Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq) and Simvastatin

For at least a year or more I've been taking pristiq (generic) and simvastatin at the same time. I felt that the pristiq was no longer working because I was so very tired all of the time. It dawned on me that maybe there was an interaction between taking simvastatin and pristiq at the same time. I took them separately at least 3 hours apart and today have more energy and as the day wore on kept felling better. I know there isn't supposed to be an interaction if you take them together, but I can't help but think there is. Has anyone else taken them at the same time and then stopped taking them together and had better results with not feeling so tired all of the time and listless?

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,...

Fluoxetine sinus problems

I have been on fluoxetine for eight months. I am on 40 mg/day. I've always been prone to sinus infections, but my sinus problems have gotten worse and now I have this pain in my sinuses everyday. I realized that I started having worse sinus issues around the same time I started taking fluoxetine - its even documented in my doctor's notes that I have been complaining of sinus pains and infections since about 7 months ago. She says it's a rare side effect so fluoxetine is probably not the culprit, but the sinus pain has gotten so bad that I'm willing to stop taking the meds (the other side effects like the nightmares are driving me nuts too). Anyway, has anyone else had sinus problems related to fluoxetine or Prozac? ## Hello, Alaska! How are you? Actually, they aren't...

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...

Missed Cymgen 60mg - Side Effects?

I accidentally lost my Cymgen 60mg while on holiday and it was two days before I was able to get it again. The first day without it I experienced what I can only describe as a "zing" in my head. It's like I can see an electric pulse and feel the vibrations down my body. It's a sharp and quick sensation. Usually occurring when I stand up, or when I move around too much. The second day it got increasingly worse and I started a migraine. Is this normal? ## Yes, any time you've been taking a medication for awhile and suddenly miss a few doses, or stop taking it abruptly, it's normal to experience some mild withdrawal and rebound effects. Cymgen contains the active ingredient Duloxetine, which is an SNRI antidepressant and they can be especially problematic, since the...

HI I HAVE BEEN HAVING IRREGULAR SPOTTING AND BLEEDING FOR 4 MONTHS AT FIRST I WAS GIVEN TRIPHASIL TO STOP BUT IT DIDN'T THEN I WAS GIVEN FAMYNOR WHICH STOPPED THE BLEEDING BUT WAS GIVING ME ENDLESS HEADACHES WHEN I STOPPED TAKING IT THINKING PROBLEM IS OVER SPOTTING RETURNED MY LIFE IS A MESS AM CONSTANTLY DEPRESSED I DO NOT KNOW IF ITS CANCER OR WHAT THE HOSPITALS AND CLINIC'S KEEP TRYING TO STOP BLEEDING NOT TELLING ME THE CAUSE ## Hello Cleo, Since the Famynor worked for the bleeding have you discussed with your doctor trying a medication another medication that works in a similar manner but may have different ingredients? I'm sure if the doctors knew what the cause of your irregular bleeding was they would have informed you by now and most certainly if they suspected tha...

amitriptyline and oxycodone

I've been taking 7.5mg Oxycodone for my pain after an accident a while ago. I recently was prescribed Amitriptyline 50mg for Anxiety and Depression. Are these 2 drugs safe to take together at there dosages? I've read it has a significant reaction about increasing the level of drowsiness and sedation, but does that mean it can be life threating or just a possible warning? ## Hello HunterOrion, I did some research and found the same thing you mentioned. According to the FDA the reaction between these two drugs is that they may increase the sedative properties. This was listed as a "moderate" interaction which means it's not life threatening in itself but could be fatal given certain conditions. Whenever you are taking medication that causes you to be drowsy or has seda...

Petition - Stop the DEA from interfering with chronic pain patients.

I just signed the petition "Barack Obama: Stop the DEA from interfering with chronic pain patients and their medical professionals." and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name. Our goal is to reach 100 signatures and we need more support. You can read more and sign the petition here: change.org/p/barack-obama-stop-the-dea-from-interfering-with-chronic-pain-patients-and-their-medical-professionals?recruiter=226947221 Thanks! ## Thanks for showing your support! The DEA interfering with a doctor's practice has been a long drawn out issue for quite some time. I don't know if there's an end in sight to this upheaval, but in this day and age it seems we all have to learn how to manage our problems differently (through other means) or continue down the path of ...

What is teva 7544 used for? Is it duloxitine? it's a big blue and aqua capsule ## Hello, Denise! How are you? Yes, Teva lists it as containing 60mgs of Duloxetine. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## What is Teva 7544 used for? I thought Teva was for an infection. When I got bit by a spider they gave me Teva cream.

pain management doctors who will prescribe medications around Richmond or Mechanicsville or Ashland VA

I have Sciatica, Spondeliosis, Degenerative Disc Disease and Fibromyalgia in both my hips & legs, I have had 3 sets of nerve blocker injections that did not help.

Please! Not a med seeker. I just need to manage my pain with strong pain killers and need to get something for energy as I have severe depression and chronic pain. Going to all these referral places is a waste of time and energy and costly as well. ## Anyone in Ventura county that can give me an idea on where to go? I was dumb and started self-medicating.

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...

Bupropion XL by Cipla Pharmaceuticals

My pharmacy has been giving me refills of the generic bupropion for my last two refills that are manufactured by CIPLA. The pill is oblong and has the number 13 on one side and what appears to be a capital I on the other side. I do not feel that this generic is doing much for me. I have researched this manufacture they are located in India. Approximately 45% of the medications that are sold in the United States are manufactured in foreign countries. I am going to call my pharmacy to see if they can get one of the generics that were previously dispensed to me. The buyers for drugs at pharmacies look to find lower priced drugs, which I understand. I have been taking Wellbutrin XL 150 mg three tablets daily for about eight years including the generic form. This medication helped my severe ...

Tapering off of Effexor XR -- Remove the beads slowly!

I am an MD who was RX Effexor XR for depression over 10 years ago. I took 75mg for many years and felt fine for a long time, but then wanted to get off of it. I would be in a panic if I forgot to take my pill and would experience strange dizzy/buzzing sensation behind my eyes. I was able to taper down to the 37.5mg pretty easily by alternating daily between 75mg/37.5mg. Then I got stuck and tried taking the lower dose every other day or every 36 hours but the side effects were too great. Then luckily, my new partner suggested opening up the capsules and tapering off with beads. I have been doing that now for about a year and a half. The original generic brand capsule had about 39 beads in and I was able to get down to 6 beads. When I tried to stop I couldn't function. I was shocked ...

What Is The Best Generic Version Of Wellbutrin Xl - Watson or Anchen?

My doctor will not prescribe generic Wellbutrin XL but my insurance will no longer pay for brand name drugs. I will have to pay about $7000 per yer for what I am taking now (3 of the 150mg Wellbutrin XL brand name per day). I am reading that the problem with the generics is the time release mechanism and not the drug itself and that some are better than others. Anybody have experience with the generics made by Watson and /or Anchen? ## I have no experience using it, but I do understand the problems that can occur with generic medications. I also did some searching and from what I've found online, most that have tried the one manufactured by Anchen have had good results with it. However, you may not get the same results, the only way to find out is to actually try it and see how it w...

New to Elavil. Any feedback would be great

Today I went to the dr. She switched my Effexor and Buspar to Elavil. I have never taken this medication before. Its 25mg x 2 daily. I'm very interested in this medicine because I have a very hard time gaining weight and I've read blogs on yes it can cause weight gain. I'm also interested in how tired and sleepy it will make me. That's one negative effect I don't want. I'm more interested in energy and good mood lift... Any feedback would be appreciated, thx ## I think all these meds for mood and anxiety cause sleepy and no energy feelings. I've had to take many and all them make you tired and no energy ## I agree with you on this. I just started elavil 25mg before bed..I find myself sleeping later each morning. Which I don't like. Thank god I'm still...

USAGE OF LIBOTRYP TABLETS

MY MOTHER HAS BEEN USING THE TABLET LIBOTRYP FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS AFTER GALL BLADDER REMOVAL SURGERY. WILL THE USE OF LIBOTRYP CAUSE KIDNEY OR LIVER DAMAGE? ## Most medications are processed through the liver and long-term use of them risks organ damage, however, no one can definitively say that they will or will not cause it in any particular person. Some people will develop problems and some won't, that is how it works with any medication and the reasons why it happens to some people and not others is unknown. Libotryp contains Amitriptyline and Chlordiazepoxide, it is most commonly used as an antidepressant, but can also help with anxiety. Its common side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and weight gain. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## I HAD H...
