Anti depression medication quit smoking

Common Questions and Answers about Anti depression medication quit smoking


Avatar n tn It works for some people, and clinical trials have shown it can be as effective as anti-depressants. Anti-depressants also work for some people; but if you want "natural" try that first. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon... <a href="
Avatar f tn I have been reading through the forum and have been noticing alot of people suggest getting AD when on treatment, I have been on welbutrin since March to quit smoking which I have. My question is I will start treatment in July is welbutrin ok to take with the treatments? Or do I need a new AD? I dont think I want to try treatment without one, I mean most times I am ok in mood I do have the depressed days too though, and I have read that Treatment can cause depression.
428506 tn?1296560999 I personally just stopped taking anti-depressants which I was taking for post-partum depression. Most of my symptoms didn't start until the med was out of my system, but I need to know what is going on with my body so I will not start taking them just to "mask the symptoms". Don't know if I was any help, sorry.
458072 tn?1291418786 I think the pituatary picks up on the med and - release thyroid hormone and that is how the TSH becomes messed up. That is why any estrogen - Chantix ( quit smoking aid) and birth control will mess up your TSH.
Avatar m tn I already take Wellbutrin because a) it has helped me quit smoking cigarettes, and b) helps control my appetite, and c) there aren't sexual side-effects.
Avatar m tn Depression and manic depression is often related with creativity. The list of known people with depression or manic depression is long, some of the bests are on that list. Tho you can try another kind of antidepressant which will work differently than inhibiting the reuptake of serotonin and go for an antagonist or go back to a depressive state with creative juice. Everyone can react differently to drugs tho.
1565702 tn?1295296430 Dont wait until the choice to quit becomes to either quit smoking or to quit breathing. Or both. It is very very hard to get the mindset, but it is all about the mindset that will get you thru, not alternative therepies or tapering or anything else. Just lay em down and keep going and dont look back.
Avatar f tn Just wish it would help me quit smoking, lol. On tx, I find it a bit obvious during the other 10% of the time I don't take it. It often helps with a womens libido, I hear. Vertigo--are you drinking enough water? Any sinus congestion? I also get some vertigo right out of the blue, kind of scary. Sometimes water is the culprit. Other times it just comes and goes, more so on tx. Good luck. I always say we must know ourselves better than our doctors and you sound like you do.
Avatar f tn Can someone please give me some advice on how to quit smoking crack. I have a 10 year ols son and I tried going to detox but he is so attached to me he could not stop crying and didnt sleep for 48 hours. This alone should be enough to make me quit and I want to so bad but just cant do it. Im all alone with this one. I have no one to talk to about this problem and just need to hear how other people did it. Im not looking to be cut down because of my problem so please only encouraging meassages.
311051 tn?1193419806 i have stopped smoking for nearly 2mths and i feel really dizzy and my pulse is racing can anyone tell me why
Avatar n tn By the way, he has been on ADD medication in the past, and anti-anxiety, anti-depressants, you name it, and nothing has worked. I am an advocate of the legalization of medical marijuana, but I doubt he could get it prescribed just for the above reasons. He is aware of my feelings about illegal drug use, but how do I look him in the eye and say I don't believe it actually helps him in more ways than not?
Avatar f tn it isn't as harmful as people seem to think. I know women who simply can't .. or well, don't, quit smoking cigarettes throughout their pregnancies and go on to have normal healthy babies, birth-weight and all. Althought I don't agree with it, it happens, QUITE often. And much more often back many, many years ago, before they had discovered that the effects of cigarettes were even harmful to the body.
Avatar m tn I have major depression and was on anti-/deps when I started using loritabs and vicoden. has anyone else used pain pills while on anti/deps? something made my meds stop working and my depression got worse. I don't feel like I am living and am miserable at all times. I quit taking the pain pills 4 days ago today. but kept smoking weed. I don't have physical withdraw,as I was taking rather small dose. I changed from loritabs to tramodal about 6 mo ago. any advice ?
Avatar m tn Eventually you will quit when you've had enough. I tried to quit for 15 years. I kept going in and out of aa for 15 years. I got in a relationship with a very abusave woman. When I called the police she told them I beat and raped her. I was arrested and charged I won my case, she admitted she didn't want to go to jail so she made it up. This experience was the straw that broke the camels back. I haven't drank got high or even slept late since or cuss.
Avatar m tn The way you described your current symptoms is exacty how I felt before I started taking AD medication. My Depression made me feel exausted, forgetful, Anxious, and dark all the time. I also had tried 3 months on Cymbalta and it did little for me too. What other meds besides Welbutrin, Lexapro and Cymbalta have you tried?
Avatar n tn I quit taking all my anti consultants, Not recommended without recommendation from a Neurologist. and did not have any seizures what so ever.
Avatar m tn I thought I would never quit smoking. I also quit smoking cigs which is partly why I have headaches, I hope. I have had headaches for almost a full month now, and do not know why. I hope and pray there is nothing wrong with me because it would ruin me, I just hope I can bounce back somehow. You are not alone man....
Avatar n tn After 6 months and discussing these symptoms with the gynecologist, he agreed that Sarafem was not the solution and I discontinued use and was told to go to another Dr., because, unless I quit smoking, the liability of giving me birth control pills was too great because of increased risk of stroke. I stopped seeing the gyno. I returned to give this information to my primary care Dr., in tears.
Avatar n tn Don't have health insurance now but had some Wellbutrin left over. I thought, I am depressed, plus I wanted to quit smoking. So, started taking Wellbutrin on my own about two weeks ago. Began with 100mg. and increased it to 150 for a few days, right now I'm on 250 mg. for past two days. But, depression is much, much, much worse than it has ever been before. At first I also felt anxious and nervous for no reason in first few days of taking Wellbutrin but had no trouble sleeping.
Avatar f tn Thanks for asking Bill, my treatment was a success!!! I wasn't placed on any anti-depressants during treatment, but later started taking zyban & then chantix which are both anti-depressants to help me quit smoking, they made it worse, so of course I quit them and that's been months ago. I sure miss this forum everyone on here is always so helpful & supportive. I think I need to continue to visit this sight often, it always helps to know I'm not alone. Thanks everyone!!!

145315 tn?1192241113 I smoked during my Kent State U. era in the 60's, along with the college professors, then stopped for many years. I started up again two years ago because of my persistent Insomnia. I have a Medical Marijuana Card and have literally two hits before going to sleep. It helps. Now... just a few days ago, the Hepatologist said three tests have shown marijuana to accelerate Hepatitis C.
Avatar f tn Anger is depression. Its one of the #1 symptoms of depression. I commend you for trying this on your own. It takes guts and will power. Its a mental game too and you have to fight hard to win. Dont get discouraged. In time all this will pass and be outta your system. Hang in there~Bkitty You can do this!!
Avatar n tn alcohol is central nervous system depressant so it does cause MORE depression when consumed in large amounts.there are anti-depressants and anti-anxiety agents that work well....u cannot mix alcohol with them.there are some that don't work well with alcoholics.its a try and see thing.In the USA here is a good pill called Campral,it cuts the craving for alcohol.Stopping smoking and drinking at the same time is too much,the alcohol should go first then the cigarettes when ur mentally ready.
154927 tn?1205246451 I think I might be a little more sensative since I quit smoking too. I've been off the patch for 3 days after doing the 14 day plan. A little edgey, ya know? LOL I always thought I could get thru this tx without AD's, but will have to see what the doc says, I guess. Thanks for your opinions. I'm having computer trouble too..spilled water on my mouse..I think it has drowned!
Avatar n tn It gave me confidence,my social anxiety was gone and I mean gone,no more depression,I quit smoking and I rarely drink anymore at all. The only way I could get it at the time was through friends and people I worked with after that. I was able to start living again,was able to enjoy things like hobbies again. I didnt need it everyday either. I took no more then 1 to 2 pills in a day on the bad days when depression was bad. That was my limit.
Avatar m tn Long term opioid therapy is no different from having to take blood pressure medications for the rest of your life to control hypertension or insulin for diabetes or anti-depressants for depression. The issue with opioid medications over the long term is that they come with a stigma attached as it is a medication that some like to abuse. If you don't have addiction history in your family, rest assured that the risk of you becoming addicted is very low (<1%), especially.
304970 tn?1331429594 The placenta previa diagnosis, trying desperately to quit smoking (impossible when you are constantly stressed btw), small town B S, financial concerns, health insurance issues, hating my doctor, and there is more but I will stop there.. I just have moe on my plate than I can handle and I am soo stressed and depressed, I will get advice on meds, but I wanted to try the therapy route first and see if maybe just having a non biased party listen and validate me will help..
Avatar m tn So I guess I don't really know what I'm asking. In what ways is Tramadol like an anti-depressant? Which anti-depressants behave in a similar way? I would love it if I could just live my life without taking any pills, but nothing has ever worked for me. I'm really scared.
