Avatar n tn Just throwing this out there, not trying to stir up anything if someone takes an anti psychotic for anxiety. If you do and it works.... great.

I have seen some psychiatrists who freak out on the idea of daily benzo use, and suggest a small dose of an anti-psychotic instead.

The proposed mechanism is NSAID-induced inhibition of renal prostaglandin synthesis, which results in unopposed pressor activity producing hypertension.

Avatar m tn no your wrong if you think barbiturates are hard to detox. you just have to transfer to a non narcotic anti seizure medication like neurontin. actually i found otc supplement like a combo of valerian root, passiflora, melatonin worked better and longeer than neurontin. but thats just me. well wish me luck and luck to all of you.
Avatar n tn The SSRI-AntiDepressant induced increased serotonin would cause a downregulation of the neurotransmitter dopamine and therefore cause the same damage at dopaminergic neurons as observed with neuroleptic (anti-psychotic) treatment. However, in 4 PubMed articles (1; 2; 3; 4), Tardive Dyskinesia and Parkinsonism are associated with disturbances of serotonin and melatonin secretion and a malfunctioning Pineal Gland.

Avatar m tn It was originally developed as an anti-convulsant/seisure medication that has now been applied to pain relief. People need to carefully research safe doses and possible side effects..the amounts a doctor is willing to prescribe usually far excedes safe amounts. I'm glad it helped you. Everyone wanting to use this drug must be cautious. It can actually cause people to go 'off the deep end' almost into psychosis. IF it works for you great.
