Lexapro and word confusion
2 Replies RSS
Hello! I started 10 mg cipralex one month ago and each day I feel Like a new cognitive issue is coming up. The last 4 days I have been saying the wrong words in sentences like "watch your shoes" instead of "wear your shoes". This is driving me nuts. Has anyone else experienced these things while on cipralex? ## Im on quetiapine and venlafaxine. The same happens to me. Ill mix up words too. ## Thank you for the reply. It makes me feel better to know that I am not the only one. I was starting to worry that I was getting early onset dementia!

Dangers of mirtazapine
405 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...

Lexapro Brand versus generic escitalopram
159 Replies RSS
I have taken 30mg of Lexapro for past 4 years. After the deaths of my son and his wife in a plane crash the depression and anxiety were more than I could bear. This past May I was changed to the generic escitalopram. God Forbid!!!! What a nightmare. Within three weeks I was suicidal, I was going through SSRI withdrawals which are vicious. I am now paying over $225.00 per month for Brand Lexapro as my insurance will NOT cover it even with prior auth or any other reason. My Medicare Advantage plan leaves a lot to be desired even though I pay a $152.00 per month premium. Has anyone else had problems with the generic Lexapro? My pharmacist said I am not the first. ## I've been on Lexapro for 4+ years and got switched to generic as well. Initially the generic just didn't work (it was...

Bupropion XL by Cipla Pharmaceuticals
27 Replies RSS
My pharmacy has been giving me refills of the generic bupropion for my last two refills that are manufactured by CIPLA. The pill is oblong and has the number 13 on one side and what appears to be a capital I on the other side. I do not feel that this generic is doing much for me. I have researched this manufacture they are located in India. Approximately 45% of the medications that are sold in the United States are manufactured in foreign countries. I am going to call my pharmacy to see if they can get one of the generics that were previously dispensed to me. The buyers for drugs at pharmacies look to find lower priced drugs, which I understand. I have been taking Wellbutrin XL 150 mg three tablets daily for about eight years including the generic form. This medication helped my severe ...
