I can't figure out what's wrong my doctor took me off viibryd cause I couldn't afford it anymore and put me on neurotin and celexa plus I take welbutrin. Ever since I started taking celexa and neurotin i feel weird, my anxiety feels worse than it did im dizzy sweating nervous feeling, very tired, stomach pain, sever headaches im going nuts and its making me and my husband fight cause he thinks I can control this on my own. And I don't know what medicine is doing it or if both are
Did you taper off the vibryd or quit abruptly? You can't just switch from one medication to another even in the same class and avoid withdrawal -- these meds are not easy to stop taking and it must be done carefully. Unless you completely stop taking a medication before starting another it's impossible to tell if your symptoms are a sign you're suffering withdrawal and quit too quickly or are side effects of the new medication. And if the celexa doesn't work for you the way the other med did, as not all meds do work for us, then you might be suffering the stimulative effects of the wellbutrin without the corresponding relaxing effect you were getting from the viibryd. Personally, if I was on a med that worked for me, I'd find a way to pay for it somehow, given the difficulty of finding meds that work, but the new meds will take time. Neurontin, in particular, usually needs to have the dose raised periodically and it might be too low at this point for you to notice. It's also not intended to relieve anxiety, it's a beneficial bonus, but as with any med it might not work for you. Only time will tell, but if you're suffering withdrawal from quitting the viibryd too quickly taking other meds won't necessarily help and might even make it harder to tell what's going on.
Well I was on 40 mg of viibryd and he took me down to 20 mg for two weeks. I didn't take the neurotin last night and I feel a little better, still alot of anxiety though. They'll be open tomorrow so hopefully they can figure out something.
