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

Losartan HCTZ 50-12.5
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? ...

topzole Enquiry
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? ...

daxid50
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
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
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 0.5 get rid
i am using clonotril 0.5 i want to get rid of it ## Have you consulted your doctor? How long have you been taking it? 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 visited US last month for two weeks and since i came back i experienced sleep disturbances and anxiety.i... ...

I have been taking the above for approx 4 months . I have been cutting down to 1 a day over two weeks and not taken any for the last few days . 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? Have you been having a problem with the medication? ## Stopped taking cos I have been having tummy problems also for about 6 months on and off. Scans Cts you name it and they can't find out why.

nuzak withdrawl
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 ... ...

Last period was on Apr 21st. Started Minastrin 24 Fe on Apr 25. Bled for 22 days straight. Stopped taking pill on May 19th. No real period since. Has anyone had issues like this? 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. ...

Amlodipine 10mg
How can I stop hair loss due to taking Amlodipine 10mg ## I would personally recommend natural alternatives to counteract it, that way there is no risk of having even more side effects associated with another prescription medication. I found that supplementing with liver pills is a great source of iron, biotin, and B-vitamins which help to keep hair strong and healthy. Another reliable option is supplementing with fish oil or hemp seed oil; particularly the omega 3 and 6 fatty acids are great for hair. One last option I would recommend is ceedarwood essential oil for stopping the hair from falling out. I urge you to google information about these products for not just hair health, but many other benefits as well. Please post back if you have any other questions or concerns... ...

Need some help please about Wellbutrin SR
Okay, I am hoping to get some help. I was on Pristiq 100 mg for the last three years. My insurance now is having a higher co-pay plus I have gained 25 lbs. So the PA switched my to Wellbutrin SR 150mg. It is day three and I feel awful. Very foggy and light headed. Well I found out from her nurse today, that I should not be having any caffeine when I take it. How long will this feeling last?? Anyone have words of wisdom. I am not hungry and that is the good thing. I want to try to stick it out. ## Actually, there could be a combination of factors causing your problems. How long ago did you stop the Pristiq? You could be suffering some withdrawal/rebound effects from stopping it, plus side effects from starting the new medication. These can last for about 4 to 6 weeks, before your body ad... ...

I have been taking 80mg of baclofen a day for the past month now. I started it October 2nd 2013-November 4th 2013. I have now been going through withdrawals from the medication for 5 days now and was curious if it will be over with very soon? I ask this because i haven't been on it long but am not sure how long this withdrawal feeling will last. I am feeling the mental withdrawal and the muscle issues at this point now. Can someone please help me out with when I will or should be getting back to normal mentally and physically? ## Hello, Steph! How are you feeling? It's difficult to say, since everyone is different.

Vicodin Withdrawal
Hello, I have taken Vicodin, Tramadol, OR Lortabs recreationally OFF AND ON for the past 6 years. By off and on I mean, maybe two months on and four months off, throughout that time period. Over the last year and a half it has been strictly Vicodin, maybe one to one and a half of the m360's a day. Usually one in the morning and one in the evening. And this too has been off and on..stopping for a couple months, starting for a couple months. I haven't taken anything in a little over 2 weeks now and I still seem to have withdrawal effects that I normally never had. Every morning I wake up feeling "hungover", I get headaches almost everyday, my GI tract is always jumpy, I'm shaky and sweaty. It's just really weird to me that I am still going through this stuff..but t... ...
