Zoloft drug interactions

Common Questions and Answers about Zoloft drug interactions


Avatar f tn Google "drug interactions checker" and put in your meds. And Paxilled is right, do NOT quit Zoloft cold turkey. Talk with your doc.
Avatar n tn Marta, Zoloft is a generally well tolerated medication with few adverse effects and drug interactions. Nausea, diarrhea, headache, sexual dysfunction are the most common issues. All side effects tend to improve with time and completely resolve when Zoloft is discontinued. Weight is generally not significantly affected while taking Zoloft. No significant interaction with caffeine is known however, you should minimize it if you have anxiety or insomnia. Hope this was helpful.
962875 tn?1314213636 Certain antidepressants, such as fluoxetine (PROZAC), paroxetine (PAXIL) and bupropion (WELLBUTRIN), could reduce the effect of tamoxifen because they are among the most potent CYP2D6 inhibitors. Why are drug interactions a problem for tamoxifen? Tamoxifen is a "prodrug," which means that the drug molecules in the medication itself are inactive; they must be transformed by the body to the active molecules that actually produce the beneficial effects.
Avatar n tn 1mg tablet twice a day for hypertension and would like to know the side effects and the drug interactions with tenormin (100mg daily) and zestril (40mg daily). If my symptoms get to bothersome can I just stop taking the catapres slowly and try another med? Thank you.
Avatar m tn while I've felt a bit of a difference in both my depression and anxiety, I still worry about a few things. one being drug interactions. I've asked my doctor and pharmacist a couple questions but i'm still hesitant about a couple things. 1. is it ok to drink chamomile tea while on Zoloft? 2. are pain relief meds like ibuprofen and acetaminophen ok to take while on Zoloft? my third question doesn't exactly have to do with Zoloft but it is part of my anxiety.

Avatar n tn He just started a Rx of Zoloft (starter dose) to treat his depression. I am curious about drug interaction and his MG. The Psy. doc wants to give him Serequel to treat what she sees as major psychosis. I disagreed with her strongly based on the possible drug interaction with his MG and based on 3 months of observations. Child also has truancy issues due to missing school due to being "to groggy in the morning to get up.
Avatar n tn Yes the best place is to call at the pharmacy regarding interactions. You can also check on this websites for more details if you feel like the pharmacist haven't told you enough details or if you want to check yourself before you call. Personally I have several doctors/pharmacists applications on my iPhones (Epocrates, Skyscape, PEPID) I usually check interactions with Epocrates. Here is the website you can use if you don't have a iPhone - https://online.epocrates.
266195 tn?1215314011 It is very common to be prescribed a benzo like Xanax along with an SSRI. While there are some interactions, remember that most interactions occur with many medications. It is especially common to use a benzo while you are starting an SSRI and then start to taper off as the SSRI 'kicks in.' I agree with the people here; just express your concerns with your doctor and another great resource is your pharmacist who fills your prescriptions.
190885 tn?1333029491 Depending on which triple therapy drug you are on, there can be interactions with the ADs and it can reduce its efficacy. Go this site to see possible interactions: http://www.hep-druginteractions.org/interactions.aspx But as many above have stated, talk to your doc before you start self-prescribing.
Avatar f tn I would really watch it man,if you are going to take the 2 together take only a 1/4 pill of the zoloft and wait a few hours to see how you feel,I have had several seizures and a near death expierience mixing other drugs with tramadol and I am a heavy duty drug user but tram is a different ballgame,if zoloft wants to take you one way and the tram in another you could die,this is no joke,and the big problem is that they really don't know how to counteract tramadol in the er,they will just make you
Avatar n tn not all drug interactions are known or reported in the literature, and new drug interactions are continually being reported. This information is provided only for your education and for you to discuss with your personal healthcare provider.) AMIODARONE HYDROCHLORIDE (in Amiodarone Oral) may interact with PHENYTOIN (in Dilantin) The combination of these two medicines may have an effect on the amount of both drugs in the body.
Avatar f tn This INCLUDES a drug database that will give you both user posts about drugs as well as the medical information about the drug. A great way to get quick answers about therapeutic effect, side effects, interactions, etc. One of the profile categories is your mood, which you may change anytime you like. Along the right side of your screen is a section of Recent Activity, which not only alerts you to new posts, but new ANYTHING, including journal entries and mood.
Avatar f tn You are correct about there the MAJOR drug interaction between tramadol and sertraline (Zoloft). Please note that there are several moderate drug interactions with your medications, for example, sertraline (Zoloft), pregabalin (Lyrica), clonidine, and methocarbamol (Robaxin) all can increase side effects such dizziness, drowsiness, and impaired thinking and judgment when taken together. It would be a good idea to review your medication regimen with your provider and pharmacist.
Avatar f tn I'm now wondering if I experienced a dangerous drug reaction when combining Zoloft and Nexium or Prilosec. Does anyone know of this?
Avatar n tn I was not at all fond of the ritalin and stopped it almost immediately, but continued the zoloft (increasing to 100mg) The zoloft had a positive effect on my social interactions, I was more outgoing, more able to stand up for myself, in general no longer paralyzed by 'what people thought of me.' When I started to develop a slight apathy, and weight gain related to that apathy, I was reduced to 50mg zoloft.
Avatar f tn That makes me feel better. Thank you. When he said that Paxil was sedating but then mentioned the side effects (possible drug interactions, not so good on the liver & excessive weight gain) I chose the Lex. Did you have any start up side effects? I plan to start it tomorrow night. =) How have you been?
Avatar f tn hey everyone! im new to the site and new to panic disorder. i was given 100 mg of zoloft and .5 mg of klonopin. i take the zoloft at night along with 1/2 of the klonopin and then the other 1/2 in the morning. today is day 5. i feel more anxious then before, jittery, moody, and just not myself. i know it takes awhile for the zoloft to kick in but i though thats what the klonopin was suppose to help with?
Avatar n tn I have been on Zoloft 50 mg for the past year due to post partum depression. Recently, I have been feeling less than competent. Assuming it was time to starting weaning from the Zoloft, I cut my dose on half and have been taking 25 mg for the past 3-4 days. Since then I've been either unmotivated to get do anything or "bouncing off the walls". I feel very overwhelmed and incompetent. I feel as if everything is urgent, nothing can wait.
Avatar m tn Does anyone know anything about drug enduced dementia from morphine sulfate? My father has been on it since 1990 and takes cymbalta,zoloft for the depression side effects and just is OUT of it alot. He will sit down and just fall asleep. he falls asleep while eating dinner and even standing up talking he dozes off. I know alot of it is the meds make him tired and (he's 64) just normal aging, but, what are the symptoms of drug enduced dementia? He also like... hallucinates.....
Avatar m tn hi i was in the process of switching from zoloft to effexor due to the fact the zoloft doesnt help as it did before. but im confused, my new psych dr recomended i try taking both for at least a month TOGETHER. and im scared of this i see right here on this site it says theres possibly severe interactions to combing these?? i mentioned this to him and he seemed to brush that off or not agree??? help.
Avatar n tn According to standard medical information, there should be no problem, but you never know, so try to find a site that deals specifically with drug-drug interactions to make sure this won't be a problem.
