I have taken Keppra for 12 years, and recently have been sleeping all day, very anxious, having social trouble (no friends, no family relations), masturbating a lot, having frequent suicidal wishes and have lost interest in life. I am 54, jobless, living with my mother. Depressing life...

Hi Karl,
We reviewed your message and sympathize with your pain and frustration.
However, as you know, many alternatives exist to address these issues.
First, before taking the referenced medications, please talk to your physician and let them clearly know how you feel. In many cases, therapy and, if needed medication, have successfully treated your condition and have led to happy productive lives.
Suicide is permanent. You should try every available option to prevent a decision that is totally avoidable and will bring so much additional misery to you, your family and friends.
If you haven't done so, consult one of the many support sites to see what has helped others in your situation; e.g. www.suicide.org (Suicide Prevention, Awareness and Support line).
If this doesn't provide the support you require, please contact a respected suicide help line such as 1-800-273-TALK, or 1-800-999-9999 to discuss your situation with trained medical professionals and get their advice.
There is always a better alternative, even if you don't see it now. In years looking back, you will be extremely grateful that you sought other solutions.
Please keep in touch and let us know which option was successful.

Best wishes,
The Treato Team

I just started vistiril about 3 weeks ago, maybe4. I'm 33 and have had alot of chest pains still re occurring and they call it anxiety and panic so far. I'm not so sure the vistiril and lexapro are working cause its still just as bad as it was 4 wks ago. The vistiril does not make me or help me sleep but I have noticed that I sure am eating alot more and craving sweets alot. This is all new to me. Can I get some feed back

My obgyn prescribed this drug because I am having increased hot flashes even being on estrodol. With everyone saying they have gained weight with it I cannot afford to gain more weight so I will wait on trying it. May have to suffer through some hot flashes. Why can't they find something that causes weight loss as a side effect

I couldn't figure out why I have gained so much weight! I have always used a rescue inhaler without any issues. About 7 months ago my doctor put me on Spiriva and since then I have gain 35 pounds! I never put the 2 together. However it helps me greatly! About s week or two ago once I realized it is the Spiriva, I tried stopping it but found I needed my rescue inhaler several times throughout the day. With Spiriva I barley need it. But this weight gain has to stop. It is making me extremely depressed. I don't want to be social, I have lost my confidence! I have to stop taking this, but how?

Cimzia and weight gain
I've been on Cimzia for about 5 years for Crohns disease. My weight gain went from 170 lbs to 215 lbs. I look like I'm pregnant which I'm not. Very bloated! I talked to my doctors and they said eat a high protein diet. Easier said than done. The doctors really don't care about the weight gain side effects as long as the medicine works. Let me know if anyone has had any success with cimzia and losing weight
