furosemide ## As with many diuretics, Furosemide can cause dehydration and electrolyte imbalance, including loss of potassium, calcium, sodium, and magnesium. It is especially important to prevent potassium loss. Excessive use of Furosemide will most likely lead to a metabolic alkalosis due to hypochloremia and hypokalemia. It should be used with caution in horses with liver problems or electrolyte abnormalities. Overdose may lead to dehydration, change in drinking patterns and urination, seizures, GI problems, kidney damage, lethargy, collapse, and coma. For more information about this drug and its side effects, please refer to the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ...

WHAT KIND OF SIDE EFFECTS DOES ZOLOFT HAVE? ## Many, but the most common are: being less sexually active, restlessness, tiredness (especially when you first start taking it), headaches, and possible mood swings (especially if the drug isn't right for you). As being a Zoloft user myself, I can say I've only experienced sexual side effects (and I'm only 24!) and the headaches, but the headaches were from when I stopped taking it on a regular basis. Oh, and it comes packed w/ some pretty bad withdrawls if not weaned from it properly. ## Hello there Sara. I did not like Zoloft at all. I felt like a zombie. My reactions were extremely slow. I was shakey and felt clamy all over..Not very talkative. I felt like I was trapped inside my own body for a FULL 24 hours. Mind you .. I onl... ...

Has anyone noticed weight gain or stained teeth due to Advair usage? ## I was just logging on to find out if weight gain is a side effect of advair diskus. I started on advair a little over 2 years ago and since that time I have gained 30 lbs. My asthma doc says that inhaled meds do not cause weight gain. She says that my post-menapauasal status, combined with a less physically active job, are the cause of weight gain. I don't think I can take any more weght gain - please let me know about other people on advair whom are having this experience. If so, is there anything else I can do - are there any alternatives to the disc.

My mother's doctor started my 87 yr. old mother on Paxil in the nursing home & it completely changed her personality! She got many side effects... dry mouth, irritability, unable to focus on conversation & so on until she ended up with such severe abdominal pain & urinary retention that she ended up being readmitted to the hospital! Boy has she lost a lot of rehab time!! (she is recovering from a fractured hip) ## Whenever I forget to take my Paxil, I begin to feel anxious, moody,sad vulnerable and hopeless. Is this normal or is it just mental addication towards the drug? ## I don't understand, if you've been on the Paxil for any length of time, how could missing one dose have such an impact? ## paxill is a mental health drug she dont to be on it tell the doctor ... ...

what is the side effects of the drug pregabalin? I can't seem to find them. ## Pregabalin is essentially an acyclic analog of gabapentin which is more potent than gabapentin and has more linear pharmacokinetics. Neither drug is metabolized to any sigificant extent, and despite their names, neither drug acts as a GABA analog, or has any affinity for the benzodiazepine binding sites at GABA receptors. It's believed to modulate calcium gated ion channels. Drowsiness / grogginess are its most pronounced side effects, along with forgetting words or one's train of thought, and edema (swelling of the hands or lower extremities) and some degree of weight gain (2-5 pounds roughly). Naturally not everyone will experiece all of these to the same extent, if at all. Don't drive a car... ...

I just took my first Buspirone, would like to hear from anyone on side effects and how long before it worked for you ## I used Buspar for about a year and had good results in reduction of anxiety. The side effects I had were, about half an hour after I took a dose, I got a funny feeling in my head (sort of lightheaded, a little dizzy), and it was quite unpleasant. It lasted about 15 minutes and then went away. I eventually got tired of that feeling and gave it up. ## I AGREE WITH JAMES. I WENT ON BUSPAR FOR 3 WEEKS AND THEN STOPPED.

I just started treatment with lyrica and I am concerned about one of the side effects is weight gain. Is this a more prominent side effect or is it just possible.

I just want to know if one of the side effects of this drug is getting groggy or feeling of lightheadedness. It was prescribed by my doctor for my sciatica. Thanks. ## Yes, I have been taking 300 mg gabapentin for a week and I do feel groggy and lightheaded. I have taken antidepressants in the past and they all have that effect on me. I don't know if this drug is characterized as an antidepressant though. I am sensitive to meds. Be careful driving, etc. ## I've been taking gabapentin,a generic form of neurontin, for several years. It is not an antidepressant. My understanding of this drug is that it was designed for epileptic patients but has been being prescribed by many Doctors for the treatment of nerve pain. In the beginning it made me very light headed, dizzy and affected m... ...
