I take both isradipine and losartan for hbp. Previously was prescribed nefidipine which caused swollen ankles. Still have swollen ankles. What?
I started symptoms of parkinsons.Loss of smell almost total now.Ridgity and loss of balence has gotten worse.Would isradipine help.Sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa) helped .?

Is Paxil (paroxetine) cr a safe drug to take for dep/anxiety? There's so much negative press on it...
Paxil (paroxetine) CR: It is used w good results by many. I think that 1 issue that brings it negative press can be a discontinuation syndrome that can occur when it is stopped (especially if cold turkey). Althought this can occur w other ssri meds, it can be fairly dramatic w paxil (paroxetine). I do find that some other ssri's tend to have fewer side effects but there is a potential for side effects w any medication. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can i take cymbalta and paxil (paroxetine) cr together ? Will anyone of these drugs cause the other to not work or possibly lower its effect ?

Either way, this is to be discussed with your physician since these alternatives are not for everyone. Good luck. ...Read more
