Neuro said it was acting as a toxic in my system and changed meds. I have tried ambien, lunesta and adavan all to no success. My neuro said hospital if I dont sleep soon. What do you think hospital will do?? thank you.
Well today is day six on depakote er. I am so tired of not sleeping. I wonder when I will get a good nights sleep. I think I would rather have a seizure than not sleep at all. I hate this. I am trying everything and nothing is working. Why???????
Just understand the DMDs do not treat symptoms they slow progression. I am on anti seizures for nerve pain and muscle relaxants for muscle spasms. They have to play with different drugs for symptoms. I also do self hypnosis. Distraction is important to me. Pain is worse in my down time because I am focused on it more.
Hello Dr Gould, I would appreciate you input and Klonopin and effects on depression. I have a friend who is 11 weeks post-partum and has been having increase depression and anxiety. She has been using Klonopin over the past two months and has slowly been using it more. It seems to help here get through the difficult anxiety/panic times, but the depressive symptoms seem to be getting worse. I have been doing some online searching for her.
Help! I've tried detoxing from xanex 3 times & the withdrawal is dehibilitating. here's my story: 3 times i was hospitalized in mental health/behavioral units for detox of xanax and because of no insurance was kicked out within one week. i've been on xanax for 7 years starting out with .5 mg three times a day. i built up a tolerance & abused the drug in order to get the same effect.
Now at 50 I have a set of elemnts that are working. I will now avoid Lunesta, Ambien, and all the others hypotics that make me loony and leave me so forgetful I think that I have dementia. I know it has been in part due to post surg. hormonal imbalances and taking wellbutrin as the ostensible, though not actual solution. I needed the right the right hormones adn quietude in my mind.
Have seen several people have seizures when TAKING tramadol. AND, every tramadol related seizure I saw did not seem related to how high a dose the person was taking; RATHER was in instances where someone markedly INCREASED their dose. I think the confusion is in that seizures are common when withdrawing from sedatives (alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazapines etc). Rare in opiate withdrawal.
I'm just wondering how many of us are agoraphobic and to what extent. I know that I am and fight it all the time but make sure that I do leave my home most days. I have a very dear friend who hasn't left her home in almost 7 years. She has had all kinds of therapy and has tried SSRIs and other meds but is now VERY meds phobic and even with the CBT she finally gave up and just stays home. I'm wondering if there are others on this forum who are like her or are the majority like me.
Hey yall, So I have already seen a neurologist once, this past week, and he is ordering an MRI, which I should have done this week. But just curious about the symptoms that I'm having and if anybody has experienced them. My nuero said that I could have possible dysautonomia, or some cardiac problem. Either way, here's what has happened so far. I apologize if this is long. Just wanted to try to get everything in. I am having the sensation that I'm not in reality, almost like I'm in a dream.

WHEN PREPARING TO GO TO BED, I TAKE A SLEEPING PILL-LUNESTA AND ZANAX AND A HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE PILL,BUT LAY THERE WITH MIND STILL AWAKE FOR ATLEAST 2 HOURS. I TAKE WELLBUTRIN IN THE MORNING. DOES THE STRENGTH OGF THE WELLBUTRIN HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT? 300mg?
Topamax is used to treat migraines and seizures. Allegra is for seasonal allergies. The vitamins are good for her and the dosage is correct. The puzzler here is the Costocongitis which is inflammation of the cartilage in the chest wall. She is already on the Toprol for angina, which makes me wonder if she needs both meds, and why. You can always talk to your local pharmacist, take a list of her medications and ask if there are any interactions, he is your best resource for this.
Is there a medication that detox places use to wean/taper people off Ambien successfully? Or do you just slowly wean/taper yourself off and when the seizures and anxiety and panic attacks hit ride them out?

I have been taking tegretol for seizures and bi-polar disorder for 10 yrs. now. Yesterday, 2-13-10 I fainted in the back yard and was discovered by a faimly member and was taken to the hospitol by ambulance. When i came to (at home) I had absolutely no recollection of fainting or falling. The Doctor at the hospitol was very concerned about my sleeping disorder and recommended that I see a sleep order specialist. I've taken ambien, 10 mg.
I take effexor xr 150 mg daily, lunesta at night to sleep, and ativan .5 mg prn, which I amazingly don't abuse. Its just the percs that I can't get away from. I like the energy I get, and the way I can just deal with life. I'm wondering if I permanently screwed up my brain years ago from the opiates and now I just have some sort of an endorphin deficit that percocet is filling. Anybody have an comforting words, identify?
Tonight and last night it was xanax and I still can't sleep yet. The night before last it was ambien and before that it was lunesta. it seems like every four five days I start clenching my teeth and grinding my jaw really hard it hurts that I have to go back to the xanax. This is horrible and I am goiing to run out of ambien soon only ahev a few lunesta left, then only xanax about 90 .50 mg. How do i stop this?????
It is not known to be physically addictive tho Large doses of tramadol or benzos can cause seizures if stopped abruptly and best to do under a drs care. Ambien and lunesta are not known to have a seizure risk if stopped...but if ur dose was huge, the possibilty would be there as with many drugs the brain becomes accustomed to. We are all different tho and some are more prone to seizures than others/but not common with cessation of ambien. You state you took 1-2, sometimes 3....
She has now, at age 21 yrs complex partial seizures and when she is in them she asks the questions over and over again within seconds, "What time is is? What day is it? Do I have anything to do today? What am I doing tomorrow?" This goes on for 2 mins and last night it was about 12 minutes...the longest ever. She has had one EEG and CT scan.
Effexor, Cymbalta, Prozac, Lexapro) While these antidepressant drugs are occasionally used in pets, overdoses can lead to serious neurological problems such as sedation, incoordination, tremors and seizures. Some antidepressants also have a stimulant effect leading to a dangerously elevated heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature. Pets, especially cats, seem to enjoy the taste of Effexor and often eat the entire pill. Unfortunately, just one pill can cause serious poisoning.
And when it's bad, like another poster said, you can have seizures. Get on a taper with your docs and friend/family help. Let's us know how your doing, good luck.
I have taken paxil, zoloft, welbutrin, lunesta, ambien, ambien cr, topamax, klonipin, xanax, depakote, geodon and some others. I've felt the worst while on the medication. Now since I am finally over the ordeal and been off the ambien for 3 weeks, off the geodon for 2 weeks and off the depakote for 1 week, I feel fine and able to sleep at night. I do have a history of depression from childhood but that was it...just depression. I no longer have racing thoughts ...
In fact, I'm so desperate in the middle of the night, that I've nearly OD'd myself w/o knowing it- because I'm not lucid enough to recall what I've taken that night- and will add a Xanax to my Lunesta in the middle of the night, and then a Unisom or two and hour later, then maybe some more Lunesta- that was a bad day. My doctor said to drop my Xanax to half a pill (which would be .50 mg) for 3 nights (and take 1 mg Lunesta) then move to a .

It can also be caused by temporal lobe seizures, sinusitis, brain tumors, migraine, Parkinson's disease and stroke. You may need proper evaluation by your GP, please consult him for a neurological assessment. He may then refer you to a neurologist if needed. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
I had my own private blood tests done at week and 4 and 8 and they do not agree with the study tests. Mine suggest no detection theirs do suggest detection at week 4 and 8. 14. When I was first having my blood work done at the screening they had to call me back 3 times because they kept using the wrong needle and my blood kept hemolysing. 15. I was told by study nurse in an email that my 12 week PCR had to be undetected in order to continue. So that meant that I was undetected. Am I?
Depakote is really too strong for me if I don't have seizures and have only sleep apnea twitching, hypnic jerks, PLMD?

Benzo's like Klonopin have to be tapered very slowly. Its better to wait and be safe than sorry.. seizures and the other awful withdrawals symptoms are very scary so take care of yourself..
In rare cases, high levels of serotonin in the brain may cause severe complications like seizures, stroke, and even death. If sertraline and trazodone are used together, it may be best to start with very low doses of each drug under the careful supervision of your doctor. Ask your healthcare provider about these drugs and this potential interaction as soon as possible. This interaction is poorly documented and is considered major in severity.
