Avatar f tn It should take a few weeks before you will start to feel the positive effects of the med, whereas the side effects should start to resolve in about 1-2 weeks. Keep us updated...hope you get to feeling better soon!
Avatar n tn Not sure of your exact question regarding weight loss. I do know that sometimes Wellbutrin helps in cases where people have cravings and/or addictions (to gambling for example and also nicotine I think)...and I also know that people do not experience the same problems regarding weight loss as they do with the other SSRI anti-depressants such as Zoloft and the like.
Avatar n tn Between this blog and the Lexapro blog, I feel I can now get some control over these side effects! My doctor increased my Wellbutrin from 300mg. to 450 mg. in the morning and added 10 mg of Lexapro to take at night. It's only been barely two weeks and I've gained weight around my middle (the Lexapro blog) and I've always had a flat stomach. Plus I've started to get headaches and feel funny in my chest. My blood pressure medication had to be doubled. All this in two weeks!
Avatar n tn ) Last week, I read up on some of the potential side effects of taking Effexor, and blurry vision is one of them. So, I'm on my 3rd day of coming off the drug. I read that the Amino Acid, L-Theanine, which is an ingredient in Green Tea, works to keep the brain in an "Alpha Wave" state. This state is, Awake, but Relaxed. The other waves are as follows: Delta Wave = Deep Sleep, Theta Wave = Light Sleep, and Beta Wave = Awake, Excited.
Avatar n tn I haven't experienced very many of the other side effects people have talked about except bouts of depression and trouble sleeping, the anxiety is the big thing and I'm calling my doctor in the morning to talk about getting off this pill...usually I do not take the time to share something like this but I felt like I should to let people know you are not alone, and I'm thankful to hear that my feelings about this pill might be accurate..
Avatar n tn I started Wellbutrin about a month and a half ago. My first period came early on a Friday, when I shouldn't have gotten it until either Sun, Mon, or Tues. I am also on Necon, and my cycle is never off. This month, I had kind of the beginning and end stuff, just barely, a little bit of cramping, but no period. I took 2 pregnancy tests, and both were negative. I also feel more weepy since I changed from Lexapro to Wellbutrin - I'm not depressed at all, but everything makes me cry.
656309 tn?1224493459 The elements that are taken away had a lot of side effects. This more purified form (called Wellbutrin) has little, if any, side effects for most people and is really safe to use. It DID have one very bad side effect for me though. I was already having trouble sleeping (due to anxiety caused by a very stressful job environment) and the Wellbutrin gave me SO much energy that I couldn't sleep at nights. (Needless to say, I took it first thing in the morning.
Avatar f tn Just to let you know, I take Lithium, Lexapro, Wellbutrin XL, Ativan and Ambien CR. I figured I would do the research myself and present the info to my doc. Open for any helpful info. Thanks!!
Avatar f tn I went from 50 to 75mg, 5 weeks later and 75 to 100mg 4 weeks later, working up slowly does help with the side effects. Over time I have found most of my side effects subside: I take it for nerve pain and complex migraines. I did experience weight loss but not loss so far, but I do take daily vitamin and extra supplements plus making sure I drink Ensure and a V-8 everyday to keep myself health. I didn’t need to lose any weight.
Avatar n tn Then, when I look at the opening, it has what looks like grooves in the side of the opening that appear to start at the tip of my urethra and go back into the penis, paralell to my shaft. Looks like some sort of inflammatory process, but my urinalysis showed no leukocytes, which I thought were an inflammation marker. Ugh. There's gotta be some sort of cure. I also have noticed that I have cysts in some of my tubes in the groin area. Maybe I have some sort of blockage.
Avatar m tn It is not the cause of it. Stress and adrenaline are normal effects in the body, but the result of whatever caused this injury shows up now, with this as its trigger in part. Before this condition existed, it simply didn't exert change on the penis that much before, so nobody noticed it that much. I think everyone can probably relate to stress causing an erectile issue, but it is usually short-lived...not persistent. 3.
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar f tn There are some good antidepressants, one of which is Wellbutrin XL which has the least amount of side effects. As for the Yaz, , it would be in your best interest to get off this type of birth control pills. Let your doctor start you on antidepressants, get that stabilized and then deal with the birth control issue. Personally, I would avoid all kinds of birth control pills because many of them have side effects like stroke, heart attack and many other really dangerous side effects.
Avatar n tn For the last three months I have taken Xanax (.50mg when needed) and 150mg of Wellbutrin XL. The Xanax has really helped me feel calm in most situations but I can't take this drug on a daily basis and i don't want to because of the problems it can cause. I also think my anxiety is worse when I stop taking it. The Wellbutrin has helped get me out of the sluggish mood I was feeling. I tried 300mg but it was way too strong, besides I'm not depressed.
Avatar f tn My doctor said I have GAD and perscribed me Wellbutrin XL. I have been on it for a month, doesn't seem to be helping. I have also tried Paxil, but it gave me bad side effects. Ok, that is the basic background. My question is, for a long time, but more severely recently, I have had an extremely sensitive gag reflex and causes me to gag/dry heave from almost anything.
Avatar m tn We even tried bupropion xl, with 5mg of lexapro, trying to reduce or avoid sexual side effect, but no luck with that. Ssri, even ivery small dose, will still cause sexual side effect. As of right now, the best combo and dose, that seems to be working is what i sade above. Yes, i know about the addiction of the clonazapen , if i'm not addicted already, i'm sure i'm not far from there. But soon, i will see another specialist, since my insurance has changed this year.
102999 tn?1326859384 could any of these be aggravating my PACs? Thoughts?
Avatar n tn I'm so glad to be alive in an age where I can take medication instead of being locked up in some cold mental asylum. Don't let the laundry list of possible side effects get the better of you. As I'm sure you know, drug companies are under legal obligation to print every possible scenario under the sun. Be smart and follow your doctor's orders and LIVE.
Avatar n tn I switched to Effexor XR about a year ago because Zoloft was not doing enough for my depression. I was and still am taking Wellbutrin XL to combat the sexual side effects. Shortly after I started Effexor my doctor also put me on Seroquel. So I have been on these 3 drugs for the past year. Last month my doctor suggested I up my dosage of Effexor from 150mg to 225 mg.
Avatar n tn I decided to try Wellbutrin XL even though I was wary of anxiety side effects. WOW! What a difference! Not only am I starting to drop the weight, but my libido has gone through the roof (sorry if that was too much information!)! I have been on SSRI's for so long that I forgot how bad my libido really was! I am also taking Topamax to help with mood stabilization (since the Wellbutrin didn't seem to be enough for me).
329950 tn?1194801117 In correct dosage Ritalin affects everyone the same, the dose that works for one person is not the dose for another in all cases, this is why Ritalin is a street drug now BTW because it works on non ADHD people, and yes higher doses slow people down - normally ADHD but non ADHD people as well, its a type of amphetamine to boot and its dangerous with side effects including heart attacks in children - its under review in a number of countries now who want to restrict its usage and its only being
544292 tn?1268886268 LOL Welcome and I hope you will make yourself at home. Snuggle down, get comfy. There's a lot of information and experience here with getting off Tramadol. It's not impossible, lots of peeps here now living Tram Free Lives! Love & Healing!
168348 tn?1379360675 Glucose was 100 (normal). These were taken in June. I watch my diet, eat lots of fiber, drink lots of fluids, take supplements to help my heart--having these elevated shocked me. (I'm 5'3", 138 lbs) Per issues with decreased libido and arousal, someone told me to check into my prescriptive meds and see about side effects and drug interactions. Three of them that I'm on apparently are bad for kidney stone formation and other stuff, HydrochloroTHIAZIDE, Metoprolol and Spironolactone.
Avatar n tn I also get the weird usual side effects of trouble with word finding and what not but I kind of get a kick out of those side effects, for the most part I really like Topamax, it has really helped me as long as I am careful with it but it can really pack a wallop.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Friends! Welcome to part 27 of our Tramadol & Ultram Recovery Group! So happy that you found us here. When I started journaling a long time ago, I could barely find anyone to help me. Not that I am happy that there's so many of us. But you know what I mean. It is easier if you have friends. Make yourself Comfy!
Avatar f tn I also take Wellbutrin XL and the combination seems to help, somewhat. I am in such pain at times, that I have to go to the Hospital and get shots to get knocked out. If you find out anything. . .please let me know. I live with the pain, as well. I normally have a migraine or extremely "bad" headache at least 4 times a week. And during one, I am unable to function. It totally puts me down. There are times that I try to work thru it, but it just makes me so-o-o-o sick!
Avatar n tn tingling in the hands, fingers, feet, and toes, combined with changing my birth control at the same time I started Topomax, the depression was a suicide cocktail, a severe lack of concentration (I actually failed my Psychology class), not to mention after driving to the same place for three weeks in a row, I still had to ask the other person in the car how to get there: DOPAMAX? I’d say so!
Avatar n tn She checked her palm pilot for side effects and said there was not data showing shortness of breath as a side effect and ended up sending me home with a prescription for Effexor XR 150mg. I went home and typed in EFFEXOR and shortness of breath and thank God I did because there were many sites addressing this issue. I called my MHFNP back on Friday to try and advise her I saw this on the internet.
