stalopam plus medicine
Does Stalopam plus also work as a sleep medicine? If not, how does it help with sleep disorder? ## This medication contains the antidepressant Escitalopram and the benzodiazepine Clonazepam, both of them can cause drowsiness as side effects, so yes, it can help with a sleep disorder, for some people. It also carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause other side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

Will Lexapro show up as Benzo on Urine Screen?
I jut started getting frequent UA's, and keep coming up for BENZO's ... I was on Librium for withdrawl off Xanax about 20 days ago, and Im on 20 mg Lexapro daily. Can the Lexapro be coming up as a BENZO?? One doctor of mine says YES other Dr says NO... HELP!!!!! ## The Xanax itself can continue to show up on a urine test for 6 weeks, after you have stopped taking it, though the exact time can vary slightly, depending on how long you were taking it and how much you were taking. And the Librium can also cause a positive test for Benzodiazepines. But no, the Laxapro is not known to cause false positives, but the fact that you were taking the Xanax and then used Librium may explain the problem. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I was add 6 milligrams of xanax a day for 3...

weight gain lexamil
I was prescribed Lexamil 5mg and I took 1 on the 11.11.2010 before reading the prescription note. I am feeling so overweight, and my bowel movement is totally altered. How long does the effects last? Alternatively how do I reverse this? ## Lexamil contains the active ingredient Escitalopram, it is an antidepressant. Yes, many of them can cause some weight gain, however, taking on pill is not enough to have that effect. It may have caused some bloating and intestinal upset, however, these are normal side effects and should wear off in a few weeks as your body adjusts to the medication. There is also no way to reverse it, other than to just stop taking it for awhile. Have you spoken to your doctor about this? ## I have been on Lexamil for about 18 months now and I struggle terribly with m...

If someone take szetalo 10 mg instead of szetalo plus 10 mg
My grandmother is taking szetalo "plus" 10 mg on a regular basis, but accidently got szetalo 10 mg I'm asking if any side effect will occur or not? ## Hi Vandan, Based on my research, Szetalo contains 10mgs of the antidepressant Escitalopram. The difference is that Szetalo Plus ALSO contains 10mgs of Clonazepam; a Benzodiazepine-class drug used to treat anxiety, panic attacks, and seizures. Depending on how long she's been using Szetalo Plus for, not having the Clonazepam in her system could potentially trigger withdrawal symptoms to occur, if they haven't already. Has your grandmother given you any feedback after trying the regular Szetalo?

Rather than lowering so suddenly by half, usually it's normal to lower it very gradually, while having the person skip doses. What are you taking it to treat? ## Verwon I am taking it for Anxiety and depression. Mainly for depression since I am already taking Klonopin for anxiety.
