Sertraline and clonazepam

Common Questions and Answers about Sertraline and clonazepam


Avatar f tn I´m seeing a psychiatrist and he prescribed me Neuryl (contains clonazepam) to help to handle this irrational hiv fear from kissing. Does any of you have any experience with these kind of meds? I´d appreciate all the comments because I have never used them.
490426 tn?1286266353 Dear Space, I have been taking Clonazepam for ten years and Sertraline (an SSRI cousin of Citalopram) for eight years. During that time, I have been on and off those drugs for different reasons. What I have found out is, you cannot stop or reduce dosage on either drug without going into withdrawals. THAT is what has made you feel so strange, when you have tried to stop your medicine in the past. It's just like in the movies, when the heroin addict needs his fix, he goes nuts.
Avatar f tn You must speak to a medical professional, we can't give you any advice regarding medications. Anti-depressants and psychiatric drugs can take time to work, there aren't instant cure pills. With all the meds you are taking, call your doctor or at least speak to your pharmacist.
1103980 tn?1257909276 After 1 month of the incident I began taking Clonazepam 0.5mg and Sertraline HCl (zosert 50mg) during bedtime. It was quite okay before six months but now I'm Suffering from Miagrane and Depression since last 6 months. Can U tell Me an effective alternative for my disease? Please Help me.....
Avatar m tn So my doctor prescribed me some Clonazepam to first relax (Klonopin). And then to start Zoloft (Sertraline) a week later. The week with Clonazepam 50 mg was magic, palpitions almost all gone and lot less strong, muscles relaxed, although my libido was greatly reduced as a side effect. I could go out in crowds, stores, do anything I wanted to, feeling perfectly calm and normal. Yesterday I took a Zoloft, I took 25 mg. That felt very unpleasant.
Avatar f tn Has anyone else found this to be true? I'm not spiraling into complete dispair for which I think I have the sertraline to thank and my mind that was once so full of intrusive thoughts and ruminations is clear again, normal reactions & emotions are returning, my sex drive is back (!) so it's definitely working on a lot if levels. Has anyone got any thoughts on the anxiety thing? Thank you.
Avatar n tn Drug treatments include benzodiazepines such as lorazepam, clonazepam, and sometimes SSRIs such as sertraline, citalopram, etc. Another drug option used off-label is viagra, which increases blood flow to smooth muscle. This is assuming that all gastrointestinal and neurological disease has been ruled out.
Avatar n tn I take zoloft and klonopin for my anxiety. 1. What is can you tell me about zoloft and long qt. Are there safer drugs out there I should take that do not increase the qt interval like paxil or celexa. I worry that since there is a slight tick in my electrical system I'm at greater risk for zoloft effecting me. 2. I also take klonopin, are there any know cardiovascular effects known with this that could cause problems. Is the combo of zoloft and klonopin perfectly safe. 3.
1308164 tn?1275227847 hi, i am on clonazepam and zoloft as well. i have started zoloft 50mg, and i take klonopin for anxiety attacks, 0.25 x 3 daily.
Avatar m tn However, after using this combo for a month, my panic attacks have worsened, and I actually have to use Clonazepam SOS for severe attacks. My psychiatrist has now asked me to start on Zyprexa 2.5mg and Sertraline 50mg. My questions are: 1. Although I do not have schizophrenia, why am I constantly being prescribed antipsychotics as off-label anxiolytics? 2. Is it true that zyprexa and risperidone can induce schizophrenia if a non-schizophrenic person uses them? 3.
1910757 tn?1348686919 I was not taking antibiotics or any other meds at the time, besides Clonazepam and Zolpidem. I've decided to give another chance to Sertraline by switching to the brand I was taking before the diarrhea started. So far the symptoms have continued (though not as harshly), so I'm crossing my fingers that maybe I won't have to switch to Venlafaxine.
Avatar n tn There is a mechanism known to us that explains why caution should be exercised while using a combination of Sertraline and Propranolol. Sertraline and other Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) inhibit a certain enzyme which usually metabolizes Propranolol. Due to this inhibition, Propranolol action may be enhanced. But it will not be appropriate to look at this isolated piece of information and ignore other evidences.
Avatar m tn My BP is naturally low (when off caffeine) SBP 105-110 mgHg, so adding propranolol is not an option. Clonazepam helps a little, it think, it's hard to tell. Both sertraline and bupropion have tremor as a side effect. Any thoughts on how I could work with my doctor to suppress this bilateral hand tremor?
Avatar m tn I took gabapentin for many years( 7+) without any trouble along with clonazapam and sertraline. I have suffered for many years with GAD, Agorapgobia, other phobias, and depression from all that anxiety! My symptoms became unbearable in my teens and I am 50 yrs old now. Like I said, 7 years with this combo and I was feeling pretty good. Still hard to leave the house, but I could do it with careful planning. Some months ago I felt incredibly depressed and slow, so my Dr.
297366 tn?1215816651 Basically, he said that my reflexs are hyperactive, but not pathological and since my MRIs were normal, there was nothing more he could do. He does not think I have MS, but he never diagnoses it and admits he doesn't know what the diagnostic criteria is. He asked my for the third time in a couple months if I worked outside the home. (This man has been my personal doctor for almost 10 years!
Avatar n tn I've been on Prozac and Xanax (a benzo), and now Lexapro and Xanax for about 4 years now, and I've had the occasional drink (or 2) with no problems at all. The only thing is that the meds make the alcohol more "effective." That is 1 drink will feel like 2 drinks. So definitely don't binge drink, but a glass of wine or a cocktail here and there is not likely to cause any problems. Excessive alcohol use can definitely cause problems.
Avatar n tn i tried venlaflaxin as well as escitalopram both of them gave severe abdominal side effetcs like burning sensation n abdominal pain so i was switched to mirtazepine and now am taking mirtaz 7.5 and clonazepam 0.25 mg every night my doc said .. tapper them if you feel comfortable i tried few times but when i skip this regime i feel low how to tapper? or its better to be on this regime for evr?
Avatar f tn My psychiatrist is treating me for bipolar using Abilify, Sertraline, and Clonazepam. Several other meds. caused such bad reactions that we had to stop them. At the same time, I am still not able to work and have a terrible time with my moods. Any suggestions. Thanks.
541465 tn?1219431486 About all I Do have left are clonazepam and methadone. cause I never took all I was allowed to, and once I got divorced, no one was stealing them anymore. the extras piled up. Nothing I've tried helps the icepick in the back of my eyeball feeling. It was gone for years, but it's back. I can't even see good, and my eye is watering, and hurts like a mutha. If the thamadol won't help, what will? i set it aside as my 'exit stratagey', for when that time comes. That day is not THIS day.
Avatar n tn I read Sertraline reacts with Propranolol. It makes Propranolol more toxic and can give me low BP and bradycardia. Recently my BP was a bit high (140/90) and pulse rate was 72. Shall I take the psychiatric medicines and how should I schedule the medications without suffering a lot?
Avatar f tn I take topiramate, an anticonvulsant, sertraline (Zoloft) and I have a prescription for clonazepam that I rarely touch. I also have temazepam 30mg I take sometimes because I have severe insomnia and have for years.
Avatar m tn I recently read of a patient being treated with sertraline for anger and clonazepam for PTSD and anxiety. This combo seemed to help. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn i've been on clonazepam for 2 1/2 month i'm currently on 2/2mg at night and 2/2mg in the morning plus serequel, i'm still having problems with excessive worrying/thoughts, panic attacks and agitation and mood swings. i've told my doctor this but he insist on keeping me on it. why? whats a better med for panic attacks. because clonazepam only help with my mood swings and agitation.
Avatar f tn Even though I’m totally unhappy with the way things are currently at least I don’t have to put myself out there and risk embarrassment, failure, and rejection. I'm scared of everything. Even if I had the courage to move away from home and live on my own (still living with my Dad), I can’t even afford it. I can’t support myself on the salary that I make at my current job.

Avatar f tn Well, one of the most serious warnings about starting an antidepressant is they can cause aggressive and suicidal thoughts. I doubt the clonazepam will stop working, but what it's doing is suppressing your anxiety about the thoughts, not the thoughts themselves, most likely, so to me at least it seems an odd choice to deal with that particular problem.
Avatar n tn I'm 34 yr old male and have been experiencing various chest and left arm pains for about three months. I've seen a plethora of doctors from cardiologist to internist to GI doc to psychologist. Heart problems have been ruled out by numerous EKG's and stress echo test. GI doc found I have a hiatal hernia/GERD from upper GI and is currently being treated with Nexium. Have also had ultrasound of liver/gall bladder and MRI of abdomen - all normal.
480448 tn?1426952138 or was watching the world through a movie projector, instead of through my own eyes and mind. Therefore, I am going to share with you all what *I* know about these phenomena, and hopefully reassure some of you that this is par for the anxiety while irritating, maybe even is totally harmless. Derealization and depersonalization are two terms that are sometimes used interchangably. Truth is, they DO vary a little bit in their presentation....

959034 tn?1253675076 In a published case report, a 72-year-old woman treated with sertraline and a 32-year-old woman treated with venlafaxine developed movement disorders and symptoms consistent with the serotonin syndrome shortly after single doses of metoclopramide. Both cases resolved following treatment with diazepam, and the patients resumed their sertraline and venlafaxine therapy without further incident.
