Avatar f tn You should probably see your GP again and see if taking the medication helps with your memory. Also, exercise can help depression (and accordingly memory) a great deal so see if you can't increase how much you exercise. I hope this is helpful.

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.

953190 tn?1276516034 re depressed again, I would definitely go back on this medication. Always keep in mind that every medication works differently in different individuals. Every situation and body is unique, so go by what you know has worked for you.
Avatar f tn I am currently looking for a new depression medication. I need some info on something that is NOT a SSRI, a hormone, and is not zoloft, celexa, or prozac......also something that does not contain salicylic acid aka aspirin. If anyone can help I would appreciate the help.
Avatar f tn Im on medication for depression and anxiety. Also occasionally I have a sedative in case I go bizzercerz. Would that hurt my child more than stress would?
Avatar f tn I assume you mean you're taking an antidepressant and you feel it has affected your ability to focus and concentrate? If so, if the drug is new to you this might go away. If it's not new to you and this has been going on for awhile, it might be that this med isn't the right one for you. You might want to bring this up with your psychiatrist.
Avatar f tn Protozan is an herbal used for depression, and amoryn a natural formula for depression. These remedies are not regulated like medications, although they are starting to look closer at them. They may have some serious side effects that are unknown, and I would avoid them. If you feel depressed, I agree that you need to see a psychiatrist to determine this, and he would know if medication is needed or maybe just therapy or both.
Avatar m tn im sick of getting panic attacks even with the valium and ativan,,,, ive been one or the other for a year now , im just wondering if theres an anti drpessant for anxiety attacks, that is weaker than paxil or prozac? i was on paxil before and i didnt like tha way it made me feel. im just sick of feeling like this?
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 the best way would be to treat the depression by talking to a councillor and take meds for the svt, you cant take medication for depression because the meds can cause irregular heart rythm and this wouldnt be good to mix with heart problems, you should be looking into loosing weight if you're diabetic because you are more at risk of heart disease, good luck

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 m tn I will give the antidepressants a little longer and take it from there. Which anti anxiety medication do you take and how helpful has it been for you? The antidepressants don't seem to do much but the Valium gives me some relif. I've been taking the Valium once in the morning for about 10 weeks. Well I'm off to get my second run on Lexapro as I'm out. Iv'e also found that Clanazapan is sold under a different brand name here, so maybe that will be a better option for me.
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.
1722607 tn?1335747858 Either of these drugs (Paxil or Zoloft) could be used for anxiety and either could be used for depression. I know there are more but without researching I cannot remember the names. I think if you tell your doctor you want something that is not addicting, hopefully he/she will know not to prescribe benzodiazipines but rather proscribe a medication like Zoloft. I think Zoloft is considered safe in liver disease but I am not certain about Paxil.
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...
2195245 tn?1338428182 Hi, Zoom1012, Right now, these are the only two; can you give us the names of other anti-retrovirals that you think should be included? We'll pass those along to our developers, but in the meantime, you can use the tracker's journal to specify any other meds you're taking. Thanks for the suggestion!
Avatar n tn "Flu-like" symptoms: -Bodyaches -Loss of appetite Depression: -Usually treated with SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), a type of anti-depressant that encourages your body to produce more serotonin by blocking its reabsorbtion by the brain stem. Some doctors will start patients on this before starting treatment. Interferon has been known to cause life-threatening depression and is the reason this medication carries a 'black box' warning.
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.
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?????
