is this slow-k legit?
2 Replies RSS
I picked up a prescription for slow-k and there is no imprint on the pills, generally it has slow-k printed on it. What are the chances this is a counterfeit? If it is likely to be, what should I do? ## I haven't received any reply to this, someone please? ## If you feel concerned, I would take that pill to your nearest pharmacy and ask you pharmacist. Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ...

Weight loss soooo slow...

It took me almost a month and a half to lose 10#''s. Now it seems like I do cereal for breakfast, salad for lunch and whatever we have for dinner. If we eat out I gain 2#'s overnight. Then have to start over again. Sometimes I forget to take them. I am getting discouraged. I am eating less than I used to but not losing much weight. Can't say I am not hungry. Please help me.... ## Hello, Eileen! How are you doing? It would likely help to take some control of what you're eating for dinner and to stop eating out. Do you also get plenty of exercise? That's vital for weight loss, you can't expect the medication to do all the work. You should also try to find a way to remind yourself to take them. A phone app may help, if you have a smart phone. Does anyone else ha... ...

How Slowly Should You Stop Taking Bisocor
1 Reply RSS
I have been on Bisocor 10mg for a number of years and have discovered by chance the bad affect on my breathing it caused. I need to stop taking it but understand it must be done slowly. How slow should that be? ## Hi Leetjie, Sorry to hear about the challenges you've been facing with this medication. From what I understand, usually for drugs like this, the safest way to stop taking them is to tapper off them "under a doctor's supervision"; if possible. Some medications can be taken in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of several weeks until the body is no longer dependent upon them. However, due to the severe nature of withdrawals, in my honest opinion, it would be wise to discuss a taperi... ...

Is this drug helping or is it slowly killing

Please let me know if anyone is taking this drug and what effects if any its having on you or your loved one. ## Tommy, I don't know your situation and why it was prescribed. Here is what I do know. In September, 2005, my dad (88 years old) was diagnosed with Chronic Mylegenous Leukemia. The wonder drug that we were trying to get at the time was Gleevec which we were told had made significant medical breaththroughs in this type of cancer. However, my dad had no RX plan and it cost $1,432 (discounted) and we were waiting for a response from the distributor if we could get help in getting it. While we were waiting, my dad was prescribed Hydroxyuerea and he was taking 1000 mg twice per day for about 2-1/2 weeks when he, himself, refused all medication after being diagnosed with stomach... ...

I am disabled veteran with chronic pain, and after reading some of these, and knowing how terrible life was before I was prescribed both types, I just cannot believe, or understand "why" it is not treated with respect, and the beneficial results, it produces. I have been taking the same dosage except for a increase in the # of SR tablets per day, and some days, I still have pain, but not to the extent, I experienced for over 20 years trying to work and be a productive citizen. People, take as prescribed, or you do not need it. My life, is not pain free, but I am not in agony, anymore. I, have a profound respect for the medication, that changed my life. ## Hi PainMan, I think that these types of pain meds tend to carry a tarnished reputation simply because of the high amount of a... ...

Seroquel Questions and Slow taper?
4 Replies RSS
Hello, I am a 48 year old woman and I have been on 100mg of seroquel at night for 8 years for depression and sleep. I need to slowly taper off this. It seems it is making me even more tired and I sleep and sleep for very long hours. I have a lot of issues with it. I have a few questions. I take the 100mg tablet at night. I also have some of the 25 mg and was going to use those to taper. But even though I know 4 of the 25 mg tablets are 100mg, It seems to work different when taken that way? Anyone else notice this? Should I just try to cut up the 100mg and taper that? I wanted to take 75mg and take the other 25 mg tablet and cut it up. I want to do a very slow taper. I would be happy to taper 25 mg over 2.5 to 4 months. I have tapered off other things in the past that I took for fibromya... ...

Mirtazipan thoughts of slow motion
2 Replies RSS
I'm not sure if i feel better or worse. Upon taking this drug it has somewhat wiped my depressed mood and anxious feelings but this has been replaced with constantly feeling exhausted. My head feels very spaced out with feelings of being detached from reality at times. I also feel constantly tired with little motivation in doing anything....feeling rather cranky with others. I do hope this passes soon as it's hard work in managing this state of affairs. ## You might want to see if your pharmacy carries another manufacturer's generic mirtazipine. I've suffered through the same symptoms of drowsiness, and dullness through the day. Even with doing a 30 minute workout in the morning after getting out, cardio on an elliptical cross-trainer, the fog/headache, nausea are still ... ...

Anxiety, Heart Palpations, My mind won't slow down!
3 Replies RSS
This may be a little long so please bear with me,.. About 6 months ago I started suffering from light headaches. They began later in the afternoon and continued for several months. I'd take Aleve or Motrin and they would subside and all would be okay. Fast forward to the last two months. They have been He** on earth for me. About 2 months ago, I had a series of panic attack in one day. I had just started a new job that I hate and is very stressful for me. I'm trying to change jobs and hope that helps. Anyway, the attacks have become more and more frequent and I have come to a place where I don't even want to leave the house. I have been to my Doctor 3 times and the ER once. I was diagnosed with GAD and Hypertension. My anxiety has gotten a lot worse. Even driving now sends m... ...

Tapering off of Effexor XR -- Remove the beads slowly!
6 Replies RSS
I am an MD who was RX Effexor XR for depression over 10 years ago. I took 75mg for many years and felt fine for a long time, but then wanted to get off of it. I would be in a panic if I forgot to take my pill and would experience strange dizzy/buzzing sensation behind my eyes. I was able to taper down to the 37.5mg pretty easily by alternating daily between 75mg/37.5mg. Then I got stuck and tried taking the lower dose every other day or every 36 hours but the side effects were too great. Then luckily, my new partner suggested opening up the capsules and tapering off with beads. I have been doing that now for about a year and a half. The original generic brand capsule had about 39 beads in and I was able to get down to 6 beads. When I tried to stop I couldn't function. I was shocked ... ...
