- What should i expect taking zoloft and hydroxyzine? (1 answer)
I take 25mg Zoloft for one more day and bump up to 50 mg. I also take 25mg Hydroxyzine Pamoate 3 times per day as needed. I've been on these for a week and feel worse than when I wasn't. My depressive state seems to be getting worse and the anxiety is through the roof. My home is where I felt OK but now I hate it. My skin is crawling and I feel like I want to tear it off and crawl out. Is this a normal side effect of these drugs? I am also diabetic and take several meds for that, don't know if that makes a difference.
- What's the cause of heart palpitations
E-fib or irregular heart beat, more noticeable at night. Have been on hormone replacement since 1995. Started on the patch that caused irritations then switch to 1% Androgel packets. Used 1/2 a packet per day for years, then libido dropped and started using full packet. Everything going good until I started using 25mgs of zinc some months later I started having heart palpitations.
Stopped androgel and zinc, heart palpitations stopped after 2 weeks, almost afraid to start up again!

- Pain in top & back of head after using vistrial
I took hydroxyzine for 1 week & had the worst headache. The pain was in the forehead, top & back of head. There was a lot of pressure too. I was afraid of a bloodclot forming so I didn't take anymore. I didn't know this drug was an antihistimine but I cannot take this type of drug.
- My ex-boyfriend's effexor effects (1 response)
In my fifth year of living with my ex-boyfriend, he began taking Effexor and soon developed urinary incontinence, kidney failure and nightmares or night terrors so severe that he frequently screamed for prolonged periods, flailed and threw punches in his sleep. Upon ceasing to take Effexor, his sleep returned to normal. His kidneys also recovered, and he regained the ability to control urination. About a year after that, he was arrested for downloading child pornography, and I haven't spoken to him since. I'm not suggesting that Effexor caused him to become a pedophile, but it has been noted to produce personality changes in some users. It would be hard to ascertain whether any or all of these side effects resulted from the drug, but I would NEVER take it or allow anyone I cared about to do so. He had never exhibited any such symptoms before taking it, and I feel it ruined his life on many levels.
- Eczema and birth control
I have never had eczema in my life. A few years ago, in March/April 2012, I began taking birth control (Caziant) for the first time. About a month or two later, I noticed a red patch of skin on my armpit that wouldn't stop itching. I was given different types of fungal creams and corticosteriod creams and they only made it worse. Then, it started spreading to my arms, hands, pelvic, and breasts.
I was told by doctors and dermatologists that it is eczema and allergies. Had an allergy test done and took out products I was allergic to from my diet and products. I was given singular for the allergies and hydroxyzine for the itching but I still feel itchy and scratch all the time.
I have been vegan for 10 years, recently gluten free because of a slight allergy, I eat healthy, I stay away from everything I'm allergic to as much as possible, I wash with African black soap and moisturize 2-4 times daily with coco butter and coconut oil, I do not use perfume, I use fragrance free laundry soap and wear gloves when washing dishes. I am doing everything that is suggested but my eczema is only getting worse and spreading to my legs, neck, and face. It is so painful.
The only thing I can think of is it being correlated to birth control. I have decided to stop taking the pill and hope that it may clear up and go back to how my skin was before taking the pill.
- I got really horrible tremors.
I had severe almost convulsing tremors, I made myself throw up the medication and the tremors subsided. My body feels really sore from the intensity of the tremors but I feel a lot better. I won't continue taking this medication, it was a nightmare.
