5 wks post surgery.Carcinoid tumor RT lung.Tried to put myself back on effex. just one pill.For 2 days -stayed in bed -could not eat.Panic attacks wake up at 4 am and I felt ill. dont want to vomit.(history of bulemia) for fear of eating and food making me sick.Want to find an antidep. that will not make me so sick that I cant eat.My weight is dropping,and my OCD is over the roof,and anxiety-depressed.Crying everyday.After surgery had an explosion of feelings.NEED antidep. meds.I use ativan,celexa was suggested at hosp. but Im scared after seeing side effects.Any friendly meds. exist?Cant stop crying.Dont want to lose all this weight that I fought for all year and won.The effexor and ativan seemed to help.Why did this med-turn on me?

Hello and welcome to HealingWell and the A & P Forum.

I am sorry to hear you are feeling so awful. It feels to me like you are going through a very stressful situation right now and I am not sure the med "turned on you".

Do you have an anti-nausea medication that you can take? Zofran is a great drug for nausea. You may want to try that along with the AD. Remember many of the meds can cause you to feel anxious when you first start them so perhaps try a lower dose with your physicians guidedance to get back on the med.

Also wondering if you are taking any other meds..........pain meds? They can be notorious for causing nausea in some people

Please know we care and we are here for you.

Gentle Hugs,
