Celexa vs remeron

Common Questions and Answers about Celexa vs remeron


Avatar n tn I had NO side effects back then. My doc is thinking we will try serzone. Does serzone work similar to remeron? If remeron works will serzone likely work when all these others just make me worse? I'm so frustrated.
Avatar m tn Can I react differently to the Celexa than the Lexapro? Is it possible that with the Celexa I will have less side-effects since it's a more dirty version of the Lexapro it's suppose to have more side-effects no? Also, the only one SSRI who work in the past for my panic disorder is the Paxil... but hte Paxil do nothing for the social anxiety, like all the antidepressant meds I try...
Avatar f tn out there even though I think it is more for the shorter acting ones like ativan and especially xanax, I really think there is more of a stigma about benzos than there is for any of the other drugs. I had horrible experiences with paxil, celexa, atenolol and endured them just because I thought that in the long run, I was told, that they would make me feel better; well they didn't.
Avatar n tn Lexapro is newer and claims to be an improved formula over Celexa. Since you have experienced side effects from and quitted an SSRI, Praxil, you are wise to think about attempting another class of antidepressant like SNRI. There are 2 SNRIs, namely Effexor XL and Remeron. Forget about Wellbutrin and its combination since it did not work on you at all. There is no harm trying Buspar. What about Benzo, like Konopin, which will neutralize some of the initial side effects of some antidepressants?
Avatar f tn In fact when and if Nortriptilyne ever poops out on me, I plan to try Remeron. Remeron is a Tetra-cyclic antidepressant and Nortriptilyne is a Tri-Cyclic. I'm not exactly sure what the difference is between the two in terms of how they work in the body. I have heard that they produce very simmilar results. Good luck!

Avatar n tn Went from Fit to Fat in about 6 months of starting med's and have found no way around it. It's a choice...mental health vs. physical health.
Avatar n tn Now I am maxed out at 60mg Remeron and 80 Celexa, I have 2 therapist, one talk therapy and the other CBT! I went into to have the lap band done and was given Reglan as pre op med and that sent me into pure anxiety. What a nightmare, at that point I went to my pdoc and he told me to meditate, exercise and find my spiritualk guide. Well, that made me so mad here I spedn the last 7 years with a doctor that is all he could come up with?
179856 tn?1333550962 Now I started an A/D when I started tx in November. I found myself in the same boat however this time with Celexa. I couldnt stop thinking of food 24/7 and stuffing it in again. I stopped it over a month ago and dont feel any worse at all. Still depressed from the meds llike I was before. My appetite has been more than great all thru tx.
419309 tn?1326506891 My husband is scheduled for shot #1 on November 3rd, and although he has no clinical psychiatric issues, the NP has suggested he consider pre-dosing with an anti-depressant (the choices offered were Lexapro, Celexa, Effexor, and (sp?) Norapinephrine). It seems to me contradictory that the warnings on all these ADs actually point to possible side effects of depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts -- the very things these meds are supposed to prevent!
Avatar n tn So he decided to try me on Celexa which I have been taking for the last 3 months. I will be see the doctor again for a follow up soon. My weight is still up the 25-30 lbs. Which has me down!! I am still getting the starving feeling but not as bad as with Zoloft. Since I am worried about all the switching of medications. I thought I would try different things to help with the weight gain.
Avatar f tn If you have a panic disorder, you should be put on a SSRI like the Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac, Luvox, Celexa or Lexapro... if you can't tolerate them or if the panic disorder don't improve after at 8 weeks at the maximum dose, you should switch to another agent like the older TCA's (Imipramine, Clomipramine)... since the TCA's have more side effects, they are harder to start and they increase a lot the anxiety at first...
225570 tn?1191290673 5mg, baby asprin, nexium 40mg, Feel ok this morning woke up alittle anxious but just a tiny bit...so far klonopin vs xanax.......klonopin makes me feel more tierd, fuzzy headed, and makes me feel like i have a really bad case of ADD.......Im not sure but will all this pass? i think my body is just getting used to it..i remember this feeling when i first took xanax....kinda just want to lay around all day and do nothing....thank god i dont work..Well im a home maker i guess thats a job...
Avatar n tn I'm a 30 yr old married man, wonderful wife and daughter... I went to several doctors as well, one gave me Celexa for depression and put me worse... I'm taking Zoloft as well 50mg, and hoping it will work soon, only 2 weeks... I felt really realated to you and your post, I have a perfect family, a house, a good job and no stress whatsoever...
Avatar f tn I also take Tizanandine, 8mg a night, along with Baclofen, Remeron,and Konopin. This little "cocktail" is to help me sleep because the pain is so severe at night ,especially during the early morning. Last night I had some intense dreams and awoke feeling a little "off" this morning after taking the Lyrica. I believe it's because I take so much junk. How long did it take to work for you?
Avatar n tn Befoe going on Effexor, I had gained 20 from other antidpressants (Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa). Since beginning Effexor 1 year ago, I have gained a combined total of 53 pounds. AND YES I EXERCISE AND EAT HEALTHY! At one point I even got a trainer and still couldn't lose weight. I am afraid to go off Effexor because I'm convinced that I'm "A Lifer" as far as needing medication fro depression.
522415 tn?1242941355 tramadol, darvocet, vicodin, loratab, celexa, bextra, MANY diff. anti-depressants ETC. ~~ I go 2 the dr. EVERY month for pain management. I LOVE my dr.!
