pristiq for depression and anxiety did not work
My Son went to the Dr. for anxiety and depression, pristiq created more problems for him, panic attacks, insomnia, loss of appetite and he had black outs, got into some legal trouble and says he does not remember anything about that night. Anyone else had this type of problem? ## I was first prescribed 50 mg and now have been raised to 100 mg of Pristiq a day and 60 mg of Buspar for anxiety and depression. I have noticed that I have been getting irritated and grouchy more often while on the medicine. I have been on for about 3 months now and have set up an appointment to discuss this with my doctor. Not happy at all with this combination. I also had a loss in appetite, but no blackouts. ## had a severe seizure while on pristiq, had been taking the medication for about a year. I was gett...

Side effects of suboxone
I have been on suboxone now for just under a month. I think it is an amazing drug, i have had no cravings or interest in returning to opiates, my drug of choice was oxy. I get up every day feeling happy, and am able to take on what ever the day brings me. I am also on lexapro for depression at this time. There is one problem after i take my dose, which is 8 mg. twice a day, I am extremely tired sometimes to the point where if i sit down I will nod off, so I keep moving and can usually fight through it. I am wondering do other people feel this way or does it get better the longer you are on it? Two other things that are sometimes very bothersome are dizzyness and extreme dry mouth. I just wanted to find out other peoples experiences. Thanx ## Hey yea I get the same nod as you, it starts ...

oxycodone 30mg oval blue pills with #224 imprint don't relieve pain.
Don't accept generic oxycodone 30mg oval blue pill with #224 imprint, they don't relieve pain like the oval blue oxycodone 30mg pills with a M imprint. ## Hello! I am very sorry that these tablets didn't work for you. However, I wonder if you may be incorrectly remembering what you've previously taken? The M logo is used by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals and they do not have any oval Oxycodone tablets on the U.S. market. Is it possible that you were taking something different? ## Sorry I also meant to say that it has nothing to do with her building up a tolerance because she had a couple non caraco's left over from her last prescription and they worked perfectly fine. ## the first half of my post didn't get posted for some reason but what I said was that my girlfri...

Sorry about the pain that you're in, that's awful! Have you tried Fentanyl? It's a very potent narcotic, over 80 times stronger than Morphine and it's available in a patch that is time released and worn for either 2 or 3 days, depending on the severity of pain. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Another alternative would be to look into getting a pain pump, which is basically an implanted device that delivers pain medications i...

oxycodone 30mg pain clinics
i have been having trouble getting a good dr who will wright oxycodone 30 mg . my back has been broke before and i was going all the way to florida 16 hour drive just to get meds so if anybody knows of any it would be helpfull i live in ky so as long as it is closer thats fine thank you .... ## Well, the main problem is really when you go in and ask for a specific medication, in a specific dosage. Many doctors will look at this as drug seeking behavior. Whenever you see a new doctor, you need to make certain that you don't demand specific treatment, but you do want to take your medical records with you, or see that copies are sent to them. That way, they can see what has and hasn't worked for you in the past, plus they can see the results from any prior tests you've had perf...

Day One Report, Lisinopril HCTZ 5 mg.
Age 44 Female, family history of heart attacks, strokes, hypertension. Finally went to the internist after feeling weird for about one year--I kept testing high BP repeatedly over the last year. I have 6 members of my family on lisinopril. Day One Lisiniopril HCTZ Report. To ease into it, I took a half pill (10 mg pill cut in half, so 5 mg). Side effects started within 2 or 3 hours. I had a (all too often these days) migraine when I woke up, so I cannot blame the drug for that. After I woke up, I took my BP 131/85, Pulse 83. Then I took my first half pill. Side effects: dry raspy irritated throat, it made it harder to talk at work, pretty bad muscle stiffness and cramping up and down my back (OUCH), general fatigue, weakness in arms, i tried to lift a laundry basket and i felt both of my u

Buro Sol discontinued?
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...

difference in metformin 500mg tab zyd and sandoz
I have taken metformin 500mg tabs Sandoz for years today when I picked up my medicine they gave me metformin 500 mg tab zyd. What is the difference in the two? ## Hello, Deb! How are you? Sandoz and Zydus are just the manufacturers, so that's the only difference based on what you've posted. Your pharmacy is just carrying one that's been manufactured by a different company. Learn more Metformin details here. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## that just happened to me also, i went from the sandoz to the zyd (metformin 500mg) , the zyd is bigger and ive been on it a couple weeks, ever since they switched, (same pharmacy,(walmart) same drugest) so why the 2 different pills?..back to my comment, ever since they switched me to this bigger pill ive had a hard time going ...

Weaning off pristiq
I just wanted to tell all of you trying to get off pristiq, its possible. I was on pristiq for severe panic attacks for 6 months. It saved my life. It gave me a chance to slow down my career, gave me a huge wakeup call. This drug put a cloud over my brain. I was not my happy, fun loving self. I was like a step ford wife. You cant wean off this pill. I was on 50mg. I did every other day for a month. Every third day for two weeks then cold turkey. It really was not so bad. I layer on my couch for three days, cried a bit and watched movies. I'm happily on all holistic medications, no longer a slave to pristiq. If I can beat anxiety, anyone can. My biggest advice.. Exercise. Next, surround yourself with positive people. Three, talk out your problems. Good luck. ## Fantastic advice and v...

is my doctor doing something illegal
my husband has been seeing his pain dr for over a year now..he only accepts cash($200 for every 2 weeks)..now i understand paying the $200 to be seen,but there was one time where for xmas the office was going to be closed for a week or 2..so when we came in,he had 2 scripts..1 for that time an 1 for 2 weeks from that date..now,my question falls..was it legal to charge us $400,instead off just the $200,cause we weren't coming bk in the next time? i felt like he was basically selling us the script!! how can he justify charging us for a "visit" we didn't need to come to? an now again,my husband was told last week the Dr would be out of town for a week an he needed to stop in early to pick up his script,there was only the desk nurse or secretary there,not sure if shes even a...

Daliresp Experience
I have been on Daliresp for one month. I have noticed significant improvement in my lungs. By that I mean the mucus is gone, wheezing is gone. My lungs seem to be getting clear and do not feel as heavy as they did before I started taking it. I have had my bouts of depression, I am never hungry, which is a problem because I am underweight as it is. Just wondering if anyone else has had success with this drug. I was hoping to get off oxygen at some point. Don't know if I can achieve that or not. ## I don't have a lot of information on this medication, since it is very new to the U.S. market and we haven't had a lot of posts about it, either, for the same reason. Have you tried discussing this with your doctor? They may have some ideas on how to safely increase your appetite an...
