Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Does zoloft cause ringing in the ears, like tinnitus? i've been on it for a month and noticed the ringing in the ears about a week ago, and it's just constant ringing and it's driving me insane. (1 answer)
    I've been on most of the medications for more than a year and it hasn't been that bad getting used to them. But I've been on Zoloft and ambien for about a month now, and I've been noticing a lot of side effects. The one I just recently noticed and that has been driving me completely insane, is the ringing in the ears. It's been about a week now and I just don't know what to do anymore. If it is the Zoloft then I can finally just stop taking it and make this stop. If anyone has an answer or knows what to do, PLEASE help. I'm at my wits end.
  • What caused this type of reaction?
    Why would Advil and orange juice cause this type. Of reaction, when he took Advil. The day before. He is to allergic to bees, but never had food reaction. Used his epic. Pen but throat and. Tongue continue to. Swell with hives. Will allergic reaction get worse. Was very scary
  • Can buspar cause hair loss?
    I take fluoxetine (40mg) for depression and buspirone (10mg). Can these drugs, especially buspirone cause hair loss as a side effect?
  • Can my combination of meds be causing me to overheat, gain weight and raise my blood pressure? i experienced all three. weight might be due to diet, but what about the rest?
    I'm 6ft, 220lbs, so pretty overweight. Have been taking fluoxetine for about 6-8 months @60mg/day, and various antidepressants before. Also have been taking Seretide (fluticasone propionate) @250mg twice daily for a couple of years. Recently started going to the gym to alleviate my prehypertension and lose excess weight, but I noticed that I overheat and sweat incredibly much. My heart rate during cardio also rarely dips below 150.

    I used to weigh about 180lbs, but gained a lot of weight probably due to depression and bad diet. Did not have such problems with overheating before.

    Could the overheating, intensive sweating, high blood pressure and heart rate somehow associated with my meds? Or is it just my being overweight and out of shape?

    Thanks!

  • Prozac for children with pandas ocd
    No side effects, works wonders, taking for two years and weaning off.
  • Took buspirone once and got a blister
    Took Buspirone 5mg once and a few minutes later felt a bubble on my lip. The next morning I check and sure enough it's a blister on my top lip. Called a nurse and she said I had an allergic reaction.
  • Prednisone relieves anosmia
    Having had anosmia for 15 years now the only thing that ever relieves it, albeit temporarily, is prednisone. I have done 2 surgeries to remove polyps (and won't do it again, waste of time and money - the polyps returned within a year), every herb and other "guaranteed cure" (bogus) on the Internet and the only thing that gives me my smell back is prednisone. Have also done allergy injections, nebulizers, neti-pots, Flonase, etc. None of these things work.
    Being without smell is subtly debilitating. It takes away your drive, your pleasures of life and leads to depression. I wish the medical community would apply as much effort here as they do to the loss of hearing or sight since this is in many ways just as debilitating although in more subtle ways.
  • Fluoxetine with hypnagogic hallucinations
    Was taking fluoxetine until recently for a depressive episode (suffered from depression pretty much my whole life). Strange hypnagogic hallucinations and bizarre thoughts, sometimes coupled with feeling faint. Also strong feelings of numbness for the first two weeks or so, headaches and dry mouth. Strangely only on 20mg...This is my second time on fluoxetine and the experience has been totally different (last time it seemed to make me act callously and superficially towards people, and to be generally irresponsible, going out, avoiding work etc.).

    Doctor had now changed me over to sertraline, been on it for 3 days and ok so far apart from minor headaches.
  • Are you mental on methadone
    My doctor changed my pain medication back in May of 2014 . I was pleased with how well it handle my back pain and was pleased with how inexpensive it was. My husband had been using the same drug with great results. It wasn't until about a month later I started to notice just feelings of sadness. I didn't think too much of it but then I would get such strong feelings of despair really bad that I would just cry. I also started getting a lot of panic attacks I had so much anxiety at times it prevented me from doing things. At one point I really thought I was having some sort of break down, but the feelings would have highs and lows and sometimes I would have a day with out them. Eventually after being on them for 7 months I went to my doctor and asked if it were possible I was experiencing these feelings from the Methadone. He wasn't sure but with it all happening right after I started taking them he decided to put me on something else. It's been about three weeks and even though the feelings are still there they are not as strong and seem to be passing. I hope as time goes I will feel like myself again and hope never to have to experience something like that again.

  • For the last 3 years in the spring, I have developed a severe cough and peripheral edema. I was hospitalized for this 2 years ago when the cough wouldn't resolve and the edema became cellulitis. Antibiotics help with the cough, but the edema persists. Never had this so late in the year, usually resolved by now.

    I had been taking nasonex for about 16 months on and off when the insurance wouldn't approve it any longer....then I was able to get approval after 2 months of being off of it. (filled scrip in dec 2013) I used it everyday. I was not taking anything else except ibuprofen on and off when needed. I continued to get sicker. I had headaches, eye pain, ear pain, sore throats and a swishing sound like a heart beat. It went on to cause short term memory loss and confusion. I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension with papilledema. I found 2 articles that talked about steroidal usage as a cause for IIH with paps. I looked up Nasonex and found it was a steroidal spray. I stopped taking it on June 19, 2014 and for the last 3 days I have had no double vision, and no swishing in my ears.....I am hoping the rest of the symptoms will subside with time. I strongly suggest anyone taking this medication to do so with the ut most caution.
