how long does zanaflex
2 Replies RSS
I was taking zanaflex 3 times a day for only 5-7 days. Since stopping I have had anxiety and panic attacks. The dosage was 2mg each time. I know this seems petty but I feel as if I'm having withdraws. I ended up in the ER from a panic attack and now I'm wondering if it's because I stopped am taking zanaflex? I've never had this feeling and it's a feeling I can't overcome. How long does withdraws last? ## I'm sorry about the problems you're having. However, this medication doesn't usually cause that, especially after such a low dose for such a short period of time. Its just a muscle relaxant, so it isn't habit forming and the FDA lists its typical side effects as including nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, headache and dry mouth. Are you on any other ... ...

stopping sprintec

Hi, I was on sprintec for nearly 4 years and everything was fine when I was on it. But do to health problems with my gallbladder I had to quit taking it. It's been nearly 4 months and I still haven't had a normal period. I think I had one that lasted 3 days and then another one about a week ago that only lasted one day. Is this normal since I was on it for so long? ## Hello, Lauren! How are you? Yes, it can take several months for your body to balance your hormones back out on its own. It was used to relying on the oral contraceptives to control them. However, as long as your last pap smear was normal and your doctor sees no reason to be concerned, then it's nothing to worry about. According to the FDA, you may experience other withdrawal effects, such as irritability, PMS-l... ...

1 Reply RSS
I am disabled, and have seen the same doctor for approx. 12 years. I see my doctor, in office, every 3 months. I have minimum of four diagnoses, re: my neck, back, hip, shoulder, and sciatic pain. Every single pharmacy in my town claims to be out of stock, for my pain medications. I have done extensive research, and the risks of abruptly stopping my (pain) medication are severe. Why are these pharmacies playing games with patients who are victims of long-term, chronic pain? ## Hello, Missy! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. However, the pharmacies aren't playing games. There is always a shortage of controlled substances for the last few months of the year and has been for as long as I can remember. There are mandatory manufacturing limits and ... ...

How long will my withdrawal symptoms from Cymgen last?
1 Reply RSS
I was taking Cymgen 60mg for about 7 months, and I recently changed to Brintellix. To ween myself off of Cymgen, I took a half dosage for 8 days, then took both my new prescription of Brintellix and my half dose of Cymgen for another 4 days before completely stopping with Cymgen, as recommended by my psychiatrist. I have had horrible withdrawal symptoms, and I'd like some indication of how long they should last for? They include vertigo, dizziness, headaches, nausea etc.. ## Hello, Gabby! How are you? Have your symptoms gotten any better? You may actually be experiencing a double whammy, withdrawal effects from stopping the one, as well as new side effects from starting the Brintellix, the FDA lists everything you mentioned as being among it's typical side effects.

coreg, any problems stopping?
3 Replies RSS
I've been on coreg 4 days. Side effects are so bad, I'm so tired I can hardly move and just feel s****y. I stopped for 2 days for a stress evaluation and had no problem at that time. Then I took one 3.125 last night. I don't want to take anymore. Is there any problem stopping treatment? My blood pressure wasn't that high to begin with, maybe around 140 over 80. ## Hello, Ralph! How are you? Those side effects can be normal for the first few weeks after starting such a medication. As reported by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache and increased urination. However, they are usually transient and should go away, once your body gets used to the medication. The danger to not taking it is that your blood pressure could keep going higher. It's actua... ...

Lo Loestrin/ stopping period

Ive been on the depo for 11 yrs and have never had a period. I got off the shot in February bc I wanted to conceive but hadn't had a regular period until last month August 26. It lasted for 7 days and it was awful!!! I just started my period today and it is very painful and heavy. My boyfriend comes home Wednesday and I dont want to still be on my period. If I start taking lo loestrin Sunday will it help stop my period? ## Unfortunately, there is no way to say for sure, plus if you are taking it, you will most likely not be able to conceive, since it is also used to prevent pregnancy.

Hi, I took 7 pills last month to delay my mens and after stopping the pills got my period on the 3rd day. It was largely clots and irregular bleeding. This was on 23rd June. Recently, I have started developing sore breasts. Am I pregnant? I already took a test and it is negative. Is this a side effect? Please help. ## Yes, there is a chance that it a side effect of the medication, according to NIH reports. You may also experience headache, dizziness, and irritability. Are you on any other medications? Sometimes, taking a hormonal product to try to adjust our periods can throw off our cycles for awhile, and it may take several months for things to return to normal.

cymgen withdrawals- How long and what to do??
1 Reply RSS
I have been on Cymbalta, then changed to the generic Cymgen (30mg) for 8 years. I decided after this amount of time to stop and asked my psychiatrist on ways to do this. FISRT of all, my psychiatrist said that because i was on such a low dose that there will be NO side effects of stopping the drug. My response was to inform her that on days i have missed taking my meds i have severe head zaps and couldn't manage just stopping (Cold Turkey) if that was the case. She then put me on a course to taper off: X2 weeks 30mg Cymgen & 20mg LilyFluoxetime (prozac)- After two weeks i stopped the Cymgen and carried on taking the lily for another two weeks as requested by my doctor. I had my last Lily on the 18th of July 2016. It is now the 10th of August 2016. The withdrawals are so severe t... ...

Stopping the 12 mcg fentanyl patch
3 Replies RSS
I can't seem to find a straight answer. I'm stopping the 12 mcg fentanyl patch (with Drs instructions). I have 7.5mg Percocet for withdrawal for a few days but everyone is leaving me believe my withdrawal won't be too bad. I called the pharmacist. She said withdrawal will last 48 hours. That seems too good to be true. So, anyone know?! ## It really depends on the person and how long they've been on it, so you may not experience any withdrawal symptoms, or you may experience them for a few weeks, there's no way to be certain. I believe the pharmacist may have been referring to how long it takes to exit your body, which is approximately 48 hours after last use. The FDA warns that possible withdrawal effects could include nausea, vomiting, chills, rebound pain and diarr... ...

According to the FDA, the symptoms you've described are all normal withdrawal effects. However, since you were down to taking so few for the last few months, they likely won't get much worse and shouldn't last more than a week or 2.

Stopped sprintec after only a week?

I stopped taking my birth control sprintec after a week due to health issues but it has been three weeks since the last pill and still no period. I am four days late from my regular period and I was wondering when it should start. I did take a pregnancy test 2 days before my period should have started and it was negative. ## Hello, Stacey! How are you? Even though you only took it for a week, you likely threw off your natural hormonal balance, so it will probably take awhile, before things balance back out and return to normal. Other effects of stopping it may also include headache, weight changes, mood swings and irregular periods, as listed by the FDA. If there is no change, after a few more weeks, you should consult your doctor to be sure. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Y... ...

i have been taking Phenergan for over 6 years after several back fusions. I have become very ill after stopping the use of Phenergan with extreme nausea and headaches and flue like symptoms. This has been happening for over a week and I am getting sicker every day. I finally took a phenergan pill last night and all of the bad symptoms stopped. How do I stop using this drug without becoming so ill? ## Phenergan contains the active ingredient Promethazine, which is an antihistamine that's also often used to prevent nausea and vomiting.
