Differences between Trazodone and Tramadol

What are the differences between Trazodone and Tramadol? Are they the same thing? Do they have similar uses? ## No, they are not the same. Trazodone is an antidepressant that is also used to treat anxiety, and some severe forms of anxiety. (NDC code 0179-1118) The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. However, Tramadol is an opioid that is used to relieve pain. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and constipation. It also carries the risk of being habit forming. (NDC code 0093-0058) Is there anything else I can help with? ## Trazodone is an older anti-depressant. Considered an SARI. It is most widely prescribed nowadays as a non-benzo sleep aid. It works ...

Bupropion XL 300 by Lupin (L016)

Has anyone tried Bupropion XL 300 by Lupin - a round pill marked L016? Just received these from Walgreen's internet pharmacy and I'm very concerned. I started taking this medication about two years ago, the PAR generic, and everything was great. Then, CVS changed to Cipla and things got bad -- it was only thanks to Medschat that I figured out the problem was caused by the new manufacturer. So, I switched to Walgreens, which had Actavis. It was so much better for me than Cipla but not quite as good as PAR. Quite by accident, I found that when ordering from Walgreen's internet pharmacy I got the med manufactured by PAR. All's been good for many months... until I just opened my newest prescription and found it's by a newly approved generic by Lupin. Hopefully it will be...

Adderrall Libido & ED

Ive read a lot of men are having trouble with there libido or ED on this med I am currently on 10 mg twice a day last month & I find the opposite to be true. Because of other meds ( High BP Cholesterol Bypass surgery ) and Wellbutrin being in my late 50's My libido was gone for about 2 years ago I started with Testosterone shots monthly then daily underarm which helped because my numbers were very low but didnt quite make it all the way spotty but better.

My only downside is occasional crashes and some sleeplessness any one have the same experience ? Ive read it can go either way but usually the opposite of what i am experiencing Ive also onl...

I just got a new refill, Generic Bupropion but they look just like the Wellbutrin & my stomach pain has come back. I need help.

Prozac and ms contin

Hi all! Just wondering if anyone has been prescribed both an SSRI (Prozac) plus pain management such as MS Contin with breakthrough percocet? My husband needs something for depression but I didn't know if it would be safe to take (they tried him on zoloft and it caused him to have horrible back pain). Thanks for any experiences!! ## There is a possible interaction, you can read about it on the University of Chicago Medicine site. They warn about the risk of Serotonin syndrome. It isn't that they cannot be taken together, but a doctor should be closely monitoring the person if they care combined. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you!! I've read the studies and of course a doctor is prescribing but they don't know everything (I've been a registered nurs...

Thank you ## I just sent an email to Teva Pharm (the manufacturer of this pill); asking whether or not it contains wheat gluten as a part of the inactive ingredients.

My pharmacy just switched generics. Ever since I have been feeling increasingly worse. Today I had a major reaction. Sweats, nightmares, tremors, speech problems. So bad that when I went to my dr she told me to stop taking the medication which I have been on for two years immediately. Now I'm afraid that I'm going to be feeling awful. ## Hello, Karen!

citalopram hbr 20 mg tablet

pink oval antidpressant ## 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 antid...

Updated in Citalopram

My physician placed me on a 15mg dose of Mirtazapine beginning with just a 'half' dose for the 1st week. I tried this dosage for 2 nights and ended up having 'heigthened' throbbing and 'restless-like' syndrome of my entire body-especially the right side. I have Fibromyalgia, Renauds' syndrome and have suffered from years of sleep problems. I have been on varying doses of Elavil over the last 12 yrs but this no longer helps. I do suffer from mild depression, mostly due to work stresses but I have been on a medical leave since July 11'05 post rotator cuff surgery. Tonight I will be trying Ambien- 5mg dose. The claim that Mirtazapine is used to treat 'tremors' is contradictory in my case-seemed like it was causing mild tremor-like throbbing with my l...

Can Urbanol or Mirtazapine make you gain weight?

I'm currently on Urbanol 10mg and Mirtazapine 30mg. I gained a lot of weight within 3 weeks. Can it be the Urbanol or the Mirtazapine or both? Plz help. ## I am also on Mirtazapine for 3 months now. It's widely known that weight gain is a side-effect of this drug as it stimulates the appetite and makes you eat more. I have also gained weight, something which is normally difficult for me. ## Giarno is correct, weight gain is a listed side effect of Mirtazapine, both with short and long-term use. Rapid weight gain, such as what you've experienced has also been a common complaint. Other side effects may include drowsiness, dry mouth, and headache. Have you continued to gain?

aurobindo venlafaxine - muscle and joint pain

I have taken Venlafaxine XR Capsules - 2 150 mg per day (a high dosage). They were made by the same manufacturer for the first 3 or 4 years. Then, my insurance company switched to the manufacturer Aurobindo. Since then, I have had severe joint and muscle pain, primarily in my arms, but also somewhat in my hands. This pain is so severe that without aspirin, Tylenol, or Aleve, I can barely reach or lift things. Could this pain be due to the change in manufacturerr of my Venlafaxine XR? ## Hello, Debra! How are you? How long have you been taking the one from Aurobindo? Usually, those types of symptoms would be side effects experienced, when first starting such a medication, or when your dosage is raised, as reported by the FDA. When I first started Prozac and each time we upped my dosage, ...

Trazodone Prescription Information

What is the safest and quickest method to stop taking Trazodone? ## My daughter has been taking trazodone for 2.5 years at 150 mg. Can you just stop taking it or do you have to be weaned off? If you just stop will there be risks? ## Trazodone is an SARI antidepressant, so it works on brain chemicals, which means an abrupt cessation of it could result in some withdrawal symptoms and a rebound effect. The rebound effect is usually the biggest problem, because it may result in symptoms that are worse than what someone was taking it to treat. Learn more Trazodone details here. Thus, a slow gradual taper, under the supervision of a physician, is the best and safest way to stop these types of medications. Are there any other questions or comments? Is there anything I can help with? ## I need ...

Effexor XR, Clonazepam, Prazocin and alcohol...

I'm getting concerned about my husband. He has been put on Effexor XR 75 mg, together with Prazosin, and Clonazepam 1 mg, for depression and anxiet and PTSD. When he feels more anxious he will take another Clonazepam, or a half mg of it. I realize his dosages aren't high on these medications but he is also extremely sensitive to meds, so for him this may well be a lot. Lately he has been drinking, after being completely off the alcohol for quite a few years. He will start drinking wine after work, and will drink 3 or more 16 oz glasses. Then he will take another 1.5 of clonazepam some nights, or else 2 Tylenol PM's and go to sleep. I know the drill about drinking and I try not to nag him but I did tell him this pattern is dangerous, against his doctor's instructions and ...

Citalopram and Phentermine

I've been taking Citalopram for a week now, so far so good except for feeling a little tired but hoping it will go away. I want to continue with my weight loss program taking a half of 37ml of phentermine so I can get the energy I need in the morning at the gym, don't want to feel too anxious. Has anyone experienced any interactions or any weird side effects with this combination? Thank you so much. ## Hi Andrea, Based on my research, there is an interaction listed between these two medications; which states the following: "GENERALLY AVOID: Several case reports suggest that serotonin reuptake inhibitors may potentiate the pharmacologic response to sympathomimetic agents. The exact mechanism of interaction is unclear. In one case report, a patient experienced jitteriness, rac...
