I spoke to my dr. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> she slowly switched me over to Zoloft.

Just wanted to see what ya'll had to say first.

Ive been on Aderal, Strattera, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> curently for the past 2 years or so ive been taking Vyvanse: 50mg in the morning and 20 after lunch.

Cut to the chase I would like to try adding another mood stabilizer in place of the two antidepressants Strattera <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Wellbutrin. I have a problem with weight gain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> for that reason I had to drop Depakote years ago. I also had been on LIthium with Lamictal but after seven months I experienced extreme muscle weakness in my legs and arms where I couldn't keep my balance and my legs shook uncontrollably when climbing or descending stairs and getting off the bus.

The suicidal thoughts drastically increased, he started rapidly dropping weight, he was exhausted and nauseous all the time, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he started having muscle spasms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> tics, as well as bouts of intense anxiety <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> aggression. He also had periods of social phobia, where he was afraid to be around me or his parents or any other people, and was incapable of making eye contact. So his psych switched him to celexa then Lexapro.
Many don't like it but I do. No anxiety from Serequel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> focus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> staying on task with the Adderall <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Strattera.

My question is are these meds o.k. to be taken together. I have asked his Dr. and she says yes, then others have told me that he is taking too much. I know you don't know his history, but could this medication be affecting he behavior? I would love any suggestions. As he is getting older, his temper is getting worse.
celexa 80mg, Wellbutrin 300mg, Strattera 80mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the Daytrana Patch 20mg. I have never taken benzos <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> NOT been on Wellbutrin and celexa, but my question is: What's going on!? Am I immuned to benzos for some genetic reason? Does the Wellbutrin block the benzos from working? What's your take on this? Also, have you heard of this before? I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>celexa</span>, Prozac, Abilify, Risperdal, Strattera, Vyvanse, Methylin and Adderall. Any thoughts on what direction we should be going with him? We feel like we are running out of options.
Dexedrine: 20mg tid; Geodon: 80mg bid; BuSpar: 20mg tid; <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>celexa</span>: 40mg qd. I have been on: Ativan,celexa,Clonopin,Depakote,Effexor,Geodon,Lithium,Paxil, Prozac,Ritalin,Zoloft,Zyprexa,Xanax, maybe more. I want to reduce the amount and types of meds I am on. Currently, the adhd is doing alright c the Dexedrine, and my mood is stable c the Geodon (and less wt. gain than c the Zyprexa- which is a MAJOR CONCERN- as I am already overweight), but the OCD, and GAD seem to be outta control.
Social skills group (taught by social worker, weekly meetings with 6 similar children to talk about and act out proper behavior) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>celexa</span> medicine Discussing all activities with him first <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> if he is still upset about them we skip them. Agreement by school staff to preview work, supply in-class full time aide. My wife and I have read books by Tony Atwood and gone to see him talk.
Well, unfortunately I thought I was okay to be off medication <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> weaned off of Prozac. It was not because the medication was no longer working, I just weaned myself off of it. I have pure "O" and my obessessive thinking is out of control. Well with my recent episode I was prescribed Lexapro and it is only helping a little bit. I started out with 10 mg for about four weeks then went up to 20 mg for about four weeks and am now on 30 mg for about a week.
dunno the difference between prozac <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>celexa</span> - or paxil... but out of the three <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>celexa</span> was the only one I tolerated without having a constant --- annoying need to yawn... We're talking one every minute 24/7. I think that I am pro tx --- but with your current problems hmmmm - I would be wary --- and I'd be looking at documenting everything - and staying on top of any sides. I don't know what genotype you are - or how long your treatment would be for SOC...
I tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>celexa</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Klonopin once...bleech! Another psych dr was trying to put me on risperdol, I am glad I refused now that I know it is for Schizophrenia and Bi-po. My anxiety is getting on control but not as much as I want. I wonder if Xanax is a good choice since it's at the top of the charts. When I was hospitalized, everybody and they mama was on that Seroquel. It was like the whole floor was on it (weird).
if you look these drugs up you will see that people have had sudden death <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> some have had heart problems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> strokes ,<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Seizures. My son started having Seizures after being on ADDERALL witch did nothing for him and was then put on CONERTA , these drugs changed him . Now he has Seizures every day and more than one kind of Seizure even thou he is on Medicines and had Surgery last June and had what they call the VNS put in.
I was wondering where the best place for me would be to find a complete list of medicines I should stay away from with Long QT syndrome. I have a list but it is over 5 years old, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am in need of a new one! Thank You!
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> anxiety <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> take 20mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>celexa</span> 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?
well, i was taking strattera (25mg) for 3 years, it's for adhd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> i was taking seroquel in the evenings to help me sleep. i had been on these meds for 3 years then after tx, for some reason, my chemicals were altered and these meds were not working for me anymore. i had wanted to get off seroquel anyways because it is not safe for the liver. well as of 4 days ago, my doc put me on elavil.
What do I do? I just lost my medical insurance <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they put me on Buspar <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>celexa</span> just last week. I just want to be free of this time in my life and I wish I had never started taking it, but I did not know what I was getting into back then. I was just trying to function from the anxiety and panic that was in my life at the time. I don't respond well to medicines that don't calm my brain down. I went cold turkey and came off of Strattera a year ago, but had only been on that for 3 yrs.
But I also take 60 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>celexa</span>, 18 mg Strattera <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 200 mg Provigil as needed as well as Naproxin as needed.
