From this study (4 months ago):
I have been taking suppressive therapy of valacyclovir 500 mg per day for the past 5 years. I have recently been reading about possible nervous side effects. I've been experiencing an increase in anxiety and depression during that same time and wonder how much they are connected. I also have more joint pain and back pain. I am especially sensitive immediately before my period. I am wondering if it would help to take 500 mg every other day, or 250 mg per day.
From this study (11 months ago):
I started out on 10 mg at night for IBS and to get more restful sleep. That was January 2012. Continued to take 10 mg nightly. Later in the year around October, I increased to 25 mg because the IBS didn't seem a lot better. (IBS, diarrhea)From October 2012 until now May 2013 I have gained 30 pounds. My doctor ask me why I was gaining weight. I eat the same as before, nothing has changed. Little did I know. I had NEVER read the side effects of this medicine. I was just happy to be able to eat without running to the bathroom. I have noticed in the last few months, a rapid heartbeat. So much so that it feels like the entire bed is shaking.
From this study (12 months ago):
Just added Welchol. Not sure if its working well with the amitriptylene
