Anyone ever have strange feelings like crawling skin .. Feels like bugs are crawling across your face and arms?
Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Does hydrocodone cause depession and or anxiety after long term use (2 answers)
I've had to take hydrocodone for about 2 years now. About 7 months ago I started feeling alot of anxiety and irritability and at times very moody? I was wondering if the Hydrocodone can cause this especially after being on them for almost two years now for severe back and neck pain? The first year of taking them I never felt this way but someone told me you can start going through withdrawals even a few hours of being on them cause your system is use to this medication and has built up in our body and needs more of it?? And I don't want to have to increase my dose or change to a stronger med. Has anyone else experienced this?
- I was treated for overactive thyroid with methimazole, thyroid levels now lowered was directed to stop methimazole, have been off methimazole now for 3 weeks, but my blood pressure is still 224/117 (1 answer)
I was recently diagnosed with overactive thyroid, no nodules or cancer, I had all the symptoms that you could have. Heart palpitations, high blood pressure,hand tremors, anxiety, wgt loss, muscle aches, weak legs and diarrhea. I was treated with methimazole for the overactive thyroid and inderal for the heart palpitations, ativan for the anxiety, and clonidine 2-3 times a day if systolic blood pressure is over 180. After 3 weeks my thyroid levels have returned to almost normal and was directed to stop taking methimazole now and to follow up with endocrinologist in 6 wks. My concern is that my blood pressure is still very high 224/117, I had lisinopril 5mg added to my medicine list, but doesn't seem to be helping, I am also taking the as needed clonidine 3-4x a day which doesn't seem to be helping much either. I am wondering if anyone that has had hyperthyroidism with secondary hypertension and was treated with methimazole..if after stopping methimazole continued to have high blood pressure?

- Interactions of rantidine 150 mg & theophylline 200mg taken in am
I started taking 150mg rantidine with 200mg theophylline, and zyrtec in the morning before breakfast. Within 1 hour of taking my medications, even after eating, I found myself overwhelmed with anxiety, restlessness, the inability to think, and the feeling of dread.
I initially started taking rantidine in the evening, an hour before bed time, and found that it did not cause such a strong reaction. I really believe that these medications, when taken together, can really cause an adverse reaction for a person. I mean, it did me.
- Folic acid withdrawal
I took folic acid 5 for more than 2 years after my past abortion, i continue it until 5 days before that i missed to buy it! Every day i feel worth until today that i ate it and after 2 hours i feel dramatically better!
- Are you mental on methadone
My doctor changed my pain medication back in May of 2014 . I was pleased with how well it handle my back pain and was pleased with how inexpensive it was. My husband had been using the same drug with great results. It wasn't until about a month later I started to notice just feelings of sadness. I didn't think too much of it but then I would get such strong feelings of despair really bad that I would just cry. I also started getting a lot of panic attacks I had so much anxiety at times it prevented me from doing things. At one point I really thought I was having some sort of break down, but the feelings would have highs and lows and sometimes I would have a day with out them. Eventually after being on them for 7 months I went to my doctor and asked if it were possible I was experiencing these feelings from the Methadone. He wasn't sure but with it all happening right after I started taking them he decided to put me on something else. It's been about three weeks and even though the feelings are still there they are not as strong and seem to be passing. I hope as time goes I will feel like myself again and hope never to have to experience something like that again.

- Bcaa's and increased anxiety/panic attacks
Six years ago I was hospitalized for severe panic disorder. After months of therapy I was prescribed Paxil and Zanax to control the disorder. I have been an athlete, mixed martial arts and weightlifting for over 20 years. Recently I decided to try BCAAs as a supplement to improve recovery after workouts. Bad idea! Bcaa's are reported to increase focus and can reduce serotonin. Sounds great, unless you have an anxiety disorder. Generally people with anxiety and/or panic disorders have a reduced amount or require more serotonin to maintain normal cognition "Perception".
While taking BCAA's I had three major panic attacks, pinging and shocking in meridian points (symptoms are known as discontinuation syndrome from reducing or stopping SSRN medications that treat anxiety). Long story short...stay away from this rather benign supplement if you have anxiety issues, especially if they are severe!

I have taken Ativan day every day for 30 years and would have been dead without it . You can all read your fancy information but it works for me so do has you like. Why would I want to live a life of acute anxiety when I don't have to ,If you read every side effect on PARACETAMOL you would not take them yet hospital its the top pain killer .Near every mental hospital patient take Ativan in ENGLAND, people don't havea problem on Ativan its when they try to get off you find the problem so why try. I have gone up 4 mg to 6mg in 30 years hardly earth shattering .
Lethe on Jan, 6, 2015:
Benzodiazepines accumulate in the brain over time causing permanent damage to the neurons. When you have to increase the dose to achieve the same effect that is tolerance or addiction. Your brain wants more of the drug. This is the point where you need to taper slowly off this drug. Just check out the side effects with long term use from dementia, falls, cognition and memory problems, lung depression, rage and depression, uncontrollable crying. This drugs are to be taken only 2-4 WEEKS not for years and years. Doctors seem to be ignorant about a highly addictive central nervous system depressant. It depresses you and then you take antidepressants to feel better. Does that make sense to you?
