From this study (3 years ago):
S. Romero on Apr, 10, 2011:
Female. Motrin. Myclonic jerk. Can actually "hear" the "electrical" surge right before the jerk. Maybe about 3-5 in a row about 5 minutes apart. The whole series is always preceded by vertigo. Happened to me twice before I suspected it was the Motrin. Haven't taken Motrin since.
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- What medications cause hair loss
Been experiencing hair loss for several months and the loss has increased the last couple of months. My doctor ran thyroid test and it was normal. The loss has been gradual and it is not breaking off, but coming out at the root.
- Safe for sleep
is this for sleep? lots of side effects - has anyone used this. how about the next day, are you alert or how does this drug stay in the body and what are the effects.
- How likely is it that celexa will increase blood pressure?
I have been taking Remeron 15 mg for a few months and recently added 5 mg Celexa. My systolic blood pressure went up immediately; it had been mostly in the high 120's and now is 140+. Is this a coincidence, or could the Celexa be causing it?
