Effects of Long Term Amitriptyline Use on the Hear
After 20 years of taking amitriptyline for headaches I would like to find people who have had any heart related side effects after long term amitriptyline use. ## Very little is known about the long-term effects of most drugs for depression. The biggest problem reported currently is relapse, when the medication is discontinued. You can read more about antidepressants here: As to any cardiac effects, I am only finding warnings that problems may occur if it is used with some specific other medications. Does anyone else know anything about this? ## I have been on Elavil for 20 years and 100mg at bedtime and I don't recommend anyone taking it long term. I have heart palpatations every day which was determined from Dr. that it was hormonal, but I don't believe it. I tried to decrease...

NUSAM 400 Mg tablet.
I have got fatty and enlarged liver.I was alcoholic since last 10 years.My daily consumption was 6 to 7 pegs. I have stopped taking alcohol since last 2 years. Recently due to some other problem I am under the treatment of a fameous gastroenterologist in Kolkata. He has prescribed me NUSAM 400 Mg 1 tab thrice daily alongwith other medicines (tab Razo 20 mg,Pentasa 500 mg etc.). Now I want to know the following:1) How long I have to take NUSAM 400? 2) Is there any side effect of NUSAM 400? Is there any alternative cheaper medicine equevalent to Nusam 400? ## Hello Birendra, Based on my research, NUSAM 400 is a nutritional supplement that contains the active ingredient S-Adenosyl methionine (ademetionine, AdoMet, SAM, SAMe, SAM-e).

Angelique Hormone tablets
I am in my late forties, for the last 3 month my period has been so heavy that I can't go to work. I am messing up my self, bedding etc. I need to know whether angelique would help me. ## Unfortunately, since I have no way of knowing what is causing your problem, I really can't answer that question. Angelique is a form of hormone replacement therapy, that contains Estradiol and Drospirenone and as such, there are some conditions it can help with, but it is not appropriate to treat everything. Have you consulted a doctor? Hormones are only going to be appropriate, if your condition is caused by a lack of the ones this medication contains. If it is caused by something else, such as ovarian cysts, then you would need the treatment appropriate to treat them. ## I 've been having...

Adderall 30mg Which Generic Brand Is Better
Is the round pink 30 mg adderal generic name Sandoz/Eon with the markings of CDR 136 on one side more or less effective than the oval orange 30 mg adderal generic name Barr/Teva with the markings of b974 on one side and 30 on the other side? What is the most effective/ potent adderal that is generic and 30 mg? ## Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each of these brands, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. So it's quite possible that you may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they are the same drug & same dosage); mostly due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. Have you taken either one of them yet? I'd probably suggest giving them eac...

Hyoscyamine (Levsin)
My mother's nursing home says they can no longer give my mother this drug because it is no longer being made. Is this true? Two days without the drug and she starts throwing up from too much saliva in her stomach. She is 89 and will die without it. Is there another equivalant drug avaliable?? Please tell me where to turn. Thanks so much. Virginia Holloway Baton Rouge, La. vaholloway at aol ## Hi Virginia, From what I found, it is just a rumor that it has been withdrawn from the market. "RUMOR: Hyoscyamine (Levsin, Levbid, etc) is going off the market. TRUTH: All hyoscyamine products are unapproved. They came on the market before FDA approval was required. The FDA hasn't taken any action against these products...yet. But several companies have voluntarily withdrawn their prod...

Why doesn't this work for my pain?-hydrocodone acetaminophen 5 325

Now she has given me Vicodin 5/325 and they are not working, not even 2 at a time. Why don't they work for me but the Percocet does? How do I tell my doctor they are not working without her thinking I just want Percocet? ## just tell your doctor.i'm having the same problem with my new doctor.and start looking for another doctor without telling anyone just in case.your in my prayers ## Percocet contains Acetaminophen and Oxycodone, while this contains a different narcotic, Hydrocodone.

Oligo Care tablet Is Effective ?
Doctor prescribe the oligocare Tab i have Sperm count 28 million motility less then 20 can you advice to take that tablet ## Oligocare is a nutritional supplement, it is given to help with fertility issues in men, because sometimes a lack in the vital nutrients it contains can contribute to fertility issues, such as a low sperm count. However, whether or not it will help you depends on what has caused your problem. As a nutritional supplement, there is really no known harm to taking it to see if it will help you, unless a doctor has specifically instructed you not to take it. Are there any other comments or questions? ## Oligocare, benefits and side effects.

Watson 932 Opposed To Endocet 10 325 Mg
Do any of the members of this forum have an opinion as to the effectiveness of Endocet v. Watson 932 equivelant? ## They are both supposed to contain 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, but since there can be fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredients in generics, as well as in the fillers used, how they work for anyone can be different. While others may have gotten good or bad results from one of the other of them, the only way to find out how they work for you is to actually try it. This is a narcotic pain reliever and may cause side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Are there any comments or questions? ## For me personally the Watson 932 works much better than endocet 712....I can tell a BIG difference in my pain relief ## Most of...

ic gabapentin 300 mg bladder side effects
I take 100 ic gabapentin 3 times/day for sciatica. Now I find that my bladder leaks about once a week which is unnerving. Has this been reported as a side effect? ## Didn't give enough information about my bladder leakage. The leakage is small and occurs in my sleep. ## Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that has also been proven to help with certain types of nerve pain. This is not listed among the normal side effects, which may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and weight gain. You can read more on it here: Have you talked to your doctor about this? ## Have not talked to doctor about occasional bladder leakage while sleeping since starting Gabapentin. I would like to know if any other persons who take this drug have had this experience. Let me kinow. Thanks ## Having the same pr...
