Cymbalta And Weight Gain
25 Replies RSS Share
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! My weight has increased dramati...

f APO1100 off white med size round tab
1 Reply RSS Share
found a med size round tab scored on one side with APO/1100 any idea what this might be? ## I think the imprint you are seeing might be APO T100, and Apotex lists it as containing 100mgs of Trazodone, which is an antidepressant that is also used to treat insomnia. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Are there any other questions?

Wellbutrin for drug and alcohol addiction
1 Reply RSS Share
I spent most of my 20's addicted to cocaine and alcohol. I have struggled with pretty severe anxiety and depression since I was a teen due to some traumatic life experiences. I took these substances to self-medicate. My doctor suggested some sort of medication to help. I researched and I was initially attracted to Wellbutrin because of the lack of sexual side effects and weight gain issues that are normally associated with ssri's. I began taking Wellbutrin 2.5 months ago and I can honestly say it has changed my life. I started on 150mg of bupropion xl. The first day I took it I felt a bit tense and a little jittery. The second day I felt euphoria. I remember thinking "Wow is this what people normal feel like?". This went away on the third day. In the next couple weeks I ...

Brintellix (Trintellix) withdrawal
16 Replies RSS Share
Started 10 mg Trintellix 3 weeks ago. Vomiting at least 2x a day and constant nausea, fatigue, muscle and back pain. Trying to wean off it - doctor said take it every second day for a week then go see her. What is the normal time frame for withdrawal? I am terrified of this drug. I am diabetic and it is making my sugars wildly fluctuate too. ## Called Lundbeck (canadian office in Montreal) today to get advice on how to wean off/stop taking Trintellix. Shocked to be told "there is NO protocol for weaning/stopping this drug. You have to let your doctor decide how to proceed"! "Everyone has a different reaction". My doctor is away for a week so. My pharmacist and I are trying to figure something out, but I am absolutely stunned at Lundbeck's answer ## Hi Judy, Sorry to ...

Hemp oil for anxiety
Post a Reply Share
Has anyone has success with hemp oil for anxiety? I take lexapro, 2 mg klonipin daily, buspar 60 mg daily, and 900 mg gabapentin daily. I recently went 37 days with no anxiety. But now I've had it 7 days in a row. Idk what causes it I've been fighting it for a year now. I'm wondering if anyone's had any luck with hemp oil. I don't live in a state where marijuana is legal or I'd be tempted to try it. I feel like I'm missing out on my life.

About 5 or 6 weeks ago I started Lexapro. I was on paxil for about 20 years and it felt like it just pooped out and stopped working so i needed a change. First we tried wellburtirn, that didnt work out too well then Lexapro. worked up to 15mg at this point at about week 6 and still having panic and anxiety feelings. I dont know if I need an increase, more time or what. I am also on buspar 30mg twice a day. I just feel like its been so long since ive felt "myself'. I m getting so frustrated and not feeling like playing spin the wheel of fortune game to try another med. I feel like im in and endless battle and im never going to win. Just looking for advice or some words of wisdom form others who possibly have had similar issues with Lexapro and the time it takes to actually start ...

What is a white round pill with 9 | 3 on one side and 7382 on the other? ## Teva Pharmaceuticals lists this tablet as being a very pale orange, and they list it as containing 75mgs of Venlafaxine, which is an SNRI antidepressant.

Duloxetine 60 mg
5 Replies RSS Share
I have been taking Teva Duloxetine 60 mg everyday since 2008 for fibromyalgia. My last refill my pharmacy switched manufactures to Solco. They said same thing. IT WAS NOT! My fibromyalgia is worse and I am dizzy and can hardly walk. I feel like I am going through withdrawal. Pharmacist is changing me back. Solco didn't seem like it was the same strength and may be since the capsules were a lot smaller! ## Was this through Walgreen's? Was told the same when picking up my sister's 30mg prescription yesterday and saw that the pills were different. She didn't start taking the pills yet bcuz she still has 3 of the Teva brand left over. I'm afraid they won't take them back if there is a problem once she begins taking the new brand. The pills were like $400. Manufacture...

Effects of Long Term Amitriptyline Use on the Heart
99 Replies RSS Share
After 20 years of taking amitriptyline for headaches I would like to find people who have had any heart related side effects after long term amitriptyline use. ## Very little is known about the long-term effects of most drugs for depression. The biggest problem reported currently is relapse, when the medication is discontinued. You can read more about antidepressants here: As to any cardiac effects, I am only finding warnings that problems may occur if it is used with some specific other medications. Does anyone else know anything about this? ## I have been on Elavil for 20 years and 100mg at bedtime and I don't recommend anyone taking it long term. I have heart palpatations every day which was determined from Dr. that it was hormonal, but I don't believe it. I tried to decrease...

Imipramine long term usage
1 Reply RSS Share
I have been taking Imipramine for my panic and anxiety disorder for 23 years. I am now up to 150 milligrams per day. It is still working for my anxiety, but over the last year I'm starting to have weird symptoms. Fast heart beat (went to cardio doctor a few years ago and he says it was normal) heart fluttering, excessive sweating while exercising, facial numbness, body twitching, fatigue, dizziness. I also just turned 50 and am e o weir called big menopausal symptoms. I'm a mess!! It is very hard to find any articles on very long term I promise use. Anyone have any experience with any of these symptoms?? ## Like I think you said it could be very well due to menopause and/or a combination of your body adjusting to the tofranil with less hormones. I seriously doubt that after 23 y...

viibryd hair loss
27 Replies RSS Share
After discontinuing Viibryd, has anyone noticed their hair NOT becoming thick again? I've been on 60 mg for about 8 months. My hair is now falling out by the handfuls.. I have an appointment to see my dr. next week but I'm terrified my hair won't grow back! Not to sound self centered or shallow but I adore my hair! Had I of known this was a side effect I'd never agreed to try this medication. I'm terrified, as I've already stated, but I am also angry that this information isn't given by drug reps who push these meds! I pay 277$ a month for this RX & now have to worry about withdrawals, my hair possibly not growing back & adjusting to a new medication. Any replies are welcome & will be appreciated! ## Hello, Amanda! How are you? I'm very sorry ...

I have been on Cymbalta for RSD/CRPS pain and my VA doctor wants me to switch to VENLAFAXINE HCL 75MG 24HR SA CAP. She is saying I do not need to dosage down off the cymbalta and to just start taking the VENLAFAXINE HCL 75MG 24HR SA CAP 2x's per day. I am concerned as I do not see anything in the listing for being used for nerve pain. Just for Depression. Can you please tell me if this is used for RSD/CRPS pain? My pharmacist states it will not be effective for the pain. I am not depressed and I am already taking 38 pills per day. ## Hello, Bobbette! How are you? Both of these medications are classified by the FDA as being SNRIs, which means you can switch cleanly from one to the other and they are both used to treat the same conditions. Typical side effects are listed as possibly i...

Right dose of citalopram
2 Replies RSS Share
8 weeks ago my mom was given 10mg citalopram for anxiety. she did not feel any side effect in the first week but afterwards starting having insomnia, upset stomach, tremor, agitation, etc. The psychiatrist increased teh dose to 20 mg daily but this did not solve anything. Today, in the 8th week she could not sleep at all in the night (she felt fresh when going sleeping even she was working the whole day) and in the morning she is feeling needles in the whole body, she is shaking + many other bad feelings. Can be that the dose is too high for her age (74 years old)?. I am afraid not to be the symptoms of a high level of serotonin. ## Those can all be side effects of Celexa. Insomnia is a classic side effect, though some people get sleepy from SSRI's. Seems to depend on the person. Th...

Switching from pristiq to generic pristiq

I was switched from Pristiq to generic Pristiq which if I understand right, is really Effexor. Is there a possibility this could be causing my severe fatigue? Has this happened to anyone else out there? ## My Insurance switched me to the generic (not my choice) about 3-4 weeks ago. Depression has been creeping in and I'm pretty concerned. Yesterday/last night was bad. Today was OK but my energy is not what it should be and my thinking/mood is not where it should be. Hoping to switch back but I don't know what is happening with the insurance...there is a $1000 penalty to go back to name brand!! ## Insurance is disgusting!! I actually feel ok depression wise and the fatigue turned out to be something else. I hope you stay stable ## Thanks. I'm glad your medication isn't th...

how long does doxepin show up in urine
3 Replies RSS Share
Can doxepin show up on a urine drug test? And if so, how long after taking it? ## How long does dixopin it take to get out of your urine ## This is an antibiotic, so it is not something included on standard tests, according to FDA information. Typical tests screen for controlled substances, such as narcotics, or benzodiazepines, which are things that might be habit forming and are commonly abused. Is there anything else I can help with? ## How long can doxepin be picked up on a gas chromatography test? I have a friend in pain management that sometimes is drug tested.
