Apr 19, 2017 · Withdrawal from Lexapro, Welbutrin, Lyrica, prescribed Ziprasidone. in Depression & Anxiety

I was put on anti depressants around 2005 or so to help with symptoms of menopause. I tried a few different kinds but took Lexapro for quite awhile, I was told it wasn’t addictive but finally in 2008 I decided I wanted to get off the drug. I slowly cut my dosage but suffered side effects such as anxiety and a tingling feeling in the back of my head. Finally that all stopped but it took a few months and I have never taken an anti depressant since! Don’t ever want to go through that again. It is important to keep your doctor informed of your symptoms and go slowly, but for me it finally paid off. Good luck and remember if you aren’t comfortable with your doctor’s advice it’s a good idea for a second opinion

Feb 22, 2017 · Aortic Stenosis & Valve Replacement in Heart & Blood Health

Hello, I was diagnosed with bicuspid aortic stenosis last september. At that time my cardiologist wanted to do open heart immediately but i got another opinion from a well know university of wisconsin cardiologist. She did her own tests and said i was moderate borderline severe and am going back for another echo next month. Anyone have the surgery and what type? Also needing to decide which type of valve is daunting. Im looking for others who might offer their experience. Thank you so much
