Prozac tremors

Common Questions and Answers about Prozac 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 After a pacemaker surgery I started having terrible tremors face muscle twitching slurred speech weakness of legs and arms. the diagnosis has been mixed anxiety, stress. poast traumatic stress, bizzare. Paxil made it worse. Ativan made me relax but still had the tremors. 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.

Avatar m tn I am currently having neurological problems. 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 In about 3-12% of studies about Prozac, there were reported tremors as adverse reaction, depending a little bit on cause of Rx. On the other hand, 1-5% of persons included in that study who took placebos reported exactly the same. It could be other reasons too. I was ready to blame trembling on the use of citalopram, but when I cut down on coffee, I learned something else... Someone else than me might have a better answer?
Avatar n tn I have essesential tremors and take medication (Propranolol SA -160mg) for them. 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.
Avatar f tn My nephew has a diagnosis of PTSD, anxiety and depression and has been advised to start taking symbyax. He has had adverse reactions to prozac & lithium in the past. He is living alone in CA, far from his family support in CT. I m concerned about him taking this new med without anyone but himself to monitor his reaction to it. Does anyone have current experiences with taking symbyax?
Avatar f tn I would specially suggest that you evaluate your thyroid disorder (overactive) thoroughly that can be the potential cause of your tremors. In addition, thyroid disorder may result into anxiety that can also be reason of your tremors. I would suggest to see endocrinologist & neurologist here who can evaluate possibilities mentioned to you earlier. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn 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. You could discuss all this with your psychiatrist but it will take some time for the Ciraplex to be out of your system so it should take some time for any potential improvement to occur but keep your psychiatrist updated as to how things are going.
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 I have been on prozac (fluxetene) for 14 years now - I was severely depressed - and when I started taking it I was suicidal. After two weeks on Prozac my life changed dramatically - and I have been on it ever since with variations on the dozage - I now take 20 mg daily. (I did try to get off it once because everything in my life was great and felt there was no reason to be depressed - but after weaning myself off the depression came back with a vengence - so I went 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 m tn Hi all just wished to find out from others past experience of the drug how long one should expect to experience withdrawal effects from prozac. Been off prozac myself for 2 1/2 weeks after changing to mirtazapine and now have buily up to an 45mg dose after 8 1/2 weeks but i'm experiencing a range of strange sensations over this whole period.
Avatar f tn My doctor has decided that Depression is the cause of my anxiety, and has upped my bupropion to 450 mg a day until the tremors and shaking started, then he lowered me back down to 300. Now I have feel angry or like crying all the time. An explotion can come at anytime, but because the depression was better at 450 mg a day he wants to combine atenolol with it to fight the side effects. I don't like the side effects of either one of these drugs.
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 m tn You can expect hands shaking with almost any stimulants. The severity of the shaking will confirm if you should stop the drug. Tremors are usually not a good sign but in the case of the stimulating Wellbutrin I would suggest the symptoms will get better over some time or get worse in case you need a dose adjustment which would be a lower dose that is.. If the tremors are severe then you should stop taking the drug immediately.
Avatar n tn I've been taking Fluoxetine (generic Prozac) for a few years now and about 6 months ago I upped my dosage. My sex drive on the lower dose was already low, but now it's almost non-existent. At first it wasn't a problem because I haven't been seeing anyone, but now that I am I would really like to try and fix this problem. Since I'm female feel like this is going to be a more difficult process. Would anyone know of any supplements that can help this side effect??
Avatar n tn I suffer from a ,minor case of tremors, I also suffer from depression. I am on 150mg Lamictal, 20mg Prozac, 150mg Trazodone, and 800mg Seroquel. Over the past year I have noticed an increase of involuntary muscle jerks, I was in an accident 2 years ago and it seems that my lower back is constantly doing theses little jerks. It does not hurt, but sometimes the jerks cause me to almost drop things that I am holding. It is so very hard to explain. I was very sick when I was 4 years old.
Avatar f tn I am an 18 year old girl. I was on prozac for maybe a week, only 20 mgs but i was taking it every day and it was not prescribed to me, it was my moms old prescription so i guess that was a very stupid decision. I smoked a tiny bit of pot on it, literally one hit, and about an hr later I started having heart palps and tremors- major anxiety. It was soo bad i couldnt even breathe. I was sweating and shaking uncontrollably. Ever since that I have just not been quite right.
