Feb 27, 2019 · When to take (lamotrigine) Lamictal for bipolar? in Mental Health

Can anyone tell me the best time to take Lamictal? If it causes sleepiness I should take it at night.But I have read both opinions. I have had trouble with insomnia. So I tried in the morning. I missed my dose this morning. So the internet says take it ASAP. Took it at noon.

Jul 2, 2018 · Paxil and Trazodone. Stupor in Depression & Anxiety

I am taking Paxil 37.5mgCR ( which is up from 25mgCR). I am taking Trazodone 25mg to 50mg. I use 50mg if the 25mg does not work. I am waking up extremely drugged, in a stupor, and confused when I take the 50 mg. After about 4 hours I clear up. But mornings are hell. My hands are shaky. My Psychiatrist is useless, and states that I should just stay the course. But something has to change. Are these two drugs fighting with each other or do they work together? Do I have serotonin syndrome? How does a person know? My PCP suggested Hydroxyzine instead. I tried it and it worked, however after two days, I felt a real tension in the back of the brain. Is that trazodone withdrawal? Has anybody else out there gone through these drugs? Sorry for the many questions, but I am exasperated and trying to get answers. I finally found a great psychiatrist, but she is not available until August. Don’t know what to do.

Hi Teresa, I see all the names listed like @lalyfa etc. Are these email addresses or twitter accounts? I am not a twitter person yet.

May 8, 2018 · Blurred vision from an antidepressant? in Depression & Anxiety

Hi Teresa, I have tries seroquel, 25mg (from an urgent care physician) which left me struggling from stupor the next day. My psychiatrist did not want that. Switched me to Trazodone which at first worked fine. Now it does not even though I increased the dose under his direction. I need to sleep somehow. Does the Mayo clinic have a sleep division or center? Can anyone up there help me? I'm in the Villages. Is there anyone in the near area? What do you suggest?

May 8, 2018 · Blurred vision from an antidepressant? in Depression & Anxiety

Paxil is not. However Trazodone is. The blurred vision is getting better I'm glad to say. However, I have terrible insomnia and need help! The trazodone was working for sleep several days ago. However it is not working now and I have increased the dose according to the Dr.s recommendations. I am only sleeping maybe one to two hours a night. Would a visit to the Mayo clinic get me a doctor or help me get sleep? Could they observe me for a few days? I am really worried.

May 3, 2018 · Blurred vision from an antidepressant? in Depression & Anxiety

I am taking Paxil 25mg and Trazodone 50mg for sleep. I use to take Clemazopam at .5mg but am now off that for about a week. I am experiencing blurred vision. Does this eventually go away?

Apr 28, 2018 · Strongest FDA Warnings Out on Opioid, Benzodiazapine Risks in Chronic Pain

kdoconnell2003 I was on Clemazopam on and off since January of 2018. I have used it steady (at .5 mg) for about a month now. I am withdrawing now, but I am experiencing blurry vision. I am taking Paxil 25mg CR and am now using Trazodone 50mg for sleep instead of Clemazopam.. A week ago my psychiatrist recommended melatonin at 9mg but it didn't work. Is there any discussion on blurred vision? Does melatonin cause blurred vision or is it the benzodiazapine? After withdrawing from a benzodiazepine, does your vision go back to normal? If so, how long does it take, or will it stay blurred?
