So i am curious to know what you found out and why to you need to lower the does before surgeries?
Avatar n tn Then the following day is marked by apathy and irritability. Symptoms improve after one day of no Adderall (and a break helps prevent tolerance). Taking Adderall also increases my heart rate, and I feel physically more nervous, despite anxious thoughts not being present. I would like to remain on Adderall, as the treatment for my ADHD has given me a substantial boost in confidence and learning, which has been invaluable and overshadows its negatives.
Avatar m tn I am a recovering addict and was on adderall for years with lexpro and ofcourse abused the adderall. I feel like lexapro has changed my outlook on life better than when i was on wellbutren and lithium so I am very greatful for that. I just need to get my ADHD somewhat tamed as it is causing problems at my work place. I feel like a basket case writing all my problems just really need to get answers... Thank you for your time..
Avatar m tn I am suffering so bad with concentration and focus its affecting my work BAD...

Avatar m tn I am on Adderall XR, Wellbutrin XL 300mg, Neurontin 600-1200mg, Vicodin 5-10mg, Lexapro 10mg, and Prozac 10mg.I initially started on the prozac a month or so after being on the Lexapro 10mg, because I had increased the dosage by 10mg which was counteracting my Adderall which I take for ADD. With that being said, my question is whether anyone has increased Lexapro dosage while they are getting off of Prozac or permanently seeing as the Prozac does help.
Avatar n tn Can lexapro help with getting off of adderall?
Avatar m tn I have been taking 10 mg of Lexapro for three weeks now and I am still experiencing bad side effects, muscle tension,burning skin and the diareha finally stopped today. has anyone ever experience mouth ulcers from Lexapro, because I got them in the inside part of the corner of my lips.
Avatar n tn Will mixing 50 mg of Adderall XR and 10 mg of Lexapro cause high bloodpressure?
Avatar m tn Recently I was officially diagnosed with ADHD (possibly caused by a post concussive personality disorder -- I had head injuries as a kid) and OCD/GAD. My neuro decided to put me on Adderall and Zoloft. The Adderall is working pretty well (I guess - it might need to be a bit stronger), but the Zoloft... not so much. I got a lot of side effects, most notably dyspepsia (indigestion/reflux/heartburn), jitteryness (is that a real word?) and sexual side effects. The doc then switched me to Lexapro.
896568 tn?1241642874 I am 23 years old and i have been taking adderall 30 mg xr once a day for years. First off, Adderall is the absolute worst drug you can take if you have anxiety. I myself have severe anxiety and OCD, and Adderall definitely makes my symptoms worse. I am surprised your doctors haven't tried to take you off of some of your medications.
Avatar f tn I was taking a benzodiazepine an SSRI and adderall and i noticed the SSRI changed my mood as well and made me on edge. I am currently taking Valium for my anxiety and depression and adderall for my ADD. Its been about 2 years now since i stopped taking lexapro and i have been much better since. I would talk to your doctor about other forms of treatment and explain what your actual side effects are.
Avatar n tn At the time I was hopeful that the day time sleepiness and nightmares may be due to obvious depressive cycles thoughout the years. Lexapro has continued to help a lot with my mood and initially the daytime sleepiness and nightmares (about 3 weeks - maybe psycological?). Shortly afterward I was finding depression returning because of severe anxiety and work pressures. My psychiatrist put me on 0.25mg of respirdol (at night) to alleviate negative thought patterns.
351317 tn?1204751871 I have ADD and moderate/major depression and was wondering if there are others out there with these problems and if so what medications are you taking that help. Ritalin makes me nuts but adderall worked for me better with a little less side effects. Still stimulants makes my already high anxiety worse but still I do think I need them. Is there some kind of balance with other meds that would allow me to take stimulants without feeling so anxious?
Avatar n tn Do you know if there is an issue with taking Lexapro and Adderall? I started taking Adderall because I was unable to concentrate at my work so I dont want to stop taking it.
Avatar f tn I have tried klonopin, ativan, ambien cr, tonight for instance i took 1 ambien 4 1/2 mg of ativan and 1 1/2 mg of klonopin and i am wide awake. Not quit sure the difference between adderall and benzo's. I used to be on ridilin and now am on dexedrin which are both uppers but have sleep side affects that are supposed to make you sleepy . I am at my whits end. sorry not really much of an advice more than a comment and trying to learn what other people are trying.
Avatar m tn Then, about 2 ½ years ago I had a near-psychotic meltdown, mostly about the devil and evil spirits, and was diagnosed with OCD and prescribed Anafranil and Zyprexa, which helped with the irrational thinking and obsessive thoughts a little. Between now and then, I have been diagnosed with OCD, Social anxiety disorder, GAD, major depressive disorder, ADHD, and most recently, aspergers/high functioning autism.
Avatar n tn I took adderall for about 1-2 years and the drug lexapro. I have mitrol valve prolapse as well. She needs to stop taking the adderall immediately. The drug puts a lot of pressure on your heart. I can't stress to you how strongly I feel that she stops taking it now. I feel that my heart problems are a direct result of adderall.
Avatar m tn Because of this my psychiatrist put me on new meds. I am now on Lexapro, Latuda, Lorazepam, and Adderall XR. I am able to function, but not live. I work from my couch, very rarely leave the home, and feel like a complete zombie. I have urges to take more Adderall throughout the day as I feel that is the only medicine that helps me actually "live". My new doctor changed my antidepressant from Lexapro to Pristiq about a month ago to solve this problem.
Avatar n tn i am curentaly on 150mg Zoloft, 15mg Zyprexa, 15mg Adderall, and was on Wellbutrin 300mg untill and overdose that lead to a seizure. i am a heavy smoker and let me say that it helps with my depression better than Zoloft. i am diagnosed with ADHD, paranoia Skitzophrenia, bi-polar mania, depression, social phobia, and borderline personality disorder. My interactions with the prescription meds and pot is great.
Avatar f tn I AM TRYING TO GET OFF OF LEXAPRO. I HAVE BEEN ON IT FOR YEARS. I TAKE AMBIEN, LEXAPRO AND ADDERALL, I'M TIRED OF BECOMING DEPENDANT ON THESE MEDICATIONS. I WOULD LIKE TO TRY A MORE NATURAL APPROACH TO MEDS. I ALSO HAD THE FLU 1 1/2 WEEKS AGO, SINCE THEN I HAVENT TAKEN ANY MEDS AND FELLING PRETTY GOOD. I DO GET THE WEIRD FEELINGS AND THE SHOCK LIKE WAVES GOING THROUGH MY BODY. I KNOW THIS HAS TO BE SOME TYPE OF REACTION TO GETTING OFF.

Dog Hi! My son takes the generic of both Adderall XR and Lexapro - is it ok for us to use lavender essential oils in his room to promote relaxed and peaceful sleep? He has trouble staying asleep, and frequently has nightmares, and we were told Lavender could help. Thanks!
Avatar n tn At the advice of friends I called my Gyno who said it sounded as though I needed something for anxiety and prescribed Lexapro, 10mg. Took one that evening, and the next morning was seriously wanting to harm myself. Back to the emergency room, admitted to "Behavioral Medicine" wing. Seen very briefly by a psychiatrist, who said "You've had a panic attack, take Lexapro" After discharge, went to see his associate who takes my ins.
