Avatar f tn I want to start Tecfidera next month, but if these side effects are not gone by then (so I can gauge the possible side effects of Tecfidera) then I am going to give up th eWellbutrin. Dr keeps telling me to give it a month. really? 3 weeks is almost a month. I'm so tired of this... It was good to hear others having the same lasting problems (not that I'm glad you had them, just that I'm not alone).
Avatar m tn Ha. I love this. A simple list addressing every vital function or organ of the body. They don't even bother with the standard "boiler plate" hog wash sentence that most drug information monograms have. It is a sentence that goes something like this: "Side effects that go away upon cessation of treatment" That is probably because most of the side effects feel like they linger forever! But hey, what you gonna do?
647120 tn?1256605251 I weaned off of Effexor because I haven't been able to have an orgasm in 4 months. Since weaning off the Effexor, other side effects seem much worse. No lesser evil to trade for, in my opinion. I think I need to get off of the morphine, but then I'm back to square one with the pain. Just wanted to get some feedback from others who have had these kinds of side effects. Light-headedness is also getting me way down. I thought these sides would all be gone by now.
370801 tn?1264408618 Well, my doctor put me on Bupropian SR 100 mg in the morning and another 100 mg in the evening. The side effects aren't bad at all and it has definitely helped me with my social anxiety and I'm just able to walk around and enjoy life more. I have been taking it for a bout 2 weeks now, and I have been travelling the whole time. I return home tommorow so I will see how I feel in my normal daily life. But my depression is still pretty bad..
Avatar n tn I was fortunate enough to be treated with pegylated interferon and ribaviran combination therapy for 48 weeks in 2006/07. I had many side effects during treatment, but I have cleared the virus. The comments from all of you are mirroring my life. I have joint pain in my fingers, wrists, elbows, ankles, knees, hips. I have muscle aches and fatigue from any activity. I have depression. I have lower back pain. I don't sleep well.

Avatar f tn I could go through each one and list the indications, contraindications and side effects but I am not a pharmacist...or a physician. I encourage you to consult your local pharmacist. Call and request a time you could speak to him/her in detail. They are the true experts in medications....and we often over look their expertise. Make a list of any specific questions you have before your consult. Be sure to take a pen and paper with you to jot down anything you want to remember.
Avatar f tn The one med u r on Wellbutrin also known as bupropion...this med can have side effects that u should talk over with ur Dr. What are the possible side effects of bupropion? Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Avatar f tn The irritability and moods is a common side effect of taking antidepressants, any of them, depending on the person, and more so with the more stimulating ones. Abilify is a drug with a lot of side effects and not a great record of success in trials, and was approved only when all other antidepressants hadn't worked. But some have found it a useful drug to add a small amount to another drug that is working but not completely.
Avatar n tn If you return to this forum I'm sure someone will know the side effects of Zoloft.. I do not... it's an antidepressant and this is probably why your friend feels better. I am replying to let you know that you can go to any pharmacy and ask to get a printout or package leaflet on any prescription drug. You will be able to read the possible side effects from common ones to very rare ones. I have done this on occasion even when I was not there to pick up a prescription. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I'll put up with a lot of side effects not to go back there again.... I don't know much about vitamins and supplements and such, but there's a woman over on the alcohol forum who knows a lot. Her name is FL and then something after the FL, I can't remember what it is. But she knows what vitamin is good for this and valerian for that and St. John's wort for this, etc. She is very knowledgable about that stuff. You might look her up. Good luck to you!
Avatar f tn and prescribed cetrizine and ranitidine which I'm very afraid of starting because of the side effects. I've been diagnosed 30 years ago with manic depression for which I take 300 mg of bupropion SR. Read several articles on histamines and am surprised at the number of diseases, including several mental illnesses, that are affected by high levels of histamines. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn There are a number of medications that help mood similar ways to SSRIs that don’t have as many or as bothersome sexual side effects. Unfortunately, each of these has different side effects of it’s own. I have listed them below. ● Bupropion (Wellbutrin) – This medication is often used for depression and has been found to be as effective as SSRIs. It is used widely and is generally safe. Of all the anti-depressants it appears to have the lowest incidence of sexual side effects.
Avatar n tn , was previously approved to treat seizures, as well as pain from damaged nerves that can happen in people with diabetes (diabetic peripheral neuropathy) and in those who develop pain following the rash of shingles. Side effects of Lyrica including sleepiness, dizziness, blurry vision, weight gain, trouble concentrating, swelling of the hands and feet, and dry mouth. Lastly, Paxil can also be associated with weight gain. Again as stated before Wellbutrin has a lower incidence of weight gain .
200956 tn?1425595139 I think you probably need to research on the internet (side effects, etc.) and discuss it with your doctor. I did that, looked up every single AD to compare side effects. Another concern is you have to be sure that you can take the AD along with the triple med treatment. The triple meds interact with many different drugs so you have tom get an AD that can be taken with triple med therapy. I used this site to plug in all meds I would be taking and see if any of them interact: http://www.
Avatar m tn Cymbalta had very strong sexual side effects for me. MAybe not for you ? Wellbutrin didnt work for me. I think you are doing all the right things, people under report the sexual side effects because of embarrassment, you should not have to live with that and you have a right to say that it is intolerable to you. I wonder how the Doctor would feel if they had to put up with that.
Avatar f tn im now 46 living with long term side effects from all treatments....for the last 2 office visits ive took pee test to make sure im taking my pills,,,well he says im not taking my medicine im so dumn founded how do i prove im taking them he ask me are you selling the pills i felt so bad for nothing i cant win this battle he has all the control.. what can i do.. i take FENTANYL 25MG EVERY 3DAYS...

Avatar m tn This is not the appropriate forum for this discussion. Without question, Tamoxifen has side effects - every single medication does, even aspirin - but the decision to use traditional therapies vs alternative or more holistic therapies, or a mix of them, rests with a woman and her doctor. We have an Alternative Therapy forum if you'd like to discuss it more - http://www.medhelp.

237509 tn?1189759428 Conversely, bupropion may antagonize the central pharmacologic effects of sedatives. Bupropion can cause agitation, anxiety, and insomnia and has been shown to decrease the sedative effect of diazepam in healthy volunteers given single doses of the drugs. MANAGEMENT: Although sedatives may be prescribed to treat agitation, anxiety, and insomnia associated with bupropion use, patients should be alerted to the possibility of an increased risk of seizures during excessive exposure to these drugs.
Avatar n tn I'm going to see my doc early next week and would like to know from y'all what meds have had the best effect on these depression side effects (emotions just under the surface, confusion, disinterest, etc).
337492 tn?1212462436 I don't care for the Zoloft because of the sexual side effects but otherwise it works for me. My doc's view on anti-depressants & manic-depressives is that as long as the lithium is continued as prescribed (or whatever anti-manic drug is used) is that the anti-manic drugs will "keep a lid" on any mania the anti-depressants may cause. I'm having more of a struggle with falling into depression (winter) right now than rising into mania.
Avatar n tn Do you recommend taking Wellbutrin (name brand)? I've read up on the side effects (at least in this forum), and I see they can be very severe, but I'm generally very lucky against side effects.
Avatar n tn I started 150xl budeprion and read all the comments about it being worse, FDA approval, more side effects etc. I actually felt high the first week and then I just felt so much better; I didn't realize how depressed I was. Then my doctor and I agreed to increase to 300xl so I took two of the 150xl budeprion in the morning. I felt a little high but much better so I told her to go ahead with writing for 300xl. I got my rx and the pharmacy gave my 300xl bupropion (BUPR) not (BUD).
Avatar m tn The doctor advised to avoid triple therapy to start with, saying side effects can be reduced if I can respond well to the PegInterferon and Riba combo. His plan was to put me on triple therapy if the viral load does not drop 2 log at by week 4 of treatment. My week 4 viral load came at 1770, more than a 3 log drop. Now the doctor says I responded well to the treatment and that I don't need the 3rd drug (Telapravir) for some more time.
Avatar n tn These reactions are unexpected to the victims and even their physicians because SKB has deliberately or recklessly failed to properly warn of these. Some of the common complaints and side effects of Paxil included jolting electric zaps, dizziness, motor instability, extreme nausea, vomiting, high fever, abdominal discomfort, flu-like symptoms, agitation, anxiety, insomnia, aggression, nightmares, suicidal ideation, akathisia, tremor, seizures, and confusion."......

Avatar m tn I didn't feel any less tired, etc. while on the antidepressants in the past...Since Prozac causes sexual side effects, I didn't want to be on it. I have been to the endocrinologist, gastro, psychologist, urologist, cardiologist, etc...I am going to see a food allergist in 2 weeks. I thought maybe it could be a gluten intolerance...but I was tested for Celiacs last yr and it was negative...I was even tested for Lyme and that was negative as well.
Avatar n tn I have been reading here on the net that wellbutrin does not have these side effects and told my doctor. Well he started me on 150 mg of WellbutrinSR twice a day for a total of 300 mg a day, and completely took me off the Effexor. This evening makes a total of 2 days since the switch, and I am experiencing wierd effects such as dizziness, lightheadedness, and a bit nausious. It is worse today than yesterday, I hope it does'nt get any worse than this.
