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. Consult this site for more information on this topic. http://www.nichd.nih.gov/health/topics/menstruation/conditioninfo/Pages/causes.aspx Practice safe sex. ...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

Depends on a variety of things like the dose and how long you have been on the Seroquel (quetiapine). I would definitely bring this up with your physician. ...Read more

Was on depo for 2 years, just come off it, what are the side effects of coming off it as I feel awful?

Was on depo for 2 years, just come off it, what are the side effects of coming off it as I feel awful?

A link for you...: The result is erratic but high estrogen levels causing nausea, sore breasts, fluid retention and abdominal bloating, mood swings and heavy or prolonged vaginal bleeding. With high estrogen levels and weight gain, plus the “hypothalamic incoordination,” ovulation doesn't occur and therefore no progesterone is produced.

Been on pristiq (desvenlafaxine) 50mg for 1 month, quit cold turkey, been getting brain zaps & nauseated- should I slowly wean myself off or stick this out cold turkey?

Been on pristiq (desvenlafaxine) 50mg for 1 month, quit cold turkey, been getting brain zaps & nauseated- should I slowly wean myself off or stick this out cold turkey?

Better to wean: off of Pristiq than to stop cold turkey. Because you are asking this- it makes me wonder if you are doing this under the prescribing medical provider's supervision. Please don't change your meds without discussing with your doctor/ psychiatrist. ...Read more

Do headaches from taking cymbalta (duloxetine) go away.? Just started taking it

Do headaches from taking cymbalta (duloxetine) go away.? Just started taking it

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

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?

Lexapro (escitalopram): Not necessarily because no two people respond the same way. But if worried about weight then would be proactive by eating balanced healthy meals and incorporating a regular exercise regimen. ...Read more

I came off Depo-Provera on oct. 15. Bled on dec. 1st-5th. Then it started back up on dec.14. Is this pregnancy? Or is it just cause of coming off the shot?

I came off Depo-Provera on oct. 15. Bled on dec. 1st-5th. Then it started back up on dec.14. Is this pregnancy? Or is it just cause of coming off the shot?

Probably from shot: In all likelihood this is due to recent use of Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone). Menses can be irregular, or even absent, for up to a year. To avoid pregnancy be sure to use another method of contraception. ...Read more
