aurobindo venlafaxine - muscle and joint pain

I have taken Venlafaxine XR Capsules - 2 150 mg per day (a high dosage). They were made by the same manufacturer for the first 3 or 4 years. Then, my insurance company switched to the manufacturer Aurobindo. Since then, I have had severe joint and muscle pain, primarily in my arms, but also somewhat in my hands. This pain is so severe that without aspirin, Tylenol, or Aleve, I can barely reach or lift things. Could this pain be due to the change in manufacturerr of my Venlafaxine XR? ## Hello, Debra! How are you? How long have you been taking the one from Aurobindo? Usually, those types of symptoms would be side effects experienced, when first starting such a medication, or when your dosage is raised, as reported by the FDA. When I first started Prozac and each time we upped my dosage, ...

Trazodone Prescription Information

What is the safest and quickest method to stop taking Trazodone? ## My daughter has been taking trazodone for 2.5 years at 150 mg. Can you just stop taking it or do you have to be weaned off? If you just stop will there be risks? ## Trazodone is an SARI antidepressant, so it works on brain chemicals, which means an abrupt cessation of it could result in some withdrawal symptoms and a rebound effect. The rebound effect is usually the biggest problem, because it may result in symptoms that are worse than what someone was taking it to treat. Learn more Trazodone details here. Thus, a slow gradual taper, under the supervision of a physician, is the best and safest way to stop these types of medications. Are there any other questions or comments? Is there anything I can help with? ## I need ...

Effexor XR, Clonazepam, Prazocin and alcohol...

I'm getting concerned about my husband. He has been put on Effexor XR 75 mg, together with Prazosin, and Clonazepam 1 mg, for depression and anxiet and PTSD. When he feels more anxious he will take another Clonazepam, or a half mg of it. I realize his dosages aren't high on these medications but he is also extremely sensitive to meds, so for him this may well be a lot. Lately he has been drinking, after being completely off the alcohol for quite a few years. He will start drinking wine after work, and will drink 3 or more 16 oz glasses. Then he will take another 1.5 of clonazepam some nights, or else 2 Tylenol PM's and go to sleep. I know the drill about drinking and I try not to nag him but I did tell him this pattern is dangerous, against his doctor's instructions and ...

Citalopram and Phentermine

I've been taking Citalopram for a week now, so far so good except for feeling a little tired but hoping it will go away. I want to continue with my weight loss program taking a half of 37ml of phentermine so I can get the energy I need in the morning at the gym, don't want to feel too anxious. Has anyone experienced any interactions or any weird side effects with this combination? Thank you so much. ## Hi Andrea, Based on my research, there is an interaction listed between these two medications; which states the following: "GENERALLY AVOID: Several case reports suggest that serotonin reuptake inhibitors may potentiate the pharmacologic response to sympathomimetic agents. The exact mechanism of interaction is unclear. In one case report, a patient experienced jitteriness, rac...

Cymbalta And Weight Gain

I gained 68 lbs while on Abilify. Now four years later my weight is still 30 lbs over my normal. I still have some depression and very severe anxiety so my doc wants me to try cymbalta 20mg once a day. I would rather be depressed than severely overweight. Anyone know if cymbalta tends to cause weight gain or loss? ## Actually, one of its most common side effects is decreased appetite, so it might actually cause weight loss. Learn more Duloxetine details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi, I have been on cymbalta for about 4 years now, after a suicide attempt. I started off on one capsule a day which wasn't enough so it was increased to 2 a day. I fell in love with life again. I find it amazing and I can't do without them. HOWEVER!
