I havnt been sleep that good lately and have been trouble sleeping at night, that why they put me on muscle relaxers. I got put on citlapram for panic attacks and clonazepram for anxiety and trazadone as needed for sleep.?
What is U question. Insomnia can have many causes, sleep hygiene is important for treating insomnia. It is ok to take sleeping medications if needed , but remember to take them on as needed basis . If u take them daily u body can get used to it. Remember trazadone can cause orthostatic hypotension , so if u wake up at night before standing up sit down a littlebit.
Is there a question? Did you have a question you wanted to ask?
Could it hurt me if im taking 10 mg of citalopram and 1 mg of clonazepam if I am sleeping more than usually but not having panic/anxiety attacks?
Not LIkley. Both medicines can cause some drowsiness so you will want to monitor this to see if the drowsiness is interfering with your daily activities. Clonzaepam is the more likely of the two to cause sedation. There is some abuse or dependence potential with clonazepam, but it is ok to take it regularly to get control of your anxiety/panic. In the long run it will be better to use it as needed. Read more...
I'm being tested for overactive thyroid. The doctor put me on clonazepam and citalopram in the mean time for severe anxiety/panic attacks. Is severe weeakness a symptom of the thyroid or the meds?
Hard to say. Without knowing your thyroid test results, this is very hard to say. If the weakness onset was right after starting the medications, that may be the cause. If you have sever hyperthyroidism ( TSH is very low and your free thyroxine, t4, is very high), then your thyroid could be contributing. An evaluation by your doctor shoudl be able to tell the difference, or find another explanation. Read more...
