trazodone for insomnia

I have read the leaflet that came w/ my meds. Its listed as an antidepressant but was prescribed to me for insomnia. Two questions now. 1. Do I have to take it every night? 2. How worried should I be about the side effects? Frankly, I've put off taking it because I've never been diagnosed w/ depression, just insomnia & migraine. Any concise info you can provide would be great! Just speak to me like a person, not a doctor. Thanks! ## Trazadone. First off Trazadone is a cocaine withdrawal pill. And I guess it is prescribed for insomnia as well. My doctor gave it to me to help me sleep. It most definitely put me to sleep. But the bad, bad, bad thing about this medication is it stops your nose up to point where its impossible to breath. The first time I took it I knew exactly ho...

Anxiety Remeron Seroquel Klonopin

I have been prescribed Remeron 15mg and Klonopin 0.5 for anxiety and lack of sleep. After 40 days I still have too much anxiety and racing thoughts to fall asleep, and I've gained no weight. So my Dr put me on Seroquel XR 150 mg one week ago (Aug 14) and will be able to fill a new Rx for Ativan to try on Aug 30 once the Klonopin Rx is "completed". The Klonopin no longer helps with anxiety as I get those dreaded warm rushes of pain the fill my face, neck, chest, and arms even after I take one. I'm reaching out for help because as I transition from Remeron to Seroquel it's still hard to fall asleep and the grogginess during the day is torture. What meds or combo has anyone taken to help fall asleep, slow the racing thoughts, decrease anxiety and agitatation, and just h...

Quitting Effexor using the Prozac "bridge"

I have been on Effexor XR since like a month after it was fda approved which is about 24yrs now. I was on 300mg a day for many years. I then was lowered to 150mg a day for many more. Recently I started lowering my dose by 37.5mg every 2 weeks and am currently taking only 37.5mg. No withdrawal symptoms, but worsening depression. I spoke with my doctor and she added Prozac 20mg. I am supposed to come off the Effexor completely in 7 days but am terrified of the withdrawals... I’ve felt them many times in the past and they are hell. Anyone have any experience with this?

Why was greenstone sertraline discontinued?

After researching online and my own experience, camber sertraline works as well as greenstone. I could only take greenstone, now I’m on brand name Zoloft. Walgreens has a card from Pfizer that saves me hundreds of dollars a month. After a year I’ll need to get my insurance and doctor to approve a tier reduction for the price of the brand name. ## Hello J, I have some bittersweet news to deliver. It turns out that Greenstone was the generic brand owned by Pfizer, which is the company that manufactuers the brand name Zoloft. On the bright side the pills are nearly identical only differing in color dye inactive ingredients. From what I read it was no longer in the companies best interest to continue manufacturing the generic and decided to only manufacture the brand name. If yo...

qualitest manufacturer

I need to find, for my pharmacy, Trazadone by Qualitest. I take three daily. I have been on other manufacturers since February of last year and having problems. The one they have me on now has me crying easily and I cannot get going to do anything. Once I get going, I act like I am in a hurry all the time. My pharmacy tried the ones I am on now 2 years ago and I had problems then. Can someone help? ## I know from personal interaction the other manufacturers are not the same chemical compositions. The results are obviously different. The absolute worst one is PLIVA. While on that, I even let my electricity get cut off. I worry for other patients, too. I was sent to another pharmacy and given Apotex last night. I found Qualitest myself a couple of years ago and the pharmacy I use ordered ...

Oval Pink Pill 3 20

I have a pink oval pill, very very small (like the small zoloft pills). It has 3 | 20 on one side, but nothing (or at least nothing I can read) on the other side. It's oval but slightly larger at the middle than the ends. It looks like it's instant release, because it has no coating on it... what is it? ## The only close match I can find has the markings RDY on one side, and the 3 20, separated by a score line, on the other. It is manufactured by Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, and they list as containing 1mg of Glimepiride, which is most commonly used to treat diabetes. NDC: 55111-0320 Does this image look like it? Sometimes, with handling, or if it a tablet has gotten wet, part of the imprint may be rubbed of, or lost. The typical side effects of Glimepiride may include nausea,...

Day 6 quitting Cymbalta cold turkey!!

Hello all! I first posted on here about 5 days ago. I said I'd be back to give you guys an update to how I was feeling stopping Cymbalta 30mg cold turkey. Well today is day 6 and I feel great!! Little to no symptoms at all. I have so much energy now!! WOW!! ## Yikes. It really isn't a good idea to stop taking an antidepressant cold turkey, unless your doctor or pharmacist tells you too. You risk have nasty withdrawal symptoms. Tapering off any drug usually takes only a few days, so why put yourself through more hell? Cymbalta helps my diagnosed pain. I've had to come of it a couple times and the pain returned very quickly. It doesn't do anything for my depression, though. ## Cymbalta is one of the hardest drugs I ever had to come off of. The side effects are horrific. I ...

trepiline & stresam

I am on stresam 50mg and have now gotten a trepiline 10mg prescription today to take at night before bed. Is it safe to use both together? I don't want something strange happening to me at any point. ## Has your doctor instructed you to take both of them? Stresam is listed as containing Etifoxine, and Trepiline contains Amitriptyline, they are sometimes used together, in cases where someone has severe anxiety that is resistant to treatment, but in such cases, their doctors should be monitoring them regularly, in case of any problems. The U.S. FDA warns that combining such medications may cause more severe side effects, which may include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, sedation, and somnolence.

Trouble swallowing Cipla Sertraline

My blue 50 mg cipla sertraline pills get stuck in my throat. I can't dislodge them with water. They dissolve slowly, and feel like they are burning my throat. What is the ph of these pills? ## In most cases, that means that you aren't swallowing them with enough liquid. The proper way to take tablets is to place them as far back on your tongue as possible, to the point where you almost gag, then swallow them with a mouthful of water, and make sure to finish the full 8oz glass of water afterwards. If you are doing this, however, and are still having a problem, you should consult your doctor as it might be indicative of some other problem, such as acid reflux damage, or esophageal spasms. The reason it doesn't dislodge with water, or other liquid, is because the pill isn't...

Urinary side effects

Does anyone have urinary problems whilst taking Cymbalta ? I am now taking 60mg in the morning and 30mg in the evening. It is weird - if I just ‘think’ that I should need to wee, I can suffer from an urgency to do so and then I never pass a lot. I sometimes have to ‘concentrate’ to allow the flow of wee to start and then it is slow and I never pass much. In fact I never seem to pass much wee no matter how much liquid I drink. Just overall odd urinary symptoms. ## Yes, Cymbalta has been known to cause some urinary issues, such as frequency, as side effects, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. Are you on any other medications? Do you have high blood pressure? ## Hi ! Thanks for your reply ?? I have slightly raised blood pressure a...
