I am to the point where I take the ADHD stimulants, (VYVANSE - 70 mgX1 or 2, or 3 during the day) and/or Adderall. This is obvious signs of drug addiction/dependency/abuse. I know. Again - Without ADHD medications or antidepressants I still feel as terrible as I do while taking the ADHD medications. I understand this seems like I am being impossible, but I really cannot help but express what I have been feeling and thinking for the past who knows how long. Everything I say is completely true.
I have been taking Celexa and adderall together for about a year now and things have been working great. My only problem has been the sexual side-effects which have made my sex drive almost nothing. Because I entered into a serious relationship within these past couple months my doctor and I started discussing potential drugs that would increase my libido. She suggested Buspar. However, I have only been taking Buspar for two days and feel like it is having a counteractive affect on my adderall.
I've taken Celexa with Provigil alone, with Adderall alone, and currently am taking Celexa with Adderall and Provigil both. The Provigil was added to treat sedation; later on my psychiatrist felt that Adderall would be preferable to Provigil because it would treat mild attention problems as well as sedation. (I did find Adderall to be a bit better for attention. However, this is more a concern of my doctor's than of mine! Whatever attention problems I have are mild.
IF IT IS AFTER HOURS THEY WILL PAGE YOUR DOCTOR OR WHOEVER IS ON CALL. THERE IS A SERIOUS INTERACTION SOMETIMES CAUSED WHEN TAKING ADDERRALL AND CELEXA! CELEXA POTENTIATES THE AFFECTS OF ADDERRALL - AN AMPHETIMINE! CAUSING MANY OF THE SYMPTOMS YOU ARE HAVING... TOU MUST COMMUNICATE THIS TO YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY. I AM A NURSE, BUT I KNOW OF THIS.
The combination of drugs, citalopram that is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor and amphetamine and dextroamphetamine that are dopamine and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor is not recommended. Amphetamines may possess serotonergic activity and should not be administered with SSRIs as there is an additive risk of serotonin syndrome. Enhanced sympathomimetic effects is possible.
I'm adhd and GAD I am currently on adderal and celexa has been added. I hate antidepressant medications because they make me manic. Does anyone have this problem? Im thinking I may have a little bipolar even though my pdoc said he didn't see any signs.
anyways i then stop the medication, which i had no problem stopping at all since i slowly went from two 20 mg of adderall a day for each 8 hours class in the morning and night. To one pill and day, to one pill every other day, till nothing at all. SO don't think it's like taking (CRACK COCAINE) and almost impossible to stop.
I am concerned that she is addicted and will have withdrawal problems. I have hidden the adderall from her and she no longer has it available. She relizes that she has a problem and has commited to quit. What are the withdrawal symptoms, how soon after she has quit to they show, how long to they last and how can I help.
The antidepressants did not work and made him extremely beligerant. He is still on the clonidine and hid dr prescibed Adderall for attention and behavior. Does anyone have any experience with this drug and autistic or pdd children? I am alittle worried about ticks, but the dr. said that the clonidine, which is a tick suppresant, should couteract it. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
I also take celexa and wellbutrin for depression and adderal was introduced because i was becoming depressed again feeling unmotivated and frankly lethargic....i worry i am doing a "bad" thing to my head....any feedback would be appreciated....
Im 26 and have been taking adderall for a couple years. I get 60 pills a month. Im suppose to take 2 10mg pills a day every month I get my prescription and I take them all over a course of 1 week. Ive always had depression problems and major anxiety. I dont have adhd problems, I think its a combo of depression and anxiety. When I take them for that week it seems to get rid of my problems, but also kills my senses and emotions. It puts my mind into zombie mode and I feel like a ghost.
Well its been 5 days since i have taken any pills....Im feeling very non energetic and very depressed. I already knew that i would feel this way bc i have tried quitting many of times before but i cant stand being like this and i want help on dealing with these affects...I have NO motivation at all while im at work...I just want to sleep all the time and im very depressed...Its just very hard to deal with everyday life and the stress without my pills....
I am a 48 yr old female diagnosed with recurring severe depression. When I am not taking my meds, I am tired, can sleep all day, am completely unmotivated to do anything and do not want to socialize with anyone. I have tried several different meds and am currently taking Celexa and Adderall XR. My psy says that adding the Adderall will "kick in the Celexa" and make it work better. I have a love/hate realationship with the Adderall.
Right now im on intuniv and trileptal and recently came off celexa after being on it for 2 years i felt like it did not do much anymore. I have beens struggling with adhd (not realy), depression. I have switched and been on alot of medications including the first one adderall which i gained weight on. After being chubbie and coming off i became normal reasonable weight and was happy. And no all of a sudden im 160lbs. An ideal weight was 146 but it just came on.
We all respond differently to these types of medications, and what one experiences may not be what another does. I take Celexa and Klonopin with excellent results. There is a period of adjustment when starting an antidepressant, and it takes 4-6 weeks to feel the full benefit of it. Hope this helps and take care!
I am on 60mg of Celexa and was wondering the best way to taper off. I have a psychiatrist and he is aware. He told me we'll keep going down 10mg per month, but from what I've been reading that doesn't seem to be the correct way. I have been feeling nauseous and have a horrible headache on the left side of my head, it's only the 3rd day I've been on 50mg. Any suggestions?
i smoke weed every day and take celexa, valium, tricor, omeprozole, plavix and amlodapin 4 various ailments . does anyone out there know about prochlorperazine? is it safe to take to get high?
Prozac and Paxil both significantly block the pathway for the metabolism of Adderall and all the amphetamine products. [Wellbutrin and Cymbalta can block 2D6 at their higher doses.] If you take either of these two antidepressants together with an amphetamine, just watch out. You can significantly become overdosed on the amphetamine and suffer significant side effects. Often this interaction can unpredictably occur several months later.
After that, I took the Celexa and my Adderall and now I'm feeling really strange. My mouth and eyes feel really really twitchy and my neck sort of does too. Oh, and my legs are twitchy as well. My hands feel sort of shaky and I'm feeling a bit queasy. My legs are shaky too. Mentally, I feel awake and alert (I slept for 8 hours last night) but I feel like my body either hasn't slept for days or is trapped in an igloo. It's that sort of cold, shaky, weak feeling.
I've been taking adderall (at reasonable doses, but it's not my prescription), for a couple months now, and on and off for most of a year. My dose and dependency level are both higher than they have been in the past, and I'm planning to start a family, so I need to quit, and I've scheduled winter vacation to do that. However, as of the last time I stopped (lost access for a short time), I tend to become delusional and depressed to the point of suicidality when I'm in withdrawal from the stuff.
I changed my diet completely and exercise regularly and now I am pretty lean at 215lbs (it still sounds like a lot of weight to me but I wear a 34 pants and high shoulder to waist ratio) I have normal BP 118/76 and my cholesterol is normal. any way, I also for the last 4 years have had major depression and anxiety and take 20mg Celexa and 1mg Klonapin daily. Since getting on the Adderall I still eat the same 5 small meals daily but I've dropped 5lbs in 9days (is that pretty normal to expect?
hi ok i was put on concerta 36mg about 2 weeks ago and weened off of zoloft 200 mg and put on at the same time 10 now 20 mg of celexa. the first week i was feeling great!! was finally sleeping well, woke up energized and moods were stable. than this week i went down hill. i felt like i was on crack all day!! my brain was foggy, yet overstimulated. couldnt interpret what people were wanting from me. i heard them but just panic mode set in.
I'm a 39 year old woman diagnosed with ADHD, Depression, Anxiety for which I take Adderall, Celexa and Valium. I am addicted heavily to my Adderall, I take triple the amount a day. I used to take Xanax, but switched to Valium because I was eating the Xanax like candy. The valium doesn't seem to affect me the same way, I take my regular dose, sometimes not at all. I drink alcohol alot and when I run out of Adderall I snort cocaine. Aren't I just a friggin mess?
Celexa can be taken at night and is rather safe.
I currently take Levothyroxine 88mcg(μg) in the morning and 2 doses of Adderall (instant release, not XR) 20mg - one in the morning before classes and the second one whenever I need it depending on my classes that day or things I need to work on. I also later added Celexa 20mg which helped a lot with the anxiety and mood swings - especially from the "crash" of the Adderall. But with ADD meds, no one can tell you what will work best for you, or what dosage, before you try it.
Then, about 2 ½ years ago I had a near-psychotic meltdown, mostly about the devil and evil spirits, and was diagnosed with OCD and prescribed Anafranil and Zyprexa, which helped with the irrational thinking and obsessive thoughts a little. Between now and then, I have been diagnosed with OCD, Social anxiety disorder, GAD, major depressive disorder, ADHD, and most recently, aspergers/high functioning autism.
However, if you're taking a more sedating SSRI (which CYMBALTA might actually be) then your lethargy and fatigue symptoms do not surprise me. I take CELEXA , another SSRI, and I get fatigue from it. I don't know much about ABILIFY, just what I've read. If I were you, I'd call my Doc and let him/her know of your reaction to the combo you're on. It could be that your meds need to be re-adjusted OR maybe you need something else?
