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.
  • Androgel for secondary hypogonadism
    Severe swelling in legs, ankles and feet after being on my feet for more than one hour. Pain in calves and ankles. Feels like they're being squeezed or compressed. Pain dissipates after laying down for a few hours. Swelling never completely dissipates. Always some swelling in ankles.

  • Started Cipro this evening after getting results from Dr. today. Neither one of us knew what the bacteria was. Came home and looked it up, and supposedly only three people have had it. Usually kills fish. I have not eaten the things that cause it, so wonder if medically related.
