Paxil and melatonin

Common Questions and Answers about Paxil and melatonin

paxil

i usually watch a little tv, read a book, then get sleepy, ilight>andilight> fall asleep. it really helped me, ilight>andilight> i take it every now ilight>andilight> then. it is natural ilight>andilight> not habit forming, which i really like.
i use melatonin with Celexa and have used it with ilight>Paxililight> ilight>andilight> Lexapro, ilight>andilight> haven't had a problem, nor have i heard of any problems with ilight>melatoninilight>. it's one of the safest pharmaceutical products ever tested, but again, one should always be on the lookout for strange reactions to whatever you take, be it food, medication, or natural remedies.
i read up about both but am wondering if weight gain is a problem with zoloft. As for ilight>paxililight> i gained over 25 pounds ilight>andilight> now im trying to lose it ilight>andilight> it sure isnt easy. i found out you don't take zoloft at night but paxil you do. i have got to lose this weight.
To anyone who has not started taking ilight>Paxililight> i would tell you not to ilight>andilight> to try a seratonin ilight>andilight> ilight>melatoninilight> natural alternative. ilight>andilight> to anyone who is about to stop taking paxil i will say good luck and to try your best to stay off it forever. The supplements i mentioned above in small doses will help with any emotional problems that you are having i can almost promise.
try out ilight>Paxililight> for yourself for a year or 2 ilight>andilight> then stop taking it. My husband was on ilight>Paxililight> in the army ilight>andilight> stopped taking it and got what they call the "Paxil Flu". This is a dangerous drug that has many side effects and many MANY more withdrawal symptoms. You might as well be on heroin and try to get off. if i could go back, i would have never gotten on Paxil. it helped with panic attacks but gave me about 30 other problems. So to sum up....
Since both paxil and prozac are SSRis, you are probably okay taking both. Make sure you do a web search for prozac ilight>andilight> ilight>paxililight> ilight>andilight> look at drug interaction precautions. Maybe search "paxil prozac interaction" instead.
For me, it helps me fall asleep after ilight>Paxililight> withdrawal ruined my life, ilight>andilight> nothing else has been able to do that, but staying asleep is difficult because my schedule is very off -- it works better if you're on a schedule that is natural to you, because melatonin sets your body clock and it's hard to do that if you're off whatever body clock is natural to you (not everyone is suited to getting up early and going to bed early -- people differ).
Nickles66 - i had to stop the Melatonin experiment after about a week as my depression got worse, i had to taper off from Seroxat (Paxil) in order to take the Melatonin but my anger/frustration/anxiety etc came back with a vengence and so i was reluctant to take both Paxil an SSRi and Melatonin, it may just be okay but don't want to risk it.
i was on ilight>Paxililight> 5 years ago for divorce anxiety ilight>andilight> tapered off slowly ilight>andilight> it was fine. i just started it again because of general anxiety issues. i have just taken it 5 mg for 5 days then 10 mg for two days then, 5 mg for 1 day, 2.5 mg for 1 day then quit. i am having the worst anxiety. My counselor tells me that this was such a small dose for such a small time i should not be having any reactions, but i cannot pull out of the anxiety. i tried .50 mg melatonin last night, and am worse.
But i have still been taking ilight>melatoninilight> ilight>andilight> benidryl ilight>andilight> sometimes a couple tylonal. i also take a claritin every morning. Wondering now if the two benidryl at night have side effects long term??? anyone know if taking them religiously ever night to help knock you out is a problem? i still wake up early morning hours.
At that point, he instructed me to keep the liquid ilight>Paxililight> in the refrigerater to prevent the medication from clumping up ilight>andilight> possibly destroying the concentration. Keeping the liquid Paxil in the refrigerator worked. Now, after increasing the dose to 5mg, i fell asleep almost immediately, slept ten hours to about 10:45am, but then, however, an hour later, i felt incredibly tired, and i literally had to fight myself to stay awake the rest of the day. Therefore, i reduced the dosage to 4.
i 've been taking 10 mg ilight>paxililight> ilight>andilight> 0.25 xanax, everyday for two years in the morning at 1040 ilight>andilight> 540 then ilight>paxililight> 10 mg at night. if i stop taking the xanax i feel wierd. i read the withdrawl am so scared. i rather take paxil than xanax. i want to at least get off xanax but don't want withdrawls. what should i do? i think am addicted to them.
For the muscle twitches look into magnesium malate or citrate it has to be the acidic form and for the insomnia check out tunguska mist PM spray it worked wonders when i didn't want to take the trazadone or anything else. it has a bunch of different adaptogens ilight>andilight> some ilight>melatoninilight> ilight>andilight> works quickly. Ativan is a nasty little drug also the rebound sucked. Check out a website called curezone and got to the truth in medicine forum the forum moderator is super knowledgeable and can help you tons...
i have been having health problems ilight>andilight> just alot going on. i do notice the diffrence now. Feeling better not 100% but nothing to complane about. i have sleeping problems with the health problems and the anxiety doesn't help. The doctor prescribed amitriptyline at bed to help sleep. i read that there is a chance of seritonin? syndrom for this. She only prescirbed 10 mg. How much of a chance is there? i asked while in the office and she said it was safe to take with all my medicines.
i'm so afraid to take the celexa because of the side effects. i too ilight>paxililight> a few years ago ilight>andilight> go horrible side effects. The worse was the lack of sleep. i have problems with that now as it is and take benadryl evey night to try and help. When i do have to take the xanax i sleep well for about 6 hours till it goes out of my system. Anyone out there take an everyday anxiety medicine along with an occational xanax.
Obsesive thoughts being the most stressful over the years. i am currently on ilight>Paxililight> (2wks) ilight>andilight> Luvox (1 wk). Since last October when i found out i was going to get divorced and have to leave my kids and home i have had all kinds of problems emotionally and mentally. My symptoms include crying all the time, obsessive thoughts of suicide (although i really don't want to do it), feelings of watching myself or being with myself (quite often) and not being able to sleep at all.
i was wondering if it was safe to take ilight>melatoninilight> if you are taking Buspirone 10 mg ilight>andilight> Paxil 20 mg?
i also have panic attack ilight>andilight> anxiety from occasional insomnia. i was on ilight>Paxililight> ilight>andilight> Klonopin. Recently i want off Paxil but stay on Klonopin (as needed basis). then i had insomnia and my panic attack came back i went back on Paxil after 4 mos. . However after two weeks of taking Paxil i strated getting severe insomnia for the last three days. Do you or anyone has experienced this situation before?
i am on ilight>paxililight> for that but i still need help sleeping i get anxiety when i think of nighttime and sleep. Hence im taking the tylenol pm. its working so im not complaining.
We did an EEG, it came back abnormal, did an MRi ilight>andilight> BAM, there it was. We just did a follow up MRi a few weeks ago ilight>andilight> it is still there ilight>andilight> hasn't changed. not bigger, not smaller, just there and no one can tell me anything about it.
i am currently seeing an acupuncturist and she gave me some natural pellets for stress reduction, so i take that an hour before bedtime and about 15 minutes before i take this chamomile/ilight>melatoninilight> spray i bought at the health food store ilight>andilight> spray the suggested amount at that time. i even have a CD for sleep that i listen to which seemed to help a week ago, but is not helping now. i don’t know what else to do. i was so desperate last night that i caved and got up and took another ¼ of a 0.
Do you live in a state with medical marijuana? i live in CA, and have a prescription for cannabis. it helps with sleep, and relieves pain. it is obtained in a dispensary. if you have attachment to the cannabis "high", i might consider other options. The truth is most pharmaceuticals are liver toxic, or in the case with the benzo's, very addictive.
i have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees ilight>andilight> hips. it does not usually hurt but my muscles ilight>andilight> joints hurt ilight>andilight> seem to be tense, weak ilight>andilight> stiff. can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and i just want to feel normal and like my old self again.
its me again id also like to say i was on ilight>paxililight> ilight>andilight> went off it ilight>andilight> had trouble like zaps and trouble concentrating and dizziness really bad although i didnt have thoughts of suicide going off the drug however i did overdose on tylonal while taking the drug and also have a friend who overdosed on paxil i dont know if its from the drug or just our disorders but in my opinion paxil has brought some trouble but everyones different w/b pls thanx bye
i'm just wondering how many of us are agoraphobic ilight>andilight> to what extent. i know that i am ilight>andilight> 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.
thanks everybody. 9 days clean.
Like i said, i am a lightweight ilight>andilight> i am allergic to coedine ilight>andilight> morpheine. Quite simply, they both cause me to stop breathing ilight>andilight> i've had two surgeries that i've had to recouperate with only Motrin for pain. But that is ok - i like breathing better ! LOL ! So anyone - any herbal anti-anxiety vitamins that can be recommended ? i've done well with Melatonin for insomnia so i'll use that after stopping the xanex. i've never heard of Vistaril - any side effects ? Thank you so much again !
i know my husband was depressed by the fatigue, inability to work ilight>andilight> just plain sick of being sick. Zoloft ilight>andilight> ilight>Paxililight> are a couple of the meds i've seen people here taking. For joint pain he should be able to take ibuprophen which is what i've seen recommended by doctors on several HCV related websites.
As soon as i get into a place i get so dizzy ilight>andilight> my vision is all messed up. i get so hot ilight>andilight> sweaty ilight>andilight> my heart races. i want my life back. i still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. i feel like i have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. i started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
