  • Caution about remeron!
    As do many folks suffering from fibromyalgia with depression I ended up seeing a psychiatrist; several actually over the years. During my clinical exams in nursing school my anxiety levels were unbearable and my doc changed my AD to Remeron. So what happened? No more anxiety - no emotions at all! My daughter declared, "You're not my mom anymore - I don't know who you are!" I was walking into walls, my eye/hand coordination went wonky, and I didn't care! The only feeling I had was hunger. I gained THIRTY POUNDS IN ONE MONTH! Not trusting my shrink anymore because prescribing this potent drug to a nursing student was beyond negligent I went to my GP for advice. She was shocked and told me she only prescribed Remeron for her endstage cancer patients, mainly to increase their appetite. I was switched to another AD and sailed through my clinical and state board exams.

    Even though we feel powerless and vulnerable when in crisis we have to garner enough energy to get all the facts and question if the medication is really the right choice!
  • Sleep paralysis while on medrol and norco
    On my 5th day of my dose pack about an hour after taking medrol and a norco I experienced sleep paralysis for the first time. This is the 3rd dose pack in 2 months and I just switched back to norco from Ultram the same day I started the latest dose pack. I felt unusually sleepy before taking my bedtime dose, but felt awake shortly after taking it. My sleep habits have been fluctuating due to sciatic pain which is why I am prescribed this medication.
  • Transition from mirtazapine to cymbalta (bipolar ii) 6 week duration taken in conjunction with seroquel, propranalol and implanon
    In early September I approached my Psychiatrist to report that I was having sleep paralysis episodes as well as insatiable appetite. I had put on about 20lb in the space of 6 months since the sleep paralysis started.

    My Psychiatrist opted to wean me off the Mirtazapine and onto Cymbalta. I have now been on 60mg of Cymbalta for about 4 weeks and completely titrated off the Mirtazapine.

    I have noted that since switching to Cymbalta that I no longer have the insatiable appetite, nor have I had any further sleep paralysis episodes (though I have had a brain MRI to rule out any physiological issues - yet to receive results).

    I have noticed that I have had mild to moderate rolling nausea with the Cymbalta and that I now have food aversions. Food does not interest me as much anymore and I find that certain foods (mostly processed snacks) are no longer palatable. I also find that I become full after much smaller meal portions.

    I have found that I can no longer drink wine or spirits because they now taste awful however I can still tolerate certain brands of beer. I also no longer enjoy drinking cola.

    I am also on the Implanon Implant. I have had this implant inserted for about 12 months and my cycles have been rather regular. Since starting the Cymbalta I have had some breakthrough bleeding yet my periods have not been as painful, though they have been heavier and longer.

    My Psychiatrist will commence titrating me off the Seroquel in about two weeks and onto Topamax as it is his belief it will be less sedating than the Seroquel and that it will hopefully help as a mood stabiliser, treat my migraines and allow me to come off the Propranolol. he also hopes that I am able to loose some of the weight gained since the sleep paralysis episodes started.

    As a side note regarding the Propranolol, I have naturally low blood pressure and I find while Propranalol is generally an effective migraine prophylactic, (I do get some breakthrough migraines) it does make my blood pressure even lower which leads to dizziness and faintness when I stand up too quickly from a recumbent position.
  • Heavy sweating during sleep
    Pain killers like Tylenol 3, vicodin 20 years, Valium and Soma 12 years. Sweat heavy during sleep.
  • Seizure patient was on depakote for 16 years now on keppra 1500 mg.
    I am 28 years old and been off depakote for 5 months. I started keppra to control my seizure disorder, which works great. But for the past year I have developed osteoarthritis in my thoracic, si joints, and lumbar. I get alot of muscle hypersensitivity and pain. Can any of this be due to long term effects of seizure meds?
