Paxil and valium together

Common Questions and Answers about Paxil and valium together


Hopefully I'll be ok mixing the 3 Valium, suboxone, and Paxil? I only plan to take the Valium for a week maybe 2 weeks, until I feel the Paxil starting to work.
i am currently taking paxil 10mg 1po qd and want to know if its safe to take this with adderrall and or valium for my anxiery..
The hell I'm going through now is very upsetting, I know I didnt take any Valium, just my Remeron and Klonopin and all of a sudden I'm guilty before proven innocent. As a teenager and young adult I did drugs socialy, but I grew out of that and have only taken meds that were prescribed. I do have a high tolerence to drugs, I woke-up under general anethesia when I had my c-section 21yrs. ago. I got off the methodone after one month because I was afraid of addiction. How ironic!
org/wiki/SSRI#Contraindications_and_drug_interaction It says that benzodiazepines like alprazolam (Xanax) or diazepam (Valium) (klonopin is also a benzo) along with SSRIs (paxil/prozac) may increase blood levels and risk of toxicities. IF this is true 4) Why am I prescribed Klonopin with the Prozac (and previously the Paxil?) I have had no problems with mixing the two together but I'm curious as to why it would say that in wikipedia. Thanks!
I take Norco for pain and he says the DEA won't allow hydro and valium together. Sounds like a lie to me. I have terminal pulmonary fibrosis and the valium does suppress breathing. Without night o2 my oxygen blood sat gets into the 70s at night, Im pretty sure thats why he wants me off them. He wanted me to get off them in a 2 week taper, thats BS. Lucky for me I had the 80 valium in the hole and I got the 30, 5s from another Doctor. I did tell her everything so I'm not scamming anybody.
and my head feels like it weighs a ton. As of now i have not found out how paxil and prozac can react together, but i definately think i should have cut down on the paxil and not just stopped. I wish you all luck in your endevors with these meds. My doctor has been out of town for the past four days and is about to open up, you better believe i will be calling.
Have been on Ativan for 5 weeks,starting at 4 mg a day for 3 weeks,now down to 2,but I`m kinda shakey, and display minor withdrwal symptoms.Changing over to Valium today,10mg a day,and starting Zoloft,25mg. Question....once the Zoloft kicks in,I believe as early as a week or so,will it help ease the Ativan,Valuim withdrwal. Also,I don`t reallly have much in the way of info as to managing these drugs.Should I stay at 10mg Valuim for a few days,then try to continue tapering down....
I've heard that ativan is actually the worst for you from several doctors but was only trying to get users experience. With xanax I can still function great at work and I've heard valium and ativans just knock you out and tranquilize you to the state of uselessness.
Hi there, after i started a subutex taper and started showing signs of withdrawals and extreme anxiety, i was also prescribed Valium, 10mgs 4 times a day, also to stop rls and to get some sleep. But Valium is only prescribed if on a taper and ready to jump soon and showing signs if withdrawals. This happens to all Methadone and Sub patients in my part of the world. I dont live in America : ) Anyway, i filled my script and didnt bother taking any, i realised i'd have to withdrawal that too.
How hard has it been for you to wean yourself from Paxil? It's as agonizing as coming off of heroin..and shares most of the same symptoms and long term effects! While researching an answer to all of the awful symptoms I experienced during my Paxil withdrawal, I was unable to find any medical resources listing Paxil as a source of these particular symptoms we all experience. Guess where I kept finding my search results directing me to? Heroin withdrawal.
For the last month I have been taking Paxil CR. I decided I wanted to stop and contacted my doctor and she said to start taking it every other day for one week and every 2 days for the second week and so on till I am down to 1 pill then stop. I got through the first wek great. Actually I have never felt better! The first part of the second week went well but about 1/2 way through I started getting slight light headedness. I usually get it on the second day of not taking it.
I am on Paxil and Zyprexa for OCD, Panic Disorder, and Bipolar Disorder. I also have body image issues and the Paxail and Zyprexa sure doesn't help (although it helps with my other symptoms) Without meds, I am unable to function. However, I too am experiencing weight gain which is causing a lot of panic issues. I eat right, exercise all the time, and I cannot lose weight, only gain. I'm scared. Is this weight gain going to continue? What other medications can I try?
You are in this together. She is your medical ally, and the only one who can deal with your fear in a rational way. Take care.
I like you suffered from only a few anxiety attacks, and my doctor wanted me to be on Paxil. I took it on a Tuesday morning, and felt like i was high for 2 days straight, which made me go to the emergency room because it wsa making me go crazy. i only took a 10mg, tablet. Not to mention, that it was affecting my entire day because i felt so messed up. I will tell you that i honestly can't stand the feeling of being high or (not in control).
It is a benzodiazepam and definately can create physical and psychological addiction. The Paxil and Busbar are well know meds that treat both anxiety and depression, and tend to stabilize people, not make them worse, but..everyone's system is different. Your husband should not be drinking on these meds. Alcohol will pretty much stop the Paxil from working, and can be very dangerous in combination with the lorazepam.
I'm being tapered off paxil right now. And thought I would look up if their were symptoms from going off it. And now I can say now I'm afraid to be tapered off it now after being on it for 3 years. Any advice?
that is definitely odd, and something that warrants a call to your doc to discuss both the symptoms, and the Paxil. Certainly sounds as though you don't tolerate the Paxil very well at all. Now, to label it an actual "allergy" is a little more complicated. Either way, the verbiage isn't as important as staying away from the medication.
I'm dizzy and sleepy in the daytime, but I take other things like Vicodin 750, Klonopin, Flexeril and Ambien, and Paxil. I gained weight with the Diabetes, so I can't tell. But I loved carbs before all of this.
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?
c pills can help the w/d's? I am also on Paxil, and I take ativan, only if i really need it and suboxone if I'm having bad cravings. I asked my dr but because the suboxone's aren't perscribed to me, he wont say what to do. Also, he kind of rolled his eyes at me when I mentioned using vitamins and herb to help my symptom's......
also i am taking b-complex injections and the diet pill adipex for energy all this working very good my withdrawal are minor the only thing bothers me at night my elbows start to hurt and twitch is there anything i can take for that .i have the valium and the xanax too to get knocked out and i am ready to go to sleep .thomas what do i do for my elbows i feel pretty good with this plan that i am following knowing i have been abusing the hydro for years 18 tablets a day...
chef, it wont be long now and the good days will come closer and closer together. but i have to agree with confused you really need to get the thomas recipe ingredients. it makes a ton of difference in your recovery. and so much better than taking the xannex. i did take the xannex the first few days, but only for sleep. and remember what others have said because it is VERY addicting. hang in there hun, you are just about to reach the light at the end of this tunnel.
I have tried many different types of meds mostly SSRI's (paxil, lexapro,prozac, made matters much worse) SNRI's (Effexor, Cymbalta, (didn't take it long enough) the price was too high) sleep meds I have tried; rozarem, vistaril, ambien, trazadone, and valium. Currently taking restoril prn. The meds I haven't tried are the ones that cause EPS and tardive dyskinesia. I work in the psychiatric field in a somewhat rural area. The communities around here are close knit.
However, it also suggests that paxil and prozac does the same but there is not as much literature on it and I do not recall feeling so bad when I took the valium and the paxil together. My dilemna is that I want to give the Zoloft some time to work since it's one I have never fully given time to work but I don't want to keep dosing the 2 if they are causing adverse reactions or side effects that I can avoid if I switch one of them.
I then went back and had them treat me for my anxiety and panic. They were kind enought to give me Valium. This was very helpful and allowed me to start researching the road to my own cure. Here is what I recommend: 1. Get tests done to make sure there are no physical problems with your heart. (EKG, Echo, Holter or Event monitor, etc.) 2. Get a second opinion just to make sure. 3. Run, don't walk, to your nearest book store and buy one of these books...
Patients expect a drug when they are sick which is why we have become resistant to so many anti biotics and why drugs such as Ritalin and AD drugs are problems now not to mention pain killers. Valium and the benzo drugs got their bad name because they were universally abused and over prescribed by doctors for any reason possible - mothers little helpers in effect and what we got was rampant abuse. These days the medical systems will tell you that this does not happen.
I was pissed, but it helped with my anger. How long have you and your boyfriend or fiance been together. I am sooo lucky to have my husband as understanding as he is. He grew up with a bipolar father who beat him and mistreated him. So when I get mad over something stupid or worry he understands. His attitude towards my bipolar has probably played a HUGE role in our relationship going as great as it does. Maybe you could benefit if you tried to get your b/f to understand more or something....
