I have taken b-12 injections for about 10 years is there any side effects in stopping the injections all at once?

Unlikely: But if u have been taking them for 12 years, don't u think it is more appropriate to discuss this with the doctor who prescribed to u?

What are the possible side effects of stopping Spiranolactone? Is it possible to have side effects after stopping this med and not when on it?

What are the possible side effects of stopping Spiranolactone? Is it possible to have side effects after stopping this med and not when on it?

Increased BP: The most common thing to happen if you stop this drug suddenly is that your blood pressure will increase. Typically you don't see more nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, vomiting, or headache after stopping the drug, but if you are encountering these symptoms, I would contact your doctor for specific instructions on how to stop the medication in a more controlled and appropriate manner.

I am 28F. I am using nexito plus and mirnite 15 for one month, will this have any side effects after stopping these? How long these can be used?

I am 28F. I am using nexito plus and mirnite 15 for one month, will this have any side effects after stopping these? How long these can be used?

Ask your doc.: Mirnite (mirtazapine) and Nexito Plus (escitalopram and clonazepam) should be tapered, the taper can be quite fast because you have not been on it very long. Ask your doc how to do and if you need to taper both or just one to feel better. Consider non-medical treatments or methods to manage depression and/or anxiety They work well, and if you take meds too, can help them work even better.

What are the side effects of stopping pro gout tablets?

What are the side effects of stopping pro gout tablets?

Maybe a gout attack: I assume you were taking the tablet because you had gout before? If so, stopping it will risk getting recurring attack (s) which tends to worsen with each subsequent episode and may/likely cause joint damage/gouty arthropathy (arthritis due to gout). So, check with doc before stopping it. If you have side effect from it, there maybe other options. Consult doc. Good luck.

What are the side effects of stopping adderal after taking it for years?

What are the side effects of stopping adderal after taking it for years?

It will show up fast: If you have any withdrawal symptoms. If the use was successful & necessary it's unlikely you will. Withdrawal can be difficult and similar to what Cocaine addicts go through. A major issue is that depression can be part of Cocaine withdrawal and severe enough that suicidal ideation is common. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) can act the same way but is less severe. Have your doctor manage any withdrawal plan.
