Celexa

Celexa

My Dr took me off these after being on them for over 5 years. Worked very well but he told me a new study indicated it was dangerous for me due to heart problems... now I'm not sure what to do. Very depressed again. But I don't want to take seroquel and that's the only one the Dr seemed to want to give me. Is there no other options? Paxil and effexor were no good.

Anyone Ever Switched From Fluoxetine (brand Name Prozac) To Bupropion (name Brand Wellbutrin)?

Anyone Ever Switched From Fluoxetine (brand Name Prozac) To Bupropion (name Brand Wellbutrin)?

I've been on Fluoxetine for 3 years (in conjunction with Wellbutrin for about a year and a half), and it's worked well for me. I was depressed to the point of daily, frequent suicidal thoughts, and over time the meds I've taken have helped me reach a point where I rarely have a suicidal thought, ever.

However, now that I'm feeling emotionally better, the sexual side effects (in addition to others) of Fluoxetine have been… read more

Has Anyone Experienced “zaps” When Not Withdrawing From Medication?

Has Anyone Experienced “zaps” When Not Withdrawing From Medication?

I am on Effexor and Wellbutrin. I used to get them when I was tired but my dr added Seroquel to the mix. Now I’m getting them all the time and I feel them in my upper body (chest area) not just my head. I am also experiencing dyspnea (can’t take a deep breath). I was on anti anxiety meds like Clonazepam but had adverse side effects from two different ones.

Why Is It That My Psychiatrist Does No Not Want To Prescribe Me ATIVAN?

I attend treatment at Gandara Center in Springfield. Dr. Renee Simone told me that I should find another provider since she was not going to prescribe me any anxiety pills. Ok she has her reasons no to prescribe BENZOS, but what about ATIVAN?
Trazadome I got to help me sleep,but without Ativan, I am still in pain,anxy, bad mood, etc
