Avatar f tn Personally given what you say, I wouldn't be taking anything other than possibly a light anti-anxiety drug then. Anxiety about starting treatment and work stress hard to focus etc is much different than what SSRI"s are intended for...clinical depression. Clinical depression is a life altering serious disease that needs powerful medication to help with. The normal life stuff usually is not a reason to take one of these meds than can very often have serious sides and some long lasting..
Avatar n tn It has been used for bipolar, and is known to have antideppresant properties. It also seems to have anti-anxiety properties. While not yet accepted for unipolar depression, two recent medical studies showed some promise, which is how I ended up on it. Good luck finding a good doctor. It took me a long time to find one who would listen to me and be willing to be aggresive at treatment.
Avatar f tn Well I don't suffer from depression and take a 30mg anti-depressant called Zispin. Why? Because it is known to work well for anxiety. People who suffer from depression seem to hate the tablet. Makes them tired all day and gives them bad nightmares at night. Oddly I only get the nightmares. Which I don't mind. So it shows the effects certain forms of medication can have on people with various conditions. I once tried Exfexor and it blew me away. Made me much worse. That's another anti-depressant.
163305 tn?1333672171 He also was taking 22 different medications, including powerful anti-psychotics and anti-seizure drugs that are dangerous even for adults. side effects you think ( included ) 'committing suicide, dreams, yelling, screaming, going crazy, pain, suffering, seeing things, delusions, hallucinations.' The medicine was killing him. He'd had a grand mal seizure that lasted an hour and a half. He'd been in an ambulance 45 times in the last year.
Avatar f tn hi this is my first post i was first told by my doctor i was suffering from panic and anxiety around 3 yrs ago i was put on a anti depressant but was changed a while later because i lost a lot of weight and things improved but then around 5 months ago i started getting short of breath for no reason so i went to the doctors and they said it was my asthma playing up just take my blue inhaler as needed, that didnt help so went back again and i have suffered from hayfever before and recently i went
480448 tn?1426952138 ONE important thing to remember that I learned, and have never forgotten is that these two effects CANNOT exist without anxiety.....but that anxiety can exist without these sensations. Derealization is basically a change, an alteration in the PERCEPTION or experience of the external other words...everything LOOKS very strange, very "unreal" (movie like, in my experiences). Depersonalization is a subjective experience of unreality of one's self. So the difference is...

Avatar n tn 5 minutes with my GP the next day left me with the name of a condition I couldn't remember after leaving and a prescription for anti-inflammatory drugs. I was confused for a bit, but after some research I found it was for inflammation of the cartilage around the rib cage area. I was very relieved as I have a huge history of irregular heartbeats. Seems like it's fairly common if very painful...
Avatar f tn My daughter had to stop chasing him, and I had to put him on an anti-anxiety med, for now. He's on Amitriptyline HCI 10mg. It's a gel that I rub on his ear once a day. The pooping stopped after 10 days.
685623 tn?1283485207 Advil, Aleve and Motrin) Topping our Top 10 list are common household medications called non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), which include common names such as ibuprofen (e.g., Advil and some types of Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve). While these medications are safe for people, even one or two pills can cause serious harm to a pet. Dogs, cats, birds and other small mammals (ferrets, gerbils and hamsters) may develop serious stomach and intestinal ulcers as well as kidney failure.
Avatar n tn Samter is comprised of nasal polyps, aspirin sensitivity and asthma, referred to more commonly these days as, aspirin-sensitive asthma. The ingestion of aspirin or the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), most notably ibuprofen, results in worsening of both nasal polyps and the asthma. You have provided a nicely detailed description of your problems. Most notable is the temporal relationship between your moving into a new house and the onset of respiratory problems.
544292 tn?1268886268 It's causing me anxiety. The accident itself cause some post traumatic accident anxiety. I finally just turned the whole thing over to an attorney I know fairly well. Sorry lawyer Lady, I'm going to make a crack and say, "Yeah, but how well can you ever know a Lawyer?" He's a PI attorney so ... Ok so here's what happens that I attribute to the way Tramadol has re-wired and re-fired my brains. Physical pain onset.
3242988 tn?1359310116 from my peripheral vision. I think I see a person or one of my cats, its like a shadowy figure. Then when I look, its not there. This only happens in my house where I live with my elderly parents & my cats. This happens at least 3-4 times a day. I heard that that was a side effect from someone going off of drugs. Is this happening to any of you? I know it's not real, but, it is really annoying. I think it has to do with memory. I'm still having problems with my mind & nerves.
Avatar f tn Oh yeah, will, I know all about those anxiety reactions. I've had that with every anti-D except Effexor. Right now I'm on Lamicital for SUPPOSED bipolarII and Clonazepam, which I just read should not be used in patients with glaucoma. I have glaucoma! Good grief! Do these docs not listen to us? I have told my psych. about glaucoma. Seems a lot of drugs are bad for the liver, but that is certainly no surprise.
929371 tn?1244269113 Obsessive thinking is common to all mental disorders, including anxiety and depression, but if there's no compulsive behavior accompanying the thinking you don't have OCD, you just have severe anxiety. So the drugs you're taking may not be treating what you actually have, which might just be a bad anxiety condition.
Avatar m tn We put up certain defense mechanisms when we're young just to survive, but as you get older, this stuff has to get processed or it manifests itself in numerous ways (addiction, anxiety, cutting, rage, etc. etc. etc.) Have you ever tried it? It sounds like alot of toxic emotions are "living" inside your body, although you may not be concious of it (not to sound psychobabbly - but I believe it's very true...) If not, I would try it bud...
6603061 tn?1385320514 I like walking, writing poetry, going to movies, dancing, drawing, painting, working in my flower garden, eating healthy, not abusing drugs or alcohol and above all I have cats that are very therapeutic for me. They are always around when others are not. I also have a supportive family that have helped me to deal with my struggles. It is a combination of all these that have helped me and right now I am trying to wean myself off of any depression drugs to see if I can do it without.
Avatar n tn I do know people who have benefited from anti-anxiety medication with no side effects. There is always the exception I guess. And, you sound just the way I did up until about a month ago when I began to realize that maybe I can't lick this alone. I don't know anything about charcoal but will do a search. Gastritis is a different disease (if it can be called that) from GERD or hiatal hernia. Some of the treatment protocols are similar but not entirely.
667008 tn?1231130069 Look I agree with you about the pharmaceutical industry but please don't refer to anti-anxiety medication as "dope". Anxiety disorder is real and needs treatment. There are natural remedies that can help. Its just there are concerns about interactions and if someone is waiting for a kidney transplant then its of extreme importance. Even if she is using natural remeedies they are still treating anxiety disorder.
2012984 tn?1330279947 Lexapro is a very good anxiety/anti-depressant medication that can help you feel normal again. It does not leave you feeling stoned or craving more. The doctor will help you get set up with the right dosage for you. It’s one pill daily and if you later are ready to give it a try without Lexapro withdrawals are very difficult but possible with help of your doctor you can taper off. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn MALe 21Ok people i need help by a proffesional been to 3 doctors er had advise on here read alot of peoples anxiety forums i do admit now i have anxiety started 6 months ago now my question is i can do stuff like go out and stuff the only thing that is bothering me is that i have been feeling like my body or the objects around me are unsteady i feel like when im on a rollercoaster and i just got off and tryed to stand still ok now since i described my feeling as i feel it right now on my chair
1356964 tn?1302091035 Vet said to finish bag of Royal Canin s/o (month's supply) and then slowly transition him back to some regular food. After much research I decided on Wysong Uretic and also was giving all of my cats canned, mainly Natural Balance Duck & pea, chicken and pea, also Evo Chicken & Turkey... I also bought two stainless steel pet drinking fountains, along with having water bowls sitting in various places in the house. I also bought one of those Feliway diffusers to help with anxiety, etc..
203342 tn?1328740807 spray and used that constantly. I took her back to the vet and she said it's now a behavioral issue and suggested an anti-depressant/anxiety medication that could help with the urinating or marking behavior. She also recommended something called "Feliway" which is something you plug in your outlet that sends out something that's supposed to calm cats. It's very expensive but I tried it. We also put her on Buspirone. That was 11 days ago and she's worse!
Avatar f tn Oh, yes, I forgot to mention that I adore cats and always had cats in my house , however I was told I was allergic to cat hair! And my doctor told me to 'get red of the cat'! Just like that! So just imagine life without the food that you like and without the pets you love, what is the point of living then?? I cant even drink a glass of wine to find some comfort evry once in a while.. It seems to me that no effort is being made to research and find answers to allergies.
Avatar m tn I have no reason to think anything is wrong really, even though sometimes my mind makes me think I feel somthing where my liver is but I don't really think there is anything going on. I will say that my anxiety (only at night) has not let up and it is driving me crazy as my heart is pounding and behind my sternum is twitching. My heart don't race, it only pounds. I know it is anxiety because I will try to listen for my heart and that is all it takes to set it off.
Avatar f tn Yoga is good stuff,practiced regularly an anti-depressant isn't needed....neither is the anti-anxiety agent....KEEP IT GOING LADY! All of us here w/sober time had 5 days once...its all one hour at a day at a time as cliche as it sounds but so true!
Avatar n tn I've noticed lately that my energy level has really grown but my anxiety and depressive tendances have increased to levels prior to tx. I can get pissed off big-time at the drop of a hat or I can crawl into a corner for weeks and not want to see or talk to anyone. It's literaturly driving me to drink. Really strange? Never was like this b4. Has anyone else experienced things like this after Peg/Intron combo? Sherring was amazed to hear this when I contacted them.
Avatar f tn she also had IBD so maybe there was some bowel pain involved?..we tried everything from anti anxiety meds(buspar) to prednisone nothing the end the steroids made her very ill and she had to be put down, so be very cautious in this use. If it is stress the feliway should have helped, I use it for another cat for territorial spraying and it helps! If this is a food allergy(and it could be) I'm not familiar with purina one food?...
