i was put on matazapine 15mg after getting serotonion syndrome off sertraline and anti sickness meds were given together off the hospital big no no apparently. i was on up to 150mg sertraline over 7 years never a problem. bearing in mind id been panick attack free for 3 years before all this happened. after a week of sides of the matazapine i settled on it alright and it was getting me some much needed sleep. plus it was meant to be helping me get out of the dark depression/low the syndrome and cold turkey withdrawal or week of hell it had put me through. i was on 15mg for 6 weeks and my mood improved for week 2-3 and then they just seemed not to work at all so i was put up to 30mg not a problem. however even though it improved my mood my aniexty just got worse and worse. plus after beening on 30mg for over 8 weeks i was fin ding the more time went on the more spaced and drugged up i felt aswell. the doctor suggested last week to increase me to 45mg i took one tablet big mistake it sent me manic a rare side but it can happen and was told not to take another and go back to my 30mg after 6 days of beening back on 30mg i contacted the gp as my aniexty was just geeting worse to the point i was straching my skin raw on my arms. the doctor told me not to take my 30mg that night which was the wednesday and start taking 37.5mg venflaxine on the tuesday morning one tablet twice daily. within 40 mins of taking the ven i got a serve burning senstation and only managed to make it to my hallway before i projectile vomited everywhere. the eposide was very long maybe 30-40mins max of beening sick but then i felt very nauseas all day and my eye began to hurt i looked in the mirror and all my left eye had suddenly become bloodshot. after an emergency phonecall with the gp they said theyd never heard of a reaction like that to venflaxine and not to take another. he then prescribed 15mg matazapine to take that last night one a day for a week then one every other day and come of all drugs which im not happy about. well today ive woke up and i feel like death, nuasea but not beening sick my eyes hurt, i have orally thrush in my mouth, diarrehea ive actually had an accident today embrassing, hot flushes, pounding head. my aniexty is near enough gone however which is an improvement lol, heads pounding whats going on with me i feel shaky but im not shaking and my mood is very low again and ive just been in crying fits i need help. everything the doctors seem to be givening me is making me worse they also missed the syndrome at the begining of the year it took me going to a&e for me to almost getting sectioned for the to realise it so i dont have much faith in them my local pharmarcy and i quote said im too over dramatic for them cheek. if you know me youd know i am normally someone who just gets on with things i did serontion syndrom for a whole week at home looking after 3 kids till i snapped and that was hard beleieve me i just dont like the fact my mood is lowering the other things are bearable i guess any advice or help which be much appericated and im sorry to rant on so much im just so fed up and lost i dont know what to do x
