generic trazodone

My extremely energetic dog takes Trazodone for calming. Recently the pharmacy refilled with a different manufacter pill which was slightly smaller and made by Zydus. The original RX was manufactured by TEVA. The effects were not the same....the dog was still bouncing off the walls after giving same dosage. I question the pharmacist who told me "it's just what they send us" and "it's the same drug". I disagree. Any info or comments?

blue and white capsule 872 par

i lost alot of weight it was .after i stoped taking them i gained it back . but i landed a trucking job . iloved that i had only the dry mouth as my only side effect . ## Hello, Raymond! How are you? Par Pharmaceutical lists this capsule as containing 40mgs of Fluoxetine, which is a generic for Prozac. The FDA classifies this medication as an antidepressant, weight loss can be a normal side effect of it, it is usually most prominent in people that are underweight to begin with, it's other side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, anxiety, and dry mouth. Is there anything I can help with? ## DOES YOUR COMPANY GET ANY INGREDIANCE FROM CHINA, INDIA WHICH HAVE BEEN RECALLED BECAUSE OF IT BEING CARCINOGEN ## Have y’all changed the fillers or ingredients? My flu...

Amitriptyline VS Nortriptyline

Hi everyone, I'm interested in amitriptyline and/or nortriptyline. I have been taking amitriptyline 100mg at night. As usual my dose was increased over time. The only side effect I had difficulty with is that grogginess in the morning which I don't like. I'm most interested in no grogginess. I was told that it shall pass as my body adjusts. I found a different drug called nortriptyline accidentally while looking for insurance. They consider amitriptyline to be a tier 4 as to nortriptyline a tier 2, that's a huge difference in price for me, so I looked it up and they seem to be basically the same medicine but I noticed that in the comments area the grogginess was not so much a problem as to the other medicine...so if anyone can help me out with feedback that would be grea...

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?

My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

Viibryd Weight Gain

I originally got on the web today to research how to loose weight gained from medication. I have been on Viibryd for 6 months for Major Depressive disorder. I currently take 40 mg. It should be noted taking Viibryd has changed me from a size 0 to size 6. 20lbs. My appetite at times especially in the evening is RAVENOUS. I am embarrassed by how much I can eat and not be full. I have been nonchalant about a few pounds here and there but it devestated me yesterday when i caught a glimpse of CELLULITE on my backside. Nothing else has changed in my medicines or routine. I have always been slim. I have compassion for any who have been trying to figure out if Viibryd is causing their body to change physically. I also will comment on other side effects in another post. My memory is compromised ...

Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq) and Simvastatin

For at least a year or more I've been taking pristiq (generic) and simvastatin at the same time. I felt that the pristiq was no longer working because I was so very tired all of the time. It dawned on me that maybe there was an interaction between taking simvastatin and pristiq at the same time. I took them separately at least 3 hours apart and today have more energy and as the day wore on kept felling better. I know there isn't supposed to be an interaction if you take them together, but I can't help but think there is. Has anyone else taken them at the same time and then stopped taking them together and had better results with not feeling so tired all of the time and listless? ## Hi Karen, I just wanted to add another perspective or insight into your understanding that the...

Brintellix/Trintellix Long term side effects

I have struggled with depression for most of my life, and am always in search of the perfect antidepressant. I work with a psych doctor who is always willing to try new things. 10 months ago I started 5 mg of Brintellix daily, within a week my mood was significantly elevated, I was sleeping better, waking up much earlier and was more motivated to do things in the morning. I went up to 10mg daily However the nausea was dreadful! I pushed through for a couple of weeks, changed to taking the brintellix at night and after a while it subsided. My mood got better and better, I had recently turned 50, and had gained a little weight, so with my new found morning energy I started working out 2times a week with a trainer, and then walking most other mornings! The walking then changed gradually to...

Switching from pristiq to generic pristiq

I was switched from Pristiq to generic Pristiq which if I understand right, is really Effexor. Is there a possibility this could be causing my severe fatigue? Has this happened to anyone else out there? ## My Insurance switched me to the generic (not my choice) about 3-4 weeks ago. Depression has been creeping in and I'm pretty concerned. Yesterday/last night was bad. Today was OK but my energy is not what it should be and my thinking/mood is not where it should be. Hoping to switch back but I don't know what is happening with the insurance...there is a $1000 penalty to go back to name brand!! ## Insurance is disgusting!! I actually feel ok depression wise and the fatigue turned out to be something else. I hope you stay stable ## Thanks. I'm glad your medication isn't th...
