4182046 tn?1355820039 I gor diagnosed with depression and anxiety and age 16, three years later here I am and pregnant! I stopped my medication as soon as I found out (20 mg citalopram) but my anxiety and depression are so bad, I really feel like I need my medication. Has anyone taken citalopram or another antidepressent while pregnant? pros and cons?
Avatar f tn My question is can some of the lack of interest in doing anything be due to depression and not possible MS itself? Would anti depressants help? Has anyone gone through these kind of feelings and what did you do for help?
Avatar n tn How to deal with depression when your pregnant? I have two kids and a third on the way. We were suppose to be getting married! Our kids being an official family.

1225178 tn?1318980604 depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain that medication can correct. According to the chemical imbalance theory, low levels of the brain chemical serotonin lead to depression and depression medication works by bringing serotonin levels back to normal. However, the truth is that researchers know very little about how antidepressants work.
Avatar f tn I've been told anything other then Tylenol or prenatals can hurt the baby. Read up on the medication. The ER doctor I saw when I found out I was pregnant (we didn't think we could have kids so it was the last thought on my mind when I had symptoms) prescribed me an anti nausea medicine only for me to look it up & see all the stuff it can do to a baby. No thanks! Do research yourself!
Avatar m tn My mother is 67yrs old, recently the doctor advised her to take both Serta 25 and stalopam plus, both are anti depression medicines. But her blood pressure is normal. can some one help me know why she had been prescribed two anti depression medicines.
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.
Avatar f tn Are there ANY anxiety/depression meds that are allowed to take during pregnancy?
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 f tn I am seeing a professional therapist, and he is recommending anti depressants. I think my depression is caused by a mix of genetics (depression runs in my family) and my life situation. Lately my depression seems to be getting worse, I feel like i've lost interest in a lot of things that I used to enjoy, often I don't want to get out of bed, I cannot see the good in anything, I only focus on the bad, and lately I have been having more suicidal thoughts.
Avatar f tn a lot of people are sensitive to anti-depressants and others medication. i would talk to your doctor and try and find a medication that doesn't make make you feel sick, so you can get some benefits. :) Good luck.
Avatar f tn And is there any evidence that taking anti-depression medication reduces the symptoms from having chronic back pain? I have been taking these meds for a short duration now and find that I seem to feel alittle bit better when taking them. Maybe mentially anyway.

1370534 tn?1279510604 My psychiatrist is going to put me on an anti-psychotic (a mood stabilizer) along with my anti-depressants. I'm hoping this will help to control my terrible mood swings. I always feel like I am on an emotional rollercoaster...
Avatar f tn does anyone know anything about celexa? for depression I have been on wellbution 300 mg lexapro paxil ... i can't find anything that continues to work for my depression. It seems to work for a little while and then stops. Or maybe it's just me? my diagnosis is bipolar 2 although sometimes I think it's bipolar1 with depression. I never have any energy and i feel trapped in my house. I am very antisocial. I don't want to be. I just cant help it .
Avatar m tn He was very good and after a couple of meetings he prescribed me with medication for what he called a chemical imbalance in my brain that caused depression. The meds worked and I definitely wasn't as sad most of the time. So for seven years I've taken meds. More recently I've started to feel, emotionless and even angry (on the inside). Im not suicidal like I was in middle school, but I definitely don't feel good.
Avatar f tn Hey Megan, I am 72 years old and after 20 years of being on anti depressants, I am now free of all medication. Like you I have been on many different anti depressants over the years. I took Zoloft for quite a few years, and it worked well for me. It is just that my doctor thought I needed a change. I understand that St John's Wort works for people with mild depression, so it may be worth a try. I have never tried it myselof.
Avatar n tn It also sounds like the weight gain could have been triggered by medication, or depression. 40 is not to young to experience a lot of this.
1673455 tn?1305212120 Your taking prozac which is more suited to depression rather than OCD.A better medication that worked for me and my ocd was paxil.Just a suggestion.All the best.
Avatar f tn I am on day 6 cold turkey off percocets. I realize the underlying issue is depression/coping. Today I saw a NP and was prescribed Saphris 5mg SL every night and started on Lamictal with a tapering increase in dose over the next month. Im not comfortable with the Saphris though,,,its an "atypical antipsychotic" and used for people with Bipolar I disorder and schizophrenia?????
5894884 tn?1386969571 t want to take any medicine but my depression and anxiety got so bad all I could do is sleep with my second I was on anti depression medicine the entire pregnancy and my son is a perfectly happy health three year old and I am a happy momma
Avatar m tn Lowering a medication to discontinue it should be under a psychiatrist's supervision at the exact rate. I've ran into problems myself in the past doing it on my own. Its definitely not a good idea. Zyprexa is an antipsychotic used as a mood stabilizer. Lithium of course is a mood stabilizer. Neither are specifically anti-depressents though they would have some anti-depressent effect.
