If you have any significant side effects, such as mental or emotional problems (such as restlessness, disorientation, or hallucinations), shaking (tremors), difficulties urinating, or a rapid or irregular heartbeat, contact your doctor straight once. These may be signs of serious problems that need to be diagnosed and treated promptly.
Hydroxyzine can cause people who take it to become agitated or anxious, but this effect is usually not severe. Hydroxyzine can also cause dry mouth and drowsiness, but these effects are rarely severe. People who take hydroxyzine for long periods may find themselves slowing down on its effects, so they must continue to take it daily to stay calm and focused.
The most common side effects of hydroxyzine include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, blurred vision, dizziness, headache, depression, anxiety, nervousness, irritability, trouble sleeping, tingling sensations, rash, or urinary frequency. These are often mild symptoms that go away after you start taking the drug. But if you experience any symptoms that worry you or do not go away, tell your doctor immediately.
Hydroxyzine is used to treat anxiety disorders, chronic stress, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and certain other psychological conditions. It does not cure these problems but simply treats their symptoms.
Inform your doctor right away if you experience any of the following serious side effects: dark urine, easy bruising/bleeding, fast/pounding/irregular heartbeat, seizures, unusual weakness/tiredness, yellowing of the eyes or skin, change in the amount of urine, chest pain, difficulty breathing, mental/mood changes (such as confusion), loss of consciousness. If you experience any of these symptoms, call your doctor immediately.
Ceftriaxone may cause fatigue and muscle weakness. You should tell your doctor if you feel fatigued or if you have muscle weakness during treatment with this drug. Your condition may also develop insomnia, irritability, anxiety, depression, headache, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, dry mouth, back pain, hot flashes, fever, chills, cough. These are all possible side effects of ceftriaxone that may require medical attention.
Ceftriaxone is usually well tolerated. However, like any other medication, it can cause side effects when taken together with other drugs, such as warfarin, salicylates, thiazides, tetracyclines, antihistamines, tramadol, acetaminophen. Discuss potential interactions with your doctor before starting treatment with ceftriaxone.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, consult your doctor right away: agitation, confusion, decreased urine output, depression, dizziness, headache, hostility, irritability, lethargy, muscle twitching, nausea, rapid weight gain, seizures, stupor, swelling of the face, ankles, or hands, or unusual tiredness or weakness. Some people develop a severe allergic reaction to ranolazine. If this happens, stop taking it and call your doctor immediately.
Ranolazine reduces the activity of certain enzymes in your blood. It has been found to cause mild decreases in white blood cell counts, platelets, and hemoglobin levels. These changes are usually not a concern for most patients but could indicate an increased risk of bleeding if you take ranolazine with other medications that can also decrease these blood components.
Do not take ranolazine if you have an active infection, such as a cold or the flu. Otherwise, there are no known interactions with anything else you might be taking.
Ranolazine may not work for everyone. It has been used successfully to treat chronic pain but has not been approved by the FDA for this purpose. It has also been used unsuccessfully to treat acute pain (lasting less than one year) caused by heart attacks or strokes.
So far, no studies have shown ranolazine to be harmful.
