was on sertraline, olanzipine and another i cant remember now, but now only on citalopram, started on 10mg which was horrible then upped to 20mg which was ok and upped to 30mg which is making me twitchy, still dry mouth, even harder to sleep and when i do have really odd dreams, brain zapps, confusion and totally couldnt care less and am supposed to go up even higher...emotionally numb and basically useless
:brainfart: mirtazipine was the one i forgot...none of them worked and gave me horrific side effects resulting in more meds and loads of blood work... *sigh* sometimes meds just aren't the fix the docs want them to be so dont
feel down if they dont work, i hate meds for lots of reasons but you have to just work thru the list to get to the one that works for your, so dont give up trying, talk to your doc
Besides my asthma meds I'm supposed to be on Prozac and klonopin but haven't had them for a while. And sometimes trazadone and I was on Zoloft at one point too in an attempt by my doctor to replace the prozac. that didn't work out too well.
i was on zoloft at one stage and it really fucked me up i have bi polar disorder and made me get really bad mania for about a week of no sleep, i had not had a mania eposoide b4 i was put on this i was wondering if anyone else with bi polar disorder has tried this med and had a simlar reaction. i am sure i even have bi polar maybe it was just an adverse reaction of the drug. i wouldnt mind hearing from other bi polar sufferes and this drug
I have been on A LOT of different meds but I am currently on Topiramate 25mg, which is a substitute for Topamax, I'm on Mirtazapine 30mg, which is a substitute for Remeron, and Lexapro 20mg. I don't think they're working very well anymore, but they do help me get to sleep at night which I like.
