Fluoxetine and adhd

Common Questions and Answers about Fluoxetine and adhd


Avatar m tn Concomitant use of tramadol and serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as fluoxetine increases the risk of seizures and serotonin syndrome. It may also reduce the pain relieving properties of the tramadol. If you must take tramadol, do not take it at the same time as fluoxetine. Try to take tramadol and imitrex a few hours apart from the fluoxetine.
Avatar f tn As I earlier said, get the DM under control and then see how he is doing. I have included some links on bipolar and ADHD differences that you may find helpful. http://www.additudemag.com/adhd/article/2511.html http://www.currentpsychiatry.com/home/article/adhd-or-bipolar-disorder-age-specific-manic-symptoms-are-key/2e1d5ec4615c5b9da40d435fca5f560c.

Avatar n tn Hello, my son with PDD-NOS, ADHD and OCD has been on 10mg/day fluoxtine for 16 months as a treatment for his OCD. This medicine makes him hyperactive and so the MD prescribed Tenex twice daily (one and a half pill per day). His blood pressure is too low (80 upper) and so we are decreasing the Tenex, but he is starting to get hyper again. Any ideas what to try in order to damp down the hyperactivity? He was NOT hyperactive before the fluoxetine. The fluoxetine is working to control his OCD.

1063764 tn?1272821064 Hi, I've been on levothyroxine since July, the smallest dosage. I'm also taking 20 mg of fluoxetine. The past few years I've been very tired (which I contribute somewhat to the fluoxetine and is normal), and my memory seems to be declining (way before I started taking the fluoxetine). I am only 22 years old, so I'm HOPING it is due to the hypothyroidism. My question is if this is a possibility or not? I have trouble concentrating, but I'm pretty sure it's not ADD or ADHD.
Avatar f tn The only medication I am on is 20mg of fluoxetine and 54mg of concerta to help with my anxiety and ADHD. If you have any idea about what may be going on please tell me the pain has been bugging me for over a week so far and it is interrupting my sleep as well as distracting me from my studies.
Avatar f tn He takes adderall for his ADHD and fluoxetine for his anxiety. The anxiety started about a month or two after starting the adderall. My sons doctor told me that it is common once the ADHD is treated that other problems which were masked by the ADHD come out. He had anxiety about bad things happening to his younger brother, such as thinking he was going to get hurt while he was running, playing or climbing on toys. His anxiety is under control now.

Avatar f tn Yes I suffer from the same problems as you describe above and have been on and off fluoxetine for several years for major depression and I can reassure you that the side effects as far as increased anxiety at the beginning of treatment are common and I have had to take an antianxiety medication for the first couple of weeks to combat this effect. In 2-3 weeks it should subside and that's usually when I also start to feel the desired effect of fluoxetine.

5856747 tn?1403348682 For example, older teachers and grandparents who grew up to believe that the behaviour of ADHD children was simply wilful naughtiness that should be disciplined are now being asked to believe that it is a “disorder” that should be treatment. Symptoms and Diagnosis: ADHD is diagnosed on the bases of the child’s behaviour alone. This may be done using the International Classification of Diseases or ICD-10.

Avatar n tn Might fluoxetine and carbamazepine taken together be toxic? Might cause headaches?
Avatar f tn not sure what this means.. melatonin reduces the antidepressant effect of fluoxetine.. and then in the last sentence fluoxetine has lead to a measurable depletion of melatonin in people..
Avatar n tn Fluoxetine (Prozac) has the slowest elimination of the SSRIs.

Avatar n tn Hi guys. I was on Fluoxetine 10mg for about 6 weeks, and I didn't feel anything, so I raised it to 20mg. After just few days, I started to feel huge improvements in my depression problems, OCD, and specially social anxiety. And I didn't have suicidal inclinations anymore. After about a month, I visited my psychiatrist again, and he advised me to raise it to 40mg. For some reasons*, plus the fact that I did not trust him much, I did something foolish. I decided to change to Sertraline.
Avatar m tn My brother went to a psychiatrist and he prescribed him fluoxetine and xanax. He said that my brother should take one 20mg tablet of fluoxetine for the morning and 0.5 tablet for xanax for morning and night for 14 days . He said to take the 0.5 mg xanax tablet half in morning and the other half at night So, my brother took the fluoxetine and xanax for 14 days and then again went to the psychiatrist. My brother has not felt any improvement for his ocd or depression from the tablets.
Avatar f tn I have problems w/ADHD, Anxiety that I take medication for (dexadrin and fluoxetine) and assumed that the symptoms were probably associated w/it. i also have problems w/severe menstrual cramps,, hair loss, and hair breakage. The list goes on. However, while searching for info on the profuse sweating, I found that I had symptoms of hyperthyroidism. My symptoms of ADHD have worsened and now I wonder if it isn't my thyroid. What do you think? And........what should I do?
Avatar n tn My memory problems have started up again and word recall and forgetting what I walked into a room for and misplacing thigs has become irksome. I also have gotten sick very often since this July. First with a recurring cold that developed into pneumonia, then a sinus infection the next month, then gastroenterisis which left me needing three bags of IV fluids, then an upper respiratory infection. Dehydration seems to come on faily easily for me though I drink plenty of fluids.
