Doctor insights on: Bladder Pressure From Taking Zoloft

Share

Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more

Stopped sertraline: unlear when or why u stopped setraline - which may be relevant. sometimes when an SSRI is stopped, there may be a mild adjustment this change, and some pts report dizziness during this adjustment time. Dizziness is also a symptom of anxiety, so could be resurgence of anxiety symptoms. finally, could be unrelated. Schedule a visit with ur doc to discuss & receive the proper diagnosis & treatment ...Read more

Can rispredal Zoloft Buspar (buspirone) Lower my Pressure because wheni i race The dose from 50 to 75mg Zoloft and 20 to 30 Buspar (buspirone) my pressure went down to 100/59?

Possible: … but unlikely. A very mild decrease in blood pressure has been seen with some SSRIs, but your pressure of 100/59 suggests a greater effect than what is customarily seen. Neither buspirone or risperidone have been implicated in drops in blood pressure. Look for other reasons. ...Read more

Find your triggers: Anxiety and depression are closely linked.Some thoughts are triggering the anxiety.Stress and anxiety are part of modern life, but controlling your response to stress can be done.Short (1-2 min) breathing meditations (google it) can stop the mental tail-chasing that we all fall into at times. These exercises stop these mental feedback loops. It's like pulling the microphone away from the speaker. ...Read more

I been on Risperdal and Zoloft (sertraline) for 3 weeks now and lately I can't sleep, concentrate, I feel constant pressure on my head, and anxiety. Is it normal ?

See your doctor: These are very common side effects for these medications which should diminish to the point you can tolerate them by 1-2 wks. I am assuming that since you are posing this question on Healthtap that these symptoms are still. Very bothersome. Discuss with you doctor possible dose change or alternate med(s). Thank you for using HealthTap as a resource. We are here to help when you don't know what yo ...Read more

Can hydroxyzine help with the head pressure symptom of a panic attack? I'm also taking Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg. Is this a good combination?

Can hydroxyzine help with the head pressure symptom of a panic attack? I'm also taking Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg. Is this a good combination?

It can!: Hydroxyzine has a sedative effect, generally a very strong one depending on the dose. That is, the more Hydroxyzine the greater the sedation. Combining medications is always a process that deserves attention because you want to avoid interactions. In this case there is no concern with zoloft (sertraline) and hydroxyzine. However, you want to be careful with metoprolol and zoloft (sertraline). ...Read more

What to do if I am taking 1mg of klonopin and one 25mg of zoloft, (sertraline) and one 50mg of inderol for blood pressure, is it ok to have 1 12oz beer?

What to do if I am taking 1mg of klonopin and one 25mg of zoloft, (sertraline) and one 50mg of inderol for blood pressure, is it ok to have 1 12oz beer?

NO ALCOHOL!: You cannot combine klonopin and alcohol. Klonopin stays in your system for more than a day after taking it as well. The combination can have an unpredictable / multiplying effect on sedation, respiratory depression, and intoxication. Alcohol is not worth the risk. Alcohol can also temparily lower your blood pressure which may not be good to do with Inderal (propranolol) on board. ...Read more

Im 23 and my blood pressure was 107 over 37 lastnight after checking due to palpitations, my concern because i'm on zoloft (sertraline). Is that a normal bp?

NOT REALLY: No the systolic of 107 is great. The diastolic of 37 is extremely low and needs to be rechecked. See your doctor and make sure that you are not dehydrated to have such a low pressure. Not sure what BP device you used but perhaps it is inaccurate. ...Read more

I notice with my social anxiety i get head pressure. Im currently on Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg. Will the Zoloft (sertraline) help with the head pressure or should I take tylonol?

I notice with my social anxiety i get head pressure. Im currently on Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg. Will the Zoloft (sertraline) help with the head pressure or should I take tylonol?

Zoloft (sertraline): Zoloft can have headaches as a side effect. Anxiety can result in the same -- so assessing your baseline is important. Your doctor may be working gradually with the dose so that your body becomes accustomed to it, and any side effects dissipate. This may happen in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, you could take tylenol (acetaminophen) but no more than 3000 mg/day. Keep track of symptoms to share with doctor. ...Read more

Is 200mg of COq 10 safe and effective for lowering blood pressure? Current meds are Zoloft losartan betapace and nexium (esomeprazole). Any interactions?

Is 200mg of COq 10 safe and effective for lowering blood pressure?   Current meds are Zoloft losartan betapace and nexium (esomeprazole).  Any interactions?

There are two forms: of CoQ10. Neither has been regulated by the FDA. (One form appears to have more antioxidant properties). Several conditions have been associated with low CoQ10 levels including HTN, heart failure, certain cancers, gingivitis, gastric ulcers, etc. Currently there has not been a consensus arrived at as to the BP lowering effects (due to lack of controlled studies). May affect Zoloft (sertraline) level a bit. ...Read more

Probably: Zoloft (sertraline) has been used to treat many depressed people who have heart disease. At usually prescribed doses, it does not prolong qt interval. The case reports of cardiac conduction delays have been related to overdose. Since you are concerned, you should ask your cardiologist about your ekg. ...Read more
