Cipralex and seroquel

Common Questions and Answers about Cipralex and seroquel


202665 tn?1248810333 I'm switching from 90mg Cymbalta, 50mg Trazadone, and 10mg Ambien to initially 200mg of Seroquel and increasing the Lithium to 1200mg. I'm wondering if folks have found Seroquel to be better/worse and if any withdrawal was noticed in changing.
Avatar n tn I take seroquel, cipralex and have been taking NeoCitran for a bad cold. I feel down, negative, tired even a little depressed. I wonder if this a side effect of the anti-depressent mixed with the cold medication?
574118 tn?1305138884 I thought it was my illness but the guy said it's from the cipralex so that was good news and he upped the seroquel to 50mg. Now this i need your view on it: one of the reasons my original pdoc didn't put me on AC say, he said a long use of them will mke me numb and dysphoric, is this true?
915369 tn?1355318410 It's like I can hear their thoughts and I know it sounds far-fetched and crazy but I can, and I know it's not normal. I'm not sure but this sounds manic to me, but it's more manic than I usually get... I've been trying to get in contact with both my therapist and my psychiatrist since Wednesday but they haven't been calling me back or anything. I'm at a TOTAL loss as to what to do... Do I wait this out? Do I go to the hospital? If I go to the hospital what happens to my job?
3178266 tn?1344539916 I take prescription medication on a daily basis dealing with anxiety, depression, mood and personality disorders. Will my meds hurt my baby? I take Clonazapam, cipralex, epival, and seroquel.
Avatar m tn I have tried Cipralex, Efexor, Fluanxol, Xanor (Xanax), Rivotril, Seroquel, Ritalin, Wellbutrin, Esperide. All had horrible side effects and and had to stop and try something else. I am currently taking Valdoxane and Molipaxin, but feel completely detached and unemotional, which is a problem as I have been married 9 months and my wife is 7 months pregnant. My doctor hads taken my off Molipaxin and prescribed me Lyrica to take in conjunction with Voldoxane.
Avatar m tn I cant suggest any medications but i my good mix is Lithium 1000mg - Seroquel 300mg, and my doctor is looking into Ziprasidone as well but not sure on that yet. I wish the best for you.
Avatar n tn I just increased Paxil from 10 mg to 20 mg taking in am after 10 days at the advice of my doctor. Taking in am with breakfast and my vitamins. I am also taking 75 mg of Seroquel and 30 mg Restoril at bedtime for insomnia. Even before starting the Paxil I was extremely tired during the day but when I tried to reduce Seroquel to 50, I would wake u p prematurely after about 6 hours sleep ( 10 pm to 4 am). Now with the Paxil I am even more tired despite exercise and a good nutritious diet.
574118 tn?1305138884 So i phoned one pdoc (both aren't around) he said no need to augment the seroquel but i can increase the benzo to 0.5mg and go back to the cipralex of 5mg again. Perhaps this could not be the optimum solution, but since i found this new job which i FEAR to LOSE very much. Could you kindly HELP me at the moment (just try to give an opinion as you can) so that I can get stabilized. Perhaps some of you will advise other solution of stronger MS etc...
Avatar f tn my degree went down the drain, i cant even hold a simple job because my anxiety has taken over my life! And its making me hate everything and everyone. And the only way to get attention to my problems is by cutting.
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.
Avatar f tn /Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) ( Am slowly weaning from Cipralex/Escitalopram as I gained weight on it and other side effects) Am down to 5 mg of Cipralex at nite along with 50 mg SEROQUELXR for sleep (have been taking the SeroquelXR 50mg for approx. 6 months now as when I'd initially weaned from the Cipralex I was experiencing some sleeplessness etc.) For approx. 3 months now, I have had a tic occurring with my lower right eye lid; quite frequently and noticeably.
Avatar f tn I am going through the same thing you are right now, also on Zeldox (Geodon in US), and Cipralex for depression. If you just started on the Seroquel, its going to take some time for your body to adjust to the new med., so insomnia is part of the side effects. I am lucky in the fact that I am not working right now because of my disease, and the advice my doctor gave me was to "go with the flow", sleep when you are tired.
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.
1052851 tn?1307744760 He notices the slightest changes, so I went back on the noon Seroquel, and I told him I had only stopped the 100mg, but after thinking about it and chatting with ILADVOCATE, 100mg of Seroquel being stopped would be noticeable. I am coming to the conclusion that I will most likely have to take these pills for the rest of my life, if I want a semi-normal life.
Avatar f tn I wake up in a state of panic, palpitations, difficulty breathing, hot flashes, feeling of extreme terror, and I'm afraid to start my day. This sometimes continues for 3-4 hours and improves gradually if I take my Seroquel 100mg. But some days it continues until I go to bed. Initially I was ok in the night, semi-normal, as if I'm not the same person that was in extreme terror in the morning. But these past two days the uneasy/fearful/anxious feeling has lasted the entire day.
Avatar f tn My problem is that I still have alot of anxiety and depression. I have high and lows in my moods and when I have a high it is great. Is this much shifting in mood and energy levels normal in the withdrawl phase or could it be something else?? I have also noticed a tingling sensation in my head and my eyes feel funny. Can anyone give advice for the depression and anxiety like natural remedies such as vitamins.
Avatar n tn what vitamins and natural remedies (herbs) should i avoid when on cipralex and seoquel ?
Avatar f tn Hello everyone, I have been lurking through these forums and finally decided to reach out in hopes that the wonderful angels here can offer some support and guidance through these tough days. I am 37 year old, professional, wife and mother to a sweet 3 yr old boy. I was started on Lyrica for neuropathic pain 3 yrs ago. I decided to come off the med over 2 months ago and was thrown into a stormy withdrawal period.
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....
5093508 tn?1390547531 She prescribed Seroquel, which made me worse, with nausea to boot and I felt weird, like all the familiar things around me, were unfamiliar and I felt disoriented and scared. I weaned myself off it, as when I researched it, I saw the horrific side-effects and I wasn't willing to have those a minute longer than necessary, to get off it. She put me on 50mg Zoloft.
1052851 tn?1307744760 Took my first Abilify 10mg - see if I can tolerate it and if it curbs my appetite
1012542 tn?1313358480 Currently on Effexor XR, Depakote, and Seroquel. Still seems like not enough relief. So to add Abilify and discontinue one or leave it alone? My Phd. is not much help on this one, I think I've burned him out. I only see him now for 15 min. med mgmt. sessions and then see my Psychologist for therapy. Any thoughts on this one good people?
1926604 tn?1322965005 i have been on lexapro for over a month and have been upped to 20mgs a week or 2 ago. It is not helping. i don't want to clean. I don't want to cook. food doesn't even sound good. i am loosing weight. i am cold all the time. i was thinking about mentioning wellbutrin to my doctor. Any advice?
874521 tn?1424120397 The 1st to have drawn my attention to this is LeftCoastChick which is true. Again lamictal works upwards and seroquel works downwards so equalising each other (my engineering sense not the clinical one). So i am positive that this the right combo. Finally if you consider the production dates of these 2 drugs they are the latest except abilify among all the bloody others.
574118 tn?1305138884 Now comes the turn of the risperidone (took 7 years non-stop) and seroquel (2 years and used to stop my mixed states). However if I were cyclothemic then it's only the AD which made me so, and the dose is minimal and by the way each time i consult another stupid ugly pdoc he would tell me you don't take meds rather these doses help you only to sleep. So tonight i won't take them and we will see. Do you know what will happen if i live till tomorrow ?
Avatar m tn He is right about seroquel, it's the best in my view and people's view. However seroquel won't help you much in your depression and the therapeutic doses of it will make you lethargic, so it's a kind of mild mood stabilizer - helps you to sleep wll - and you add to it your choice of antidepressant. Welbutrin is debatable whether it can induce mania, although they say like ILADVOCATE said that it's the best in this matter, i.e.

574118 tn?1305138884 So fearing from catching mania, i've given myself a break but then became depressed again the day before yesterday and with 3 hrs in the morning of motor activity and restlesness so restarted yesterday the cipralex based on pdocs view. Again the depression lessened directly but today i am very sleepy on and off (2 hrs asleep and 2 hrs awake all day long in addition to the 10 hrs at night). could you please tell me why i am so sleepy?. Is it because i was tired the day before i.e.
