Cymbalta 60 Side Effects
20 Replies RSS
I have been taking Cymbalta for 6 yrs. along with Wellbutrin(150mg.) could it cause sores in my mouth? could it cause my hands to shake once in a while? ## Hi Mary, One of the side effects of Cymbalta (Duloxetine) is an "uncontrollable shaking of a part of the body". It can also cause blisters or peeling skin, rashes, hives, swelling in the face, and unfortunately, much more than this. The link below lists the vast majority of possible side effects, but I would highly recommend talking to your doctor about switching medications or opting for a natural alternative to this prescription if the side effects are too persistent or severe: I hope this info helps! ## I have been taking Cymbalta for many years,and I see that I have many of the symptoms. What I fear is that the effect th...

Is this a Fluoxetine pill?

A109 20 mg dark blue oval capsule ## I also got the blue generic fluoxetine made by northstar and they made me crazy!!! I just called the manufacturer and they are taking this seriously: they are sending me a kit to send back the pills and they will consult with the FDA. Please call them to tell them the pills are bad. Northstar RX LLC Toll Free: 1-800-206-7821 ## I, too, received the Northstar fluoxetine and have been taking it for 8 days and was wondering what was wrong with me. It's like taking nothing--all the depression, weepiness, ups and downs are back. Please help me. ## CALL THEM!!! And call your doctor!! Get new "clean" pills and tell your doctor what happened. Northstar has been extremely diligent in reporting this to the appropriate authorities. You have to help ...

Cymbalta and fatigue
Post a Reply
I have been on Cymbalta for years now for depression and it works. My only problem is I have fatigue in the morning and afternoon, and its most common after eating. I have been diagnosed with mild sleep apnea and use a machine, but the fatigue will still be there. I have high blood pressure and thyroid issues. I have talked to doctor after doctor. I eat healthy and I exercise in the morning. I lost weight, and I still feel the fatigue. I don't drink caffeine, so coffee is not an option. This morning was worse, as I felt like I needed to get out and run around my car

Switching from pristiq to generic pristiq
39 Replies RSS
I was switched from Pristiq to generic Pristiq which if I understand right, is really Effexor. Is there a possibility this could be causing my severe fatigue? Has this happened to anyone else out there? ## My Insurance switched me to the generic (not my choice) about 3-4 weeks ago. Depression has been creeping in and I'm pretty concerned. Yesterday/last night was bad. Today was OK but my energy is not what it should be and my thinking/mood is not where it should be. Hoping to switch back but I don't know what is happening with the insurance...there is a $1000 penalty to go back to name brand!! ## Insurance is disgusting!! I actually feel ok depression wise and the fatigue turned out to be something else. I hope you stay stable ## Thanks. I'm glad your medication isn't th...

Bupropion: How did it effect your digestion?
2 Replies RSS
Hey everbody, for those on Bupropion, how did it effect your digestion? Especially those, who are having/had a "good" digestion with like 2 or 3 times defecation a day - did the Bupropion somehow made you constipated so that you couldnt go that often any more? And how long after the first pill did this start? Thanks much! ## This medication could cause constipation as a side effect, according to NIH reports, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. However, it really is not normal to defecate 2 to 3 times a day. Most people go once a day, or less. Has anyone else experienced this issue with this medication? Most people go once a day, or as little as once a week. ## Ofc it is normal to go 2-3 times a day (just check the transit times of food); howeve...

Citalopram Manufacturer Change
92 Replies RSS
Mail order changed my citalopram manufacturer from Amneal to Aurobindo. Have noticed side effect after the change. Should this be happening? Anyone els have this issue with manufacturer change? ## JC - I haven't been taking this med, but i wanted to share with you that it IS in fact possible to experience different effects between generic manufacturers. Even though ratios of active ingredients are supposed to be the same, the inert (inactive) ingredients are allowed to differ by a certain margin. Not to mention different manufacturing standards / facilities / etc. Sometimes if you mention this to your doctor or pharmacist, they can try to obtain the product from the other manufacturer, but this does not always work - it's all about supply chain and sometimes a specific manufactu...

Effects of Long Term Amitriptyline Use on the Heart
90 Replies RSS
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...

mirtazapine drug test

hi to all ive been on mirtazapine for a few months now and i had a drug test a few week ago and its came back positive for amphetamins i dont do drugs except what my doctor gives me im tryin to find any info on internet but no luck thanx for any replies ## Mirtazapine is a tetracyclic antidepressant, so it shouldn't show up on a drug test as anything. I also did some research with our resources, that contain various reports on what medications have shown false positives for certain things and Mirtazapine has not been shown to give a positive test for anything. Where you taking anything else at the time? Even if it was an over the counter product, please post back and let us know, so I can check for you. ## I take 45mg Avanza on prescription before bedtime each day. I also failed a d...

blue green capsule with an H and 192
1 Reply RSS
I found a green/blue oblong shaped pill. On the blue side it has an H on it, and on the green side it has 192. ## This capsule is manufactured by Camber Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 60mgs of Duloxetine, which is SNRI antidepressant. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, dry mouth, loss of appetite, and weight loss. Is there anything else I can help with?

When should I take my dose
1 Reply RSS
I just switch from 225mg of Effexor to trintellix 10mg & I am used to taking my meds in the morning when I get to work but am having really bad nausea for most of the day. I want to switch to taking it before bed but I don't want to mess up the rhythm. Any thoughts? ## Unless your doctor, or pharmacist instructs otherwise, you can usually make a clean switch, as long as it is within about 24 hours of the prior dosage. The FDA warns that this medication may cause nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings, and weight changes. Are you on any other medications? Some people do take it at night, to avoid experience the nausea, drowsiness, and dizziness during the day.

Lexapro day 7, up and down
1 Reply RSS
I just started lexapro for ocd, depression and general anxiety. The first day was weird, then it went up. I started to be more content and happy, with much less fear. Around day 5 I just became flat what is a horrible feeling, just like depression, not feeling anything. Then I just thought I'd surrender and wait it out. Today started off good and after a few hours I just went flat again. So it's like hope hope and then it's gone. Can anybody relate and is this normal (going up being happy and from one moment to another feeling nothing again)? ## Yes, that can be normal for the first 3 weeks, or so, according to FDA reports. You may also experience dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, and headache. It usually takes about 3 to 4 weeks for a medication in this class to reach its f...

Lexapro side effects
9 Replies RSS
I have been on Lexapro 10mg for 4 days.. Terrible nausea, diarrhea, clenching jaw. Has anyone felt this? Also my hands are lightly shaking. Wondering when it will stop? I do not feel better yet at all. I was prescribed it for depression and major anxiety. ## HI, Kelly! Sorry that you're feeling so awful. Side effects that severe are not normal and you should contact your doctor as soon as possible. I think this just may not be the right medication for you to take. Some mild nausea and diarrhea are normal, but not severe nausea and the clenching jaw can sometimes be the sign of a severe reaction. Learn more Lexapro details here. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## I had the same reaction, even to the point of possibly being hypomanic, but I enjoyed it. my pupils dilated, sw...

Wellbutrin xl dosage increase
32 Replies RSS
I started taking 150 mg of Wellbutrin xl for anxiety. My first two days were tough with increased symptoms, which the pharmacist had already warned me of. The horrible side effects got less and less as the days progressed. By day 8 I was feeling great, anxiety was still lingering, not as bad. On day 13, I started the 300 mg, that was 7 days ago. I take it every morning at 8am. I am feeling good in the morning and every day around 1pm I start feeling horrible. Suddenly I am feeling drugged, dizzy, nauseous and disoriented. I continued to take it hoping these side effects would taper off like they did with the 150 mg, but it doesn't seem to be getting any better. I am still feeling as horrible now as I did when I first started the dosage increase. Do I just need to give it some more t...

Success Stories

I have been put on doxepin for anxiety and depression. Could anyone please share success stories? HAs anyone not gained weight on it? Will I wake up on time for work and be able to function for the day? ## Hello, Shelly! How are you? I haven't taken it myself, but yes, there have been many success stories posted. This is a tricyclic antidepressant and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and sweating. Not everyone gains weight with it, either. That is just a possible side effect. The best thing to do is to maintain a healthy diet and get lots of proper exercise to help offset any that might occur. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I know it's been a few years, but how did doxepin work for You? I have been on it now for 5 days

Brintellix permanent withdrawal/brain damage
2 Replies RSS
Hi, I've been prescribed brintellix for the treatment of depression almost a year ago. I took 5 mg for a week, then up to 10 mg for two weeks, then up to 15, itching started so went back to 10 and then I got sick of this med so I dropped it alltogether. All in all, I took for 4-5 weeks. When I stopped taking it I started experiencing withdrawal symptoms similar to withdrawal from Effexor: Brain zaps, permanent agitation, permanent anger, inability to concentrate, stiff muscles. I think that these symptoms decreased somewhat but they're not fully gone and I'm still experiencing them almost a year later(!). Did someone else react in a similar manner? Was permanent brain damage caused? I don't know what to do and I certainly can't go on living this way. Thank you ## How...

Hi, I've been on zoloft 150 mg for a year and a half and it has been a blessing and allowed me to function again and be normal from my anxiety. I got a 4.0 gpa after barely being able to even attend class, however a month ago I got in a bad car crash I rear ended someone going 60 mph because everyone stopped and I dozed for a second- ever since the crash my anxiety has been horrible and back to how I was before zoloft- is it possible the Zoloft stopped working, any suggestions/thoughts would be helpful ## Also wanted to note besides some whiplash I was fine didn't want to get medical help because of $$ ## Do you have any idea why you dozed off while driving? According to NIH studies Zoloft can cause drowsiness, and dizziness as side effects... and 150mgs if a pretty high dosage....

Small round white pill with 2C on top of the score line and 16 on the bottom. What is this? ## Hello, Tammy! How are you? Is the marking possibly ZC 16? Can you please double check and post back? There is a tablet manufactured by Zydus Pharmaceuticals that matches this description with the marking ZC 16. They list it as containing 20mgs of Paroxetine, which is an SSRI antidepressant. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight changes.
