Does Cipram Cause Rapid Delusion And Hallucination Seizures With Other Bipolar Disorder Medicines
Used for all those.: Abilify (aripiprazole) is an antipsychotic medication and is primarily indicated for schizophrenia and bipolar disorders with psychotic features.

Can OCD and major depression disorder treated with Prozac (fluoxetine) and Lorazepam, cause halucinations?
NOT USUALLY: Hallucinations are typically an indication of a psychotic process or maybe less serious if it happens upon falling asleep or waking up. OCD does not involve hallucinations as a symptom. Antidepressants do not typically cause hallucinations either. If the is some connection then the diagnosis may need to be reconsider like possibly bipolar disorder. Speak with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Very unlikely but: Wellbutrin (bupropion) causes seizures in about 1 in 1000 people who take 300 mg or less. The incidence of seizures increases with higher doses. Marijuana actually reduces risk of seizures. Many people who suffer from seizures poorly controlled by drugs finds marijuana often helps them far better than meds. If someone on 150 mg of Wellbutin & marijuana has a seizure it's probably not caused by taking them. ...Read more

What medication can a person with petit mal epilepsy if they take Latuda (lurasidone) for their paranoid schizophrenia and autism?
Oooh, good question: The two most commonly prescribed meds for absence (petit mal) epilepsy are ethosuximide and valproate. Both interact with Latuda (lurasidone) by an additive effect of psychomotor retardation (dullness) and risk of depression. This can be managed by slow ramp-up of drugs, clear information of what to look for, and input from famiily/friends about overall function. With dose adjustments both may be managed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What main symptoms would i be going through with severe psychosis, bipolar 1, and antisocial personality disorder?
Tegretol: I would be reluctant to attribute these symptoms to tegretol and would be concerned about psychiatric disorders or organic brain pathology. Your pharmacist can inform you about tegretol's side effect profile. A neurologist is best qualified to evaluate these symptoms and referral to a psychiatrist can be made if deemed advisable. If behavioral or cognitive issues dominate, psychiatric problems lik ...Read more

Yes: Amphetamines can mimic mania, and both amphetamine use and mania can provoke hypersexual activity. "deviant" is here a difficult word to understand--whether you mean it colloquially or in an older sense referring to abnormal (now called "paraphilic"). But in general, impulses of many kinds--sexual, aggressive, risky--that one might not want to act on can be disinhibited and exaggerated by both. ...Read more
I have bipolar disorder, social anxiety disorder and chronic pain. Is it dangerous to mix Tramadol and Seroquel (quetiapine)?
Yes: In general this combination is fine. If you are also taking an antidepressant or any other medication that could increase serotonin you could possibly get serotonin syndrome.
