Sertraline melatonin

Common Questions and Answers about Sertraline melatonin


Avatar f tn The reason I wound up on this combo was that when weaning the mirtazapine got depressive symptoms coming back and those were controlled by adding in a bit of sertraline. But now I’m thinking maybe I have mild / early serotonin syndrome just in the irritability / agitation phase.
Avatar f tn ( (he also gave me a number to ring to arrange counselling, but I have had it in the past, and followed my own advice move away, start new life etc) I have been on antidepressants in the past for anxiety/depression but they made me climb the walls with anxiety, I never stayed on them. Except for mirtazipine (remeron?) I was on that for 2 years, but quit cold turkey and then went to a dark place for a year. But soon came out of it.
Avatar f tn Worry about family members over the last 12 months (Alzheimer's father, transgender son failing college, other son moving overseas, another son choosing college, brother with cancer) has brought on crippling anxiety attacks - racing thoughts, jitters, insomnia, stomach cramps , ringing ears, muscle ache headaches, ... My Dr has put me on 25mg sertraline and I am on day 8 - feeling worse than before and getting no sleep.
1879722 tn?1321461948 Day 1 tracker. Normally i take 100mg sertraline per day. My depression has gotten worst last few months. Sis sick, job loss, etc. Tried 150 mg of sertraline for 2 weeks. Steel feel depressed, anxious, insomnia. Today, I will take 100 mg zoloft and 100 mg 5-htp. Will try a few days. Will try 5mg melatonin also to sleep. Was taking OTC sleep aids.
Avatar m tn I also take melatonin 3 mg since I am a night shift nurse and have a difficult time sleeping after work. Ever since starting the medications, I am having constant bloody noses (3-4 per week). Yesterday, I was watching a movie and my gums started to bleed randomly. I spit out a couple table spoons of blood. Anyone else experienced this? I asked the doctor and she said not to worry about it with no further follow up. This has been going on for several weeks. Is it time for a second opinion?
Avatar f tn I take xanax bars when I'm not pregnant. But pregnant I take low doses of melatonin. Most people use it for sleep but I have a high drug tolerance so I was suggested it by my doc. It works amazing it calms my nerves like my xanax doe. and its all natural and safe during pregnancy. Ask your ob about it.
Avatar n tn My daughter is 15 and has been on zoloft (sertraline) for almost 4 years due to anxiety. She now has been off the drug for two weeks after being weaned down to a half dose (25mg) for two weeks. We were never told of possible side effects of coming off the drug and I'm not sure what to look for. She has had severe nausea, some headaches, and mood swings.

Avatar m tn I have enough various sleeping pills to kill a horse (melatonin, ambien, trazadone, klonopin (personal fave), and vistiril (sp?) ) but I try to stay away from them for the most part, esp bc it makes waking up/ class the next day so difficult. Should I drop to 25mgs for awhile, tough it out, or bug my psychiatrist once again?
Avatar m tn Also lots of B1, and B12, magnesium complex, glucosamine MSN and collagen. I also take RX of sertraline (zoloft) Gabapentin and trazadone to sleep. So please anyone comment with suggestions or any help!
Avatar f tn I've been friggen taken sertraline 200mg for 2 months and both my doctor and psychiatrist tell me to keep taking it despite any help. My biggest symptoms are trouble concentrating and insomnia. So why am I taking sertraline when its side effect is insomnia?? Also i'm taking 200mg Seroquel that has a side effect of confusion, that's what I want to avoid.
Avatar m tn The herbs passionflower and lemon balm may also be helpful for anxiety. Although melatonin and valerian are sometimes promoted for anxiety, there is not enough evidence to support their use for this purpose. There is weak evidence, however, that valerian may produce calming effects in stressful situations. A number of studies suggest kava may reduce symptoms of anxiety; however, be aware there are potential safety issues and drug interactions.
9457360 tn?1404072385 Also my sertraline dose dropped from 100mg to 50mg last week. I took 100mg of sertraline (an anti - anxiety tablet before you start) yesterday and the fever has stopped. Doctors have told me my 'withdrawal' was from two substances at once, hence why so bad. I started this whole process five days ago, went to my doctors on Friday and am now being told to try harder , even though I've dropped 120mg a day. You may think I'm a failure, but I don't! And I won't be made to feel like one 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 n tn I ups your body's production of both seratonin as well as melatonin (melatonin makes you very very tired). 5 htp has been used to treat anxiety, and it was what saved me from suicidal depression when I was going through detox. I suggest you read up on it on He is a medical doctor who has studied many nutriceuticals (including 5htp) extensively and has first hand research to report.
Avatar f tn However, instead of doing what I should and going to my GP for help and asking to go back on my trusty old sertraline, I remembered how the codeine made me feel and started to take it to deal with the anxiety. I even looked up the toxic doses based on my bodyweight and found that 16-24 would give me the calm well-being I craved without too much risk.
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 We are so appreciative of your comments and suggestions. We were running out of hope as all the tests have been negative (and that is a good thing too of course) and there just didn't seem like there was much left other than to medicate (we are trying to avoid this if we can). By the way we did a spinal tap about a month or so ago and she is just getting over that (the tests were all negative).
Avatar f tn I read your comments over on the child behavior forum. Really need a lot more info. Really need to know when he started the meds. But first things first - what kind of a doc is prescribing the meds? I have several reasons for asking. The is a very known reaction to stim meds and anti-depressants. "Sertraline (or zoloft) is the second-most potent SSRI on the US market (Paxil is the most potent.
Avatar n tn After years of going to various psychiatrists, I am now taking Zoloft (generic Sertraline) and generic Buspirone (Buspar). They are both long lasting so I don't get that sudden panic feeling. I have not had chest pain in years, as long as I keep taking my medicine.
Avatar n tn what LR10 you have noooo idea what ya talking about do you?)... i am taking sertraline anti depressants and have bulimia so was thinking it may be down to regular vomiting and perhaps side effects from meds? anyone else in my boat? also, magnesium/ potassium levels could be a factor? relieved to have found this page - other than headboard alignment reply my mind has been put to rest a little...
Avatar f tn What i think happens is that the brain vessles spasm because serotonin is importaint in contracting the blood vessles. When we are falling asleep, serotonin is transformed into melatonin, maybe this is why we spasm when falling asleep? I dont know. Please try the diet and tell me if you too "wake up" on it, and if your joints stop cracking. When i was a kid, my back was the thing that cracked the most, and my jaw.
Avatar f tn so i was prescribed 50mg of sertaline which i was so afraid to take because i thought it would make my brain explode or something.literally. once i took it the sertraline made me feel better.for the first time in a long time i felt normal,like i was a part of the world for the past few weeks ive started feeling weird pressures in my head,sorta dizzy or like im moving when im not and slight convinced that its either the meds or that i have a brain tumor!!
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.
