I am having anxiety 3 weeks after Reclast infusion and Deco…

Hi! my name is*****...

Hi! my name is***** am having anxiety 3 weeks after Reclast infusion and Deco Medrol ( for body pain) - injection for Reclast symptoms. May I take my Paroxetine for the anxiety?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

The Deco Medrol (steroid) injection has taken away the body and joint pain. Good thing! Now, I seem to be having side effect of high anxiety from Medrol injection. Dr. Told me the Medrol will help with pain for 30-40 days. Pain is about gone. Taking nothing for pain. Now, the anxiety is pretty bad.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Life was pretty great before Nov. 8 Reclast infusion. Now, life is out of my control - I am anxious and depressed

To clarify your question, you want to know if it is safe to use Paroxetine after a prior Reclast infusion and Medrol injection?

Ask Your Own Pharmacy Question

Thanks for clarifying:)

Yes, it is perfectly safe to use Paroxetine at this time. There are no interactions with Reclast or Medrol.

Does this help? Please do let me know if you have further questions/concerns.

that is my question. Body and joint pain is mostly gone - not taking pain meds now. Just have anxiety at this time.

Ok great! Hope the anxiety resolves very soon:)

Please feel free to reply at any time if you think of anything else on this topic. I will be happy to assist you!

Best wishes,

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
