Prozac in dogs side effects

Common Questions and Answers about Prozac in dogs side effects


Avatar n tn I just switched from Lexapro because it gave me the dizzies. Was on Prozac over 10 years ago and don't remember this as a side effect. I hate to keep switching meds because I want to get thru the bad of one to get to the good. Does that make sense? Should I stick it out? I have a call into my Dr. office but if this is quite normal, I would like to stay on it and work thru it. Is there anything I can take to combat the dizziness?
Avatar n tn however, fluoxetine has worked the best and I've stayed with it the longest. My question is regarding the side effects. Occasionally I will notice an internal restless feeling -- usually lasts a few days. It's almost like I feel kind of antsy. My sleep is not disturbed -- I sleep normal as usual. I've also noticed, and have in the past, that I have some twitches. Various muscles in my body will twitch from time to time.
Avatar n tn I took my treatment in 1997, and I am still suffering side effects. The treatment was not successful then. Now in addition to the side effects, now I have the symptoms of a much deteriorated liver, so of course life was better before the first treatment, but it is not only the side effects it is the condition of your liver that must be getting worse after so many years (unless you successfully cleared the virus then).
Avatar m tn I had no medication until my son was 8 months old about 15 months after stopping effexor I was a bit depressed so was give prozac which I have been on for the pass year not without problems though Anyway you can get over the side effects of taking effexor in about a week but everyone is different Wishing you luck:)
1671244 tn?1304794585 She also explained to me that I am not only experiencing withdraw from the clonazepam, but also the side effects of the new drug that was started 7 days ago! I will keep everyone informed. I am so glad to have found this group with others who know what I am going through. Thank you!!
690549 tn?1288886321 Because I was doing Ok when the first disease modifying medicines came out, and because the majority of damage would likely already have been done, as well as the unpleasant side effects that were known, together with my neuro I decided to not be placed on one. Over the years I saw that my benign status was changing, but my neuro did not. She didn't see my increasing leg weakness and difficulty walking because I was OK when I saw her.
Avatar n tn I was put on several anti depressants for a period of one year with severe side effects. I am now hyper sensitive to medications.
Avatar m tn They are very random and can occur when she's sitting, walking, running or laying in bed. They also can occur once in a day or week, or several times in the same day. She has had ultrasounds, xrays, mri's, vein tests, nerve tests, etc., and no doctor yet has diagnosed her problem. It scares the heck out of me sometimes because it comes on so quick that there is a violent jerk reaction followed by cries of pain and agony.
685623 tn?1283485207 One regular strength tablet of acetaminophen may cause damage to a cat’s red blood cells, limiting their ability to carry oxygen. In dogs, acetaminophen leads to liver failure and, in large doses, red blood cell damage. 3) Antidepressants (e.g. Effexor, Cymbalta, Prozac, Lexapro) While these antidepressant drugs are occasionally used in pets, overdoses can lead to serious neurological problems such as sedation, incoordination, tremors and seizures.
1201929 tn?1293711672 On the other hand, synthetic progesterone (such as Provera) can cause considerable side effects, possibly including birth defects, partial loss of vision, breast cancer in test dogs, an increased risk of strokes, fluid retention, migraine headaches, asthma, cardiac irregularities and depression. Recommended Brand: After testing several brands and reading up on several others, I found an excellent brand which strictly follows Dr. Lee's recommendations, and comes in a measured-dose pump bottle.
Avatar m tn Vet has prescribed cat prozac but we can't get it in him. Put it in his food and now he won't eat it. Vet recommending a behavioralist.
Avatar f tn i hav ditched RX ADs///stay with my aminos now....5thp each night 100 mg for depression and the beginning many need it 2-3 x a day...tyrosine 2-3000 mg a day for energy and motivation.,.phenylalanine too///SAMe on occasion, st johns wort on occasion and theanine. GABA it is amazing how these aminos "fix" our brains without the side effects of the big dogs..
974371 tn?1424656729 Have tried to stick with the Clonidine for 6 days now and my BP and heart rate have been ok. I am usually on the low side. Tried skipping the Prozac yesterday but can't say that made a difference. Actually, I am noticing no difference. Still waking up during the night with stomach grumbling, stomach ache then nausea. :-( Have yet another appt at Stanford on Friday with another specialist, who I find out afterward that she trained under the doctor that diagnosed this!!!
Avatar n tn For example, one person might say that marijuana is a gateway drug or that pot has bad side effects. Also, there is the question about smoking and driving while being stoned. So lets take a minute to touch down on this subject end then I will show you how we can benefit from the legalization of marijuana. First there is the people who believe that the use of marijuana will lead to the use of harder drugs like cocaine, heroin, acid, mushrooms, peyote and PCP.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
Avatar f tn A zillion meds tried, some for many, many years. The side effects lead to all sorts of additional psychiatric and physiological illness issues, and more meds and more side effects, on and on. Something I learned very recently is making a difference... It's the fear of my problems that does the most damage. Leads to breakdowns, hospitalizations, medications and etc. as described above. Fear is the bugaboo. Exhaustion is a fear enabler.
Avatar f tn and an SSRI- and I can't tell if any of these are possible side effects... After running blood tests and a nerve conductions study- the most she could find is a slight B12 deficiency- she sent me to a therapist and psychiatrist. Telling me that I was too wound up, it was most likely stress. So I DID tell my doctor and she does think I am neurotic.
Avatar n tn I hate prozac, I never recommend asking for it , too many side effects and it doesn't cure the problem, it only mask them. I highly suggest seeing a reputable Natuorpathic physician, those were my main doctors when I lived back home in the states. They take time to listen to you, order tests that conventional medicine does not even know about at times, and then will really work with you, they will NOT tell you it is anxiety unless they have exhausted all other venues.
Avatar f tn Effexor is difficulot to withdraw from without side effects. I stopped cold turkey once, but last time it took me 10 months to withdraw. As you have already stopped, perhaps you can ride out the withdrawals, but they may go on for some time. I too have osteoarthritis, but I do not take anti depressants now, just pain killers. I had really bad depression for many, many years, and now I am getting old, there is quite a lot of other things to contend with.
544292 tn?1268886268 Not my fault that I had to snicker at the last line there because every time I talked to my Doctors (plural) about medications and side effects they told me that Tramadol was NOT the problem. Then there was usually another drug put on top of that Tramadol. And they told me to take more. I always thought it was the other drug, not the Tramadol. Yeah. I was wrong. It makes me very angry that these Doctors know and aren't telling people. I don't believe that they are ignorant.
656309 tn?1224493459 Is everyone on this site only on the real Wellbutrin they gave me the generic kind to take so far i am ok i past all the side effects i am on my 3rd week I do feel better just lately i have an increased in appetite ........... I did lose 6 pounds in 2 weeks!!! So far ................. any suggestions and if i continue to feel hungry how can i ask my doctor for the real kind???? how is that asked?????
Avatar n tn I think of the awful memories I am providing my kids and feel so depressed. They know that I am on a medication that has nasty side effects, but I haven't gone into detail. Should I? Would taking an anti-anxiety drug on this day help? Also I am experiencing brain fog that is scary. I actually lost time at work and this was a horrible feeling. I couldn't figure out how to lower my ironing board (something I do nearly every day). I walk into rooms and cannot figure out what I am doing.
398624 tn?1266273049 is a Antihistamine, doesnt do anything for a person with EXTREME anxiety, thats what they gave me at first when all my stuff happened......actually made me worse because of the side effects of trembling.....and I was already trembling from nothing as it was. Pristiq is a SNRI, just like all the other Anti depressants...same O side effects. I can tell you now, that if you've been taking Xanax, Ativan, abd Klonopin in the past.....and the Docs just cut you off....
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Everyone and Welcome, Come on in and make yourself cozy. You can do this!
1145020 tn?1281423167 and realize the situation at hand, was OK.... IT did work and I never saw any side effects......I now keep it on hand for Thunderstorm anxiety for him and one of my others.......It did NOT knock him out, just calmed him enough that he could live in "Peace" so to speak......I wouldn't hesitate to use it under your circumstances.... Most of all: Thank you for NOT leaving her behind when you had to move!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn I feel it is one of those who came first situation...hcv can cause chronic aches and pains, just like the tx does. Suffering from chronic exhausting pain on a daily basis can not breed too much positivism. SO, is it the hcv and meds or the symptoms caused by them? if the symptoms are relieved, is there a need for Ads? I am on wk60 ( I think) no Ads yet. Have come close to asking but rode the wave and it subsided. Do what you feel is best for you.
Avatar n tn In looking over my questions, I had some about vitamins, herbal extracts, diet pros and cons. I also wanted to know about addt'l side effects (vision changes, psoriasis changes which I have) and recommendations. I did not go on ADs, but the Dr said if and when, he'd prescribe one (didn't say which one). I write all my lab numbers down, tho getting a copy would be great. good luck.
