Common Questions and Answers about Zoloft and xanax interaction

zoloft

Avatar f tn What are the side effects of the interaction between xanax, neurontin, and zoloft? I take two 100mg pills of neurontin, one .25 mg pill of xanax, and two 100mg pills of zoloft at night. I feel really tired and weak when I awake in the morning. After I get going I am fine for a few hours but then I need to take a nap. I am able to fall asleep at night, even after I nap for a few hours. I am a college student and I am afraid that these drugs are affecting my ability to go to classes.
Avatar n tn Just wanted to say, I am on Zoloft, and have been on it for a year for Major Depression, I take 50MG I also have Anxiety, which Zoloft dosnt help.
192332 tn?1189759428 I just wish that so many people put so many negative posts about xanax and ZOLOFT!! ZOLOFT AND WILL POWER/BRAIN POWER IS GOING TO CURE YOU!!
1995824 tn?1330382649 While there is an interaction between xanax and Incivek (which I found out after finishing Incivek) all that it says is that you should modify the dose. Incivek can increase the dose. I can't believe a professional would say you should just stop xanax cold turkey. That is crazy, I am so sorry. There are many drugs that Incivek will interact with some on the list, some have not made the list as they have only been discovered since the Incivek's release.
Avatar n tn I have alot of questions,first let me start by saying I have been on xanax for over 8 years and started zoloft in 2000.three days after I started the zoloft I felt a huge difference,to the better.well the past almost 2 years I have not been taking my zoloft really at all,except like 2 times a month.The reason is I have been an alcoholic for over 10 years but the alcohol use has gotten very bad in the past year.
Avatar n tn But regardless, yes it will interact with the Xanax but if you have been taking Xanax on a regular basis then if you discontinue it all at once the results could be fatal. I'm more concerned about the interaction with Xanax and the fact that marijuana could worsen even an anxiety disorder than the idea that some people smoke marijuana. But if you want, look it up a medically reliable site about drug interactions and what I have posted can be clinically confirmed.
266195 tn?1215314011 Does anyone know of any possible interaction between xanax and prozac taken together? My doctor says he's not aware of anything, But I just wanted to get some opinions from people who may have first hand knowledge or know of someone who does. So I guess do benzos and ssri's mix well? I really need the xanax untill the prozac can kick in. And I really need the prozac because I can't keep taking this xanax, the prescribed dose is already losing it's effect.
Avatar f tn Forster, I asked my regular doctor about klonopin because I had heard it was long acting and thought maybe it would help me start the zoloft and stay on zoloft. She said she hadn't heard much about it and that she would look into it and get back to us the next day. She got back to us and said that she thought that we should try the klonopin and prescribe dissolvable .25mg wafers to take twice a day.
Avatar m tn I've heard that ativan is actually the worst for you from several doctors but was only trying to get users experience. With xanax I can still function great at work and I've heard valium and ativans just knock you out and tranquilize you to the state of uselessness.
237509 tn?1189759428 has perscribed Ativan for me to take at bedtime and when I spoke to them last week they said they thought they should call in a new perscription for the Ativan to help wean from the Xanax...I declined because I'm having a hard enough time with the Xanax and am afraid to keep adding. You mentioned switching to something with a longer half life like Valium... would that be in addition to the Xanax or stopping the Xanax completely and replacing with Valium?
Avatar f tn I strongly believe it can help with the transition and there is no known interaction. Please consider that I'm not a doctor and the above suggestion should be discussed with your doctor.
1719825 tn?1316269432 hey yea im on day 8 of zoloft and my anxiety seems to be very high. actually just had a small panic attack a few mins ago.and took a .25 xanax im sorry your going through this and i wish i had some advice for you. stay strong there are alot of good people with great advise on here.

449619 tn?1206370243 I've seen the Thomas recipe and if I get any energy today I'm going to head out and look for some of the stuff, but I am concerned since I didn't ask the doc about that (didn't see it until after I told doc I flushed my meds) and since I do take 150 mg of Zoloft a day, well... I don't know about any interaction. Well, I'm signing off now to post in the forum real quick-like while I'm not shaking too badly...
1011826 tn?1274496312 ) at the moment im not on any psych meds other than xanax, as the zoloft i was taking for 3 weeks made me want to die from panic and anxiety, a total paradoxial effect, when i was taking it for panic attacks and anxiety in general. after most of my life at pdocs and therapists, im exhausted with all the meds and concotions and stuff i have to do just to be 'normal', its almost like ive given up on the mental health community in my area!
Avatar m tn When she was originally diagnosed with BD/Depression, the doctors put her on Zoloft, Potassium and Xanax (PRN). She is now on Cymbalta (daily) and Xanax (PRN), and has even weened off of those, generally only taking the Cymbalta when she has BD episodes and taking Xanax if her anxiety acts up. Based on her really bad BD episodes in the past, I am afraid of taking her computer away as I feel this will only send her deep in to depression or make her anxiety skyrocket.
Avatar m tn recovering drug addict with 3 years clean with the help of Paxil, Suboxone and Xanax. I'll prescribed by the same Doctor Who is aware of my past addiction issues. I myself wanted to cut out the benzo's and went for a proper diagnosis and sure enough my instincts were correct. Diagnosis: OCD, ADHD, ASD. The last is a new one called autism spectrum disorder in the old DSM-IV it would've been called Asperger syndrome.
Avatar n tn And if that isn't enough - had my first anxiety attack Sunday PM - had the Rescue come out and then another on Monday at work. I just chewed up Xanax - 100mg and it finally helped. Hope you feel better soon!
Avatar n tn I was placed on several different depression drugs as well including Depakote, Prozac, and Zoloft. All of these made me emotionless and mean. When I started using pot, I noticed a marked improvement in my attention span, social interaction, and desire to interact with the world that had shunned me. BUT... I am a case from a handful of successes from pot and ADHD. We need to use caution and study this more before jumping to a conclusion.
Avatar n tn It is better lately and xanax hasn't been needed. But I also have bipolar and that's a whole other ball of wax. Either of them doesn't make the other let up...I ain't no doc, but the cessation of alcohol could be the cause of the anxietyespecially since you been doing it quite a while now.. bottom line...
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar n tn Life has been one hell of a roller coaster, but in this time I have managed to graduate college and an MBA, secure and maintain a well-paying and fulfilling business career and marry the love of my life (and hang on to her thus far). I have seen 3 different family doctors, 2 different psychiatrists and 1 endocrinologist...

Avatar n tn Like many of you have said, it is comforting to know that there are others out there struggling with the same things as me. I was absolutely terrified when last year I woke up in the middle of the night with loud pulsatile tinnitus in my left ear. Irom that point on I had constant (often daily) headaches/neckaches and this low bass beating in my left ear at night. Often, by morning, my headaches would be worse and the beating in my ear would turn into a roar.
Avatar f tn For the past few months it has ranged from the 140's-150/90something and last week I checked it and it was 160/101! I have started taking Xanax (prescribed) and I feel like an overly anxious emotional husk at times. I starting having panic attacks around December, and while they have subsided I still have them sometimes during or after a major argument with him. The worst part is..when I have them, he doesn't know how to react and it seems to anger him more.
Avatar f tn And please, please be careful with the Xanax. It is addicting in itself and dangerous to withdrawal from. You want to be clean from all mind and mood altering substances so you need to be very cautious. I am glad you are going for the supplements. You hang in there!
Avatar n tn so being like this for so long has caused that to kick in even more and I'm taking more Xanax. I'm thinking something's just weird this year....and whatever it was, I got it! I've heard of a lot of people being like this this year. I don't have a deviated septum and Dr. said I didn't need surgery...but if it would help me I would try it! How do you get a deviated septum? And...why are you having problems now from it and didn't before? These are questions I'd ask.

Avatar m tn 0Mgs of Lorazepam and 300Mgs of Zoloft, that may be a problem. Your dosages on your Zoloft and Lorazepam are ultra low. No question in my mind that your safe. Nice thing about Benzos and SSRI's is that they play together nice and their is no bad interaction between the two. Just watch that Lorazepam my friend. It's a safe drug, but it has a way of making you want more and more the longer you take it. I am addicted to Benzos and I never thought it would happen to me.
