Medication Question

Medication Question

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.

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.

When they raised my dose of wellbutrin that happened to me i am now on effexor and am not having them

Effexor

Effexor

Did anyone else do bad on this? I tried to stop once bc it wasn’t helping & the side effects were horrible!!! The only time I could tell I was taking it is if I had missed a dose. This was by far the WORST anti depressant I’ve ever experienced & would never recommend it to anyone!

A MyDepressionTeam Member said:

I have been on Effexor for several years and have no side effects. I must be one of the lucky ones!
