I was just wondering if anyone has drank with this med and were there any side effects ? I've been on lexapro 10 mil for a month and am feeling great but I am petrified to even atempt to drink alcohol,but would like to try . So if anyone could help that would be great. ## I have been on Lexapro for 3 years. I drink about twice a week and everything seems to be fine. I have noticed that if you drink heavly for a few nights in a row you will feel a slight depression. Just don't over do it. I was worried at first also. ## Lexapro is an antidepressant. Drinking alcohol is not recommended, as alcohol is a major depressant, and undoes the work the medication does. ## Never do that! I was on that medicine for 2 years, and I was never able to drink! the first time I drank when I was on ...

Doxepin 50 mg side effects
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking Doxepin for about a year and I have the side effect of puffy cheeks. How long does it take for the weight gain and puffy cheeks to disappear? ## Hello, Mary! How are you doing? Has there been any change? The weight gain can be a typical side effect and, while it can last the duration of the time you're taking the medication, it usually levels off after a few months, as in it should hit a peak and then stop, you may not lose what you've gained, but shouldn't keep gaining more, according to FDA reports. How much have you gained? As to the puffy cheeks, that is not a reported side effect, though it could be related to the weight gain. Have you consulted your physician?

123/IG blue oval pills for toothache
1 Reply RSS
I need to know if the blue oval pills with 123 on one side and IG on the other side is good for treating a toothache? ## Can you please double check the marking and post back? The closest I've found has the marking IG 213, which is manufactured by Camber Pharmaceuticals, they list it as containing 50mgs of Sertraline, which is an antidepressant that is also used to help treat anxiety, so not it would not help with a toothache. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight gain.

Wellbutrin and anxiety
1 Reply RSS
Does anyone else have major anxiety while taking Wellbutrin xl ? I started taking 300mg in September and it has lifted my depression immensely . But the anxiety is really getting bad and makes me question every decision I make in day to day life . I feel like I'm going crazy ! Anyone else have this issue or even advice /opinions would be helpful ! ## Unfortunately, the FDA lists anxiety as being one of the most common side effects that this medication is known to cause, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, and nervousness. I tried it years ago, for smoking cessation, and it made me feel like I had just drunk several pots of coffee, so I had to stop taking it. Have you informed your doctor?

PAR Bupropion XL 300MG vs Actavis
1 Reply RSS
I've been taking the generic brand PAR of Buproion LX 300MG for over 2 years and haven't run into any problems. Walgreens switched the brand to Actavis generic this month and I feel extremely depressed. I plan on seeking medical attention from my doctor right away-- but I'd like to hear about your experiences to not feel so alone. I started taking Actavis around January 15th and I've noticed my mood has completely shifted and no longer feel like myself. PAR seemed to work well for me. Before I switched brands my depression was manageable but now it's out of control. I constantly feel angry, annoyed, and highly irritated and it scares me. Can generic brands of the same exact medication cause your mental health to decline? ## Hi Emma, Sorry to hear about your reaction ...

Miratazapine and Restless Legs
Post a Reply
I've moved from 15mg to 30mg and although the sleepiness subsided quite quickly after beginning the 15mg, the restless legs I have got since taking the 30mg is not subsiding and driving me insane. As advised I take the tablet at night, go to bed as per usual shattered and looking forward to sleep, only to find I am kept up for a minimum of three hours by restless legs. Is there anything I can take to reduce the effect of the restless legs - painkillers etc, that is safe to take alongside Miratazapine???

Wellbutrin program discontinued at Direct Success Pharmacy
18 Replies RSS
I've been getting name brand Wellbutrin XL 300 from Direct Success Pharmacy for several years, but I just found out yesterday that the cash program is no longer available as of October 31, 2016. So, I will be forced to switch to the generics again. I have had side effects from three of the generics on the market. I've tried Actavis, Mylan and Par. The best of the worst was probably Actavis so I guess I will try it again. Any advice? I am not eligible for any of the other patient assistance programs for the name brand drug. ## My copay with insurance would still be $900 a month for the brand drug, and the one of the patient assistance programs said it would give me $75.00 off of that copay. That still won't work for me. ## What types of side effects do you experience from the...
