- Has anyone suffered from muscle spasms/convulsions with increased blood pressure and anxiety when stopping use of melatonin?
(Asked by a 64 year old man who has Panic Disorder, and takes Melatonin, Inderal, Klonopin, Clonidine, Benicar, Doxylamine Succinate)
Was using only 10 mg. daily of Inderal plus 1 mg. synthetic Melatonin 5 nights a week. Stopped the Melatonin in August and have had high blood pressure ever since, with my doc putting me on the other meds listed. Does Doxylamine worsen BP problems? Most importantly, has anyone experienced nighttime convulsions and high Blood Pressure after discontinuing Melatonin?
- I took too much nyquil and my heart rate has raised. how long does this last? (2 answers)
(Asked by a 20 year old woman who has Depressed Mood, Anxiety And Stress, and takes NyQuil, Unisom)
My boyfriend of two years and I broke up. I freak out took quite a bit of nyquil to sleep and also one Unison sleeping pill. This was around six PM. I also hadn't slept AT ALL the night before. Then at ten pm he shows up with friends and family to help him move his stuff out. I freaked out even worse. Crying and having panic attacks and not being able to breathe well. I was up until around 1 am not being able to sleep because of the anxiety and my raised heart rate. I took a very low dose Xanex and finally fell asleep around two am. It's now early morning and my heart rate continues to give me anxiety. I can't sleep, my mind is foggy and I have terrible anxiety. What do i do to help myself? Please help.

I have been taking Doxylamine succinate for about 6 months. I have started having GERD symptoms and my doctor put me on Prilosec which doesn't seem to be helping much. Could the sleep aid be causing the problem? The symptoms of GERD didn't start until about a month ago.

- Doxylamine succinate and severe restless legs and insomnia
(Posted by a 53 year old woman who has Insomnia, Severe Restless Legs, and takes Doxylamine Succinate)
Could not sleep so took 2 doxylamine gel tablets. Got very sleepy but could not actually fall asleep. So I ended up, over the next few hours, taking 3 more. More sleepiness and more restless legs, and still couldn't sleep At All. Up the entire night but couldn't really do anything cause I was so sleepy. Maddening. Do not understand at all.
- Wellbutrin buproprion two suicide attempts
(Posted by a 54 year old woman who has Suicide Attempt, and takes Bupropion Hydrochloride)
Started taking Buproprion and almost immediately had suicide ideation but didn't connect it to the med. Did not want to be here anymore and one week later tried to OD but woke up in the morning. Two weeks later wrote a suicide note to my therapist and again tried to OD. She called the police and they picked me up and took me to the emergency room. Both times I tried to OD on Alcohol and the Buproprion. The first time I took it and just went to bed. The second time I don't remember the note or getting into my car with no shoes and no purse and police pulled me over for the suicidal note to my therapist. They took me to the hospital along with me getting a DUI which I was barely over the alcohol limit.
