733983 tn?1232330907 eventually it got real bad I was oding on klonipin and eventually even started taking up to 10 zoloft at a time. Fri. till this morning was just a pill spree, and i was so shaky i had to tell someone. i was treated for severe overdose at the er this am.
497348 tn?1283439666 Before that I was put on Zoloft to control my anxiety and dizziness... I have been taking a lower dose of thyroid hormone to hopefully get my levels in normal range. But I have been taking Zoloft with everything... Is this common for me to expereince anxiety and this weird lightheadedness all the time!!!
Avatar n tn But more importantly, you need to tell him what the zoloft is doing to you. That is a side effect that would indicate an overdose and the dose needs to be changed or at the least the time of the dose. Long story short, I can give you all kinds of links about ADD and what it does to people. But, you need to start taking control of your life. Call your doctor.
Avatar n tn 's to Klonopin. Dr. said Klonopin was a better drug to be on. I tried Zoloft, to replace the Serzone, but it increased the anxiety. I'm not taking anything to replace the Serzone or Zoloft at this time. I have had endoscopy, CT scan, blood work, etc.--all normal. I was treated for Heliobacteria and blood in stool. Could this be due to a physical problem or is it the anxiety? I have also had upper chest pain and very high blood pressure (220/121) and 127 heart rate since changing med.'s.
Avatar m tn For example, you can develop this syndrome if you take migraine medicines called triptans together with antidepressants called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and selective serotonin/norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SSNRIs). Popular SSRI's include Celexa, Zoloft, Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, and Lexapro. SNRI's include Cymbalta and Effexor. Brand names of triptans include Imitrex, Zomig, Frova, Maxalt, Axert, Amerge, and Relpax.
Avatar n tn I have anxiety/panic/OCD and borderline hypocondriac since seeing my grandmother pass away 5 yrs. ago due to Ovarian cancer. I have been on Paxil, Zoloft and Effexor but discontinued use due to weight gain and dry mouth. I gained 35 pounds in under a year and I wasn't even eating differently. My general PCP put me on Buspar last September, twice a day totaling 15 mg. Well I was doing fine on that up until 3 weeks ago. So Friday, she upped me to 30 mg.
Avatar n tn I am currently on 60 mg of Prozac, 300 of Wellbutrin, and 1mg of Clonazepam at night. There's still an immense amount of static in my head, even though I've come very far. Now I'm wondering if at the core of all of this is ADD, because I've read that it's common for those suffering ADD to develop mood disorders. My parents and doctors think I smoke too much pot, but it balances everything else, and I know this static and disorganization is in my head, it's not pot.
Avatar f tn naloxone) only partially reverse its effects. This means that an overdose of buprenorphine cannot be easily reversed. In the US Subutex has been approved by the FDA for the treatment and control of chronic moderate to severe pain. If you are using it for treatment of addiction, it was not supposed to be a maintenance medication. The goal of it was to taper that addict relatively quickly, over several months, off of the medication completely.
Avatar m tn There are large amounts of B vitamins in these drinks and vitamin overdose is a risk. However vitamin overdose isn't going to do what TheMjP above said was happening to him. https://smartypantsvitamins.com/the-overdose-risks-of-vitamins-why-proper-dosage-matters/ " a vitamin B6 overdose can lead to nerve toxicity, while B3 can lead to nausea, jaundice, and liver toxicity. Too much folic acid, too, can mask the symptoms of a B12 deficiency. So how much is too much?
Avatar m tn I've been working with a psychiatrist to find the right antidepressant. She had me stop Lexapro 30mg cold turkey and start Zoloft 100mg immediately. Its been a tough two weeks and I am having really bad morning anxiety. Does anyone else experience and is there anything I can do to ease it? Thank you.
544292 tn?1268886268 I have been sore thru the lower back today, and not my leg as much. I got thru my work day by having a tiny amount of honey to get me moving. A shower with Batherapy lavender helped me move. I woke up not happy, and had a dream that was weird, but not bloody like early withdrawal. OK, I dreamed someone was asking me to stop being mean and unkind to Tara Reid ... LOL!! I woke up last night at 4 am in back pain and had to get ice.
Avatar m tn ok hope it is useful. I have an anxiety/panic disorder myself and I am on 50mg Zoloft per day. This exact same thing happened to me whenever I took Whey Protein, concentrate or isolate. I wrote a thread about this last summer and everyone called me crazy, but I knew what it was stemming from so I stopped taking Whey altogether. I got very depressed because I figured, how can I get big and strong and meet my goals if I can't use whey to grow.
Avatar n tn remember not an expert but i do pride myself on having a considerable amount of common sense. Here's a little story...(short version). Woke up in the morning and for oh, i'd say the 100'th maybe th0000nth time in my life i swallowed the adderall then the lexipro the hit the bowl (let me just say that i don't encourage this AT ALL, this is no longer my life). with MY BODY i don't recall showing any symptoms of withrawl and buring skin or dizziness.
Avatar n tn I have had anxiety for about 4 years, and i can safely tell you that it really really takes it's toll on me both emotionally and physically. I was on zoloft for about a year which seemed to help mildly, but now im getting off of them and the anxiety seems to be coming back. I have all sort of physical symptoms like tight muscles, tingling in fingers in both hands, heart palpitations, you name it, ive dealt with it.
Avatar m tn I take 200mgs of zoloft daily. i started taking more and more of the morphine and when i would run out....well i could always get more if i wanted it. But when i had worked my way up to taking 800mgs all at one time. twice daily i decided i was really doing wrong. I had a turn of bad luck and had to go from 800mgs twice daily on thursday to 30mgs twice daily on the following Friday. Needless to say it was very ujnpleasant but i wanted to quit so i just suffered it.
Avatar n tn i guess i've been off it for about a month and a half now. Since then, i've improved a fair amount. i don't think i have any of the symptoms of seritonin toxicity you described, or at least not many. Right now, i just have alot of fear. My heart races afair amount of the day. Especially when i wake up. i have been taking xanax (.25 mg 4 times per day) and it takes a slight edge off but it's no total relief. i'm afraid to take much more, as that i know it can lead to addiction.
Avatar n tn The correct dosage of magnesium is different for each person and can be anywhere between 200mg-1000mg a day. It's difficult to overdose on magnesium, but too much magnesium can cause diarrhea (which exacerbates the deficiency) so start with a low dose and work up. Vitamin B-6 can be toxic in high doses, so don't take more than the recommend amount if you decide to try a b-6 supplement.
Avatar n tn The first thing you have to do is stop, because it is more likely you had an overdose reaction initially because of the cocaine, and you are suffering from a reoccurance phenomenon. No, you don't have permanent brain damage, but you do now have an extremely sensitive brain to exogenous chemicals, and you will have to be very careful what you use from now on, and should probably avoid pot for a long time.
Avatar n tn 25 made me sick as hell for 3 days and the doctor put me on zoloft for depression, just remember you may be really badly hurting, but overdosing will only spread the hurt and make it worse.
Avatar n tn That's why overdose is so prevalent in pill takers... our tolerance weakens and then we take what we used to or slightly less and it's too much for our bodies. Maybe you should stop taking them and consider this a gift and a warning sign.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure if that makes much sense to you - but again, it seems your doctor has put you on an excessive amount of medication that may put a fog over the REAL you.
Avatar m tn I probably should consider taking the SSRIs (Sertraline or Zoloft btw.) but I just can't see in what way it could help with weird heart-beating during, after exercise etc.
199177 tn?1490502134 I have tried to cut down on my zoloft,every time I do I end up suicidal,is zoloft considered mind altering,it does not affect me like alcohol and opiates did,and my doctor has told me not to stop taking the zoloft.So what do you do.
Avatar m tn The smaller number shows the amount of vicodin. It sounds like you might be onthe 7.5 vicodin. It also sounds like you are right at that turning point where use is starting to show signs of abuse. You are not taking much more than prescribed. I recommend (and im not a dr., just a vike user) that even if you are in a bit of pain, you cut down your use to one pill in the morning and then half and noon and half at night.
3060903 tn?1398568723 The antidepressants most widely prescribed for anxiety are SSRIs such as Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Lexapro, and Celexa. These work by regulating serotonin levels in the brain to elevate mood and have been used to treat panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).
Avatar f tn They are performed at LabCorpse all over the U.S. Right upper quadrant pain and nausea are symptoms of Tylenol overdose. Just because you overdose does not mean your liver will fail and you will die. Dont get me wrong...you very well can! You may be taking yourself right to the edge of it. Tylenol overdose usually affects the body for many days. Often times, the body and liver recovers but there may be one time that it doesn't.
990354 tn?1307136486 , so I went to the doctor and got a script for zoloft to help me. The zoloft helped a lot, but not with my anxiety. Ever since I could remember I have had sever anxiety accompanied with panic attacks. At this point my sister was in the throws of hard core addiction with the roxies, so I would tabble with her everynow and again to help with the anxiety. Soon my sister got really sick and started using heroin, and I lost my best friend.
Avatar f tn It is not an overdose, it is a drug interaction. SSRI and SNRI's are Zoloft, Prozac, Paxil, to name a few, SNRI - Effexor, Cymbalta, Pristiq. Ultram taken at higher doses than prescribed with these can cause Serotonin syndrome which will cause you to pass out. If she says she has a shifting feeling in her head, with any of these drugs, it is definitely Serotonin Syndrome. When you move your eyes they seem to follow later, dry mouth, shifting brain, tired, disoriented somewhat.
5093508 tn?1390547531 Just my luck for this to happen at this time when I'm needing the full amount of valium prescribed, to help me cope with this nightmare of withdrawal from tramadol. Thanks for the advice on only weaning off one at a time, even though the valium taper is an enforced one through the mix-up. it will all be sorted very soon.
