Im not sure if I am in the right place or not but I wanted to ask about lofepramine.
I have been taking it for about 10 days now and I feel shocking. I went to my GP today and she confirmed that the heart palpatations, tiredness, low blood pressure, dizziness, nightmares and hot flushes were probably because of the lofepramine. She wouldn't do anything about it though because that is down to my psych. My next app with the psych is 26th July, so I rang for an emergency appointment and guess what.............that will take a month!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So basically I don't know what to do. Do I take myself of the lofepramine and be without an anti depressant until the 26th July, or do I put up with all the horrid side effects???
I am also really, really tearful and very, very down. Cant stop crying, and weeping all over the place. The nightmares are awful and I feel like Im having a heart attack every 20 minutes!!
Before this I was on 150mg Sertraline. Over the last 3 years I have tried 9 different anti depressants, and nothing seems to work. I am sure my psych thinks Im making it all up, and is just sick of me.
I don't know what to do. Any advice out there??
I am also on the anti psychotic, Quetiapine, and have been for 2 years
