You should be talking with your treating psychiatrist and seriously consider discontinuing prozac. It certainly does cause a feeling of disconnectedness, and that may have started a vicious cycle.
It is very possible that it is the toprol that can be messing you up. I went through 3 months of panic attacks, depression, etc, last year. I was bounced from one med to another, but all the while no one considered my blood pressure medicine which at the time was Toprol XL 50 mg. It finally took going to a cardiologist for someone to say a person who is battling depression shouldn't be on Toprol because it can lead to depression and anxiety (My normal MD gave me the Toprol, not the cardiologist, so he was sort of a second opinion). Once I was taken off of the Toprol, I finally started to settle down. Talk to a pharmacist and talk to your Doctor about it. It's worth a shot. There are several different meds they can put you on that will handle the heart problem.... Toprol isn't the only one.
I just began taking Toprol for high blood pressure and Celexa for depression (about 6 days ago) Are the two drugs a safe combination? I've lost appetite and feel tired all the time. Do these side effects "go away" eventually?
I have been on verapamil 240mg twice a day,
for the past 2 years, prescribed by a former
After a treadmill test with new doctor, he ADDED
1/2 50mg tablet to the verapamil regime...about
4 weeks ago.
In the last week, I am extremely tired, after regular
sleep, needing naps to make it through the day!
Although I asked the current doctor his opinion
of calcium channel blockers mixed with beta blockers
(and diuretic), he seemed to think it was ok...
Is anyone familiar with this? Should I see a cardiologist?
