Lexapro withdrawal joint pain

Common Questions and Answers about Lexapro withdrawal joint pain


I did find joint pain listed among the symptoms experienced with Lexapro withdrawal. Please tell me you tapered off this drug and did not quit cold turkey. These drugs should be slowly removed. I was on a similar med and I went even slower than the doc advised in getting off of it and had no side effects, but maybe I was really lucky. I dropped the dosage each month until I was on the lowest amount then started spacing out the days between the lowest dosage until I just quit it.
a friend tried it (for other reasons) and asked if it worked for depression. the dr. said yes...along with joint pain, headaches, fatigue, insomnia, asthma, weight loss and smoking cessation. i figure what the heck. right now am still on 200 mg hs and the occasional seroquel. have appt. with psych. in 2 weeks.
vitamin therapy. I would also like to mention that symptoms like digestive problems, joint pain, headaches etc. can be side affects from medications but they may also be symptoms of not enough medication or even the depression itself. I'm currently not taking anything except L-Tryptophan (an amino acid) which is a precursor to seretonin.
Serious withdrawal symptoms including joint and muscle pain, stomch issues, fatigue, depression and a strange hollowness in my nerves ensued. I didn't feel I could just stop functioning for a week or two or whatever it would take, so I used some hydrocodone that I had to help me get my tramadol use down to 100mg per day over the course of a week. I would just take the hydro when I started feeling really bad in the afternoon to get me through the rest of the day.

could I die from withdrawal? I guess I need to know if I can do this on my own. I am ready to stop. That I am sure of. I am just scared of the W/D symptoms. I have a wife (and 2 small kids)but I do not want her to know what has happened. I guess it boils down to one question: Should I see my doctor or can I get through this on my own? I just want to do what is best for my health. I am sorry for taking up your time but if you have any advice I would love to hear it. God Bless all of you!
Who would guess that taking only 10mg paxil could cause such disruption in one's life when trying to discontinue taking it. I am trying to wean off and started a week ago going every other day, then every third day etc. The dizziness headaches flu like symptons etc have been awful. Is there any help out there to deal with this? I have been taking paxil for seven years and gained 40 lbs.
As time went on I started to gain weight, my appetite was incredible and all I wanted to do was eat. I had horrendous joint pain, I could not even bend over to get my shoes on, my husband had to do it for me. This started to get to me and I knew I had to get off it. The first time my psychiatrist reduced it, I was fine at first but in the end had to go back to my regular dose.
I have been having severe flu-like symptoms, lost of coughing, joint pain (so bad in my toes, I can hardly walk), and pains in the rib cage. 'Not sure if this is withdrawl or not. Can anyone advise? I also just feel like I'm falling apart. I told a friend today, that if I don't get better soon, I was just going to throw in the towel. Oh, well. I'll just keep plugging along. Perhaps some of you can give me some additional insite. Thanks, and best of luck to all of you.
Some good news - I've been off Lexapro for 5-6 weeks and the miserable withdrawal symptoms are all gone except for some vertigo issues for which my doctor put me on Claritan-D. For about 10 days I thought I was going crazy and had enormous sympathy for people battling mental disorders such as bi-polarism. By the end of two weeks, things were much better. I was very nervous about the depression/anxiety coming back and they have, but in a manageable way.
Why did it take two days after stopping the pills for the withdrawal (if that's what this is) to get so bad? I googled withdrawal symptoms and was linked to a site for suboxone (sp??). Has anyone tried that? Does it work? Is it worth it? I have not told my medical doctor about this b/c I don't want it in my medical records. I don't want my employer to find out. I don't want my family to find out. I just want to deal with this and get it over with.
I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect. Light headedness, the runs, blood pressure going up, and general fatigue. Lots of fatigue. And some irritability. I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?

Hello Everyone! Well done! Well Played! Welcome to a New Thread!
I have not found a med that works good for me yet but my brother has taken hydromorphone a couple times and said that it's the first time he's been relatively pain free in many years and that he felt no side effects from it. He has joint pain and moderate-severe burning in his hands and feet. He takes percocet and neurontin daily but was given this in the ER when he was in such severe pain he couldn't stand it anymore.
Having no side affects now and several people have commented 'if you are in chronic pain the medication goes to the pain and not to form an addiction' this doesn't sound possible to me...appreciate your opinion on this.
I have been having symptoms of dizziness, head pain, shakiness and a spaced out kind of foggy feeling like i am watching my life from the outside - all day every day. There are some times for a couple of hours during the day that the symptoms may lift and give me a few moments to live- but not much. I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of.
5 years and after taking it for a few months, I started having widespread joint pain. The joint pain has gotten worse and is becoming debilitating. Cymbalta has a side affect of joint pain in the literature but the joint pain seems to be permanent! I have not taken Cymbalta in a couple years but the joint pain has remained. I have had blood tests and my doctor says the tests show it is not arthritis.
I managed my dry lips with Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream (better than Vaseline) and treated my fragilised skin with La Roche-Posay products. I had some muscle and joint pain whilst on the higher dose and took pain killers for this. Side effects are generally dose-related and they were a little more noticable with the higher dose. I was also more prone to sunburn so had to use a higher SPF.
I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
Once you get thrush symptoms like your tongue usually its already in your tummy. getting too much of this through your system can cause so many problems. Joint pain, headaches, tiredness etc. Google it!
I wrote in a post a while back that I have this theory--I believe that some people are genetically predisposed to addiction and that these people will NEVER be able to take pain medication responsibly, learn to drink normally or be able to taper off meds for withdrawal. It is genetic and when they start consuming any kind of "feel good" drugs (or other ones), the compulsion sets in and they just go off on a bender.
muscle tension/pain**, joint pain*, tinnitus*, headaches*, shaking/tremors*, blurred vision* (and other complications related to the eyes), itchy skin* (including sensations of insects crawling on skin), gastrointestinal discomfort*, electric shock sensations*, paresthesia* (numbness and pins and needles, especially in extremities), fatigue*, weakness in the extremities (particularly the legs)*, feelings of inner vibrations* (especially in the torso), sweating, fluctuations in body temperature,
I stick with it because I remember how the T-train caused INCREASED pain all over my body, in places I never imagined I could have pain. I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing.
If I run out I go through withdrawals which for me include very low energy, muscle and joint pain, restless legs, anxiety, irritability, nausea, hot flushes. It's not fun.
SNRI and after 2 days of taking it my body was crippled with joint pain, weakness and a rash... so stopped. Now the effects are wearing off all my anxiety and panic is coming back and worse..... Paxil DID help me while i was on it but i am regretting the day i ever took it.... if i'd known the torture i would experience now i think i would have spared myself the 12 years of normality.....
I take Lexapro with it too just one a day but I wonder if the doctors know of a reaction to Tramadol like mine or is it possibly a combo of tramadol and Lexapro. My mom tried tramadol and it does nothing for her pain or for energy. But for me I am just a lightning bug all day and come bed time I am totally relaxed and comfy and fall right to sleep.
