Psychotic reaction drugs

Common Questions and Answers about Psychotic reaction drugs


Avatar n tn I suppose anyone can have a strange reaction to something but I've never heard of marijuana producing a psychotic reaction. People will have their underlying mood exaggerated by it, so if your son is anxious marijuana might make him more so. Much more so. And that can set off conditioned thinking, so such people should avoid it. But it sounds like something else to me or what you're describing isn't accurate, just an acute thing going on between the two of you. I have no idea obviously.
Avatar f tn I want to be honest with you as you requested but I just can't make a diagnosis on the internet without examining you in person.Those are the kind of phenomenon that people who are psychotic describe, and they would tend to be considered as psychotic features. But that label is misleading.
Avatar m tn i tried abilify after that from a third doctor who said i defaintely didnt have schzophrenia, but rather a mood disorder with schzo tendancies that came out from taking drugs. I still couldnt stop the thoughts of being judged, imaginging people talking about me and often i wold engage in conversations with them in my head and argue with them but i knew that it definately wasnt real. I went off the meds because i got severe akathesia from them and ive been off them since.

Avatar f tn Oh, yes, this is an important reaction to medication and you MUST visit the prescribing doc right away, do a telephone visit or get an emergency squeeze-in appointment, and get on some other drug besides what you're on, if any. Some anti-psychotic drugs will cause Parkinsonian-type reactions, and they can stick around if you keep taking the suspicious medicine.
Avatar f tn I feel like I'm psychotic or something worst. I don't care if my doctor told me that she's never seen any bad effects with the nuva ring, it's obvious and it's getting out of me today!
985707 tn?1248876269 IMO I don't agree with utilizing anti-psychotic drugs to treat depression. Reason is because there are better drugs to use that have less side effects. Are you sure your diagnosis is simply Major Depression? The diazepam is just an anti-anxiety benzo and will not cause any adverse reaction to the Risperidone. Be careful with any benzo. They are very safe, but can be addictive.
Avatar f tn we know that this could possibly be schizophrenia, a reaction/allergy to medication, and possibly just a psychotic episode due to sleep deprivation... you can ellaborate on the obvious, but new ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn I was put on anti psychotic (Zyprexa 7.5 mg daily) and anti depressant (Pristiq 150mg daily) medication and was hospitalised in a mental institution for 6 weeks. I was diagnosed with oral thrush by my doctor and took a course of nilstat whcih did not resolve it. My two main symptoms thrush (both penile and oral) and pain in my buttocks/lower back have persisted rght up to now six months post the incident.
Avatar f tn I really cant help if after the birth of her last baby, if she wasnt put on an antidepressant, and shes not having a bad reaction. News says she is in hospital now and try are trying to get a court order to force her to take the meds which she is currently refusing. Mabey SHE knows more than the doctors regarding whats making her act so bizzare...
Avatar f tn Thus began a troubled toddler’s journey from one doctor to another, from one diagnosis to another, involving even more drugs. Autism, bipolar disorder, hyperactivity, insomnia, oppositional defiant disorder. The boy’s daily pill regimen multiplied: the antipsychotic Risperdal, the antidepressant Prozac, two sleeping medicines and one for attention-deficit disorder. All by the time he was 3. He was sedated, drooling and overweight from the side effects of the antipsychotic medicine.
Avatar f tn Finding help with those questions regarding the emergency situation that appeared to be allergic reaction on a weekend is impossible and my private psychiatrist who has an urgent number to get ahold of him does not return my calls any longer. That only helps my paranoid thoughts that he too hates me so much when he is probably setting boundaries with me, but in an emergency situation, I would have thought that he would have responded. I won't go to the ER.
Avatar f tn What do you mean by a "psychotic reaction'? And what exactly do you mean your husband is abusing drugs? Are they the drugs he is taking under a doctor's supervision of are thy drugs for 'recreational use'? If they are from the prescribed drugs for the transplant than you need to talk to his transplant team....actually, you need to talk to them, period. If the drugs he is taking for the 'fun of the high' shall we say, the drugs could be reacting badly with his transplant drugs.
Avatar n tn this past weekend my son had a psychotic episode due to a toxic reaction to pcp. he has since been put on zyprexa, 10 mg at bedtime. he has a 14 day supply of this med. before this happened he worked full time doing customer service. this morning he could not concentrate on his work and had to come back home. he has been asleep for hours. is this sleeping possibly due to the medication? what are the long lasting effects of pcp usage, even if taken only once?
Avatar n tn His parents are claiming that he was mentally incapacitated by the drugs and had a psychotic event. Is there any clinical evidence that these meds, singularly or together, are capable of producing a psychotic state?
Avatar n tn Seroquel is an atypical anti-psychotic, and lithium is a mood stabilizer. Two different types of drugs, not that it makes any difference on the planet, but you may have different side effects on the lithium...once you get through the withdrawal from seroquel, if that's what you're experiencing. I've had headaches like you have and, yeesh.
1082697 tn?1260068216 I'm not a huge fan of anti-psychotic drugs for depression or anxiety.
Avatar n tn After she started taking both drugs she began feeling tired,sleepy,fatigued,with more headaches,pain or numbing on both legs and some memory loss and the worst symptom now is that she is hearing a mans voice in her head telling her to kill her mom. She says his name is micheal and she hears him yelling at his wife for the death of their baby. She doesn't see him but she hears him and it has been happening often now.

Avatar f tn It would be wierd that seraquel would cause this on your daughter since situations as your daughter is experiencing is made better by Seraquel,,,,hearing voices is not a side effect and I have never heard of this,,but do talk to your doctor because everyone is different when it comes to medications,,also it could be a bad reaction of two drugs being mixed together.
382594 tn?1266614213 Yes, I have severe psychotic reaction to Elavil as well as physical reactions. A doc put me on it about 10 yrs. ago and I had to stop after 1 dose because of it. Different person's chemistries can react in completely unpredicatble ways to medications.
Avatar f tn If your doctor hands you a prescription for a fluoroquinolone antibiotic (this could be not only Cipro or Levaquin but also Avelox or generics ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, and moxifloxacin, or others), be very certain that your condition warrants the risks that come along with taking these drugs. Fluoroquinolones have fluoride as a central part of the drug. Fluoride is a known neurotoxin, and drugs with an attached fluoride can penetrate into very sensitive tissues.
Avatar m tn Its a required class that just talkas about methadone and its reaction with other medicines. I had jury duty today and that sucked. I go to the doctor at 3 so I will update on my visit. Staying opiate free! Weaning off the benzos! Doing great! Just having anger and pain issues. Maybe you guys can help me explain why and help me get rid of it. Thanks everyone! Weaver, jugglin, and VIC!
933174 tn?1375796153 Keep seeing the p work, psychotic, sort gets me worried. I don't see myself as psychotic. My doctor doesn't think I'm psychotic, I think he just thinks that when I'm very depressed I can get this way. I remember calling my therapist while I was in San Diego on a nightmare vacation, where the whole time I thought I had rabies or something was terriblly wrong with me. I might add, I was also on a medication for birth control called yaz, which I think contributed to the whole thing.
Avatar n tn Usually, something else is going on (e.g. reaction to abuse, drugs, neurological issues, etc...). All of the other causes would need to be ruled out first. Also - there are many different psychotic spectrum disorders with Schizophrenia and Schizoaffective disorder being the most severe. The diagnosis may be a less specific (less severe) psychotic disorder. However, I agree with iladvocate.
Avatar n tn Eight out of the last 13 school shooters were taking prescribed psychiatric drugs, and only now is the FDA investigating the fact these drugs can cause violence," she said.
Avatar f tn But in the meantime all you can do is keep reminding yourself that these thoughts of something bad happening and these bad feelings you're having are from the drugs, not because anything bad is actually happening. Your reaction to it is the main reason why I've never done any drugs myself. I'm afraid of having such a bad experience as you are. So I'm staying away from all that crap. I hope this experience will also make you not want to do it anymore, too.
Avatar m tn I don't know how many of you are familiar with Akathisia which is a reaction to certain drugs such as antipsychotics and SSRIs. I had this reaction after taking some medicine for nausea that had an antipsychotic and also when I took metoclopramide. This was by far the worst feeling in earth. You feel like you have been buried alive. When you are still you feel an aweful urge to move and when you move you feel extremely tired.
Avatar f tn 2) If so, would it be typical and appropriate for a patient who has never had a seizure, and has not been diagnosed with manic depression, schizophrenia, or any other psychosis? 3) Would the combination of these 4 (or 5) drugs be likely to cause a side effect of interference with thinking, memory, and speech? I ask for a family friend, who has been prescribed and is taking these all 4 of these medications daily this year.
