... Yes, withdrawing from Effexor can be rougher than from the other antidepressants. That can be mitigated a bit by first switching to Zoloft or another antidepressant before tapering. Have you tried several other antidepressants before trying Effexor? ... (3 replies)
... I knew I couldn't pay attention when I was little but I thought it was normal. I took Zoloft and Wellbutrin in high school and they helped but now that I have to pay for my own insurance, I can't really afford them. ... (3 replies)
... Rintin - It's nice to see someone with all the same things as me. I have OCD for which I take Zoloft, Bipolar I also take Abilify, but I also have general anxiety disorder and have Ativan when needed. It sucks being on so much medication but if it helps me live a fairly "normal" life then I'm willing to do it. So far so good with the Vyvanse. My doc is upping my dosage to... (15 replies)

... etty bad. I'm always thinking about everything else instead of the task at hand. I've always thought to have depression growing up so I've been put on prozac and zoloft for a few years. But I've wondered do normal people always have so many thoughts flowing through their heads. I fold under pressure like no other. ... (3 replies)

Just be very careful on what is prescribed for her. my son has tried Strattera and Concerta, they seemed to work in the beginning, but it was like he got immune to them. then,... (3 replies)
... Addprogramer....thanks for your very informative post. Like Frazzled, I would like to educate myself about the varying meds so that IF the doctor diagnosis our daughter we will be well informed as parents to make a final decision with him. We have an evaluation set for July 20th for my 18 year old daughter and since we are somewhat concerned about her susceptibility to... (31 replies)
... I have enjoyed reading much of this thread. Id love to respond to each response individually. If I tasted the tears streamed down my face while reading this thread, they would have tasted quite bitter sweet, because I was happy to see others share my same experiences, but also saddened, because the experiences are not ones I envy. I believe your post, Lee, was... (25 replies)
... awesome. thanks. Well I was on depression medication for god only knows. I'm generally not a depressed person never have been. I was on welbutrin, zoloft, just about everything known to man now I'm on nothing so looks like I'm gonna have to go back to something. (6 replies)

... Hi, I'm 19 and for about a year and a 1/2 I've been diagnosed with severe depression, bipolar, insomnia, binge eatting due to depression and ADD.

... in school AT ALL! He started on Concerta a week ago Friday, we did have to go back to doc. this past week, she started him on 50mg of Zoloft a day, the Concerta is only 27mg. His attitude and temper seems to be much better. ... (8 replies)
... Angel, The first thing that I'd want to do if he were my son is try taking him off the Zoloft. It could very well be making him manic (which would make him more hyper, more agitated, and worsen his insomnia). I'd also want to take him off the stimulants until his agitation improved. Then, I'd want to gradually try it again. Don't do any of this on your own. These are... (5 replies)
... Hi, my son is 8 and has ADHD, OCD, and tourettes. He is currently taking Zoloft for OCD and anxiety, Remeron to sleep and Ritalin. The problem is, we have tried Dexedrine, Focalin, and Ritalin twice and nothing seems to work! ... (5 replies)
... Hi Ravyla, Sorry to hear you've been on a diagnostic merry-go-round. As Jrona has pointed out, your meds in & of themselves, are not helpful for attentional difficulties. Many psychiatrists follow a standard flowchart (or 'algorithm') to try to determine which meds will work. If you've been there, done that, IMO your time & money will probably not be well-spent repeating... (5 replies)
... The more I read up on ADD, the more perfectly ALL of my symptoms fit it to a T! I have brought up the possibility of ADD with several of my doctors/psychiatrists/ therapists/ phsychologists in the past, and all 3 times, it was pretty much ignored entirely, dispite the fact that it fit MUCH better, and in ALL aspects, than what they had already diagnosed me with! I have been... (5 replies)
... Discontinuation syndrome is a euphemism for withdrawal. Many Effexor users complain that when they stop taking it, they feel bad -"electric shock" sensations, dizziness, headache, fatigue, anxiety, etc, etc. Many psychiatrists will manage this at the time by switching to a different antidepressant (like Zoloft) that is easier to come off of. It can also be managed by... (7 replies)
... hey........ my son is also like that in school, although he does stay in his seat........he distracts everyone! And too.........it's an argument to go to bed at nite and an argument to get up in the morning. Tv and everything off @ 10p, but i usually have to go in and turn it off, as he wants to stay up "just a little longer". But........i turn off the tv, and within... (5 replies)
