Scared on Serzone

“I thought maybe that I was nuts, because the doctor just looked at me like I was imagining things.”

 

I have been taking SERZONE for a year. It made me tired all the time, I had horrible nightmares, and I would go through periods of erratic sleep. Some times, I would be awakened in the night with a “deep” chill – then I would get up and lay back down and get hot flushes in my neck and head. As well as orthostatic hypotension. I have tried to get off twice…but each time within a two week period, I would become negative, anxiety prone, suffer frequent loose bowel movements and depressions. Which in turn, would make me go back on, only to suffer severe headaches, tiredness, etc…

I have allergies and when I am on SERZONE, they seem worse. I am now trying to suffer through what I call my personal withdrawal. I am scared to go back to the doctor, because he looks at me like I am nuts when I tell him that I have these side effects…since SERZONE is supposed to be relatively small side effects.

I also have memory problems and heart palpitations. The dreams are the worse. Before I took SERZONE, I really didn’t dream much and rarely if at all had nightmares. With Serzone, I have BAD DREAMS all the time. Sometimes, I wonder if I am crazy. I experience other side effects but they are tolerable.

At first I tried Paxil – that was awful. Then Doxepin, which made me swell, my breasts hurt, joint pain, and earache. I also must say that I went from 106 lbs to 124 lbs. Now that I have gotten off of Serzone, I have already seen a loss of weight. Tell me if you have heard of any of these symptoms on Serzone. Am I crazy?

Right now, I have been off for two weeks – and I am having intestinal problems, diarrhea and constipation at the same time….cramps, chills. The last two times I tried getting off, the symptoms slowly started showing up after exactly TWO weeks of not taking them. This is SERZONE. And they keep saying that SERZONE has the least effects, and that it has a short half life. But, I haven’t seen much about withdrawal associated with this drug, because I believe the studies have not been made to a large degree.

I am 43 years old. I have been on SERZONE for a year and a half. Suffer from chills in my sleep to horrible nightmares. I thought maybe that I was nuts, because the doctor just looked at me like I was imagining things. I complained of ear pain, but had no infections, etc., etc. I appreciate your concern.

ANTIDEPRESSANT: Famous German Football Goalkeeper Kills Self

Automatically translated from German into
English:

Paragraph seven reads:  “In Enke, the illness seems early
recognized, at the latest for its time in the FC Barcelona. Enke took
antidepressants.
Herewith it concerns medicines, that
interfere in the brain metabolism; that is disturbed in the very most
depressive.  Antidepressants provide that certain messenger materials and
neurotransmitter such as the  ‘good fortune hormone’  serotonin are
more long available at its cause place.  That applies above all to
medicines out of the group of the  ‘selective
serotonins resumption inhibitors’.”

Hanover (RP).  Robert Enke has suffered for years from the mental
disorder.  It was treated with medicines.  Experts appreciate that
four million German suffer from depression.  Often they are the reason of
suicide.

People illnesses make before athletes not simply.  Also
depressions stand in the arenas of the trained, robust and successful in the
sick document of the treating physicians.  The difference to other
sorrows:  None speaks about that.  A tunnel in which from outside no
one looks in, and it is is the depression as an illness far more than an only a
November blues.

Another difference, about to pain phenomena:  Hardly
one can imagine, issued like it a depressive ­ unless, it experienced
depression itself.  It concerns one “affective interference” that partially
hereditarily is and combines several symptoms.  Information

The
power of the family

Psychoanalysts consider the depression to be an
expression of aggression against the self, whose roots in the families of the
become ill is to be seen, where children must adapt themselves too strongly the
needs of the parents.

Enkes family counted as extremely sporting and
performance-related.  Its father, by profession psychotherapist, was
successful 400-Meter-Läufer.

Depressive suffer from brood compulsion,
unrest, drive inhibition, mood narrow, irritability, anxiety, insomnia,
sadness.  Depressive live frequently in disguise before the world.  In
Robert Enke, that was the case.  Only dedicated know the true size of the
illness that passes and recurs (Rezidiv) frequently in phases.  Experts
appreciate that that of the about 12,000 suicide are committed per year in
Germany by persons, who suffer from depression.

In Enke, the illness
seems early recognized, at the latest for its time in the FC Barcelona. Enke
took antidepressants.  Herewith it concerns medicines, that interfere in
the brain metabolism; that is disturbed in the very most depressive.

Antidepressants provide that certain messenger materials and neurotransmitter
such as the “good fortune hormone” serotonin are more long available at its
cause place.  That applies above all to medicines out of the group of the
“selective serotonins resumption inhibitors”.

That Düsseldorfer medicine
sociologist Johannes Siegrist the model of the “gratification crisis” developed
according to what manifold illnesses emerge, if an employee attains achievement
high, that the employer lauds however hardly or not at all.  This imbalance
between high claim from within and weak encouragement from outside leads
frequently to heart illnesses, but also to depression.

Is certain that
this crisis also well earning top athletes can encounter.  Who in its
active life frequently setbacks, insult or non-recognition register must ­

develop mental disorders.  Therapists would say:  No one can praise
herself so often even that it balances the depreciation experienced from outside

this fear weighed.  Its suicide the last way seemed to it to get rid of all
anxieties finally.
