I have recently started Zoloft for anxiety. I was also given xanax. Xanax would calm me down a bit, but not stop my aggrivation, or quick temper. When my Zoloft dosage was raised to 100mg from 50mg I started to experience unpleasant side effects. Mainly the inability to sleep, no sex drive, leg tremors, and yellow fingernails. I immediately went to the doctor when seeing my nails turn yellow. My therapist suggested i may have bioplar II, hyper mania.
Until I can be diagnosed by a psychiatrist, my family doctor has given me Zyprexa to take for the next three weeks, and has lowered my Zoloft to 50 mg. He stopped the Xanax, as I cannot take it with Zyprexa. I would like to know why.
I smoke pot, but do not drink alcohol. I am aware that I will be told not to smoke pot. However I would like to know the actual side effects of this drug and marijuana.
As well, I will be getting a wisdom tooth out soon. I will be precribed Vicodin, as Tylenol 3 w/ codeine bothers my stomach. Can I take these?
One other concern, is that I am starting birth control pills to regulate my periods,a dn help my PMDD.
Thanks for your help.
