Avatar n tn Hi, I have been on Effexor XR for 3 years and I have gained about 40-50pounds, most when my dose was increased to 225, now I am on 75mg b/c I'm getting ready to wean off the medicine in a couple of weeks,and I haven't lost anything yet. My eating habits have not changed and I exercise. I have always been underweight and I could eat whatever I wanted...I'm only 26 years old...I know my metabolism has changed some, but not enough to pack on 40 pounds.
Avatar n tn com/p/articles/mi_g2601/is_0003/ai_2601000373 CFIDS stands for Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome.The nonspecific nature of the name CFIDS is appropriate because while there are many symptoms, disabling fatigue and exhaustion are the most prominent and consistent. The rest have either headaches, muscle pain, joint pain, visual disturbances, emotional changes, memory loss, confusion, lymph node pain, or abdominal pain as the most severe symptom.
Avatar f tn i am. Ibi, i have it in my brain i can't sleep with out a zolpidem (ambien, not cr). I read and read and get so sleepy, turn off the light and wham, wide awake. Weird. Hopefully longer in my sobriety this will all get better. I am asking my sponsor today and therapist tomorrow. Y'all have a great day. Check in later. got to get to hit the shower and the road. ps>if they aren't losing evidence, they are contaminating it!

116701 tn?1210262764 While walking in circles I think that NY has arrived at the intersection of disinterest and dysfunction. But cool? Next she'll tell us she misses her boss and anxiously awaits his return.
1188101 tn?1264493582 Actually, that had occurred to me; however, the pt. has been taking Ambien for several years, and this is a comparatively recent complaint. Although not a depressant, but a hypnotic, Ambien can contribute to sexual dysfunction...though it's transient, and decreases over time. Yes, I've ruled out circulatory issues. The pt. is on a mild vasodialator, which caused some concern with the addition of the Cialis...
108944 tn?1222281078 Let's see...geodon, thyroid, wellbutrin, provigil, clonazepam, and ambien. I don't like that I'm on so many medications, but I do like the results that I'm getting. I've never felt better in my life (except that my anxiety has been acting up lately). I'm sorry to hear about your weight gain, but just wanted to be an encouragement to you that you can lose weight. If you do what weight watchers says, I think it will work.

Avatar n tn at certain times some things seem SO important My liver doc says occasional use is fine, but to use the lowest effective dose. Of the 3 drugs for male sexual dysfunction, Viagra, Levitra and Cialis, Cialis is the most toxic to the liver, and carries the strongest warning. Hope the info helps, and the Viagra too!
Avatar n tn Also depression is sporadic but difficult and during tx was non-stop.My worse side. Also sexual dysfunction-desire fine but erectile dysfunction. Correctable with drugs(cialis).I would like to talk more but I have an idiot here at work who reads over my shoulder and I must stop so I can DESTROY him. Oh yeah, and my temper is kinda frikken short!
Avatar m tn Other issues which turned out to be symptoms of low testosterone included extreme fatigue, lack of motivation, low self-esteem, irritability, difficulty retaining information, loads of fat around the belly despite eating very healthily and actually being well underweight, erectile dysfunction, insomnia etc.

Avatar m tn I too have been diagnosed with a small (3mm) pituitary microadenoma. My saga began about 3 years ago at age 42 when I started going through "manopause". Symptoms included hot flashes,severe anxiety attacks, sleep problems, sexual dysfunction and disabling fatigue among other symptoms. I went to a urologist who determined that I was suffering from hypogonadism of pituitary etiology. He put me on testosterone gel. This helped with some of the symptoms but my severe fatigue persisted.
Avatar n tn I am now taking about 15mgs or Timolol per day for heart palps and transient hypertension. I also have recently in the last two weeks reduced my Ambien CR 12.5mgs to no more than 3 nights a week. If I have a rough day I may take a 0.5mg Xanax PRN but never more than 0nce or twice a week. I also take 15mgs of Remeron.
Avatar n tn This may not be the root of the problem but the SI dysfunction will cause low back pain. I had this for a couple of years and blew it off and then the pain became severe and has spread throughout my hip area. I recently found out that I have misformed hips and this has caused degeneration of my hips and tendons surrounding my hips. If I had gotten the diagnoses a couple of years ago I may not be in such pain right now.
Avatar n tn 30am or 7:00. I have been very tired, very tired and a little bit anxious...which I guess is going off the Zoloft "cold turkey"??? What am I to do now? I hat to start taking the Zoloft again. How long will this w/drawal last before I feel normal again? I am planning to start walking w/ my neighbor daily to help get the serotonin levels back up. I am not eating sugar. What is your advise? I sure wish I did not have to take the Zoloft anymore.
Avatar n tn Mouth sores that are chronic and often severe Memory dysfunction Balance issues and gait disturbances Peripheral neuritis,, numbness, and nerve dysfunction Development of high blood pressure Lack of energy and motivation Sexual dysfunction, erectile issues, peyronie's disease Tendonitis, often affecting hands and feet, legs... Costochondritis (chronic rib pain) Vision problems, eye inflammation, dry eye. These are some of the sx that people have complained of post-tx.
Avatar f tn But since they put me on celexa, back on buspar, ambien and xanax I feel like it's way too much medication for me. so I want to lower the dose of the pain meds even of the pain will be worse.
Avatar n tn I have gone to literally over 14 doctors- orthos,neurolgists, neurosurgeons, general practioners, and none of them has acknowledged my symptoms, but will only look at my MRIs and say, "everything's fine". I have stopped going because I am so sick of paying them for not doing anything for me. My problem is related to my lower back and on one MRI a radiologist actually called it what it was- a slight? herniation of L5-S1 and a central disk "protrusion" in L4-L5.
192055 tn?1263559137 My husband fell on his penis when he was younger while at a skating ring- he is now 20. Ever since then, he had a indention above his penis. Another symptom is that his penis retracts into his body when his adrenaline gets going. He would literally have to pull it out before it goes all the way in.
Avatar n tn I had earlier success with Ambien, but I have had to take it 4 of the last 6 nights, and have only gotten 3-4 hours of sleep each time. Can't stand those long overnights wide awake, nor the long "foggy" days, like I'll have today. I have to work through this to support the family.

1932256 tn?1327949940 He told them to reduce his dosage every week by 10mg and he's now down to 40 (as of this morning) and the pain and suffering he's going through is about to kill him and me both! PLEASE TELL ME HOW I CAN HELP HIM!! He's drinking vodka like crazy to try and sleep and ease the pain but it's not helping as far as I can tell. He vomits (violently) many times a day, can't eat more than 1/2 cup of soup or a glass of Instant Breakfast in a day.
Avatar f tn It started off as every now and then but for the last month it is all the time 24/7. It is really taking a toll on my life. It is so bad it wakes me up and prevents me from falling asleep. I have had thyroid, hormones, mri, ct scan and many other tests. The only test that came back questionable was my ANA, it is positive, speckled pattern. My RA factor was negative. I have no diagnosis as of yet. I do have Epstein Barr virus too.
Avatar n tn I know you understand. Does the Ambien help for you and what is the hydrocodone? I am very interested to hear the results of your blood tests. I sincerely hope you get an answer.
Avatar n tn I feel like my body's thermostat is broken and I'm constantly overheating. I've been taking Claritin and Benadryl but that doesn't seem to help at all. My doctor also gave me a prescription medicine called Atarax, which only makes me drowsy and doesn't help the itchy feeling. Any suggestions? Btw, I've taken blood tests to see if there is anything wrong but everything came out fine.
Avatar f tn Finding this news out is both devistating, and hurtful to me and my husband. We feel we have given her all the love and support, counseling, and treatment we could. We even started trusting her again, which I thought I would never do! How could she do this to us???!!! I understand it's the drug that is more enticing than pleasing your family, but the hurt is overwhelming. We put her in detox and this is only day 3 for her right now.
