The FDA warns that you may also experience nausea, dizziness, mood changes, and weight changes. What dosage are you currently taking? Has there been any change, so far?

Zytomil antidepressant affecting libido
3 Replies RSS
Hi, i have been on Zytomil for 3 weeks now and find that i am unable to climax. Will this problem go away in time? ## Yes, that can be a normal side effect of most antidepressants, according to the NIH. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings, and weight changes. However no, it doesn't usually improve and you may need to see your doctor and discuss trying a different medication. Is this the only medication that you take? ## Hi Verwon, i do not seem to have any other side effects. Yes this is the only medication i am taking. The Zytomil worked within one week and i feel a new person. Think i will stick with it for the 6 months my doctor suggested. i suppose one cannot have it both ways in life. Best regards. ## Best bet is to ask your doctor for Vi...

Weaning off Celexa
2 Replies RSS
This is hell. I'm having rage, and I mean RAGE attacks! I've been off Celexa for about one week. I weaned myself off of Celexa, while replacing it with St. John's Wort. I'm taking 2800 mg SJW to offset no Celexa, and it definitely is helping. But the rage attacks are scary. Really scary. Like road rage type scary. Help. ## While St. John's Wort is said to help with depression, and anxiety, it does not actually replace a prescription medication, since it's efficacy is not clinically proven, nor are its effects comparable to a prescription medication, in spite of the claims that are made about it. That is also a very high dosage to be taken of it, generally it is not recommended that someone take more than 1,200mgs of it per day. Thus, the greatest chance you are f...

brintellix and zoloft
5 Replies RSS
Hi. I'm about to switch over to Brintellix from Zoloft. The Zoloft has been good for my depression, but my libido is pretty much non-existent. Do I need to wean completely off the Zoloft before I start the Brintellix? I'm getting mixed messages about this. Anyone have personal experience in taking both while weaning from Zoloft? ## Hello, Dar! How are you? Yes, one should be stopped, before starting the other, unless your doctor has instructed you to do otherwise. Brintellix is a little different than Zoloft, the FDA classifies it as an atypical antidepressant, it's a serotonin modulator and stimulator. Typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, constipation, dry mouth and unusual dreams. You should also be made aware that it can cause problems ...

Brintellix/Trintellix Long term side effects
21 Replies RSS
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...

I have a small round pill with no other markings but A - 102 on one side only. What is this pill and what is it used for? ## Hi Tom, You didn't mention what color your pill was, but a small round white pill with A 102 on one side and blank on the other, is reportedly identified as Bupropion ER (300mg); an antidepressant medication. For verification, the manufacturer is listed as Par Pharmaceuticals and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 10370-102. You can also click on the NDC link to view an image of the pill. I hope this helps!

Venlafaxine generic
1 Reply RSS
My health insurance recently changed my Effexor ER to Tier 3--making it more than 2 times the monthly cost. Has anyone changed to the generic venlafaxine that is not extended release successfully? I prefer to not use non-US pharmacies. I can not find venlafaxine extended release as a generic option in the US--only the regular. Thanks for your help! ## RE: Differences in generic manufactures of Venlafaxine - Would one manufacturer's brand differ from another manufacturer's? The pharmacy said it's all the same. They say the availability of the product is why they switch.

Wellbutrin Stopped Working- Please help!
11 Replies RSS
Hi, I'm new to this forum. I am desperate for support and hoping I can get some advice from people who may have had a similar experience. I feel like I'm drowning- like the life has been sucked out of me. I've felt depressed ever since I was 12 years old. I wasn't suicidal, but I felt a general lack of motivation for life. I couldn't find happiness in anything, and just getting out of bed was a struggle most days. At age 21 I decided to do something about it and got a script for the generic version of Wellbutrin XL (300mg) for roughly 2 years. In the beginning it was a miracle drug- I was able to get out of bed in the morning, I was super motivated, lost some weight, and felt like a normal human being- until at some point it stopped working, so I tapered off and even...

Citalopram Manufacturer Change
98 Replies RSS
Mail order changed my citalopram manufacturer from Amneal to Aurobindo. Have noticed side effect after the change. Should this be happening? Anyone els have this issue with manufacturer change? ## JC - I haven't been taking this med, but i wanted to share with you that it IS in fact possible to experience different effects between generic manufacturers. Even though ratios of active ingredients are supposed to be the same, the inert (inactive) ingredients are allowed to differ by a certain margin. Not to mention different manufacturing standards / facilities / etc. Sometimes if you mention this to your doctor or pharmacist, they can try to obtain the product from the other manufacturer, but this does not always work - it's all about supply chain and sometimes a specific manufactu...

Sleepy side effect of Brintellix
5 Replies RSS
I've been taking Brintellix (10 mg) for 18 days now. I was taking Effexor and then the generic version Venlafaxine since 2008 and was interested in a new medication. I thought that the Venlafaxine made me gain weight, not sure. So, since taking this Brintellix, I've been VERY groggy, and sleepy. Been having a hard time getting out of bed in the morning, and sleep later than usual. Hard to have energy to do things throughout the day. Does this go away with time? Overall, the medication works fine, however this sleepiness is too much. ## Hello, Sheva! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. The excessive drowsiness may be due to stopping the other, coupled with side effects from starting the Brintellix. As listed by the FDA, other possible side effects...
