    Lorazepam for Obsessive compulsive disorder

    At first I only got (inpatient) Zyprexa prescribed-whereby the medical doctor who had also-as it seemed to me-had used out of a trial mood paired with helplessness. But he did a little luck with it. At least if you have already tried almost all atypicals with mostly strong side effects (like constant resting heart rate above 100 (with Seroquel), restlessness (with Solian), Parkinsonoid (with Abilify and Risperdal).) Then again about 6 weeks after the inpatient discharge psychotic I then spent more than three years tinkering with the dose of Zyprexa (between 5mg-30mg) to control the remaining compulsive impulses, but Zyprexa had no effect on this, so I started taking Lorazepam ( However, this has only dampened the fears associated with the obsessive-compulsive impulses / thoughts.Finally, I have discontinued the antidepressant Cymbalta before half-a-half (actually unsuitable for schizophrenia with obsessive-compulsive impulses) and replaced with sertraline (also here maximum ambulant dose 200mg) and that has then completely shot down my bird he rarely (not at all) in frightening situations of coercion and have for a half year a constant dose of 10mg Zyprexa, 200mg Sertraline and 2mg Lorazepam (Tavor). Since then, I have no more mental limitations and do not waste any time trying out anything new, let alone rummaging back on the dose (that’s pure poison!). Note, of course, I also had the strong compulsory weight gain of Zyprexa: from 60Kg on up to 82kg – today I am constantly between 73kg-75kg.

    Lorazepam for Anxiety and panic attacks; Depression

    Diagnosis: (severe) depression, anxiety and panic attacks 1st trial: Sertraline. Initially massive anxiety increase. Ineffective against depression. Side effects: anxiety, agitation, depersonalization / derealization, loss of libido, cocaine pain. Abandoned after a short time. 2nd trial: venlaflaxin. Very effective against panic attacks. Ineffective against depression. Side effects: same as with sertraline. Ingestion to date (225mg / day) 3. Simultaneous treatment with Lyrica. Very effective against internal states of tension, general anxiety and agitation. No influence on the depression. Side effects: fatigue, hunger (weight gain) and slight increase in depressive inertia. 4. Following treatment with quetiapine (Seroquel). Something calming, but no effect on depression or anxiety disorder. Side effects: Massive hunger attacks and severe tiredness. After about 8 weeks again discontinued. 5. Timely treatment with lithium. Strong antisuizidal, otherwise no influence. Side effects: tremor, weight gain and acne. Taking until today. 6. On top of that, Bupoprion (Etronil). Initially highly effective against depression. After a few weeks of action disappeared. No effect on anxiety disorder. Side effects: tremor, dry mouth and sleep disorders. Unplanned treatment success against nicotine addiction. 7. On the whole cocktail again on top: Lamotrigine. Strong effect against depression. No effect on anxiety disorders. Side effects: none. 8. For 7 days try with Methylphenidad (Ritalin). No effect, various side effects. 9. Discontinuation of Lyrica and Wellbutrin without visible consequences. 10th attempt with Nortrilen. Drug very effective against depression. Side effect: Dry mouth, hunger, sleep problems and high blood pressure. Libido can not be assessed due to concomitant use of venlaflaxin. Right now I do not care about the side effects of Nortrilen. After 2 years and various attempts, the first antidepressant, which is really antidepressant. After 2 years of immeasurable suffering, I am finally on the way to recovery. For a long time I hesitated to take an old antidepressant. With all my medicine cocktail, I simply lacked the belief that something could actually work. However, I can highly recommend it for resistance to therapy today. However, the whole chemistry does not replace psychotherapy, which is necessary for longer-term recovery. Some years ago, I could not imagine why anyone could commit suicide. I was taught in a painful way a better one. Hold on, even if it does not look like it at all. It’s actually over.

    Lorazepam for Depression

    Seroquel: The only relatively unpleasant side effect: Increased appetite = strong, rapid weight gain, which, however, has declined again after discontinuation. Therefore later change back to Venlafaxin.

    Lorazepam for Borderline; Depression

    Side effects, early onset, fatigue, fatigue occasionally eye cramps, weight gain, heartburn. I have never read the leaflets because I probably would not have taken the medicine. Among the antidepressants, after being still prescribed Tavor 2.5, because of the panic attacks. But the panic attacks are not side effects of the antidepressant drugs, because they had long before. In a wanted by me deposition of antidepressants, came suicidal thoughts, try. And to remedy the annoying heartburn, then added the drug Ulnor 20 mg. The dose has never been lowered. Sertraline 100mg, previously Zoloft. Mirtazapine 45mg, previously Remergil. Lorazepam = Tavor 2.5mg.

    Side effects: Increase in weight; Fatigue

    For over 4 months, I have taken the first 3 drugs mentioned above in the clinic. 400-500 mg Seroquel, initially 45, then 30 mg mirtazipine and 1-1.5 mg lorazepam. Initially, strong weight gain (11 kg), continued hunger for sweets, meanwhile I have lost half of my hair. I have been suffering from hair loss for about 2.5 months, need more sleep and get up very hard in the morning. My liver values have been slightly elevated since taking the medication and must be constantly monitored.
