Celexa side effects acne

Common Questions and Answers about Celexa side effects acne


Avatar n tn Has anyone experienced any bad side effects from the hcg shots? I am administering them myself and just want to know what to look out for.
Avatar n tn I'm curious. I've seen alot of people using celexa complain of fatigue and weight gain which can be typical of some SSRIs. I've noticed that several people have had a drop in T4 while on celexa (TSH/T4 checked prior to initiating antidepressant therapy). Is there any literature out there on this? Can you offer some enlightenment? Thank you.
Avatar n tn Hi. This is really interesting. Research shows that, not suprisingly, those of us with acne and rosacea are more prone to depression and anxiety. I was prescribed Venlafaxine (Effexor) to help me deal with the anxiety and social phobia I felt due to my acne. It has really helped me, and not increased my acne. Acne is not mentioned as a potential side effect of Effexor in the leaflet enclosed with the pills. DO NOT stop taking Effexor suddenly because serious withdrawal symptoms may occur.
Avatar f tn I am so depressed sometimes I want to die and I want it to change but I'm scared to take this drug. Should I try it or what? I am so afraid of the side effects I don't know what to do.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed bipolar back in Jan at age 24 and since been taking lithium without many side effects except weight gain about 40+ and sleepiness. I didnt mind at first but Ive noticed I cannot lose the weight or get out of bed. Ive changed my diet, workout at least 30 minutes a day and do not eat past 6pm. I also have suffered from acne problems all of my life. Before being diagnosed it cleared up while I was taking bactrim and a topical lotion.
Avatar f tn I have anxiety/panic disorder and was on Lexapro for about 10 years before it pooped out. I felt it worked very well with little side effects. Since then I've been having trouble getting the anxiety back under control. I tried Effexor for 6 weeks. Too stimulating, gave me tremors. I have now been on Zoloft for 7 weeks. I find this one to be stimulating as well. I still have tremors and now have acne which I have never had in my life.
1325193 tn?1450131036 dont google side effects. Talk to doc. Don't know anything about tramadol. I don't believe this is a rebound thing. Just the price we pay for needing antidepressants. I do have friends on antidepressants who have lost a little bit after being on meds for a year or so..... You said it: most important task is to conquer mental difficulties, enjoy life...take side effects in stride. Most will ease off after a few months.
Avatar m tn I will tell you side effects from the Accutane in the 1st few mons. Dry lips, nose bleeds and aches in body... Then in my last month, thats when things got worst... I started to get EDGY, AGGRESSIVE and MOODY. few months after the Accutane my Acne started coming back and then before I knew it I was at the Dr.s and saying how I felt and he says I have GAD puts me on Celexa and Xanax. I am now on Lexapro and Xanax.
1243620 tn?1274794297 ). All awful side effects that conspired to keep me in my safe place at apt. rather than getting on with it. Since 2007, my doctor has asked me try 5 different meds: all cause extreme diarrhea; my guess is that the treatment for cancer has weakened colon: it destroyed my sphincter muscle as well. In these circumstances, clonazapam is my only option. A family tragedy occurred two weeks ago. My former husband shot and killed one of my sons and wounded the other.
Avatar m tn Started as a small red pimple that didn't respond to the usual (unscented soap, &Clearasil ointment), I paid no mind because it seemed to go away, but then came back. No crust, no blister, no leaking, no itching.
Avatar n tn About a week later the other side began to be tender to the touch, also the bump on the left side had gotten bigger. Back to the DR. I went & he said all was fine & to continue to use the ointment. The Dr. said they were caused from stress. After the last 2 to 3 years of my life it would br very difficult not to have stress. That was just before this past Christmas (my fist appt. with this Dr. was back in July 2004).
Avatar n tn Side Effects of Wellbutrin Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Wellbutrin. Seizures are perhaps the most worrisome side effect. Wellbutrin was temporarily removed from the market after its initial release due to the occurrence of seizures in some patients.
Avatar m tn next is a bone scan for me April 6th. I tried Lyrica and had bad side effects. I suffer from depression and anxiety and I got bad chest pains on Lyrica and felt as if a lump was in my throat. When i called the neuro that's when i got Tramadol, but I tried it and it only took away the flu like achiness, not the deep muscle pain. My neck lately has been killing me! My legs are also a major pain area. When I called about the Tramadol not working he gave me Savella.
2198057 tn?1338534805 Allow yourself to have your OWN unique experience. As for side effects, there are some more common ones, but most side effects will start to improve within a week or two (if you even have any). More common side effects are an increase in anxiety (feeling "jittery"), sleep disturbances (less or more), GI upset, headaches. Obviously, you are going to be more scared about side effects based on your experience with Celexa.
439168 tn?1307935340 How come the meds would work somewhat, great and then not so great? Why are those adverse effects or side effects would happen. How come other people have it so easy? I knew this doctor was very competent. His specialty was in treating mood disorders. He was really easy for me to approach and he paid attention. Don't compare yourself to others. Everyone is different, and things can change ith the med requirements.Everyone reacts different to meds and med combos. I can't take Lamictal.
Avatar n tn However it should have all major side effects listed. You may not think depression is a big deal, but it is. Or cystic acne being a big deal, but it is. Or the ovarian cysts I now have, But they are. and they hurt like h.ell. How would you like your hair falling out in clumps ? I dont think you would. How about having memory blackouts ? Not a good thing. How about not wanting sex ? My DH didnt like that aspect. How about finally having it and it being painful ? That wasnt good for me.
Avatar n tn Then more recently----my doc had me on Cymbalta with my current meds minus the Xanax but I made the personal decision to stop the Seroquel after reading the trememdous amount of horrific side effects out there, including massive weight gain-----with some, over 100 lbs in a year. Within 10 years, I went from 10mgs of the stuff to 600 to knock me out for sleep, as I always thought I was given it for my insomnia and not Bipolar.
Avatar n tn Still I wouldn't be surprised if it's a start-up side-effect. The good news is that these side-effects often lessen over time.
Avatar f tn However not ALL people experience side effects from this drug. But yes indeed this med can cause anxiety, agitation, heart racing, insomina, weakness and the list goes on....Just research this drug and you will see. And if does have lasting effects on SOME people. Even after taking it a lot of people on this same site have experienced on going side effects that get better with time. I am going to post my personal story below.
664546 tn?1225367634 I was on celexa for years, then went on cymbalta and had really bad side effects. (GI problems) I've been on Effexor for a year now, clonazepam and aprazolam... along with the synthroid, then doxycycline and bactriban for the (third) diagnosis of "acne and/or maybe dermatitis" (that ITCHES like flies crawling under my skin) , also albuterol and advair for asthma, and claritin for allergies and the "itching acne". When I said about the "ovals"...
Avatar n tn It helped tremendously with my anger and mood swings with little side effects..at first. I am a person blessed with height and a good metabolism. Even at 40 I had to exercise only moderately to keep weight off. In the last year, however, it all changed. I started gaining weight-gradually but noticably. Every time I noticed a weight gain I would restrict my diet and increase my work out. It seemed to help for a week or two but then the weight would slip back on.
Avatar n tn I havent had a soda in 5 weeks, and as far as the side effects go. Remember the side effects are possible side effects. The could happen to some, all or none. Its the chance we all take to get well.
Avatar n tn I have taken it without any problems or negative side effects. I ran out and have not taken any for 4 days while I wait for the mail order pharmacy to send me refill. I have not had any negative side effects from 4 days off, and if anything, I feel really good.
Avatar n tn My husband died 2 years ago and I went through a serious stage of depression. One and half years after his death I decided I needed help - I couldn't talk about my husband without crying. I couldn't go grocery shopping without balling in the fruit section (my husband loved fruit). I could start a fight in an empty room, I was so bad. After a year and a half I asked for help and my doctor put me on Effexor.
Avatar n tn days when I can barely function and have also experienced symptoms of hypoglycemia and panic attacks and or crying jags for no reason. I have been reading a lot about the Depo side effects some women have had and they mirror mine. I've had a thyroid test and it was fine, so I don't think that I'm diabetic. I have been trying to eat well and clense with milk thistle to try to hasten the exit of the Depo.
Avatar f tn I have been on it for a bit, slowly have gone up to 300 mg, slowly been having the wonderful weightloss side effect, but all my other side effects are oppisite of what is stated as what are probable side effects. Ok, no, I have not had any hairloss. As a matter of fact, if anything, it has been making my hair grow faster, and of that I am thankful, for I have had some mighty funky hair cuts this year. lol.
Avatar n tn I have stopped taking 40 mg of Prozac cold turkey and I had no side effects, and I have done that several times over the years. When I stopped taking Effexor, the side effects felt terrible. Even tapering it down I still felt the side effects although to a lesser degree.
Avatar n tn I only ask this because, when I originally started coming off of an SSRI, I was having unwanted side effects and I went back to the doctor and suggested that maybe I go much slower. It really minimized the effects and other than a headache and a little naseau, it worked for me. In my opinion, some GP docs, wean us off of these medications a little too fast...have you tried going back to talking to him/her?
