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 remeron cause dry skin
I have very dry skin which is exacerbated by mirtazapine. What are the best ways to prevent this symptom, or treat it while taking this drug, also known as remeron?
- Is glaucoma or other vision issues a risk of mirtazapine?
I have had a large cup to disc ratio for about 10 years which my ophthalmologist has been watching every 6-12 months. I had a suspected TIA 1 1/2 yrs ago. I've been on Nexium for more than 10 years.

- 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!
- Low potasium and mood
While being treated for cancer about 3 years ago and thus taking a number of blood tests, I was diagnosed with low potassium level and prescribed a regular dosage. I had noticed that when I forgot to take my potassium pills, I soon began to feel more depressed than usual and to feel anxious. Taking the ills soon alleviated these symptoms. (I have had depression for most of my life but long ago decided against taking any of the anti-depression Rx pills because I disliked their side effects, especially on my ability to think clearly.) Very recently I finally got around to looking on the Internet to see whether low potassium was associated with mood disorders _ and I found that it was. This site apparently didn't study anyone my age (I'm 78), so I decided to offer these comments. I have at least one grandchild who has been formally diagnosed with depression, and one who is ADHD. Before finding that the relationship of mood and low potassium was formally known, I had suggested to their parent in a low-key way that perhaps she and they should check with their doctors about their potassium levels. Now I'm quite sure that is something they and their doctors should consider. Meanwhile, I am glad to have found formal study of what had been to me only an anecdotal kind of belief that the two were linked. More importantly, in all my years of doctor visits, no doctor and no psychologist has ever mentioned this link to me. Therefore, I hope that somehow this link is brought more to the forefront of medical attention.
