  • escitalopram and sinemet

    I started taking Sinemet for Parkinsons at the same time I started Escitalopram. After just a few days I was anxious and hyper. Not sure if it was the Sinemet or the Escitalopram. I stopped the Sinemet. Has anyone else experienced these side effects to Sinemet. I have an appointment to see a Parkinsons specialist next month,

  • Hi. I’ve been taking escitalopram 10mg now for 10...

    Hi. I’ve been taking escitalopram 10mg now for 10 days. From about day 2 to 3, I developed feelings of intense paranoia. Waking up in the middle of the night with feelings of impending doom, racing heart and a belief that people/organisations were tracking me. Whilst the feeling has diminished in intensity, the paranoia remains. Would this be a consequence of the medication and if so, can I expect permanent respite from this in the near future.
    Thank you very much for taking the time to read my brief post.

  • I have been hospitalised twice over the last four ...

    I have been hospitalised twice over the last four months that I have been coughing copious amounts of blood. Every test for either the spread of cancer or anything else, has come back negative. I have Stage IV Lung Cancer and have been successfully taking Tarceva for eight years. No-one put TWO AND TWO together, when I started coughing - and then vomiting blood, about 1-2 months after starting a 10mg course of the antidepressant Escitalopram. This medication was even continued on my stay in hospital. It was only when I had a light-bulb moment, that I actually put the two in the same basket and GOOGLED your page. My GP has weaned me off the antidepressant, I stopped the Tranexamic Acid and for two weeks now I have been clear. When I am six whole weeks free of coughing or vomiting blood, I will know 100% that it is the interaction between these two drugs which has caused my problem. It has been a frightening experience and it was getting worse. I have alerted my oncologist to the situation; but somehow I don't think they want to know that little unqualified me has diagnosed a situation which my whole team of thoracic specialists could not solve. I don't want to crow yet, but I'm almost definite that it is the two medications badly interacting that has caused my problem. I am female, 65 years old, diagnosed with Stage I adeno carcinoma 10 years ago before they discovered two years later that it had spread.

    Hi,
    I'm 34 and have been taking thyroxine 150mcg and escitalopram 10mg since I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's in January 2012. I had my first episode of pancreatitis in February 2016 and a second in August 2017. I'm a non smoker, non drinker, take no other meds, have no other health conditions. USS and MRCP were normal, no stones or other problems with my gall bladder. I've recently seen a Gastro who as asked me to go off my escitalopram to see if it causing pancreatitis l. Has anyone else had the same problem.
    Thanks

    Just dawned on me that taking Escitalopram might be why I have thyroid nodules and Hashimotos - googled this connection this am and BAM. Just starting my research 9/19/17 and am not happy this link was not suggested by any medical professionals as a potential side effect. Thyroid issues are running rampant as far as I can tell but my Endo insists they have not increased. Wondering if going GF will have enough of an effect on the weight gain side effect -- also seeing some mentions online of taking Selenium... Would like to chat about these and other links between Thyroid and SSRI... thanks...

    I have been on Cipralex 10-20 mg for almost 9 years and was started on Pantorazole 40mg about 3 weeks ago. I have experienced nausea and terrible watery diarrhea 4-5 times every morning. I am on synthroid and arthrotec too.
    I realized the connection between Pantoprazole and Cipralex then once I stopped taking the Cipralex the symptoms eased. I am trying to wean down the Cipralex.
