all pharmacies claim to be out of stock; cannot wait to fill RX, due to dangerous side effects of stopping abruptly
1 Reply RSS
I am disabled, and have seen the same doctor for approx. 12 years. I see my doctor, in office, every 3 months. I have minimum of four diagnoses, re: my neck, back, hip, shoulder, and sciatic pain. Every single pharmacy in my town claims to be out of stock, for my pain medications. I have done extensive research, and the risks of abruptly stopping my (pain) medication are severe. Why are these pharmacies playing games with patients who are victims of long-term, chronic pain? ## Hello, Missy! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. However, the pharmacies aren't playing games. There is always a shortage of controlled substances for the last few months of the year and has been for as long as I can remember. There are mandatory manufacturing limits and ... ...

How long will my withdrawal symptoms from Cymgen last?
1 Reply RSS
I was taking Cymgen 60mg for about 7 months, and I recently changed to Brintellix. To ween myself off of Cymgen, I took a half dosage for 8 days, then took both my new prescription of Brintellix and my half dose of Cymgen for another 4 days before completely stopping with Cymgen, as recommended by my psychiatrist. I have had horrible withdrawal symptoms, and I'd like some indication of how long they should last for? They include vertigo, dizziness, headaches, nausea etc.. ## Hello, Gabby! How are you? Have your symptoms gotten any better? You may actually be experiencing a double whammy, withdrawal effects from stopping the one, as well as new side effects from starting the Brintellix, the FDA lists everything you mentioned as being among it's typical side effects. You may also ... ...

coreg, any problems stopping?
2 Replies RSS
I've been on coreg 4 days. Side effects are so bad, I'm so tired I can hardly move and just feel s****y. I stopped for 2 days for a stress evaluation and had no problem at that time. Then I took one 3.125 last night. I don't want to take anymore. Is there any problem stopping treatment? My blood pressure wasn't that high to begin with, maybe around 140 over 80. ## Hello, Ralph! How are you? Those side effects can be normal for the first few weeks after starting such a medication. As reported by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache and increased urination. However, they are usually transient and should go away, once your body gets used to the medication. The danger to not taking it is that your blood pressure could keep going higher. It's actua... ...

cymgen withdrawals- How long and what to do??
1 Reply RSS
I have been on Cymbalta, then changed to the generic Cymgen (30mg) for 8 years. I decided after this amount of time to stop and asked my psychiatrist on ways to do this. FISRT of all, my psychiatrist said that because i was on such a low dose that there will be NO side effects of stopping the drug. My response was to inform her that on days i have missed taking my meds i have severe head zaps and couldn't manage just stopping (Cold Turkey) if that was the case. She then put me on a course to taper off: X2 weeks 30mg Cymgen & 20mg LilyFluoxetime (prozac)- After two weeks i stopped the Cymgen and carried on taking the lily for another two weeks as requested by my doctor. I had my last Lily on the 18th of July 2016. It is now the 10th of August 2016. The withdrawals are so severe t... ...

Stopping the 12 mcg fentanyl patch
3 Replies RSS
I can't seem to find a straight answer. I'm stopping the 12 mcg fentanyl patch (with Drs instructions). I have 7.5mg Percocet for withdrawal for a few days but everyone is leaving me believe my withdrawal won't be too bad. I called the pharmacist. She said withdrawal will last 48 hours. That seems too good to be true. So, anyone know?! ## It really depends on the person and how long they've been on it, so you may not experience any withdrawal symptoms, or you may experience them for a few weeks, there's no way to be certain. I believe the pharmacist may have been referring to how long it takes to exit your body, which is approximately 48 hours after last use. The FDA warns that possible withdrawal effects could include nausea, vomiting, chills, rebound pain and diarr... ...

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? ...

How are you? It can take several months for your body to balance your hormones back out on its own, so you have your periods and ovulate in order to get pregnant. Along with skipping, by stopping you, may experience some other withdrawal effects, as listed by the FDA, which may include nausea, headache and PMS-like symptoms.

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... ...

I Have Been Taking Phenergan For About 6 Years After Back Fusion Surgeries Am Trying To Stop Using It But Getting Very Ill When
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

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 ... ...

These medications can cause that, in some people that take them and usually stopping them is the best thing. Learn more Doxepin details here. You weren't on it for very long, so it shouldn't take too long for the effects to wear off.

I have not had a cycle since having my son a year ago. I also have PCOS. I have taken 5mg Norethisterone tablets 3 times a day for 5 days. It has been 3 days now and although I had period pains on the last day of the tablets I have no signs of my period arriving. Do you think my dose was high enough? Many thanks. ## Hello, Lucy! How are you? Is that the dose your doctor advised you to take? Generally, missing your periods isn't a problem, unless you're trying to get pregnant again, so it's not anything to worry about. However, most women do get their periods about 3 days, or so, after stopping it.

Switched from nadolol to diltizem CD 120mg
1 Reply RSS
I've had severe weight gain after being on nadolol for 2 years without success in diet plans. Dr switched me to diltizem CD 120 mg at bedtime. My heart rate was up to 100-110 today (I just started it last night and stopped the nadolol). How long does it take for it to have a full effect on my system? A few days or weeks? How long before I should tell my Dr to up the dose? Thank you. ## It may take about 4 to 5 weeks for it to reach its full level of efficacy in your body, and things are likely more severe, due to stopping the other medication and switching to the new one. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Diltiazem as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. How are you feeling, now? Has there been any change? ...

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... ...

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... ...
