Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products. Several of these therapies provide relief from cold symptoms. Vapor rub applied to the chest and neck has been shown to improve cough severity and quality of sleep for the child and parents, but it has a strong smell that children may not tolerate.19 Studies regarding therapeutic use of zinc sulfate show a trend toward decreased duration of cold symptoms when it is taken within the first 24 hours of symptom onset.20 Adverse effects, such as bad taste and nausea, are more common with zinc lozenges than with syrup or tablets.20 Pelargonium sidoides (geranium) extract (Umcka Coldcare) may help resolve cough and sputum production in children with the common cold.18 Buckwheat honey is superior to placebo for reducing frequency of cough, reducing bothersome cough, and improving quality of sleep for the child.16 Honey should not be used in children younger than one year because of the risk of botulism.

Nasal Irrigation and Acetylcysteine. During acute illness, nasal irrigation with saline can help alleviate sore throat, thin nasal secretions, and improve nasal breathing and can reduce the need for nasal decongestants and mucolytics.17 A systematic review of six trials published in the 1990s found that acetylcysteine (commonly used in Europe, but not in the United States, as a mucolytic) may decrease cough after six to seven days of therapy in children older than two years.13 The main adverse effect of acetylcysteine is vomiting.

Inhaled Corticosteroids. Some children with viral cold symptoms also develop wheezing. Although low-dose corticosteroids are ineffective in these children, one review of high-dose inhaled corticosteroids found a trend toward decreased frequency of wheezing episodes that require oral corticosteroids, the duration of episodes, and the number of physician visits.8

Key tests for identification

Influenza can be diagnosed on symptoms alone and there are some test that laboratory can also use. There are some tests that are rapid and those that take days to come back with results (3). There are culture-based and non-cultured based methods to diagnose the infection. PCR, ELISA-type assays, or immunofluoresence are rapid influenza test that provide results within 24 hours. Results from cultures test take a little longer, 3 to 10 days because they normally are not performed right in the spot, they are normally sent out to diagnostic laboratories(3).

Signs and symptoms of disease: (12)

If infected with influenza the person will usually feel symptoms 1 to 4 days later. You can spread the flu to others before your symptoms start and for another 3 to 4 days after your symptoms appear. The symptoms start very quickly and may include (12):

· Body Aches, specially joints and throat

· Dry cough, sneezing

· Extreme coldness and fever

· Nasal congestion: stuffy nose

· Fatigue (extreme exhaustion)

Note: Typically, the fever begins to decline on the second or third day of the illness (12).

Virulence factors: Clycoprotein spikes, overall ability to change genetically. Most eukaryotic organism bases their reproduction in DNA. However, the influenza virus reproduces the RNA (8). According to studies, the properties of RNA help to explain the epidemiology of influenza and the difficulty of achieving successful prophylactic treatment by using vaccines (8).

Drifting and Shifting

Influenza virus is one of the most changeable of any known viruses. These genetic changes may be small and continuous or large and abrupt (8). Antigenic drift- Small, continuous changes happen in type A and type B influenza as the virus makes copies of itself. Antigenic shift occurs when to different flu strains infect the same cell and exchange genetic material (7). The novel assortment of HA or NA proteins in a shifted virus creates a new influenza A subtype. The drifting is frequent enough to make the new strain of virus often unrecognizable to the human immune system. For this reason, a new flu vaccine must be produced each ear to combat that year’s prevalent strains (7).

Doctors often prescribe antibiotic eye drops or ointments for pink eye. But antibiotics don’t usually help, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology. They can do more harm than good. Here’s why:

Antibiotics are not usually necessary for pink eye.
Pink eye can be caused by a virus, an allergy, or bacteria.

Pink eye is usually caused by a virus. Viral pink eye usually goes away on its own in a week or so. Antibiotics do not kill viruses.

Pink eye can also be an allergic reaction to some­thing like pollen, dust mites, pets, contact lenses, or cosmetics. This kind of pink eye gets better when you avoid the things that are causing the allergy. Antibiotics don’t help allergies.

A third type of pink eye is caused by bacteria. This can be helped by an antibiotic. However, mild bac­terial pink eye almost always goes away within ten days without medication.

Antibiotics can cause problems.
Antibiotics can cause itching, stinging, burning, swelling and redness. They can cause more discharge. And they can cause allergic reactions in some people.

Antibiotics can be a waste of money.
Generic antibiotic drops and ointments can cost $12 to $60. For newer, brand name drugs, you can pay over $130. And if you have an antibiotic-resistant infection, you will need more doctor visits and costly medicines.

Who should use antibiotics for pink eye?
You might need antibiotic eye drops and ointments for bacterial pink eye if:

  • Your symptoms are severe.
  • Your immune system is weak. This might happen if you have another illness.
  • Your infection does not get better in a week without treatment.

Know the symptoms of different kinds of pink eye.

  • Viral pink eye: Symptoms can include watery eyes along with a cold, flu, or sore throat.
  • Allergic pink eye: Symptoms include itchy eyes, swollen eyelids and a runny or itchy nose. It is more common in people who have other allergies, such as hay fever or asthma.
  • Bacterial pink eye: Symptoms include a thick, often yellow-green discharge that lasts all day (usually not with a cold or flu).

  • La grippe est une infection virale aiguë qui se propage facilement d’une personne à l’autre.
  • Les virus de la grippe saisonnière circulent dans le monde entier et peuvent toucher n’importe qui dans n’importe quel groupe d’âge.
  • Dans les climats tempérés, les épidémies saisonnières surviennent principalement au cours de l’hiver, tandis que dans les régions tropicales, la grippe peut apparaître tout au long de l’année.
  • La grippe est un problème de santé publique sérieux qui provoque des maladies graves et des décès dans les populations à haut risque.
  • Une épidémie peut également avoir des répercussions économiques par perte de productivité et solliciter énormément les services de santé.
  • La vaccination est le moyen le plus efficace de prévenir l’infection.
  • Des médicaments antiviraux sont disponibles pour le traitement.

La grippe saisonnière est une infection virale aiguë provoquée par des virus qui circulent dans le monde entier.

Il existe 4 types de grippe saisonnière, A, B, C et D. Les virus grippaux de type A et B circulent et provoquent des épidémies saisonnières de grippe.

  • Les virus grippaux de type A se subdivisent en sous-types en fonction des associations d’hémagglutinine (HA) et de neuraminidase (NA)- les protéines de surface du virus. Les sous-types des virus grippaux A (H1N1) et A (H3N2) circulent actuellement chez l’être humain. Le virus grippal circulant A (H1N1) est aussi écrit A (H1N1) pdm09 puisqu’il a été à l’origine de la pandémie de 2009 et a ensuite remplacé le virus A (H1N1) de la grippe saisonnière qui circulait avant 2009. Seuls les virus grippaux de type A ont été à l’origine de pandémies.
  • Les virus de la grippe B ne sont pas classés en sous-types mais peuvent être divisés en deux principaux groupes ou lignées, appelés les lignées B/Yamagata ou B/Victoria.
  • Le virus grippal de type C est détecté moins souvent et ne cause généralement que des infections bénignes. Ses répercussions sur la santé publique sont par conséquent de moindre importance.
  • Le virus grippal de type D touche essentiellement le bétail et n’a pas jusqu’ici provoqué d’infection ni de maladie chez l’homme.

La grippe saisonnière se caractérise par l’apparition brutale d’une forte fièvre, de toux (généralement sèche),de céphalées, de douleurs musculaires et articulaires, de malaise général, de maux de gorge et d’écoulement nasal. La toux peut être grave et durer jusqu’à 2 semaines et plus. Chez la plupart des sujets, la fièvre et autres symptômes disparaissent en l’espace d’une semaine sans avoir besoin de traitement médical. La grippe peut toutefois entraîner une maladie grave ou un décès chez les personnes à haut risque (voir ci-après).

La maladie, de bénigne à grave, peut même entraîner la mort. Les hospitalisations et les décès surviennent principalement dans les groupes à haut risque. Au niveau mondial, ces épidémies annuelles sont responsables d’environ 3 à 5 millions de cas de maladies graves, et de 290 000 à 650 000 décès liés aux maladies resposatoires.

La plupart des décès associés à la grippe dans les pays industrialisés surviennent chez les personnes âgées de 65 ans ou plus 1. Les épidémies peuvent se traduire par des niveaux élevés d’absentéisme au travail et des pertes de productivité. Les dispensaires et les hôpitaux peuvent être saturés au cours du pic de la maladie.

On ne connait pas précisément les effets des épidémies de grippe saisonnière dans les pays en développement, mais les estimations issues de la recherche indiquent que 99 % des décès d’enfants de moins de cinq ans atteints d’infection des voies respiratoires inférieures associées à la grippe surviennent dans les pays en développement 2.

Tous les groupes d’âge peuvent être concernés mais certains groupes sont plus vulnérables que d’autres.

  • Les personnes présentant le plus gros risque de maladie ou de complications graves sont: les femmes enceintes, les enfants de moins de 59 mois, les personnes âgées, les personnes souffrant d’affections chroniques (cardiopathies ou pneumopathies, maladies rénales, maladies métaboliques, troubles neurodéveloppementaux, maladies du foie ou hématologique) et les personnes souffrant d’affections immunodépressives (VIH/sida, chimiothérapie ou stéroïdes, tumeur maligne).
  • Les professionnels de santé risquent fortement d’être infectés par le virus de la grippe en raison d’une exposition accrue auprès des patients, et risquent à leur tour de contaminer, en particulier, les personnes vulnérables.

Pour ce qui est de la transmission, la grippe saisonnière se propage facilement et la transmission dans les lieux très fréquentés comme les écoles et les maisons de retraite peut être rapide. Lorsqu’une personne infectée tousse ou éternue, elle projette dans l’air des gouttelettes porteuses du virus (et de l’infection) qui peuvent atteindre jusqu’à un mètre et que vont inspirer les personnes se trouvant à proximité immédiate. Le virus peut aussi se propager par les mains contaminées. Pour prévenir la transmission, il convient de se couvrir la bouche et le nez à l’aide d’un mouchoir lorsque l’on tousse et de se laver les mains régulièrement.

Dans les climats tempérés, les épidémies saisonnières surviennent principalement au cours de l’hiver, tandis que dans les régions tropicales, la grippe peut apparaître tout au long de l’année, avec des flambées épidémiques plus irrégulières.

Le laps de temps qui s’écoule entre l’infection et la maladie, que l’on appelle période d’incubation, est d’environ deux jours mais peut être comprise entre un et quatre jours.

La plupart des cas de grippe humaine font l’objet d’un diagnostic clinique. Or, pendant les périodes de faible activité grippale et en dehors des situations d’épidémie, l’infection par d’autres virus respiratoires – rhinovirus, virus respiratoire syncytial, virus paragrippal et adénovirus – peut aussi se présenter sous la forme d’un syndrome de type grippal, ce qui rend difficile la différenciation clinique de la grippe par rapport aux autres agents pathogènes.

La collecte d’échantillons respiratoires appropriés et l’application d’un test diagnostique en laboratoire sont nécessaires pour établir un diagnostic définitif. L’adéquation de la collecte, du stockage et du transport des échantillons respiratoires est la première étape essentielle de la détection en laboratoire des infections dues au virus de la grippe.

La confirmation en laboratoire du virus de la grippe à partir de sécrétions laryngées, nasales et rhinopharyngées ou de liquides d’aspiration trachéale ou de lavages s’effectue généralement en utilisant le dépistage direct d’antigènes, en isolant le virus ou en dépistant l’ARN grippal spécifique par la réaction en chaîne de la polymérase-transcriptase inverse (RT PCR). L’OMS publie et actualise toute une série de préconisations sur les techniques de laboratoire 3.

The swelling also narrows the cavity, resulting in further congestion and this catarrh can be clear and runny or thick and coloured.

For reasons that are unknown, some people have abnormally sensitive blood vessels that react to environmental triggers, such as cigarette smoke and pollution.

This causes the affected blood vessels to swell in a similar way to an infection or allergic reaction and it is this swelling leads to congestion and catarrh – it is known as vasomotor rhinitis or non-allergic rhinitis.

Cigarette smoke and pollution are common triggers for this, with others including perfume, alcohol, spicy food, changes in the weather and stress.

For most people these are of a blocked or 'stuffy' nose, a runny nose or mucus that runs down the back of your throat, an irritating cough, headache, loss of smell or taste, pain in the face, fatigue and occasionally mild hearing loss or a crackling sensation in the middle ear.

Most cases of catarrh do not require any medical attention as they usually clear up within a few days once your body fights off the underlying infection.

However, if your catarrh persists over a number of weeks then see your GP as they may then want to rule out other conditions such as nasal polyps or to find if your catarrh is being caused by an allergy.

Most cases require no specific treatment. But if it does not clear up on its own, treatment then depends on the underlying cause.

Decongestant medicines can help relieve a blocked nose by reducing swelling of the blood vessels in your nose.

These are available from pharmacies without a prescription but should not be used for more than a few days before seeking advice as they can occasionally make the congestion worse if used for too long.

Decongestants do not usually cause side-effects and, if they do, they are likely to be mild, but may include irritation to the lining of the nose, nausea and headaches.

Steam inhalation treatment may also help. This involves inhaling steam from a bowl of hot (but not boiling) water and can help to soften and loosen any mucus in the nasal cavities.

Some people find that adding menthol crystals or eucalyptus oil to the water also helps. Steam inhalation is not recommended as a suitable treatment for children due to the risk of scalding.

Your GP may examine your nose to check that there are no nasal polyps and may also want to check that the catarrh is not the result of an allergy.

They may ask whether your symptoms are worse in particular environments or at certain times of the day or year. This will help them to pinpoint a possible allergen such as pollen.

If you have small nasal polyps (fleshy growths in your nose) it may be possible to shrink them using a nasal spray that contains steroids, but larger polyps may need to be removed with surgery.

Different mold species can have varying health effects, but it is important to remember that any excessive mold growth needs to be taken care of, regardless of the species. Any excessive mold growth can lead to increased allergies, toxicity, and house/building structural problems.

Aspergillus Versicolor. The most common species of Aspergillus. Among skin problems and hair loss, this fungus has been linked to severe abdominal pain, acid reflux, and vomiting.

This group of molds can thrive on water damaged, cellulose-rich material in buildings such as sheet rock, paper, ceiling tiles, insulation backing, wallpaper, etc. In the majority of cases where Stachybotrys is found indoors, water damage has gone unnoticed or ignored since it requires extended periods of time with increased levels of moisture for growth to occur. Stachybotrys is usually black and slimy in appearance. Events of water intrusion that are addressed quickly tends to support the growth of more xerophilic fungi such as Penicillium and Aspergillus.

Permanent problems sometimes associated with fungal exposure after treatment:

Note: Many of these symptoms could also be the onset of other illnesses, as well, and only a skilled physician is diagnosed to give you a full and qualified diagnosis. Additionally, it is important to know that much of these symptoms will deplete after vacating the building. Diet, nutrition, and medical assistance are extremely important.

  • Painless swelling in a lymph node
  • Chills/temperature swings
  • Recurrent fevers and excessive sweating at night
  • Unintentional weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Persistent tiredness and lack of energy
  • Breathlessness and coughing
  • Persistent itch all over the body without an apparent cause or rash
  • General fatigue
  • Enlarged tonsils
  • Headache

The symptoms of lymphoma are commonly seen in other, less serious illnesses, such as influenza or other viral infection. These symptoms are often overlooked , but in cases of less serious illnesses they would not last very long. With lymphoma, these symptoms persist over time and cannot be explained by an infection or another disease.

The most common symptom is a painless swelling in a lymph node . The neck or armpits are common places noticed first, but the swelling can occur in other parts of the body including the groin (that may cause swelling in the legs or ankles) or the abdomen (that can cause cramping and bloating). Some patients with lymphoma notice no swelling at all while others may complain of night sweats, weight loss, chills, a lack of energy, or itching. There is usually no pain involved, especially when the lymphoma is in the early stage of development. Most people who have nonspecific complaints such as these will not have lymphoma. However, it is important that any person who has symptoms that persist see a doctor to confirm that no lymphoma or serious illness is present.

You may have found our site because you are concerned that you may have a parasitic infection. In this section, we will help you by telling you which parasite symptoms are most commonly associated with parasitic infections. Armed with a little knowledge, you will then be able to take the right actions to move you in a healthier, parasite-free direction.

The parasite symptoms that are associated with parasites and the infections they cause vary greatly and can indicate other causes. Some parasites can exist in the body for years and never produce a single symptom. Others will have symptoms so severe you would require immediate medical attention. It can be very hard to pinpoint an exact cause of some of the symptoms or even be misdiagnosed.

Chronic fatigue or extreme tiredness is a common symptom of a parasitic infection. The reason someone infected by a parasite may feel so tired is because the parasite living in the intestines will sap the nutrients out of the food he or she digests. The parasite will thrive, and its human host will be under nourished.

Iron deficiency, or anemia, is often caused by worm parasites in the intestines. This is a major contributor to feeling chronically fatigued. Some differences between chronic fatigue and just your run-of-the-mill tiredness are that chronic fatigue will not improve with rest, becomes worse with both mental and physical activity, and is associated with feeling weak and sore muscles.

Since many human parasites make their home in the digestive track, their hosts are likely to experience digestive related symptoms. Most of these are very unpleasant and can be embarrassing. They include belching, excessive flatulence or gas, vomiting, bloody stools, and diarrhea. Some may experience fecal incontinence or oily stools.

    Although goiter responds well to iodine supplementation, it is best to treat the iodine deficiency immediately. If left untreated, iodine deficiency progressively destroys the tissues of the thyroid gland. After five years, even iodine supplement or thyroxine replacement cannot reduce the size of goiter because the damage is then permanent.

    It should be noted that goiter can be caused by hyperthyroidism too and this second type of goiter does not involve iodine deficiency.

    Cretinism is closely linked to iodine deficiency and goiter. In fact, it was the observation that parents with goiter are more likely to have mentally retarded children that revealed the nature of cretinism.

    Signs of cretinism include impaired mental development, squint, deaf-mutism, stunted growth, improper stance and walking gait as well as all the other symptoms of hypothyroidism including low basal metabolic rate, low basal body temperature, cold intolerance, fatigue, weight gain and hair loss.

    Iodine deficiency is the most important cause of cretinism and it can account for about 15-point difference on the IQ (intelligence quotient) scale.

    Iodine supplementation is the only way to prevent cretinism and the supplementation is most effective when given in early childhood while mental capacity is in rapid development.

    The re-appearance of iodine deficiency and hypothyroidism in developed countries is caused by a trend towards low salt consumption. In a bid to reduce the risk factor for hypertension and edema, most people in affluent nations are taking the widely publicized health advice to drop salt from their diet.

    Unfortunately, iodized salt has been the most used and the most effective public health initiative to reduce iodine deficiency and prevent goiter, cretinism, and hypothyroidism.

    Adding iodine to salt is a very cheap means of eradicating iodine deficiency. Experts estimate that it costs only a few cents for every ton of salt produced.

    However, care should be taking with treating iodine deficiency with iodized salt.

    Where the deficiency is severe and met with high intake of iodized salt, hyperthyroidism may result. In addition, people who are older than 40 years have a greater risk of developing hyperthyroidism from taking iron-fortified food products.

    Where salt consumption is heavily restricted, iodine can still be obtained from the diet by eating more saltwater fish and sea vegetables such as kelp.

    Peri-menopause symptoms may start around 40 years of age. The actual menopause symptoms may show around one year after the last period and continue until 100 years of age. Speaking with thousands of women, we have identified 45 Menopause Symptoms. Some women experience these symptoms mildly, while other may experience them strongly. This is a list of menopause symptoms some women experienced and were relieved using DON’T PAUSE:

    Hot flashes are temporary sensations of overwhelming heat. Some women also experience chills or a rapid heart rate along with the sweating, flushing and sensations of heat. A hot flash that is accompanied by redness in the face and neck may be called a hot flush while a hot flash that occurs at night and is accompanied by profuse sweating is often called a night sweat.

    Swollen legs, ankles, or feet

    Difficulty thinking and focusing

    Feeling down or depressed

    Trouble remembering things

    Slower speech or movement

    Swollen thyroid gland

    *This is not a comprehensive list of symptoms.

    Keep in mind that just because you may have some of the above symptoms, it doesn’t mean you have hypothyroidism. Listen to your body. If something doesn’t feel right, be sure to make a note of it. Keep a record of any symptoms you might be experiencing and let the doctor know about them at your next scheduled visit.

    The Symptom Profiler can help you record your symptoms. Remember, everyone is different. Some people with hypothyroidism experience only a few mild symptoms, or sometimes, no symptoms at all. If you think you might have hypothyroidism, talk with your doctor. He or she will be able to give you a proper diagnosis. But realize that even after proper diagnosis and care plan, it’s important to maintain a partnership with your doctor.

    I hope it inspires others as well. They do offer coaches for a fee, but I’m doing it on my own. There are a number of vegetables that contain protein. I have never been good at eating vegetable, but juicing is completely different. It’s like getting Chinese food, or a bowl of vegetable soup, when they’re mixed together it’s a different animal.

    And for the lady that has colitis, I have that too. I add cabbage into my juice because it is suppose to be able to heal ulcers.

    I guess when you’re in great pain, you hold onto anything that gives you (temporary) pleasure, like Tab, because it’s easier than giving it up. As a person in the movie said, he wasn’t in denial that he had diabetes; he was just in denial that he had to do something about it. I guess that’s been me. I congratulate all of you who have succeeded in quitting your addictions and I hope I will join your ranks quickly.

    For Diane Flemming I send my prayers. I wish that any evidence they found later could help her, but I guess as long as people are being paid off to allow these poisons into people it doesn’t seem like it’s possible… but I like to believe anything is possible. I hope she gets her miracle and is released.

    As for all these people who are causing harm to people around the globe I wish somehow we could find a way to stop them. Either way I believe in Karma, and I’m so thankful I don’t have theirs. We need government leaders that refuse payoffs/job opportunities, and will follow the laws they make to protect the public.

    Regardless of age, a woman's hormones all work together like a symphony; if one part of the orchestra is not functioning properly, then the melody you produce is out of tune. Signs of hormonal imbalance in women are a very real quality of life issue. All women need to be aware these signs of hormone imbalance.

    Over the last 100 years as we have doubled our life expectancy, the soft tissue glands which create our hormones are being forced to produce them longer than ever. Our increasingly stressful lives, worsening nutrition and lack of proper fitness combine to result in declining levels of hormones in our bodies.

    Even when only one unbalanced hormone is present, it may result in the following hormonal imbalance symptoms in women.

    Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance in Women:

    That beautiful, tuned melody that we look for is your optimal health, free from premenopause symptoms and menopausal symptoms. Women with balanced hormones integrated with proper nutrition and fitness can have a better quality of life as they age.

    I thought I would answer as we are about the same age. I was taking Lexapro 10m.g for about two years, then after telling my doctor how depressed I felt it was increased to 20 m.g. One day I realized I was not feeling anything I wasn't sad I wasn't happy just blah and no ambition. So, started to wean myself off. After being a caregiver for years I knew how this should be done. However, I was impatient and now believe I did it too fast. I had most of the withdrawal signs listed. Flu-like symptoms, headaches. hot flashes, dizzy, couldn't eat because of stomach upset. this went on for about three weeks. I have felt very well now for about three days and forgot what the real me was like. I'm not giving medical advice here but for myself I am glad to be off the stuff and really wish I had never started it. I know now I should have gone very, very, very, slowly giving it up. I feel so good without it, wished I had done it sooner.

    Weaning off off Lexapro is not a wonderful experience. The flu like symptoms are really strong. Headaches and head shakes as if I have fibromyalgia. It has been two weeks so far and the symptoms are still there! It is horrible! If you plan on weaning of the medication, please make sure you have nothing big going on in your life because you need to plan on the side effects.

    I have weaned down from 20mg slowly over two months and have been on no lexapro for 3 weeks. I am 41, feel emotionally stable but the physical side effects are horrific. I have brain flashes, tingles in my face and hands, flu like lethargy and then insomnia, dry mouth and twitches in my neck. I was on lexapro for 3 years after post natal depression. I cannot believe how awful it is to try and work (I'm a contract chef/single parent supporting 3 children) and function in this state. I wish my doctor had no been so blasé as to using these tablets in the first place, let alone coming off them. I've read that fish oil supplements may help so have been taking those for 2 days. Good luck to anyone else experiencing this. I really hope it eases soon.

    Jessica, When you say "Brain Flashes" do you mean you will have a Flash Mental image or thought then you can't figure out what it was?

    I DEVELOPED A CARDIAC ARRHTHYMIA DUE TO A SIDE EFFECT OF LEXAPRO. THE CARDIOLOGIST FELT IT WAS MORE IMPORTANT TO STOP THE LEXAPRO ABRUPTLY. (I WAS TAKING 40MG DAILY FOR 10 YEARS). MY SIDE EFFECTS ARE HORRIFIC TO SAY THE LEAST. 'IRRITABLE' IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT. MY POOR DAUGHTER; IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH FOR ME TO SNAP, THEN THE TEARS FROM GUILT ARE HORRIBLE. I AM HAVING A HARD TIME CONVIENCING MYSELF THAT THIS WILL PASS AND KEEPING BELIEVING THAT LIFE WITHOUT ME WOULD BE MUCH BETTER FOR MY FAMILY. I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE MY LIFE I SIMPLY FEEL LIKE I'M HURTING THE PEOPLE I LOVE THE MOST. I'M A REGISTERED NURSE BUT AM ON A LEAVE OF ABSENCE UNTIL STABLE. I THOUGHT I SUFFERED FROM DEPRESSION, BUT RIGHT ABOUT NOW FEEL LIKE A PSYCHOPATH. MY SIDE EFFECTS INCLUDE: FLU LIKE SYMPTOMS, SHAKING, INSOMNIA, ANXIETY (WITH SEVERE HEART PALPATATIONS), AND IRRITABILITY. I WANT TO BE ABLE TO CONTROL HOW I FEEL AND ACT LIKE SO MANY TELL ME I CAN, BUT I CAN'T. MAYBE SOMEONE CAN GIVE ME WORDS OF ENCOURAGMENT THAT THIS WILL PASS.

    It will get better,,

    After 6 yrs of 10 mg day i stopped due to low sodium. It was my dr idea to take this junk but she is a pill pusher with a license. Considering talking to a lawyer. Well after losing 11 lbs in 10 days from puking and nausea at 14 days it got better and taking a anti nausea med still lott of nausea and forgetfulness headaches but beteer than first weeks SO glad i quit feel better and life is real. Thats something nwo type drug and i do not believe in conspiracy theory but this. Has me thinking twice lol

    I feel awful for all of these commenters!! I went through awful anxiety/depression myself, took various meds (xanax, clonopin, and others that I don't recall now because I was in such a brain fog). I felt detached and suicidal on the meds. I changed my diet dramatically, switched to organic food (from cherrios and poptarts!). I found Dr Atkins vita nutrient solution book and took amino acids, b vitamins, GABA, Sam-e, valerian root, as much as I could afford because I felt.so awful! And those things worked for me! It took about 3-4 weeks. I remember waking up one morning and consciously thinking "I don't feel so bad!" And I never looked back. I suffered from anxiety for at least 20 years, starting at age 13. Did you know low thyroid can cause anxiety? Sure enough I had low thyroid! I also treat that naturally. I'm on this thread now because my teenage daughter has severe depression, and she doesn't want to try my therapies. She has it in her head that she just wants a drug. I found these threads taking about horrible withdrawal and I feel terrible for everyone, and sure that I don't want her on this drug. My advice to every one, eat real food! Our food supply is nothing like what got us here over hundreds of thousands of years. I was eating the standard American diet (acronym is SAD) and I was paying the price. You can't eat sugar and poptarts and spaghetti and expect your body and brain to function properly. Yes, it's more expensive, but if you look at it the other way, cheap food is a rip off, because it's not giving you what you need to be healthy, and illness stinks!

    I was on lexapro for 5 days for anxiety.it made most of my symptoms worse and I had to stop given that I'm self employed and was risking the loss of major contracts due to its side effects. This may sound odd but for years I was on a drug called Dexedrine(dates back to the turn of the century)for mild ADHD.it may sound(as it did to me)counter intuitive given that it's an amphetamine but this drug really helps calm the mind and it does it almost instantly.ive tested this on over half a dozen people who at one point were struggling with mild(divorce)to major depression(my wife)and everyone had good to great things to say about it.it was perceived by a psychiatrist and I can't thank him enough it literally saved lives.after 10 years I started weaning myself off with few side effects(I started on a large dose 15mg x 2) if any because of a back injury.i was fine till last year when I started experiencing chest pain and a year later after a ton of tests and a bit of a breakdown with realized it was anxiety. I made sure I had a bit of a stock pile of the drug just in case and would use it on occasion when I needed a mental/physical boost or to help a friend in dire straights. with the green light from their doctor. Now here is my point,if you research this drug it isolates the same protein as amphetamines and cocaine. this apparently makes it the latest greatest drug for depression,I couldn't disagree more. there's no money to be made on Dexedrine therefore doctors are leds by the nose and prescribe the latest greatest. Within 45 minutes of taking the first dose I was a changed person(a bit of euphoria but hey who doesn't enjoy that,especially after feeling like crap for whatever amount of time prior)happy,up lifting thoughts concentration(I know I use a lot of brackets. I'm still in a fog from this drug)this is still the drug of choice for the us Air Force when on bombing missions. You have to ask yourself,why in the world the most advanced military on earth use such an "out dated drug"?Because it works,fast with no or little side effects. a B2 bomber is worth 2 billion dollars,they certainly aren't skimping on the price of drugs.im currently using 5mg twice a day to counteract the drug(otherwise I'm useless at this point)and will up the dose accordingly over the next few days and hopefully feel normal again. Oh yeah I forgot my side effects. tons of energy,laser focus,happy,slight decrease in appetite for the first week or so,positive /creative thoughts and it(according to everyone who's used t around me who has used it,seems to lift the heavy vail like feeling associated with depression and some if not most anxieties. All this being said,this is not a silver bullet or cure all for everyone and your doctor(who in all likely hood will be ill informed on the subject)may not want or know how to prescribe it but it's worth a shot and if not a psychiatrist would be more willing to given that my doctor was almost opposed to it from the start.Bare in mind I've tried other drugs pre and post Dexedrine and one I tried that was "non addictive" had again terrible side effects and had me back on Dexedrine within a few weeks.ok one history lesson your doctor won't want to here,the only reason hitler was able to convince his army to go deep into Russia with heavy loses,frostbite and starvation was do to a form of Dexedrine. He and his doctors were fully aware of the psychological effects of this drug given that he himself was an amphetamine user.

    Well I hope this helps someone if not many people but I must state that this is what I and others in my inner circle have experienced when in their darkest hours and maybe something you would want to explore. yes it's an amphetamine and with over 11 years full time experience at a high dose then another 2 at lower I can personally report no ill side effects just like the few long term studies have shown.

    Good luck to everyone and please do your research before you approach your doctor. be armed with concrete research(all of the above and more)and your doctor maybe willing to give it a try. it's not for everyone but it is for most. and remember it targets the same area of the brain as lexapro. oh yeah cognitive behavioural therapy should be accompanied with any of these drugs for long term success.

    I took Lexapro @ 20mg daily for 6 years. I weaned off by decreasing to 15mg for a month, then 10mg for a month and finally, 5mg for a month. I have been off for two weeks now. The past week, my skin will start feeling like fire ants have bit me. It starts on my face and travels to my arms, then chest and stomach and then finally my legs. Also itching. I am sleeping about 4-5 hours a night (Not all at once) but I awake several times a night. I have NO anxiety. Is anyone else suffering from the stinging nerve issue?

    Did they finally go away? I am having that exact same feeling for a month now.:(

    I have just started reducing my amount from 5MG to.25MG - I understand just how you feel, I've been on Lexapro for 6 years. Ugh.. Ugh. Ugh. Do you every get the feeling of feeling out of you body. So hard to explain.

    I'm also cutting down my clonazepam (Good God).

    I don't even know what feeling normal is like.

    Stay strong. I'm in the same boat.

    Yes I am getting those out of body sensations too! I thought I was going completely insane. I'm weaning off lexapro at this time and just stopped cold turkey after only three days of weaning off. The next day I felt like my brain lagged behind my body movements by maybe a couple of milliseconds. It's like my proprioception went offline for a bit, and then a moment later I'm back. Even breathing felt alien to my brain.

    I have been on multiple mental health medications whilst going through a long drawn out court case (7 years).

    The medications per day included:
