  • 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.
  • Imetrix verses butalb/acet/caffeine
    I have taken both Imitrex and Butalb/acet/caffeine and I have to say that Imitrex works far better than the other one! The substitute I was given for Imitrex doesn't even touch my migraine pain.
  • Wheezing stopped after topamax sessesion
    Wheezing noted by primary physician in this non-smoker. Stopped Topamax per doctor's instruction. 48 hours later was examined by physician and noted that wheezing stopped.
  • Review: could lyrica cause intracranial pressure increased?
    One dose (75mg) caused severe head pain (increased intracranial pressure) and nausea.
  • Bad side effect of melatonin/imitrex use together
    I have taken melatonin for insomnia I've been experiencing recently (not a chronic condition). I haven't had any problems or interactions with my other regular medications while using the melatonin, other than drowsiness in the morning. Last night I had a migraine at bedtime, so took 50 mg. of imitrex, my usual dose for one. Since I haven't had one during the period I've been taking the melatonin I feel fairly confident in assuming that my symptoms were a result of the combination.



    I was awoken--thank god!--by choking on my own saliva and almost vomiting. I was able to go back to sleep--lying on my side to avoid aspirating anything--and was awoken again several hours later while I was wetting the bed!!! Incontinence has never been an issue for me (well, not since I was 3, I imagine) and I was really shocked. Although I immediately got up to clean the bed, I was so sleepy that I got back in (on the dry side :) and slept for another 4 hours.



    Although, as I mentioned, I think it's likely that the problem was the result of an interaction with the Imitrex, which has a soporific effect, I'll stop using the melatonin to be safe!
