Citalopram and acne

Common Questions and Answers about Citalopram and acne


739988 tn?1386676569 I know the meds we all take have many side effects. I was wondering if any of the meds cause severe acne problems. I am in my 30s and still have acne problems. Please help.
Avatar n tn 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. I have reduced from 150mg daily to 75mg and I'm now on 37.5mg. See your doctor for a suitable acne medication. Oral antibiotics can be helpful.
Avatar f tn It was so bizarre. I jolted awake have these weird heart beat palpitations and i felt extremely hot and flush and started to sweat. There was a type of shocking pain for about half a second and then my eyes popped open and i was breathing heavily because it scared me that i was just shocked. I have experienced that "falling" feeling when i doze off, but this was nothing like that. I was dead asleep and felt like i had been shocked. Has anyone else ever experienced that?
1128565 tn?1316724743 Well these so called clever Dr's just label me as depressed as they do!! Also tell me depression and hormones have nothing to do with thyroid trouble, idiots!! Any way they change my medication from Venlafluxine 150mg's to 20mg's Citalopram. Considering the big change I sailed through except restless legs.

Avatar f tn i've been searching and reading and the itching is driving me nuts. i too have been diagnosed with "general skin rash" "scabies" "dermatitis allergen" or even the "perhaps its a reaction to your various meds" and reduce me down or eliminate the meds, but not the itching. i have been taking pics over months - it appears below my right elbow ... then above my left elbow ... my right wrist ....
Avatar n tn The symptoms in total have been nausea as in complete loss of appetite , heart palpitations, sensitive skin , rashes, acne, anxiety ( that is mind blowing and body trembling), depression, muscle weakness, blurry vision, brain fog, and when the panic attack starts it's like I can feel it at the back of my neck ugh, I've also had a pain in my right side ( I attribute to antibiotic) along with tiny stools (irregular) and gas in stomach constant feeling of needing to burp after I eat.
Avatar m tn At one month you should see wither or not it is helping with the acne and/or the itching . If you have any trouble finding any of these, talk to your local pharmacist as sometimes they keep the stronger ones behind the counter. Don't worry that does mean that is needs a prescription. Let me know if you have any questions about this. Have a great day.
Avatar m tn Am a 25 year old male living in Norway, around 70kg and 174cm tall. Suffered from depression at young age due to acne, general existential despair and a whiplash that left my neck and back hurting ever since(elementary school). Took "Roaccutan" for acne, it left me even worse off mentally.
Avatar n tn The itch usually starts late summer and stops sometime in late fall. My research and experience has lead me to believe that my condition is cause by exposure to the Sun. The exposure "accumulates" over the spring and summer, and the symptoms manifest after a period of exposure and subside after a period of avoidance. What I have done to manage the symptoms is as follows: 1. Try using an ointment that contains Menthol like Icy Hot on the effected areas. 2.
Avatar f tn i feel like i am losing my mind or there is something mentally wrong with me. I have had depression and anxiety on and off since i was 15. I am now 22. The last 2 years it has been getting worse and worse, resulting in time off work 3 times in the past year. I was feeling better and back on the road to recovery after my last bout of it in September, but since i had an MRI scan a month ago i have felt like i am going insane!!!
Avatar f tn Hi Everyone, Please keep your fingers crossed and say some prayers for me. I am having a baby due on Monday the 12th. I had to stay on my Seroquel the entire pregnancy. I was on 400 mg before becoming pregnant and tried to lower it down to 300 mg when I found out. I had to go back up to 400mg after the first trimester because I became moody, and angry. I was on birth control that didn't work due to my hypothyroidism. This is kinda my second Seroquel baby.
Avatar m tn You've got to remember that your still a teenager and probably in the most stressful period of your life so far and whilst your dealing with that, you're also dealing the normal hormonal changes, impulse maturity, peer pressures, alcohol (legal drinking age in OZ) your expectations and new adult responsibilities etc and if you were prescribed Roaccutane for acne, that definitely could of been a negative contributing factor.
Avatar f tn If you can use alternate forms of birth control I would try stopping and see what happens. My period has been on time since I stopped and they have been fairly short and light. Putting all those hormones in our bodies certainly has consequences and I think increased anxiety may be one of them.
Avatar n tn Hi, The skin on the surface of your fingers and toes is different from the skin covering the rest of your body. It’s thicker due to constant contact, abrasion, and pressure. Your fingertips and toetips contain networks of dense, tough connective tissue. This tough tissue anchors the outer skin to the underlying layers known as the “dermis.” If you soak in water long enough, protective oils get depleted from your skin. Water can leak in to your skin after awhile.
Avatar n tn It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement. Anyone with any help or suggestions I would REALLY appreciate it.
Avatar n tn I have been prescribed both Zoloft and Prozac with Klonopin for the symptoms of anxiety and depression, but I still seem to pick at me head. The kicker is that I also do this in my sleep. I will literally wake up with blood under my nails. What treatment options are there other than medication? Should I tell my primary care physician or should I talk to a psychiatrist? What are some of the causes of this, could it be OCD?
Avatar n tn Hey there, I'm a female, and I have red bumps all over my butt...and some of them even have white heads on them. It has spread a little down the back of my thigh, and i dont know if it is acne or neighbor had scabies, and i know what it looks like and how it "acts" I don't believe it's that. I don't know...what the f**k to do! HEEELLLPPP! It looks disgusting, itches occassionally, and just...I want it gone.
Avatar f tn ( I too have been diagnosed with BRP, and the only relief is from ice--but that feels so hopeless to me. Are there any other cures/solutions? I can not bear the thought of having to endure this torture the rest of my life. Makes me want to cry!
Avatar n tn It seems to be located within the windpipe or esophagus. There's no pain, just a friction/rubbing sound and sensation. The sound is especially audible if I open my mouth while twisting my torso. Three years ago I saw my Dr about it and she ordered a chest CT scan, which was clear. My concern is that the scan began at lung level and didn't cover my lower throat area, and that's where I think this is coming from. I'm also concerned because since then, it has become much more pronounced...
Avatar n tn I feel like my body's thermostat is broken and I'm constantly overheating. I've been taking Claritin and Benadryl but that doesn't seem to help at all. My doctor also gave me a prescription medicine called Atarax, which only makes me drowsy and doesn't help the itchy feeling. Any suggestions? Btw, I've taken blood tests to see if there is anything wrong but everything came out fine.
363682 tn?1299492962 They are not sharp pains but more of a constant 'throb' and can go on for hours. Pain relief medication does nothing and the only relief I can get at all is the application of something topical like '4-Head' or the American 'Head-On'. Although I have been a reasonably 'active' drinker in the past, if anything now, at the age of 61 (male), I rarely have more than two drinks at a time ... which is why I'm surprised at the onset of these headaches.
