Avatar f tn He will not cut down on anything else and I have been trying to get him to take fish oil tablets and men's health vitamins at the very least? I am so nervous about all of this especially since reading about people going cold turkey? what the heck are ZAPS. He will not let me into his head, and tells me not to nag if I bring any of this up!

Avatar m tn In addition to their potential as stand-alone agents, a review of clinical studies investigating the use of supplements along with antidepressant medications (including SSRI drugs such as fluoxetine and sertraline and tricyclic drugs such as amitriptyline) found that SAMe, EPA from fish oil, methylfolate and vitamin D may increase the benefits of these drugs (Sarris, Am J Psychiatry 2016).
Avatar f tn I am a 24 year old female and I began taking sertraline at the end of August. Therefore, I've been taking it about three months. When I first began taking the medication, I completely lost my appetite, felt dizzy, and just out of it. I literally had to force feed myself which was dreadful, but I know I needed to eat and ate as much as I could for at least every meal so my body wouldn't think I was starving it.
Avatar n tn It won't cure or treat depression but many people do find some improvement when they take a daily vitamin B supplement - also known as brain food. The B vitamins help the body/mind deal with stress and can boost energy levels a little bit. Our bodies don't store this vitamin so its vital you get sufficient from your daily diet but many don't. If you choose to try this buy a 'complex' formula with all the different B's (B1, B2... B6... B12 etc), they work better together.
Avatar m tn I walk to class from my apartment and everyone and everything looks black and white. All the students talk and talk but all I hear is gibberish. Lost in my mind I wonder why am I here. What is my purpose. I'm home from class and I watch TV. The screen is blank. I eat my dinner, but it taste so bland and uninviting. I'm trying to do some home work, but can't because my mind is just an empty shell. Its time to go to sleep and I get ready for bed.

Avatar f tn Thanks for your reply. I only take aspirin OTC and vitamins, not at the same time of course. My MD left the practice due to illness. I have seen my new MD once, she is only in the office 3x a week. Other times they put me in with PA's even for urgent care. PA saw me last 2 times. They scheduled me for a heart ultrasound in their office April 13th. that is done by a tech and read by a cardiologist. They put me on Amlodipine 5 mg once daily, so far no bad reactions but no good ones either.
Avatar m tn I also looked up the drug, sertraline which you said your doctor prescribed for you and you took for four days. Sertraline is an antidepressant and it also has some really dangerous and serious side effects. I hope you don't mind me saying this, but I don't think your doctor knows what you are suffering from. Perhaps it is time to find another doctor for a fresh look at your symptoms and for a second opinion from another doctor.
Avatar f tn I have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees and hips. It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again.
Avatar n tn I eventually fell off the daily routine and instead have concentrated on a good diet, taking a wide range of vitamins, minerals, and supplements. I've found that humans have a RIGHT to be depressed many times, but taking drugs to alleviate deppression is crazy. It becomes a vicious cycle that ropes innocent victims in. Weight gain, also. Watching what I eat and making myself exercise releases the endorphins that combat depression, and helps considerably to keep the weight down.
Avatar f tn Until he knows for sure whether he is F3 or Cirrhosis, he should avoid red meat, limit sodium, and not take any vitamins with iron. He should eat more veggies and fruits, preferably organic, and try to make sure he is at a good BMI. Keep us posted and let us know what a hepatologist recommends.
1374011 tn?1297473893 a way to feel happy and socialize and talk to girls be be able to go out...I am 27 now and have only been a true addict for the last 18 months or so. Now I cant go out of the house without it because of the withdrawls. I have to plan everything I do ahead of time to make sure I have enough to not get sick while I am out or away or at work. This is harder than anything anyone can possibly imagine unless they have gone through this themself.
5391794 tn?1392785696 thanks nurse girl. what about taking multi-vitamins while on Zoloft? and advice one that?
503727 tn?1210442710 i was taking sertraline (zoloft) and didnt find it effective. i stopped taking it and now im trying to shake the last bit of this anxiety stuff off. meds can be good if you are in really deep anxiety though, only use them temproarily (or at least thats what i say) until you can conquer these panic attacks. having scientific reassurance helps a lot. since you've been tested for multiple things and show up fine, be relieved, that's perfect.
Avatar n tn I take lisinopril hctz20/12.5 mg, simvastin 40 mg, premarin .625 mg, sertraline 50mg, and equate one daily women's proactive vitamins. Why am I so sweaty? Is there anything I can do about it?
Avatar f tn Chronic severe diarrhea began with the first one (Zoloft/sertraline) and has continued. It became a little less severe when I was switched to Effexor/venlafaxine, which caused a host of other problems. I have now been off these drugs and back on my original antidepressant, Wellbutrin, for roughly two years and nine months.
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.

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....
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.

504535 tn?1210530632 Hi, This could be as simple to treat as gastritis-chest pain could be due to esophagitis, and an infective diarrhoea. A course of anti-biotics with B-complex vitamins should settle the diarrhoea. You could try syrups/gels which aid in digestion and antacid medications for 15 days. If these symptoms have been coming on and off for a few months then you do need to get it avaluated further. Considering that you are on treatment for anxiety, that in itself can lead to the above symptoms.
Avatar n tn ) Anyway, no medical doctor had ever found this before. He is taking natural herbs and vitamins to try to readjust his adrenal gland. It's too early to tell if this is doing anything, but you may want to look into it for yourself. If you do, let me know. I'd be interested to see. Good luck!

Also durring some attempts to eat everything has an overpowering taste or smell (fish stcks taste like raw fish).
1171357 tn?1285855420 Good proteins, carbohydrates ( complex ones are preferred ), lipids such as Omega-3 and 6, vitamins and minerals intake is essential and it does influence your mood. With today's processed food and general malnutrition it is very hard to keep a healthy and balanced diet this is why supplements should be considered and you can send me a private message if you need information regarding vitamins and supplements.
1419357 tn?1282279828 I have had the Mirena for three years, and my period was normal and fairly light before the Mirena was inserted.

Avatar m tn I have had long periods clean before and have never experienced anything like this before. After nine months, in desperation i went to the doctor and he has prescribed Sertraline for depression, my symptoms where more physical than mental though. Anayway the Sertraline has not improved anything. I have looked sertraline up on this site and the common side effects are pretty much the same as what i was feeling anyway! So i just wanted to see if anyone has experienced anything similar.
