- The zoloft/vyvanse concoction ruined my life.
I started taking these drugs about two months ago. I am diagnosed ADHD by a psychiatrist. I received these medications from a doctor whom I know and is married to a friend my wife. She, the doctor, gave them to me from her personal medications in a plastic baggy. I was given loose instructions for taking these on a piece of paper. I was never given the paperwork with warning signs. 10 days after starting these medications, I attacked my wife and am now separated. I am barred from seeing her and my daughter by means of a Victims Protective Order. I am a normally nonviolent person. Most who know me call me a peacemaker...a pacifist. I am still horrified by the events of that night. 15 seconds changed my life forever. I hope and pray my story helps others. Don't be naïve, as I was, when given medications. Ask questions.
- Loss of menstruation
I stopped using setralin 50 µg in August 2014. (I have been taken it in 1 year for my PMS). After stopping taking the pills my period become very short in september and then desappeard. I got a funcional cyste (about 30 mm) and after 10-days treatment with progesterone I got my period in the end of oktober. Two weeks afterwards I got a spare bleeding and my gyn thought that it my be an ovulation bleeding. Anyhow I have not got my period yet. The samples taken in oktober showed low FSH and heigt E2. The doctor explained that it is posible that stopping setralin could cause this hormonal imbalance. I must say that my periods were not so regular for very long time like during that year with setralin but I had other side effects like problem with concentartion, nussea etc.
For many years ago I was on Zoloft but I had not experienced the same problem. When I started the treatment this time they did not want to give me zoloft (because of the price). I had no choice but i experienced many symptoms from different generica of Setralin. I will meet my doctor om Monday again.
