PAR Bupropion XL 300MG vs Actavis

I've been taking the generic brand PAR of Buproion LX 300MG for over 2 years and haven't run into any problems. Walgreens switched the brand to Actavis generic this month and I feel extremely depressed. I plan on seeking medical attention from my doctor right away-- but I'd like to hear about your experiences to not feel so alone. I started taking Actavis around January 15th and I've noticed my mood has completely shifted and no longer feel like myself. PAR seemed to work well for me. Before I switched brands my depression was manageable but now it's out of control. I constantly feel angry, annoyed, and highly irritated and it scares me. Can generic brands of the same exact medication cause your mental health to decline? ## Hi Emma, Sorry to hear about your reaction ...

Hair Loss from Zoloft

Has anybody experienced hair loss or thinning after being on zoloft? Nobody has baldness or hair loss in my family and I have been losing hair since I started zoloft. My hair is also getting thinner and I am getting the whole receding hair line thing. My dad and his dad do not even have that nor any of my older brothers. I hate these damned side effects!! ## From what I was able to gather hair loss is not listed as a side effect from taking Zoloft. Are you on any other medications? ## Well if you look at the side effects for zoloft (sentraline) it does say that hair loss is a sign of overdose. That means it DOES have the ability to cause hair loss. The question is at what dose? SSRIs are definitely known to cause hair loss. ## I apologize for that you are right, hair loss is listed as a...

Dangerous Switch from Prozac to Effexor but still on it

I was on prozac for two years -- a gradual increase from 0 to 60mg. At first it worked and then it seemed to stop working (for depression). I started to become more depressed than I was before (loss of appetite, sleeping more, no motivation etc.) and my doctor decided to switch me from Prozac to Effexor saying that the transition would be fine. I went from taking 60mg of prozac one day to the next taking 225mg of Effexor. The result was not good. For the next couple days I had extremely blurred vision/ I couldn't go outside because the sun hurt my eyes. It was hard for me to go from lying down to standing up and four days after starting the 225mg I had a seizure in the shower. Despite this, my doctor insisted that this was because I wasn't eating/hydrating properly and sleeping ...

effexor and adderall

I have been taking adderall ir 10mg twice daily and recently was prescribed 75mg Venlafaxine (effexor) one daily. And ive been noticing that my adderall has not been working and have been very out of focused and tired even when taking my medications. I may be building a tolerance to adderall, but that still doesnt explain why it would stop working as well very sudden. Has anyone else experience effexor causing adderall not to be as effective? ## You may just be experiencing side effects of the Venlafaxine, it is an SNRI antidepressant that is used to treat various mental health conditions, so it can cause drowsiness, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight changes, as side effects. Generally, once your body gets used to a new medication, side effects should start to tap...

I might have accidentally overdosed??

Hello, it just came to my attention that I may have taken too much of my medication (Lexipro 15mg) I think I've taken about 30mg total? I forgot that I had taken it earlier today and when I got home I took some more without really thinking until after I took it. I then asked my mom in hopes that she'd say that I didn't take it this morning but she said that I did so now I'm worried, should go to the ER?? Please let me know as soon as possible.. ## An occasional double dose of Lexapro would not be considered an overdose, though it may cause worsened side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and drowsiness. Lexapro is an SSRI, so unless you have a serious adverse reaction, emergency medical treatment is likely not necessary. But, if you aren't sure, call your ...

Xanax vs Venlafaxine

I would rather have Xanax. They work better than the Venlafaxine 75mg pill marked 93 7382. What are your thoughts between the two? ## These are different classes of medications, Xanax is a benzodiazepine that is most commonly used to treat anxiety, and some pain disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and dry mouth. It can usually be taken as needed, and will have some effect within 15 to 20 minutes of taking it. Venlafaxine, however, is an SNRI, it is most commonly used to treat anxiety, and depression. Additionally, rather than taking it as needed, it must be taken on a regular basis, and will take about a month to reach its full level of efficacy in your body. Its side effects may include na...

And D3 2000 iu once a day. Any help would be appreciated. ## Hello, Bettyboob! How are you?

Terrified to start Trintellix!

Hi....I was given a 2 week sample of Trintellix to add to my Paxil 60mg. I'm one to do all the research that's possible & also one to read all the reviews available before starting a new medication when it comes to my mental health. I'm very hesitant after reading so many negative reviews with people complaining of severe nausea and stomach pain. I'm absolutely cannot handle vomiting.... I'd rather take a beating than to vomit. However, can I get some advice about this situation? Is it really worth the awful side effects? Should I also ask my doctor to prescribe me some antibiotics nausea medication to take along with the Trintellix? I certainly could use some advice on this. Thanks! ## There are quite a few typos in my original message I see. I did not mean to p...

White Capsule With Green Stripe Fluoxtine 20 Mg Capsules Leg

I was taking a blue pill...and my new script looks totally different. Scared to take it! Has anyone seen these? ## Look up the pill on the internet by the number on it. See if it is the same drug. Most likely it is made from a different company. That happens sometimes when pharmacies change drug providers. hope this helps. ## What are the markings on the capsule? If you can post back with this additional information, I will gladly research this for you. As Dj stated, however, this is normal, pharmacies do not always carry the same generic medication, depending on what company was offering the cheapest price, at the time they needed to restock their supply. Fluoxetine is an SSRI antidepressant, that is also used to treat anxiety, its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, he...

Greenstone Sertraline Discontinued

How do I find the inactive ingredients in Greenstone Sertraline? How can I find a generic that has the same inactive ingredients? I am very sensitive to chemicals. ## Hi Sue, If you have a specific pill imprint, we can easily identify the inactive ingredients of that tablet.

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...

Citalopram hbr 20 mg tablet effects

Pink oval antidepressant ## I recently received a refill from my mail order pharmacy for Citalopram HBR tablets, 20 mg. The first prescription I had were pink oval tablets, but this next one was round white tablets, the size of a 325mg bayer aspirin. Embossed on the tablet, from what I can make out is, WP1 3177. Is the same type of drug or could it be the wrong prescription?? ## This is the same medication and same dosage, just made by a different company that your last fill. Many pharmacies end up switching which one they carry according to what company had the cheapest available when they needed to restock. Some of the most common side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and sweating. ## I was taken off lexapro and put on citalopram hbr 20mg. After being on the generic anti...
