Avatar f tn The extent of risk involved in taking Paxil with alcohol varies with persons, because, some are alcoholics and some are sportive drinkers. Some people drink for suppressing their anxiety and some for numbing the pain. However, it is sure that alcohol can cause quick impairment of brain when taken with Paxil. The hangover caused by consuming these two simultaneously will be worse. Also, this practice causes a craving for alcohol. It also causes anger and anxiety.
897400 tn?1303332748 Like the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and in contrast with most tricyclic antidepressant agents, tianeptine does not appear to be associated with adverse cognitive, psychomotor, sleep, cardiovascular or bodyweight effects and has a low propensity for abuse. Tianeptine has a comparatively favourable pharmacokinetic profile. It is not subject to first-pass hepatic metabolism, has high bioavailability and limited distribution, and is rapidly eliminated.
Avatar n tn This is solely for educational purposes and should in no way be a substitute for a formal evaluation by a certified physician. My dearest regards for what you are having to deal with as a concerned mother -- I know that the changes you have seen in your son are extremely frightening. As an neurologist, I see memory loss and cognitive decline often -- but typically in elderly patients or patients who have had brain injury or trauma.
Avatar m tn Before initiating treatment, 20 patients were randomized to receive 14 weeks of paroxetine (2 weeks before initiating interferon and 12 weeks into the treatment regimen). Among patients not receiving paroxetine, 45% developed major depression compared with 11% of those receiving the paroxetine treatment, suggesting that antidepressant therapy reduced the risk of depression development on treatment.
Avatar f tn I get these unexplained chills all the time, where im freezing cold with goose bumps all over my body. They hurt and I can barely walk they are so bad sometimes. I check my temp when I get these episodes and its perfectly normal. I do not have a infection or am not sick. Im not even in a cold environment. Everyone around me is not cold. Its the weirdest thing, and I cant find a answer for it. Its like my body is messed up and sending these chills for no reason. Please help.
Avatar f tn I've heard several success stories of people going cold-turkey off alcohol which sort of surprised me. People with 10 years or more of sobriety. That's pretty amazing. But these depression meds have a much different effect. Finding a natural treatment is a possible option as mentioned by the therapist from Canada. I have to admit it's difficult to get into a routine, but exercise is great therapy. Martial arts also. it gets you focused.
Avatar n tn Factors affecting serum albumin concentrations, such as malnutrition, renal failure, or burn patients, or concurrently administering medications with a high affinity for albumin, can have an extreme effect on the free phenytoin concentration, thus leading to levels which would be determined as high. There are also many drugs which increase or decrease phenytoin levels or which phenytoin may affect. The most commonly occurring drug interactions are listed below (this information is from www.
Avatar f tn I was given Paroxetine for depression/anxiety over a year ago. I didn't take it however. Tried talk therapy for 6 weeks instead. I feel now, however, that I need to go on meds. I was just wondering if someone can tell me what to expect after taking paroxetine. Does it really work? How long does it take it to work? And are there any noticeable changes at all the first few weeks. Before, I did take one pill when I was given the meds.
Avatar f tn I am a 53 year old female, otherwise healthy other than just been diagnosed with reflux disease. I have had panic disorder/depression since my teens, but an episode in my 30s caused a flareup that was life altering. After being on Pamelor for a year, i had to get on Paxil, cos my panic attacks were so frequent, i was i've been on generic (Paroxetine) Paxil and Xanax for about 20 years. The Paxil stopped my panic attacks, but YES, I gained about 50 lbs over this time....
Avatar f tn He started me on faverin(fluvoxamine), Lamnet (lamotrigine), Seroxat(paroxetine) Seroxat CR(paroxetine hydrochloride) for avout two to three months but there was no improvement.This time I again went to him he told me that you should not had stopped your medicines.Psychiatry medicines need time and changing if they are prociding no releif.Now he has prescribed Zuloxet(duloxetine hydrochloride), Zeegab(pregabalin) & Zedan(roxithromycin).
Avatar n tn Re Panic attacks Forgive me if I recommend Paroxetine for the treatment of anxiety/panic attacks - but I am doing as - it has worked WONDERS for me. I do have a genuine problem with my heart BUT after reluctantly taking paroxetine (after hesitating about taking an antidepressant for years for fears it would upset my heart - it didn't) I have never looked back.
Avatar n tn I'm being treated for depression, previously tried zoloft, went on and off it (felt better,hey, i don't need this stuff, crash). This time around my Dr. suggested Paxil. I started with 10mg for a few days, it's my 2nd day on 20mg. I feel slightly barfy in the a.m., quite sleepy by lunch. I've been taking it at breakfast. 1) When can i expect the nausea and fatigue to abate? 2) Should i time the dosage differently? Thanks, i'll be seeing my Dr.
Avatar m tn Baja California, Mexico. Hi, I hope somebody can help me. The reason why i'm here is because since a long time ago more than one year The reason why I am here is because for over a year and half I have suffered from infections and pain in the body multiple chronic conditions. The pain that I feel is so hard it can be sometimes in my back (lungs) like a muscle spasms. And sometimes I feel it in my Thoracic diaphragm like a electric shock along my body.
Avatar m tn Began dosuliphin 25 daily and will combine with the prozac (60mg) and gradually increase and decrease as directed and agreed. Bit worried about the side effects -weight gain, excessive yawning as well as weaning myself off the prozac as had bad experience with ssri in the past, but only really 3rd Ad used since 1992, as previously built up dosage on seroxat and prozac.
1033596 tn?1252523193 Right now I am exercising vigorously once a day, and I have cut back on my alcohol consumption by a lot. Still--I battle with snacking. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn I've been taking Paroxetine 50mg for the past few years to treat it and it has always worked amazingly. I suffered a severe relapse a few months back due to coming off my medication too quickly (my psychiatrist had given me a plan, but I stupidly didn't pay much attention to how gradually I was meant to reduce it), but as soon as I went back on it everything went back to normal.
Avatar n tn A minimum of 2 weeks should elapse after taking a MAOI before starting paroxetine. Not to be taken with alcohol. Products or foods containing tryptophan are not recommended in large amounts and may cause severe headache, nausea, sweating, and dizziness. Patients who currently take warfarin (Coumadin), cimetidine (Tagamet) or digoxin (Lanoxin) may need to have the dosages of these drugs adjusted by their physician after Paxil is added to the regimen.
341190 tn?1295470725 Paroxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant. It is often prescribed to deal with anxiety and depression. In my opinion, these medications are very good and proven to be effective at what they are designed to do. Just follow your doctor's orders...if you have any more questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask.
1171357 tn?1285855420 The verbal therapy has really shed a lot of light on my life and why things are the way they are and how to cope with my problems. The problem that I am having is with my medication. I have tried flouxetine, sertraline, abilify, paroxetine now bupropion. The only thing that has worked was a combination of sertraline and bupropion, but I was told that the way I was feeling, I was in a hypo-manic state and that was not good for me. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I can do?
959034 tn?1253675076 Concurrent use of cetirizine or levocetirizine with alcohol or other central nervous system (CNS) depressants may result in additive impairment of mental alertness and performance. Several studies have shown no effect of racemic cetirizine on cognitive function, motor performance, or sleep latency as indicated by objective measurements. However, there have been reports of somnolence, fatigue, and asthenia in some patients treated with cetirizine or levocetirizine in clinical trials.

Avatar m tn MK-001 also demonstrated both preventive and therapeutic effects against HCV infection of cells. When combined with interferon alpha, MK-001 inhibited HCV replication more than interferon alone. The compounds silybin A, silybin B, isosilybin A, and isosilybin B produced the strongest anti-HCV activity. These antiviral effects were found to be independent of MK-001-induced cytotoxicity.
Avatar f tn I have been dealing with an extreme fear of death, and anxiety about everything. It started a little over a year ago. I was 22 when I found my mother dead. She had a heart attack, so it was very sudden. I was extremely close with her. From the age of 12 when my dad had left, it was just us. we did everything together and she was really all I had. Up until I got pregnant. Once my daughter was born, I had her, and her father. But it was only 1 month after I had moved out when she passed.

1211508 tn?1343083205 Just try to go into this with as open a mind as you can. Don't place too much emphasis or importance on anyone else's experience, allow yourself to have your OWN experience. Lastly, I really urge you to discuss the Klonopin with your doc. I've already mentioned this to you, but never got a reply from you whether or not you talked with your doc about it. Klonopin is MUCH more effective when taken regularly, usually twice daily.
Avatar n tn Although for the first few months, the libido change (MUCH lower) and anorgasmia had been hard to deal with in the begining, but seems to be better. The only thing is that I've noticed over the last several months an effect that is rather disturbing and I don't know if it's due to lexapro? Kind of an inability to think straight sometimes, or loss of short term memory. Just an overall feeling of almost a blank mind.
Avatar n tn I had an ablation for AVRT on 9/15 and continued to have symptoms of palpitations and runs of fast beats.2 wks ago I had an EKG that was "very different" from all my (numerous over decades)EKGS -- something about the P waves and being in atrial tachycardia.My cardiologist wanted me to go in the next week for another EP study/ablation although he said i had nothing life threatening(heart rate about 110 at that time at rest).
Avatar n tn Can you go cold turkey to get off paxil and what can I do to help with the withdrawl? I am out of medication and cann't afford a refill at this time.
