My first question is What do you think of this Medifast menu for dinner with my in laws? Many thanks for any comment. 2nd question I got is.. Hi all,.

I am stationed in the Army in Germany and the dr. I see knows nothing about the GBS. I went in to get on meds for depression and she doesnt know what to prescribe me. I told her I would find out and let her know. What can our bodies handle and what works well? Please let me know. THE dr.


Only speaks German so I dont get the answers I need. Please help..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could help you..

O thank you I have been searching the web looking for answers. I am almost six months out and dont really have a problem eating anything so I dont think I will have too many problems with pills. I just need help mentally right now. Thank you again..

Hi Katt,.

I am on.


And wellbuterine- the clinic that does my.


Told me to divide them into pencil eraser size before swallowing. I was told not to divide any extended release or time release meds, but others can be spit and swallowed with liquid or added to applesauce..

It might take awhile to find the right med for your chemistry. Took me awhile to figure out what really helped and how much..

Good Luck,.

I have been on psychotropic meds for a decade from the get-go I was advised NO TIME RELEASED OR ENTERIC COATED MEDS. They will not be effective with our new plumbing. You can take whichever anti-depressant which works for you so long as it is prescribed in pill form or in small-dose capsules to be taken at least 2x per day. Even with these precautions there will be some trial-and-error involved with getting the dosage right. Unfortunately what is available in Europe is not the same as in the US, so it is difficult to refer you to a good English language resource. Normally I would refer you to the Physician's Desk Reference If you can get your hands on a copy or access it on line you can find out about every prescription drug on the planet, including what forms and dosages it comes in...

Hi Katt,.

I've continued using.


For the past few years. Before GBS I took the capsules, after GBS I opened the capsules into applesauce, but now at 10 months I'm back to capsules and it seems to work alright for me. Just make sure they doc doesn't give you a sustained or slow release formulation, or as said above, enteric coated..

Good luck.

Hey Katt -looking great GF!!.

My Dr. told me that I could continue taking.


But no the xr...

Comment #6

I was on.


(the one that was time released) and she took me off of it cause of the time release part of it. I am now currently on.


Comment #7

I take.




And regular.


(not XR) and haven't had any problems. They took me off of the XR right at.


Time. I think you can take any antidepressants that aren't time released..

Good luck!..

Comment #8

Hi everyone, thank you for all your responses. The dr. put me on Effecor XR told me to poor half of it in a cup in the morning and the other half at night. Is there a reason not to take the time released? I may have to call her and get the prescription without the XR?.


Comment #9

We dont have enough digestive tract or stomach space to allow extended-release meds to disperse properly into our systems. A change to regular.


Will work. I personally would caution against opening capsules or crushing - for me it was like injecting the stuff into my system like speed. Again, your mileage may vary so trial-and-error will be the key to success...
