nexito 10 - is this useful in Restlessness legs and low back pain
3 Replies RSS
hi,i am getting RLS (restless leg syndrome) in both legs over soles and low back pain (mainly in left) and sometime knee joint (very rare). I believ these symptoms are due to some nerve disorder reasons. My nephrologist prescribed me nexito 10 once in night. I do take other BP medicines as well. I don't have disbetic.After reading most of the articles on meds it seems nexito 10 is for depression. Can anybody help me to know is nexito 10 is right medcine for my symptoms. ## Nexito contains the active ingredient Escitalopram, which is an SSRI antidepressant and they can sometimes help with nerve pain, due to the way they act on brain chemicals. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and weight changes. Learn more Nexito details here. Is there anything else I can help wi...

What is a pink round pill that's blank on one side and has mx32 on the other side? ## This tablet is manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 20mgs of Citalopram, which is an SSRI antidepressant. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

Effexor nightmares
1 Reply RSS
Does anyone else awaken from their sleep almost in zombie mode while on Effexor? It usually takes me a good 5 minutes to completely collect my thoughts. Lol ## Yes, that can be a normal side effect of most antidepressants, according to FDA reports. They can cause REM onset latency, which means it takes longer to enter the deep dreaming REM phase of slumber and you spend a shorter amount of time in it than usual. This can cause disrupted sleep, odd/unusual dreams, and difficulty awakening. How long have you been taking it? I've found that things usually improve after a few weeks of taking them.

is any one here, who is taking zoloft again with success? ## It did not work for me, when I tried to take it, again, after being off of it for several years. I started getting all the horrible side effects, including severe depression. How is it working for you? The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings, and weight changes. Can anyone else chime in with their personal experiences?

Can Wellbutrin SR be taken once a day?
1 Reply RSS
Recently I started taking Wellbutrin SR (generic). I'm prescribed 100 mg twice daily. However, I've been taking been taking all 200 mg once a day in the morning. Ultimately, is the SR version still effective if only taken once a day? Why do people usually take it twice a day? Will I experience any disadvantages by taking it all at once? Today is my 8th day on Wellbutrin. I definitely feel SOME improvement. ## It is usually best to take it twice daily, as directed, due to the fact that its efficacy depends on it being maintained at a certain level in your body. Taking them both, at once, does not provide you a full 24 hours of medication. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. Is there anything else I can help w...

What does Doxepin show up as on a Urine Test??
7 Replies RSS
I need to know if it shows up as anything on a standard U.A. and if so, what does it show as? I have to take monthly tests for work but don't want to get in trouble just for taking one of my old Doxepins when I need one. It's a 'drug free' work place and they won't care if it's from my old prescription or not, they will just fire me. So any info would help. Thanks. ## Okay, the first fact of relevance is that whether or not they are a drug free workplace, they cannot, under federal law, deny anyone the use of legally prescribed medications. The only policy they can have is against using them illegally. If someone has a current, legal prescription and they fired them for detecting it, they would have severe legal problems on there hands. There are only certain exc...

I can't remember the name. It was a Soletab. It was white and someone sweet when i put it under my tounge. I think it was also an anti-depressant.

effexor and adderall
Post a Reply
I have been taking adderall ir 10mg twice daily and recently was prescribed 75mg Venlafaxine (effexor) one daily. And ive been noticing that my adderall has not been working and have been very out of focused and tired even when taking my medications. I may be building a tolerance to adderall, but that still doesnt explain why it would stop working as well very sudden. Has anyone else experience effexor causing adderall not to be as effective?

Prozac Success Story
Post a Reply
I don’t find a lot of positive stories about antidepressants, or I find stories where people are taking the antidepressant the wrong way... I wanted to share my experience. A positive one. I’ve had generalized anxiety disorder, SEVERE OCD, and panic disorder for as long as I can remember. My first memory of having an episode was when I was 4 years old at my kindergarten interview. I feel as though I was born with the illnesses mentioned above, right from the womb. When I was a child I was extremely anxious, had bad separation anxiety from my parents and had extreme OCD, I was just a kid and thought that the way I was feeling is how all kids felt, I didn’t realize that I was different. This went on, and got even worse in middle school. I began developing trichtilomania ...

Effects of Long Term Amitriptyline Use on the Heart
83 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...

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.

I have been on Cymbalta for 7 yrs. For the last 4 yrs I've been on 120mg per day. I have dealt with many, many side effects, however it helped me so much I put up with them. But the last two years I started having severe heart palpitations and extreme bouts of fatigue. I had many cardiac test and was eventually diagnosed with a heart arythemia. And now last month I was diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency with my cortisol levels dangerously low. My FP doctor referred me to a Endocrinologist, but before I could get there I was hospitalized 4 days with pneumonia. Extreme Adrenal insufficiency causes fluid to build in your lungs. Coincidence? I don't know? Has anyone else on Cymbalta had symptoms of Adrenal fatigue? Has anyone else been on Cymbalta for 7-8 yrs? ## Actually, many me...

when should lexamil be taken
1 Reply RSS
I started taking Lexamil 10mg two days ago. I want to know when i should take my Lexamil (day or night) because i feel like sleeping the whole day? ## Drowsiness can be a normal side effect, according to the NIH. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. You can take it at night, if the works better for you, unless your doctor has stated otherwise. Some people do, to avoid the drowsiness during the day. Are you on any other medications?
