I kept coming on period and coming off my period?

I kept coming on period and coming off my period?

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

I'm going through Zoloft (sertraline) withdrawal and I take Vicodin. Will taking Vicodin stop or slow the recovery process from coming off of Zoloft (sertraline)?

I'm going through Zoloft (sertraline) withdrawal and I take Vicodin. Will taking Vicodin stop or slow the recovery process from coming off of Zoloft (sertraline)?

No: These two medications act on the body in separate ways, so the use of Vicodin is not recommended for symptoms of withdrawal from Zoloft (sertraline). I would recommend that you discuss this with the Doctor who prescribed the Zoloft (sertraline) so that you can be appropriately weaned off the Zoloft (sertraline), if it is indicated. ...Read more

I've been on morphine 30 mg tablets, what's the best way to taper off of morphine?

I've been on morphine 30 mg tablets, what's the best way to taper off of morphine?

Take less: You could either cut the tablets if they are not extended release or use a smaller dosage formulation. You probably could reduce by about 10% ever three or four days without too much trouble. Some feel that you could reduce by 25% in that same period. Depends on your motivation and how much withdrawal symptoms you can tolerate. There are meds that will reduce those symptoms significantly. ...Read more

Im 8weeks off off Suboxone and on naltrexone still no energy and terrible RLS .Just started lyrica (pregabalin) &doc is slowly raising dose will this ever end?

Im 8weeks off off Suboxone and on naltrexone still no energy and terrible RLS .Just started lyrica (pregabalin) &doc is slowly raising dose will this ever end?

Ask for specific : Treatment for rls. Narcotics such as suboxone do a great job blocking rls. Naltrexone on the other hand can have the opposite effect. Your doctor should order a ferritin level to make sure that your total iron body stores are not diminished. I would not be surprised if you also have periodic limb movements of sleep which often accompanies rls. This can cause a great disturbance in sleep continuity and daytime fatigue and sleepiness. The treatment is the same as for rls. ...Read more
