    I have had GA for 2 years now, however it has gotten progressively worse the past 6 months. It has now spread over 80% of my body. I am seeing an Endocrinologist next week as I believe my thyroid may play a big role in this. My Regular Dr. suggested I speak to Endocrinologist about a drug called Methotrexate. Has anyone taken this for GA, and if so, can you please tell me if it is working, side effects etc?

  • Joint pain/depression/thinking unclear
    I've been on Effexor 75mg. for 8 month's and recently have been decreasing this amount so that I can safely stop taking this all together. I believe that in the beginning month's of taking it, it had helped with my hot-flashes and anxiety. A few month's ago I've noticed that it isn't helping my anxiety but has added a few more problem's as well. I now have bad swelling in my finger's with bumps on top of the joints. Also, crying, depressing, and lack of interest. The muscle's in my arm's ache. I can't concentrate at work which is very embarrassing.
    My plan is to decrease amount of this medicine and go completley off. So far, I've been taking 37.5 mg. for a week and seem's withdrawal symptom's are not so bad as of yet. Hopefully, in a few more wks. I will be completely off of it.
    I have decided to invest in Herbal remedie's instead. I have never had a problem with all-natural before. As for the hot flashes I will use Black Cohosh. I will also use natural herb's for anxiety. I am really doing my research. I believe that the all-natural route is better than the synthetic med. because there are way too many bad side effect's.
    Another thing I didn't mention was the weight gain from Effexor. I sure hope I lose the weight that I gained! That also add's to the depression.
  • Effexor lets me down after 20 years
    I dropped Effexor for 5 months. Had a depressive episode and went back to it. It blew me away this time around. I'd lost 20 pounds and was exercising a lot. I went back to 37 g and was doing okay although I hated taking it. The side effects: food tasting bad, no sleep, and no sexual desire was making me sad. Anyway, I accidently took 150 and it was very hard. I felt like a zombie and couldn't eat. The next day I took 37 and was okay. I have experienced a lot of anxiety and that seemed to help a little. The next day I took 75, and went hypomaniac. I had to walk around the block 5 times to calm down. The next day without anything I had to take a spinning class, swim, and lift weights to calm down. Followed was 3 horrible days of drug withdrawal. Today, I've been hanging in for most of the day although I had some bad anxiety this morning and afternoon. I am sitting her forcing myself to watch TV. My life has been a living hell for 3 weeks, and all the doctor told me to do is take more of this poison, but at a lower dose.
  • Fructose malabsorption symptoms become wore with effexor
    I took Venlafaxine for several years. During that time I was diagnosed with Fructose Malabsorption (FM), something I suspect that I have had for years already. For a period of two years I switched medication and took some other SSRIs instead of Venlafaxine and then returned to Venlafaxine and found that my FM symptoms right away increased/returned. When I came off of Venlafaxine I noticed that my FM symptoms became easier to manage but going back on Venlafaxine has confirm that it does indeed cause greater IBS and FM symptoms.
  • Effexor near death experience
    In 1999 I was prescribed 75mg time release Effexor. I took one pill and 4 hours later I became dizzy and it felt like a cold patch in the middle of my head. I ckecked my eyes as i started seeing too much light, my puples were dilated, all black. I managed to get up stairs and asked my mom to get me to hospital. I passed out, and as crazy as it sounds I had a vision of my nana. I knew I was gone.she told me to wake up. I wasn't breathing. I could hear my mom talking on the phone to 911saying I had no pulse. (She is an RN) the ambulance came and they couldn't find my blood pressure. I couldn't see very well. The ER doctors said to continue taking the meds and sent my home. I stopped taking the Effexor. I had the side effects for many months. I get aura migraines now and have extreme sensitivity to other drugs.
  • Turmeric and atrial fabrillation
    I am a "health nut" who has always avoided any and all tobacco and alcohol, am on no medication, am on a reasonably purer diet (organic foods etc.,) and daily take and assortment of vitamins, minerals and a few herbs like garlic and saw palmetto. I had recently began taking therapeutic doses of Turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties in both powered and capsule forms--(powdered form for approximately two to three weeks--one teaspoon twice daily; capsule form for approximately three or four days--one capsule twice daily.) On the day in question, I took one teaspoon of the powered form of turmeric with a late lunch and left off the capsule form. I jog/walk two or three miles intermittently and roughly twice a week. Into the second mile of a three mile jog/walk that night,I experienced an unusual weakness and fatigue, stopped after the second mile and pulse was over 200. I had sweated a lot and after resting a while, I walked the third mile back home and showered. I was unable to sleep. My heart was in atrial fibrillation which was diagnosed hours later at the local Medical Center ER. Heart rate was fluctuating in the 150-170 range and was brought down to 100-120 range with I.V. medication but stayed in that range. Exactly 11 hours after its beginning and with virtually no sleep for over 24 hours and after drinking only water but with very little food and no vitamin or Turmeric consumption, immediately after standing up for the third time in four or five hours to go to the bathroom, I suddenly converted back to a normal heart rate which is 60 to 70 beats a minute and was released from the medical center seven hours later. Plan to stop taking all forms of Turmeric.
