Generic Drug Variences
It's all about the M-O-N-E-Y ! , share prices going up , dividends increasing , like adding old cars to massive piles of scrap , can't make much off of them and generics . They get the goons to be fooled in thinking " Brand Names " are better , like " Brand Name " bottled water and Tap , H20 is H20 even a Dog will tell you that . Combine that with Insurers and Drug Stores , what do you expect ? Pretty soon ( if not already ) Generic Mnftrs. will be working " hand in hand " with Generics , just

Parkinsons Symptoms While On Xanax
I had been on anxiolytics and felt like a piece of shit when i quit. But now I am perfectly fine and have recovered all the strength and confidence. It is just a matter of time before you regain all your strength and confidence.
You are doing great  |  October 4, 2014
After much research, I've found that high doses of Xanax taken for a long time are the biggest culprits to permanent damage or long-term withdrawals.

If you stopped abruptly, you may have caused yourself more discomfort than necessary. My research shows that 1mg daily rarely if ever causes permanent damage. Try meditation, yoga and breathing exercises while you creep through this tunnel -- and may it be short and over soon. I think you will be fine although your thinking in a fearful way may

I can see this ---definetly things about aparalzom or xanax that i am experieencing that are like parkinsonian symptoms. I stopped and am having extreme weakness in hands and shaking. I am scared I have damaged myself permanently and I was only taking 1mg daily.

Can you prove it was from the drug? I'm sure there are lawyers that handle these cases that could help you get it paid for PLUS pain and suffering.

There is an herb that actually helps called kratom. That isn't the actual name of the herb more the brand that carries it, but it was amazingly helpful for me coming off of opiates.
Gina  |  September 8, 2014
...for some reason it cut my comment short?! But do you know of anyone that the Imogaine worked for?? I must check into these herbs, though not sure if they are legal in Europe. But thanks for your post really honest and informative...keep up the good work on getting to the place where you need to be :)
benzobuzzer  |  August 12, 2014
Hey Thanks for your contribution, I was also in a similar situation to you, though I have never tried the Ibogaine route and have always been interested in trying it out. I've gone cold turkey so many times from alcohol, drugs and the rest...but have always ended back on some slippery slopes. The last time which I am still battling also involves an injury where opiates and benzs were prescribed I am now one again stuck in this rut. Do you know of anyone whom the Ibogaine was actually a successf

HIDA Scan
I was allowed to take Xanax before mine because I was over the top woth nerves. In fact, in addition to the 1 MG I took before I left for the test, I asked the nurse if I could take another after the injection...she let me even tho she said it was a waste, the test was no big deal. Which it wasn't but I can't control my anxiety.

took gabapentin 900 mg my blood pressure went so high to 188 when it was normal before. having difficulty getting it back down
Irene  |  December 11, 2014
Patricia, I had a very strong reaction to primidone when I took my first tablet. Dizziness didn't begin to describe it. My doc had me skip the next night, then start again with a much reduced dosage. I started with 1/4 of a 50-mg tablet and that was OK. Gradually increased to 150 mg, then added 20 mg nadolol, and that was it - have been on that combination for many year, and unless I am sick or very upset my tremor is nonexistent.

Hope you are better. I tried this mixture without much success. I am now going back to Lyrika. It helped within days using a fraction of the gaba and cym mixture.

Maybe you needed a higher dose. I started at 100 my a day if Gabapentin for RLS. Now I am taking 300 me 2xs a day. Works for the most part but do still have bad nights. Good luck.

Can you share which brand did not work?
Katinka  |  October 25, 2014
Yes!! I have had nightmarish pain and muscle spasms return when pharmacies had jerked me around on different generic brands. I went through my bottles (had been too sick to throw them away) to find the one taken at last time I felt ok. I then started insisting on Greenstone only. Insist on that one. I found out later it is put out by Pfizer. Otherwise, hope you have ins. that will cover Pfizer's Neurontin. If not, apply to Pfizer to see if you qualify to get it free. Please don't suffer like I

I had the same problem when I was given the Sandoz brand, I nearly went ballistic. It has happened with other medication on as we call them generic labels. I always insist on the original medication.
