I have been on norco 10 for about 10 months. The first 2 to 3 months I was taking 2 to 4 a day. The last 6 or 7 months I have been taking 1 and on a very rare occasion I have 2. I stopped 2 days ago and the nights are horrible. Can't sleep, have very bad RLS and my stomach hurts! Shoul I start taking again and tapper down? ## Hello, Brent! How are you? According to the FDA, the symptoms you've described are all normal withdrawal effects. However, since you were down to taking so few for the last few months, they likely won't get much worse and shouldn't last more than a week or 2. You may also experience chills, nausea, drowsiness and diarrhea. How are you feeling, now? ...

Stopped sprintec after only a week?
3 Replies RSS
I stopped taking my birth control sprintec after a week due to health issues but it has been three weeks since the last pill and still no period. I am four days late from my regular period and I was wondering when it should start. I did take a pregnancy test 2 days before my period should have started and it was negative. ## Hello, Stacey! How are you? Even though you only took it for a week, you likely threw off your natural hormonal balance, so it will probably take awhile, before things balance back out and return to normal. Other effects of stopping it may also include headache, weight changes, mood swings and irregular periods, as listed by the FDA. If there is no change, after a few more weeks, you should consult your doctor to be sure. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Y... ...

1 Reply RSS
i have been taking Phenergan for over 6 years after several back fusions. I have become very ill after stopping the use of Phenergan with extreme nausea and headaches and flue like symptoms. This has been happening for over a week and I am getting sicker every day. I finally took a phenergan pill last night and all of the bad symptoms stopped. How do I stop using this drug without becoming so ill? ## Phenergan contains the active ingredient Promethazine, which is an antihistamine that's also often used to prevent nausea and vomiting. Since you've been taking it for so long, your body has basically become dependent on it and is no longer use to dealing with certain stimuli without it, thus if you stop taking it abruptly, you experience rebound effects which may be worse than what... ...

Tryptomer 10 Mg Dose
10 Replies RSS
My mom started Tryptomer 10 last Thursday. Took full tablet every night for 3 days. Felt nausea and drowsiness. Doc said to reduce it to half immediately (4th day). Half tablet also not suiting as she is feeling drowsy 24 hours. Can I stop it completely with immediate effect? Hardly been 7 days since shes taking it? ## Have you consulted her doctor about stopping it? Tryptomer contains Amitriptyline, which is an antidepressant and, side effects, such as the drowsiness are quite normal for this class of medications. They can last for as long as 4 to 6 weeks, while her body adjusts to the medication, then they should hit their peak in severity and start to taper off. As to stopping it, after that short of a time period, no there really shouldn't be any problems with it, if her doctor ... ...

if i have been taking a 30 day supply of endocet and run out and then stop taking it after my last pill what will happen??? ## i would like to stop my bupropion xl tabs (300mg) i take one a day. what is the best way to do this,what are the side effects! ## what will happen if i stop taking medicine thyronorme 100mcg ## Regarding the Endocet, even though it is a narcotic, if you've only been taking it for 30 days, stopping it shouldn't result in any severe issues. You may experience some mild withdrawal symptoms, so it may be annoying for a few days, but they should pass fairly quickly. However, everyone is different, so this may not apply to you and if you suffer serious issues you should consult your doctor. The Bupropion works on brain chemicals, so if you've been taking i... ...

do you take the blue pills for sprintec on your period
2 Replies RSS
I came on my period twice this month I started at the beginning of the month and I'm back on again at the end of the month while on my blue pills for sprintec, if I stop taking the pill and just wait until I get the next pack, will my period stop? ## Hello, Sabrina! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Irregular breakthrough bleeding is normal for the first 3 months, or so, while your body is getting used to this medication and no, stopping them likely won't help, because the last week of the pack are actually placebo pills with no active ingredients that normally induce your period. The FDA lists the other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, headache, weight gain, irritability and PMS-like symptoms. If the bleeding is very annoying... ...

took kapidex for 40 days, stopped 5 days ago and now my insides are on fire and have dirreah. How long do the withdrawl effects last ## Kapidex contains the active ingredient Dexslansoprazole, it is a Proton Pump Inhibitor used to treat conditions such as heartburn and GERD. That said, 40 days is not too long of a time to be on this, though some of what you are experiencing is probably a rebound effect from stopping it abruptly. The worst of the withdrawal effects should start to taper off after a week to 10 days, though some may still linger for a little while afterwards. Have you spoken to your doctor about this? ...

I am 16 and in my first month of taking loestrin. i have been sick to my stomach on and off every day since i started. I only at the end of my first week and am considering stopping especially after reading about the side effects of others. How long does nausousness last? ## Hi, Nan! Sorry about the nausea that you're experiencing. However, it's difficult to say how long it will last, because it can vary from person to person, but side effects to hormonal contraceptives like this may linger for as long as 2 to 3 months, while your body is adjusting to it. Nausea and the other side effects you've read about are possible with any form of hormonal contraception, including the patches, shots and IUD. The best thing to do would be to contact your doctor to discuss your concerns, ... ...

3 Replies RSS
I just started on 5mg of Lisinopril. I feel a little tired while exercising but nothign else so far - how long does it take side effects to start if you're going to have them? ## You should start experiencing them within a few days after you start the medication and they will usually last anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks, which is about the same amount of time that it takes your body to get used to the medication. Learn more Lisinopril details here. From personal experience, the side effect I can tell you to keep any eye out for is the dry cough. When I was taking it, it took about 2 months for that to start and nothing relieves it, other than stopping the medication and switching to something else. The problem with it though, is that the cough is similar to the one you may get at the sta... ...

I have been on it for 2 months and the side effects have been awful. I couldn't stand it any more. I stopped taking it last Wednesday. It's been 5 days. I now have swollen ankles. Is this something to worry about? What is the risk of stopping and how long does it take to get it out of your system? ## Hello, Lindyann! How are you? Yes, you shouldn't have stopped it abruptly, because that can cause a rebound effect, such as what you're experiencing with the edema. You may also have dangerously elevated blood pressure. Please consult your doctor as soon as possible to have things checked out for your own safety. You may require medical treatment and will need to try a different blood pressure medication. Are there any other questions or concerns? ...

Why are you stopping it, already? ## I am doing well my symptoms only lasted two and a half weeks from the withdrawals. I stop taking it because of the side effects that it was causing.

I used Daxid 50 last 5months, according 2 doctor now I feel better can I stop this I feel tired, headhche and many more problems thanks ## HI, Sameer! Sorry about the side effects you're experiencing. Daxid contains the active ingredient Sertraline, which is an SSRI antidepressant and it can cause those types of side effects in some people that take it. However, you should consult your doctor, before stopping it, for two reasons. The first is that it could be that it's just the medication making you feel better, so a relapse is possible if you stop taking it. And the second is due to the fact that if you stop taking it suddenly, you could suffer a severe rebound effect. Learn more Daxid details here. Have you talked to your doctor about stopping the medication? ...

I was given 10 mg of Metoclopram to counteract the severe nausea from getting off Cymbolta. Now I have severe dizziness. Is there anything I can do to stop the dizziness? I've been off cymbolta 6 days (20mg). How long will the headaches and nausea last? ## As to the effects of stopping the Cymbalta, if you were taking it for a long time, then it may take a month or more for them to wear off. Ideally, these medications should be slowly tapered, to prevent the worst of these effects. Learn more Cymbalta details here. And the dizziness from the Metoclopramide can take about that long to wear off, as your body gets used to it, too. Learn more Metoclopramide details here.
