Chronic fatigue syndrome, or CFS, is a poorly understood condition that can lead to exhaustion that is often severe enough to interfere with your daily activities. The condition has no definitive tests, and your doctor may only be able to diagnose it after ruling out other conditions. CFS often begins after another mild illness, and you may suddenly experience difficulty sleeping, feel tired most of the time, have difficulty concentrating or suffer from headaches, widespread joint or muscle pain and swollen or tender glands and a sore throat. Depression commonly occurs alongside chronic fatigue syndrome.
Lexapro withdrawal symptoms can, and will, appear if you stop taking the medication abruptly, even if you have only been taking it for a few weeks. Most doctors recommend and with prescribe a weaning or tapering dosage to decrease the likelihood of increased side effects. The Lexapro withdrawal symptoms can be quite unpleasant and harmful, especially if you have been taking a larger daily dose, and it is important to fully discuss the best course of action with your physician. Make sure that your family and/or friends are aware of the Lexapro withdrawal symptoms as well, so that they can keep an eye on you if you happen to be suffering them without your knowledge.
Lexapro is a medication that is used to treat anxiety and various forms of depression. It is formally classified as one of the widely accepted and used serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Lexapro is effective by altering the levels of serotonin in the brain, which can balance the levels in most people. It is important to know that they don’t work for everyone and you can still have the Lexapro withdrawal symptoms if it has not worked but you have been taking it for more than a couple weeks. Doctors can prescribe Lexapro for other disorders outside of anxiety and depression, but it is not approved for use besides these two conditions.
Almost 1 in 3 people that stop taking an SSRI, such as Lexapro, suffer one or more of the following withdrawal symptoms. By tapering off the dose with your physician you can minimize the likelihood of this happening. Common Lexapro withdrawal symptoms include: flu-like symptoms, fatigue, nausea, sleep interruption, dizziness, uncontrollable shaking, sensory alterations, increased anxiety, and headaches. One of the more rare, but more intense, Lexapro withdrawal symptoms is a sensation that is often referred to as a “brain shock”- a feeling that the head is being electrocuted. Most withdrawal symptoms disappear after a few days, but there have been cases where they have lasted over a month.
Discussing the discontinuation or change in dosage with your physician is the most effective way to reduce and even prevent the withdrawal symptoms. They will usually prescribe a gradual dosing down that will stretch over a few months, allowing your brain to adjust slowly to this change. The slower that you can let your brain adjust the less Lexapro withdrawal symptoms that you will have to experience.
I have been on Lexapro for 4 years. only 10mg. I have been taking about 4 or 5 pills a week. or every other day. but I feel weak and bad like flue symptons. Dr. said I could cut back on these I am 70 years old in Farley good shape, I also take a blood pressure pill. so am I messing up not taking them every day?
I thought I would answer as we are about the same age. I was taking Lexapro 10m.g for about two years, then after telling my doctor how depressed I felt it was increased to 20 m.g. One day I realized I was not feeling anything I wasn't sad I wasn't happy just blah and no ambition. So, started to wean myself off. After being a caregiver for years I knew how this should be done. However, I was impatient and now believe I did it too fast. I had most of the withdrawal signs listed. Flu-like symptoms, headaches. hot flashes, dizzy, couldn't eat because of stomach upset. this went on for about three weeks. I have felt very well now for about three days and forgot what the real me was like. I'm not giving medical advice here but for myself I am glad to be off the stuff and really wish I had never started it. I know now I should have gone very, very, very, slowly giving it up. I feel so good without it, wished I had done it sooner.
Weaning off off Lexapro is not a wonderful experience. The flu like symptoms are really strong. Headaches and head shakes as if I have fibromyalgia. It has been two weeks so far and the symptoms are still there! It is horrible! If you plan on weaning of the medication, please make sure you have nothing big going on in your life because you need to plan on the side effects.
I have weaned down from 20mg slowly over two months and have been on no lexapro for 3 weeks. I am 41, feel emotionally stable but the physical side effects are horrific. I have brain flashes, tingles in my face and hands, flu like lethargy and then insomnia, dry mouth and twitches in my neck. I was on lexapro for 3 years after post natal depression. I cannot believe how awful it is to try and work (I'm a contract chef/single parent supporting 3 children) and function in this state. I wish my doctor had no been so blasé as to using these tablets in the first place, let alone coming off them. I've read that fish oil supplements may help so have been taking those for 2 days. Good luck to anyone else experiencing this. I really hope it eases soon.
Jessica, When you say "Brain Flashes" do you mean you will have a Flash Mental image or thought then you can't figure out what it was?
I DEVELOPED A CARDIAC ARRHTHYMIA DUE TO A SIDE EFFECT OF LEXAPRO. THE CARDIOLOGIST FELT IT WAS MORE IMPORTANT TO STOP THE LEXAPRO ABRUPTLY. (I WAS TAKING 40MG DAILY FOR 10 YEARS). MY SIDE EFFECTS ARE HORRIFIC TO SAY THE LEAST. 'IRRITABLE' IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT. MY POOR DAUGHTER; IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH FOR ME TO SNAP, THEN THE TEARS FROM GUILT ARE HORRIBLE. I AM HAVING A HARD TIME CONVIENCING MYSELF THAT THIS WILL PASS AND KEEPING BELIEVING THAT LIFE WITHOUT ME WOULD BE MUCH BETTER FOR MY FAMILY. I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE MY LIFE I SIMPLY FEEL LIKE I'M HURTING THE PEOPLE I LOVE THE MOST. I'M A REGISTERED NURSE BUT AM ON A LEAVE OF ABSENCE UNTIL STABLE. I THOUGHT I SUFFERED FROM DEPRESSION, BUT RIGHT ABOUT NOW FEEL LIKE A PSYCHOPATH. MY SIDE EFFECTS INCLUDE: FLU LIKE SYMPTOMS, SHAKING, INSOMNIA, ANXIETY (WITH SEVERE HEART PALPATATIONS), AND IRRITABILITY. I WANT TO BE ABLE TO CONTROL HOW I FEEL AND ACT LIKE SO MANY TELL ME I CAN, BUT I CAN'T. MAYBE SOMEONE CAN GIVE ME WORDS OF ENCOURAGMENT THAT THIS WILL PASS. FOR THE PRAYFUL PLEASE KEEP ME AND MY FAMILY IN YOUR PRAYERS.
my heart and prayers for you. iam sad that they write scrips for this all the time.I work with people in recouvery.and see this allways

Treatment should be started as soon as possible, ideally within a few hours of being bitten or scratched.
But it's often safe to delay treatment until the next day if the vaccine and/or immunoglobulin need to be specially ordered in by your doctor.
Without treatment, the symptoms of rabies will usually develop after 3 to 12 weeks, although they can start sooner or much later than this.
The first symptoms can include:
- a high temperature (fever) of 38C (100.4F) or above
- a headache
- feeling anxious or generally unwell
- in some cases, discomfort at the site of the bite.
Other symptoms appear a few days later, such as:
Once symptoms appear, rabies is almost always fatal. In these cases, treatment will focus on making the person as comfortable as possible.
The UK has been rabies-free since the beginning of the 20th century, with the exception of a rabies-like virus in a species of wild bat called Daubenton's bats.
This has only been found in a few bats, and the risk of human infection is thought to be low. People who regularly handle bats are most at risk.
There has only been 1 recorded case of someone catching rabies from a bat in the UK. It's also rare for infected bats to spread rabies to other animals.
But if you find an injured or dead bat, don't touch it. Wear thick gloves if you need to move it.

Hahaha merveilleux. Est-ce qu’on peut s’attaquer aux “casse grippe” maintenant?
Moi ce qui m’énerve ce sont les erreurs dans la ponctuation: il faut mettre un espace avant et après un point d’exclamation, un point d’interrogation, les deux-points, un point-virgule. Je vais peut-être faire des “infographiques” (wtf? Olivier Bernard | January 30, 2014 at 2:22 pm | Reply
Un commentaire pédant, c’est déjà un début.
Merci pour ces capsules humoristiques de vulgarisation. En matière de typographie canadienne-française (et pas seulement québécoise), Le guide du rédacteur (publication fédérale), Le français au bureau (publication provinciale du Québec) et Le Ramat de la typographie stipulent que le point d’exclamation, le point d’interrogation et le point-virgule ne prennent pas d’espace avant, seulement après. Le français au bureau ajoute même que « si on dispose de l’espace fine*, il est conseillé de l’utiliser » ce que renchérit le Ramat, toujours avec humour et vulgarisation. Comme le Pharmachien!
* « Espace » est, en typographie, le mot qui désigne le blanc qui sépare les chaines de caractères et est féminin.
Je seconde. Par contre, l’encadré sur les risques décrits ci-haut concernant Deux filles le matin a failli m’envoyer à l’urgence.
Haha c’est vraiment bon ton diagramme!
J’adore ta façon d’expliquer la différence. À écouter certaines personnes, elles prétendent avoir en moyennes deux grippes par hiver…
Je vais partager ton arbre décisionnel dans mon entourage, peut être que certains finiront par comprendre la différence.
J’ai déjà entendu Dre Laberge (98.5) mentionner qu’une grippe nous frappe subitement contrairement a un rhume qui s’installe graduellement.
J’adore tes explications, les dessins humoristiques et que tout ne soit plus compliqué! Je cours acheter ton livre, il me le faut! Bravo!
J’imagine qu’il y en a comme moi qui ne font jamais de fièvre.. Je trouve ça bien mais moyennement utile quand tu vas voir le médecin.. Quand tu sais que t’as quelque chose de pas normal.. À l’hôpital, si tu fais pas de fièvre t’es pas réellement malade et tu te fais traiter comme si t’étais niaiseux ou niaiseuse.

Ceux-ci contiennent un deuxième virus grippal de type B en plus des virus contenus dans les vaccins trivalents classiques et devraient offrir une protection accrue contre les infections dues au virus grippal B. Un certain nombre de vaccins grippaux inactivés et de vaccins grippaux recombinants sont disponibles sous forme injectable. Le vaccin grippal vivant atténué est administré par voie intranasale.
La prophylaxie préexposition ou postexposition par antiviraux est possible mais dépend de plusieurs facteurs, à savoir: facteurs individuels, type d’exposition, et risque lié à l’exposition.
Outre la vaccination et le traitement antiviral, la prise en charge en santé publique comporte l’application de mesures individuelles de protection, à savoir:
- se laver systématiquement les mains et les sécher correctement;
- respecter une bonne hygiène respiratoire: se couvrir la bouche et le nez lorsque l’on tousse ou éternue, utiliser des mouchoirs en papier et les jeter avec discernement;
- placer en auto isolement précoce les personnes qui ne se sentent pas bien, qui sont fiévreuses et qui présentent d’autres symptômes de la grippe;
- éviter les contacts proches avec des malades;
- éviter de se toucher les yeux, le nez ou la bouche.
Par l’intermédiaire du Système mondial OMS de surveillance de la grippe et de riposte et en collaboration avec ses partenaires, l’Organisation suit la situation mondiale de la grippe, recommande deux fois par an la composition du vaccin contre la grippe saisonnière pour les hémisphères Nord et Sud, aide les pays des régions tropicales et sous-tropicales à choisir la formulation de leur vaccin de manière à appuyer les décisions relatives au calendrier des campagnes de vaccination et à soutenir les États Membres désireux d’élaborer des stratégies pour prévenir et combattre la maladie.
L’OMS s’efforce de renforcer les capacités nationales, régionales et mondiales en matière de diagnostic de la grippe, de surveillance de la susceptibilité antivirale, de surveillance de la maladie, d’actions en cas de flambée, d’augmenter la couverture vaccinale dans les groupes à haut risque et de se préparer à faire face à la prochaine pandémie de grippe.

Question: What are the symptoms of swine flu, and when do I need to see a doctor?
Answer: The symptoms of swine influenza actually resemble, reasonably closely those of annual influenza – and we all know about fever, feeling badly, muscle aches and pains, sore throat, particularly older children and young adults can get a cough, a dry cough. And so, those are really rather typical. You don't have to have them all to have swine influenza.
Now in addition, swine influenza does differ from regular influenza in one respect. It involves the intestinal tract, and so about a third of people have a combination of nausea, maybe a little bit of abdominal pain and diarrhea. Isn't that unusual? Shows you that this is a different virus.
When should you call your doctor? When you're ill of course. That's the time to call your healthcare provider particularly so if you have an underlying immune compromising illness, or heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, if your child has asthma. Those are things that may prompt you to call your doctor right away.

- les associations de chasseurs doivent informer leurs membres sur la manière de détecter la grippe aviaire tout en rappelant que la maladie est souvent asymptomatique chez les oiseaux sauvages; lorsque des oiseaux meurent en grand nombre ou dans une même zone, on peut souvent en déduire que l'on est en présence de l'influenza aviaire,
- il ne faut pas manipuler les oiseaux morts sans protection adéquate (gants, sacs en plastique ou autre protection des mains),
- tous les chasseurs doivent signaler les oiseaux morts de manière suspecte ou en grand nombre aux services vétérinaires (ou équivalent local) qui se chargeront de les récupérer et de procéder à des analyses de laboratoire utiles.
