Diclofenac

diclofenac potassium (75MG) for Arthritis of the spine

I take this medication for pain in my neck (failed fusion) and for my shoulder (arthritis). I try to stay away from opioids if possible, so my GP prescribed me this. It works at relieving the pain just as well as an opioid, but without the side effects. Simply amazing! Some days I don't need to take the medication, but when I feel the pain returning, I take as prescribed and then I am pain-f...

miconazole nitrate (400MG) for Yeast infection on the skin

I know everyone is complaining about the tortorous burn while using it. I guess it is just how it works amd ir depends on how advanced your candida is. My doctor gave me 3 pills to use in one day and I inserted the first one at night. I have to admit it was hell for about two hours- itching and burning. But after it relieved and I fell asleep. I was a bit scared to take it again the mext mornin...

iron dextran (100MG/ML) for Anaemia (iron deficiency)

I am about to start my third course of iron injections in the last 10 years. I have always found the results to be fantastic with no adverse effects. The treatment I have (course of 10 injections over a 3 week period) gives me approx 4/5 years of benefit. If I have to have this periodically throughout my life I will.

miconazole nitrate (20MG/G) for Yeast infection on the skin

I was in Antwerp for a conference and the day before the conference I noticed strange discharges so I went to an emergency gynecologist and he prescribed it to me. I needed to be perfect for the conference and reading this website I was very afraid of side effects. But this did not happen, rushes or itches never came and I think this drug is effective ! But yes this was my experience

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.

Depression subsided but my weight gain was HUGE i put on 10 kilos in just a few months which made me MORE depressed and if i missed a dose i would feel awful shaking, headaches, electric shocks, etc. I also had no sex drive at all, affected my re...

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...

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 ...

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.

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...
