Could cipralex be harmful for me. Am asking about if there is amiss diagnosis. Or if I don't really need it..

Could cipralex be harmful for me. Am asking about if there is amiss diagnosis. Or if I don't really need it..

Your conditions are: Listed as 'feeling anxious' and 'mood swings'. Cipralex (escitalopram) is often used for anxiety or depression. I don't really have a way to know how much you do or don't need it. Did a psychiatrist prescribe it who could help you to come to a conclusion on that matter? Every medication has possible side effects. I don't have a way to know if you were misdiagnosed. Second opinion may help. ...Read more

If that happens, your doctor can choose an alternative antibiotic to treat your condition. Feel better:) ...Read more

If I finish my Zpack on Friday can I drink on Saturday?

Azithromycin - Zpack: Azithromycin has a half-life of 4 days -which is why the 'Z-pack' is only 5 days long as compared to a standard course of antibiotics that may last 10 days.

I would recommend to take it easy. There will be other parties! ...Read more
