Symbyax is used to treat depressive episodes in association with bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder. The medication is designed to be used by patients that are resistant or have little to no improvement of their symptoms with other medications.
Symbyax combines active ingredients from two other medications, the antidepressant fluoxetine from Prozac and the antipsychotic olanzapine from Zyprexa. Inactive ingredients include pregelatinized starch, gelatin, dimethicone, titanium dioxide, sodium lauryl sulfate, edible black ink, red iron oxide, yellow iron oxide, and/or black iron oxide.
Because Symbyax contains two different active ingredients, the dosage of the medication is different compared to other prescription medications. Symbyax is also approved for use in children as young as 10 years old.
Adult patients typically start with the lowest dose at 6mg of olanzapine/25mg of fluoxetine. Children start with 3 mg of olanzapine/25mg of fluoxetine. The medication should be taken in the evening just before bedtime.
Symbyax comes in the following dosages:
- 3 mg/25 mg
- 6 mg/25 mg
- 6 mg/50 mg
- 12 mg/25 mg
- 12 mg/50 mg
Unlike AnxiClear which doesn’t have any known side effects or interactions with other medication, Symbyax has a long list. The most common side effects are:
- Bloating or swelling of the face, arms, hands, lower legs, or feet
- body aches or pain
- dryness or soreness of the throat
- rapid weight gain
- runny nose
- shakiness in the legs, arms, hands, or feet
- tender, swollen glands in the neck
- tingling of the hands or feet
- trembling or shaking of the hands or feet
- trouble with swallowing
- unusual weight gain or loss
- voice changes
There may be other unfavorable side effects associated with the Symbyax. Symbyax also interacts with similar medications and other over the counter medications.
By using a natural ingredient product like AnxiClear you can avoid these unwanted side effects and interactions.
Will This Product Produce Long-Term Results?
Symbyax takes about 4 weeks for patients to see an improvement in their symptoms while AnxiClear can produce improvements in as little as one week.
Prices for Symbyax vary from pharmacy to pharmacy. A 30 day prescription can cost as low as $181 while other pharmacies charge over $300 for the medication.
Symbyax is a prescription medication; therefore it does not come with any money-back guarantee.
However you can report unwanted side effects or other issues to the FDA. The FDA has established a reporting service called MedWatch. Health care professionals and consumers can call to report any problems they believe may be related to the prescription medication they are using by calling 1-800-FDA-1088.
Conclusion – Symbyax
Symbyax’s long list of adverse side effects can be quite worrisome as well as the out of pocket expense of a brand name prescription medication.
