I believe that I can help.
There are certain common side effects of Ritalin withdrawal. They are:
anxiety, nausea, exhaustion, severe depression, abdominal cramps,agitation, and insomnia
and is it normal that those issues last 4 months after my last pill?
Panic and anxiety do NOT have to have increased heart beat.
You have been checked out and they did find some abnormal activity in your right temporal lobe.
You have also been taking a series of other psychotropic medications.
Have you been given any antianxiety medicatiuons of the benzodiazpine class such as alprazolam or lorazepam?
they have given me lorazepam during my attacks and it immediatly calmed everything down
If these are anxiety attacks, these medications would make a difference and indicate that it probably is indeed anxiety causing this.
That is a strong indication that what is happening to you is indeed anxiety. You should continue with this medication on an as needed basis, and possibly talk to a therapist about other stressors in your life.
i do not understand why sipralexa ( lexapro) caused an increase of psams i nthat case
of spasms in that case sorry
Lexapro has many different side effects for different people.
and is it normal that the issues last untill 4 months after stopping ritalin?
Muscle twitches is a side effect of Lexapro for some people.
It is hard to know just what triggers your body to do this, but it seems that if you respond to antianxiety medication (lorazepam) then you probably are suffering from anxiety and as long as the stressors continue, so will the symptomatic reactionsl
ok, thank you for your time dr
