round green pill, coated covered; what is name of drug, what is it for? ## Sun Pharmaceuticals lists this tablet as containing 50mgs of Imipramine, which is a tricyclic antidepressant. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

Fluoxetine help
1 Reply RSS Share
I have been on Fluoxetine for 9 years and took 20mg but then I started taking every other day thinking I was gonna come off it, but started feeling bad again so I’m on my 4th week of taking it every day again. The side effects are really bad again, thought my body will be used to it. Can anyone help ## What side effects are you experiencing? Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you! The NIH lists the typical ones as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, and weight loss, along with others. If you were taking it every other day, then started taking it every day, again, that is essentially a dosage change, so it is normal for you to experience side effects, again, for about 4 to 6 weeks.

Tapering dosage pristiq
Post a Reply Share
I have been on pristiq for about 8 years. I'm at 100 mg and have been for some time. I want to drop to 50. Does anybody have experience with this? Also, I have started losing hair after having a full head of nice hair. I know it's due to the pristiq and/or Wellbutrin (buspirone) I take. Can anybody relate?

My mother is diabetes and suffer from burning foot and ankle pains and symptoms. Her doctor has prescribes Trepiline 10mg, one at night time. Any reason why? As i have reading up on the drug, and no where does it state anything to do with the lower leg pains. Also will this be the reason why her blood suger levels spike (+15) now and again? ## Amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant, some of these do help some people with certain types of nerve pain. And it can have an effect on blood sugar, it can raise or lower it. Do you have any other questions? ## iv been on amitriptyline 10mg for 5 weeks now for lower leg pain which stops me from sleeping , and to be honest they do seem to work,, i sleep through the night now, my only problem is my mouth seems to get dry . ## I am on Trepeline...

Wellbutrin XL, Suboxone and Adderall
8 Replies RSS Share
I started a suboxone program 6 weeks ago. My level dose is 8mg films/tid. I also take adderall ir 15mg/tid (that was prescribed by my psychiatrist, years ago). My sub dr. wants me to get off the adderall & I agree. So he’s started me on bupropion xl/150mg; which, I started today. Took it this morning, along with all my other meds. I was told the bupropion xl works similar to adderall? As far as increasing dopamine receptors, with a slight stimulant & eventually help the brain function without using such harmful & addictive medication. As I said, I started today & I feel like I’ve been given a sedative! I can't keep my eyes open! It’s doing the opposite! My questions: Has anyone taken this combo before? Does it work? I need to know why I'm so tir...

Celexa-Brain Zaps
2 Replies RSS Share
My 12 year old son began taking celexa 10 days ago (10 mg). The results are awesome. His mood is much better, no sadness, more talkative, excitement and joy seems to have returned. This morning after a couple hours at school he told me that he was getting like quick electric "zaps" in his head. They only last a second. He says they are like when someone touches you after "rubbing their feet on the carpet" type zaps. I've googled, and all I can find is that these are withdrawl symptoms from celexa. Has anyone else experienced this at the start up of this medication? Loving the results until this happened. Hoping they don't need to change his meds and this will go away. ## That can happen when someone is new to taking such a medication, it is not just a withdrawal ...

Pristiq Night Sweats
7 Replies RSS Share
Hi all, I have been on Pristiq for 5+ years. Soon after I began, I started dealing with night sweats. Not just mild sweat - I'm talking my PJs and sheets are drenched. It is awful! The night sweats have come and go over the years but are currently very bad. I can't seem to get much information on the internet about this side effect being an issue for many people. Has anyone else experienced night sweats from taking Pristiq? ## Hi Erin, According to the manufacturer, sweating is actually one of the most common side effects people experience from taking Pristiq (Desvenlafaxine). However, nih.gov happens to list "sweating" as both a 'general' and 'serious' side effect here: nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a608022.html Have you already made your doctor ...

Wellbutrin program discontinued at Direct Success Pharmacy
47 Replies RSS Share
I've been getting name brand Wellbutrin XL 300 from Direct Success Pharmacy for several years, but I just found out yesterday that the cash program is no longer available as of October 31, 2016. So, I will be forced to switch to the generics again. I have had side effects from three of the generics on the market. I've tried Actavis, Mylan and Par. The best of the worst was probably Actavis so I guess I will try it again. Any advice? I am not eligible for any of the other patient assistance programs for the name brand drug. ## My copay with insurance would still be $900 a month for the brand drug, and the one of the patient assistance programs said it would give me $75.00 off of that copay. That still won't work for me. ## What types of side effects do you experience from the...

Viibryd and severe joint pain
8 Replies RSS Share
I was on viibryd for a year and a half. Soon after starting the medication (40 mg) I started having aches and pains in my joints but I didn't think anything of it because I had recently had ankle surgery and attributed some of the discomfort from that. As the pain in my joints spread I became more concerned as I have Crohn's disease and there is arthritis that is related to Crohn's disease. So as the pain and inflammation increased I went to see my GI DR. and he felt it was Crohn's Arthritis and started me on Humira. Well this didn't help and the joint pain and inflammation continued to progressively get worse. So I was referred by my primary to a Rheumotologist and was started on heavy doses of Prednisone still with the diagnosis of Crohn's arthritis. This bring...

Cymbalta 60 mg
3 Replies RSS Share
Hi. I have been on 60 mg Cymbalta for anxiety before with great success (which is why I stopped because I felt so good). Anyway a year later I am having another episode with anxiety and was put back on Cymbalta 30 mg. I was only on that for 8 days and then switched to the 60 mg. I am finding some increased anxiety (but within my body not mind) on the increase and it has been 9 days. My Dr. thinks I should go back down to 30 for three weeks but I almost feel like now that I have been on the 60 for 8 days the symptoms will subside any day and I don't want to start over at 30? Has any one had a similar experience. Replies would be greatly appreciated . Please only positive feedback, no horror stories, I don't think I could handle that right now. THank you! ## Though I haven't b...
