Has anyone been presribed prozac for raynauds and if so, has it been effective in reducing attacks?
This is interesting and been studied about twenty years.
I’ve had overall improvement in Raynaud’s and cold/heat Intolerance using PEA (palmitoyethanolimide), a mast cell stabilizer (Vitalitust) recently.
Here is a search of updated info on fluoxetine, nifedipine, PEA...and Raynaud’s
PEA (few side effects)
I dont think the dr understands that Raynauds is an involuntary spasm of vessels- whether calm or not people with this syndrome go into this awful, damaging to the skin phenomenon.
Nothing has ever helped but gloves.
Thanks so much @A MyLupusTeam Member. I cant tolerate Amlodipine or nifedipine - after years of being on 2.5 mg of Amlodipine for raynauds, I got an incorrect dose of 10 mg and it caused severe edema. Now the edema comes back immediately when I take either of them so am in search of something different.
Appreciate the info and the links!
That's interesting., with nifedepine. For so long nifedepine worked for me. The it stopped and I started getting grey black fingers. But i would just say make sure you can tolerate SSRIs. I dont tolerate them. I get shakes and headaches and fever.
