I been feeling a lot of tingling hands w/ a heart dropping feeling. I'm on Risperdal, Zoloft, (sertraline) and lorazepam. Is it anxiety? How do I get rid of it?

I been feeling a lot of tingling hands w/ a heart dropping feeling. I'm on Risperdal, Zoloft, (sertraline) and lorazepam. Is it anxiety? How do I get rid of it?

See MD: I'm not sure what you mean by "heart dropping feeling" but your tingling hands could be due to several things eg. anxiety or medication side effects. Not enough information here to say more. Suggest you review with your prescribing doctor to rule out med side effects. You might ask about decreasing one med such as Risperdal to see if symptoms lessen. Your doctor needs to evaluate cardiac symptom.

May I take zoloft, (sertraline) lorazepam and Dilantin at the same time. I have a history of seizures.

No interaction: There is no interaction, but you must be careful about the risk of falling and driving until you know that the lorazepam is not too sedating.

My father is taking 25mg of sertraline & 1 mg of lorazepam for vertigo but he seems to be getting dizzier each day should he stop the lorazepam?

My father is taking 25mg of sertraline & 1 mg of lorazepam for vertigo but he seems to be getting dizzier each day should he stop the lorazepam?

Call doc.: Both can cause dizziness. Dizziness should not be the only reason he got both meds. Call doc for advice on whether to stop, change dose, or get seen to make sure there is no serious cause of dizziness. Dizziness in older people need to be investigated thoroughly if it lasts more than a 2-3 days (and was felt to be nothing much before that).

I take Zoloft (sertraline) 100 mg daily dr prescribed lorazepam. 05 mg as needed can you take the two together?

Yes....: They are safe together. Sertraline is the generic for zoloft (sertraline). They are the same drug. Take the Lorazepam only if necessary and only as prescribed.

I took today 6 0.5 lorazepam spaced throughout the day. I'm 30 year old female 5"2 and 127 weight. I take 5 1/2 ability and 150 Zoloft (sertraline) daily for dep?

Medication effects: Zoloft (sertraline) 150 mg/day is high for maintenance dose of depression and can have side effects. Using Ativan with Zoloft (sertraline) may increase dizziness, confusion, difficulty concentrating, impairment in thinking, judgment, and motor coordination. Your Health is PRECIOUS! Feeling “spaced throughout the day” indicates need to go to ER for Diagnosis and Treatment.

Early I had said about my boyfriend taking the pills lorazepam and Zoloft (sertraline) with alcohol but, he just told me that he took 2 mg. Should he go to the er?

Early I had said about my boyfriend taking the pills lorazepam and Zoloft (sertraline) with alcohol but, he just told me that he took 2 mg. Should he go to the er?

Bad combo: I'm not sure whether you trust your boyfriend to tell you the truth? Earlier you said he was complaining of "feeling weird" after zoloft, (sertraline) lorazepam, and alcohol. I assume you mean 2 mg Lorazepam -- but if there is any question at all about having taken a higher quantity of that or the zoloft, (sertraline) then yes I suggest going to the er.

How long after taking sertraline 50mg (generic Zoloft) can I take Ativan (lorazepam) (1mg) If I need it? Doc prescribed the Ativan (lorazepam) to take as needed up to 3/day

When needed: Zoloft (sertraline) is an SSRI and can take up to two weeks to reach maximum benefit in your system. The ativan will work in minutes. OK to take as needed until you get two weeks out and you should have less need for it.

Took 20 of Lorazepam 0.5mg Effects? Dangerous? HTN PCOS G.A.D Depressive Disorder Zestoretic 12-10mg Ativan0.5mg Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg

Took 20 of Lorazepam 0.5mg Effects? Dangerous? HTN PCOS G.A.D Depressive Disorder Zestoretic 12-10mg Ativan0.5mg Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg

Go to ER: Ativan (lorazepam) is a sedative/hypnotic so yes it is dangerous since it will knock you out for hours! And if you took them intentionally (as a suicidal attempt) as opposed to accidentally, you certainly need to seek help for better treatment of your depression! GO TO ER, ask a friend/family/neighbor to take you there!

What could happen if I took 20 Lorazepam 0.5mg pills? HTN PCOS Anxiety Depressive Disorder Provera Zestoretic Ativan Zoloft (sertraline)

What could happen if I took 20 Lorazepam 0.5mg pills? HTN PCOS Anxiety Depressive Disorder Provera Zestoretic Ativan Zoloft (sertraline)

Don't Do It: Obviously you could have serious side effects. The fact that you are asking this question means that you care about yourself and you want help. You should speak with a psychiatrist or other mental health professional. Therapy does work. You may benefit by medication or a combination of medicine along with therapy. Self experimentation with meds is rarely helpful

Breathing fast and hyperventilating when sleeping seems like after taking Lorazepam Cause? PCOS HTN Provera (medroxyprogesterone) Zestoretic Ativan Sertraline

Breathing fast and hyperventilating when sleeping seems like after taking Lorazepam Cause? PCOS HTN Provera (medroxyprogesterone) Zestoretic Ativan Sertraline

Complex: Hyperventilation at night can be related to stress, congestive heart failure, drugs taken at bed time, other. So, wide range of possibilities. Lorazepam is a sedative. If taken for stress, and hyperventilation occurs with dreams then anxiety might be the relationship. A formal sleep study could provide diagnosis by seeing timing, heart pattern, and associated details.

Is ativan (lorazepam) 1 mg taking daily at bed time is harmful in long term even if I become addictive to it. Take sertaline 25mg telmisartan40 n amlodipine5 also?

Is ativan (lorazepam) 1 mg taking daily at bed time is harmful in long term even if I become addictive to it. Take sertaline 25mg telmisartan40 n amlodipine5 also?

Addiction: Yes. Addiction is about the disease in the brain, not necessarily about the drug. Addictive disease leads to despair, obsession, and death. Addiction is often a lonely existence, and often without joy or spirituality. Seek sobriety and serenity.

Is ativan (lorazepam) safe to take with anti depressants (zoloft)?

Is ativan (lorazepam) safe to take with anti depressants (zoloft)?

If prescribed: If your doctor has prescribed Ativan along with your zoloft (sertraline), (sertraline) s/he will give you a particular dose and timing schedule. This could be on a regular or as needed ("prn") basis. Used this way, Ativan and zoloft (sertraline) can be safe together. Sometimes Ativan can help anxiety temporarily, while getting onto zoloft (sertraline) for panic, etc.
