This thread is an offshoot of a related one that discussed Scopolamine as a treatment for depression. /Discuss/is-anybody-being-prescribed-scopolamine-for-depression-209022_s2.htm It was recommended by the members of that thread that one be started that directly relates to ketamine and it's use to treat depression.

Day 1 of xulane instead of ortho evra
I HATE this new patch already. Did not adhere to my skin as easily as ortho and came off about 4 hours after applying. I've been on ortho evra for 5 months loved it and never once had a problem but I already can't stand xulane and so I don't know what I'm going to do ! :( My insurance switched me to xulane because it's the generic brand to ortho evra. This sucks I hate life. Ps. I'm 18 ## I'm 22 and I was on ortho evra for a YEAR and they changed me to this Xulane and good god I hate it. After a week of the switch I was in the emergency room passing clots and feeling like I was in labor, they thought I had PID and put me on antibiotics which kicked my ass even worse, but the bleeding stopped, and yesterday I was cleared to stop taking them because all my labs...

generic percocet 10 a333 white oblong
Anyone had stomach / intestinal effects from this particular form? I've been switched from Watson 932 10/325 because of drug store supply. ## Hi Michael, According to the Oxycodone Drug Details page, this medication can cause GI related side effects such as: diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, vomiting, urine retention, and loss of appetite. I don't know which of these symptoms you may be experiencing, but I believe they can be relatively common amongst other possible side effects. It could also be due to having a different set of inactive ingredients (otherwise known as binders/fillers). If you have a known allergy to things like corn starch (a gluten derivative) or propylene glycol (which is also used in motor oil for your car), then this might be worth looking into. I hav...

does subutex have sulfa in it
I have been on suboxone for around 2 months in the beginning it made me very sick for a week and now all of a sudden I am getting flushed on my neck and chest my skin itches and feels like it's on fire and my cheeks and hands swell it subsides slightly by the next morning but comes back in full effect after I take it again, my Dr says it's probably not a reaction to suboxone but I can't see it being anything else. I'm allergic to sulfa as well. Can anyone help ## Yes, Suboxone can make you very sick. Doctors don't know what they are taking about half the time. I was started on Suboxone and was on it for.several months. I was always nauseated and I could not digest any solid food. I lived on jarred baby food and nutrition drinks for nine months. All the time I kept as...

Warfarin (Coumadin) and PT-INR levels
I am 19 years old and have had 4 blood clots so far due to a birth control pill. I have to go every week and get my INR levels checked. Right now I am taking 4 mg on even days and 5 mg on odd days. My levels go from 1.7 to 4.4 to 3.8 to 2.4. I really dont like going every week to get my finger poked, especially at my age. Is there a recommendation that anyone can give me, like a different blood thinner, that I can talk to my doctor about? Or just any advice will help. Thanks ## Hi Julie, I'm sorry to hear about your situation, that sounds rough. I don't have any experience with blood thinners so unfortunately I can't recommend any new ones to you, but according to live strong.com, there are foods that act as natural blood thinners. Maybe you incorporate some of these foods i...

However, I do not have any information regarding the appropriate amount for children. So, you may wish to check with your doctor or pharmacist, before using it. The Pizotifen is an antihistamine, so it may cause side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness and dry mouth. Has his doctor recommended this? ## my daughter is 1 years old and quite skinny .........please cn you tell what syrup will be the best to use for her gai...

Will Oxycontin Be Changed Back To Original Formula
is Oxycontin going back to their old formula? OC instead of OP. ## At this time, Purdue has no plans to return to the original formula. They released this new one, with the specific intention of helping to prevent abuse of the product and discontinued making the original, when they did so. They claim, however, that it works the same and causes the same side effects: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## They re not even remotely close to the original OC formula. I'm concerned about what this new formula might be doing to me. At least I knew the olf formula eventually disolved, I'm not sure about this new version. Hopefully someone will make a similiar version as soon as they are allowed. I think the original patent exp...

Propan Multivitamins
how long will i take propan multivitamins to have ? ## HOW LONG I WILL TAKE PROPAN MULTIVITAMINS TO ENSURE THAT IT WILL EFFECT? ## Well, since it is just a multivitamin, there is no harm in taking it everyday, on a long-term basis, as long as you don't overdo it by taking more than you should. As to how long before it has an effect, this isn't something that is really studied, since they are supplements, rather than actual drugs. Beneficial effects won't happen overnight, but it will immediately start to improve your levels of the vital nutrients it contains. It's listed as containing: Buclizine 25mg, Iron 80mg, nicotinamide 10mg, B1 10mg, B12 5mcg, B2 1mg and B6 5mg. Are there any other comments or questions? ## what is the possible time if i am going to take propan wit...

focalin addiction!!
My first semester in college was a disaster as I began at the age of 25 and only 3 months after leaving an all together different environment in the military where I served 4 tours in the Middle East. I never missed a class and yet my GPA at the end was a 1.75. I literally couldn’t absorb anything in class, fought off falling asleep more often than not, and couldn’t seem to apply my discipline to making myself sit and read. So, in the Fall of ’05 I began taking Focalin 10mg and the difference was night and day. Not only did I retain information from class, but I was able to sit down and read without losing focus, I actually enjoyed it, and my second semester GPA was a 3.63! Now it is the beginning of Fall 2008, I graduated in May, and have started an already successful...

Anyone Experiencing Missed Periods And Slight Weight Gain On Lo Loestrin Fe Birth Control
I have been on this pill since March and only got my period the first month I was on it and it was very light and only lasted a couple of days. haven't gotten it since. I have taken tests...all negative. Any one else experiencing this? ## Since there are hormonal based contraceptive tablets, both of these symptoms can be normal side effects of using the medication. There is really no harm in skipping your menstrual cycle, there are even contraceptives on the market that are specifically designed to let you skip for several months in a row. However, if you are concerned, you should consulted your doctor. Are there any other questions? ## I probably started taking this in April/May. I can't remember exactly. For the first three packs I didn't get a period. On the fourth pack I...

hydroxyzine
what is it used for ## what is this medication for is it to allow one to sleep ## What is Hydroxyzine given for and how long shoul one take it. I take 3 a day of Hydroxyzine HCL 10 mg. per day. What are the side effects ? ## Hydroxyzine is used primarily as an antihistamine for the treatment of itches and irritations, an antiemetic for the reduction of nausea, as a weak analgesic by itself and as an opioid potentiator, and as an anxiolytic for the treatment of anxiety. As far as the length of time one should be taking this drug, is up to the doctor who prescribed it to you and whether or not you are experiencing severe adverse reactions; whether or not the drug is working properly for your condition; or other factors. Generally the label on the bottle states how long and how much one sh...

I take Lamotrigine one does of 25mg daily for the treatment/prevention of Temporal Lobe Nocturnal Seizures.

I have been taking Brufen, but have run out and cant afford more. I have Celebrex tablets from a previous knee injury and wish to use if safe to do so? ## Hello, Jacquie! How are you? I didn't find any interactions listed, but it is always best to double check such information to be sure. You should also make sure that it is safe for you take NSAIDs. Celebrex may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Verwon, thanks so much for the response...
