Celexa and sun exposure

Common Questions and Answers about Celexa and sun exposure


Avatar f tn light exposure slows down melatonin production, fighting sleepiness and depression. The light reaches the brain through the retina of the eye, as nerve impulses, to alter hormone levels, which in turn reset your body clock and boost your immune system. Some doctors and health farms offer luminotherapy as a treatment, but there are also special lamps on the market for home use. And did you know sun a the best source of vitamin D?
503727 tn?1210442710 she gave me xanax and celexa. so im so excited to hear that you take that and it works because alot of people havent really heard of it. i take .25mg xanax once a day which doesnt do anything and i have been staring at my celexa pills debating to take them for the past three weeks (dont ask me why, just scared to start them i guess) but now since i hear some positive feedback on it i will start it tonight.
Avatar n tn Funny you mention the panic disorder, after my second round of anti-biotics my GP said I was stressed and anxious and put me on a anti-depressent/anxiety med and I felt great for the first week or so, then had the WORST panic attacks ever, one after another and so on. (I had a reaction to the drug- I think it was celexa)? Then when I called my GP- and said what is going on here, they sent me to a pyschologist due to my sensitivy to meds.
2079692 tn?1332062663 The OCD Workbook has a whole section on ERP. Basically the book is broken down in to a couple of parts. Part I is title "Learning about OCD". Part II is the "Self-Directed Program", Part 3 is "Using the Self-Directed Program for Specific Forms of OCD, and Part 4 is "Co-occuring Disorders, Family Issues, and Finding Help." There is alot about Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) There are worksheets, etc. Why don't you ask your therapist about it?
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn I went to a psychologist and was prescribed Celexa and Zanax. The Dr. told me that it is common to experience real like symptoms during a panic attack, but they should diminish over a short period (10 min). I quickly realized that I was not going to rely on drugs to fix this problem and weened my way off of the drugs after only 3 weeks. I battled with my panic attacks for over 6 months, until I could control them and was prepared for them when they hit me full force.
Avatar f tn Attacks could last minutes or hours and any combination of symptoms would happen. And in between attacks, my heart would regularly do many strange things - tachy, brady, irregular rhythm, extremely forceful beats, 'flip-flopping' feelings, etc. I also sometimes experienced a sensation of the heart stopping and restarting - immediately after the restart I would feel a MASSIVE, uncomfortable surge of adrenaline and the heart would beat very fast for a little while.
Avatar n tn the first night was great, went out to see all my friends, popped in for a bit to all the local hangouts and had a riot and was all sun kissed and glowy....BUT the next day and day after i started to turn into a somewhat bizarre looking creature, and couldn't even allow sun through the window to touch me, as i would blister up....so instead of a month holiday i had to finally give in and fly home after a few weeks..it wasn't worth staying in an watching bad latin tv soaps!!!! haha....so....
697574 tn?1273959347 You can also try different natural solution like supplementing with Omega-3 fish oil, vitamin B complex and vitamin D if you lack sun exposure, they all contribute to mental and physical well being. You can also try St John's Wort who is a natural remedy for depression and see if it works with you. Something as easy as doing regular physical exercise can help too for various reasons and more obviously because of your hormones. You have different options before trying the meds.
1637811 tn?1300373976 It was uncomfortable and hard to moisturize, but that was about the worst of it in my case. Oh, and the sun brought out red spots on my skin, it felt like I would burn very easily, so I really limited sun exposure, wearing long sleeves, etc. You asked, "would the tx itself be harmful to my body?" Have you read the information about the drugs you would be taking? There are so many possible effects to these tx drugs, and each of us just has to make our best decision.
Avatar f tn Stress, lack of sleep, too much physical activity and sun exposure are common ones. Even watching a scary/suspenseful movie will now bother me. And I avoid arguments wherever possible as they just zap me of energy. Do ensure you eat a healthy diet. Lower your sugar and caffiene and high fat foods. Increase Omega 3's, fish, vegetables, fruits. Get some mild exercise each day (walking, swimming, biking). I find treating my pain with heat really helps. Are you on plaquenil?

Avatar n tn The right eye gives a sense of concentration after doing it for a few minutes, and the left eye gets rid of the vertigo/light-headed and nervous effects after a few minutes of exposure. After doing this I feel calm for about 5 minutes and have to do it again. At 22 the delirium would occur about 2 times a week, where I was almost in a kind of vegetative state constantly staring at bright lights and just barely getting by. Most days I would just try to sleep in.
429155 tn?1205676864 45 Have been for a drive, watched sun go down over an old aifield, clouds and sun were great, me or the remains of the drug???? I seem to be more lucid at the moment, I am looking forward to going to bed, dare I try without the sleepers, I will keep you posted. Sunday 01:00 Took 2 sleepiing pills, the crazy arms/legs have returned tonight, nowhere near as severe, ( had two pints, that maybe ?? ). Sunday 09:00 woke up feeling low, let's hope it passes.
Avatar f tn My shrink tried me on low doses of four (or maybe it was five) different drugs called SSRIs before we found the right ones, which for me were Celexa and then later Zoloft. Changed my life, they did!
Avatar f tn I have had multiple bouts of angioedema following any inflammatory response including sun exposure, latex exposure, eating tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, paprika and even putting chamomile tea bags on swollen eyes. I was having breakthrough bouts of angioedema even with benadryl,zertec, xantac, and hydrozazine. It is important to figure out which kind of angio edema you have. If you have hives or angioedema that goes on formore than a short time then it is idiopathic.
151263 tn?1243377877 changed to wellbutrim, but I never got rid of that anxious feeling that Celexa helps with. Switched to Lexapro, heard it was better than Celexa and was still wanting to lose some of the weight I had gained in 4 yrs. Lexapro still didn't work as well as good-old-fashioned-made-in generic-form-only-anymore...Celexa. I switched back in Sept. All of us have different chemistries, hope you find something that works well for you. My sister and Dad take Zoloft, brother takes celexa.
Avatar n tn I looked out of the window and the blue sky, warm sun, and other people on the highway and just told myself that everything is okay, there is air out here for me to breath, and its a beautiful day. I was proud of myself for doing it and will probably try again this weekend...
Avatar m tn I was assured that I would not become addicted again from this short exposure. We will see ... what a disappointment. And I have been researching citalopram (i.e. celexa) to see how bad it can be ... Thanks for giving me advanced warning of this possibility.
Avatar m tn D3 use emulsified form and also get some sun exposure-best times 11-2- contrary to most suggestions- is the best time for SAFE exposure to UVB rays as long as you limit the exposure time. Please research this well as this deficiency is associated with a multitude of health issues! And a lot of info out there is WRONG- including many medical studies!!!
544292 tn?1268886268 Good Morning Tramadol Warriors, Welcome to the room, snuggle down and make yourself comfy. You can quit tramadol. You can stop. You can recover. I believe in you!
Avatar n tn I suggest keeping a journal of everything from, foods, drinks, chemical exposure, medicines, stressful situations, and even the weather, as any of these could be triggers. I use a large 3 ring binder filled with paper as a journal. Belly Breathing Exercise 1. Place one hand just above your belt line, and the other on your chest, right over the breastbone. You can use your hands as a simple biofeedback device.
Avatar n tn Ssri's havent worked for me for a variety of reasons (allergic reaction to Celexa, inability to properly metabolize Prozac, and so forth). Wellbutrin almost put me over the edge with the anxiety. My family has a history of depression, so I may be an uncommon case, but there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the tetracycline made the depression and anxiety present when it did -when I was 35 years old.
Avatar f tn I get these unexplained chills all the time, where im freezing cold with goose bumps all over my body. They hurt and I can barely walk they are so bad sometimes. I check my temp when I get these episodes and its perfectly normal. I do not have a infection or am not sick. Im not even in a cold environment. Everyone around me is not cold. Its the weirdest thing, and I cant find a answer for it. Its like my body is messed up and sending these chills for no reason. Please help.
Avatar m tn It's getting to the point where I'm afraid one day that I won't be able to even get into the thing. My Dr has had me on Prozac and Celexa but I'm now off of both due to the bad side effects I was having. I go back again on the 17th of this month to see what else they'll prescribe. Anyone else have this "phobia"? Thx, Thom.
Avatar n tn I feel like hell. I'm shaky, clammy,depressed and cranky. By the way, I too was given Neurontin and like Joe, I didn't notice any difference. My doctor gave it to me for nerve pain and he pointed out that it was "non addicting." I took one that night and never noticed anything. The pain was still there. I read about it on the internet and read that it was for seizers...so i stopped taking it.
Avatar n tn I am having extremely debilitating anxiety right now. Mild chest discomfort but I focus in on it so much that it becomes unbearable. I am always aware of my heartbeat and like above I focus in to it where it just drives me insane. I am expereincing undescribable levels of discomfort and I just dont understand whats wrong with me. My heart rate throughout the day is 90-100 bpm resting, and it shoots up even when I do simple tasks such as walking.
Avatar f tn I made a appointment with a doctor he ran all kinds of bloodwork.Everything came back just fine.Soo he decides to put me on Celexa and Xanax,as soon as i took the Celexa i thought i was going to die,so that ended me up in the ER,once again they ran all the bloodwork and it was fine.Also had EKG(fine).The doctor came in and told me i need a behavioral doctor,and a check up with normal doctor.I was mad they didn't give me MRI,and just assumed again it was ANXIETY.
