- Fructose malabsorption symptoms become wore with effexor
I took Venlafaxine for several years. During that time I was diagnosed with Fructose Malabsorption (FM), something I suspect that I have had for years already. For a period of two years I switched medication and took some other SSRIs instead of Venlafaxine and then returned to Venlafaxine and found that my FM symptoms right away increased/returned. When I came off of Venlafaxine I noticed that my FM symptoms became easier to manage but going back on Venlafaxine has confirm that it does indeed cause greater IBS and FM symptoms.
- Xanax xr lives up to it's claim.
I get annoyed reading so many negative reviews of Xanax XR. I assume those come from thrill-seeking drug addicts. Therapeutically I find Xanax XR to be a genius idea - and it works like it should. Xanax was aleady long-established as (probably the most) effective anti-anxiety & anti-panic agent, that also does wonders for things like 'social phobia'. But the problem was always that Xanax wore off too quickly, leaving the patient in a state of wanting more. I know, I was one of those patients. Then came along Xanax XR: meant to deliver the same drug over an extended period of time. It does that just fine, I don't need to carry around a bottle of pills to have my next dose at-the-ready. Xanax XR does the job for a solid 8-12 hours (I give a range because I never actually counted the hours.). The best part is that I feel the first beneficial effect only 30 minutes after taking Xanax XR - I don't have to wait 2 hours. It's forumlated well. Sorry that drug junkies can't get a 'rush' from it. But it is Xanax and it does last all day.
- Xanax almost killed me!
I took xanax and went to bed, I woke up in hospital. I had been there a long time in a coma. They were about to take me off life support! All because of xanax.

Diagnosed with diverticulitis and ibs in 2011
From this study (4 months ago):
I have been in pain and have suffered for over 7 years with muscle pain with cramping, aching, burning, stinging, pins/needles, weakness, numbness and paralysis, etc. I live with fatigue and utter exhaustion everyday and hate having to take medicine period, but have no choice in the matter. I know that this is something serious..I can feel it. I just have to get the Doctors, to find it...and fix whatever it is that is wrong.
I am trying to find what is the root cause of it all, then I might be able to find some relief.."Lord Willing". I have always been a driven individual and love life. I am a fighter and a survivor, so I will continue forward..until I find a way to the answer.
The pain level stays around 5 or 6 everyday and can be overwhelming at times, but I pray and I find relief for a moment..from The Lord. Grateful to be alive. Just want life to be normal again and to be able, to spend my time with my family that I have missed so much of.
