  6. It could be a side effect. One good web site I use to check all my meds is www.rxlist.com Just put it in the search and it will tell you all about it. Good luck.
  7. Miscarriages are so hard. I've had 6. Those led to some of the worst depressed times in my life. Keep your head up and keep a positive attitude if you can. It will help you get through!
  8. I have two that get home about 3:30 and one who gets home about 4:15. That is usually when I'm fairly calm...dinner does get me a little riled but not bad. It's when I'm alone that I freak out. While I'm here during the day. I keep telling myself just to clean the house (it could sure use it) but all I can do is sit here frozen in fear. Then once everyone is in bed asleep I'm "alone" again so I freak out. I'm already freaking out about errands I HAVE to run tomorrow. My husband wanted to go to this big event he got free tix to tonight and I had to tell him I just couldn't deal with a big crowd. He sort of understood but I could tell it bothered him. His company is sponsoring the event. But I'm afraid if I go I'll just lose it in the middle of the place. Maybe I should just take some Klonopin, have a glass of alcohol and go.
  9. Every time I turn around there is a post (or several) that fit me perfectly. I've been heavy all my life and have been a food addict since I was a teenager. I, too, eat till I make myself sick...although I won't puke- I'm also vomit phobic!! I have a horrible time with food...I see it and want to eat it..and mostly junk food. Because of this I have no energy, no motivation. Even as I'm shoving it down, sometimes I'm in tears praying to stop. There's always a hope that it will change. I've accepted myself as a fat woman and don't have a problem with that at all. I even have a shirt that says "Fat Chick & Proud". It's the fact that I cannot control what I put in my mouth. Munchy munchy munchy....
  10. Wasn't on meds through any of my pregnancies. Some days were up, some were down. It was helped by the fact that I was always happy about being pregnant. Keep a positive attitude and you'll help yourself and the little one!
  11. I am definately cutting down on the smoking. And I even take my meds (including those that help me sleep) at 4:30 every afternoon. I have glow in the dark stars all over my ceiling that sometimes help me relax and sleep. I've noticed the last couple of days in the afternoon about 1 or so I get really freaked out for no reason. I don't smoke at all during the day. Right now I'm a stay at home mom. I have a new bed- the best I could find and sooo comfortable. My room is the perfect temperature and my hubby is a cuddler. I still get all freaked out and can't sleep. I totally have that little kid routine at night...still the same since I was a kid even! Then when it's time to get in bed I just wake right up. Then I start to panic that I won't be able to get to sleep or get enough before the alarm goes off. Maybe I just need to drag myself in there and lay down. Maybe it's just not hauling my arse in there and falling into bed. Heaven knows I should be tired. I only get about 4 hours of sleep a night. And once I'm out I'm out. AAArrrrGGGhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  12. Thanks for the suggestions. And yes, I'll be talking to my dr. about this when I see him on the 7th. pan is usually the only way I can calm down and feel human again. Klonopin helps too, but the other night it took 5 mg of the stuff to get me to the point where I could sleep. I've tried taking out caffeine and all I get are headaches, I haven't tried dairy though I don't drink milk and eat very little in the way of dairy products. Funny enough, after my post I did a little internet research and the one thing I found most often was to have sex...lol...but I just can't do that every night of the week. I will have to look at the white flour in my diet and see how that pans out because that is somewhat prevalent. I haven't tried that one. The taking a walk thing is a great idea I know but getting out of the house requires Klonopin on my part. I hate to leave and try to get everything I need to done on one day a week. But what the heck...maybe I can get the hubby to tag along and it won't be so bad. I'll look up other dietary things too to see if there is something else in my diet that could be contributing to this. Thanks again all.
  13. Works for my kid. He does wake up a lot at night and occasionally has problems with tics, but it's likely that isn't from the Straterra. It keeps him sane. I'm so grateful for it.
  14. It's been a miracle drug for my son who has ADHD as well as anxiety and rage issues. His neurologist told us it was originally designed for men with anxiety and rage issues and then they discovered it works really well for ADD and ADHD. He's a happy kid when he takes it and a monster when he doesn't. Like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I'd consider it if I were you. At least try it if the dr. suggests it.
  15. I was on Effexor for a bit...my biggest problem with it was the "brain shakes"... felt like my brain was bouncing around my head in a lightning storm. There were days it would be so bad I had to stay in bed. It was painful...I got off that stuff FAST. Yuck.
