Cerazette

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...

Xarelto

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 ...

Since I started taking Zoely a month ago I have had severe cognitive impairment to the point of being unable to function, visuo-spatial impairment and problems with vision in general, I feel like I have jet lag from a 24 hour while also being drunk.

Flucloxacillin

flucloxacillin sodium (500MG) for Bacterial infection

I injured my toe, there was swelling and it wasn't healing properly. The nail had to be removed in pieces. The flucloxacillin is made by Milpharm, not listed above. Gives me such high levels of anxiety I thought I was about to die. It is not true, that antibiotics do not cause panic attacks, every time I take these, I get panic attacks and feel like I am dying. The effect lasts for abou...

medroxyprogesterone acetate (150MG/ML) for Contraception / birth control

I am 16 and decided to go on the depo to fix some very painful and nauseating periods, as well as contraception. I had it in January. I am still bleeding because of it today. Everything was okay for about a month, and then I got some spotting. I was fine with that as I thought it would stop after a little bit... boy was I wrong... the spotting turned into bleeding. I have been getting increasi...

i took this 3 times a day, 3 days before my period. and it delayed really well. after 3 days of not taking it however, i had the WORST cramps (usually i dont get them), and heavy bleeding. definitely worth the pain though, because i really did not want my period on the event i was attending.

miconazole nitrate (400MG) for Candidiasis

Jesuusss my insides!! Lying on my back with knees on my chest, need all the air I can get. Went through the first day and dreaded the second day but it's worse. How could this be for the vagina? Irritation, burning, itching, very torturous. Redness turned pink so guess it's working. Need a sleeping tablet for the last one. Definitely a last, sheesh. Glad to know I'm not alone . Won't recommend....

norethisterone (5MG) for Postpone menstruation

I used this a few times to delay my period on holidays. First couple of times I took them for only around 4 days and it worked like a charm with no side affects. The third time however, I had a longer holiday and took it for 9 days in a row, just 1 tiny tablet a day, it gave me amplified PMS, I was acting crazy and not myself. After a fight with my bf, I went to the hotel room balcony to get so...

norethisterone (5MG) for Postpone menstruation

I took these tablets, I started 1 day before my due period and they did exactly what I hoped to do. I was going on holidays for a week. My doctor gave me a 10 day course and instructed me to take 1 tablet three times daily, evenly spread throughout the day. Towards the end of the week, I became less conscious of it and took 2 daily, so I now have a couple of leftover tablets. They still worked ...

I have used Avamys successfully for more than five years on a daily basis. However, in recent six months I began to notice that some (not all) of the units I buy deliver no effect and do not unblock my nose. Has anyone else noticed this as well?

miconazole nitrate (400MG) for Candida (atrophic)

This is the worst side effects I have ever had with any vaginal yeast infection insert. The itching and burning was even worse than my original mild symptoms. I have one taken one, I just need to get through tonight, and I am throwing the other two away. This should not be allowed on the market anyway. Horrible, just horrible.

I'll definitely recommend this to anyone who needs to treat a yeast infection. I got the pessaries when I got to the point where there was severe itching, burning and swelling. It was so uncomfortable and I needed something to make it stop fast. The first night I inserted the drug the itching and burning got worse but when I woke up I was a bit more comfortable as the symptoms had gone down....

zopiclone (7,5MG) for Insomnia

Leaves a really bad and bitter after taste in the morning that just won't go away. After a while, my tongue started to discolor and became white and swollen. Tastebuds are red and really sensitive and I don't enjoy food the way I used to. I did help me fall asleep in the beginning but after a while, the body gets used to it and you need a higher dosage. Now, after a year and a half, it doesn't ...
