Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
I was having a problem with weight gain and went to my Dr. for help she had me on 20mg of Celexa at night and 300mg of Buprpion XL during the day. It really worked for my Anxiety and Depression. I started feeling bad dragging around and went in for blood work I had terribly high triglycerides, high cholesterol, low LDL and high blood pressure things I had never experienced in my life. I eat a very healthy paleo diet and make and can everything from scratch. I don't use any processed foods at all and no coffee, tea or soda. It was very disheartening to have this effect. I have PCOS and these side effects are really a nightmare. I have been off of the meds now for about 6 weeks and have lost 11 of the 38 pounds I gained and everything is back in the normal range. These drugs are not for everyone. I currently take Buspar as needed for anxiety up to 30mg a day I am hoping for better results from this medication.
From this study (6 months ago):
Klonopin & Celexa mix helps but it also causes other issues.
From this study (6 months ago):
I know that methadone can cause nodding. I am way beyond that stage of MMT though. I can admit that at certain points I was a horrible patient! I used everything under the sun to supplement getting high. I've been on doses of 345mgs, 230mgs, Split doses, Liquid, & Tablets. I've been on the dose I'm at now which is a split dose & the lowest dose I have been on, for well over 1 year. I have had clean drug tests I don't use any illegal drugs, I don't drink.
