There are also other non prescription interventions that can provide an additive benefit to medication. These may include diet, exercise supplements, neurofeedback as well as others.

I am 43 and experiencing palpitations especially when I lay down. They wake me out of sleep. I have anxiety and take Prozac (fluoxetine) for that but it isn't help?

Common problem: Palpitations can be a sign of all different types of heart arrhythmias. The greater majority are safe & are common to most people at one point or another. There are some palpitations that are more frequent with body position, at night, or during the onset/offset of some medications/foods, but people also tend to notice them more when they go to bed. See your PCP for evaluation & possible test. ...Read more

Vary your approach: Are you sleepy reading anything or just school work? Try to vary the time of day/place you read for school.

Depression, Anxiety: I understand your concern. Using Ambien (zolpidem) with Lexapro may increase dizziness and difficulty concentrating. You may also experience some impairment in thinking and judgment. Gain of 30 pounds is likely a symptom of Depression due to stress.. See Physician for diagnosis of weight gain. See Psychiatrist for Diagnosis, Medication benefits and side effects, dose , and Therapy for stresses in your life. ...Read more

Look inside: if stress or thoughts are keeping you awake, try taking some GABA and 5-10 mg of melatonin 1-2 hours before the time you would like to be asleep, both are over the counter sleep aids. Blood tests may help discover if your thyroid needs treatment - if your body is producing too much - have a physician do a simple physical and lab. ...Read more

I want to start zoloft (sertraline). I am terrfied it will make me dizzy or create vertigo?! is this common? Also in scared for widthdrawl when i come off it? Help

"TERRIFIED"?: Anxiety itself can cause dizziness, often from hyperventilation as a physiological response. Many anxious people are hyper-vigilant of body sensations, fearing they indicate life-threatening issues. Zoloft (sertraline) can definitely help chronic anxiety, but >10% of people may experience dizziness with it. This also leaves 90% of people who don't! hoping you continue psychotherapy for anxiety along with this. ...Read more
