Zoloft dosage dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Zoloft dosage dogs


Avatar n tn Now, him briefly upping the dose to 100mg, while I cannot imagine that would bring on his chest pain, you need to get the prescribing doc in there forthwith and have him take a look at your husband and declare what he thinks about the Zoloft. And as for putting him back on the Zoloft, in my opinion, that's NOT a good plan, he'd be better off on a tranquilizer, but I am not qualified to argue the point at all.
1139187 tn?1355710247 REPEAT AFTER ME, I will not take Zoloft. I will not take Zoloft. I will not take Zoloft. Bruce. Please do not resort to taking it. It is an anti-depressant and it is not something you want to experiment with. Take it from me who has had a horrendous time with anti-depressants!!! It will not remedy your buzzing ear! I hope to goodness you meant something else and not Zoloft!!!
1438412 tn?1315511519 i dont know alot about these meds but i have taken zoloft and it did nothing for me, i actually became sucidel on zoloft and had to come off of it.. i hope the best for you and please post when you go see your doctor.... best of wishes to you!!!
Avatar n tn I was on a high dosage of effexor for years and, before that other anti depressant drugs for 17 years. I've weaned myself off, finishing in February, 2009. What are the side affects after so many months? I went through withdrawls like a junkie would for 2 months. I am now interested to see if what and how I am feeling is due to the lack of that drug or some other cause. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I read up on the MS symptoms again today....but mostly I am just afraid as I own several dogs and take care of life by myself, no husband or family close, and now this........... The doctor put me on some antidepressant medicine and anxiety medicine and pain meds that really help but if I go off them, then I feel terrible and back to square one. Nothing is better and now the vision thing - most of the times things are so blurry and I am quite forgetful.......
Avatar n tn Before making any changes to your medication, I always suggest talking it over with your doctor. I take Zoloft and Lorazapam (1 x .5mg pill a day). Lorazapam is a shorter acting benzo than Klonopin (I have taken that too). I find both helpful, but it affects people in different ways. You are also doing the right thing by talking through these issues with somebody. Anxiety can be hard to cope with, but it seems to me that you are on the right track.
Avatar n tn OK, the topic description is very subjective but I would like to know who is pleased with the results of the anti Ds that they're taking. My GI doc suggested Zoloft but I've read (on this forum) about others. I'm going to see my doc early next week and would like to know from y'all what meds have had the best effect on these depression side effects (emotions just under the surface, confusion, disinterest, etc).
Avatar f tn I have also posted over in depression forum. I quit Zoloft after ten years, and suddenly felt fantastic. Within a month or two, I wound up with Adrenal Insufficiency and was given Hydrocortisone. While I am sure I needed it, the amount was too strong, so I cut back on it a little. Then I became VERY depressed, worst in my life! Was the return to depression from the new medicine? Anyone have experience with this problem? PLEASE answer me ASAP, I only have a half-hour.
4810971 tn?1359480360 Prozac Abilify Lexapro Zoloft Wellbutrin Seroquel these are just off the top of my head that i can think of right now. there's a lot more. like, I'll ask her about a random new medication I'm trying, an she'll just say "no, that doesn't work." We're all tired of seeing her like this, even the dogs. It's just killing me to see her like this. Anything that can help???!!! Please, if you know any medications or coping techniques that you know of, please tell me!!!
652525 tn?1225068620 We all have a great life, excellent house to live in, we have computers, dirtbikes, fourwheelers, a pond, cabin, tractors, mopeds, my favorite dog ever Maxx which runs about 2 miles beside me while I drive the four wheeler around our 40 or so acre track. We also have two other awesome dogs, but their pretty much house dogs and are spoilt... but really.. we live in like a dream world thanks to my dad and mom trying their best all their life to make that.
3297715 tn?1349023948 Gentle exercise helps too. If things get really bad, talk to your team about reducing your dosage. But try to stick it out. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Ditto, sorry bout the sides giving you grief. First, are you on antidepressants? I take Zoloft and it helps with my rage. The others have mentioned that Neurotin helps with rage. Ask your doc about other meds to keep you calmer...or get a psych appt with a dr. to prescribe something to help you get through these long weary weeks. I know what you mean about quality of life and alienating loved ones, I am lucky my hubby is very mellow. But my teen and I have had some "screamers".
Avatar n tn If you think you might be needing something, then you probably are. And don't worry about being drugged to the eyeballs. You might find that a low dosage of zoloft or whatever might help quite a lot. NO SHAME!
Avatar f tn I was already on AD, but upped the dosage during tx. For the other options: yes to on-line support group (this forum), yes to asking for more support from family and friends, yes to spending more time with pets.
Avatar f tn As for the depression, what I was saying to screaming48 was that while Wellbutrin may have been effective for her to stop smoking, it may not be the right med for her depression. Wellbutrin has a chemical structure that is different than other AD's such as Paxil or Zoloft that target seratonin. Wellbutrin is often effective for people with a history of substance abuse and targets dopamine.
Avatar f tn I want to enjoy my children and life in general so how can I do that? I had a year of zoloft but never felt any different I am now pondering trying a different medication after not being on any depression meds for a couple years to see if it might help. No I have not done counseling I do not have the insurance or the money to go that route I already have to figure out how to continue paying a chiropractor so my body can atleast function.
Avatar n tn The parethesias that you describe in her can commonly be experienced in a viral situation and perhaps ten days and the dosage (unknown) was not powerful enough for whatever was the problem to begin with? Headache and eye pain (I am assuming that there is no neuritis) are common side effects of PND but are non-specific. It seems to be one of those unfortunate situations where the test is time and waiting.
Avatar n tn I had to do my shots-3 weekly-not 1-in the morning and then I cleaned and organized and gardened and walked the dogs. I would spend lotsa nites on the 'net listening to country music when I couldn't sleep. I took naps and seiesta times when needed and don't sweat the small stuff. I'm also a medical marijuana user and didn't need any other AD's or sleep meds, etc. Embrace your inner speed freak!
Avatar n tn If you are you may need to increase your dosage. But be sure to ask your doc first. There were several times I felt like just giving up on tx. That it was to much for me to handle. But I made it thru 48 weeks. I am almost 4 months post tx. And still undetectable. So hang in there. And don't loose faith. When I read your post it made me think of this. "LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way.
Avatar f tn I have been having anxiety problems over this and wake up shaking. I am now on anxiety meds and zoloft to even me out before I start meds in 4 days.
1658980 tn?1330715150 I am taking Xanax but we are working at getting the dosage right or maybe we will be trying something else if this mania/irritabilty does not ease up. interfugen -did you find any relief for the mania/craziness? I think that if i could get this agitation to calm down, I would be able to handle everything else better.
Avatar n tn I am now pretty successful - not symptom free, but not in hell either. I have tried zoloft, paxil, lamictal - yes haze, cymbalta, elavil, you name it. Zoloft worked for me, for 1.5 yrs, then changed to pamelor and cymbalta b/c I developed peripheral neuropathy (burning feet) and they are supposed to help with pain. I take Valium when anxious, and tranxene 15mg to sleep every night. Remeron used to put me to sleep, but I gained 30lbs. Ambien - creepy but I slept ok.
Avatar n tn That's his OWN experience and doesn't mean you'll get the same. Once again, it's not proven yet except in dogs. It hasn't proved in humans (who would give cardiopoison to humans?!?) so it's not known if it'll do the same for humans.
Avatar f tn Medications, particularly serotonin medications like escitalopram (Lexapro) or sertraline (Zoloft) can certainly plan a part but treatment usually also involves finding a therapist or coach who can help you move gently out into the world. Effective treatment works a bit like yoga - stretching into new activities that are a bit uncomfortable, but not overwhelming, and as you gradually stretch yourself you get better and better at handling new challenges.
3185671 tn?1344782780 They are tapered too quickly, dosage dropped too rapidly. I can say that I saw a lot of patients succeed at coming off subs at that clinic. Just like any other med...there will always be the horror stories...it's important for people to allow themselves to have their own experience. Ironically too, some of the biggest anti-sub preachers are people who have NO experience with it, either personally, or exposure to it from other people.
Avatar f tn I think his doctor is on top of it because she plans to start him on a lower dosage of Ribavirin and increase it in increments. He has been through hell these three years and I am praying that he will see SVR with this treatment and be able to address his other complications without Hep C taunting him/us any more. Your prayers and good thoughts on his behalf (and everyone in similar circumstance) for a successful treatment will mean so much everyone. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I've been prescribed Zoloft in the past for panic attacks, but it never worked as well as painkillers did. There was no euphoria with Zoloft, and it made my panic attacks MUCH worse, so I quit it immediately and switched to Percocet and Lortab 10s, though not LEGALLY of course. When I first discovered Percocet, I felt it was the perfect drug to take in place of my old marijuana habit, which I kicked in Dec.
