    Oxygesic 200mg a day + Oxygesic acute each 10mg if needed and 40mg citalopram. I came to Oxygesic only after repeated Drug rotating, ie changing the drug group. Before morphine, Jurnista and Palladon, also in combination with Lyrica, or gabapentin, dexamethasone, Novalmin Tr. Constantly increasing need for Oxygesic to cope with the pain. Permanent fatigue, weight gain 20kg, hunger, constipation, erectile dysfunction, loss of libido, forgetfulness, decreased brain power, irritability Despite Movicol, the constipation is terrible. Once a week, the tissue tears into the anus and then bleeds. Hellish pain. The pain-relieving effect is good with Oxygesic, which is why I stayed there at the moment. Eventually a setting on L-polamidon will be made soon. The ever growing Oxygesic needs make my pain Dr. Concern. Unfortunately, I am retired very early and can drive (by Oxygesic) no car. Sport is no longer possible and the hobby is only very limited possible. The positive attitude to life is almost gone. Contacts tear off and every day the question why am I good for what else can I teach my children what to offer my wife?

    Citalopram for Depression

    I suffered from severe generalized anxiety disorder and depression for more than 4 years, but did not dare to take psychotropic drugs and did not treat myself. A self-experiment with St. John’s wort (Jarsin) was unsuccessful. Finally, when I was about to commit suicide, I thought, now it does not matter, I’m trying – I went to a neurologist who prescribed Pram (citalopram) for me. I should start with 10mg and increase to 20mg after 2 weeks. Overcautious as I am, I preferred to start with 5mg (a quarter tablet), increase to 10mg after 2 weeks, and finally to 20mg after 3 or 4 weeks. This medicine has given me back my life! (But that has its price, and I’m not talking about money here …) After just a week with 5mg, I realized that something is changing. There were always small moments in which I felt better, and these moments became more and more frequent and longer. After a total of 3 weeks, two of them with 5mg and one with 10mg I was as newborn. I was the human being once again, many years ago. No fears, no depression, I just felt good, was able to live again and enjoy the beautiful things of everyday life. Although it went downhill a bit, but when I finally increased to 20mg, I remained stable. I’ve been taking Citalopram for almost exactly 5 years now, and have not had any serious and long-term mental health problems since as long as I took the pills (for the big one, see below). Side effects: After starting the intake and after each dose increase for about 1 week very severe headache, an unpleasant pressure on the chest, for about 2-3 weeks temporarily nausea and moderate dizziness. All of these side effects disappeared completely after 3-4 weeks at the latest. However, a very unpleasant side effect persisted – massive sexual disturbances to almost total impotence. Although an erection usually comes about, but then often passes along with the desire, the climax is rarely and then after a very long, sometimes hours of work, and even that is more of a relief that it is finally over. Overall, sex has nothing more pleasant and satisfying anymore. My weight has not changed significantly by taking the drug. Another very significant side effect is the so-called withdrawal symptoms, as they are called euphemism, to avoid such unpleasant words as dependence or addiction. The fact is, I am very dependent on Citalopram, and I can not get rid of it. I have now 4 reduction attempts from 20 to 10mg behind me, all have failed, a complete discontinuation is not to be dreamed. Lastly, I endured 4 agonizing months with 10mg, until I was finally completely viable at the end and thus practically voided the fourth attempt for failure and threw another 20mg one morning. 10 hours later, all complaints were blown away. It is NOT a recurrence of the original disease, as is often claimed. The complaints are predominantly physical in nature and differ in some cases considerably from those against which I got the drug at that time. The symptoms in reduction (I have tried it even with 15 instead of 20mg, did not work) is always in the same pattern: -2-3 days after the dose reduction nervousness and restlessness, but also a slight euphoria, overall good mood and Urge to move – After 1-2 weeks of anxiety comparable to those before taking, confusion and standing next to me, can no longer clearly think – After a total of 3-4 weeks of improvement, I’m fine for a few weeks, and I almost believe it A few weeks later, about 8 weeks after the dose reduction, gradual onset of physical symptoms reminiscent of a cold or flu: headache, cold feeling (runny nose with burning sensation in the nose, possibly slight sore throat, fatigue … ) is best compared to the day before a cold breaks out, only that the suspected cold never comes and the short-before-the-flu condition stops t -These complaints do not stop and increase over the following weeks. At some point I feel as if I have a fever of 40 degrees, my head almost bursts, I am seriously ill and can hardly get out of the apartment; every minute movement or physical activity is a terrible ordeal, I am practically no longer viable. Every examination at the doctor gives no result, I am physically healthy. No matter how long I try to endure this condition, it does not get any better, but gets worse every day. Longer a

    Citalopram for Fatigue

    Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) cause sexual dysfunction in many people when taken. This is well known and is also in the leaflet. However, only very few people know about it and what is nowhere being warned: the sexual disorders do not disappear in some people even after the SSRI has been discontinued. In addition to SSRI, at least SNRI (selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor) and possibly SSRE (selective serotonin reuptake enhancer [Stablon]) can cause permanent sexual dysfunction. This medication damage is called PSSD (Post-SSRI Sexual Dysfunction). The following symptoms are typical of PSSD (they may not all be present together, but many of them are common): – decreased or absent libido – impotence or reduced vaginal moisturization – difficulty causing or maintaining an erection or sexual arousal – persistent genital arousal disorder despite lack of sexual excitement – weak, delayed or missing orgasm (anorgasmia) – orgasm is less or not at all satisfactory (ejaculatory anhedonia) – premature orgasm – decreased sensitivity of the penis, vagina or clitoris – genital sensory dustiness – no or diminished response to sexual stimuli reduced sperm volume – chronic erection (priapism) PSSD can last weeks, months, years and more after discontinuation of SSRI. The exact cause of PSSD is not yet definitely known. At the moment, however, there are many indications that SSRIs permanently alter the brain at the genetic level (including the serotonin receptors). In rodents, at least, this defect is proven to be inherited. It can be assumed that it behaves the same in humans. There is a real risk that PSSD will be transmitted to the children. How often PSSD occurs is also not determined. However, these are definitely not absolute isolated cases; There are simply too many PSSD sufferers. Fortunately, only a minority seems to be affected. The vast majority of doctors do not know about PSSD. As a rule, it is simply assumed that the sexual disorders are of a psychotic nature. This is partly true, but not with PSSD – a neurological problem. In the meantime, the existence of PSSD has been recognized in research. There are numerous scientific studies demonstrating PSSD (see the wiki article). Unfortunately, this knowledge does not penetrate, or too slowly to the public. You normally only learn from PSSD when it’s already too late. In addition to further research, it is therefore urgently necessary to educate people about PSSD. Currently, there are no known therapies / remedies that fix PSSD. After all, some sufferers recover over time by themselves and others help certain substances (vitamins, amino acids, herbs). In addition, experiments with rodents are underway that give cause for cautious optimism. It’s not about scare or antidepressant bashing, but about people making an informed decision when it comes to SSRI & amp; co. goes. And PSSD is just a possible consequential damage. It is undisputed that the knowledge of PSSD can make people very difficult to weigh up; but the reality can not be changed. To be aware of our own responsibility as a patient, we need to know what we are considering. We recently founded a German-speaking self-help group for PSSD sufferers. We would be delighted if people who had sexual problems following the discontinuation of antidepressants would join. So we can exchange ideas and search together for solutions. The site is still in its infancy. But we plan to add some documents bit by bit. Most of all, we hope for new members to work together. Our suggestions to all those who would like to do something in terms of PSSD: – Doctors (especially psychiatrists and neurologists) address the problem, preferably by submitting the wiki article, which refers to specialist literature. – If you know someone who is or might be affected by PSSD: Please alert to PSSD. – If you suffer from PSSD yourself, you may also report it to the drug authorities. Attention! Please do not stop treatment with SSRI due to this post! If at all, this should always be discussed with the attending specialist and, if necessary, be slow. Incidentally, could a

    Citalopram for Anxiety and panic attacks

    Had an uncontrolled tantrum at work in September 2015, had to go to the personnel office the next day. Wanted to attach a negotiation note, but I did not say or sign anything without a works council. I went to the internist because of that. I first got citalopram 10 mg, then 20 mg. Drug makes me much calmer, sometimes even indifferent. Tantrums much more controlled. Unfortunately as a side effect weight gain (from 120 kg to 130 kg), sexual aversion, erection problems, very late or no orgasm. Secretly dropped the medimament, made me more aggressive.
