Utovlan

13/09/2021 | | 36moderated by Charlotte
norethisterone (5mg) for Postpone menstruation

Worst thing I ever did was take Utovlan. My period didn't stop for 10days once I came off these tablets. I feel generally really ill with headaches and my hair has started to fall out in clumps in the 10 days after stopping. I was definitely depressed whilst on them during a two week period. I felt really horrible and not myself which spoilt my holiday. Once I stopped them I began to feel mysel...

Emselex

28/08/2021 | | 49moderated by Susan
darifenacin hydrobromide (7,5MG) for Overactive bladder

I've been taking Emselex 7.5 for just about 8 months and around 3 months ago I started having diarrhea almost daily. I've also been experiencing itchiness on my head for around 2 months and a week ago my arms, back, face and legs have been itchy. What's worse? Not being able to sleep because of an overactive bladder or because of being itchy all over?

Zoely

estradiol hemihydrate, nomegestrol acetate (1,5/2,5MG) for Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

I've tried 3 different pills before Zoely and it was hell. Mood swings, nausea, more acne etc. However, i've had no problems with Zoely, especially in terms of mood. My periods are also shorter which is a plus.

Zopiclone

zopiclone (7,5MG) for Insomnia

Works well to get you asleep, bitter taste in morning for a while but goes away after a while, I have been on Zopiclone a lot longer than I intended but it is very good for sleep... until you develop a tolerance 2 - 4 weeks after daily use. Then your back to square 1. 9/10

Gyno-Daktarin

miconazole nitrate (20MG/G) for Candidiasis

I see a lot of people who have had really bad side effects and almost discouraged me from using this but I am about 4 days in and I have not felt any adverse side effects at all I think we all react differently but maybe it depends on how aggressive your infection is? Mine is not so bad as I was taking a round of Fluconazole before this but it was not fully gone away

Zoely

23/05/2021 | | 50moderated by Henry
estradiol hemihydrate, nomegestrol acetate (1,5/2,5MG) for Menopause

This pill made my vagina smell strange and I discontinued using it. When I stopped taking Zoely the smell stopped as well. Very strange. I have tried a lot of contraceptives and never had this issue before.

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (120mg) for Asthma

After trying a myriad of inhalers and tablets one the pst 40 years, my own other recommended Fostair. I spoke to my doctor about it and was promptly issued with it. As someone who has hay fever, dust and animal allergies, and an active exercise induced asthma I have been very used to getting to the end of my course of Beclomethasone preventative inhalers and having to time ordering the next pre...

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (100/6) for Asthma

Only been using this for four days for moderate and occasionally sever asthma, but during those four days I have not required my Ventolin or any other medicine (previously I was on Clenil and 1 x Montelucast at night. I take 2 puffs in the morning and 2 in the evening before going to bed. I have allergic swell as exercise induced asthma, and so far I am extremely impressed with the efficacy of ...

Femoston-conti

06/04/2021 | | 61moderated by Charlotte
dydrogesterone, estradiol hemihydrate (0,5/2,5MG) for Menopause

This has literally been a life saver for me. I entered menopause at the same time as my eldest son had a brain tumour and my husband had a breakdown. I had to care for both of them, while working full-time. Femoston Conti made me feel like me again, giving me the strength to get through this.

Bipolar disorder

major depressive disorder (mdd)

Life on a daily basis is purely black and white and not a colourful break to break the bleakness of bipolar disorder and the over whelming feeling of impending doom is only a heartbeat away,I'm 59 and first episode began as a 8 year child, and in some respects it was and still is an extremely taboo subject.

agomelatine (25MG) for Insomnia

The side effects of this drug are horrific. I thought I was going insane inside my head after taking these. Id imagine the rate of suicide from drug is sky hi. Avoid this drug at all cost.

Fostair

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (200 micrograms) for Asthma

Have been using this Inhaler for 3 months for chronic Asthma, Bronchiectasis and ABPA. Probably the most inefficient giving system I have ever encountered. When unwell its difficult to inhale this deeply into lungs. A lot ends up in your mouth and particles feel large. I don't think very much is ingested into my lungs at all and I wonder if trials used healthy individuals with excellent peak fl...

Cerazette

desogestrel (0,075MG) for Contraception / birth control

Only been taking for a week. Have been so snappy and angry. Instantly regret being mean and then do it straight away after like I have literally no control of myself or my temper. Im usually very chilled out and never get angry so its 100% the pill. Also never had so many spots looked in the mirror today and hardly recognised myself. Not taking this horrid drug ever again. Reader be warned!

Champix

varenicline tartrate (1MG) for Stop smoking

After 30 years of smoking about 15 a day, I have finally Quit using Champix! On day 31 no smoking. I found after day 9 of taking Champix, I had no urge to smoke, so I didn't. I also got nausea but found taking it straight after eating fixed that. I would highly recommend Champix as a miracle cure for smokers.

desogestrel (0,075MG) for Contraception / birth control

I have been taking this pill for close to a year now. It has been great, no side effects, worked as it was supposed to. Until July. Apparently some pills are too light for me, they don't control my hormones as they should, I had this with yasminelle and now with Cerazette. I am prescribed heavier pills cause these ligher ones just don't stop the bleeding. I was bleeding for the whole month exce...

Rivaroxaban (20MG) for Vascular disorders of intestine

I started taking Warfarin and took it for 12 months. Then I switched to Xarelto and took it for about 10 months. This summer as temperature hot more hot I started having major rashes kind of like Jock Itch. I felt like a dog scratching non stop. I thought it was my water filter, the detergent, my underwear, you name it. I purchased medication, changed my clothing. The Xarelto was causing ...
