From this study (3 days ago):
Dr prescribed Hydrocodone & Tramadol after my total knee replacement June 3rd. Was able to taper off and stop the hydrocodone but when trying to taper off Tramadol I would feel sick. Got down to less than 50mg a day total by cutting pill in 1/4ths,had been on Tramadol for about 9 weeks now, but suddenly severe panic attacks and anxiety started. So bad I ended up in a mental health hospital for 6 days. Now have to be on antidepressants & Ativan for anxiety. Did not need these before I ever took Tramadol! Will I recover???
From this study (1 week ago):
I was on lithium when first diagnosed with Graves disease-now stopped. I had a few episodes of what is understood to be serotonin syndrome. I had submandibular gland removed 3 years ago. I had bad foot infection (both feet) 3 years ago. I always suffered with depression and anxiety/social always. I was on Effexor 225mg for 3 years now I take 150mg moclobimide twice a day. I stopped Effexor and lithium together when it was supposed that it could have caused serotonin syndrome. Thank you
