  If it helps then do so. Zoloft did me good, and bad(Weight Gain). Sadly any drug has weight gain. Try to stay healthy, drink water, and exercise. Everyone reacts to it differently, you have to try.

How long do the sexual side effects of Sertraline hydrochloride last?
I asked my GP for some anti-depressant which i previously took last year but i stopped taking it, i started again five days ago and i've experienced some of the sexual side effects that are listed on wikipedia, arousal disorder and difficulty achieving orgasm, i was wondering how long it could last, i read on wikipedia it can last for months or years, but as i have only been on it for five days it can't be that bad?

i was on 150mg per day, im 19 and male if that makes a difference, i had no problem prior to starting the medication

this is the article i was reading
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sertraline#Sexual_side_effects
edit: i've told my gp i'd like to stop taking them due to the side effects, so i won't be taking any other ones.

i wasn't sure how long it will last from now on though?

What are the specific symptoms if overdose occures with sertraline and mirtazapine?
My doctor wants me to take sertraline and mirtazapine. I am deathly afraid of taking these drugs because of the chances of addiction and overdosing.

What are the chances of adiction and the specific symptoms if overdose occures with sertraline and mirtazapine?

  All I can suggest is that these references below may help you somewhat

I'm not a medical expert - but it looks like both of these drugs do much the same thing for much the same symptoms - your medical practitioner should have told you if you are supposed to take both.

"specific symptoms of overdose"

Some of that information is in the references, but I am not sure I understand it properly - if you don't either, then a real doctor, talk with, you should!

I have seen various forums and reports on the internet, and many people have had quite bad side-effects with this drug. What have you experienced and is the drug working/has worked for you?

What is everyones opinion on the pill Zoloft (sertraline hydrochloride)?
For people knowing of the pill and its side effects i was wondering peoples thoughts on this medication.
An Introduction to Zoloft Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Zoloft® (sertraline hydrochloride); however, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it well. If problems do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can be easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.



(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Zoloft. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Zoloft side effects with you.)



Common Side Effects of Zoloft

Zoloft has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials, in which a group of people taking the drug have side effects documented and compared to another group not taking the medicine. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.

In these studies, the most common Zoloft side effects included:
I seem to has loss of appitie dizzyiness insomina nasuea hot cold flashes and a few others.

I am not sure if i should be concerned or if it's just my body getting use to it.
along with that I have heard so many rumors, postive and negative about 50/50. I appreciate everyones help.

Will clonidine and sertraline help with Suboxone withdrawal?
I've been on Suboxone for a few months well to help with withdrawal from OxyContin and Oxycodone IR. Now I'm wanting to go off of opiates altogether and I'm wondering if the clonidine and sertraline (Zoloft) my new psychiatrist prescribed will help with the withdrawals (which for me include horrible depression). I'm really looking for a support group to help me get through the withdrawals as well.

  The clonidine will help a little, I am also going through the same thing except I was on the subs for 3 years.... The best thing to do is just be very honest with your Doctor, I told my Dr. everything, how I was feeling crappy, restless etc. He put me on Clonidine, Valium and Lunesta but I have to see him weekly to give updates.......... Also the best support group is going to be your local N.A. meetings, it always helps to get out there and share and learn from others.....Even if your feeling like total crap get up and go it will help to take your mind off of it, also try to drink lots of water and go for a walk even if you feel like your gonna fall over, you have to get out of your head... Good luck

Sertraline and Hydrocodone and love to eat a grapefruit for breakfast?
I am also taking Crestor, Protonix, Folic Acid, Cyclobenzaprine, Sulfasalazine, Remicade , Furosemide, Klor-Con, Carbidopa-Levodopa and Methotrexate along with the Sertraline and Hydrocodone. Will eating grapefruit for breakfast every day cause me any serious issues? If so, please let me know what kind of issues and which meds would be involved. Thank you.

  The chemical composition in the grapefruit will increase the effect and pain killing properties of the Hydrocodone. I learned this from a drug counselor, but I have no idea if the grapefruit has any other effects on your other meds. You may want to consult a pharmacist because he could quickly and accurately find out if there may be any negative or life threatening side effects with a few quick clicks of his computer. Good luck! P.S. I love grapefruit, yum!

  The angiogram was NOT negative because it was done @ rest. There is no such thing as a "stress" angio.

ANY medical test (such as the ETT) can have what's called a "false positive". That means, simply, that the positive result was wrong. It showed positive when there is no heart disease.

The angiogram is the gold standard for diagnosing heart disease. It showed that you have no narrowings in your heart arteries to cause the pain.

Even if your doctor can't tell you exactly what's causing the problem, take reassurance in the fact that your heart is healthy.

Should I try dealing with natural or take meds for my anxiety?
I just got my first prescription of sertraline hydrochloride which is a generic version of zoloft or anti depressant.

I'm afraid to take it because of all the side affects and stuff and the bad reactions people had with it. plus putting chemicals into my body that might cause me to get addicted and dependent is a little terrifying. I'm only 22 years old and I've been dealing with ocd and anxiety for a little more than a year. I have ocd when I was a child and it resurfaced again at age 21.

I'm thinking if I should I try and improve on my own.. and see how it goes for a little while longer before really doing this.

What has worked best for you and what do you reccomend is better?

  I would say see a naturopathic dr. they are usually REALLY good at helping people figure out what is causing their fatigue. Supplements CAN help, but which supplements you need should really be determined by blookwork to see what you are lacking. Certain B vitamins can have side effects that are a pain in the butt themselves.

If you live in a state where naturopaths are licensed it should be covered by insurance

1st Psychotic Episode. Chance of relapse with use of cannabis/marijuana?
I am currently undergoing treatment for a psychotic episode caused by use of stimulants (amphetamines). I am taking 4mg of Risperidone daily (for the psychotic episode) and 50mg of Sertraline Hydrochloride daily (for general anxiety).

When the anti-psychotic treatment has ended and I am taken off the medication, I am considering using cannabis on an occasional basis. I was wondering what are the chances that I will have a relapse of the psychotic episode and possibly suffer worse than the first time?
Mark Adams

Reply
  You can't possibly be that stupid. First, amphetamine abuse almost certainly triggered your psychosis but didn't cause it. Expect another episode no matter what else you do. Second, high doses of cannabis can induce psychotic states in subjects who have no psychotic morbidity. Do you really think low doses of cannabis can't trigger an episode in a patient who has a history of psychosis? Third, you haven't even put your last bout of bad behavior behind you, and you're already looking for new ways to fail. Of course you're going to have a relapse and suffer worse than the first time; you may as well smoke up and accept the inevitable.

what are lincomycin hydrochloride and lidocaine hydrochloride gel use for?
miao
02/14/06
Reply
  Lincomycin hydrochloride is mainly used for fighting respiratory tract and soft tissue infections.

there's another type: It is indicated for the infections due to Staphylococcus,Streptococcus Pneumococcus and anaerobes. It may cause enteritis of pseudo-menbrane after prolonged administration. Patients with hepatic insufficiency should use prudently.

Lidocaine hydrochloride is used as a pain reliever. Lidocaine (lignocaine) belongs to a group of medicines known as local anaesthetics. Lidocaine acts to block temporarily the pathway of pain impulses along nerve fibres. This relieves or prevents pain in the area where it has been injected. This preparation is injected to provide local anaesthesia for minor procedures, such as dental surgery.


you can check out these websites. it's good. good luck!

  What you are seeing on the web is talking about exposure to vapors of hydrochloric acid, not about taking pills with a meal. Sort of like saying you can't drink from the municipal water supply because it is treated with chlorine when we know that chlorine gas is poison, especially to babies.

However, if you are still concerned, there are alternatives. You can take digestive bitters (Chamomile, Chickory, Gentian or a product called Swedish Bitters) at the start of a meal to increase your production of HCL. Also very helpful to sip vinegar water with meals. Mix 2-3 teaspoons apple cider vinegar and equal amount of honey in a little hot water. After it's dissolved, add cool water until it tastes pleasant.

  If you live in the United States then the FDA should ensure that any product advertised as containing 25mg dephenhydramine HCL will be the same as benadryl (the pink ones). If you take the green ones it'll have additional ingredients as well.

Safe to take two anti-depressants at same time?
This is a question for a doctor, pharmacist or nurse practitioner. Is it safe for an otherwise healthy person to take Sertraline (Zoloft) and Tofranil-PM together? One is an SSRI and the other is a tricyclic, and it seems like an awful lot of medication to me. But my doctor says it's perfectly safe to take them. I appreciate any feedback.

  Safe only if it is not for long tem use. Do you take both at the same time. Ideally you should take the Zoloft in the AM and the Tofranil in the PM. Does the zoloft make you drowsy? How long have you been on both meds? Do you have many side effects? Is your Dr. a psychiatrist? Has he mentioned to you how long he would like to keep you on both meds? I just want to make sure that you're being properly supervised. Do you suffer from a diagnosed chemical imbalance and are you also receiving counselling?

Thanks and I hope you will get back to me,

  There is no physiological mechanism by which anyone can become addicted to paracetamol. There have been reports of addiction to combination products where paracetamol is combined with an opioid medicine, but this has nothing to do with the paracetamol component.
Phenylephrine hydrochloride has had cases of addiction however tolerance is more reported and is recognised in most countries as non addictive.
Im more concerned about diphenhydramine hydrochloride which continuous use of this medication can lead to dependency and addiction.

I suggest you seek medical help if you feel you are unable to stop taking this medication
