Nausea & Vomiting Overview

An antiemetic is a drug that is effective against vomiting and nausea.

is anybody being prescribed scopolamine for depression
162 Replies RSS
is anyone being prescribed scopolamine off-label for depression? the NIMH is doing clinical trials for same and apparently it works, however my p-doc won't prescribe it for me. ## Since it is only in clinical trials, this does not necessarily mean that it works for depression. The trials may be showing some positive results, so far, but there is a lot more involved to making sure it is working and safe to be used that way. As to your doctor not prescribing it, that is entirely up to him. He is not obligated to prescribe something, just because you learned some information on it and want him to do so. What are you currently taking? ## Yes. I was in the study back in 2006 and have been successfully depression free thanks to scopolamine, taken only for a few days every 3-4 months, with...

Changing from Cilift to Nuzak
1 Reply RSS
Good Morning, I was on Cipramil for many years then hit very hard financial times so had no option but to change to Cilift (40mg/day). I cant say I have been particularly emotionally stable but I am going through dreadfully difficult financial issues so I don't know if the Cilift is just battling to work or if it is not working at all. I have now had to resort to going to our provincial hospital for my meds and they don't have Cilift, the only SSRI they have is Nuzak which has now been given to me (40mg/day). The Dr did not say anything about a change over period. So my question is this: do I stop the cilift one day and start the Nuzak the next? Will there be withdrawals from the cilift? I have been having dreadful panic attacks which I take Alzam for. Will the Nuzak stop them? ...

Do you gain weight from this capsules?? (Iam not a mom or pregnanand in all the reviews I only read of pregnant woman or woman with babies drinking it?) Should I worry???? ## Hello, Bernice! How are you? No, it is actually just a type of tranquilizer that can help you sleep. It's just commonly used by women that are breast feeding, because it can increase their milk production as a side effect. Other side effects as listed by the FDA may also include nausea, dizziness and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

How are you? How long have you been taking the medications? They do take a bit of time to work, which is why they are usually prescribed for anywhere from 7 to 14 days. The brownish discharge is likely due to some spotting, which vaginal creams may cause as side effects. The FDA lists the typical side effects of the antibiotic as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea and dairy products may cause you to not absorb as much of them as needed, so your ...
