Symbyax Side Effects

My husband has just been prescribed symbyax. He has very bad mood swings. His psychiatrist prescribed this medication to help with them. However, I am very worried after reading posts on weight gain and sleepiness. He drives a truck. ## Symbyax contains Fluoxetine and Olanzapine, it combines an antidepressant and an antipsychotic, it is mainly used to treat depression that has been resistant to other medications, or depression associated with bipolar disorder. Its typical side effects can include weight gain, drowsiness, headache, and mood changes. [1] As to his driving, it might depend on your state laws, many have restrictions on what medications a driver can take while working. Is he on any other medications?

Bendectin Side Effects

I took Bendectin in 1978 for 7 months of morning sickness. My daughter has Addisons disease, an auto-immune condition, and am wondering if this drug has caused her side effects. How can I get more info and any recourse I may have. Her life expectancy will most likely be shortened. She is in constant pain and fatigued. ## Hi Maureen, I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter! Are you referring to Benedictine? I did find some information stating that there is a possibility that Benedictine could have been the cause of multiple birth defects, however studies don't really make it clear. I'll link you to a thread where others discuss this same topic- you may be able to find more answers to your questions their; since I don't personally have experience with this medication. Dis...

t 100 pill scored round

its purple grayish, has a T with line under it, and 100 below the line. Nothing on the back. no other markings. I found it in the driveway and was told it maybe a pill for chemo. If so I would like to know if one of my family members has cancer. Thank you. ## The only pill in the databases that matches this is actually T 109, though it is commonly misread, due to the size of the marking. It contains 200mgs of Carbamazepine, a mood stabilizer used to treat Epilepsy and BiPolar Disorder. There is a cancer treatment drug that has a T100 marking, but it is not gray and does not have the line/score mark under the T. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## This may be Temaril, a drug used for canines to relieve itching or as a cough suppressant. ## A circular white tablet (exactly the ...

lithium 300

Lithium 300 milligrams is it safe to try it to see if it stabilizes my mood? I tend to be hyperactive and have a hard time relaxing. ## Hello, Chimi! How are you? Has your doctor prescribed it? This is a very potent medication, so it shouldn't be something you just take experimentally. Are you on any other medications? Because that's also a very important factor which must be considered. Do you have any diagnosed medical conditions? ## My best friend was taking it for over 6 years, he was making weird movements and yelling out weird noises was scary, plus it kills your liver, he's off of it now on pail and Ambien, he tried serequil at night to sleep but said it was making him feel paranoid and terrified at night same thing happened to me when I took it, it does make you slee...

is epitec 50 the same as epilim 500

I use epilin cr 500. Is it the same as epitec 50? My doctor changed it so I want to know if I can use it. ## I am taking 300 mg epitec for bipolar disorder. Can I take epilim instead ## Hello Frikkie, I wasn't able to pull up much information on the epitec 50 but I was able to see that it's main active ingredient is Lamotrigine where as the Epilim 500 contains the active ingredient sodium valproate. This means that the two medications are not the same, however, they are both used to treat the same conditions. These medications are both used to treat epilepsy and mental conditions with episodes of overactivity, elation or irritability. These medications may be prescribed to individuals with bipolar disorders. I hope this information helps. Let me know if there is anything else I ...

gambutrol

anti psychotic ## this is a made up drug from the film The Exorcism Of Emily Rose. It does not exist ## The original post was made over 2 years ago, so I doubt this person will read it now. However, this information is great to have on here for anyone in the future who might hear this drug name mentioned and look for more information. Maura is correct, this drug DOES NOT EXIST! It was totally invented for the movie. It does sound like it may be a real drug, because the writers of the script did follow FDA guidelines for naming drugs when they created it, but once again, IT IS NOT REAL!!! ## Gambutrol is a derivative of the word 'game' or 'gaming' - a direct reference to the fictionalized (though more or less accurate) depiction in the film 'The Game'. The filmmak...
