I've been on allot of medications for bi-polar, including lithium (which gravely affected my stomache), but now I'm on lexapro, seroquel, and temazapan. The seroquel with the temazapan helps me to sleep well, and I don't go thru the tremendous effects of anxiety (expecially when you feel like you are losing your breath with no known reason to do so), but I have gained allot of weight, and I don't eat that much. I have read that seroquel is not all that good.
Namaste, Explanation of the issues (and sequence of events) surrounding the lawsuits that claim that the use of Seroquel, Zyprexa and Risperdal caused health problems such as pancreatitis and diabetes and stroke. Zyprexa, like Risperdal and Seroquel, has been associated with serious side effects in patients, especially those who have already been diagnosed with diabetes.
I have always taken regular release Seroquel, 450mg at bedtime for a few years now. My new psych dr wants me to try Seroquel XR - extended release. I have been having problems with my anxiety disorder - panic attacks which are new, and with my moods cycling rapidly. I am not keen on taking the Xanax for anxiety, but I do when absolutely necessary. She said that some people have reported an anti-anxiety effect that carries through into the daytime when the Seroquel XR is taken at bedtime.
Hello, I would like to know if it is safe to fly and be taking medical treatment for a year with Seroquel 300 and Fluoxetine (Prozac). I have to take a plane in a few days and let me know if it is safe to take this treatment ((people taking Seroquel and flew by plane more than 6 hours) I would also like to know the flight experiences in other patients taking Seroquel. Thanks, Anthony.
about a year and a half ago i was finally sent to a psychiatrist when 40mg of prozac wasnt doing anything much. She diagnosed me with bipolar, anxiety and OCD. She upped me to 60mg of the prozac which actually did help but also put me on seroquel xl which im now on 300mg of an miratazipine 15mg at night to help me sleep a bit better.
Hi Is it just seroquel you are taking (that doesnt sound right) or with an anti depressant. My doctor is an expert on treatment resistant depression and she prescribes a low dose anti psychotic along with an anti depressant usually a SNRI I have taken zyprexa with effexor, I came off everything eventually giving up the anti psychotic first and at another time (now my second episode) cymbalta with Seroquel, though i am weaning the Seroquel now and i am down to 12.
i have a CPAP for non-obstructive apnea and had a recent sleep study which recorded a confused panic episode with negative brain and oxygen results. The seroquel is sedating but confusing. BUT:I have had no bad effects from the wellbutrin withdrawal since ending the wellbutrin except this week--is it wellbutrin withdrawal? I have just moved and will start my new job next week. i have had several severe nocturnal episodes this week, so started taking the seroquel more regularly--~25mg/day.
im hoping the seroquel xr will help me sleep, b/c remeron no longer makes me sleepy nor helps with anxiety or appetite. My anxiety is very bad right now and I need sleep. SOOO sleep deprived. Hopefully this seroquel xr 50mg will help with insomnia, anxiety and appetite soon.
I have been taking Seroquel xr 150 mg for about a month with no problem, all of a sudden i have started getting bad muscle spasms that last hours. I can't take it any more, i just take my Prozac and that alone is not helping. Is this a common side affect? will it go away? why did it start after i had been taking the medicine for over a month with no problem?
my teeth have gotten really yellow, my gums are swollen and bleed if i touch them, and the worst part is, im still fat. but ive heard that taking 40 mg of prozac can work as an appetite supressor and is prescribed to people with bulimia. does it actually work? and if so, what are the side effects? id rather not go so some doctor and talk about my 'feelings' unless its gunna be worth my time. i find that sort of thing uncomfortable and horribly embarassing. thanks.
It helps with sleep, but make sure to allow yourself to go to bed early so you get a good nights rest and dont wake up to soon with the tired feeling of the Seroquel. Seroquel XR is what I am on, and it helps. Esp. since when I was on regular seroquel the first time, I did however get restless legs, and the first couple times got rapid heart beat. But this time nothing. My advice.. Try it if the dr. suggests it.. What else can happen? If you feel that awfull, and need a medication..
I've recently been dx with bp2 i've been put on prozac & it's been sending me really really manic, it's been quite scary! Other beepers i know that are on prozac some have found it great. No loss of libido with me.
I am one person who has had a bad experience with serouquel. At one time I was taking 300mg of Seroquel. Well when I would get up to go to the bathroom, I could hardly walk and honestly would walk into walls. Not fun. He moved me down to 200mg and well that didn't work either. As of yesterday I went on 100mg of Serouquel and 10mg of Ambien. I haven't slept that good in ages. I guess what I am trying to say is Serouguel works diffrent for each individual. I'm just on person who can't take it.
I was on birth control that didn't work due to my hypothyroidism. This is kinda my second Seroquel baby. Except with my first I was off my Seroquel during the first trimester. I have bipolar 1 with psychosis, so when I went off my medicine I went into the hospital for 6 weeks. It was an awful time being pregnant and being in the hospital for so long. I refused medication and ended up spending alot of my hospital time in the isolation room.
It sounds like a withdrawal syndrome. The best guess at this point is that you are not taking enough prozac to cover the Paxil withdrawal, and going up to 20 mg. a day, or a little more, might give you immediate relief. Talk to your doctor about this possibility. It is a good medication and when you stop it eventually, it is much easier than Paxil. The effect of Prozac as a continuation of Paxil is almost immediate..you don't have to wait for its positive effect.
I'm now on Zoloft , after trying Effexor Xl , Celexa , Lexapro , Prozac , Cymbalta, small doses of xanax and ativan , and they even tried putting me on Seroquel to help me sleep wich is an antipsychotic that had very bad side effects and that I didnt even need for the medical issues i had. I suffer from anxiety , panic attacks and depression. What dosage are you on and if you don't mind me asking what are the resaons that led you to this med?
She has prescribed me Zyprexa but I am really scared about taking it, I really don't want to gain weight - I am still trying to lose the weight I gained on Depakote. I am also worried about the risks of low blood sugar/diabetes as I already have problems with sugar loss (though I am not diabetic), also the dizziness thing - I already have bad episodes of dizziness. I did tell her all of this but she just waved her hands about and said to start me on low dose.
i dont fall asleep easily. thats when my psychiatric nurse moved me on to geodon then seroquel along with risperal. both of these i find not very tolerable at all. with seroquel i will sleep very sound though i might suffer some bad hallucinations getting there. and i will oversleep with it. with geodon i will sleep ok, get to sleep easy enough, though when i wake up i dont want to get out of bed.
Its the common ones to be looking for. And there are people with anxiety disorder who panic at the thought of taking medication entirely and are looking for things that won't happen. I do believe factual information presented in a non confrontational manner is the best way to approach that.
weight watchers,low cal,walking i hardly eat i sometimes think the weight has to do with taking effexor and lithium that seems to be a side effect. i eat heathy . its like the weight just krept up on me .we are prety sure the high b.p is genetic ,my dad mom grandparents even my younger brother this all just worries me because im only 31.
can't tell you where to start exactly. but what i am sure about is that you should consult a psychiatrist and not a GP to start with. Then if you are dx with bipolar disorder because BP II starts "always" with depression then in that situation your prozac isn't the right solution. So planning in not seeing a pdoc is not right.
To: marileewI tried verapamil, but it didn't work for a migraine preventative for me. I also tried Diltia XT.
I was taking seroquel and still am taking cymbalta but i'll slowly taper off of that. I'm so glad. This topamax is also supposed to help w/ sleep. I hope so. My first impression this morning, was lots of nasea and no desire to eat. Also overwhelming fatigue. But I moved a truckload of boxes w/ my boyfriend up 4 flights of stairs and I have Fibromyalgia so who knows what is what. I am very glad that I a will have a place where I can be w/ others that are taking the same medication I am.
I tapered off my meds each time slowly, with no side effects at all. At different times, I've been on Zoloft, Lexapro, and Prozac. Each med worked very well for me, with Zoloft being the best, then Lexapro, then Prozac. It COULD be that you're a little more sensitive to the meds than others...everyone reacts differently. It also could be partly psychological in nature.
She also claims to be suicidal and has taken overdoses alongside bottles of vodka when she has stayed with friends. The GP prescribed her prozac, giving her insomnia and kept increasing the dose up to the max. When this increased the outbursts became worse, then he prescribed her DIET PILLS believing it could be a weight issue and now I believe she may be abusing them as well.
I am completely off the Seroquel now for months, and am still taking the Flecainide? Could my tics be related to the eye/ear pain? All of these attributed to one of these meds? Or do I have Tardive Dyskinesia from the Seroquel? I am worried that this is permanent, and it really scares me. It's frustrating that the docs don't take this seriously and I feel like drugs have ruined my life.
The 4th doctor was from the neighboring city and she said that my heart and blood pressure is fine, but the symptoms sounded like panic or anxiety attacks. She prescribed me prozac, but I have always feared taking medicine, because my mother and father always gave me medicine for something. For example, I would annoyed my mother enough that she would give me tylenol, because it made me sleepy.
Hello, Thanks for your comment. I am on week 2 of taking Lamictal now and am currently taking 50 mg with the dose eventually growing to a max of 100 mg. Pretty much as soon as I got on this med, the confusion and fogginess from Fluoxotine (generic of Prozac) went away (thank God for that!). However, I still have my depressive days where I don't want to interact with anyone, no interest in anything, and don't feel like getting out of the house.
