Lexapro dosage strengths

Common Questions and Answers about Lexapro dosage strengths


Avatar n tn When estrogen levels are constant - it doesn't affect thyroid levels BUT *IF* for example you started taking birth control pill or estrogen replacement for menopause then you may need increased dosage of thyroid. AND *IF* your estrogen levels drop naturally due to menopause it is possible you won't require as much thyroid hormone. Have you been losing weight recently before this all came up?

Avatar f tn Xanax is made in strengths of .25, .5, 1, and 2 mg. A common dosage for a person taking Xanax would be .5mg's 3 to 4 times per day. I was taking 2 2mg pills (or bars) per day or 4mg's total which is a ton and it took years to get my tolerance that high!!
Avatar n tn I read your post and you said you are a high risk of breast cancer. I been trying to gether up as much info as I can on a condition.

Avatar m tn I thought Lexapro would do the opposite of the Xanax, which is to calm you and your system down. Did you use one to counteract the other? I'm using the Xanax very specifically to counteract the stress effects of the riba while I eat.

Still others say Xanax is stronger. It's maddening to have so many different opinions. But, to my mind, the reputable sources say that they are roughly equal. So, that's where I am putting my money.

Was talking to a friend of mine who knows something about such things, and he told me his teaching hospital employs another school of thought on these matters...
Avatar n tn - this is obviously a chemistry term but i am not sure what it means scientifically- what i do know is from my own experience- i was placed on the patch for 3-4 months (i still have the old box that i was copying info from) the patch was taken away from me coz of an errant random urine test in which the doc found something else that wasnt supposed to be there- anyway- the fentanyl is supposed to be a real strong narcotic- you wear the patch for 72 hours or 3 days- the boxes come in packages of 5
Avatar n tn My guess is that my dosage is off. Right after the surgery they put me on the same dosage of thyroid replacement medicine (150 mcg) I was on prior to the surgery. I have 3 weeks to go until I have my levels tested. So, I am 31 and struggling with all the chemical changes in my body. Sometime I feel as if I am going crazy with all the emotional lows I have. I should be elated that I am cancer free and able to move on with life as normal. But I do not feel that way. Help.
86075 tn?1238118691 I did want to highlight the question of whether a fibroscan can pick-up on different conditions of the liver in different areas, as I believe this is a very significant issue - both in the context of understanding the pregression and regression of disease, as well as the relative strengths of different diagnotic tools and techniques. Have a great day. Spring is on the rise. I'm going to leave this topic alone as it seems to be generating some unintended friction.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed percocets (5/325) about 1 1/2 years ago for chronic back pain (scoliosis mainly). I took them as prescribed for a while and then started increasing the dosage until I was taking upwards of 14 a day (I could take 8 per my script). I decided about a week ago to stop. I tapered down to 8 a day, I guess that's not great but I just can't have them around me without taking them. I have been without for 36 hours and of course I feel like hell in a hand basket.
Avatar m tn Other work still needs to be done but unable to afford it presently. However leading up to the tooth being pulled i was on heavy dosage of amoxicillian (875mg). currently though i am not taking any medication except Excedrin for occasional headaches. We recently had a exterminator spray our new apartment for tiny, ant infestation. So far it appears the ants are gone. We live in an apartment on ground floor. I sleep on a leather couch and sit in a leather office chair at my computer.
