Common Questions and Answers about Zoloft and coumadin

zoloft

I have an implanted defibrillator and was also on medication (norpace, nadolol, synthroid, and zoloft). During the time that I was taking this medication I was always very tired. At my last check up my doctor told me that I had experinced 24 episodes of attrial fibrillation. My medications were changed; he eliminated norpace and added pacerone and coumadin. Since I started taking these new medications I don't experience the tiredness.
My medications were changed; he eliminated norpace and added pacerone and coumadin. Since I started taking these new medications I don't experience the tiredness. Could the coumadin, by thinning out the blood, make the blood flow faster, bringing more oxygen to the brain faster?
My ep stated that it would not interfere with all of my other med, anti arrythmic meds and coumadin hypertension meds. It surprises me that your ep is not of the same belief. Find a good gp and don't bother with the np. I really dislike my cardiologist's np and he does not understand these matters anyway. Usually the ep deals with folks like us on a daily basis and understands the worry and anxiety that goes with run away heart rhythm without any notice.
Mike RE: Anxiety and Antidepressants Have been on and off Zoloft for 5 years now. I am one of the most medication sensitive individuals one would ever like to meet. A little trick to antidepressant therapy when you're feeling the side effects starting treatment is to start very very slowly. I fired 50 Psychiatrists until I found one that understood that I knew my body better than anyone else could. She started me on 12.5 mg of Zoloft for a week straight (baby dose).
atenolol 50 mg morning 8. zoloft 25 mg morning and evening 9. temazepam prn 10.
he has been very unhappy with the results since the only thing it seems to do is lower his B P from 140/90 (he is 73, always excercised vigorously,doesn't smoke, use alcohol or caffine) and adds a few negative reactions like slow pulse (sometimes to 43 bpm and low even when excercising), exhaustion, drowsy- ness and in general less joy. coumadin for safety from possible clotting from atrial fibrillation, and ativan when he gets anxious about it all, are the only other meds.
Had quadruple by-pass end of march 2009. Reasonably quick recovery and am on full exercise program as well as walking around 3 miles per day. I take coumadin, amiodarone, aspirin, metoprolol (sp) as well as 2 other medicines. I have noted terrible mood swings and have become an easily angered person. Is it the meds?...a side effect. Also noted chronic E Dysfunction.
MY SON HAS BEEN T AKING ZOLOFT FOR YEARS, STARTING HAVING PANIC ATTACKS, SWITCHED TO CELEXA, THEN TO PROZAC AND NOW BACK ON 200 MG OF ZOLOFT, WAS DOING GREAT UNTIL THE AGGRESION STARTED TO COME OUT AMONG OTHER SIGNS SUCH AS HYPER, ARGUING WITH HIS FATHER, BUYING, OBSESSING OVER THINGS AND REALLY, REALLY MEAN AND WE REALLY GOT SCARED FOR HIM AND THE REST OF THE FAMILY. HIS DR FINALLY SAID IT WAS BP.
She is on a number of meds-zoloft, wellbutrin, coumadin, zyprexa, aricept and namenda. Could this be after affects of the stroke or is there a possiblity of a seizure disorder?
Ilsa, I copied and pasted the following from my drug reference link: Potential Drug Interactions You searched for interactions of combinations of the following drugs: Amiodarone Oral, Arimidex, Dilantin, Zoloft. (Caution: not all drug interactions are known or reported in the literature, and new drug interactions are continually being reported.

and the doctors are recommending drastic measures because she is experiencing what they call cardiac cachexia and fear other organ involvement within a year's time. She currently takes Lanoxin, Lasix, Potassium, Coreg, Aldactone, Coumadin, Zoloft and Prempro. (Mom was part of the BEST study, and received Bucindolol for several years--the medication was a lifesaver and kept her at a maintenance weight, brought up her EF and overall improved her condition substantially.
My Father was diagnosed with CHF and Atrial Fib in July 1997 he is currently taking Coumadin, Lasix, Lanoxin, Verapamil, Furosemide, Vasotec, K-dur and Zoloft.

So I stayed with amytriptylin,lorazedpam (for sleep)and VaLIUM DURING THE DAY But I started having more and more anxiety and panick attacks and shew put me on zoloft and remeron.

I started at 128 pds and i'am now 165! ]Can you let me know if there are alternatives for this drugs?
My neurologist current idea was remove me from the zoloft. I have stopped taking it for a couple of months, and the tremors are only getting worse. I can do no fine work with my hands. I spill things, and if I hold a book my thumb shakes very dramatically. Someone told me to try a drink of alcohol because it might help. I had 2 glasses of wine last night and they did not improve at all.
I DONT SIT AND EAT AND EAT IT IS WHERE I CANT GET UP AND EXERCISE AND I HAVE TRIED AND TRIED... BUT WHEN I DO .. I GO DOWN FOR DAYS AND CANT MOVE AND THE PAIN IS SO BAD I CANT HARDLY TOLERATE IT AND THATS EVEN TAKING A HIGH DOSE OF PAIN MEDICATION.......ITS AWFUL. I WISH THAT THIS NEVER HAPPENED TO ME. IVE LOST SOME FRIENDS CAUSE I DONT GO AROUND THEM ANYMORE AND I QUITE TALKING TO THEM. AND I DONT LIKE COMPANY BECAUSE I LOOK LIKE HELL ANYMORE.
When I went to see my internist I simply mentioned being a bit jumpy (not at all anxious) and he did a few reflex tests and said I was extremely hyperreflexive and he told me to see a neurologist. My cardiologist insisted as well. So the questions are. Do you think it is really necessary to be evaluated by a neurologist? Could this be nothing? Is it possible that the amiodarone is causing this reaction?
He said I would have to be on Coumadin and heart meds forever after the other two procedures, but only be on Coumadin after the pacemaker insertion. Does that sound right? I'm looking for the option that will make the AF GO AWAY, and I don't need to take meds ANY MORE. Is there such a thing?
The only medication she is still on is gabapentin (1500 mg/day, down from 2100 mg at discharge) and Zoloft for PTSD diagnosed after discharge.

Coumadin, Toprol XL, Zoloft, Aciphex, reglan, lomotil. Stool for C/S and C. deficile are negative. He has been admitted to hospital & started on TPN. His mood/ affect is good although is quite frustated with not improving. EGD just done should reddened stomach with congestion. PDR shows most of his symptoms as SE so MD placed it and plavix on hold & started Lovenox. Megace tasted toooooo awful for him to take. We are planning CT Scan of abd, hopefully tomorrow.
Antidepressant medications -- Taking ginkgo along with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRIs) antidepressants -- including fluoxetin (Prozac), sertraline (Zoloft), paroxetine (Paxil), and escitalopram (Lexapro) -- may cause serotonin syndrome. This condition is characterized by rigidity, tachycardia (fast heart rate), hyperthermia (high body temperature), restlessness, and diaphoresis (sweating).
I am very upset about this but I take other meds (coumadin and lipitor). I will check with my doc, but I've been on the other meds for 5+ years with no hair loss. Has anyone else noticed hair loss from lexapro?
http://www.talkingdoc.com/medication/paxil.htm "...Interactions [for PAXIL] with Other Medications: Do not take a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) such as phenelzine (Nardil), tranylcypromine (Parnate) or selegiline (Eldepril) concurrently or within 2 weeks of the last dose of paroxetine as this can cause severe reactions such as hallucinations, mania, fever and muscle stiffness (serotonin syndrome). A minimum of 2 weeks should elapse after taking a MAOI before starting paroxetine.
i am really not on any meds except zoloft for panic attacks i was having. i am not a big medicine person so i take as little meds as possible. but i have severe arthritis in my hip which hurts me 24/7 and i often need tylenol for the pain although the orthopedic said i should use ibuprofen to help reduce the inflamation. but because of the heart situation i am hesitant about what meds i do take and take them only when i really have to.

25 mgs and Zoloft 25 mgs for Anxiety and Panic Disorder. I have been on these meds for 1 year with good results. I have always had good lipid readings, however, since beginning these meds, it appears that my lipids have risen. My recent test are: TC-220 HDL-56 LDL(calculated)-113 TRIG-253 CHOL/HDL ratio-3.9 My questions are: (1) Am I a candidate for Statin therapy? (2) Can the LDL be accurate, being that it was calculated with a TG level of 253?
I was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy last March. There is no miracle that i can find. I believe that I contracted it through my heredity and a possible viral infection. When I was first diagnosed my family doctor was treating me for asthma. when to my surprize x-rays revealled left sided heart failure. T o make a long story short there are medicines to help your heart returned to a healthy state. some that i take are: coreg, lanoxin, accupril, coumadin, lasix, zoloft.
coreg, lanoxin, accupril, coumadin, lasix, zoloft. these medications have given me energy to be able to function a normal life. Of course, I will miss running in the Boston Marathon. If you have any questions e-mail me and maybe we could meet in a chat room. keep your head up your doing the right thing by asking questions.
