Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ...

How Slowly Should You Stop Taking Bisocor
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... ...

Mirtazipan thoughts of slow motion
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 ... ...

Tapering off of Effexor XR -- Remove the beads slowly!
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 ... ...

Equivalent dose of slow release for immediate release
a Dr. prescribes nifedipine 20mg slow release three times a day for a customes is it safe to give him/her 20mg of the immediate release three times a day ## I would suggest doing so, without their doctor's approval. Nifedipine is a calcium channel blocker, which is most commonly used to help treat angina and replacing the time released medication with an immediate release could result in their getting too much of the medication at once, which could cause an overdose. Are there any other questions or comments? ...
