Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) 50mg taking it before bed as it makes me so tired, can't take it in morning. Wake up still so tired! Should i take it earlier in the night?

Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) 50mg taking it before bed as it makes me so tired, can't take it in morning. Wake up still so tired! Should i take it earlier in the night?

Not sure: Desvenlafaxine has a plasma 1/2-life of about 11 hr, so a single dose isn't mostly eliminated for 48-60 hr. However, side effects aren't necessarily dose- or time-dependent. Sometimes it takes up to a month for some side effects to become tolerable. The doc who prescribed it is obligated to work with you on this and should be willing to anyway if (s)he's a caring practitioner. ...Read more

Hi doc...my boyfriend has a chronic cough...he does smoke daily but is taking methylprefnisolone. ..he missed hia morning dose..can he take morning and lunch dose together...how long before he notices a change..is is coughing a little less. This is day 3

Hi doc...my boyfriend has a chronic cough...he does smoke daily but is taking methylprefnisolone. ..he missed hia morning dose..can he take morning and lunch dose together...how long before he notices a change..is is coughing a little less. This is day 3

Can skip dose: If coughing is related to smoking secondary to a chronic form of trachea bronchitis while prednisone may relieve some symptoms, long term steroid use is not in his best interest and missing one or more doses for relief of symptoms is insigmificant. It is better to stop smoking if one is to control the problems related to it. ...Read more

Lexapro (escitalopram) sleepiness: Take 1/2 dose in the morning and 1/2 dose at bedtime. If that doesn't work then consult with your psychiatrist about possibly lowering the dose. If you're still real tired in the morning then perhaps a review of your medications and a sleep evaluation may be necessary. Best wishes. ...Read more

Change in size: It may have to do with your weight or growth-sometimes if you a little older or weigh more it can alter how your body processes the medication. If Concerta has helped you in the past you may just need a slightly higher dose. ...Read more

I've been recently prescribed ritalin (methylphenidate) ir 20mg once a day every morning for a week. It works, but is it too soon to ask about longer lasting release?

I've been recently prescribed ritalin (methylphenidate) ir 20mg once a day every morning for a week. It works, but is it too soon to ask about longer lasting release?

No, it is not!: In fact, many professionals would suggest a long acting preparation from the start! long acting medications are more consistent, provide smoother and longer lasting symptoms relief and tend to have fewer side effects because of the less fluctuation in blood levels. Many studies show superior benefit in symptom control on the long lasting preparations. ...Read more

How long after stop drinking bottle wine almost daily 2 yrs, would withdrawal happen if it were going to? Few days, feel ok, no shakes, sweats, etc.

How long after stop drinking bottle wine almost daily 2 yrs, would withdrawal happen if it were going to? Few days, feel ok, no shakes, sweats, etc.

Alcohol withdrawal: Alcohol withdrawal is going to be over within days after drinking. The psychological experience of craving could appear again much later, but it is being caused by thoughts getting cued, not by an actual physiological withdrawal. And sorry to disease model believers, but there is no such thing as a disease of alcoholism, it is a conscious behavior that is a response to something else-what happened ...Read more
