Avatar f tn Has anyone ever done that before? And has anyone ever had an advise reaction to taking Zoloft and Xanax together?
Avatar n tn I being taking Xanax for almost a year and my doctor prescribed me Zoloft to stop xanax, how can that be? dont know how will that affect me I am kind of scare of using both at the same time, any answer on how Zoloft works?
Avatar n tn You should believe your doctor, he wouldn't mix drugs together if he knew it were dangerous. You can take zoloft and clozenpam together. Hope you feel better. Hang in there.
Avatar f tn I am a bit fearful and worried if I should continue the Zoloft. I didn't have panic attacks this severe before taking the Zoloft. Has anyone else experienced this? My doctor just prescribed Klonopin for me to take in the event I need to calm down. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn just my opinion....i was started on zoloft and xanax for panic/anxiety attacks. The longer I was on the zoloft the less I need the xanax. In fact, I haven't taken xanax in years.....the zoloft has totally controlled my attacks.
Avatar m tn She wrote me a prescription for Celexa but the drug-information sheet listed the same side effects as Zoloft so I decided not to start that medication.....I did advise her of one of my friends who also took zoloft and then celexa but also had bad side effect....Her doctor put her on xanex and she has had no serious side effects.....The doctor said that she would not prescribe me xanex because of my previous admitted drug/Alcohol addictions.......
311051 tn?1193419806 Now they took me off klonopin an put me back on xanax. I am now taking 4mg a day 1 and a half pills every 4 hous. I am still very shaky and lightheaded at times, my pulse is always at 98 or higher, Why? Why me?
397118 tn?1219765850 one more thing, the extreme mood swings are from the drugs. both the xanax and paxil can cause severe agitation, palpitations, anxiety and anger issues when stopping. It may be he goes on a binge, then doesn't have any for a few days and thats when he 'acts out'. Two things: 1.
Avatar n tn I take xoloft and xanax, and have taken them together for over 10 years. I took Xanax exclusively for a number of years before that. Let me just say, there may be memory loss in association with taking this medication, but it allows me to live a somewhat normal life; not housebound, and able to attend church, weddings, etc. Write directly to me at ***@**** if I can be of any further help. Help is out there now......get it, don't stay afraid forever, because you don't have to anymore.
Avatar n tn There are several other medications you can talk to his or your doctor about including Wellbutrin, Effexor, Pristiq for the depression and Xanax or Ativan for the anxiety. All AD meds are hit and miss for everyone. What might work for one person may not work for the next. You just have to try them and see what sticks. I took Effexor, but didn't like the sexual side-effects, so I switched to Wellbutrin which gave me all kinds of bad side-effects, so I ended up going back to the Effexor.
Avatar n tn I know these are a lot of questions, but the main ones are, how long will it take for the Zoloft to work? Is it okay to take Xanax and Zoloft together? Am I going to have to be on medication forever, or will this pass? I understand how confusing and jumbled these questions might sound, but any type of advice or answer would be extremely helpful. I just want to understand why my body is doing this.
Avatar n tn Now my untreated Severe Depression and Anxiety made me feel Psychotic. The Zoloft and Xanax worked to make me feel normal, focused, calm, and level headed. It would be important for me to mention that I was also 25 years old before I was treated with AD medication to correct my severe symptoms. I have heard stories of people under the age of 20 having adverse Psychotic reactions to SSRI medications like Zoloft.
Avatar m tn I have now been put on 50 grams of zoloft a day, and also two dormicum sleeping tablets a day, and also 2 to 3 mg of xanax. The problem is that I am now still feeling so depressed and partly anxious, i have been taking extra .5 grams of xanax to calm down.i know this is idiotic and alsobeen trying take extra meds a day to just get through.
Avatar f tn Has anyone taken Zoloft and had it affect there nsvt?? I have nsvt and im afraid to take Zoloft. Any suggestions?
445263 tn?1208805016 I wanted to touch bases with you and ask your opinion. I've been taking a little less [Zoloft and Klonopin] than you prescribed because [fill in the blank]. I know I should've consulted with you first and I'd like to talk to you about it to see what you think." You might add something like "I haven't been entirely honest with you and I'd like to start again.
192332 tn?1189759428 The only thing with Zoloft is when u first start taking it u feel like crap but only for maximum one week by then ur body would of gotten used to it thus taking xanax and Zoloft together at the start is a good idea because xanax stops u feeling like crap for that first week of taking Zoloft... Once you and your doc think that you have gotten over the illness and ready to wean off the Zoloft then that's what will happen..
Avatar n tn My husband decided not to take it partly because he wanted to monitor how he was truly feeling without Zoloft. My dad (who is a pharmacist) saw no problem with my husband taking Xanax SPARINGLY to help him through the tapering process, but my husband just wasn't comfortable with the idea of taking Xanax out of fear of becoming dependant upon it. Apparently Xanax can be quite addictive.
689267 tn?1235245349 ativan(lorazepam) is very similar benzodiazepine in chemical structure and in its effects to alprazolam(xanax) and also shares the same abuse, dependence, and addiction liability. i was taking originally 6mgs a night for insomnia and panic attacks starting at the early evening and taking it up to going to bed.
305180 tn?1279720347 This isn't a judgement, just a question. I took Zoloft for awhile and it made me sick so I stopped taking it. I have suicidal tendencies anyway and if Zoloft adds to them not taking them was a good thing, for me at least. You mentioned you and your fiance might break up. That might make you depressed, particularly now when you have two children and another one coming. Supposedly, our hormones change and we get more emotional at that time but I only "suffered" from cravings.
Avatar f tn I've been taking a 25mg dose of Zoloft for 12 days now and don't think I've seen any improvement yet. Now after speaking with a counselor the other day she thinks my anxiety is stuck on high right now and I need something to bring it down before us talking would really help. She doesn't think they're much she can do for me at the moment given where my anxiety is. I couldn't even focus on what she was saying because my mind was racing.
Avatar f tn Personally, I would try the dosage increase of the Zoloft first before trying a new med, especially if the Zoloft WAS working for you. I was in a panic/amxiety support group years back, and I'll tell you that Zoloft was one of the meds that people reported the most significant progress with for anxiety/panic...including my own experience with it, which was very positive.
Avatar f tn I am not sure if that is from the Zoloft or anxiety. I did not get a script for Xanax. I took Xanax last year and did not like it. I was too scared to try it again. I found that when the Xanax wore off my anxiety was worse than before I took one. I have been dealing with this anxiety for a while now, so I am happy to FINALLY be doing something about it! Thank you for your help! I am thankful people like you are here to help others' out!
Avatar f tn Is it ok to smoke weed and use xanax together? It seems as if weed would be good for anxiety because it calms you down. I would rather use that then xanax because of it being so addicting but I'm scared to smoke again. I read some good and bad experiences of smoking weed with anxiety and I think the bad ones just scared me. I hate all these feelings and I just wish they would go away. I have a counseling appointment in a couple days and I hope that will help. Any advice?
Avatar n tn yes xanax and alchol are a deadly mix... take it from me! I was prescribed xanax and zoloft about a month ago for anxioty and depression.... I was aware of the dangers of mixing xanax with alchol and considered my self a responsible adult. But as of last friday night 12/15/07 I didn't take the drug xanax mixed with alchol seriouly enough. I had taken 2/ .5 ml for a total of 1ml of xanax at aproximatly 10:00 pm that evening....
Avatar n tn 50 once a night of Xanax, but when I stopped taking it, couldn't sleep and was so anxious and depressed. But now I am hearing that the Ativan can be just as bad. Has anyone heard of using Ativan for Xanax withdrawal? Also, what is the norm for how long the withdrawal symptoms last? Thanks for any help.
