  1. I have had a non-stop headache for a week now, or since I stopped Seroquel. I was taking a tiny amount (25 mg) so my psych doc thought stopping it suddenly was okay and I was on it for only a month. However, I have had this headache with nausea since then and it wasn't until I started with the brain zaps yesterday that I wondered if I was going thru Seroquel withdrawals. I have had brain zaps while going off of drugs in the past. I have also had to stay away from anything with bright lights as my eyes have been bothering me to. Originally thought it was a migraine but now rethinking. Then two days ago, I got a horrible muscle spasm in my back. I could feel it slowly coming on, getting acute and slowly going away, never had that before, weird. And having dizzy spells as well that come and go. Oh and hypotension too and regulating body temperatures. My psych doc wanted me to start Latuda right away, but I want to wait until Seroquel is all gone. I can tell it's still in my system as I am still having rigid muscles and muscle spasms in my legs and neck. Going to give it one more week and let myself dry out before starting on anything. Taking 600 mg of Ibuprophen daily to help with the headache and ice and hot packs for my back and neck. Will just have to sweat it out, not going back on that drug again. Now worried about Latuda. Also, forgot to mention I stopped Pamelor at the same time and was on that for a month as well, at a low dose. So, pretty sure this is all withdrawals I am going thru.
  2. Hello all, I have OCD/Anxiety/Depression I was on: - lexapro: 4 years Started late 2010. 10 increased up to 60 (there was single day 3 pills cant remember 20mg or 10mg high up dose) short time. decreases down to 5. and stop points with rejected change in meds. luvox: 3.5 years started early 2014. 150 ended in 100 decreased down to 50 after that 1.5 weeks attack of continuous eye pains. And stop points with rejected change in meds. and last full stop. What im feeling after approx. 7 months after stopping: 1.5 weeks atack of continuous eye pains. after the attack, right eye pulsating sharp/heating sensation (mostly for now), pains along with easily eye straining and drying, constant red spot/subconjunctival hemorrhage near tear canals reaches to cornea that persists most the day and decreases after sleep for short time.. Did any one experience this type of eye pains before? (what do you advice me/ what should i do?) - return to lowest possible dose and if so, in what size 13.5 or 17.0 or 5 mg or what med, and should I get digital scale? - Waiting while taking coffee and pain killers. - I still get light (with rarely heavy) ocd thoughts/ anxiety/ panic attacks/ depressive mood (current moment they are all mild to me); should I cut all that crap of evaluating with no meds and return to my original dose in sudden. - I don't know if ill ever go to psychological doctors I think the previous docs have a part in the problem. please excuse language and memory errors... Thanks in detail:
  3. Recently, I have been overcome with periods of intense sadness. Out of nowhere, I will experience crying and feeling completely overwhelmed to the point it sometimes takes an hour to get over it. This is a problem, especially when I am at work or in public. Any kind of slightly emotional thought seems to trigger it. I feel like I am always at the edge of bawling. Here is some background: In the past year, my adult son (23) nearly died in an auto accident, fully recovered, then had a massive stroke last month, fully recovered again, but has a couple more surgeries to go. In the meantime, my marriage with his step-dad has deteriorated quickly due to his unemployment and subsequent bankruptcy. Now I know this seems like a "Duh", but I am not a person who "does" emotions well. I am pretty much of a suck it up type. My meds have been working great this past year and got me out of a multi-year depression, but now I am really irritable and some symptoms of my mania are coming back (high libido, racing thoughts, lack of concentration). Going to start talk therapy again soon and have an appointment with med doc, but what do I call this what I am experiencing? Sadness Attack is the best I can come up with. Anybody else experience this kind of thing?
  4. I have been taking 15mg remeron and 200mg seroquel. Recently, my doctor decided to throw in clonidine for adhd. I took clonidine and felt fine afterwards (4 hours later). After which I decided to split my seroquel dose. I took 50-100mg seroquel (with plans to take the other 100mg at bedtime) and within an hourish, I have had this constant pressure headache. It has been about 28 hours of non-stop pressure headaches. Ct scan came out clear. I stopped taking anymore more meds after the headache began. Could this be because I lowered seroquel dosage?
  5. Hello! I've been on Trintellix for 10 weeks now. Started at 5mg for 1 week, then 10mg for 4 weeks. Bumped up to 20mg for 2 weeks but the headaches were so bad that I went back down to 10mg since then. As per PDOC - Wanting to increase dosage back to 20mg and then slowly to 30mg in hopes of getting anxiety under control. Do the headaches ever go away? If I know that there's a light at the end of the tunnel I think I can knuckle through the rough part. Headaches (migraine quality) are my only side effect. No nausea.
  6. Hey guys, Just joined CB, seems like like a community with some respectable feedback. So,hello. Issue at hand: Around the clock jaw tension and headaches Prescribed: 2x15 mg IR Adderall 1x morning // 1x late-afternoon 30 mg XR Adderall 1x with 15 mg IR in morn 2 MG Clonazepam 1 MG Xanax Fioricet The pain in my jaw is located just below my lobes, closer to my temple than my rear neck, but still the jaw. I clench, I crack, rub, warm cloths, but still solution that ends with relief. Went to my GP and was prescribed Fioricet but have not recognized any significant relief. The only relief is on heavy benz dosages. I'm taking Magnesium supplements and my last option it seems is the mouthguard. Any suggestions? Experiences?
  7. Yesterday I discovered something called "cervicogenic headaches" and it sounds EXACTLY like my problem. I keep telling the Drs my neck is killing me and it feels like a migraine that goes from my head all the way down into my shoulders. How pain meds do NOTHING except opioids. And I keep getting prescribed NSAIDS and bullshit that does not work. I tried Botox and no luck. I need to talk to the Dr. about this discovery of mine, but no one calls back. She seems to be a good doctor and maybe she can help. But wtf am I supposed to do when they tell me I'll probably be in pain forever and all I can do is physical, occupational, and psychological therapy for the pain? I say fucking bullshit. Nothing? I just read several scholarly articles that say blocks can be done and are successful in many patients. I was told by two doctors that blocks weren't an option because the nerves in the neck are not set up like elsewhere. So are they just lying to me? I don't get it. It's obviously an option. So here I am, in pain. Day after day after day after day after day after day. And I'm at the point where if it's between me killing myself to stop the torture and alleviating the torture but becoming habituated on black market opiates, what the fuck would anyone choose? I'm *this* close to going on a hunt. I am so fucking sick of this. How am I supposed to handle this? Their suggestion was going to intensive multi-faceted therapy for: TEN HOURS A DAY FIVE DAYS A WEEK THREE WEEKS STRAIGHT Because I don't have a job to be at? Um, yeah. I do. No med insurance without a job, so they can take their idea and shove it. I'm sure it lines their pockets just fine. I'm so fucking sick of being ignored. What the fuck do I have to do???? What has anyone done? I can't take this anymore. I'm not even 30 and I'm fucking disabled and in constant pain. Not even death would bring relief. How do I keep myself sane without resorting to illegal drugs for my pain? I can't take this anymore. I'm going to lose my fucking mind. I want to end it all. But I won't. Because I'm stubborn. But my stubbornness only extends so far. It's between my life and habituation. I see no other options.
