I am on 15mg of Lexapro (escitalopram) and 15mg of remeron. Whichmed could be causing a nagging jittery feeling in my head. I would appreciate an answer?

I am on 15mg of Lexapro (escitalopram) and 15mg of remeron. Whichmed could be causing a nagging jittery feeling in my head. I would appreciate an answer?

EVERYBODY who posts: On HealthTap appreciates an answer. Why should you be any different? The neuroleptics can cause what are called dysphoric reactions; I don't know whether "a nagging jittery feeling in my head" could be considered dysphoric, but maybe close enough. Either the escitalopram or the mirtazapine can cause your symptoms, but if I wanted to stop 1 to see if the symptoms go away I'd start with Remeron. ...Read more

Can rhodiola cause stomache a he's and jittery feelings if I am also on Prozac (fluoxetine) and thyroid meds?

Can rhodiola cause stomache a he's and jittery feelings if I am also on Prozac (fluoxetine) and thyroid meds?

Who knows: What's in it or what harm it could do. Why are you taking it without knowing? In addition you're taking Cytomel (liothyronine) which shouldn't be taken by humans and can easily cause the symptoms you're mentioning. That's why (among many other reasons) you shouldn't be taking it. Do you really have a thyroid deficiency? If so, take brand name T4 in appropriate doses. Talk w/your doctor. ...Read more

I was on 20mg lexapro (escitalopram). I reduced to 15mg. Could this cause headache and jitterness.

I was on 20mg lexapro (escitalopram). I reduced to 15mg. Could this cause headache and jitterness.

Possibly.: It is unclear whether the symptoms came with the Lexapro (escitalopram) or with the reduction, and why the reduction? If the former the symptoms are unusual since more commonly they are GI and sedation, but still possible. If the latter, it could be the decreased tranquilizer effect. In my experience a person who is taking or has taken a benzo, such as diazepam, is less likely to respond to an SSRI. ...Read more
