What happens if you suddenly stop taking endocet

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... ...

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, ... ...

just started Lisinopril - what to expect?
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? ...

Hi there, My Boyfriend was prescribed Topzole for 2 weeks for his bad heart burn and heavy acid reflux. He is worried however after reading on the internet that bad side effects it may have lasting up to a few months EG: hair loss? is this a possibility? Is this the best route to go? He wants to stop taking it after only a day. I am worried however that stopping it ma not be the best solution as he has only had the Nausea thus far. ## Hello, Kerry! How are you? No, if he experiences any of the side effects, they shouldn't last longer than a week or so, after finishing it. He may also experience dizziness, flatulence and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

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? ...

Dizziness and Metoclopram
2 Replies RSS
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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks for the information. I was only on Cymbolta 7 weeks (20 mg) and the... ...

nuvigil crash
2 Replies RSS
No withdrawal side effects. If you have been awake and had no sleep for a long time you may feel extremely tired. The worst effects I had would be severe muscle pain, espesciall in the neck and chest. They were bad enough to make me stop taking it. These were not withdrawal effects but were an adverse reaction to the drug itself. They continue for about a week after the onset of pain and stopping the Nuvigil. ## Hey Richard, sorry to hear about the severe muscle pain you experience while taking Nuvigil. Hopefully this can at least help other patients know what to watch out for, or in this case, "feel" for. Also, thanks for clarifying that what you experienced were not withdrawal effects, but actually side effects... I know you had mentioned that these symptoms lasted for an enti... ...

Clonotril contains the active ingredient Clonazepam, which is a Benzodiazepine and, if you have been on them for a long time, it can cause some dangerous withdrawal effects if you stop taking it abruptly. These withdrawals can include life threatening seizures, so you should consult your doctor, before stopping it, so they can help you do so in a proper manner. ## Hi Verwon, I have a similar concern and would be glad if you could help.I was on Clonotril 0.25 since 2yrs now along with Rexipra-10 mg.i am experiencing severe stomach disorders while changing the dosage.

I am feeling very nauseous since doing this could this be connected. ## Hello, Darbie! How are you? Yes, that was a pretty rapid taper, so withdrawal effects, such as nausea, dizziness and diarrhea are to be expected. Why did you stop taking it?

nuzak withdrawl
1 Reply RSS
I was on 10mg of Nuzak a day for about two years. I was also on Yaz. I stopped using both similtaneously. I did read up on symptoms that occur so I was prepared for it but I'm beginning to wonder how long they last for? The most annoying is the "brain-shocks". I've been off both medications now for about 3 weeks, but this week the "brainshocks" have actually become more frequent?! I don't feel myself at all. I have this general feeling of being unwell and tired. When is it going to stop? ## The 'brainshocks' are most likely from stopping the Nuzak, since it contains Fluoxetine, which is an SSRI antidepressant. Learn more Nuzak details here. And though the withdrawal effects tend to gradually taper off, it may take over a month for you to really start ... ...

Help please? ## Hello, Lor! How are you? Have you had a period, yet? The bleeding like that can be normal, when you first start a hormonal contraceptive, such side effects usually last about 3 months, or so and taking it for a bit, then abruptly stopping, could throw your hormones off balance, so your cycle could be off. ## I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.
