Effexor and green tea

Common Questions and Answers about Effexor and green tea


Avatar f tn My doctor old me that because these two meds work on different parts of the brain i was experiencing w/d from the Effexor- needless to say- I stopped the Wellbutrin and started taking th Effexor again. Now I want off all meds and am really not looking forward to the dizziness, crying fits, emotional outbursts and brain zaps. Here's to a hopefully short withdrawl!
Avatar n tn I have been on about four different kinds of antdepresent (laxapro, paxil, zoloft,prozac) and now effexor. It has been two weeks since i started taking effexor. I do not know if this is my wishfull thinking but I think it is working for me. But after reading some of these posts I am a bit worried. I mean effexor is my last resort. All other meds did not working for me.
Avatar n tn I am taking fish oil, vitamins, green tea and exercising about 6 days a week to help produce serotonin. Is there anything else that I can take in the vitamin/herb family that will help or do I need to see a psychiatrist to help me get off. With little kids at home I need all concentration that I can get. The medicine worked great but I feel that it is time for me to get off and would like a sex drive back if possible.
Avatar n tn i have been on 225 of effexor and it has helped me alot but the weight gain has been horrible. i crave carbs and feel hungry alot. but i tried goin off the effexor and had bad bad withdrawls. i took my time too. any ideas?
Avatar n tn Which would prettty much echo the 5http, sam e, green tea and one other thing. Let me know. I am going to try it today. I did not overeat at all on wellbutrin.
Avatar f tn I wound up in a psych ward and was put on different meds....but after I came home the yellow and green thing started and slowly built up to everytime I nap. Needless to say I did not complain ....smile. It is nice to know I am not alone.
280238 tn?1190227491 Does anyone know if Zalestrim is safe to take for someone with panic and anxiety disorder? the only stimulating ingrediant is green tea which Im sure isnt more than a cup of coffee. has anyone tried this before?
Avatar f tn What is estrogen gel and where is it used? Has it helped you? I ended up ordering some first grade green tea from Japan and I drink two glasses a day since July 2010 (love it) It is keeping my weight stable. Also from Japan I got some powdered collagen which I can't use anymore, because the guy didn't know I have mild blockage in my aorta and its branches. He told me to stop taking it because it could make it worse, but the green tea would help keep it clear.
Avatar f tn I have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees and hips. It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again.

Avatar n tn I've been taking 500mg metformin myself and I have not experienced any weight loss. I am actually taking it for diabetes treatment. But it has not helped with my weight loss.
Avatar n tn I smoked like half a cigarette and by the time we got back to his house I just finished it and got out of the car and everything went like green and couldn't stand I thought I was about to have a panic attack at first so I turned around and hugged him but everything was going black and I couldn't hear or stand anymore then I started shaking uncontrollably and I was getting cold sweats.
479244 tn?1271567259 I was doing some herbal suppliments but got scared of those and quit em all, although I still do a little reishi mushroom extract on occassion and lots of green tea and stevia, of course. I do not have a marching band, but we do have a concert band, jazz ensemble and drumline where I teach.... keep me posted as far as your plans go, we are kind of in the same wait and see situation.

Avatar n tn This might be the anxiety kicking in. I also have been drinking evening chamomile tea to help me relax and sleep at night. That has helped me sleep a little better. I have also been reading about magnesium deficiency (look up magnesium deficiency in google and read the article by Dr. Sircus) and Adrenal Fatigue (look up Dr. Lam and read his comprehensive article about Adrenal Fatigue). Dr. Lam also has some youtube videos about Adrenal Fatigue. Another doctor (Dr.
Avatar n tn This pain would intensify which would cause me to wince in pain and then release and then repeat all over again every 5-10 seconds for about a minute. This pain did not radiate anywhere but only within a specific point. Then this same stabbing sensation occurred half way up to the first knuckle of my right middle finger about 30 minutes later. Then immediately following this finger pain I felt pain in my right foot at the joint of my middle toe.
Avatar n tn They only last a few seconds. The build and peak like labor pains. Say I'm in the kitchen and I'll feel it coming on so I have time to brace myself. I'll set down whatever it is i'm holding and get ready. I have to cross my legs, bend my knees, hold on to something, clench my body tight, and try to breathe. Thank God it only lasts a few seconds. My 14 yr. old son witnessed it yesterday and tried to call 911. I kept signaling him not to. I knew it wouldn't last long. My gyno.
Avatar f tn I've tried zoloft, wellbutrin, effexor, valium, ativan, xanax, and all these do if anything is make me actually mad or even more anxiety. Can u please tell me the exact thing and where i can buy it that you took to get rid of anxiety naturally? And is there any natural foods with this and amino acids in it that I can eat naturally? Thanks so much sweetie, and congrats on all the time you've been off of these little demons.
Avatar f tn cod liver oil, an aspirin and Kanna at present. I have just started the kanna, green tea extract and cranberry capsules. I tried st johns wort but it upset my stomach. I want to stay off anti-depressants if at all possible, I gained a ton of weight on them and am quite scared of starting another new one. I tried escitalopram,trazodone and prozac. Put 2 stone on with the latter and the other two gave me other unpleasant side effects.
Avatar n tn effexor with drawl is no fun, dizzy, flu like symptoms, tummy up set, sweats, chills, vertigo, and more..I have all these and I am not going to go back to taking this drug. I take vitamins, minerals, hot chocolate, green tea, homeopathy is helpful, otherwise, I think sleep helps, it ***** to sleep so much, but better than feeling ill. I will try and post weekly or when i think of it to check in and share my feelings.
Avatar n tn I was on celxa ( bad dreams) cymbalta ( made me more depressed didnt leave apt for 3 days) the generic equiv to pamelor ( whooshing was too intense) and Effexor 75 mg sent me to ER, I had dizyness, tingling spine and hands and my Bp went to 168/94. I went back to doctor and he perscribed me a low dose Lexapro take one pill every other day, and he had me get Sam-E and a energy metabolizer which was called L carnitine I believe.
Avatar n tn WOW! 22 pounds is a lot of weight to loose in such a short period of time! Good for you!!! I hope that I am able to loose 22 pounds in the next couple of months. Are you following a diet plan and working out? I have not started working out yet....maybe one day...I don't have a diet plan either I am just trying to make good choices and watch my portions. This way I know that when I stop the shots and medicine I won't gain it all back. Lets hope!!! Best of Luck to you...
211940 tn?1267884866 However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm and noticed a hard soft tissue knot, and suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago I had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, I still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).
Avatar f tn i would advice you to drink a lot of fluids to keep you hydrated ( green tea, apple/orange juice, gatorades ) . This is very important.... Get some immodium for diarrhea, advil in case of pain and headches .... a magnessium+calcium and potasium suplemments will help you with muscles cramps and RLS ... Lots of hot baths you should ask your doctor to help you here too ... and stay here posting and telling us how you are doing or if you have any questions, ok ?
Avatar m tn ie sex drive, sense of humour, weight loss? And can I use paracetomels with this mix? And green tea slimming pills? I have a drink at the weekends which seems to be ok. A few bottles of wine.
1436182 tn?1283685313 Thanks to all of you for your advice, will certainly try the green tea and vitamins firstly and shall keep you informed of anything else my doctor can prescribe.
Avatar n tn when it comes to 'Sugar' in my 'Coffee' or 'Tea.' Also, I always remember whenever I was in the 'Hospital' and they gave me 'Introveinous' which consisted of 'Sugar Water' if they 'overdid it' such as giving me a 'second bottle' after a while I would feel like my whole body was "Tickleling" .....it was 'AWFUL!'.......I couldn't wait to see the 'Doctor' and tell him and he gave me something to make it stop! Those are some "good TESTS' you mentioned.
Avatar n tn Eat a better diet lower the sugars and the carbs, drink water ( a little lemon pinch of baking soda only) maybe some green or white teas. 2. Exercise moderately (walk in sunlight) 3. Read a good book or watch Family Guy ( reading makes me relax, Family guy carcks me up and laughing is a wonderful medicine) 4. Alcolize get the body away from acids ( I am trying but not so successfully) 5. Cleanse ( colon, liver, candida etc) 6.
