Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Is sciatica and macrobid induced muscle and joint pain reversible?

- Should i take activella 1/.5 for menapause symptoms? i have tachycardia and a strong family history of heart disease and problems.
I am trying to decide if I should take Activella 1/.5 for treatment of Menapause symptoms that are driving me nuts. I have been struggling with hot flashes and night sweats along with dryness, and difficulty sleeping. My doctor told me that since I am 48 and already about a year into this that treatment should last only 1 to 2 years. With my health conditions and family history, I am curious about the benefits verses the risks involved with taking this drug.
- Muscle spasms and other things when taking lexapro
I am a 29 years old female. I went to see a psychiatrist because I felt depressed. I had never been to a psychiatrist before nor taken drugs for depression. He made me a prescription for Lexapro. I started taking 7,5mg a day as prescribed. This is only my fourth day and I have experienced mild hallucinations (I look at the walls in my room and they seem to be moving), tremors, muscle spasms and had difficulty breathing. I have been reading about seratonin syndrome and now I'm worried this is happening to me. I just wonder if it is possible that I have been affected while taking such a small dosage for so little time.

I am currently experiencing constant muscle contractions in my abdomen and jerking movements in my neck and midsection. My neck will pull back by itself... Or while I'm standing I'll involuntarily bend over. I'm also having balance issues. I feel very unstable walking and am experiencing some tremors.

This condition causes me to turn my head to the left and make it difficult to do anything normally.
