Avatar n tn Attention anyone taking Cymbalta...PLEASE read about the side effects and the horrible withdrawl symptoms. It turned me into a zoombie then it took over a year to withdraw from. It is worse than anything I have ever experienced in my whole life. I am not going to be a guinea pig for any more of these new drugs, I'll just stick with vicodin.
Avatar n tn She was like a guinea pig and now, 8 years after, she is living with side effects that have never gone : hypotension (around 8), fainding every day, unbearable headaches, kidney pyelonephritis every months, and an exhausting fatigue that keep her in her bed sometimes several days, where she can hardly eat alone. Before that, she was so full of life, making car races, flying planes, being a model for photographes, and photographer herself.
Avatar n tn Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy? Also, i was told if i do want to get pregnant, i should wait 6 months after taking the birth control pills. is that true?
Avatar n tn Had to do it cuz I gained 30lbs in 3 yrs, while working out 5 x per week. Doc says Cymbalta doesn't have the same side effect. Hmmm. Seem to read mixed reviews about that. Have lost, through exercise and calorie counting, 14 lbs in the past month. Feeling kind of sad and a bit anxious, however. Am trying a series of homeopathic products. Read it takes about 80 days till they make their effects known, so I am trying to hold out till the end of August and will re-evaluate then.
Avatar n tn No I'm not crazy just been on Cymbalta.. Please google cymbalta withdrawal and see what you can find.. interesting reading on cymbalta sucks if you use that in google as well.. I'm down to half my dose and still unable to get off 48 hours without feeling VERY sick.. I started taking if because of neck pain and it was great for about 3 or so months but I realized I didn't feel sad OR happy.. so I decided to go off of it a few months later..
Avatar n tn There is a product called Amoryn . It works for me , used to take it . No side effects or withdrawl .
Avatar m tn I did Extacy when I was 18 years old about 3 times. I never experienced any side effects from it. I am now 26 years old. For some stupid reason which I greatly regret. I took an Extacy pill September 28th. I had a great time on it. The next day I felt fine but about 2 weeks later I was feeling very high anxiety & I am suffering from depression. I also was having mood swings.
5265383 tn?1483811956 It worked for a couple of months but have just had to increase the dose so I can sleep through them. Sigh. I also get side effects from the Cymbalta but so far, they are not a deal breaker. It seems as soon as I get accustomed to the side effects at a certain dosage, the med also stops being effective. Grrrr. Wonder how long this will last???
875863 tn?1271606985 Prozac, Cymbalta, Prednisone,Prednisonal, Darvocet, Ultram. They all bite. They ALL have side-effects that suck. Oh, and then there's the anti-inflamitories, everything affects the liver. But don't you dare drink alcohol. I'm at the point I want a labotomy. I don't have enough electrodes going through me. There's a pill for that, right? Or a shot. Just venting again. Makes sense though, doesn't it?
Avatar f tn I really felt after 6 weeks without drugs, that I might relapse (I tried before) but it was all part of the withdrawal and mimicked the original illness. I am doing great, feel great and life is good. I am just so happy to be away from the side effects and I am managing my life really well. I have a good job and four kids, alone and we are having a really good Holiday Season. Do not give up, you can recover.
Avatar f tn Am on Cymbalta and Lamictal, Klonopin but cannot up dose on those due to intolerable side effects.
Avatar m tn stress which is my main staple, and coffee is wiping me out no hubby no bf to help balance out my budget so i am working non stop so my Dr said to slow down, blood test are normal yet my body says not, i am avoiding RX at all costs, too many bad side effects for my liking tried savelle 1 dose was enough NO WAY, lyrica NOPE cymbalta NO taking DHEA natural hormone estrogene testoserone read about it used for alot medical issues..
685623 tn?1283485207 Additionally, female pets that are intact (not spayed), are at an increased risk of side effects from estrogen poisoning. 7) ACE Inhibitors (e.g. Zestril, Altace) Angiotensin-converting enzyme (or “ACE”) inhibitors are commonly used to treat high blood pressure in people and, occasionally, pets. Though overdoses can cause low blood pressure, dizziness and weakness, this category of medication is typically quite safe.
698232 tn?1229600061 I was seeing at the time is the same one that gave me Cymbalta for my anxiety, and the Cymbalta gave me headaches BAD and he said basically there were no other meds available for anxiety. Nutcase he is. I know he has the degree, but come on..LOL.. All my life I have also suffered with restless leg syndrome. I can usually take a hot bath, throw on a lil absorbine jr and be fine. However the last 3-4 months have been HELL.!!. I mean pain that had me on my knees crying.
Avatar n tn The full informaton as regards side effects as well as beneficial effects is on the medication webste and you can discuss that with your psychiatrist. If things arent working out with them you can seek a second opinion but its essential to always ask first and follow specific directions betofre changng the dose of any medication.
Avatar f tn I tried many things for pain that simply did not work at all end or the side effects very disturbing. Just after Christmas my Dad brought me to his place in Florida hoping that the warmth, change etc. would help. While there a met a Dr. who also stayed in the same complex for the winter and was an aquaintance of my Father's. A very long story short, he helpled my prescribing me Oxy Contin. Within a few weeks, the pain was managed very well and I became my old self again.
Avatar f tn Can you take herbs and the lyrica at same time, often drugs and herbs interact causing bad side effects.
606078 tn?1247268153 Well, so far so good. Although I've only taken 2 doses of the Savella, I haven't felt any of the side effects. If it's going to make me sick it would have done so by now. It would truely be a blessing if the Savella works. I want to get off of most of the scripts that my doctors have me on, I need to know how badly my body does hurt and that way we'll know which direction we need to take.
1283286 tn?1312915566 Lisa Shives’ Sleep Better Blog. A frazzled, 45-year-old woman came into my office the other day complaining of longstanding, intermittent bouts of insomnia. “The frustrating thing is I watch my husband take his melatonin and ‘poof’ it’s like the sandman flew in through the window and sprinkled sand in his eyes. He is out. Me? Nothing. I lie there for hours even if I take two or three pills.” I hear this lot. Melatonin works remarkably well for some people and has no affect on others.
Avatar n tn These antidepressants have been proven to have pain-relieving effects. Desipramine is considered to have the lowest side effects profile of the TCAs. See pages 27 and 28 from ACPA Medications & Chronic Pain, Supplement 2007, http://www.theacpa.org/documents/ACPA%20Meds%202007%20Final.
Avatar m tn I get daily migraine tension type headaches, burning pricking numbness pain, stiffness and bad muscle spasms. Amitriptyline, cymbalta, baclofen gave me bad side effects. I m hoping someone can share their success with other drugs. I m willing to give it a try. Thks in advance!
Avatar m tn In my humble opinion, you are take a HUGE jump in pain meds to go from a Hydrocodone (Vicoprofen = hydrocodone + ibuprofen) to Dilaudid (HydroMorphone, a derivative of morphine.). Also, you didn't exactly say but if you are taking Vicoprofen every 2 hours, every day or whatever amount with every day being the key, you are already opiate dependent. Dilaudid also has a short half life and all the prescriptions I have seen say take as needed every 2-3 hours.
485259 tn?1519050626 All I can say at this point is that every day is trial and error, this thing comes and goes, some days are better than others, and we have to learn to tame the beast so to speak, find out what makes it worse and avoid it, find out what makes it better and do that too. Decide which drugs are worth the side effects. Find alternatives. It's a frustrating game. Especially if you have other health issues as you do Kosk and the added challenge of minimal health facilities.
1264863 tn?1391121793 Actually, the instructions/precautions tell you that if you must remove the hair on the area you're going to put the patch, it should only be clipped, and not shaved (I'm presuming for that reason of irritating the skin) I've not really heard of anyone having a large weight gain on the patches. I just looked up the side effects again on them and it's not listed as a side efect,but as you know, we all can react differently to medications.
Avatar n tn As much as I want to lose weight, the list of side effects for Topomax scares me. My current med, Effexor/Lithium has side effects such as weight gain, constipation, tremor, etc. While I hate being fat, blurry vision ans brain fog don't appeal to me either. Of course there are also the risks of diabetes and heart disease from being overweight too. I'm having a very hard time deciding about this. Any advice is welcome.
605458 tn?1539232408 im too lazy to walk over to my dresser and check the dosage, but its low its about 100 mg at night. I have no side effects that i can see...the pills make me a little high or whatever, but im on alot of them so i cant tell anymore. But seroquel i guess has different reaction. My best friend was on it too and she told me that her legs would hold still that they were shaking all the time.. i was on respiridone (sp?
544292 tn?1268886268 Not my fault that I had to snicker at the last line there because every time I talked to my Doctors (plural) about medications and side effects they told me that Tramadol was NOT the problem. Then there was usually another drug put on top of that Tramadol. And they told me to take more. I always thought it was the other drug, not the Tramadol. Yeah. I was wrong. It makes me very angry that these Doctors know and aren't telling people. I don't believe that they are ignorant.
401786 tn?1309155634 All sorts of lung illnesses are listed in med texts as possible side effects of withdrawl, so I could very well have that. I have a lot of med info., but it's another thing entirely to be going through something that's mainly subjective yourself. Everyone's experience can be so different too, and I need that info/feedback to let me know what other's experienced to know what I may experience and to give me hope and strength to get through this.
