miconazole nitrate (400mg) for mycosis (vaginal)

The moment i took the capsule I didnt feel anything, half an hour went by and I felt like I wasnt able to sit on the chair with all the buring an itchiness that I was feeling. I started crying and jumping around and i even went to take a shower wondering if it would decrease the pain but unfortunately it didnt. It was a nightmare and I wont continue with the capsules. I highly suggest anyone wh...

paroxetine hydrochloride anhydrous (40 mg) for depression

I've had depression for about 4 years and finally decided to talk about it. I was put on Paroxetine 20mgs with nil changes, then i was put on 40mgs.

Seroxat

27/08/2018 | | 18
paroxetine hydrochloride hemihydrate (20mg) for anxiety disorder

My psychiatrist/therapist prescribed Seroxat 20mg for anxiety and depression. Been taking it for 2 years. Once tried to quit, got to 5mgs and started feeling the anxiety again. Came back to 20mgs/a day. It works perfectly for anxiety, not so good for depression. Honestly, I'm afraid of going off them, because I feel like the anxiety will come back. Also don't want to take them forever because o...

Citalopram

citalopram hydrobromide (20mg) for premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

Took just one of these 20mg tablets, took at 9:30pm woke at 01:30 am in an absolute state of panic, (had gone to bed feeling very calm) started hyperventilating, shaking, felt like I had been given a massive dot of adrenaline, made me feel very tearful, did not get back to sleep, left me feeling anxious, tight jaw muscles. Everyone is different and responds differently, but I will definitely no...

None of these where like me. I told my Dr i cannot handle extra hormones but apparently yo...

desogestrel (0,075mg) for contraception / birth control

Had a horrible 2 years on Cerazette. Dr suggested it when my previous pill was discontinued, within a couple of months of starting it husband told me I was being weird, I put it down to other external factors. Put on 2 stone, had no libido whatsoever, and depressive symptoms so bad I was on the verge of seeing the Dr for help, but eventually after a Google of Cerazette found many other reviews ...

etoricoxib (90mg) for arthritis

I took this drug for pain associated with a rheumatoid arthritis flare. Within 2 days my limbs had all swollen and I was in extreme pain. I was suffering severe cramping pains in legs and had trouble controlling my bladder. The symptoms lasted several weeks and needed oral steroids to regain control. I wouldn't use again.

Flucloxacillin

flucloxacillin sodium (500mg) for infection (wound)

The capsules don't taste great, and I am a grazer so hard to fit in around food as you have to take on an empty stomach four times a day. I got really bad indigestion while taking the tablets.

Gyno-Daktarin

06/08/2018 | | 21
miconazole nitrate (400mg) for mycosis (vaginal)

I used this for my yeast infection and had absolutely no problem with it at all. I felt a small tingle but was not bothering at all and saw some results after the first night. It really depends on the person and the severity of the infection I guess for there to be side affects, but I would use this again for sure.

Arcoxia

04/08/2018 | | 29
etoricoxib (90mg) for psoriatic arthritis

Prescribed this instead of Naproxen which was fairly effective but I did not like the need to take a proton pump inhibitor in order to avoid the gastro side effects. No complaints about Arcoxia, I can take it on an empty stomach with no adverse effects. This is gradually aiding in the calming down of dactylitis in my toes. The inflammation and pain is dramatically reduced a couple of hours af...

Seroxat

paroxetine hydrochloride hemihydrate (30mg) for unpleasant side effect from another medicine

I ended up taking this for 2 years after my GP misdiagnosed undocumented side effects from another drug (tetrazepam) as depression. The tetrazepam was for neck pains and caused people to pass out, although this was not a documented side effect at the time. When this happened to me, my GP assumed depression and prescribed Seroxat. But on topic: Whatever you do, do NOT take Seroxat. This drug is...

Gyno-Daktarin

16/07/2018 | | 36
miconazole nitrate (1200mg) for candida (oral)

The itching each night took a whole new level. I’m surprised it’s described on the information leaflet as a mild side effect. Am I taking the wrong pessaries then? Is Gyno-daktarin for vaginal yeast infections at all. The itchiness deep within the vagina is tooo much!!! I’m tempted to insert an object and scratch to ease this itchy feeling.
