What causes irritation and mood swings while on Escitalopram?
More amisulpiride may increase the problem
Thanks for using Healthcaremmagic.
I read your query and undersrttand your coioncerns.
Trichotillomania (pulling of hairs) is obsessive compulsive spectrum disorder which responds best with SSRI group of medications. Esscirtalopram is one among them and required dose is 20 mg in most patients.
In case you increased to 15 mg just few days back than it is better to wait for few weeks say 4-6 weeks totral affter increase of dose.
In case 4-6 weeks already passed than it is time to increase escitaopram 20 mg.
I do not think amisulpiride may help in this regard as it ,may increase the probvlem.
I hope this helps you.
If you have more questions feel free to write back to me.
Thanks and regards.
There is good chance with escitalopram
Thanks for reverting back to me.
Excessive thinking and sadness also respond to antidepressant and escitalopram is good choice. I guess you will respond to it.
Regarding antipsychotic I do not think you need to change as none of your symptoms indicate change of medication in regard to psychotic symptoms.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for my future patients.
