Avatar n tn m not familiar with how many anti-depression medications that a person can take at one time and why they would be. Currently this person is taking Trazodone (100mg), Celexa (40mg), and Buspirone HCL (15mg). After looking up each of these medications I see that two are for anti-depression and one for antianxiety. I originally thought this person was just taking sleeping pills at night. This person instantly falls to sleep and doesn't move all night.

Note he takes anti depression meds because of mood swings from his diabetes highs and lows. Also note he refers to this medication as chill pills. I am wondering if his thinking is off on this and is this really helping at all or just a waste of additional medication in his system? Also unfortunately he does this also with other medications he takes for his diabetes as well.

1031354 tn?1253270209 The Olanzapine which I was taking acted as an anti-d aswell as an anti-p, she prescibed 10mg of Olanzapine rather than 20mg. I previously stopped taking the 20mg because of the swelling of feet, face, hands etc. 10mg should be much better. Slept for most of the day. Paul had the day off and so helped with the kids. I've arranged another meeting at The Priory to attend for Depression. These are held once a month and i'll be going to that one in a couple of weeks.

Avatar n tn I have been taking an anti-depression pill for several months, tried Paxil and they did not work for me. Iam taking Nortriptyline at the present time and do not see any favorable results.

Avatar n tn Zyprexa is used as an anti-psychotic, yes, and this is what it was first developed for, but it was also approved by the FDA in March of this year as a mood stabilizer for bipolar depression.

Avatar n tn I am a mom of two adorable boys but I have in the past (and presently) suffer from depression. Getting through my last two pregnancys without meds was extremely difficult. While on meds I can say (without bragging too much) that I am a great mom (as great as any mom can be - we all have our days). Depression like everything else is a disease and it is horrible. I LOVE kids. I want SO MUCH to have another child.
Avatar m tn old male that has had varying stages of depression for yrs. After trying at least 7 different anti-depressants over the last 7+ yrs that did not help, I had my testosterone level checked. I found that my testosterone level was low, but in the "normal" range. One thing about the testo ranges is that some people have almost 10 times as much, but all seem to be "normal" numbers. That just did not seem right to me, so I talked my MD into taking self injections of testosterone.
541196 tn?1293552936 I was on Effexor XR and when I told my doctor that I was planning on starting a family soon she told me that only Prozac and Celexa are good anti-depressants to be on while pregnant, but you can't breastfeed while on any anti-depressants.
Avatar n tn Pain management is quite difficult sometimes, particularly when depression is mixed in. Depression tends to make pain worse, and pain can make people more depressed. To top it off, medications for pain and/or depression often have cognitive side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, unsteadiness, and occasionally even hallucinations. Finding the right combination is too complex for a forum like this. You are in the care of a psychiatrist and a neurologist. I think that is an excellent plan.
