Escitalopram vs Zoloft

Started taking Trintillex. Had bad side effects and stopped too fast which caused withdrawal. Now my Dr. has prescribed Escitalopram 5 mg. How long does this take to start working? Or is Zoloft 5mg better to start taking? Thanks so much. ## Zoloft is for middle aged women going through menopause It depresses young adults and seniors ## Iam waiting for a response regarding my questions about is Zoloft better or Lexapro which is escitalipram. ## Joni, which one may help you the most depends on the specific symptoms being treated, as well as any health conditions you may have, and other medications you may be taking, so it is best to try the one that your doctor has recommended. For example, since Sertraline can cause weight gain, and Fluoxetine(Prozac) usually doesn't, my husband woul...

cipralex/escitalopram/lexapro = Tinnitus

Hello. I had to take escitalopram for my bipolar disorder. The ringing in my ears started right away. I only took 20mg total over the course of 4 days and stopped, been off it 3 days now and the ringing is still going strong. I am very afraid that this will be permanent. I never had ear problems before. ## I was taking Trintillex antidepressant. 7 weeks started to hear higher tones tinnitus which l have already. Antidepressants just made it worse but luckily it stopped. It may take a bit longer best advice get this out of your system if your able to. Possibly try switching antidepressants it seems like finding the right antidepressants are hit and miss. Everyone's different Good .Luck. Stay positive!

Escitalopram 10mg

What is the proper way to get off Escialopram 10MG after taking it for 3 weeks? I am 81 years old. ## There really shouldn't be any major difficulties if you've only been taking it for 3 weeks and at such a low dosage. Maybe some minor withdrawal symptoms, but that's about it. Learn more Escitalopram details here. Are you experiencing bad side effects from it? You should double check this information, for your own health and safety. ## Thanks. I agree with your statement. Ben ## I have here a small white oval pill printed with ESC 10 on one side, but nothing on the other side. Is this a real Escitalopram? ## Come off of it very! Slowly and carefully. You don't want withdrawal symptoms which is terrible. Good Luck. Speak to your doctor as well.

Escitalopram Oxalate

white, round, 20mg tablets. Depression?? ## just was given cipralex to try for depression and anxiety - been on zoloft, effexor then prestiq - just wondered if anyone has had any good results ## I have been taking Lexam for approx 4 mths and found it to be far better than Zoloft or the mulitude of others I've been put on in the past. As I'm single I can't comment on any issues with Libido, something that it definitely affected by Zoloft, but I can say that it definitely makes it easier to get up each day. I sleep less (unlike when on Endep) and have more energy than before. I've had no issues with weight gain for once. If anything I've lost a little because I'm not gorging myself with comfort foods. I hope it works as well for you. ## Escitalopram is used to trea...

Is Zytomil the same as Lexamil?

The chemist gave me Zytomil but I have been on Lexamil for 12 years. Is it the same or am I going to start side effects again? ## Hello diane, Both Zytomil and Lexamil contain the same active ingredient Escitalopram Oxalate, so to some degree yes the drugs are the same. What may seperate these pills is what inactive ingredients they use which will determine a number of things including how long it takes you to absorb the drug, flavor, release timing, administration technique etc. I don't see a reason that you would start experiencing adverse effects so long as you don't react poorly to the new inactive ingredients. If you do start to have problems inform your doctor as soon as you can to ensure that you are still safe to administer the medication. I hope you have a great day, le...

nexito 5 mg

I have been using nexito 5mg for a long time (8 months). Each time I try to discard it I am getting severe side effects. I don't get sleep at night. I am having horrible dreams.
