Thinking of keeping my daughter on Zoloft only

Posted by LAURAH952 on June 23, 2013, at 23:35:46

In reply to Re: Remeron and Zoloft for MDD, my 13 yo daughter, posted by LAURAH952 on June 23, 2013, at 23:28:31

Hello all,

With the go-ahead from my daughter's pdoc, I'm contemplating a slow taper off Seroquel, and not adding Remeron or anything else; Just keeping her on 100mg Zoloft.

She's convinced that these other meds are hurting her, but believes in the Zoloft. (I'm thinking reverse placebo effect here)

Does anyone have ANY thoughts on this after reading my exhaustive account of her depression?

Thanks to all of you! I really appreciate it.
Laura

This is sometimes called the "nocebo" effect. It is true, though, that someone may feel more depressed on certain drugs. Also, someone who is hyperthymic will hate being slowed down by drugs, even if they are producing the desired effect of stabilizing mood.

If I were diagnosed as having MDD, I would also want to take Zoloft by itself. If Zoloft monotherapy works, that's great. To try it at this juncture is a reasonable decision. However, if Taylor is bipolar, it is possible that something that acts as a mood stabilizer or anti-manic will be necessary to treat any mood swings, racing thoughts, or agitation that might emerge. Suicidality also occurs in a manic state, especially in mixed-states. The presence of a bipolar mixed-state might explain things.

Hi Scott,

Taylor's pdoc and her therapist haven't given me a definite answer as to whether or not she has bipolar disorder. Having her try Zoloft alone, may show that she either needs a mood stabilizer, or doesn't. That is my hope.

Being on 300mg Seroquel in the hospital, walking into walls, and feeling "zeroed-out" all the time might make anyone dislike the drug. I've also never seen mood swings in her until the meds were introduced. I've also never seen her in a "happy" manic state.

If I watch her closely, ask her how her mood swings are, and work with her therapist & pdoc, (seen weekly) I should know if mood stabilizers are called for or not.

Taylor really only wants the zoloft, and if I show her that I'm willing to let her try it and see how she feels, she may be more willing to try a mood stabilizer if it isn't working for her. (at this point, I'd taper off the 50mg seroquel she's taking)

Thank you!
Laura

> > > > > Hello,
> > > > >
> > > > > This is my first post, so I hope I'm in the right area of the forum. My daughter (13) HAS MDD, and is complaining of mood swings. She was hospitalized as she was consumed with thoughts of suicide 70% of the time. She was given ZOLOFT 100mg, and SEROQUEL (has been on up to 300 mg - but is now down to 50mg) The drop in SEROQUEL made her mood swings severe, and she was cutting more than ever. At higher levels of Seroquel, she'd walk into walls, and not fully wake-up until afternoon. She seems stabilized at 50mg, but is still having some mood swings, not sleeping well, and the suicidal thoughts remain at 10%. (which is remarkable, as she's only been on meds for about 3 mos.)

You see, the chemicals that you are drugging your daughter with, in collaboration with a psychiatrist, have the potential to cause death via what is known as serotonin syndrome, as one way those drugs could kill her. But it is much more than that.

Friends,
If you are a parent and following this discussion, be advised that last year it is generally accepted that 42,000 deaths were attributed to psychiatric drugs. I think that number is under the real number of deaths. A lot of the deaths are of children. There are many reasons for that.
What could be unbeknownst to you is the history of psychiatric drugging that I am prevented from posting here due to the prohibitions posted to me by Mf. Hsiung. I think that if you were allowed to know these facts, that lives could be saved, life-ruining conditions and addictions could be avoided. There are many other facts that I am prohibited to post here also. What this means to you is that you could be led to a false conclusion because facts are not allowed to be posted here by me that if they were known by you, you could IMHHHHO make a more-informed decision as to drug your child or not in collaboration with a psychiatrist/doctor /prescriber.
Here is an article that I would like discussants here to read and there is a video also.

This doesn't even look like a study to me. How many participants were included in this research shown in the graph from 1997 to 2012? The highest "trend of death in Zoloft" in the entire 15 years as depicted by the graph is 217 people. Now, in 2013, (which is only half over) that number jumps to 1,125 people?? That's absurd!

I was told that antidepressants have the ability to increase suicidal thoughts when initially on the medication. I also saw studies myself that no deaths due to suicide happened. I'm sure there are many many studies out there with conflicting outcomes. It was fully explained, and my daughter was in a hospital being monitored.

Here are my facts from the only study I care about right now.

Before meds: My daughter was consumed with suicidal thoughts 70% of her day. She was cutting herself. She stayed in bed and got up only to drag herself to school, spending most of her time there crying. She was receiving CBT weekly for several months before any medication was considered.

After meds: She has suicidal thoughts less than 10% of her day. She is outgoing, spending her time with friends and engaging in activities she enjoys again. Right now she isn't cutting herself. She's made remarkable improvement. (The exceptions being that when tapering off Seroquel too quickly, she started cutting again, had mood swings, and wasn't sleeping as well once again.) She's now experiencing these symptoms at a much lower level, but still needs improvement.

We watch her carefully, and are aware of side effects. I believe that in her case they do outweigh the risks. If we didn't get her on medication, I don't believe she'd be alive right now.

Do I want her on meds long term? Of course not... Do I want her alive? Heck yeah!

Lou,

Where's the study? The graph means nothing, (as stated in my last post) therefore there is only that 1 statement concerning deaths among people who took or were taking Zoloft. Where did this info come from? Depressed people commit suicide. This so called info by no means infers that deaths were caused solely by taking Zoloft. The information also states that these people were taking many other meds, and their diagnoses are not given. This holds no merit.

I do believe it can happen, hence the warning on the med. In many cases the benefit outweighs the risk - did you not read how my daughter greatly improved after she started taking Zoloft? She was already extremely depressed and highly suicidal. I believe strongly that depression causes suicide.

Ironically, the website you keep referring to is funded by the large pharmaceutical companies, where if you look for any information, is pushing major brand name psychiatric medications.

If you have real case studies that prove what you are trying to say, go ahead and send the link.

Laura

Thank you so much Phillipa,

I really wasn't comfortable giving her the Remeron with the Zoloft. When her pdoc called, I told her that I was hoping that I didn't have to give her the Remeron, and she replied, "I thought you wanted her to be able to sleep" I'm thinking, "are ya kiddin' me? You gave her Remeron so she could sleep???" She also told me to do whatever I wanted as it pertained to tapering off the Seroquel. I really think I need a new pdoc. Would you be inclined to agree?

We also tapered off the Seroquel entirely too quickly for Taylor. (dropping 25mg every 4 days) The mood swings it caused were drastic. She's now at 50mg, and we'll taper very very slowly.

When she's on the Zoloft(100mg) only, we'll be better able to determine if bipolar exists, yes?

If we ever get into bipolar meds, I have the feeling that we'll have a long road ahead of us. It was for me; I've been on more than I can count in the past 3 years.

Thank you so much again!
Laura

Actualy, now that you mention it, I did have bizzar nightmares on remeron. I was switching from zyprexa to remeron. I quickly went back on zyprexa. zyprexa is very similar a drug as seroquel, which I've not taken. From what I hear seroquel is more likely to make you tired than zyprexa. zyprexa is used for mood disorders too. Very effective. I've been taking it now 15 years. Great for getting your mind off suicide. Remeron is probably more likely to make tired than zyprexa. For a 13 yo girl it probably would not take much zyprexa, maybe 5-10 mg. I currently take 15mg. I don't know for her, but would not go with the remeron.

Thank you! I was really concerned about giving 2 antidepressants to my daughter who may be bi-polar. She's really been poisoned about Seroquel, and does not want to take it anymore. (although I believe that it was working for her to some degree, I wanted to replace it anyway)

Why did you want to get off of Zyprexa?

I'm going to ask her new pdoc about mood stabilizers for her. I don't think treating mood swings with Zoloft alone is the answer. She seems determined to try it though. As long as she's well enough, the less medication the better.

Thanks!
Laura

How long were you off Zyprexa? I would guess that going off Zyprexa could result in a few days of more intense dreams, if you are able to sleep.

I went off Zyprexa without starting any other drug, and had trouble sleeping for a few weeks. But based on the minor increase in psychotic thinking, I could see having bad dreams if I were able to sleep.

I was not off the zyprexa for very long, every time I go off it its horable and I fall apart. The time with remeron I think I had only gone off z for one day. Since starting z my longest time off it was about 4 months. Which I was house bound and none funtional, not eating or sleeping.

I think my doc wanted me to try switching z for rem, probably to see what my condition was.

Every time I go off z is usualy to lose weight. With out z I don't eat and get very skinny. Taking the right dose of z for my condition (scizoaffective disorder) makes me gain weight. Recently I've found success preventing the weight gain by spliting the daily dose into 2 taken 6 hours appart.

In reply to Re: Remeron and Zoloft for MDD, my 13 yo daughter Zyprexa, posted by laurah952 on July 3, 2013, at 6:40:40

why does she want off seroquel? Is it tiredness, or weight? Zyprexa still makes you tired, which is a very nice aspect of it. I think z is better at mood fixing.

Did you also take z?

zoloft I take with z. I'm taking perphenazine, zyprexa, zoloft and wellbutrin. The wellbutrin is for energy which zyprexa lowers, so does p. I'm not really sure if perphenazine is doing much now. Its an AP too, but not for mood. I guess it was getting me by when I was on a reduced zyprexa. My doc wanted so see if P would replace z, because of weight. The zoloft is deffenetly helping, depression.

No side effects for me with zoloft. Remeron was very sedating. More so than zyprexa and it made me eat like no tomorow. Rem is not the same type of AD (anti-depressant) at zoloft. zoloft is an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor), Rem is an SNRI (norepineprin). I just read that its used for major depression. Norepinephrin is a different type of messenger in brain. Dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrin are the 3. You basicly get a different effect from the 3. If she is bipolar rem probably wont work. Zyprexa, depakote, lamictal, are some that would. Depakote didn't do much for me, at a high dose and no problems stoping it, I was taking zyprexa at time. lamictal didn't help much either. Everyone acts differently to the different meds. One which is good for one could be awful for anouther. Depakote will also put on a lot of weight. Lamictal won't.

Hi,

She strongly believes that Seroquel is no good for her long term. She must have overheard my family talking, and they have a no-medication mentality. We'll see how that goes. She's on 25mg along w/ 100mg Zoloft and is doing pretty well. (Much better than before the meds)

She hasn't been eating much since the meds, and while looking healthy, she's thin, so a weight gainer would be fine.

I have not taken Zyprexa, but I need a boost more than anything right now.

Thanks,
Laura

Hi Scott,

I need something better for depression and fatigue/motivation.

Maybe I just need to resume my exercise routine. (I was in a serious car accident in December, and am only getting back to normal physically.) During my recovery, my daughter's own depression was revealed - not a good combination for my well being, so I'll push myself to get started again before adding or changing meds.

If that doesn't work, perhaps a higher dose of Cymbalta, something to add to it, or a new AD.


Thanks - Laura
