How long does lamictal withdrawal last

Common Questions and Answers about How long does lamictal withdrawal last


Avatar f tn Dizzy, nauseous, weak and am sleeping way too much even though it still feels like not nearly enough. My brain does not feel right. HOW LONG WILL THIS LAST? This is day 4. I have serious depression now instead of irritation. I could care about nothing. My brain is not functioning and I am one of those adults you hear about that goes back to college. I have major schoolwork due. My medication had not been changed in over 2 years. He had to take away my panic attack .
Avatar f tn How long is it possible for withdrawl to last? A year or more? I read that Klonopin can cause permanent damage to the nervous system- is this information correct? I feel this is so in my case. Can long-term use of the drug cause the body to experience pain differently? I recently had breast cancer surgery and experienced abnormally high pain levels.
Avatar n tn The withdrawal symptoms (sounds like yours) are usually over in three weeks. In the meantime, if they are particularly awful, as you have described, you can ask your doctor to prescribe some quick acting anti-anxiety drugs to help you with this period.
Avatar n tn Why didn't the doctor tell me ANY of this could happen? This is hell. There are so many different stories on how long this will last- it is really scary (and depressing) I am hesitant to begin the other meds (meclizine) as I think I'd rather try and "detox" all at once. I've already made it through 3 days without anything- does anyone know how much longer the symptoms last. I only used 2 dumb patches- how could they have been so harmful????
Avatar n tn However, he has these vomiting spells. Sometimes it's only once, other times, like last night, he goes on all night long. Is this normal withdrawal? He does have an extra sensitive stomach (perhaps from doing so many drugs) and vomiting isn't out of the ordinary for him. But I am concerned that maybe there is something more seriously wrong. Any feedback is welcome. Also, I have been reading the posts about Oxy withdrawal and want to put in a few words.
Avatar n tn How long does the body take to get rid of a drug such as Effexor? I have read anywhere from 2 weeks to a year. I have been taking good care of myself (without any help!!) eating right, drinking lots of fluids, and of course the uncontrollable sweating. Can this help? Please tell me some good news. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Good! How long have you been on those medications? I'm on Lamictal and Lexapro. I just started the Lexapro and I think I may stop as there are withdrawal symptoms with that one. Plus I'm mainly bi-polar. Lamictal literally saved my life. I used to go weeks thinking about suicide and how I hated *existence* itself. It's been four years and I still have not even contemplated suicide. I hope it's the same for you. To be honest, as someone in MUCH deeper than yourself, you should be fine.
Avatar n tn It still seems to be in my system. HOw long does this take? Will I ever feel like myself again? Does it stay with you or do any damage to your equilibrium?
1691275 tn?1322331107 is completely ignorant on this one - I'm sorry to say. Benzo withdrawal can last a very long time - and in fact, you are not supposed to stop it cold turkey as that can lead to disastrous results (seizures, even death). It's nothing to mess around with. Print the info you find on Dr. Ashton's theory and bring it to him. And hang in there - I quit xanax cold turkey almost one year ago and still have the occasional symptom which I know after doing the research is to be expected.
1134609 tn?1269275800 I was cycling all morning, I'd snap out of it for a little bit and then fall right back into the depression. This is exactly how I used to cycle, before being placed on Lamictial; up and down all day long.. But, the depression is much more severe this time arounf. Has anyone else had this issue with nicotine withdrawals and being BP? I really need some answers here, I'm pretty beat up.
10608291 tn?1411419202 I don't know if I can distinguish what is real emotion or withdrawal from Effexor, Lamictal, Remeron. How long does this last. I have been taking St. John's Wort, B12, Valerian, and L Tyrosene to build up my own natural supply of serotonin, dopamine. This crying thing is the pits. I'm so sick of medications. I want to have a baby without spina bifida or missing limbs and cardiac anamolies, I've been on and off meds for years.
Avatar n tn I did my best to lower the doses of everything but I hope what I am experiencing is withdrawal from these meds. The day I took my last 5mg Zyprexa I started having weird feelings that ghost are around me and touching me. It has gotten worse pretty much every day since. Two weeks into this I finally told my parents because I couldnt take it alone anymore.
Avatar n tn I have had bouts of flu type feelings and I feel very tired and worn out. Basically I feel like **** and I dont have the flu. My question is, How long does it take to get Zoloft out of your system? I know your never to stop taking SSRI meds abruptly but when you follow a good tapering schedule and you still deal with wwithdrawal symptoms that's enough to tick a person off. My doctor wants me to start Lexapro but he wants me to wait until Zoloft is completely washed from my system.
Avatar n tn I have to make a list just to remember to go home and eat lunch and do errands. How long does it take for dopamine to come back? I get so angry for being what I call "stupid mode." It drives me crazy!!! Has anyone ever widrawn from hydrocodone and decreased antidepressents at the same time? I take omega fish oil 3 times a day, get at least 1 hour of excerise a day (power walking, running 2 miles, etc.) and drink lots of water. I even only eat food that is good for my diet.
Avatar n tn You listed your medicines & left of Cymbalta. Does that mean you no longer take it? I have Fibromyalgia & other arthritic ailments. A new doctor put me on Cymbalta (20 mg twice daily) & had me drop the amount of Celebrex I take daily & also worked me off Elavil at bedtime (40 mg). I've been on Cymbalta about 4 months & after being off Elavil about 6 weeks, I could no longer stand the nervousness at night. I started taking 1 Elavil (10 mg.

Avatar f tn I know I need to wean the medication slowly but don't know whether I should take 500 mg daily and skip a day and then take it again the next or what is best to do or how long to do it. Could anyone give me any suggestions? I would greatly appreciate any feedback.
Avatar f tn Does anyone have a problem with temper when taking Klonopin or Lamictal, or either of these drugs helping with a temper. I've been on Klonopin for several years so doubt that's the problem. I've only been on Lamictal two weeks and on lithium for a few months. I've had a problem with my temper for about a month.
Avatar f tn 05 Ativan and I also took half a 0.5 Clonazepam. Should I take both for a while? For how long? Or jus increase the Clonazepam and stop the Ativan. I get such pains in my back and shoulders and neck. I think it's from no Ativan. What should I do?
544292 tn?1268886268 not dead. And who don't have freaky withdrawal symptoms anymore. I wanna know how long they were on it and how they got better. I don't have my energy back. The room in which I mainly hung out during detox looks like a bomb went off in there. No energy to clean. All energy has to be conserved to do basic get to work, get home, get groceries and supplies kinda stuff. I think all of these ideas about going to a detox facility are ... not designed for me. Cause I have no insurance.
Avatar n tn I took adderall illegally on and off for a while (buy it from friends). I would use it for studying and various long term attention needed tasks. While I agree it does work, its not what we need. What is ADHD or ADD other than people who can't pay attention? What does it take to pay attention? PRACTICING PAYING ATTENTION! Just like any other thing you want to get better at, it takes practice.
Avatar n tn does long term use of oxycodone for 10 years affect your brain long term? meaning it cannot get back to before you starting taking the oxys???
Avatar n tn As I type this, I guess I'm making progress. Do you recall what side effects you had with Effexor XR, if any, and how long they last? Last week I had episodes of sweating. This week it's nausea. The sweating finally ended, so hopefully the nausea will too. Any supportive information you can provide would be appreciated.
933174 tn?1375796153 I've been popping percs for the last 3-4 months. It started after I had an abortion, couldn't deal with the guilt, felt depressed, have a kid, this was a couple hear, a couple there, then became daily. I have tried weaning a few times and have been successful only for maximum 2-3 days, but lately its getting even harder to wean. I'm started to really feel it when I go about 12 hours. I start panicking, every little thing becomes ginormous. I have to pop one in the morning soon after I wake up.
Avatar n tn but I need to know how long does this last...will I ever get my life back????I am so frustrated not knowing what to expect on a day to day anxiety is way out of control one day....I'm emotional the next.....I have done everything possible...I've walked an hour a day, watching sugars, eating healthy.....etc. I can't take it anymore....Dr.s only want to prescribe meds.they don't want you to come off of them....however my psychologist wants me off everything...but ....

I have been binge eating and cant seem to control my sweet tooth as i used to in the past! I just started Wellbutrin 2 days ago!!!
