Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Why would naproxen be chosen above other anti-inflammatory drugs ?
    I had Kidney stones Years ago and they were removed over 18 months slowly by monthly appointments for Lithotrypsy ( Ultrasound ) Over all this time I had a jj Stent tied off from inside my Kidney to inside my Bladder ( To keep Kidney from blocking again ) In the years since then I have sufferred intense pain in Kidney region and have ben told there are now cysts in my kidney. Occasionally these cysts burst and bleed thus blocking my urethra with clot.
  • I take klonopin and diltiazem (calcium channel blocker blood pressure medicine) and am concerned about side effects. my accupuncturist recommends the ashwagandha. anyone have any issues with this?
    I take these prescription medications but have been going to an accupuncturist since 2012. I have trouble sleeping at night without my clonazepam and take naps during the day and am having trouble losing weight. She thinks that my adrenal glands may be fatigued and told me to try something called Adrenal Response which contains Sensoril Ashwagandha. When I looked up Ashwaganda it said that it could interact with the Clonazepam or Klonopin and also with High blood pressure medication. I am a little concerned. I mentioned this to her and she said they both are metabolized by the liver and it should be ok to take it, just to take it an hour or more after I take the Clonazepam. Has anyone had any issues with interactions with their prescribed meds while taking Ashwagandha? I don't want to have to monitor my blood pressure because my blood pressure medication works good for me. Any help would be appreciated because I want to try it but I am a little scared too. Thanks, Crystal
  • Does coming off of viibryd while having the implanon affect your period?
    I've had my implanon for 2 and a half yrs,I also was put on viibryd about a year ago.
    After stopping my viibryd about 3 weeks ago I have yet to have a menstral cycle...
    Tho I should have. I haven taken a pregnancy test which came back negative.
    My period isn't always regular with the implanon but I've also never been this late until
    Now. I'm assuming it's being caused by me stopping the viibryd since I hadn't changed
    Anything else in my life. Plz help

  • Took buspirone once and got a blister
    Took Buspirone 5mg once and a few minutes later felt a bubble on my lip. The next morning I check and sure enough it's a blister on my top lip. Called a nurse and she said I had an allergic reaction.
  • Buspar doesn't help anxiety and causes anger (1 response)
    My child has severe anxiety disorder the physchotrist said he has every type of anxity he started taking buspar last year it hasn't helped his anxiety at all but it makes him severly angeryhtalked to his new dr and she said he is no longer going to be taking buspar thank God this medication should not be written for anxiety alone or wprescribed for anxiety it does not help at leat not my son it has made our life a nightmare.
  • Generalised anxiety relief for me
    It's been almost a year on Viibryd. I have not had the brain fog/lack of personality I had with Zoloft, I feel like myself and not a zombie. It was a slightly rough start the first two weeks of it due to some increased agitation and insomnia but at a snap of a finger that was gone. I'm on a mild dose of 10mg which seems to do the trick. I do however notice quickly if I miss a dose. There have been no sexual side effets and as far as weight gain... there's been a some but I was also post-baby, tubes tied and started on birth control due to hormone issues so i'm not sure I can blame it on the Viibryd. I take the 20mg pill and cut it in half but i've taken the 10mg and i almost feel like the 10mg (no cutting of it) works better... I'm overall a happy camper with this drug.

    Dr.prescribed Buspar for the severe anxiety I was experiencing with my PMDD. I took 1 10mg tablet.i did not have any effect from this drug , so I took another 10mg tab. And the started having sharp chest pains. Has this happened to anyone else?
  • Buspirone and biotin
    I took only 1 10,000Mcg biotin capsule and 1 buspirone (sorry to not have dosage) at roughly the sAme time (aprx 2pm).later that night, I felt severe anxiety and a giant ” knot” in my chest causing difficulty breathing. Few hours passed then I began to feel a sharp throbbing pain in left side and lower abdomen almost coming in waves leading up to violent vomiting. Never again.
