Question: I got the Depo Provera shot at the end of February and have been bleeding/spotting ever since and was wondering it there is anything i could do to make it stop. I've read to take vitamin c, ibprofin, evening primrose oil, and am now wondering if St. John's Wort might help because i've read it decreases the effictiveness of birth control.

I'm not exactly sure what you could do to help the side effects, but my doctor told me she would prefer not to give the Depo shot to women since it took 4 months to reverse any side effects that may be experienced (which can get pretty ugly). I wouldn't take any kind of vitamin or supplement until you've talked to your doctor and see what he/she recommends. Some of those could have even more adverse reactions when combined with the Depo. Better safe than sorry!

I drink soy milk all the time cause im lactose and I dont have any stomach pains. I think it could be a mere coincidence, however it is possible to have an allergy to soy, so if it continues just have him tested for soy allergies.

He could be allergic to soy products. Try eliminating all soy from his diet for a few days. If he improves take him to an allergy doctor to confirm the diagnosis. His stomach could also just be sensitive to soy products. I'm lactose intolerant so I drink soy milk daily and have no side effects whatsoever. Hope this helps! =)

Do not take St. Johns medicine with birth control unless you won't a child. I am on Depo Provera it is normally to spot you the first 3 months the vitamin c is good for you anyway but it don't help with the depo. After you get your second shot the spotting should stop. Oh beware you will gain weight if you don't won't to gain weight get off right away. I was 125 through high school and my freshman year in college now I am a junior i weigh 176

St John's wort is for depression.. but i get what your saying about decreasing effects of depo provera.. defeating the purpose of having it in the first place? when i was bleeding a lot on the shot my doctor gave me cyclokapron / methanamic acid .. you take it 4days then break then depending on whether or not your still bleeding the following week 3 - 4 days again. It worked for me

Oli Originally Answered: Serious Side Effects of Lamictal?
I have never scene something as severe with people taking Lamictal (and I have scene a lot of patients who take it, even I take it). Normally Lamictal is considered to be, like your neurologist said, one of the most effective medications with the fewest side effects. In fact aside from a rare and very serious condition called Stevens-Johnson syndrome which is basically a very bad rash than can potentially kill Lamictal typically have almost no side effects in the majority of people except some mild sedation. The side effects you list like asasthenia (abnormal loss of strength), nausea/vomiting, somnolence (abnormally drowsy), flu like syndrome, diarrhea, abdominal pain, depression, and vaginitis (irritation, redness, and swelling) are listed as "common reactions" so you are not having any extreme, life threatening, or anything unheard of effects but what you are describing certainly sounds like hell. How long has it been going on for? What dose do you take? Did your doctor titrate the dose (slowly increase the dose, typically by 25 mg/week)? Are you having any more seizures? When did you start the Lamictal? So to more directly answer you the side effects may be "common" but what you are talking about in terms of the severity and the number of side effects is not typical. What it really boils down to is if you can't tolerate them, especially if you have been on the medication for several weeks you can TELL (don't ask) your doctor you want off. It is once thing to have some mild side effects or even some terrible side effects for a few days but I assume this is really impacting your life and you should not have to deal with this. And when a doctor says a side effect is minor but it is terrible for you then it is not minor. I don't know what type of epilepsy you have but there are a lot of anticonvulsants, not all of which may be used for your type of epilepsy,like Tegretol (carbamazepine), Depakote (divalproex sodium), Trileptal (oxcarbazepine), Topamax (topiramate), Neurontin (gabapentin), Phenobarbital, Klonopin/Rivotril (clonazepam), Primidone, Tranxene (clorazepate), Gabitril (tiagabine), Phenytoin, Frisium (clobazam)- non available in The US and many more. If you can you might consider getting a second opinion or even go to your general practitioner (pediatrician). A pediatrician is not a specialist but a lot of the time it can be helpful talking it over with another doctor.
