Avatar m tn Can I just switch from Lexapro to zoloft. Should I expect any effects? I am currently taking 20MG of Lexapro. How much Zoloft should I take?
1663122 tn?1302847427 5/325 if I quit taking it 10 weeks before birth? I have been taking this medication for about 3 years due to severe Osteoarthritis. My OBGYN prescribes it for me but we talked about my baby being addicted if I keep taking my 3 pills per day right up until birth.
Avatar n tn First of all, the Zoloft can take time to work...up to 30 days or more in some cases. So, I don't know if it's going to stave off immediate withdrawals. the Daypro (new drug to me) is just an anti-inflammatory from what I can tell. So, there's really nothing that will keep you from feeling the withdrawals, if they happen. You're taking a low-moderate amount of Tramadol, so the withdrawals could be nothing, moderate...or even possibly severe. We're all different in how we react to medications.
Avatar n tn I was also told this could lead to strokes. At the moment my physician has me on zoloft at bedtime (50mg),Toprol 50mg,1xday The episodes are occuring more rapidly now then when they first began in August 2000., and have gotten to the point where I'm afraid that something else is going on. Is there any procedure I might be able to relate to my physician that she might be able to do to stop this from happening, or to give me some relief?
Avatar f tn There are also parts on my body that hurt when touched (but not warm or red) I have been on Zoloft for a couple of months and I have been test for the Rheumatoid factor and it was negative. I am going to a rheumatologist in January. I am overweight but I eat healthy and am trying to work out. All I can do right now is walk and the more activity I do the more pain I am in!! Any ideas??
Avatar n tn I am so sorry. I was reading your reply to my post when I noted that I had put down I was currently on Paxil BUT I meant to put Zoloft. Please reconsider my questions that would apply to my correction. If your reply does not change, would you tell me why you would recommend the Serzone? Less side effects or what? (History recap:Was on Paxil but had hallucinations. Once stopped this med. the hallucinations stopped. Then to Serzone for less than a month and taken off of it due to bad arth.
Avatar n tn I do have Osteoarthritis but not like this was. Now on Zoloft for apprx. one month. First week had lots of energy then started being tired and sleeping alot now seem to be slowly needing less sleep.
Avatar f tn The Fatigue is cased by and is a main symptom of Hypothyroid, because your metabolism is slowed. Are you under medication for thyroid? Has your md taken any bloodwork lately and if he did, could you post the results of Free T3 Free T4 and TSH including the reference ranges provided, members then can see where you are in regards to your thyroid and give suggestions, causes and advice. If you are being medicated post what meds you are on also.
Avatar m tn I am now taking Norco 4 times a day, Zoloft 100mg 2 x a day, Requip for RLS, and my legs are still almost worthless at this point. I also have osteoarthritis in every joint, and that just adds to the misery. Right now I'm at a stand still. I told my Rheumy that I would take no more "let's see if this works" medication. I'm done with that.
Avatar n tn My fibromyalgia is focused in my back, ALL of my back; upper, lower, middle, and both sides. F.Y.I. I also have osteoarthritis and osteopenia(?) and (in case it's relevant) I had whiplash (upper back/neck) in Dec. 1987. Now, my questions are: Do Fibromyalgia patients typically experience 'flare ups'? I've been on a combination of Gabapentin and EffexorXR for treatment and often the pain is manageable and under control.
606078 tn?1247268153 I only have osteoarthritis and that is painful enough ....I can only imagine what you are going through.....I pray that you have better days ahead Angel.....
Avatar n tn I have MS, Fibromylagia and Osteoarthritis. My MS was diag in 1986, the arthritis/Fibro. a few years before or after? this. The rheum. I went to put me on Flexaril, anti-flam. and pain medication, I think darvocet. After some years they stopped helping my Fibro pain and I stopped sleeping well. Have been sleeping on the floor most of the time now as this is only place I seem to be able to get any sleep. Currently taking Ultram, anti-flam., Blood pres. med.
329994 tn?1301666848 I've never taken Effexor....but I've taken Elavil, Paxil, Zoloft, Cymbalta, and Wellbutrin so I know a little something about the benefits and side effects of AD's. Most AD's will lower your sex drive to almost zero (except wellbutrin and I wonder about it sometimes) and cause weight gain. When I took cymbalta I had extreme fatigue (slept the whole time I was on it) as well as constipation and dry mouth.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms of bilateral pins and needles which occur bilaterally sound more like degenerative disck disease mixed with the osteoarthritis in the cervical spine that you obviously have. At two level the osteophytes actually touch the spinal cord. This is worrisome. They might actually impinge it a bit during motion and will likely continue to encroach on the cord.

6452367 tn?1430948192 Thank you so much. My Dr put me on them due to Osteoarthritis. I can barely get out of bed cause I am in awful pain. I have started to reduce my intake and am going thru withdrawals but not as bad as I thought it would be. Continue to pray for me as I am determined to kick this!!
1280306 tn?1271271386 After long periods of inflammation, the joints begin to break down, thus causing a loss of cushion known as cartiledge disc between these vertebrae. The popping your hearing is just that. Osteoarthritis induced hypermobility. This can also happen when one with active osteoarthritis seeks chiropractic adjustments over several periods of time. The treatment is spinal fusion with removal of arthritic tissue/scarring.

1275919 tn?1279839604 Turns out the docs were asking my mom if I had threatened suicide and my mom had to tell them yes. I was tried on zoloft shortly before and it did make me crazy, talking suicidal and stuff so I don't blame her, especially since my dad has tried to committ suicide. When I finally got to talk to the psychiatrist, I explained what happened, and that was confirmed by the blood drug tests they did while I was out. So he let me go pretty quickly.
Avatar n tn If you look at websites for other medical areas, like osteoarthritis, rheumatology, etc. you will find that HCV has become a primary diagnostic criteria for those that present with undiagnosed joint and arthritic pain. HCV seems to be a major factor in many of these cases, and additionally, those who DO have HCV seem to exhibit an unusually high incidence of arthritic syndromes, including arthralgia, fibromyalgia, RA, Lupus, CFS, etc.
Avatar n tn I not only feel pain, aching,burning feeling but alot of stiffness especially by the end of the day. Any suggestions would be most appreciated? I have been on Paxil, Serzone now Zoloft. I was changed due to the affects of the Paxil mixed with my Ultram caused hallucinations (thanks to you all, this was figured out). Serzone made me ache all over. I have had very few side affects from the Zoloft so Psyc. seems pleased.

When my Neuro lst started me on Paxil I had noticed a lessening of the pain on my right side and even could sleep in bed instead of the floor.

Avatar n tn be best for treatment of FM? I am 47 yrs old with MS, FM and Osteoarthritis. Used to be on Flexeril which gave me sleep but got to where this did not work. My new Neuro started me on Paxil then referred me to Psyc for depression and medication management. The Paxil seemed to be helping my pain but I started seeing people, hallucinating. Your clinic suggested it could be caused by med.s since I was also on Ultram and Paxil. Took that message to my Psyc.
Avatar f tn SAM-E has also been successfully used for those with osteoarthritis, depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, bursitis, and many more conditions. Hope I kept that simple enough...I tried awful darn hard...LOL The most important thing to remember is NOT to take either of them (or 5HTP or St. John's Wort) if you are currently taking an antidpressant unless you check out interactions first.
3297715 tn?1349023948 I've always been very susceptible to it and have had to go WAY up on my dosage of antidepressant to be able to manage at all. Which one are you on and what was your starting dose? I was on 50mg of Zoloft before treating but ended up at 200mg by the time I was halfway through tx. Do be sure to tell your doctor how depressed you are getting, and let that dose go as high as it needs to go.
