Femoston

08/04/2022 | | 70moderated by Philip
dydrogesterone, estradiol hemihydrate (1/5MG) for Menopause

I have been on this HRT treatment for years. I have no side effects at all and can thoroughly recommend. Hot flushes and night sweats stopped after about a week and have never returned (unless I leave it too long before starting the next 28-day cycle). I take Femoston 1/10.

NiQuitin

nicotine resinate (7MG/24UUR) for Stop smoking

Very poor quality compared with a rival brand. Does not stick to skin as it should. It is meant to do two things: stick to skin, release nicotine. It fails at one of those, and I'm not sure it succeeds at the other. A rival brand is infinitely better.

Zopiclone

zopiclone (7,5MG) for Anxiety & panic disorder

I would like to share my experience with zopiclone. It has really helped me in two episodes of general anxiety. I took one pill before bed for almost 6 months. When i felt more at ease, i started to tapper off slowly during two months, till the point where i reached a quarter of the pill. Then i knew it was already placebo. I started to sleep well on my own again. Thank God. No withdrawl effect...

Zoely

estradiol hemihydrate, nomegestrol acetate (1,5/2,5MG) for Contraception / birth control

Zoely worked great as a birth control pill, but without even realising it at first, it started to change me. I felt depressed for the first few months, which luckily went away. My libido was very low. My brain felt fuzzy like I wasn't really paying full attention.

Has anyone else felt like they drugged or been out onto night out on 7 5 of this drug . I have high anxiety so I was put on this after I had a stroke in March 2021 . Since then sleep is there but not all way through the night. I feel sick and tired all time... anyone else had this?

Citalopram

citalopram hydrobromide (20mg ) for Anxiety & panic disorder

I've been on citalopram for more than 12 years, I dropped to a 10mg after having my child. Now due to anxiety my doctor put me up to a 20mg and I'm nearly 2 weeks in to taken them and my anxiety is through the roof... my mornings are the worst and I'm finding it hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel as it is so intense. I've never had side effects from upping my medication and I think ...

Valdoxan

agomelatine (50MG) for Depression

I've found valdoxan very helpful , I've not had any alcohol in 60days, , You realy have to want to stop heavy drinking as well , valdoxan helps me with the anxiousness once I detoxed from alcohol, as I used alcohol to medicate myself with anxiety issue's.

Fostair

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (100) for Asthma

Thanks for this comment, I was beginning to think, am I only one with problems with this inhaler. Too often I suck and nothing goes in-which causes confusion, as I don't want to double dose. And the particles and grains used in the formula are to big. I am thinking of changing this inhaler for somethng else that is more efficient and regular.

beclometasone dipropionate, formoterol fumarate dihydrate (6) for Asthma

Fostair works well when it works BUT the counter is useless! my current one has just run out with thee counter still reading 64 doses left. This happens with about half of the inhalers I use, It's easy to prove, when you inhale and are still struggling for breath open a new one and see the difference, instant relief, I believe this is either a design problem or a storage problem. Fostair is sup...

Flucloxacillin

flucloxacillin sodium (500MG) for Ear piercing infection

Its awful. Gave me bad gerd. I take them and if I fall asleep I wake up with burning burps and it's hard to breath it burns so much. What is this medication? I thought I was going to die. I have severe anxiety so waking up feeling my chest throat and lungs on fire was terrifying. So I warn you. Don't take then fall asleep, unless you'd like to experiment that is. It's really bad and your burps...

Zoely

estradiol hemihydrate, nomegestrol acetate (1,5/2,5MG) for Contraception / birth control

Love love love this pill! I was on Levlen ED for 6 months and it was the worst time of my life - literally an emotional cyclone of uncontrollable hell with breakthrough bleeding and lowered libido. I then went to Yaz, which was a little better on the mood swings comparatively - libido was the same. And then my Gyno recommend Zoely and oh, HOT DAMMMMMMMN! So so so grateful I ignored the bad revi...

agomelatine (50mg) for Chronic depression

I find it makes me feel very angry, impatient and overall horrible. I was taken fluoxetine for about 20 years. My gp decided it was too long and changed it. Not sure I'm impressed with it

Fluanxol

flupentixol dihydrochloride (100MG/ML) for Drug addiction

This medication has ruined my life and taking away all my creative outlooks and views I had in life. Removed goals I had set in my plans to my future. Terminated my company and business. Personality changed to dull boring lifestyle as you lose all motivation or enjoyable tasks in life. I don't enjoy anything in my life at all any more. Anything you once enjoyed too work on, draw, create, think ...

Utovlan

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

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 (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

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

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.

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.
