Avatar f tn I have back problems and the extra weight was brutal. Soon as as switched to Topamax (which has weight loss side effects) I lost the extra weight plus. Seizure meds are tough. They all have very extreme side effects. I've been on 4 different ones and I found that over time my body would get used of the side effects. Depakote was definately one of the better ones for me. Best of luck to you and your son.
Avatar n tn I HAD MEMOREY LOSS AND SEVERE WEIGHT GAIN. I did not get my memory back that was loss but as soon as i stopped taking it i had no memory loss and loss all the weight i had gained by taking Seruquel and then some.

Avatar f tn I remember being a puffy mute on lexapro and zyprexa. Not only was my usual 130 pound jewish frame elevated to 170 within months I felt suicidal for the first time in my life. I found a combo of wellbutrin/zoloft that seems to serve me well. After hearing my complaints of fatigue he added adderall. It does help but it's but you can develop tolerance fairly quickly and it's drawing on your body's essential vitality (chi) to do this.

Avatar f tn 1. Eating healthy: more whole food (fruits and vegetables), less processed food (cakes, chips, frozen food, etc). 2. Daily physical activities, i.e. walking for 10-20 minutes 3. Use daily journal to track calories in (meals and snacks) and calories out (exercise) 4. Set slow and steady weight loss goal, i.e. lose 1 to 2 pounds per week. 5. Get additional support, i.e. nutritionist, psychotherapist, exercise buddies or coaches.

Avatar n tn This pertains to my first question about the multiple depression medication. Do these cause memory loss as well, for I have told my partner a lot of things about myself in just a matter of 3 months and she doesn't seem to remember most of those things. She also seems apathetic about what and how her kids talk to her. I don't know if this is a result of this medication or not.

Avatar n tn I have been warned by pharmacists that Luvox has a much higher incidence of side effects, especially naseau and weight loss and panic , than Zoloft or lexapro. I have taken lexapro and Zoloft in the past and developed eye floaters and some hearing loss. . Does this mean I will develop a worse case of eye floaters , eyc., if I take Luvox? And naseau and losing weight? I cannot afford to be more naseau and to lose more weight as I have lost 45 pounds due to not eating .
Avatar m tn It sounds like you are well aware of the cycle you keep going through, of doing well on the medication and then stopping and ending up back in the hospital. Is it worth it? The side effects of the medication are a lot less troublesome to you and people who care about you, than that cycle. I encourage you to continue with the Zyprexa.
Avatar n tn The combination of the two sped up the serotonin neurtoxicty with really severe side effects that I am still dealing with two weeks after stopping the medication. (My arms and legs are numb, I have a head tick, loss of balance, muscle twitching, short term memory loss, mood changes.) The first thing I would do is to stop the cymbalta, if your wife hasn't already.
Avatar f tn Yes, there are some undesirable side effects of Reductil because it’s a prescription drug and every prescription drug has its share of both benefits and side effects. Some of the common side effects of this weight loss medication are nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. It can also cause some changes in taste sensations and tingling or numbness of hands or feet.
Avatar f tn Then your less serious but fairly common side effects include; weight gain, headaches, loss of libido (sex drive), breast tenderness, mood changes, nausea and spotting between periods. It can make depression worse if you already suffer from it. If you have migraines you may get them more frequently. The not having a period really isn't an issue as on the ordinary contraceptive pill you aren't having a real period anyway.
