Common Questions and Answers about Celexa and benadryl


My doctor has prescribed my ilight>celexailight> for panic with agoraphobia ilight>andilight> severe anxiety. i'm scared to take the meds because i also have a phobia of medications, fear i will have an allergic reaction and die. Have you heard of anyone being alllergic to celexa?
My doctor just switched me from ilight>celexailight> to Wellbutron. i was gaining weight ilight>andilight> she thought this would help. She told me to stop the celexa and start the other. This has been almost 2 weeks ago and i am going through the most horrible withdrawl symptoms. i don't know how long this is supposed to go on, but i am really getting worried. i am dizzy and feeling like i am going to throw up. i have that "jolt" feeling going through me and i am finding it hard to function.
i really think i need to take something for the everyday anxiety. i did ask on another post about xanax ilight>andilight> ilight>celexailight> ilight>andilight> they said it was fine. Does anyone know about this combo. if i start the celexa i just want to be sure i can still have the xanax if i get an attack. i'm so afraid to take the celexa because of the side effects. i too paxil a few years ago and go horrible side effects. The worse was the lack of sleep.
Most of the other medication (effexor, Prozac, Zoloft) produce side effects which i did not care for. My doctor ilight>andilight> i finally gave ilight>celexailight> a try. i was taking low dosages (10mg daily) of ilight>celexailight> and i was doing fine. A few months back my doctor suggested i try Lexapro. i have found that most of the bad side effects of celexa have been eliminated with this new and so far wonderful medication, i am currently taking 10mg Lexapro daily.
i went to the dermatologist and they gave me a shot of cortisone ilight>andilight> told me to take ilight>benadrylilight> The itching has persisted ilight>andilight> is keeping me up at night. As i checked side affects for any medication i've been taking and i see the itching is a side affect of the drug, but everyone that has this condition has experienced the itching after they were on the Wellbutrin for awhile. Will my itching stop. i feel great except for the itching.
During all this i started a new job and i would lay in bed at night ilight>andilight> have bad anxiety ilight>andilight> panic attacks ilight>andilight> i could not sleep . i stated taking .5 alprazolam ilight>andilight> it helped for a little while then nothing. My dr. Started me on ambien and lunesta with little relief from either drug. The i started 100mg of trazadone with my .5 alprazolam. i started with a quarter of the trazadone .25 and quickly went all the way up to 200. and still it was a coin toss if i was going to sleep or not.
Hi Kristina. i did a 10 second drug interaction check online and the result was one Moderate interaction. "Applies to: benadryl (diphenhydramine), celexa (citalopram) Using diphenhydramine together with citalopram may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications.
i am not sure which ones are recommended for pregnancy because they took me off of ilight>celexailight> when i was expecting ilight>andilight> did not replace it with a different one. Maybe the ob and your doctor prescribing the antidepressant can put their heads together and come up with a better plan for you. i was worried about what i had to take when i was pregnant but my daughter is now seven months old and healthy as can be. Good luck to you and your baby.
i am hypothyroid- used to have Graves Disease, am very sensitive to many medications( paxil=hand tremors, zoloft ilight>andilight> ilight>celexailight>= diarrhea). can't take ilight>benadrylilight>,codeine, atenalol, naldecon, prevascid)Neurosurgeon wants me to take celebrex for neck pain but i am afraid to take that. Also wants bone scan but i don't want to get dye injected at this point. Please help with advice on the depomedrol, anxiety and depression and neck pain. Also could those injections have affected me neurologically.
Plus i take ilight>celexailight> ilight>andilight> ativan for depression ilight>andilight> anxiety anyway.Ultram had another effect on me though that i really liked and that was when i was having a really bad day i could take a couple and i would feel so much better,i guess thats what got me started, 3 a day went to 4 a day....etc.i was up to 10 a day and then when i decided to try and stop, the withdrawls were unbelieveable.i was told that i would have them but i didnt think it would be that bad.
Over the past 4 months, i have tried zoloft, lexapro, ilight>celexailight>, buspar, ilight>andilight> now Zoloft again. i was given the 25mg tabs and told to take half (12.5) due to my body is apparently very sensitive to these type of meds. i was taking it at night, but i could not fall asleep. i would be dog tired, but couldnt flip the switch.
Look, everyone seems to have valid points. i shot "smack"(heroin) for 10 yrs...got tired of trying to get the money just to stay "well". Used Methadone for 4 months every other day or every two days to come off the "H" so i wouldn't get strung-out on it(the Methadone). i've always been an anxious person and prone to being on the verge of "panic attacks"...
i have had panic ilight>andilight> anxiety since i can remember. i was on ilight>celexailight> ilight>andilight> also took Attivan when needed. i have now stopped taking them since i am pregnant with my second child. With my first child i stopped taking them too and did ok while i was pregnant. Then went back on the meds. after my child was born. i have really found that going to therapy helps ALOT and also i have a book that has helped me so much named The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook by Edmund J. Bourne PH.D. This book is awesome.
i self medicated myself with alcohol every night from eighteen until now, except the past two months since i had abdominal surgery so now to sleep two hours i have to take four ilight>benadrylilight>, two vicoden, one flexorol, ilight>andilight> one medication for nausea that makes you drowsy. i cant live like this. My mind will never shut down and i feel like i am losing my mind. i am not depressed at all but terrified of death and usually i convince myself that i am dying by the end of the day.
i felt great up until 3 weeks ago ilight>andilight> wham, it just stopped working. ilight>celexailight> ilight>andilight> Lexapro have the same main compound, though Lexapro is supposed to be more concentrated and thus you need a smaller amount which the marketing stuff says results in fewer side effects. if celexa worked for you that well for 3 years, then go back on it and forget about Lexapro. i personally cannot take Lexapro any more. it actually iNCREASES my anxiety which causes more panic attacks.
i am depressed over this as well as postpartum issues ilight>andilight> have just been put on ilight>celexailight> for anxiety ilight>andilight> depression as well as Sonata for sleep by a recommended psychiatrist. The Sonata is too short-acthing though. i called the doc on call but he does not want to prescribe anything stronger until tomorrow, if adding melatonin and/or benadryl does not help. i am currently wearing a holter monitor and have also worn en event monitor recently.
Really makes me wonder! i've been taking 150 mg of effexor xr for a year ilight>andilight> half, ilight>andilight> have had some strange side effects, much like feeling manic for about 4 hours after i take it. i get the shakes, my hands tremble and i feel so hyper sometimes i cant stand it!!! and this drug is supposed to help with depression. i dont get it. Where did you read about serotonin syndrome? i am interested in reading about this.
Funny you mention the panic disorder, after my second round of anti-biotics my GP said i was stressed and anxious and put me on a anti-depressent/anxiety med and i felt great for the first week or so, then had the WORST panic attacks ever, one after another ilight>andilight> so on. (i had a reaction to the drug- i think it was ilight>celexailight>)? Then when i called my GP- ilight>andilight> said what is going on here, they sent me to a pyschologist due to my sensitivy to meds.
' Tried Abilify in conjunction with ilight>celexailight> to try ilight>andilight> curb the impulsivity but even half a tab of Abilify gives me insomnia. Anyone else have any luck with treating disinhibition and impulsivity? God bless all my fellow MSers and their own loved ones!
My problem is that i still have alot of anxiety ilight>andilight> depression. i have high ilight>andilight> lows in my moods ilight>andilight> when i have a high it is great. is this much shifting in mood and energy levels normal in the withdrawl phase or could it be something else?? i have also noticed a tingling sensation in my head and my eyes feel funny. can anyone give advice for the depression and anxiety like natural remedies such as vitamins.
i mean they aren't as severe as they were, but i have tingling, numbness throughout my body and rushes of dizziness and nausea is the worst. i been taking ilight>benadrylilight> to relieve these symtpoms ilight>andilight> it actually does help, but is it safe to take this everyday...i mean i'm not abusing it but i want to know how long these withdrawls will stop????????????????????????????????????????????? i'm going to go bananas..
Welcome to Part 6! Please make yourself at home!
Over the past 8 years i've been on several SSRis (zoloft, paxil(briefly), ilight>celexailight>, Lexapro ilight>andilight> finally Effexor for the past 3 years). Over the past two years it has become clear to me that the medication was limiting my, creativity and ability to access my higher level cognitive functions. i decided i needed to taper off the meds if i ever wanted to function at my full potential in life. The first time i tried to withdraw from Effexor was the most horrible experience of my life.
if i had head lice i would be infested with them ilight>andilight> so wouldn't my family.i have tried t-gel,head ilight>andilight> shoulders,scalpacin ilight>andilight> taking benadryl.i do have a little bit of dandruff and the tops of my ears itch.i looked at the pictures for seborrheic dermatitis and my head does not look like that i have a few scabs and the rash on my neck that just came on there this past week.i DO NOT HAVE HEAD LiCE she doesn't know what she is talking about.
Paresthesia is an unusual but possible side effect of the Serotonin Specific Reuptake inhibitors (SSRis), including Zoloft, Paxil, Prozac, ilight>celexailight>, ilight>andilight> Luvox. it is difficult to predict if the paresthesia will resolve or not. if medical or dermatological causes of the paresthesia have been excluded, your treating physician/psychiatrist may consider treating you with an anti-histaminic medication such as benadryl, or switch you to a non-SSRi antidepressant such as Wellbutrin or Remeron.
Panic Attack control - Alprazolam Clonazepam Diazepam - Most effective of the four listed Lorazepam Sleeping Pills - Lunesta - Worked well but diminished quickly Ambien - Sleep walking Trazadone - Akathisia, also affected anxiety ilight>benadrylilight> - Very effective (when i actually take them) Pain Killers (Analgesic, "self medicating") - Hydrocodone Oxycodone Anti-depressants - Lexapro - Currently taking Wellbutrin XL - Currently taking Nortriptyline celexa Prozac Paxil - Complete nightm
The meds have worked for me. i am on ilight>celexailight> ilight>andilight> klonopin....almost 5 weeks now ilight>andilight> i am finally feeling normal again.
Hemoglobin is 9.7 ilight>andilight> itching is almosy unbearable...no more restful nights even with ilight>benadrylilight>. One injection of iNF now per week, though she did suggest trying 270 mcg, but i proceeded to fall apart. So she suggested a 2 week wait at SOC and adding celexa, i think it was. Hard to comprehend when you're in meltdown mode. i will follow her advice...i think i need it. it's hard to be objective when you live on your own...no one to tell you when you might be acting a bit weird...
Then next i started burning intead of being cold i looked for holes in my body because it hurt so bad. My husband called my mom ilight>andilight> she came ilight>andilight> seen me ilight>andilight> said it was probably an allergic reaction. i was begging to go to the hospital, but instead she called the doctor at the office she worked at. He told her to give me benadryl. My husband left to go get some during that time i started shaking uncontrolable i was going from being ice cold to burning feelings going through my body like waves.
Hi, i am new to this forum, and i am having these same type of wierd sensations...it's almost hard to describe even to my neurologist unless you've had it. i have had neck and back surgery within last 8 months. Just 3 months ago, out of the blue, i started getting severe, daily, migrain etype headcaches. So bad, i went to my opthamologist, he said maybe cluster headaches etc. My neck surgeon said not related to my neck.
