Avatar n tn This pertains to my first question about the multiple depression medication. Do these cause memory loss as well, for I have told my partner a lot of things about myself in just a matter of 3 months and she doesn't seem to remember most of those things. She also seems apathetic about what and how her kids talk to her. I don't know if this is a result of this medication or not.

Avatar f tn My tire blew today right before my doctor's appointments...all my tires were pretty much bald unbeknownst to me. Ugh. My oil needed changing a few thousand miles ago. My car is fixed (easy)...I have AAA, but my body is not. I wish I had AAA roadside assistance for that. Hey, I blew a kidney...Ok be there in 45 minutes, they show up in an hour, here's your new kidney! And they don't ask you for money cuz you're a member. But...life has to go and be hard, so that doesn't exist.
Avatar n tn t working like they once did. Could this be due to the addition of Zoloft or the depression itself? Or meds interacting in a negative way? I have an appointment for a med assessment with my neuro. 2 weeks from now..just curious of your opinion until then. I feel so helpless living in this physical/mental state, not to mention the chronic pain.
Avatar f tn I am currently looking for a new depression medication. I need some info on something that is NOT a SSRI, a hormone, and is not zoloft, celexa, or prozac......also something that does not contain salicylic acid aka aspirin. If anyone can help I would appreciate the help.
Avatar n tn Changed to Zoloft after heart attack and bi-pass. Zoloft apparently exacerbated my RLS so that I had to take Miripex. I have been off of antidepressants for several years, and need to start taking something again. Are there other antidepressants known to worsen RLS? (I am on plavix, as well as several other drugs.

Avatar n tn I'll try to make this brief. Have been dealing with depression since 1997 but have realized that I've basicaly been a depressed person most of my life. Probably due mostly to environment/family dynamics. Originaly started on Paxil and therapy in 1997 after a mental shutdown and made great strides (best thing that ever happenned to me). Have been in therapy on and off ever since.
Avatar n tn I HAD BEEN TAKING ZOLOFT FOR ABOUT 9 YEARS FOR DEPRESSION, ANXIETY AND PANIC ATTACKS. I DECIDED TO TRY TO GO OFF OF IT, BUT AFTER ABOUT THREE MONTHS, MY SYMPTONS RETURNED AND MY DOCTOR AND I DECIDED I NEEDED TO GO BACK ON IT INDEFINITELY, WHICH I'M OKAY WITH.
Avatar f tn Before finding out i was pregnant i was put on depression meds (Zoloft). I discontinued them as soon as i found out i was pregnant.. I have been told my depression will get worse than before after i have my daughter... How will that affect BF nd what medication would be safe if any???
Avatar m tn I know plenty about Zoloft, but I have never heard of the other two meds you mentioned. What I do know is that in some people (myself included) when the persons depression is of a severe level that it can be hard to find meds that work. I couldn't even list all the dozens of different meds I have been on in the past 18 years. More than I care to count. It is very seldom now that my Psychiatrist and I even find a combination of meds that even works.
Avatar f tn started Zoloft today

But my main concern is my anger i can not control it. i get angry with a drop of a hat. i still have intense anxiety & depression. i have a hx self multation.(cutter). since i have start paxil 3 large cuts. is this zoloft withdraw or paxil sideeffects?
Avatar n tn ve been taking Zoloft for about two months for anxiety and depression. My doctor recently increased my dosage of Zoloft from 50mg to 75mg. I'm taking 50mg in the morning and 25mg at night. What I was doing was cutting a 50mg tablet in half for the night time dose. I did that for a week and a half and started to feel better. Here is the weird part, because of insurance reasons when I went to refill my Zoloft they gave me a bottle of 50mg and a bottle of 25mg.
Avatar n tn My 16 year old daughter has been diagnosed with depression and started taking Zoloft 4 weeks ago. She has increased social activity and is not crying all the time. She has really benefited from the medication. The only 'bad' thing is that she has been having terrible migranes. She has always been pre-disposed to migranes (hereditary). What can she safely take and at what dosage? I know Triptans are out of the question. Also - How long does she need to stay on the Zoloft medication?
1041243 tn?1375230520 I have ocd, gad, and moderate depression (all have been formally diagnosed). A week ago my psychiatrist stopped my 200 mgs of zoloft and started me on luvox 50 mgs a day for the first two weeks then 100 mgs a day there after. A couple days later I started expiriencing major withdrawal symptoms, severe anxiety and panic (more so than usual), insomnia, and some slight agoraphobia (I don't like to leave the house, but I will if I need too) and even stronger ocd symptoms.
Avatar n tn My mom was diagnosed with major depression 2 years ago & responded well to medications primarily Zoloft. A year into treatment all her medications were tapered & discontinued. She then had a relapse after 4 weeks, since then she has been started on different medications each time & her symptoms continue to persist. Currently she is on Zoloft 100 mg BID, Elavil 75 mg BID & Bupropion 150mg QD.
1041243 tn?1375230520 Tuesday my psychiatrist stopped my Zoloft and started me on Fluvox (I have GAD, OCD, and mild/moderate depression). Well I've had some side effects that I can live with, but the past 24 hours I've been getting much angrier than usual. Like when my husband and I bicker a little, I get mad instead of a little annoyed. This happened once before when my former psychiatrist tried swithching me from zoloft to cymbalta, and I switched back after 4 days because of it.

324184 tn?1308076203 Nadolol + Zoloft + Alcohol I have been prescribed Nadolol for migraines, Zoloft for anxiety/depression and I am suppose to take both daily. I have drastically decreased the amount of alcohol consumption I intake compared to how much I consumed when I was younger. I do like to have a glass of wine or two on the weekends on occasion and I am wondering how bad it is for me considering the medications I am on.
Avatar f tn I started "Yaz" about 4 months ago because I was suffering from severe depression 2-3 weeks before my period. It has done absolutely nothing for me. In fact, my symptoms seem to be worse. On almost a daily basis I feel depressed, cry, feel alone, sad, stressed, anxious, overly worried and just miserable. My personality is high energy, motivated, happy, funny and just a positive person. So for me to be feeling this way is extremely difficult.
Avatar n tn Zoloft use can change how much medication you will need. It shouldn't cause hypothyroidism. I tried a search. Th high cholesterol may be a sign of the hypothyroidism. Also depression can be a symptom as well. I would look at it like this: You became hypothyroid, and in turn, got depressed and cholesterol increased. Then you were diagnosed. Give the meds time to work and make sure to get follow-up blood work to re-check thyroid and cholesterol levels.

Avatar n tn Taking Adderall with Zoloft may increase the amount of Zoloft in your system and could lead to serotonin syndrome - characterized by agitation, restlessness, aggressive behavior, insomnia, poor concentration, headache, paresthesia, incoordination, worsening of obsessive thoughts or compulsive behaviors, nausea, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, palpitations, or chills Though not approved for use in depression, Synthroid has been prescribed to treat depression when a person is resistant to other anti
Avatar n tn I had been taking depression medication since 1997, but for the past 4 years I was on Zoloft. It was used for depression/anxiety. Recently my doctor, not the one that prescribed this medication, wanted to start "weening" me off the medication because of weight gain and other issues.
Avatar n tn i didnt like taking the zoloft very much it was making really dizzy and tired but it has a different effect on everyone so giving it a try wont hurt.
Avatar n tn I have a couple of questions for you. 1) Could the klonopin be making the depression worse? 2) How do you recommend I proceed with stopping, since I'm down to .25mg every other day at lunch. 3)Could the klonopin be causing gastro problems and nausea? I'm a male, age 32, and have lost about 22 lbs since I started the klonopin. Also, two months back I had a very extreme reaction to Zoloft, which was originally given to me for anxiety...before the klonopin.
1032715 tn?1315984234 It sounds like you still need the 200mg so I wouldn't worry about cutting it back at this point. If you haven't tried therapy you may want to give that a try, it's often helps to get to the root cause of your depression if there is one. Things from our past that we haven't truly dealt with or tried to forget normally rear their ugly heads in depression and/or anxiety, making us deal with it. You still need the medication, so don't be in a hurry to get off of it.
