[TRIGGER] I was previously taking Zoloft for about 3 weeks when I had a hospitalization involving overdose. My Dr then added Trazedone and Risperidone for my PTSD. Now I am having all kinds of crazy symptoms and cant put my finger on why. I"m thinking about stopping my meds because I've already had 1 suicide atttempt (never happened before meds) and I felt better when I was just feeling a little depressed, I wish I could go back in time now. My symptoms now are irritability, confusion, nausea and vomiting, sweating, uncontrollable body/eye twitches, restlessness and faster heartbeat.

Will it ever END?!

TRIGGER - Hey Rosiev, I hate you are going through this. I am not a doctor but it sounds like you need to go to the hospital ER. you may be having a severe reaction to the medications. that way you will be safe for the night. if you cannot drive yourself, call an ambulance.

I am here if you want to talk, but i think the er would be a better place due to all your syptoms.

Please let us know what you decide and how you are doing when you get a chance.

I agree with NF you should seek medical attention, it does sound like a severe reaction to your medication. I hope you are ok since you haven't posted again.
