cynbolta

antidepressent ## I'm looking for info on Cynbolta. It is being considered for my mother -- 80 years old and seriously depressed. She also suffers from Alzheimers and Parkinsons. Other antidepressants (eg:Paxil) have proved inneffective and havae had serious gastro-intestinal side effects. Does anyone have an experiences regarding this drug that can be shared? ## Were you referring to the medication Cymbalta? it contains the active ingredient Duloxetine, and is used to treat depression, as well as anxiety. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight changes. It didn't work for me, or for my husband, but there is no way to say how it might work for someone else. Has she started it, yet?

Alembic Fluoxetine Make Me Sick

I've been taking a generic green & white capsule of 20 mg Prozac (fluoxetine) for a few years. My pharmacy gave me blue capsules mfg by alembic this time & I am feeling so sick for 4 days now. I thought I had a stomach bug, but I've never had a bug linger this long. I had diarrhea & vomiting on day 2 & 3, jittery sleep, then deep bouts of sleep, bad headache, night sweats & nightmares. ## Ditto! I almost puked this am, and have been sick all day. Had major side effects after my pharmacy switched me to blue caps. Was taking Sandoz white and green for years with no problem. I called my pharmacy and requested alternative as I can’t barf every day ## I recently got a refill and my pharmacy switched to Alembic generic (dark blue capsules). I took it only abo...

blue Fluoxetine causes heartburn

Recently my pharmacy began giving me a new version of fluoxetine, which I have taken for MANY years with no problems.... however the blue fluoxetine gives me horrible heart burn. I use to take them at night before bed, but couldn't sleep, so decided to start taking them in the morning and still get the heartburn. I don't take them with any other meds. I tried an empty stomach, and after eating, but the results are still the same. I also get a bad headache (I think from the heartburn.) Has anyone figured out how to avoid this problem? ## Hi Jen, I truly believe that the root cause of this specific heartburn side effect lies within the "inactive" ingredients found in the blue Fluoxetine pill. Reason I say that is because, when you switch brand names or manufacturers, the d...

Viibryd

Going to start it tomorrow. Anyone else taking it and how do you like it? Thanks, ls ## Started taking it on 07-13. Coming off of Effexor and Lexapro. ## Thanks, and keep me updated on how you feel. I take Welbutrin and am adding this med. Used to take Lexapro with the Welbutrin, but it just make me feel like nothing, so I got off it. Hopefull, and from what I have read, this is a lot better!! ## Will do! Am very hopeful as well. Lot of anxiety during the transition, but I think that's the Effexor getting out of my system. ## I have never taken it, but can provide a little information about it. It contains the active ingredient Vilazodone and it is approved for the treatment of major depressive disorder. Unlike similar medications, it has been shown to help in as little as one week,...

wellbutrin xl 150mg

little tiny white pills to loose wieght &quit smoking ## how does wellbutrin 150mg help you to quit smoking? HOW DO YOU KNOW ITS WORKING ## It is not usually a tiny pill, they are usually a bit bigger and thicker than an Aspirin. Are there any markings on the tablets? Can you please post back and clarify? Sissy, overall it is an antidepressant that can also help reduce the cravings to smoke. Years ago, it was frequently sold under the brand name Zyban, specifically to help with smoking cessation. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, headache, dry mouth, nervousness, and weight loss.

A109 20 mg dark blue oval capsule ## I also got the blue generic fluoxetine made by northstar and they made me crazy!!!

aurobindo pharma complaints

I have been on sertraline by Greenstone for a few years with great results. My pharmacy switched me to aurobindo sertraline and I have been on a downward spiral. I am having severe anxiety, insomnia, jittery, extremely tired, verbally agressive and just not feeling good. Have you received any complaints regarding sertraline by Aurobindo. Why doesn't the pharmacy inform us when they change manufactors? And do you have any information ,questions or complaints regarding sertraline by Cipla USA. Please reply. PLEASE AND THANK YOU....... ## They should inform you, while they are not required to do so, most pharmacy's will let you know that the new pills are different from your old ones, but they contain the same ingredient. The FDA does warn that Sertraline may cause side effects, su...

Blue A106 Fluoxetine?

This is the first time Costco mail order pharmacy has sent me these pills, the previous ones I have been taking for five years were also a generic but I do not remember their color but think they were two colors, one color was white and I believe the other was green. Ever since I started taking the blue pills, my FBSS pains in my legs have greatly increased. I took the fluoxetine primarily for relief from these pains, along with 150 mg Lyrica, 2mg clonoxepam, 50mg prestiq, 25mg amitriptyline, and 50mg lamotrigine daily. Is it possible that these new blue pills, which I understand are made in India by Alembic, are sufficiently different than the previous generic Fluoxetine to cause this increase in pain. Please help, the pain has been terrible since making this change. Thank you. ## The ...

lexamil and alcohol - what are the side effects

what problems have people had with lexamil users that have alcohol as well.....my husband is on lexamil 1 tab a day but if he does not take the tab hes moody and morbid and if he drinks alcohol it makes him unco operative ....what can i do ## Lexamil contains the active ingredient Escitalopram, it is an SSRI antidepressant. It can be dangerous to use with alcohol, because it can cause great worsening of the side effects. These may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and irritability. Read more: I cannot tell you what to do about it, however, have you tried telling his doctor about the problem? ## What are the side effects of taking Lexamil and smoking? ## I don't think it is likely to be dangerous to drink alcohol while on escitalopram. However, effects of the drug are very speci...

apotex vs pliva trazodone

My pharmacy just switched manufacturers of my prescription trazodone 50mg. It used to be made by apotex now it is pliva and I am finding that the new pills are having little to no effect and I am starting to suffer discontinuation syndrome. I talked to my pharmacist and doctor and neither one could tell me what was causing this. I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who could shed some light on the subject. ## Yes, I can. Under Federal Law, by way of the Hatch Watchman Act of 1984, generics are allowed to differ from their name brand counterparts by as much as plus or minus 20% in the active ingredient. Many people are not aware of this, including doctors, but the FDA considers this to be a very minor difference that does not affect the therapeutic dosing of medications. So,...

zoloft

want to know everything there is to know about zoloft good and bad ## I've been on it, along with a number of other people I know. Hated being on it. Takes too much control of you. Have never met anyone who thought it was good for them. ## I don't have a whole lot to complain about being on it. I never really noticed a difference, but I did find out not to take it within 4 hours of Depakote. It has some very odd side effects. ## I have been taking zoloft for approx. 9 years 100mg daily and it has been very good for me. ## I have been on this for about 3-4 weeks now. I was on Prozac for 15 tears but was having problems again with depression more and he switched me to zoloft 50-75 mg. As needed he said. So far no side affects to say but doing better. Took a leave of absense from w...

viibryd hair loss

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 ...

Why did I read that you should not take this medicine till 2020? I was just given a lot of samples of 5mg that my doctor wants me to start for my depression. I am scared to death to start because of the horrible reviews & side effects that sound horrible. I have never heard of this drug. Can you please help me with this. Also if I do decide to start when is the very best time to take it? ## Has anyone else gone down from 10 to 5 mg of trintellix? I am afraid I will have some anxiety doing this. Can anyone give me advice? ## I've been on Brintellix/ Trintellix for going on 2 years. Saved my life. I am on a low dose, with buspar piggy back, but no longer a handful of drugs. If you've failed the rest, give it a shot. Start low. I am great on just 10mg, and I was suffering from ...

The only thing you can really do is try it and see if it helps you. Duloxetine is an SNRI antidepressant and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and weight changes.

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!!

Directions on taking Pliva 434 for insomnia

Does this pill work immediately as u take it or do u have to take it on a regular nightly basis to get the drug in ur system to work for ur insomnia? ## Hello, JJ! How are you? This tablet contains 100mgs of Trazodone, which is actually an antidepressant that causes drowsiness as a side effect. It will work the first time you take it, in most cases and not need any time to reach efficacy levels, since the drowsiness is a side effect. You may also experience dizziness, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## RE: Weight changes - What kind? Up or down? ## Do u get a headache every time u take them? Yes or no? ## My Doc prescribed me "Pliva 434" (Trazodone 100 mg) as a sleep-aid for insomnia. Isn’t that an antidepressant? I should have the SL ...

Scared to start Trintellix

I'm scared to start Trintellix. I have Major Depression. I get scared to start any new medicines but especially depression meds. My Dr gave me samples. I was also waiting to see if my insurance would cover it. (New insurance Oct. 1st) They said no unless I can produce dates and why others wouldn't work. That's impossible. I take Vyvanse and Klonopin. I've taken myself off depression medicines if they make me feel bad or weird. I can't take any that will make me gain weight. That just adds to the depression. After back surgery I only have 10 more lbs to lose. I can't do anything that I used to do because of back problems, so inactivity and not doing the things I love has made my depression worse. Other issues as well. I feel empty, things that used to make me shin...

Dangers of mirtazapine

It seems to me that Mirtazapine is a potentially dangerous drug with little information known about it. My veterinarian prescribed this drug in small quantities for my cat as an appetite stimulant, so I began reading articles on the drug and its effects. Although it is supposed to be used as an antidepressant for humans, it has a wide reputation for causing suicidal tendencies in children and young adults. It causes weight gain (the side effect my vet was looking for in my cat's case). It also can cause feelings of depression, and wooziness. I spoke with a nurse who took it and she said the effects of sluggishness and dizziness lasted 2 to 3 days. It can also cause nausea and headaches. It seems to me that these side effects are anything but what a person who is already depressed sh...
