On 600mg lyrica&30mg oxynorm daily 6/12.Had back op now and going cold turkey off both as consult wont start weaning yet.How long to withdraw?
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

Cousin went off of anxiety meds and gained 15lbs in the weaning process. I start weaning off Lexapro (escitalopram) July 10th. Will this happen to me also?
Just started: It's possible headaches are a side effect. However, unless they are severe i'd continue for a few days and they may go away. If you stop and they persist follow up on this symptom and make sure there's no other cause. It may be an error to assume that the headaches and Cymbalta (duloxetine) are connected. ...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?
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

Not common: Lexapro (escitalopram) is usually used for depression, and sometimes for some chronic pain syndromes. It is not a common cause of back pain, but back/neck/shoulder pain is listed as a possible side effect in about 3% of people taking it. And anyone can have any reaction to any drug. So even if not common it may be true for that person. Extreme back pain would suggest another problem, so get it checked. ...Read more
