Cases of visual hallucinations have been reported when pts miss doses or abruptly stop the medication. Several drugs (dextro-methorphan, triptans, meperidine, & others) in combination with Effexor (venlafaxine) can cause serotonin syndrome (toxicity) which includes hallucinations.

I am trying to conceive but have irregular periods? I just had my thyroid checked and it is normal. What should I do to up my chances of conceiving?

I am trying to conceive but have irregular periods? I just had my thyroid checked and it is normal. What should I do to up my chances of conceiving?

See a REI specialist: With irregular periods it may take longer to conceive because you're not ovulating (releasing an egg) every month. We need to find the cause: polycystic ovarian sydrome (pcos), prolactin hormone issues, aging of the ovary (low egg supply), or low hormone levels from exercise, eating disorders, or stress. See a reproductive endocrinologist for tests and treatment to help you get pregnant faster. ...Read more

I have a condition call vagisms and i was wondering could it cause problem giving birth? Could having cysts on my ovaries cause I am trying to get pregnant but it seems like im not having any luck i don't know if the vagisms have anything to  do with it o

Cysts : Cysts on the ovaries typically means you are ovulating (producing eggs), which is usually a good sign. As long as they appeared to be normal cysts that should not be a problem. I am not sure if you mean vaginitis (infectiono of the vagina) or vaginismus (painful spasms of the vagina). Vaginitis can be a problem with fertility if it was from a sexually transmitted infection such as chlamydia or gonorrhea, which can lead to scarring of the tubes. If you have vaginismus, which is painful spasms of the vagina, it usually does not cause problems with fertility unless it is impairing your ability to have intercourse. When you have intercourse, stay flat on your back for 10-15 minutes with your legs bent up to retain sperm. Be sure you are eating a healthful diet and not on any harmful medications. Be sure you are at a healthful weight (not too high or too low). If you still can't get pregnant, you will need to see your gynecologist or a fertility specialist again. ...Read more
