week of pills for 3 months) but experiences almost daily cramping, hot and cold flashes, nausea. The gyne was stumped as to which BC pill would be best, as Yasmin is for the PMDD, but causes the side effects for her. Other pills have a different chemical make-up, but more estrogen can cause more mood swings. Does anyone else take Lexapro and Lamictal in addition to a BC pill to suppress periods? Thank you!
My 20 yr old daughter suffers from PMDD and Major Depression with Bipolar 2. She takes Ocella active pills continually for 6 months for menstrual suppression (to get only 2 periods per year), plus she is on Lexapro and Lamictal for her depression and bipolar. She does not have breakthru bleeding (unless she occasionally misses a pill) but gets almost daily cramping, hot & cold flashes, nausea.
I was recently on Pritiq and it caused hot flashes and sweating and it made me feel manic like I wanted to crawl out of my skin. I stopped that med 3 days ago. My Psych put me on mood stabilizer lamotrigine. My question is: Does lamotrigine cause sweating? or Am I still sweating from the Pristiq (anti-depressant)? I am newly diagnosed with BPD and I am just trying to understand it all.
It takes 4-6 weeks to feel the full benefit of any medication and Effexor is no different. There is always an adjustment period for these types of medications but it only last a week or two. I have taken Effexor with excellent results but we all react differently to these types of meds. I would give it at least two weeks unless the side effects become too much and then call your doctor.
I am suffering from peri-menopausel symptoms (hot flashes, mood swings, etc, etc). I wish to take some herbal remedies. I also realize that I must have this information before doing so. Can you recommend something that will help before I go nuts?
It started with uncontrollable crying episodes that weren't triggered by events and led to memory loss, confusion, hot/cold flashes, blue hands and feet,delayed speech and feeling unbalanced. All of these symptoms resulted in me having to be medically homebound for my senior yr. of high school. I was diagnosed with depression and comfortable with the diagnosis until now. I have tried everything to lessen the symptoms!

I've heard this is what hot flashes are like, but I'm only 20. I'm a little young to be getting hot flashes. I went back to the doctor earlier this month and he did blood tests. He never called with the results, so I'm assuming everything is okay. I go back to him June first. He kind of seems at a loss. I've lost 15 pounds in the last two months. This could be because I completely cut pop and fast food from my diet. And in those first few weeks, I wasn't eating much.

Common side effects include constipation, diarrhea, dry mouth, and nausea. In some cases, Cymbalta® causes dizziness and hot flashes. Although anticonvulsants such as gabapentin (Neurontin®) and topiramate (Topamax®) and antidepressants such as amitriptyline (Elavil®) are not approved by the FDA to treat neuropathy, they are often prescribed to treat this condition. Side effects of these drugs include drowsiness, dizziness, low blood pressure, and fatigue.
The doctor said Sleep Apnea was not significant. I wake every 1 1/2 at night w/hot flashes or to urinate. Not good for REM. I have read the body needs REM and has a way of making up for it by having several cycles in a night. Is it possible that when I sleep longer & have repeated REM cycles, I am depriving my brain of enough oxogen to cause these nocturnal events?
I went home and began having the seizures even while taking Lamictal. He sent me back for another video EEG, reversed his epilepsy diagnosis and sent me to a psychiatrist. Never got a straight answer from him on how I could have build ups and then not. For six months, I was treated by the psychiatrist with Klonoprin at first and then Pristiq for a conversion disorder, something that made absolutely no sense to me.
I feel nausea, hot flashes, sweating, dizzy and some depression (although anxiety is primary). Can anyone identify with me and explain what's going on? Am I going crazy or I need to hang on and expect the symptoms to subside? I started effexor XR about a month ago and therefore not sure if it really kicked in completely. I'm confused, PLEASE help and advise. My pdoc feels it's normal, but I don't feel normal. Thank You, C.B.

I have terrible hot flashes, difficulty concentrating because I feel so anxious. When the anxiety gets bad my left eye buldges and my voice becomes hoarse. I initially had the eye problem from the graves but it gets worse when the anxiety gets worse. I have days with terrible diarrhae and others with constipation. When I start feeling really anxious my voice sounds really hoarse. My last tsh was 3.9. The Dr tried a small increase in my synthroid which made the symptoms worse.

I have had my thyroid removed but doctor says thats not it (it was removed 16 years ago). I'm having hot flashes too. All of this weight seemed to hit my waistline. I look like I'm 6 months pregnant!!! and nothing fits or looks good. My partner told me this morning I had a beer belly (I immediately began to cry). I have been trying so hard but can't get rid of it (it just keeps coming). I guess starvation is the next step!

I have a cockapoo and he loves being walked, I realized how much I neglected him when I am on pills. Its really great to be rid of those pills.
I tried to up it to 50 for a day, but got severe anxiety, hot flashes and nausea. I called the doctors office and was advised to cut back to the 25 until I see him on Wednesday. I still feel the nervousness but it is at least tolerable. I was given xanax to take 3 times a day as needed for the nervousness. I have been generally taking it in the morning and at night.
Mild Constipation Hot Flashes (or at least that's what it feels like) More Frequent Headaches than usual, but no severe pain, just moderate throughout the day, usually worst at night and relieved after rest) Extreme fatigue by early evening, even if I haven't done much that day (deep, dark circles around eyes, feeling "cloudy") Trouble falling and staying asleep Trouble focusing with my eyes (like my eyes move for a split second while reading or watching TV) I don't know if any of t
Feeling cold one second, the next second feeling hot, like hot flashes. Slight headache. Increasing appetite. Never seem full really. Feeling exhausted just going up a few stairs. Inability to concentrate long at times. Must lay down at times. That is it for now. Its Saturday night. I am indeed afraid that this medication may of caused permanent damage to my body. I am hoping to feel better in the next couple days.

I too have been diagnosed with a small (3mm) pituitary microadenoma. My saga began about 3 years ago at age 42 when I started going through "manopause". Symptoms included hot flashes,severe anxiety attacks, sleep problems, sexual dysfunction and disabling fatigue among other symptoms. I went to a urologist who determined that I was suffering from hypogonadism of pituitary etiology. He put me on testosterone gel. This helped with some of the symptoms but my severe fatigue persisted.
