Gluten Free Antidepressants

Just found out the antidepressant Pristiq has Gluten in it. Can you tell me if there is one that has not ## I'm sorry, but the relevant ingredient information we have is only accurate for medications that are available in the U.S. Have you tried talking to your doctor about it? If you have a gluten allergy, you can also try making your pharmacy/chemist aware of that, so they can check medication ingredients for you. ## My wife has celiac disease (intolerance of gluten products). She may be suffering from depression, too. I'd like to know if there are any anti-depressants that are gluten-free, that is, safe for celiac patients to use. ...

Tikosyn and anti-depressants

What's an effective combination as SSRIs are contra-indicated? Bupropion just isn't efficacious. Anyone have any experience with other drugs and what are they? ## Hello, Sdarcy! How are you? I've been searching, but so far, everything I've found and checked is contraindicated with the Tikosyn. Did your doctor suggest anything else you can try? I even researched some of the antipsychotics. Tikosyn is listed by the FDA as being used to treat irregular heartbeat and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and cough. Does anyone else know of anything? ...

Antidepressants and alcohol use
1 Reply RSS
The fact that you guys are even thinking about mixing alcohol with antidepressants tells me you are not serious about controlling your depression. Alcohol is a depressant! Taking anti depressants and drinking is like giving a hemophiliac an aspirin to thin their blood. Makes no sense at all. If you guys really want to get better then get serious and pay attention to the warnings on your prescription bottles and pharmaceutical instruction sheets. How do you expect any drug to work for you if you don't take it as prescribed? Continuous mixing of alcohol and antidepressants has one result...death. Take responsibility for your health. Do what the doctor says and if the drug still doesn't work out for you let the doctor know so he can make an informed decision about your care. Look a... ...

antidepressants and weight loss
4 Replies RSS
Is there any anti-depressants available that actually can make you loose weight and not gain? ## There's no pill that can make you lose weight. Weight loss comes from calories in and calories out. If you are not eating properly and exercising on a regular basis then it is not the pills fault for having a negative effect on your weight. Surely the drug may have an effect on your metabolism, but this is to a small degree if you cover all the other basis of your health; including but not limited to: Adequate hydration throughout the day Plenty of fruits and vegetables Low fat consumption Exercising at least 3 days a week Adequate rest and sleep schedule Loving others around you and enjoying life Essentially, if you are missing any one of these factors, you will be more prone to experie... ...

Why antidepressants are troublesome
1 Reply RSS
Would anyone care to share their thoughts on this article discussing "Why The Science Behind Anti-Depressants May Be Completely Backwards": ## It is possible. One thing that you will frequently notice, if you study medications is that many of them are known to have a certain effect or treat a certain condition, but we can't explain how or why they do so. There are some we can explain, of course, but for many, we really only have theories on how or why they work. It is, of course, also possible that serotonin isn't a happy chemical for everyone. Eventually, we may discover that its role varies depending on certain genetic factors, or perhaps in relation to the balance of other chemicals in the body. Th... ...

Rameron combined with other anti-depressants and anxiety
4 Replies RSS
I was just prescribed Rameron 30mg to take at bedtime to help with me sleep. I am also taking Adderall 30mg, Ativan 0.5mg and Celexa 20mg on a daily basis. I know Rameron has a side effect of weight gain. Has anyone heard of or experienced any worse side effects with the meds combined? Also I know it takes a while for the body to get used to a drug. If I start experiencing worse symptoms how long should I take the drug before consulting with my Dr? ## Hi, Emily! How are you doing? The most dangerous thing that can occur with this combination would be Serotonin syndrome, which can be very dangerous. Thus, if you start experiencing symptoms such as increased heart rate, shivering, sweating, tremors or twitching, then you need to seek medical attention immediately. Learn more Remeron detai... ...

why would a doctor prescribe an anti psychotic if you don t have any disorder are bipolar
3 Replies RSS
My doctor put me on Invega, along with 3 other anti-depressants, 5 years ago. Invega is classified as an anti-psychotic only it had no side effects--no sedation at all was the most prominent. Now the Invega is responsible for raising my cholesterol to 318 so I have to go off it. I was on 6 mgs. and he lowered it to 3 for one week. I was fine--as if nothing changed. After going off of it, I was a mess. I was sweating, I couldn't sleep, I felt like something was crawling on my skin and I couldn't sit still. Without his knowledge I went back on the full dose because I am in a wedding of a family member in 11 days. Then I was thinking. The symptoms I was having when I went totally off of it were WITHDRAWAL symptoms, not due to the lack of the medication otherwise. The psychiatrist w... ...

Minimal side effects
1 Reply RSS
I have been on anti depressants for some 11 months, first on Lexapro and for about 4 months on Cymbalta. My word, Cymbalta are so much better FOR ME! Yes I get the insomnia but have found taking Phenergan helpful, taking 25mg probably most nights. I can work well, do gym walking, and to be honest, function quite normally. My anxiety levels go out of whack, say once a fortnight, usually lasts a day but with the support of my wife, and friends it passes quickly. Just call people up, be honest how you feeling and the ones who really care and understand will help you through that day. The most helpful source of hope for me? Reading the Bible and knowing that we have a hope in Jesus Christ. ## Thanks for taking the time to share your experience on Cymbalta and Phenergan. I'm sure many pe... ...

Do anti depressants in general cause weight gain? ## Yes, most of them do cause it as a side effect, there are some that are known to cause it less frequently than others, but as whole, it's usually expected of most antidepressant medications. If you want to avoid it happening, you can talk to your doctor about prescribing the ones that cause lower instances of it and you can also try to increase your activity levels, as well as being very careful about your diet. Are there any other questions or concerns? ...

I have been on anti-depressants since 1999 and would like to get off them altogether. I started with Paxil and after several years, it just wasnt cutting it anymore. Lexapro was a complete 180 right from the start. I am only on 10mg a day, but would like to stop. Had a real bad experience with stopping Paxil once for a week prior to a sleep study and am worried quitting Lexapro might be the same. I dont see a shrink cause he just pushed the meds the pharm rep was selling and my regular dr doesnt know much about it... help ## After being on it for that long, you'll definitely have to do a very slow taper, otherwise on top of the possible withdrawal type symptoms, you'll also likely experience rebound effects. These effects can include depressive symptoms that are worse than the o... ...
