Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Has anyone been helped by taking lexapro and wellbutrin? (1 answer)
    I am the mom of a 22 year old who is trying to get through college and can't seem to find the right meds for depression. She is taking Lexapro and I am wondering if adding Wellbutrin will help.
  • Can my eye twitch be because of lexapro?
    So I have had symptoms of anxiety and depression due to a lot of stressors and disasters that happened in my life over the past two years. As my anxiety got worse after a breast biopsy, I started freaking out and thinking I may have MS because my sister has MS. So I went to my GP and she decided my symptoms do not follow the symptoms of MS or any similar problem and it should most likely be anxiety. She put me on Lexapro and Clonazepam. At first I was very hesitant to take medication but as my symptoms got worse I decided to give it a try. I was on Lexopro 5 mg for about two months and then I went to 10 mg, and I would take 1 or 2 Clonazepam a day. And this all started 5 months ago. And things seemed to be working just fine.Until about two months ago I started having this freaking annoying eye twitch on my upper left eyelid. I have had eye twitches before but they always go away after a couple of days or a week top. This one has been lasting for 2 months now and seems to be just getting worse. I went to the GP and my eye doctor and they still found no cause and said it's probably stress and anxiety. I have not been overly stressed and I get plenty of sleep, 10 hrs or more! and I stopped taking caffeine and alcohol after the twitch started. Any idea? Could it be because of medication? I also need to add I have had thumb twitching and severe spasms in my muscles around my right thumb starting in May (before taking any medication).
  • Can amphotericin make nexavar less effective?
    Our son failed to achieve remission after the inducation and then subsequent consolidation phases of treatment for AML The second attempt failed as well. Since then he began to take Nexavar 200mg X 2 BID for the flt3 gene mutation and experienced dramatic results immediately. Blasts cells dropped to less than .1 from 40% and white blood cells from over 50 to .3. At the same time that he began this drug though he also began to take Amphotericin for a fungal infection in his lungs. At present, two weeks later, we are starting to see a gradual increase in his wbc level as well as the blast cells (.2 to .6 levels) again. Hence the question over whether the Amphotericin is affecting the effectiveness of the Nexavar.
  • My mom is 88. she takes lexapro in the evening. she wakes up hallucinating. it's starting to get to her. what should i try for her?
    My mom has been taking Lexapro for about 2 1/2 to 3 months. She was taking it in the morning and her therapist felt it was making her drowsy. I began giving it to her before bed, and I believe that is when she started waking up during the night with hallucinations. I'm not sure if they are vivid dreams that carry over when she awakens, or if she wakes up and sees visions. I do not want to change her meds, if possible. This combination of Aricept, Namenda and Lexapro have allowed her to be sharper mentally than she has in a number of years. Except for the hallucinations, it's been nothing short of amazing. Please help. Thank you
  • Has anybody who is on cipralex or lexapro been diagnosed with pancreatic cyst❓

  • Escitalopram /narcolepsy
    Began taking escitalopram one month ago. Having narcoleptic type sleep incidents as well as unwanted suicidal thoughts. Legs and arms also go out. Sleeping up to thirteen or more hours per day.
  • Lexapro and memory loss
    I actually have no idea what other medicine I was on the week I took Lexapro, it was back at the end of February 2014 right before I checked myself into the psych hospital. I formed no memory for a whole week just because of one drug! My friends and family tell me what happened that week and I have called them a liar because there is no recall from that week! I have been on psychiatric drugs for over 14 years and have never had such a horrible reaction as I did with Lexapro! The side effects do not include this reaction, but I didn't sleep at all that week or so I am told and there is just nothing, not even a little memory. Take this as you will I am not saying everyone gets this side effect I am just saying it is not impossible. I learned a lesson I don't remember, but will never take Lexapro again! It was dangerous for me!
  • Patients having false positives while on remeron
    I have had a few patients complain they are failing drug tests for Amphetamines while on remeron, and have claimed to have not used any type of Amphetamine or any (Mixed Salts). These patients are all or were on probation, parole, or under some stipulation. Iv realized most of these patients are taking another psych med. The list consists of insomnia meds such as Ambien(zolpidem), Sonata(zaleplon),Lunesta(eszopiclone). Also the Anti-Depressants Lexapro (escitalopram)and Prozac (fluoxetine). One of my patients was on Diazepam (Valium). I have switched medicines, particularly the Ambien, Lexapro, and Prozac have reversed the false negative. I prescribe many of my patients remeron. I'm a big believer in its effects on my patients moods and everyday depression. I have heard this happening before, but this was the first time I have ever had this happen to one of my own patients.(These were 5 separate patients in the span of 16 months) Of course none of these patients were criminalized based on lab results, but the issue still lies there. I know this is common for a lot of script meds to give false positives for narcotics. This is just obviously one I am putting out there. Let me know if anyone has experienced something similar.
  • Yes, lexapro does cause tinnitus! (1 response)
    Whenever I forget to take my Lexapro in the morning, I get a high pitched ringing in my ears which starts around 1:00 pm, which won't go away until a few hours after I take the drug. Once I was out of the medication and I almost screamed because the ringing got so bad! I don't think it is as "rare" in the listed side effects as the manufacturer states.
  • Lithium constipation and tremor
    After taking Lithium Carb for about three months, I realize I've been moderately constipated for several weeks. I also have been nauseous and suddenly realize that it's probably related to the nausea and maybe the cause of it.
