Prozac and tremors

Common Questions and Answers about Prozac and tremors


Avatar n tn Rest Tremors and Postural Tremors. Rest tremors are the tremors seen in Parkinson's Disease; this type of tremor disappears with sleep and occurs when the patient is awake but inactive. Postural tremors include physiological tremors/essential tremors which are tremors that are absent at rest but occur during intentional activities (holding arms outstretched in front of the body, writing).
Avatar f tn Physical therapy and occupational helped to strngthen my muscle and increased my endurance a bit but I am still weak. Now I am on Prozac and Klonopin and still have these attacks. I am seeing a nurse therapist and she doe not know what is causing my tremors. So when I get frustrated I just sit on them or keep something like a rosary or stress beads in my hands and i just learned to live with it even though it is frustrating. I wish you all good luck and believe me after reaching my 60th B day.
Avatar f tn my son is 8 yrs old and on adderall prozac strattera trazodone and has a overactive thyroid problem and hand tremors should he be on theses meds .
Avatar f tn My daughter did very well on Prozac. What causes the shaking and do you thing the Prozac will make a difference. I have not started it yet. I am also on 180 mg of Cartia and a potassium supplement.
Avatar m tn Having hand tremors (both hands) Myoclonus jerks, severe itching on left forearm for no reason one two minute bout with double vision with eye pain and twitching. Take 40 mg of Prozac a day for depression and anxiety. Was a drinker for 20 years but quit 4 years ago. Just got back from neurologist and she said she thinks its psycogenic tremors or my past alcohol use and maybe a pinched nerve in back causing the myoclonus jerks.

Avatar m tn I have been taking 40 mg PO QD on and off for 10 years for depression. I recently restarted my Rx again after being off for 3 years. Is it possible to develop adverse reactions like tremors to this Rx even if I never had any side effects during previous treatments? I have been on my current Rx for 2 1/2 months now and my tremor seems to be getting worse. Im scheduled to see a nuerologist in a few weeks and don't know if I should stop the Prozac first and see if it is the cause of the tremor.
Avatar n tn I also take Clonazepam - 0.5mg for anxiety and Prozac - 20mg to help with my nervousness and anxiety. These medications do help, but I have noticed over the past year that my shaky head syndrome and my shaky legs while driving has gotten worse. It is getting to the point that I am barely able to drive, and I have noticed that my head is shaking more than it used to. Is there anything else I can do or any other medication I could take to help me so I can continue to drive?
Avatar f tn While I do not have personal experience with this drug I can tell you this drug is a combination drug. It contains Zyprexa (olazepine) and Prozac (fluoxetine). The Olazepine has possible adverse reactions like insomnia, dizziness, tremors, dry mouth, constipation. Avoid use of alcohol, and smoking. And Fluoxetine adverse effects can be nervousness, anxiety, insomnia, headache, nausea, diarrhea, dry mouth. There is also a drug to drug interaction with this med with Lithium.
Avatar f tn t sleep well because wake up and body feel stiff, and get up and strech, go back to bed. I stay tired, my mind is feeling like ADD. I feel like I'm only get worse, .. my whole body shakes, head to legs, I have a times light numbness in left side of face, (once or twice a week for hour or so. It is very embrassing when I go out to work I collect DNA samples, and hand shake, and legs people are always asking are you ok. Most of the time people can't see it though.
Avatar f tn Yes from what I can read the potential of an interaction was noted and that doctors prescribing the two medications together should monitor these concerns. You could discuss the specifics with your psychiatrist who of course would have a full understanding of this concern. However it should be noted that many medications can interact with lithium by raising or lowering the blood level of lithium. When the blood level of lithium is higher the potential for hand tremors increases.
Avatar n tn Posted By Leanne Garvey on November 05, 1997 at 12:44:35: Dear Doctor, I had a mild head injury three years ago, my symptoms include headache, dizziness, slurred speech, blurred vision, memory loss and tremors intermittently. I've been treated with Elavil, Pamelor, Desipramine, Zoloft and now Prozac, most work for a period of time then stop. My MRI was normal, EEG showed slowing in the Temporal and Frontal lobes.
Avatar n tn Hello, I went on prozac and then my life totally changed and I felt great. So I went off of it. but then in the past few months I got depressed again. I'm thinking I should go back on it.
337492 tn?1212458836 About six years ago, when I was still un-polar, I used Wellbutrin by itself and did quite well. I quit taking it after a year and a half and switched to prozac, which allowed my mania to surface (GRR). Anyhow, my question is regarding the generic form of wellbutrin, which I have been on for a week. I am on 75 mg twice a day. I notice I am very shakey with slight tremors at times and my heart rate is averaging around 100 BPM. I see my doc on Tuesday.
Avatar f tn t take it any more, i just take my Prozac and that alone is not helping. Is this a common side affect? will it go away? why did it start after i had been taking the medicine for over a month with no problem?
Avatar f tn I have essential tremors and I have been taking Klonopin for a very long time along with Baclofen (for the soreness in my neck muscles). I take 2mg 2x a day of Klonopin and 20mg 2x a day of Baclofen. I also take Prozac 40mg every night. My doctor has been talking about putting me on beta-blockers for my tremors, but he won't do so until I can get my asthma under control (he prescribed Dulera inhaler 2x a day & I also have an Albuterol inhaler).
Avatar n tn I'm 19 and I'm perscribed on 3 20 mgs of instant release adderall and 40 mg of prozac a day and I almost always have white ridges along the side of my tongue and irritated taste buds in the front. the back of my throat and tongue are rough and my tonsils and top of my throat get very red and tender. Sometimes my tongue swells so that I can't speak normally. I have seen a few different drs and they all just give me antibiotics cause they don't know what it is.
Avatar f tn I have also tried Paxil, Celexa and Zoloft and they all made me feel lethargic, sleepy and in the mood for nothing. Yes, bupropion makes it hard for me to sleep and makes me slightly edgy, but I get the energy and the feelings of motivation. it's really different for everybody. I don't get the tremors etc, though.

Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with BP II with more noticeable depression as well. I'm actually on a combo of Wellbutrin/Abilfy and it's the PERFECT combo for me. I was on lamictal and it made me crazy and had awful side effects. I've never taken Prozac or Lithium, as I've found a combo that works for me. I take 250mg Wellbutrin twice a day and 15mg of Abilify. I also take an anti-anxiety med and sleeping pills as needed.
974371 tn?1424653129 I did take low dose Prozac years ago but when I was given Reglan, I reacted with agitation and tremors and my doc took me off both.
1488651 tn?1296698023 I am 32 with two children. Last couple of years I have had severe neck pain on right side. I also get loss of coordination, dizziness, major headaches, hand tremors, muscle spasms, muscle twitching( leg jerks), blurred vision, and stabbing pain behind right ear, and leg and arm weakness, always fatigued. I have been dx with Hashimotos which levels are being managed with levytyroxine. I also take Prozac for anxiety, and primidone for tremors which don't seem to work.

Avatar n tn Can wellburtin and prozac be taken together. MY doctor feels because I am still depress I should take Prozac in the morning and wellburtin in the afternoon. Is this quite normal? I am also taking (mobic , hydroxychkoroquine,fFOLBIC,evista,methotrexate(3 tablets a week) FOR MY ARITHRITIS(RHU.) AND OSEOP.) I am also taking alprazolam for anxiety 3 x a day. Now my psch. feels I need to add prozac.
Avatar m tn i am feeling anxious and depressed for some time.I am feeling tired most of the time.I am thinking of switching from Prozac to Effexor XR.Does Effexor XR makes you feel more energetic?
Avatar n tn Prozac should be stopped immediately if you get hives as soon as you start taking it (in the first couple of weeks). It can be a sign of a rare but serious allergic reaction called Steven's Johnson Syndrome. Allergy to prozac is very unlikely after taking it for years. I would suspect she is having an allergic reaction to something else. She should contact her Dr.
Avatar f tn When I was taking Prozac I didnt gain weight.Paxcel made me gain some though.
