Onset of Symptoms in Childhood?
So, today me and my psych were going over some childhood stuff, and my OCD came up. I started compulsively checking things when I was somewhere between 6-8.. Taps, locks, etc, and became terrified of germs from about the same age. She mentioned that it's very unusual for people to manifest the kinds of symptoms I had at such an early age, and that it backed up both of our suspicions that my homelife was one that encouraged a lot of fear and unsafe-feelings from a young age.
I didn't realise that it was unusual for kids to have those kinds of symptoms that early. Has anyone else here had this kind of experience?
Face rash on clonazepam (klonopin)
I started taking clonazepam for sleep and anxiety on Thursday evening. Today is Sunday.
My current dosage is 1mg at bedtime. I am also on mirtazapine, 30mg at bedtime, for depression.
On Friday I woke up feeling refreshed, as though I was alive again, after a full night of sleep. That same day I noticed what looked like a bug bug bite on my right cheek which I dismissed as such. On Saturday I had another bug bite under my right eye, again I brushed it off as a bug bite. But today I woke up with the same bites, this time a lot more red, tender, and itchy than the previous days.
The right side of my face shows a clear rash starting over my eyebrow through the right side of my nose and finally descending to my right cheek with a splotch under my right eye.
I don't feel any worse, nor have I had any changes in vision or anything else that warrants immediate attention.
I've notified my doctor and I will be hearing back from him on Monday.
Should I be worried? Has anyone else had a similar experience? I don't want to stop taking it because I don't want to stop sleeping again.
I wonder if the rash will disappear as my body gets used to the medication.
Any feedback is appreciated!
Prozac stopped working due to a panic attack/trip, now I'm trying Paxil
About two years ago I got extremely high with my friends, and tripped out, and had a huge panic attack (about level 8) long story short I was not the same after this happened, and ended up in the hospital because I thought I was physcotic. As it turned out I was diagnosed with ocd. I started off on Zoloft, it did nothing for me, it turns out my body was not reacting to the medicine, due to my genotypes (my therapist did a cheek swab test to see what medications could work). I then started on Prozac and about 2 months in I finally started feeling better again, although sleepy and lethargic all the time, my mind was quiet and I was content. Fast forward a year and a half, I'm smoking weed almost everyday with my friends until one day (about 5 weeks ago) I had a major panic attack/ trip again,(level 10) and the nightmare started all over again, my Prozac had been completely obliterated. My doc upped my mess to 50mg, and I had a few booster sessions in cbt but it was not working. My doc switched me to paxil about 3 and 1/2 weeks ago, and so far I haven't noticed much change. I'm just confused at why my Prozac would just stop, after working so well for over a year. I hope these new mess (Paxil) work, I'm just really mentally exhausted and want to escape my head.
Klonapin Withdrawl Help
So, I decided to make an account because I wanted to get some ideas about what I can do to stop some of the pain of Klonapon withdrawl. I am not a substance abuser and I was perscribed clonazepam since I was 12, right now I am on a .25mg taper I take once at night which has been a little over a month now, and I started at .5mg for about 10 months , I was on a higher dosage prier to that taking 10 mg for the rest of my earlier young life taking it. I am 22 now, and most of the symptoms now seem to be under control except throughout the day I still feel a rapid heart beat, though my bpm is 62 and my blood pressure is normal, I got blood tests done and an ekg, everything seemed fine there, so I was wondering if there are any non narcotic suppliments that do not interfer with the withdrawl recovery process, and things I can do to keep my head on straight about my issues+ things that help anxiety, I would also like to know how long I should be expecting to feel palputations? Thank you =)
