    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?
    I am desperate for some relief!
    Thanks

  • 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.
  • Rash, allergic reaction to claritin d 24 hrs
    Began taking Claritin 24 hours one day ago and immediaty broke out in hives.
  • 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.
