it at home no warnings of problems I was diagnosed with palpitations. It was working nearly perfect. Now a year later and fifty pounds lighter (done on purpose)I'm struggling with near constant fluttering ,skips,occasional pain and numbness. Everything I read says this drug is for serious problems. Went to the ER recently was asked why I was on it. I'm now really worried. I feel awful half the time. Should I worry?

Does 100 mg morphine sulfate extended release pill taken every twelve hours (2 per day) equal 100 mcg. Fentanyl patch applied every 48 hrs.?
My question concerns drug conversion. The Fentanyl works well, most of time, for my chronic pain, but my insurance now says I can only get it again in March of 2015. This is still Oct., 2014, so I will be out of patches at end of October. I don't understand this, because just stopping the patches would/will cause terrible withdrawal, because if you are only couple days late, withdrawal starts. This happened also recently as my dr. changed (at my request to try something else)100 mcg. patch to only 15 mg. of morphine ER every 12 hours, because of patches costing almost $400 for one month, which I cannot afford, due to "doughnut hole". The change made be very sick within two days, so I had to go back to patches. I didn't think the 15 mg. extended release morphine was enoug...

antidepressants and weight loss
Is there any anti-depressants available that actually can make you loose weight and not gain? ## There's no pill that can make you lose weight. Weight loss comes from calories in and calories out. If you are not eating properly and exercising on a regular basis then it is not the pills fault for having a negative effect on your weight. Surely the drug may have an effect on your metabolism, but this is to a small degree if you cover all the other basis of your health; including but not limited to: Adequate hydration throughout the day Plenty of fruits and vegetables Low fat consumption Exercising at least 3 days a week Adequate rest and sleep schedule Loving others around you and enjoying life Essentially, if you are missing any one of these factors, you will be more prone to experie...

antidepressant closest to Tramadol in the brain.
I am a recovering Tramadol addict of 8 yrs. Last 3 I was taking 20-25 a day. Off internet or by phone. Had a source prob in India. Would use pre-loadable credit card called PayPower. Mailed in 2-3 days via USPS. Well in May 2014 I got sick with Adnovirus fr son an somehow that messed with Tramadol. Started having palpitations an skipped heart beat. Very scary. Went to ER. Very humiliating to say you are an addict but my own fault. See Tramadol is VERY addictive. For SOME!! It has antidepressant/anti-anxiety properties in it also. Thats why I liked it so. I was first prescribed it by orthopedic dr for tibial stress fracture. Also fibromyalgia an herniated disc in lumbar. Also had lost a child an it seemed to make me happier. Going back to ER. Dr did tons of bloodwork even on heart. Couldn&#

How to get off Suboxone
Im Marina Im 24 years old and a mother of 2 beautiul little boys. From the years 2006-2007 i was heavily addicted to Oxy 80 and eventually started doing herion. I got help in sep.2007 at a methadone clinic, it worked for as long as i was on the methadone i had NO relapse's. In June 2009 i was completly off of the methadone that first day that i was on 0Mgs I went through extreme withdrawls i went through things that i would never wish upon my worst enemy! i stayed that way for a day and a half and decided to go to a suboxone doctor. He put me on 32 mgs a day which i thought was pretty high of a dose but he explained to me that methadone withdrawls was worst then any other withdrawls. so i trusted him.

Can pain in feet and ankle be from Losartan?
I started Losartan (50 mg/1 per day) in May, after battling the Lisinopril cough for 2 months. I have had a lot of pain in my feet and my achilles tendon on one ankle. I also have gained weight and have increased appetite. I also have pain in my knees. What is a good substitute for Losartan? Is it possible that these things I have described are caused by Losartan? Also, what about fatigue? Thank youi.

opioid
is Soma considered an opioid? ## No. It isn't related in any way to opioids. It is related to an ancient tranquilliser called meprobamate which was widely used in the 1950s but hardly at all since benzodiazepines hit the market. Another name for carisoprodol is ISOMEPROBAMATE. An amount of your Soma/Carisoma is metabolised by the liver into meprobamate so as well as being a superb muscle relaxant it does have a slight tranquillising effect. Barely noticeable though it does tend to potentiate the triazolo-benzos like alprazolam. I wonder where the notion that it was an opioid came from? That's one I never heard before! ## soma is not a opiate, IN FACT IN THE USA IT IS NOT EVEN A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE!. i never understood what all the hype was about, they only putt me to sleep. BUT...

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?
My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

Metronidazole lasting side effects
I have been taking this medication for 7 days and off of it since a week and still have severe side effects, abdominal cramps, severe headaches, dizziness, unsteadiness... How long is it expected to last? It was prescribed with Ciprofloxacin to me and I take Entrophen on a regular basis... ## Have things improved any? Have you consulted your doctor? For a short course of the medication, it would be unusual for side effects to remain that severe for that long, after you are finished with it. ## I started flagyl on 3/5/12 I'm so sick now, but I stopped it 3 days ago when these symptoms started yet they have only gotten worse. My throat is covered in sores and blisters. It also has a yellow type puss that runs down the back of my throat. I Itch like crazy my stomach is so bloated i loo...
