Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Ok to take losartan and zoloft together before bed? (2 answers)
I've been on Losartan for a year without any problem. Six weeks ago I started on 25mg of Zoloft for general anxiety. All of a sudden during cardio exercise I feel lightheadedness and a feeling like I could pass out! I stop for a moment and then I feel ok. Is this normal? I thought I'd be getting more used to it after 6 weeks, but this is something new so I figured that it is now in my body and fatigue is normal. Or perhaps taking bp meds and Zoloft might be the cause.
- Does the thymus affect dysthymia
joy of living is imparted to the child by the bonding process. the thymus helps in developing antibodies and setting up the immune system and its function lessens through puberty until it effectively atrophies at maturity. my thesis is that a lack of bonding interferes with the action of the thymus leading to dysthymia (Greek for bad state of mind), elsewhere described as 'chronic discontent
- 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.
- Can qysmia and garcinia cambogia be taken together
I just want to know if taking both drugs will be beneficial to my weight loss
- In testing zoloft if it causes galactorrhea (nipple discharge), how many in the group study were boys from age 12 -15? what were the sexes of the two that tested positive?

- Fluoxetine with hypnagogic hallucinations
Was taking fluoxetine until recently for a depressive episode (suffered from depression pretty much my whole life). Strange hypnagogic hallucinations and bizarre thoughts, sometimes coupled with feeling faint. Also strong feelings of numbness for the first two weeks or so, headaches and dry mouth. Strangely only on 20mg...This is my second time on fluoxetine and the experience has been totally different (last time it seemed to make me act callously and superficially towards people, and to be generally irresponsible, going out, avoiding work etc.).
Doctor had now changed me over to sertraline, been on it for 3 days and ok so far apart from minor headaches.
- 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.

From this study (11 months ago):
I find myself sexually excited a lot more, but am unable to do anything about it as i can not reach orgasm as i used to. This is getting frustrating
From this study (12 months ago):
I was on 50mg for a year & went up to 100mg. My sex drive became non-existant & the slightest thing sent me into a complete rage. I yell, scream, cuss, & say most horrible things to people I love. I feel the room spin and lose complete control. I have become physically agressive with my boyfriend. I've never punched or slapped him but I once tried to flip a mattress he was sleeping on. Several times after I've calmed down he has told me he feels like in my fits of anger I will hit him. He has also mentioned being concerned I may seriously injure him. I admit that during some of my outbursts I have wanted to slap him but Never has it gone to the point I've wanted to kill him! Just physically hurt him. I remember having the thought of kicking or some how hitting his broken ankle. This is NOT like me. I love this man VERY much & hate the thought of hurting him in any way. I remember shortly after beginning Zoloft getting angry but as time has gone on the anger has turned to rage and much more often. I go from calm to complete rage, there is no in between. In the last 9 months of being on Zoloft my boyfriend and I have had sex MAYBE 5 times. In January of this year my doctor changed me to Wellbutrin. Within 2 weeks of changing (durting the half Zoloft half Wellbutrin week) my sex drive began to return. Unfortunately the rage has continued. It led to the end of my relationship. About being on Wellbutrin only for a week I had the worse outburst yet. I cussed my him & accused him of physically abusing my dog. I said some of the most horrible things to him about our sex life. I cannot help but believe Zoloft was the cause of these anger issues.
