I did switch to valtrex for about a year at one point but ended up going back to acyclovir for multiple reasons. The only times I stopped suppressive therapy once I started it were because of pregnancy and for 6 months I was off while I participated in a research study.

Avatar n tn I have been on Paxil for over 10 years and have been thinking about getting off of it. What are the side effects of being on Paxil for such a long time? After reading some of the side effects of trying to get off Paxil, I am wondering if I should continue to take it for the rest of my life. Has anyone out there been on Paxil for as long as I have?
Avatar f tn I have been on Acyclovir once a day 400mg as a preventative for outbreaks for almost 2 years now. It has significantly helped lessen the amount of outbreaks as well as the duration if I do get one. I had to recently switch doctors and this new doctor is not willing to prescribe it to me anymore stating that the FDA has linked Acyclovir to causing cancer after 1 year of use. I can't find anything on FDA website or Google linking long term effects causing cancer.

Avatar f tn Jails, institutions or death are the most common long term side effects I have seen, or the person quits and has a program of recovery. Why do you ask?
Avatar f tn postmarketing experience with valacyclovir provides evidence of favorable safety and efficacy in herpes simplex virus (HSV) management. Valacyclovir enhances acyclovir bioavailability compared with orally administered acyclovir. Long-term use of acyclovir for up to 10 years for HSV suppression is effective and well tolerated.
Avatar n tn Hi I don't know I am just a lay person but I would be cautious about using any sleep medication with untreated sleep apnea. I wonder if your symptoms are the result of the sleep apnea vs the medication. Disturbed sleep can leave you feeling tired and low oxygen saturation levels could explain poor memory. I don't know of any long-term effects of Remeron. I have read that increased blood fats could pose a risk for some people though. This is said to be rare.

Avatar m tn I completely agree with Paxiled. If you're feeling good on this medication then why stop taking it? It's hard to say what withdrawal side effects a person may have but I don't think your cough was a side effect because you had it before you started this med. You know what's best for you and if this med is working then don't let your Dr try to take you off of it. That's just my opinion.
Avatar f tn You are experiencing side effects of Neurontin, is all. Diff people react diff ways to it. Me, I have nausea that bothers me a lot. The weight gain you ask about is one of the side effects, as are the other problems you are having. I've been taking it for two years, and I also started out on Lyrica, but becuz of cost I had to switch. Neurontin has only been around for about 15 years, so for at least for that length of time you're good.
Avatar f tn I'm more worried about the hair thinning right now. I've seen posts about people thinking their hair thinning is a result of the medication. The side effects I've found is a long list and hair thinning has been mentioned. I'm scared to death and beginning to panic about it.

Avatar m tn Dear whoever may know, I was diagnosed with anxiety and panic disorder 2 1/2 years ago, and I have been taking Lexapro at 10 mg per day ever since. The medicine has really seemed to have helped my life in all aspects. Whether it has really helped or if this is some kind of placebo effect, I am unsure. I still have moments of reasonable stress at work, but who doesn't...most importantly, I don't have panic attacks anymore.

Avatar n tn The meds u r asking about also known as protonix used for acid reflux and GERD.....will have side effects on some individuals.To know or understand what long term use could cause symptoms wise, ask ur pharmacist or dr. Since we all respond to meds differently it is very diff to say what long term use might do to u..... I am sure ur dr is watching ur blood levels and keeping a close eye on ur overall health and would suggest a diff med if he felt continued use would cause u harm.
Avatar n tn I am an otherwise healthy male, and wondered if the erectile issues were related to my regular and long-term use of stimulant medication. Eventually, I decided to titrate off the stimulate medication, after which I become fairly certain that there was a direct correlation between taking stimulants and reduced libido.

I successfully completed 6months tx in april 2007 and am now unable to do very much due to the fatigue,pain and confusion I've suffered since. Just wanted to be added to the list of damaged souls. Have lost a lot of friends to this horrible disease so am very glad to have cleared it but at what cost?
Avatar n tn There aren't any long term side effects. they have info on folks being on acyclovir suppressively for 25+ years now.
Avatar f tn give the acyclovir a try - you get less active acyclovir with plain acyclovir so you might have less side effects. You also can try famvir too.
