Sertraline overdose effects

Common Questions and Answers about Sertraline overdose effects

zoloft

A couple of days later I started to experience vivid hallucinations and was quite worried. It's been a few weeks now since the overdose and the hallucinations have got a lot better, but I still have a problem where sometimes my eye where if I look at something for too long it merges all together and sometimes my eyes just form random images or patterns - especially in the dark. I see a psychiatrist for depression but I am worried that I have done something to my brain and need some advice.
CNS effects: May impair the ability to engage in potentially hazardous activities. Disease-related concerns: Cardiovascular disease: Use is not recommended in patients with a history of angina, cardiac ischemia, recent history of myocardial infarction, left ventricular hypertrophy, or patients with mitral valve prolapse who have developed mitral valve prolapse syndrome with previous CNS stimulant use. Hepatic impairment: Use with caution in patients with hepatic impairment.
ONE important thing to remember that I learned, and have never forgotten is that these two effects CANNOT exist without anxiety.....but that anxiety can exist without these sensations. Derealization is basically a change, an alteration in the PERCEPTION or experience of the external world....in other words...everything LOOKS very strange, very "unreal" (movie like, in my experiences). Depersonalization is a subjective experience of unreality of one's self. So the difference is...
I experienced suicidal and homicidal ideations after taking an overdose on Serax. I was also taking Zoloft at the time (did not overdose on the Zoloft). I was extremely upset over something that happened at work and was trying to calm myself down by taking the Serax. One capsule didn't work, so I took another. By the time someone finally thought of taking the bottle of pills away from me I had ingested approximately 15 capsules of 15mg each.
Alcohol will increase the likelyhood of you experiencing the side effects of your sertraline and put you at a higher risk of overdose. I imagine the dose you take makes a difference (i.e. the higher the dose the higher the risk, just as the more alcohol you take the higher the risk). Is the standard dose 50mg in the US? I imagine it's the short term side effects you should be more worried about than the long term. Are there any long term side effects listed on the PIL?

But I had side effects with Effexor, nightmares always experiencing my mother's death, screaming in my sleep unconsolably, & 90% lack of sexual feelings, high B.P. After about 5 mos. I was in such a high with Effexor with excessive energy & my therapist together with the psychiatrist began me on Seroxat instead, as I established a rather self destructive attitude.
Seroquel absolutely can cause drowsiness, it's one of the most common side effects. How long have you been on it? A lot of times, those side effects will start to dissipate after a week or two of taking a medication. It sounds like you've been on it a while? Also, it could be very likely that your dosage is just a tad too high. I would recommend talking to your doctor and seeing about maybe making some adjustments and then reassessing the Seroquel after a few weeks.

As SSRI's are bad for many bipolars and as I tried to suicide when last on Prozac which sent me into psychotic mania Im looking for the thoughts of the community on Non SSRI AD drugs they have used and their side effects that people have experienced - I really do not know where to start with these drugs as I had such a bad experience last time and its been so long - I want to have some info before I see my doctor and she grabs the script pad. What has worked for other people?
I'm currently taking cardizem 120MG once a day and atenolol 25MG also once a day, is there any impact or somehow an overdose that you can consider if taking this both medication ? Since started taking this both medication (last week until now) I feel fine but what if the palpitation came back anytime now is it okay to pop in another 25MG of atenolol? I know i should ask my cardiologist but right now he's out of town I don't have anybody to get an advice.
True you should consult a doctor for he is the only judge. Yet my hunch from your words you said he has been on sertraline (zoloft) for years and still depressed. Usually if he is bipolar or at least cyclothemic then he should have developed mania under the AD, especially that you don't seem to be giving him an antipsychotic. If you read the pamphlet of any AD it says not to be given to BP pts except with an MS. So it seems zoloft is not hurting him but neither helping him much.

I had burning in my occipital lobe, right side of face, right shoulder, upper back, and burning down my right arm. I called my old primary and they told me to wait off the side effects of the imitrex instead of going to the ER. My head continued to burn for two months when another doctor finally pulled me off of the pristiq. The burning is gone for the most part but I am left with what they are now calling generalized dystonia.

Bailey, PhD, reported his surprising finding that taking certain medications, including commonly prescribed blood pressure medications, with grapefruit juice increases the body’s absorbency rate of these particular drugs, causing the drugs to be absorbed in such quantities that the therapeutic effect can be heightened to the point of threatened overdose.
so we were at a loss to say what she took..and she has been dwelling on suicide as of late......they think it was an SSRI overdose as she had zoloft...but there were still some left..she is a nurse and often ssris will not kill u only make u a vegetable..ans since they do not make u high i just dont see her taking a whole bunch/ of those/plus if suicide was the point..

Some doctors will start a patient on a low dose of an anti depressant or an anti anxiety before starting treatment for this reason, to help with the negative psychological side effects. Really, it will take a good hepatologist to guide the process of which health issues to address first. Keep us posted.
I definitely believe it can be from anxiety. This past summer, my right arm always felt extremely heavy. It seemed even hard to lift! It was anxiety related. Our bodies can do so much to us! Aside from a pinched nerve or syatica (spelling?) and your heart is fine (thank goodness!) that is what it is! Notice how it goes away when you are exercising...you are releasing anxiety and stress when you do that and it isn't building up inside.
There is something else I feel I should say Two weeks ago we buried a friend of mine she was 30 and she died from and overdose of oxycotin and xanax. This has also made me want to quit all the more.
My husband thinks I should go to the doctor this week, but I will be printing out some info from this website... Have any of you experienced side effects from the prescriptions? I have no history of cervical spine injuries, but did have 3 epidurals. I believe that without a doubt it gets worse with sun exposure. I am an RN and determined to seek out answers to this weird thing!
Thanks, crazywillie. I appreciate it. Well... c'est la vie, eh? I did what I did, it had its pros & its cons. Que sera sera, as the wise ones will say. I do exaggerate the long-term effects: usually I'm fine, and I was doing really well, I just experience occasional downs & nostalgic feelings which make me bitter, such as the ones I described above. When I'm good, I'm great, and when I'm down, it stinks, but I shouldn't complain.
