  • Has anyone been prescribed methotrexate for granuloma annulare?
    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
  • How common is erectile dysfunction with effexor and adderall and how can it be combatted? (3 answers)
    I take both Adderall and effexor to treat ADHD and anxiety/depression. I have taken both for years but Adderall longer. My ability to hold an erection and to experience an orgasm has decreased.
  • Why are my medications making me look bloated (1 answer)
    In 2008 I started the Suboxone Program. I Started on 16mg since then, I have been up and down on my doses. I was put on this drug as a result of my addiction to to over the counter opiates. I was also prescribed Seroquel, I stopped taking the Seroquel it wasn't helping me in anyway and I gained so much weight. In 2012 I was diagnosed with Bipolar and my psychiatrist put me on 300Mg Effexor, 20Mg Olanzipane and 1000Mg of Valpro. After 10 months I was able to stop taking the Valpro and Olanzipane. No matter how much weight I lose, I always appear so puffy and bloated in the face, especially under my eyes, they look like I haven't slept for weeks. I have very low self esteem as it is, this is making me feel miserable. I should also mention, that i got down 1MG of the Suboxone, after various stresses I went right back up to 18Mg. I have finally started to turn a corner and I am now reducing my dose at the right pace. It would make me feel so much better if I knew if even one more person was having this experience. Any feedback would be so appreciated. I send this with love from Australia :)

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

  • Long-term use of risperidone and antidepressants
    I have been using Risperdal and antidepressants for 14 years for bipolar disorder. Last month I was diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency and progesterone deficiency. My cholesterol suddenly became high, I was tired all the time and more symptoms relating to my eventual diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency and progesterone deficiency. I must also say that at the same time of starting treatment I stopped using birth control pills. I feel there needs to be caution taken in all of these drugs. They seem to have a severe effect on hormone balance in the body.
  • I wish i had never taken ambien
    Ambien was prescribed after my sleep study showed severe sleep latency and awakening. In the five hours I slept I woke 85 times and had only 5 minutes of deep sleep. However, the doctors couldn't make a recommendation because they could detect no cause for the poor sleep pattern. My doctor offered Ambien and since I had obviously needed the help sleeping I took it. For the next 10 years I suffered incredible depression. For example I remember laying in bed staring at the ceiling with tears rolling into my ears but I was too tired to wipe them away and realizing that I wanted to die so badly but there was no way I could have done anything about it. The worst effects were the loss of consciousness and the verbal abuse that I heaped on my husband and son. An example of each : I actually had sex with my husband that I could not remember amd hundreds of other actions and discussions. My husband started asking every morning what I remembered of the night before. He could usually tell when I was Ambien-awake (his name for it) he said my eyes would get glassy and my voice cadence would be off. Unfortunately my oldest son was going from infant to 8 years old at this time and any ifraction or even without provocation I would scream horrible things in his face. I don't remember much of it but what I do remember causes me enormous regret. He went from a happy and active toddler to a terrified amd anxious pre-teen. We are still working through the effects of this behavior. Finally, after a surprise pregnancy (see example above) My baby was placed in NICU and I stayed at the Ronald McDonald House and my son and husband visited when they could. Somehow my Ambien prescription was stopped and so I began going through withdrawal but I had no idea what was going on. My vision became so blurred thqt I couldn't identify items unless they were very large and then only by colors. When I visited my son those several days in the NICU I couldn't walk straight and would try to aim myself toward my goal until I hit a wall and I would correct course. These things didn't bother me at all but the nurses in the NICU were with me nearly the entire day because they were afraid I would have a stroke or who knew. Finally, after discussing these symptoms we decided to gradually stop the medication. Thankfully, i didn't have any withdrawal symptoms then. I did feel like an incredibly heavy and black blanket had been lifted away. Ever since I have had very little trouble with depression despite the continuation of sleep disturbance and pain. On a scale from one to 10 for depression with 10 being committing suicide I think my 10 years on the medicine was probably an 8.5 (I desperately wanted to die) and since stopping the medication I don't think it has gone above a 4 and is usually a 2 or 3. I will spend the rest of my life trying to repair the damage my verbal abuse caused my oldest son and my husband. For 10 years they lived in fear of my rages if I had a bad episode with Ambien.
  • My ex-boyfriend's effexor effects (1 response)
    In my fifth year of living with my ex-boyfriend, he began taking Effexor and soon developed urinary incontinence, kidney failure and nightmares or night terrors so severe that he frequently screamed for prolonged periods, flailed and threw punches in his sleep. Upon ceasing to take Effexor, his sleep returned to normal. His kidneys also recovered, and he regained the ability to control urination. About a year after that, he was arrested for downloading child pornography, and I haven't spoken to him since. I'm not suggesting that Effexor caused him to become a pedophile, but it has been noted to produce personality changes in some users. It would be hard to ascertain whether any or all of these side effects resulted from the drug, but I would NEVER take it or allow anyone I cared about to do so. He had never exhibited any such symptoms before taking it, and I feel it ruined his life on many levels.
  • Michael my son died as a result of kolopin & ambien (5 responses)
    My beautiful son to whom I depended upon took his Life by suicide on July 16, 2013. He had been struggling with a sleep disorder. It seemed to begin in his last year of high school 2010. Mike was very strong in mind and in body. He became a certified personal trainer. He encouraged everyone around him and all of his clients. How can someone so strong be so weak?
    He had been heavily medicated by a sleep doctor, for years this doctor gave him different medicines and he began to show other heath impairments..I could not see so many things that are very clear to me now, I never saw the effect the drugs had on him. he was growing more tired and withdrawn. He knew so much about medicines that I thought he knew what was happening he and I both trusted the doctors. With each new problem that occurred there was always a new drug to try and along with it a new set of side effects. A new doctor was added to his care and this doctor right away gave an RX for Kolopin. He was already taking Ambien and the two dont seem to play well together. Mean while he was growing sicker and sicker. We constantly were going for this test or that test, never once did the sleep doctor ever think that the drugs being given were the cause of all of his distress.
    At one point he was unable to keep food down and was throwing up every day. More test that always revealed the same result. No problem found. The visits to the sleep doctor were the same as well his condition was worsening and chronic. and yet never once did the sleep doctor ever give the drugs a second thought. The known side effects for both of these drugs were suicide for ages between 16 to 22. Until his death I never read about any of the products he was on.
    On July 16, 2013 the day began with Mike not sleeping, he seemed angry, exhausted. he was getting ready to help us out at our office. Once there it seemed like nothing went his way and at one point got into argument with his dad, told me he hated him and decided to go into his office to talk to him. He began to cry, I had to leave for an appointment and I waved to him through a window. I could see him crying. He got up and just left our office. Later we would find that he called his pastor, his cousins and a friend all did not reply. One girl friend of his did, she told him to meet her for drinks he told her what happened and he needed to save money and needed to be at his training job shortly. Within a 15 minute span wrote us a suicide letter, drove off and shot himself. a few minutes after he did a passer bye called 911. They took him to the hospital. The police came to our office to inform us we need to get to the hospital. The shock of all shock.... He passed away 1:04 am on the 17 of July. I never thought I could be so lost and broken as I am. I miss you so much Michael!
