does Effexor have benzos in it?????? ## Hi, Lisa! How are you? No, Effexor contains the active ingredient Venlafaxine, which is an SNRI class antidepressant, so it's not a benzodiazepine, nor is it related to them. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, weight changes and dry mouth. Learn more Effexor details here. ...

Indianapolis Dr Psych willing to prescribe benzodiazepines

I had a tremendously horrible up-bringing. My parents werent physical, with me, but the verbal abuse was so intense that I can no longer take it. I worry non-stop then I worry about why I am worrying about so many things. Takes me forever to fall asleep, then I get up tired. I just completed 6 weeks of Lexapro, & sure, it helps...but only just very slightly makes me feel happier. Ive had Effexor XR, Zoloft & Abilify. All of it makes me weird & extremely tired. Not a good pride to pay for the very minute feeling of happiness. And yes, I let them run their course for 3-4 weeks. I cannot handle it anymore. I cant even look for them off the street now because i cant chance a random UA at my job. I have zero self-esteem, have a hard time communicating & i just want it to go a... ...

My name is sue, & I myself have taken trazadone. It belongs to the benzodiazapan family. It didn't make me lose weight, quite the opposite. In 11 months I have gained a total of 85 lbs. Iwent to the doctor & he told me to quit eating& excersize. So I felt that I could trust what he said because hes a DR. Finaly I went to a differsnt Dr. & he prescribed me EFFEXOR XR and ever since, (27 days ago) I have lost 14 lbs. Im no Dr. but it worked for me so ask your Dr. about it. Good luck, sua ## sue, thanks for the posting i was wondering if it could be keeping me from losing weight. actually they have me on it to help me sleep at night. they had be on doxipin before didnt loose weight for a whole year and craved sweets and this was shortly after my gastric bypass then i re... ...

I need a doctore that will help me what i really need is either lorazapam or klonopin i practiacally live in my bathroom i cant work or even function i need a doctor near peoria il who could help.... ## Hello, Jesse! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're so miserable. Due to the new regulations set forth by the DEA last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a psychiatrist, a general practitioner won't be able to prescribe them for you. That may be why you've had to try so many SSRIs. The FDA lists benzodiazepines as most commonly being used to treat anxiety ... ...

three meds together. please help!

can I take 1mg Kalma and 30mg oxazepam together with 150mg effexor ## Hello, Chops! How are you? Both the Kalma and Oxazepam are benzodiazepines that treat the same conditions, so there is no need to take both of them. Doing so risks overdose. This medication also carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. But there are no reactions between taking one of them with the Effexor, though it's always best to double check such information to be certain. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

A Difficult Choice - Stopping Antidepressants
2 Replies RSS
Let me begin by stating that if I had fully understood how horrible it would be to stop taking the various SSRI, SNRI and benzodiazepines that I have been prescribed over the years, I don't think I would have started taking them in the first place, or perhaps I would have done things differently. I certainly knew there were risks involved, however, I avoided doing a ton of internet research, as this can cause unnecessary doubt and instead, I put my trust in my healthcare providers. It seems that the small percentage of people who do not experience withdrawal from these drugs (Effexor, Clonazepam, Cymbalta) gives some doctors enough confidence to put patients on these medications without fully explaining the probable consequences. Sadly though, when you are someone who lacks emotiona... ...

peach pill has r on 1 side scored with numbers 029 on other side ## This tablet contains 0.5 Alprazolam, the active ingredient in Xanax, which is a Benzodiazepine that's used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Side effects may include: nausea, headache, dizziness, and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with? ## 0.5 xanax for anxiety, very habit forming. ## I'm not a writer and I'm going 100 miles an hour with voice recognition so please bare with me if words are run together. it is so funny I came across you. the way you are being treated is wrong. xanax is meant for a short term antidepressant to get you through. the right meds are effexor - start with 100 and 50 milligram twice a day and if that is not achieving your goal, move to 150mgs a day twice. that... ...

Does Lorazepam show up the same as Xanax on a drug test
40 Replies RSS
I went to my doctor today to get my scripts refilled and he gave me a drug test to check my levels? I am prescribed .25 mg of Xanax 3 xs daily and 150 mgs of Effexor daily and methadone. Since I ran out of Xanax and took lorazepam instead will the lorazepam show up as the same thing as Xanax? ## It depends on the type of test he uses. There are some basic tests that just check for the presence of Benzodiazepines and if that's the one he uses, then since they are both in the same drug family, that's all that it would show. However, they are both different drugs, Xanax contains Alprazolam and Lorazepam is the generic for Ativan, so a test that looks for the specific metabolites would show exactly what you took. Learn more Xanax details here. Learn more Lorazepam details here. When... ...
