Gabapentin and prozac

Common Questions and Answers about Gabapentin and prozac


974371 tn?1424656729 Saw a doctor at Stanford yesterday fir a second opinion. I had been tested by another specialist I had rapid gastric emptying and was put on Prozac and low dose Clonidine. Can't say I noticed much of a difference in lower abdominal pain, bloating, stomach pain and nausea. This specialist didn't feel the emptying was that bad and wants to treat me for IBS with this drug plus Activia and Lactulose (prebiotic) but it says laxative and I am not really constipated.
2033870 tn?1329484939 Just do a google search on antidepressants and rapid cycling. I was ultra rapid cycling taking an antipsychotic, lamotrigine, and wellbutrin. I only started getting better when I did the research on antidepressants and insisted that I no longer take them. Very odd medication choices. I've taken neurontin but it was for pain related issues not mood. Have you been unable to take standard medication like lamotrigine, lithium, or diprovalex?
329994 tn?1301666848 He was a mechanic, and many other things in his career and has had a devistating attack to his brain by Gabapentin. What I mean is he was a smart guy who was always on top of what ever was going on and now he acts like he has had a labotimy (sp?). I found him petting the coffee pot like it was a dog, saying how well it worked and how it was a mystery to him. Is that normal? I did not have these issues when I took it, I just always felt like it wasn't doing anything for me.
1168718 tn?1464987135 My symptons are still there, and I don't know if the Gabapentin is helping them or not, and I have been on it for sometime now. Like I said before, my Dr's aren't very with it, and I have to be my own advocate. So, I was just questioning if that seemed like alot we all know, some days and good and some are not.
Avatar f tn hi,I am on prozac 25mg daily,omeprazole 1 pill at lunchtime and gabapentin 300 mg at bedtime, xanax when needed for anxiety & panic .my question I also had took gabapentin 150 mg during day and found myself getting mad alot ,so I decided to stop it during the day and then wean myself off the 300mg at night, THAt was a big mistake, now MY anxiety & panic is 100% again I need help .
149816 tn?1212686941 I'll go and have a look at Wellbutin, I've not come across that so far. I've also found Prozac, Paroxitine (another anti-depressant), Gabapentin (anti-convulsant & nerve pain, seems to have a lot of side-effects and ? can have upto surgery), Clopadine (anti-hypertensive, already have lowish BP and ? okay before surgery)I'm edging towards Prozac at the minute, I've had it before without problems.
Avatar f tn This new office seems to listen - the nurse spent a half hour on the phone with me yesterday and then called me back about the files. I asked them to look into acquired LQTS due to the triptans and now the prozac and benadryl. The current doc dismissed this without explaining to me her reasoning. I keep thinking the original dr missed it, this one just rubber stamped his findings, and the ped just trusts the two of them. I feel like screaming!
Avatar f tn so tell me what would he do to help me now..back then hen put me on prozac and no benzo and sent me on to the next level of the pshy ward..i was impressed//haha i spent two weeks there and came out on ativan and cymbalta and risperdal.I have never been the same since..He really seemed like quack...
188500 tn?1207368551 prozac. plus i have a bottle of xanax around for the occasional "moment"....i seem to be doing all right except the prozac makes me want to eat a lot. i take it at night and even if i'm not hungry all day....well, there it is...what can I eat now?
Avatar n tn I'm now 27 and have had OCD since childhood and have been taken Prozac (50 mg) since last spring. I'm doing well and feel that I'm getting my anxiety and depression under control. My question is this...In mid-August I I woke up in the middle of the night with sharp pins and needles in the right arm, mild numbness in this arm, and numbness around my mouth.
Avatar n tn I started going to meetings daily , and got support from other addicts. I need to take Prozac for my depression and I also have had success with KAVA KAVA.
Avatar n tn I am now 35, 3 children and when i was diagnosed manic-depressive i was on prozac, wellbutrin and taking hi levels of prescription weight loss pills. I was losing my mind but i wasn't losing any weight! When my Psychatrist decided to try me on Topamax it was because of my anieity over my weight gain with the standard mood stabilizers. Within these past two years I have lost 38 pounds taking this medicine.
Avatar m tn Hi, How are you? False positive results may indeed occur with urine drug tests. There are many prescription and nonprescription substances that have been reported to cross-react with immunoassays and cause false-positives. However, all positive results are presumptive until confirmed using GC-MS standard. This is why it is important that an extensive medication history including prescription, nonprescription, and herbal medications be obtained from the patient. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn Hi, I havae taken a combo of effexor and paxil and gabapentin together for several years without any problems. Once they pooped out I switched to prozac and it is working good for now.
Avatar f tn But I had also been shoving gabapentin and prozac in my mouth ALL day everyday....BAD DEAL....stupid...of course, but in the drugged, scared mind set I had....I wasn't sure I could get off the hydrocodone and in my panic mode, I was overdosing on the proazac and gabapentin. (not taking as prescribed...imagine that? lol) So...all that to tell vision was majorly affected and it gradually healed....over time. Each medication we are on CAN affect our vision....I know for sure.....
Avatar f tn I am Bipolar/Personality Disorder and am on the following antidepressants: Prozac, Trazadone, Effexor, Gabapentin. I've rotated all bi/tricyclic meds and they no longer work. My problem is depression--I need to get manic. I'm a 100% disabled veteran, and get free medical care from the Phila VA Medical Center. The VA won't let my doctor prescribe Cymbalta, only the neurologists can. I'm scared--the Prozac is failing--what can we do now?
1142551 tn?1264740530 Well I notice the one common thing so far is that well all are not on DMD's and we all take Gabapentin. Me? Im also taking amitryptaline (spell?) prozac and nuvigil. And occasionally percocet for pain.
600041 tn?1356163729 Yesterday (Tuesday) my Psychiatrist basically informed me that the medicines I'm currently on, Klonopin and Gabapentin, are essentially doing 'all they can do' for me. I've been suffering from some rather severe depression lately, with anxiety continuing to be the beast that never sleeps. I've basically tried every type of anti-depressant in the book with very adverse effects, but the very first one I ever tried was Lexapro and I couldn't remember how my body reacted to the medication.
503727 tn?1210442710 I've been on Prozac off and on. And have had all the tests run many times. Anxiety is SO hard to deal with. Dizziness and lightheaded are annoying!
Avatar n tn Taking Effexor helped me get off of 1/4 of the dose I was taking, which was hopeful considering I remember when trying to taper off of it while on Prozac, I was hiking and saw a deer and it scared the life out of me. It's strange because I love animals. My anxiety was through the roof. On Effexor, I just got physical symptoms of anxiety when tapering off the kpin which I was too numb to notice.
Avatar f tn Some studies show Effexor to be superior to Zoloft, Paxil, Prozac, Lexapro and Celexa and similar in efficacy to Elavil and Imipramine (older TCA drugs with more serious side effects). You could try maybe a combo of Effexor and Rexulti. The Rexulti acts as both an alpha and beta blocker as well as a seratonin dopamine modulator. The alpha and beta blockage keeps my heart rate in the 80's instead of 110-115 that it was.
Avatar f tn I'm also always hungry for breakfast I had 4 eggs with a veggie burger and some turkey. I am not overweight, I'm skinny. Doc had given me prozac and made me more dizzy, it's been 17 months now. I live alone because nobody wants to be around me. I hate my LIFE AND REALLY DON'T WANT TO LIVE THIS MISERY ANYMORE. I cry hysterically everyday. Husband doesn't live with me and he only gets anxiety attacks and able to live his life normally.
Avatar f tn She was on Tofranil for 6 months which didnt help, then we tried prozac for pain which again didnt help she has just started Gabapentin and im hoping it works, Im in Australia and have never heard of this before and her dr's dont know much about it either. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome to Part 6! Please make yourself at home!
Avatar f tn Aropax can be better for anxiety than prozac. I think it is called paxil in the US. It should help and the tingling should go away if it is anxiety related. I've had a "buzzing" feeling in odd places and tingling, with anxiety Good luck.
544292 tn?1268886268 So I dug up some more info that I wanna share ... in case you are dying of curiousity. Or need more info like I do. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http***;read=3179 not just for breakfast anymore Posted By: mkny Date: Friday, 21 October 2005, at 3:53 a.m.
Avatar n tn Every test in the book I have been given. The last is a spinal tap for ms. I am really scared. My legs are week and feel disconnected to my body at times. I also have anxiety attacks even with enjoyable situations. I walk my dogs in the morning thinking this will help relieve the stress but come back exhausted, weak legs, wobbly head and with little will to continue the day. The smallest thing can turn me upside down. This started about two months ago.
183202 tn?1219857259 My name is Crystal, and since October 31st around 3 am, I have been in a constant struggle with problems ranging from clenching chest pains, heart palps, increased heartrate, head jitters/electrical vibrations/sensations through head and spine (like a painful electrical current that radiates up and down my spine), I have had my limbs go tingly, and even one time my right leg went numb and it kind of cocked up a little and went limp, so I was unable to move it...
Avatar f tn elavil, doxepin, remeron, trazadone, lithium, dexadrine, phenobarbital, celexa, zoloft, prozac, risperdone, triazolam, magnesium, calcium, vitamin D, xanax, triazolam, depakote, zolpidem, and gabapentin. The xanax kind of helped, as mentioned. The others did not. I don't know why I was tried on mainly psychiatric meds. I was diagnosed with benign essential tremor and benign fasciculations, but I feel they are part of the same problem since they flare up at the same time.
