1063764 tn?1272824664 Hello, I have a question about taking melatonin and fluoxetine in the same day. I've been on fluoxetine for almost a year now. I stopped taking melatonin when I started it because I read a few articles that it might potentially interfere. I was jw if anyone here take the two, and what your doctors have said or side effects you've had. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I experiended severe nausea and no appetite. 6 weeks later, I still have nausea from the Fluoxetine. Panic attacks are a little better but I am beginning to think I should have stayed on Zoloft because I can't recall feeling this bad. I am now seeing a psychiatrist and they have taken me down to 30 mg. of Fluoxetine in hopes of helping my nausea. They feel the Fluoxetine 40 may have been too much. This is now my 6th week and feeling frustrated.
Avatar f tn I personally had the side effects of extreme tiredness/ lethargy, lack of motivation and slight Nausea. After four weeks I still get anxiety but I'm more in control and it doesn't go 'so deep'. My doctor has recently increased my dose to 100mg and only feeling ok but still have to tiredness. It's early days but yes I'm experiencing some positive benefits from Sertraline at this current time but you MUST be prepared to to ride out the temporary side effects (1-4weeks) upon starting them.
Avatar f tn So this morning iv put my foot down and told my doctor I knew fluoxetine was doing nothing for me like it had done 3 years ago and needed a change after persuading him and listing all the side effects I was getting he changed me to mirtazapine 30mg to be taken a night with a good drink of liquid my post really is to anyone out there have they had this change and was it better for them?
Avatar n tn I've been taking Fluoxetine (generic Prozac) for a few years now and about 6 months ago I upped my dosage. My sex drive on the lower dose was already low, but now it's almost non-existent. At first it wasn't a problem because I haven't been seeing anyone, but now that I am I would really like to try and fix this problem. Since I'm female feel like this is going to be a more difficult process. Would anyone know of any supplements that can help this side effect??
Avatar f tn I can usually go untill around 2 or 3 before I start feeling jittery and have to take another Klonopin. I started on the Fluoxetine at 40 mg and I just went to the doctor today and she increased it to 60 mg. Does this medication really work for panic attacks and anxiety? I'm so afraid it won't work, and I just don't feel like myself. Sometimes I cry which does relieve the anixety, but is it normal to be so tearful? I'm not usually a depressed person but I just feel sad that I have this problem.
Avatar f tn Is this normal? Should I stop the med? I called up the hospital to check and they said nausea and reflux is common and if I can persist, I should wait a bit longer as the good effects come in later but it has been a torture every night. Please advice.
Avatar n tn I've been tested for diabetes, hypothyroidism and anemia and all the tests came back negative. I take Fluoxetine for depression but it doesn't help. The doctors keep blowing me off, telling me there is nothing wrong with me. But I don't feel normal and healthy even though I exercise, take vitamins, eat great and overall treat my body very well. What is wrong with me? I am getting so desperate. Please help me?
Avatar m tn nausea, loss of appetite, diarrhea, dry mouth, trouble sleeping, dizziness, drowsiness, weakness, or sweating may occur. Unusual or severe mental/mood changes such as anxiety, weight loss, and vision changes may also be observed. If this headache persists, have this checked by your doctor or be referred to a neurologist for proper evaluation.Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn Hello there, Fluoxetine or Prozac belongs to the group of antidepressants called selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors. (SSRIS). These drugs tend to cause less sedation and have different side effects to older antidepressants. Fluoxetine or Prozac elevates mood, increases physical activity and restores interest in everyday pursuits. Prozac is used to treat depression , to reduce binge eating and purging activity ( bulimia nervosa) and to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Avatar n tn First, I will feel a bit dizzy and nauseas, then I will have to run to the bathroom because the diarrhea hits me and I feel like while I'm going to the bathroom I will pass out, then the nausea and dizziness with cold chillls and then I am hot so I have to take the sweater off that I put on because I was cold. I am 30 years old and I have a mild case of lupus that has been under control with plaquinil over the past ten years.
Avatar m tn Mild cases usually require about 200 to 800 mg per day, but more severe cases may need up to 2,800 mg per day. Side effects are occasional and mild—nausea, loose bowels, agitation and anxiety, headaches, and palpitations. This stuff can be expensive, but COSTCO has a product that’s reliable and cheap—$39.99, which is less than a dollar per dose. Go to www.costco.com.
Avatar n tn The first 3 weeks went fine with expected dizziness and nausea. But the past few days I've been experiencing depression. 1) Is this normal? Perhaps the paxil is out of my system and the prozac has not kicked in yet? It's a bit weird because I was not depressed during the last 3 weeks. I hope this goes away.. 2) How long does prozac take to fully "kick in" ? 3) I also take 2x .5mg klonopin a day as needed (as I did with the paxil) but I was just reading this on wikipedia..

7665079 tn?1393187282 Many people with neurocardiogenic syncope develop adaptations to keep from fainting, such as crossing their legs, fidgeting, or sitting or lying down when they get lightheaded or tired, but the tilt table test prohibits them from performing those natural defenses. As a result, lightheadedness, nausea, and fainting can be provoked during the tilt table test. Fatigue and malaise may occur for a few days after the test is performed.

Avatar n tn I do have alot of anxiety, which i'm taking novo fluoxetine for. I also take gravol each day because I get nausea all the time. Does anybody know what might be going on with me? Could it be serious?
Avatar f tn I get hungry but I always feel butterflies in my stomach and I have no appetite. I started taking fluoxetine again for the 2nd time (I went off it a year ago cuz I was able to manage my anxiety... big mistake). I have been on 10 MG for 3 days now. I don't really remember how I felt before but I am starving. I am so hungry but feel nauseous all the time and nervous. I am so afraid to eat! Does Prozac eventually help nervous stomachs to the point where I can eat again?

Avatar m tn Hello Well i have been bothered with this pain for two years now it became worse and worse now.
446896 tn?1237806342 Horrible muscle pains, tingling, numbness, nausea, fever, headaches, lost 10 pounds that I couldn't afford to lose, and perhaps most horrendous anxiety through the ROOF. It is 3 months later and I am still dealing with anxiety, nausea, and not feeling right. The anxiety nearly led me to the ER this afternoon because I was going out of my mind. I never had any panic or anxiety issues prior to the steroid use. This is all new and very scary. My GP.
Avatar m tn Your pharmacy and your doctor's office, probably have a record of which brands you used to take and are now taking. I only asked, so I could google and see if others have the same complaint you're raising about a particular brand.
Avatar n tn I had the same thing on November 19th 2013 and literally thought the ER was going to come back and tell me my pancreas or liver was shot. they did ct scan and blood work and everything 'showed' normal. they recommended I see a GI doc so I did and he did an endoscopy, came back completely normal.
86075 tn?1238118691 It was the longest 10 days until the nausea and the yuck feeling left, now I feel a lot better and sleep all night. You have to stick with it, cause it takes so long to start working, but it was worth it for me.
Avatar n tn I have some other things happening, and don't know why and wanted to ask if anyone else has experienced any of these problems when they quit taking Effexor. I have severe nausea and my taste buds have changed where nothing taste the same and most things taste awful! This has been going on for just over a month with no relief. Even my mountain dew taste like ****! Has anyone had similar experience?
Avatar m tn I took fluoxetine for 10 days and developed ringing in my left ear. It has been 33 days since my last dose was taken. Will it stop eventually? I can't sleep and had to start taking xanax for anxiety and panic attacks because it drives me crazy. I am desperate for help. I saw an EENT and he sees nothing wrong with my ears. I also stop taking all my vitamins and simvastatin just to see if that will help. Have you heard of this before. My dose was a childs dose (.5 mg).
