Avatar f tn A few months before I tried Celexa and Zoloft, which made me sick. I was then put on Lexapro for about 5 months before my GM started. I also wonder if there is a correlation. I used to work out and was taking casein (protein powder) and wonder if this or the deodorants I used could have started this. hmm.
Avatar f tn I quit breastfeeding over 6 moths ago and my periods returned, albeit very irregularly. I saw my gynecologist today and she mentioned something called galactorrhea? I am still secreting milk, and I have been having very bad headaches. I have used the ovulation sticks for the past 2 cycles and tested for 2 straight weeks each cycle without any positives for ovulation. As it stands now, my period was due 02/16 and is still m.i.a.

1452839 tn?1286055419 She is the one that had me do the blood work and told me I did not have galactorrhea. As for my mammo and ultra sound well I agree with you. When I went in to have the mammo I could see the masses and she sent me in for a ultra sound right away, the ultra sound teck conformed the masses but told me she could not tell me any more. they two days later I got a letter in the mail that said everything was normal. which was also conformed by the OBGYN and no I was not given a biopsy.
Avatar f tn Hello, The cause of irregular periods could be due to hormonal imbalance, stress, chronic illness, polycystic ovarian disease, thyroid gland disorders or diseases, pituitary gland tumors or cyst, galactorrhea, prolactinomas etc. You should consult a gynecologist and get examined and investigated if the irregularity in periods persists. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

Avatar f tn If there is any redness then you may apply topical antibiotics like Neosporin. Also consult your gynecologist to rule out galactorrhea and wear cotton undergarments.

1452839 tn?1286055419 I feel tired, my head hurts, my vision is getting bad kinda like tunnel vision and getting worse, and my balance is very bad. I went to a doctor who stated I had galactorrhea. He sent me to another doctor who had me do some labs for FSH 4.7, LH 14.2, PROLACTIN 9.0, T4 6.2, AND TSH 0.85. As well as a mammogram and ultra sound which came back normal with masses. So my doctor now states that galactorrhea is not the problem and I need to see a Neurologist and a possible MRI.
Avatar n tn If you are saying that you have breast milk, and have not had sex, you might go to the doctor's and get your prolactin levels checked to see if they are out of whack. If you are saying you want to produce breast milk, see your doctor, but I don't think there is any way to make that happen without having a baby.
Avatar n tn I have my tubes tied I have been having nausea and vomiting and my boobs started lactating but I just started my period why would I get pregnancy symptoms if im not prego is it normal to lactate before your period my youngest child is ten
Avatar m tn I saw an Endocrinologist due to recent find of a cyst on my pituitary gland as well a higher prolactin level on a previous blood test. At the appointment his diagnosis was Hyperprolactinemia, Galactorrhea, and Pituitary Cyst (typed this off after visit summary). I received my results, and everything was within the standard ranges except Anti Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody which was <900 with standard being <9.0.
Avatar m tn CeleXa inhibits reuptake allowing more seratonin to be left in the synaptic gap causing the threshold for the nerves firing to be techniquelly less because less has to be delivered for the spark to occur since more is already there and available. I have smoked M. for 2 years and recently started CeleXa. The only thing ive noticed thus far is that I am less affected by the M. now that I am on CeleXa.
Avatar n tn If this is new, and you are actually producing milk (galactorhea) and not just squeezing out a drop or two, you need to see your doctor. You could have some hormone problem, or worse, there are tumors that can cause galactorrhea.
5140021 tn?1364185966 I read a paper that Celexa helps vertigo. anyone experience this? I may have to get back on Celexa and not for Panic or Anxiety but for the vertigo that started 3 days ago.
Avatar n tn I notice this very rarely, but it has happened more than once and I just noticed it now. Sometimes it's in both, sometimes just one nipple. I'm not pregnant nor have I ever been, so I don't think it could be dried up milk. I never have any other symptoms except this white stuff. It comes right off and it's not hard but it's also not a liquid. I found a forum where some people said it was oil secreted by your nipples? Someone else said dead skin.

1302779 tn?1287405029 hello all i have been on 40mg celexa and .05 klonopin for a few months now. I feel that the ssri doesnt relly touch the anxiety ,and without the klonopin i would still be anxious! Does anyone get anxiety relief from there ssri alone? i know many people take 2 or more meds and I just wanted to know if im on the right track. any input would be great!
Avatar f tn I am convinced that my Celexa is a major culprit in my weight gain. Before Celexa, I was on Zoloft, and the first week on Zoloft I lost weight, but then stabilized and slowly began to gain weight. the weight gain was not a big amount but it did happen. Then a few yrs later, I began having problems on Zoloft so my Doc switched me to Celexa, and "whamo!", BIG WEIGHT GAIN! It was amazing! On top of the weight gain, Celexa has made me lethargic and very tired.
Avatar m tn At first, Celexa made me sleepy and relaxed. Believe me, this was a Good Thing! At last, I could sleep well! I cannot say that the drug itself decreased my PVCs--however, it DID decrease my awareness of them. Since their frequency was related to my anxiety and awareness of them (because of the effects of adrenaline), as I became less and less conscious of these sensations, the frequency of PVCs decreased dramatically. Trust your doctor and give this a try.
1166402 tn?1303847056 I just started 20 mg of generic Celexa (3 days ago) and the doc also gave me Ambien and Klonopin (take .25mg) to relieve the anxiety until the Celexa kicks in. I wake up shaky/hot and kind of panicky. Which drug is this from drugs, or is it still the anxiety. I know this takes time, but I don't want to mess with any drugs that might be making the symptoms worse (i.e Klonopin or Ambien). I also don't want to become dependent on the Klonopin and ambien either.
Avatar f tn Hello, If you are having milky discharge; it can be due to galactorrhea. Galactorrhea occurs because your body is making too much prolactin. It can occur in a hormonal imbalance, such as pregnancy, from taking birth control pills, hypothyroidism, chronic breast stimulation, such as from frequent breast self-exams or sexual activity and rarely in hypothalamic disorders. You should get your serum HCG levels checked from a gynecologist.
Avatar n tn Galactorrhea). Tumors of the pituitary gland or brain, encephalitis (a brain infection), and head injuries can also cause a nipple discharge. Taking certain drugs, such as antidepressants and certain antihypertensives, can cause a nipple discharge. Taking oral contraceptives may cause a watery discharge.

Avatar f tn I started 5 mg Celexa 5 days ago and the doctor gave me .5 mg Ativan for just in case. My question is how long until the Celexa starts working? If I use the Ativan too often will it effect how the Celexa works? How hard are these to come off of?
