How long time does "zoloft 50 mg " need to make an effect on the patient if he have anxiety+mild depression ?

Zoloft (sertraline): Like most antidepressants, zoloft (sertraline) requires at least 4-6 weeks to show effectiveness. You may need a higher dose than the 50mg you're now taking. Doctors usually titrate the dose gradually, allowing your body to become accustomed to it. Please work with your doctor to obtain symptom relief.

Does the IUD contraception have an effect of weight gaining wen taken? And roughly how much does it cost?

Does the IUD contraception have an effect of weight gaining wen taken? And roughly how much does it cost?

Long-term insertion: The IUD is a device, you do not ingest it. I does not mess w/ hormones so there should be no weight impact. Cost is hard to say from culture to culture - but in the USA, insertion is the expensive part. A provider must do it. You can find this info locally. It does nothing to protect against STDs - so that can still be a big concern for some. ...Read more

Would tagamet (cimetidine) have the potential to effect a testosterone test the same day? In other. Words temporarily lower it for the test ? Thanks so much

Tagamet (cimetidine) only: Affects testosterone at very high doses over a prolonged period of time. It is unlikely that one dose could lower the level enough to make the test abnormal. If there's a concern, stop the tagamet (cimetidine) and repeat the test at a later date. Talk w/your doctor. ...Read more

How much of an effect will Loratadine have on panel testing if inadvertently taken within a day or two of beginning the test?

How much of an effect will Loratadine have on panel testing if inadvertently taken within a day or two of beginning the test?

Not much: if anything. By panel testing, I presume you mean standard blood tests measuring usual chemistries done for a check-up. If by panel testing you mean allergy skin tests, the recommendation is to avoid antihistamines for a full 48 hours prior to testing as the drug may diminish otherwise positive skin test reactions. Drugs of abuse tests should not be affected. I hope this helps. Stay well:) ...Read more

Can .25MG of Klonopin (clonazepam) actually reduce my anxiety?I feel like the dose is too low. Doctor says I can take .5mg if the initial dose doesn't help

Relative dosages : The number of milligrams of a particular medication is meaningless without knowing its relative strength compared to other similar medications. In this case, 0.25 mg. of Klonopin (clonazepam) = 5 mg of Valium, 0.5 = 10 mg of Valium, which would put most people out. More importantly, are you in psychotherapy? For many types of anxiety, exposure-based therapies are extremely effective. ...Read more
