Menopause, night sweats, mood swings, loss of appetite. Champix, Seroquel, Remeron, lorazapem prescribed. What could this be?

Last year around this time I took Champix for two weeks and then I started taking some herbal remedies for menopause for night sweats and some maca. When two months passed I realized I had a been manic so I stopped taking everything. Then I crashed really bad...mood depressed, couldn't sleep more then 3-4 hours and a hightened sensation in my head upon waking...lost my appetite and started throwing up. So I finally went to ER and they put me on Seroquel for 2 months, it was awful. Starting seeing phsychiatrist and was put on Remeron and some lorazapem for depression and sleep. But the sensation in my head has subsided somewhat but won't go away. Always there....feels like a cool numbness on the top left side of my head...what could this be?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi there, thanks for asking. the numbness in you head upon rising could be related to sleep inadequacy (insomnia). Insomnia happens when somebody's depression has been managed incompletely or if she has some degrees of anxiety left which has not been addressed with antidepressant. On the other hand if you are obese and you are in menopause, you may have some degrees of sleep apnea. It is a common problem, especially in overweight people. I suggest you ask your doctor about these issues. best wishes.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The issue is a sure Psychiatric problem
Menopause - if any - has a secondary / supplementary role only...
Numbness on the top of head is a typical aspect of anxiety.
Don't worry - you WILL become better / it is a question of time / the dose and the drugs need to be tailored to you - that is all.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
