Cipralex and caffeine

Common Questions and Answers about Cipralex and caffeine


Avatar n tn Spirulina or wheat grass are very high in B12 and chlorophyll, and might give you more energy as well without the nervousness of caffeine. And meditation not only can help with anxiety, it also can give you more energy. All worth a try. Good luck.
Avatar n tn i have been on alot of different meds and only a few didnt give me side affects! i was taking lyrica and cipralex, and also had been on fluoxetine, these are only 1s that agreed with me, i have an eptopic heart beat so alot of meds give me very fast heart palpatations.
Avatar n tn Intermittently I have taken Anti-depresant drugs which include Fluoxitene, Cipran and Cipralex. Afer taking drug for sometime I have hang over effect and hence I leave them. Cipralex used to suit me, but now I have started developing Rash with its use. I am very much confused as what to do. I want to keep studying but the problem is that I do not do well in exams because of poor memory. I am a medical doctor but not doing Clinical work and involved as Training Specialist.
Avatar n tn I am so worried that it is something so serious. I have seen 4 different doctors and had blood work and urinalysis done and always given anxiety as diagnosis. I am currently taking lexapro for about 3 weeks now.. seems to help a little but annoying head pressure/pain will not seem to go away. Does anyone have any advice?
Avatar m tn all is normal resault ,, then i went to the final doctor he said to me that you have enxiety and panic attack .. so i started to take cipralex 10 mg and he gave me xanax .25 mg .. cipralex 1 pill aday and the xanax if i felt so bad of the attack i take 1 pill ,,, still now taking the cipralex since 1 year and 3 month ,, sometimes i feel i cant breath well so i can make some hot ment to drink ,, makes me relax and it will go ..
Avatar n tn It quickly fixed my depression/anxiety problems, and I feel okay mood-wise. Although for the first few months, the libido change (MUCH lower) and anorgasmia had been hard to deal with in the begining, but seems to be better. The only thing is that I've noticed over the last several months an effect that is rather disturbing and I don't know if it's due to lexapro? Kind of an inability to think straight sometimes, or loss of short term memory. Just an overall feeling of almost a blank mind.
Avatar n tn Another possibility is caffeine, which can make you feel spacey when you drink too much of it. Hard to know how the thyroid and Cipralex relate to your symptoms, but a doctor should be able to give you more info.
503727 tn?1210442710 As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been on Effexor XR for 3 years and I have gained about 40-50pounds, most when my dose was increased to 225, now I am on 75mg b/c I'm getting ready to wean off the medicine in a couple of weeks,and I haven't lost anything yet. My eating habits have not changed and I exercise. I have always been underweight and I could eat whatever I wanted...I'm only 26 years old...I know my metabolism has changed some, but not enough to pack on 40 pounds.
1323357 tn?1274826939 an increase of adrenaline and decrease of dopamine - and this feeling of depersonalistion and derealisation is a result. You are not going insane and this will rebalance itself. What makes it persist is that usually a person does not know what it is and so worries/creates more stress this creates a self-perpetuating cycle.
Avatar m tn - Limit caffeine - coffee and stimulants can make it way worse - Really limit your gluten/wheat intake (This seemed to help a LOT) - Try to get better sleep - Drink more water - Get this book: "The anxiety and phobia workbook" (Sorry, I don't know the author!) - Deep breathing - Find a person you trust to tell your feelings to - tell them how they can help make you feel better (gentle back rub, head rub, etc).
480448 tn?1426952138 or was watching the world through a movie projector, instead of through my own eyes and mind. Therefore, I am going to share with you all what *I* know about these phenomena, and hopefully reassure some of you that this is par for the anxiety while irritating, maybe even is totally harmless. Derealization and depersonalization are two terms that are sometimes used interchangably. Truth is, they DO vary a little bit in their presentation....
574118 tn?1305138884 I phoned the other pdoc who confirmed cipralex too. Thank you for reminding me of not taking sugar and usually i never take caffeine. About losing my job. Yes in egypt and with the current recession there aren't almost any jobs offered anymore. it took me two years to search for one and luckily this is by far the best i could ever dream of. Not the salary but i work from 9am-3pm hellerious. So i really wish to keep it.
1626306 tn?1302487106 I've gone off the Lyrica and the Cipralex. I felt fine at first but now I feel like S--T.I had a cold/sore throat and now I have a sinus infection so it may be related to that but it feels like something else/more I just don't know what yet. I've tried melatonin to help me sleep-thought I was going to die,really bad reaction. How about you?
Avatar n tn What you have to remember is that palpitations are perfectly natural and can often be caused by exhaustion or stimulants like caffeine. Your heart is an incredibly strong muscle, and it won’t stop or explode simply because it’s beating hard and fast. A healthy heart can beat fast all day long and not be in any danger. Missed Heartbeats The medical term for missed heartbeats is extrasystoles. A missed heartbeat is usually an extra beat between two normal beats.
5887485 tn?1376146524 i thought I could manage on my own but I couldn't possibly.everyones triggers are different but caffeine,certain meds,lack ov sleep and stress all play a part in me going hyper so it could b that u just need to sort something out that will stop u going that way.
Avatar m tn One thing ive noticed is my anxiety symptoms are massivley amplified after a night of drinking, the more i drank the night before the worse the anxiety. ive been on a few types of pills to stop it cipralex and athenolol neither had any effect what so ever. im starting to feel like just giving up with doctors and pills and just living my life with it, how ever i really dont want it to get worse. What can i doooo??? please help me and feedback would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Paul.
Avatar m tn my anxiety increased to an extent that i couldn't sleep properly anymore, and started researching heart attacks and symptoms and statistics left right and center...till after 2 weeks i had a hypo tension, and heart started racing, dry mouth, fear, i was rushed to the ER, where they did EKG, and blood tests and everything was normal. I was told it was an anxiety attack.
Avatar f tn When i have a plapitation i panic, i had been free of all symptoms for a year but they have just come back, i am slowly getting better, i am taking 160mg propanalol (beta blocker) a day and 20mg Cipralex (anti deprressant) a day. What else can i do to stop/reduce the panic and palpitations? i dont drink or smoke or even have any caffeine. i am overweight but recently went from 17st 7lbs to 14st 11lbs and still trying!
Avatar n tn I think I am suffering depression so my doctor has prescribed me lorazepam 1ml 3 times a day, and cipralex 10ml 1 a day. I have boughts of nausea, not actually throwing up just heaving which may be anxiety, I have been on the lorazapam for two months and the cipralex for three weeks but no possitive effect yet. Can you tell me when I am likely to feel an improvement and start getting back to normal............
Avatar m tn Take it early in the morning and avoid caffeine. The only problem was that it made me soooooooo happy. My son was in a serious condition in the hospital and I was way too happy about it so my pdoc had me go off of it. There are other things that work for depression for me. A small piece of dark chocolate 60-70% cocoa daily. Omega 3 Fish Oil daily. Bread it has serotonin. Sunshine before noon for a half an hour. B complex vitamins, a lack of B12 leads to feelings of guilt.
1211508 tn?1343083205 I do take atenolol 100mg daily , cozaar, hctz , also clonazepam and cipralex for panic attacks which has helped a great deal.
Avatar m tn I am male age 38 and suffering PVC from last 6 months and also taking hypertension medicines from last 10 years. my ECG says i have 3 PVCs in one minutes.

Avatar f tn So try to not fret too much and watch your sodium and caffeine intake before and during your period and see if that helps. You may never be able to control your ectopic beats but you can control how you respond to them. So take a stand and refuse to let them dominate you. They may not be normal but they are not a danger to you so just remind yourself that when you feel something odd come on. Take care and stay strong.
Avatar m tn During my first arrhythmia episode I realized that I had had a lot of caffeine and very little food or water, and that was most likely a contributing factor. The second time I had had a decongestant and that again was most likely part of the problem. So I quit drinking caffeine and I no longer take any medicine with a stimulant. I haven’t had any more daytime arrhythmias after that lasted more than 30 seconds,and there have only been a couple of those-from the cold drinks.
Avatar m tn They have ruined everything in my life and I don't know what to do anymore !! doctors been telling how anxiety, stress and caffeine and all the other stuff can cause them and it's okay to have them. you just gotta have to ignore , that is soooo crazy !! because no matter how hard I try I can't ignore them :(( I feel everyone of these extra , skipped beats in my chest and they drive me crazy especially at night when I try to sleep .
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
Avatar n tn I've always been a pot head, I've always been fearless about psychedelics, about my own thoughts, so i didn't saw it coming... I was helped by a doctor and i ended up taking xanax and cipralex... I stood in a panic-like state with recurrent panic attacks for like 3 months. I resolved the panic attacks by jumping from a plane with a parachute, giving my body reasons to have a real panic attack.
Avatar n tn Today I panicked and called the paramedics who came and did a 12 lead and they said normal sinus with one ectopic and so I didn't go back to the ER. I had a normal echo 3 years ago. I already don't eat caffeine or sugar. Please reassure or sympathize with me. I'm going insane and have no idea what's causing this out of the blue. Why would they suddenly increase for no reason whatsoever?
2010625 tn?1329375656 I noticed that too much caffeine increases it though. If you drink a lot of caffeine, try cutting back for a while and see if that helps. Just don't go cold turkey, because you might get really nasty headaches and other unpleasant side effects.
