You may be interested at these reviews (Write a review):

  • A life of depression and fatigue
    1) Family history of depression, 2) Diagnosed depression 1964-not treated until 1973, 3) Worked in medical field 35 years, 4) Emergency on-call 24/7, 5) Hospital 15 times major depression, 6) Tried nearly all MAOI, TCA, SSRI, SNRI, and ECT. 7) 100% Disability in 1998 for depression. Now at age 70 I have dysthymia, chronic fatigue, COPD, and PTSD. My recommendation to younger people - do not over stress,
    do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.
  • Lamictal and eyes being gooey.
    While taking this medication, I experienced eye goo, sometimes stringing across my eye. Occasionally it would dry overnight and becoming crusty. I took this medication for over a year and the doctor kept prescribing me medication for conjunctivitis.

    When I finally stopped taking this medication, the eye irritation went away.
  • Lamotrigine and indigestion (1 response)
    I started taking Lamotrigine about a month or two ago. I think it has alleviated my depression somewhat but it has also been causing me pretty severe gastric and intestinal problems. I wake up every morning with indigestion/ and pressure in my stomach, I also have constipation I have gone several days with very little to no movement, before I started taking Lamorigine I did not have either of these issues.
  • Severe night sweats and hot flashes with cymbalta?
    I am 24 years old and I have been having severe night sweats for about the last 2 and a half years. I have been on Cymbalta for about 4 and a half years. These night sweats are so severe that I typically wake up 2-4 times a night drenched in sweat where I have to change the sheets, get a new blanket, and change my clothes. This is usually happening to me about 4-6 times a week. I am not sure if this is related to Cymbalta or not. I have gone to my doctor and had all of the tests done, everything is normal. All of the doctors that I have gone to have been clueless as to what could be causing my night sweats. I am thinking of trying to change my Cymbalta to a different medication, however as I am sure most know, it is a pain in the butt to try and find a good antidepressant that works with your body and any other medications you may be taking. The only thing I am going to try before this is using Menopause medications vitamins. I have found a vitamin/supplement that is supposed to help with night sweats and hot flashes and does not have any hormones in it. I have only been taking it for 2 nights, so no results yet. I hope this works so I dont have to change off of Cymbalta.
  • Bone pain localized to poison ivy rash
    I am having a moderate to strong reaction to poison ivy exposure. I have a localized rash with blistering, swelling and inflammation similar to cellulitis. The rash has been progressing for about a week. The blisters are not weeping or oozing. The area is cleaned daily with neem oil soap. Coincident with the rash, I have a persistent ache/pain in my lower forearm, wrist and hand that is responding weakly to Aleve and pretty much unresponsive to acetaminophen.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I am 20 years old and I have been taking 60mg of Methadose liquid through a Opioid Treatment Program since late August of 2012 (gradually increased from 30-60 over the course of 3 months until November, then maintaining at 60mg since.) I have all the common symptoms such as, excessive sweating, weight gain/increased appetite, and fatigue. Symptoms of abnormal, mostly involuntary muscle/body movements have gradually increased, in frequency and severity. However, 3 months prior to starting Methadone treatment I was using heroin intravenously and had the same movement symptoms, but were far less severe. The symptoms come on about 2 hours or so after my dose, right when I can feel the methadone reach its peak. It continues all the way until the night time when I go to bed. Once I awaken in the morning I rarely experience the [annoying and embarrassing] constant movements. I take the methadone 7 days a week, and is starting to become more severe and also interacting with my daily tasks; i.e. Driving (the worst at all times), causing me to swerve and lose focus on the road, when I'm sitting, standing, on the computer as we speak, and about almost all the time throughout the day. Very little do I try to control it, because it continues all day, and if I do try to keep it under control, I have to focus very hard. I am mostly moving my upper body; moving my neck in all directions, my shoulders as well in all directions (which has caused me to pull muscles several times in the past couple months), rotating my wrists in circles, front and back, my back (upper and lower), along with my hips, as well as extending my arms outward, turning them from front to back (forearms), this is all done with strong force/penetration, (constricting) "hard" stretches. When I do try and concentrate on the movements (on my upper body), my legs and thighs feel the strongest need to constrict and move inward and out
