My feet feel cold(sometimes hot) numb & tingle, especially when I sit down & try to relax--------VERY UNCOMFORTABLE
I also have insomnia and take lorazepam------could it cause the feeling in my feet??If so, what is best way to get off lorazepam???
I am in recovery from alcohol and drugs, this year after 10 years of continuous sobriety, I believe that some of the scripts have a side effect of drug seeking behavior, ultimately I want to be narcotic free, and probably need to see a psychiatrist to get the anti psychotic right, worried about taking Paxil, Chantix, Buspar, all help with depression, but is that to much dopamine or serotonin, not sure which one, but couldn't that be too many different anti depressants in a day

My daughter is 20 years old and has been diagnosed with Bipolar, dysthimia, ptsd, narcolepsy and social anxiety. They are treating her with meds that may cause tremors even tho she already suffer from tremors and suicidal ideations. She is currently on buproprion(300mg) seroquel(150mg daily) and vistiral. I am very worried about her and want to know if anyone can tell me if this is a good combination

Please see the documentary by Doctor Gary Null called drugging our children and others. There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance, or side effects, (they are all EFFECTS not to be minimised) it is psuedo-sales pitch to sell the drugs. No psychiatric diagnosis is evidenced by biochemistry tests, xrays or blood results. I saw my doctor and within 5 mins was prescribed Quitiapin and told to be on it indefinately 50+ years. See the DSM Diagnostic and Statistical Manual which shows how psychiatry invents symptoms to make money.

This web-page is funded by a drugs company that is why they want you to offer them your demographics, age gender etc. If there is one other documentary you should see it is entitled MAKING A KILLING-It exposes subliminal tricks and promotion in schools by multi-trillion drug companies. They give your child a psuedo questionnaire pretending to but is a marketing tool to pressure parents or put children in care if they do not have drugs.
