lexapro

Avatar n tn I take Lexapro for anxiety and was wondering if I can take phentermine with it?
Avatar n tn i also suggest a woman doctor rather than a man- for some reason men just think women make **** up and women doctors can sympathise with the fact that although you need the medication, you can't deal with ANY weight issues... anyway- take care!

Avatar n tn Just pick something you think you might like and try it. Schedule a time you can do it that works with your day, either something you can do with the kids or do it while they are asleep or someone else can watch them. If you plan to do it the same time each day it might help. Well sorry so long but I hope I said something that might help! Several of us on here check in with each other every few days and it helps to know we have that support from others who are going through the same thing.
Avatar n tn Ive found some that didnt warn me about taking SSRI's with phentermine. My pharmacist noticed when prescribed lexapro that i shouldnt take it while on the diet pills. Ive had a weight gain of 15-20 lbs in the past few months appears to be mostly water. Its all in my midsection (like I have a flotation device around my waist) and in my upper arms.
568877 tn?1216825648 For about a month now I have been having Anxiety attacks and Depression really bad. I fought out I shouldn't take Phentermine if I have Anxiety or Depression. So I was going to get back on my meds. that I used to take which was Welbrutain XL and Xanxa . So the question is>> Could I continue with the Phentermine while taking Welbrutain XL and Xanxa? If anyone knows please let me know. The Xanxa was a low milligram .5 and the Welbrutain XL was 150 milligrams.
401095 tn?1351395370 see it could be anything with some drug addicts.. I'm very sorry you are experiencing this as it is very sad when someone you are vested in continues the destruction.. I have had to end a very long relationship with a girlfriend of 30 years for these reasons about 14 years ago I was going down with her. ended up I went down on my own.. I'm so glad you are clean and I hope this strengthens your determination to protect it..
Avatar n tn Ive found some that didnt warn me about taking SSRI's with phentermine. My pharmacist noticed when prescribed lexapro that i shouldnt take it while on the diet pills. Im a 27 yr old single mom of a very active 5 & 7 yr old. Im a social worker but doing marketing for hospice and sales is very stressful. Not to mention Im very ocd, very analytical by nature.... So my problem is I have had a recent weight gain of about 15-20 lbs in the past few months which appears to be mostly water.

Avatar n tn Gosh, I hope I can do it. I go to Hickory, NC to Dr.Clinton Guarino. I take Veriuni Advanced Antioxidant with red wine extract. I'm on 10mg of Lexapro at night and of course Ortho Novum 7/7/7 before bed. I started doing Yoga this morning for beginners 35 minutes. I didn't realize stretching could be so tough!!! I guess my nickname sums it up Babygotback and let me tell you it's a whole lot of back!!
Avatar n tn I can empathize with you. I was on predisone for years, along with Remicade infusions, methotrexate, and pain pills for RA (Rhuematoid Arthritis). Prednisone does pack on the pounds! 3 years ago I gave all those drugs up after they damaged my Liver (either the methotrexate or Remicade was the culprit). I researched alternative natural sources at that point to recover and find relief outside of being drugged constantly.
Avatar n tn This will help some with detoxing your system a little quicker. Take GARLIC Caps - will also help with detox. If you have Phentermine (most likely you do not), take 5mg if you absolutely need a huge boost. It is for battling weight loss and just happen to get my hands on some. Do NOT take much as you do not need to substitute one drug for another. THE MOST IMPORTANT TO ME - Take VIVARIN or NO DOZ.
Avatar f tn i wouldnt say its easy to manage weight on these meds, but with the right diet and dedication, you can accomplish anything no matter what you take. if you need the depakote, take the depakote. but if not, id rely on somthing else. i try to stay away from weight gainers, but lithium just works too well for me to deny it. first priority is your brian, second is your body. you can always alter you body throuh hard work, remember that.
1700643 tn?1464850282 I don't know if you have taken a phentermine yet but they give you energy and take away your appetite. I have taken them and I felt a little jittery at times. I don't think they will kill you. do you have blood pressure issues?
Avatar n tn Hi, below is what I wrote Paxiled, I assume that person works with you? Anyhow, I don't think you got the idea, your post sounded almost scolding. I just wanted an informed answer, I have been on anti depressants for a long time and am extremely careful about what goes into my body. Thanks, Dana Hi there, yes, I do know all about what you are saying.
Avatar n tn Withdrawls are something that you are going to learn about in a short while if you continue with Xanax, any other Benzodiazepene, or Opiate. That's one of the reasons we are all here. It's because we want to get off of these things. We have experienced withdrawls i.e.... Violent diarreah, sweats, chills, insomnia, achey feeling, depressed, anxious, and the list goes on. It's no fun. There is nothing worse than withdrawing from an opiate or Benzo....
214544 tn?1201150990 Please I do hope you will take this as a helpful suggestion - to help you minimise the pain you feel from all this horrendous experience - Have you considered going to a stress management/pain management program like the one at the Mind-Body Medical Institute at Mass General Hosp in Boston, or the on Jon Kabat-Zinn runs at UMass Medical Center, or like the one Jonathan Smith runs at Roosevelt in Ohio?
Avatar n tn my doctor has started me on topamax for seizure disorder and he said it may help with wt loss. I am 5 ft 3 in tall so you can imagine how fat i look. but good luck to you with topamax. let me know how you are doing.
Avatar n tn It's not important how long it takes to taper from dose to dose, it matters that you take your time! ALWAYS take Effexor with food in your stomach and drink plenty of water. Do NOT eat or drink anything containing GRAPFRUIT, it can create a serious toxic reaction. NEVER, EVER take St. John's Wort or 5-HTP--they have a serotonin in them.
Avatar n tn I know how scary it is to change meds. Do you have any vacation time or something that you can take so you can really focus on getting your meds right and not have to worry about having to show up for work and having something strange happen. I know how risky changing meds can be. I am super sensitive to meds. The last major depressive episode I had came on a very short time after trying to adjust meds. I think part of the problem is that I tried to cut down on one too fast.
Avatar n tn I Would tell you though that even durring the bad times with topomax it is better than with out.I can only tell you from my experience that my reason for the med was for headaches but has helped ultimately with my temper....,weight and other things.I do have side effects.but heck to me they arnt worse then head aches.hope i helped a little ..
Avatar n tn What did it do to you, suppress your apetite or just made you lose weight? Please respond back if you can answer any of these questions, im in desperate need of some answers and hope ! ! Thank you.
Avatar n tn You can find oversight within your own mind on what your brain is struggling with, you can separate reality from thought and you can make it through. Give your brain a chance to rebalance itself and you can do it.
Avatar n tn don't know if your doctor discussed this with you or not, but have you seen the numbers of what this drug can do for birth defects? The goverment is researching it now. Alot of people have issues with this drug. Just keep talking aout it with your doctor I am sure he/she is fully aware of how crappy this med can be, even for anxiety..and they say xanax is bad. I have always said, all these types of meds have bad withdrawls and side-effects...
Avatar n tn I really do belive that it's a lifestyle change. For those of you who are struggling with depression, don't give up. While it can be frustrating and discouraging, it is possible to lose weight. Weight absolutely affects self esteem but don't put pressure on yourself.....You'll get there! Best wishes and good luck!
Avatar f tn how long have you been on topomax it takes several months for it to get into your system...and you have to take as you doc. prescribes... I've lost over 30 pounds slowly with prob. three to four months but know its been nearly 8 months and it's stayed off, i do eat healthy but love to you eat mexican food out once a week!!! Anyways if it works with you medical issues i would try to stay with this, it's good!!!!! Amanda God Bless.
Avatar n tn Like Nicole said will the long term effects on our bodies be worth all of this... When I can just take imitrex when I get a migraine to get rid of it. By the way, those of you interested in the weight loss that is not my intended use, but I have lost at least 10lbs. and forget to eat all the time... Hey there is the memory loss as well... Ha Ha!
Avatar n tn It may surprise you to find out that thyroid also is caused by a hormone imbalance in your body. There are a couple of things you can take that will get rid of all your symptoms. One is a product you can buy at your local Natural grocer, it is called Estrotone. It's a natural hormone balancer for women. It is hormone free and side effect free and will make you feel better every day. The tiredness will be gone, the dizziness....etc.
Avatar f tn I need to know how to get rid of this weight I was 105 punds size 3 and now wearing size 9 and 11 and its been about 4 months and I am miserable.

Anyone have a ideas or experience to get this off still gained some weitght after not taking another shot its been 4 months since I was supposed to get it again.

Avatar n tn I take it along with Wellbutrin. I just wanted to tell you my experience with this drug.I have struggled with my weight all of my life . I am now 35, 3 children and when i was diagnosed manic-depressive i was on prozac, wellbutrin and taking hi levels of prescription weight loss pills. I was losing my mind but i wasn't losing any weight! When my Psychatrist decided to try me on Topamax it was because of my anieity over my weight gain with the standard mood stabilizers.
