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 wearing on me, and I've been thinking about switching to another… read more
I am bi polar and I take Geodon, Invega, Amitriptyline, Paxil, Hydroxyzine, Lamictal And I am having trouble sleeping. Anyone have any suggestions? I've taken Seraquel, Trazodone and it doesnt work. And I use to take Klonopin and it worked but my new Dr won't prescribe it because it is addictive. Any suggestions are appreciated.
I once lost 48lbs only to gain it back plus some, been trying again, down 20, but been a while since I lost anymore. I have been struggling with depression, anxiety, and sadness, and fear I am just going to end up gaining the weight back.
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
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.
I’m struggling with the decision to start back on an anti depressant. What made me stop last time was the side effects, more specifically the ones that made being intimate wayyy less fun...I want to know if it’s just me? how do you deal with it? I e already tried a handful of different kinds, but are there kinds that don’t cause this specific reaction? Or is it inevitable ?
Hi I've been on different antidepressants for years and am currently on cymbalta/duloxetine. All of them have caused me to put on weight, which causes more depression and not liking myself. I was slim and active before I started these medications. Now I feel too tired to exercise, whereas I used to be active. I've just started a new diet but find the drugs cause carb cravings and increased appetite. How do people deal with this problem? I feel in despair about it as when I come off the… read more
