Latuda is the best thing to take while pregnant!!!!!
Hi, I'm so excited for you and your family!! I am also on Latuda and have had a great pregnancy so far, it sounds like your pregnancy was great too and I have another question for you, I noticed on my prescription bottle yesterday that it said Latuda could cause the baby severe withdrawals, did you have an issue with this? I would love to hear from you, Thank you in advance!

provigil vs. adderall for ADD and bipolar
Provigil is long term sustaining so is Nuvigil. Nuvigil is designed with the purpose to increase short term, long term memory and increase awareness and increase concentration.

Throat on fire!
I used prozac 1st in the 80s. Started having stomach and ephogus and throat burning. Was treated for GERD. No improvement. When I finally discontinued Prozac the burning slowly went away. Stopped GERD meds for a couple yrs. Went back on Prozac and the severe burning started again after several days. Have stopped Prozac ... burning stopped. Prozac helped my depression and II really want to take but just can't endure the burning. Even kept me awake at night. Oh, when I told drs about they

I also experienced the same burning sensation, when I swalloed the flouxetine pill, and it lasted for over two hours. I drank hot tea and coffee I thought thathot liquid helped releive the burning that I felt in my throat.
