953190 tn?1276519634 So, if you'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 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 f tn It is heartbreaking to read the pain and suffering we are all going through. I have been doing battle with major depression since the age of 13. I am 55 now, so I can easily relate to most here. I feel the absolute truth in what people are saying. I come here to learn how other people cope, what they have tried, not tried, and why. But I have questions. How did we as a group of depressed individuals get to be so huge in number? Why are there so many of us? This in itself is depressing.
Avatar f tn Hey Everybody, I wanted to send an update on getting help for my depression. As of today 4-16-2012 I am still having a horrible time getting anytype of help. I have called my insurance company on numerous occassions to find a doctor that treats adults using ECT. So far I have just got a big run around, they give me the names of doctors and of course they do not treat adults with ECT. I am just about at the end of my rope with these people that work for my insurance company.
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.
Avatar f tn I used to spell OK, but now it is getting worse. But I don't worry about it, or think it is due to my medication. What anti-depressant are you on?
Avatar m tn The way you described your current symptoms is exacty how I felt before I started taking AD medication. My Depression made me feel exausted, forgetful, Anxious, and dark all the time. I also had tried 3 months on Cymbalta and it did little for me too. What other meds besides Welbutrin, Lexapro and Cymbalta have you tried?
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 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 n tn Posting another question about back to backache forum, but thought you should know as they could be related. Tried anti-inflamitories, pain-killers (which simply put me to bed for 6 hours), and muscle relaxers (which mildly help for a little). My nuerologist wants to put me on anti-depressants! Is this crazy?! Never heard of chonic headaches being linked to depression.
Avatar n tn However, I am in the midst of another major episode of depression. Doctors hesitate to increase or augment the anti-depressant medication, as the effexor is already at maximum dosage. I too worry about liver toxicity of the anti-depressants, but I desperately need something to treat my depression. I am constantly fatigued, which adds to the depression. My younger brother died in 1991 at age 25 shortly after diagnosis of hepatitis -- I am estranged from my family so don't know the type.
773980 tn?1257401525 Hi Everyone, My Names Carrie im 22 and just gone 22 Weeks Pregnant due a little Girl around Oct 3rd time. Before i found out i was Pregnant i was Engaged to be Married and things seemed Really good for me appart from the Fact that my Big Brother was and still is in Hospital (over a year now).
Avatar f tn Well, my doctor ended up not putting me on an anti-depressant. He thinks I need anti-anxiety medication more. So he gave me a prescription for Klonopan. Haven't taken it yet since I have some Xanax to go thru first and my dr. told me to start the Klonopan after my "stash" of Xanax is used up. Thanks for your advice.
Avatar m tn you have to find the right psychologist, and the right medication. i suggest going to a different anti-depressent called Paxil, i'm sure you've heard of it, saved my life. while on this medicine, i do not feel an ounce of depression. i feel fulfilled, confident, well-rounded, and HAPPY. take that from someone who's depression was probably worse than yours. it may not work for everyone, but i would highly reccomend talking to a doctor about it.
Avatar n tn (i don't want to be on oxy if i don't have to) i've never expierenced this level of post physical depression. is there something about oxy that gives it more of an emotional "buzz saw" than other opiate withdrawal? it seems to me there is, as i've expierenced withdrawl from other opiates and all though they were physically more unpleasent, there was not this compent of emotional. i'm already taking 400 mg of welbutronn a day, and that seems to help some.
Avatar n tn However your family member should understand that it's the drugs that are altering his mental faculties and it needs to be addressed the same way any of his other side effects get addressed. It's a temporary thing. Only once in my life did I ever take medication for depression and only for a short time. I didn't need any anti-depressants while on treatment but after treatment was done, I plunged into a very dark and brutal depression and I did go on medication then.
Avatar m tn Hi there, So my doctor has put me on Edronax 4mg to treat endogenous depression. I'm taking one pill each morning. I can't take them at night because I can't sleep-the energy they provide keeps me up all night. After 3 days, I'm finding that I'm already feeling better mentally, although the sweating and tingling is quite bizarre. Unfortunately I've just found out that the sexual side effects are quite severe in my case.
Avatar n tn If morning sickness is a defense mechanism against the ingestion of toxins, the prescribing of anti-nausea medication to pregnant women may have the undesired side effect of causing birth defects or miscarriages by encouraging harmful dietary choices.[9] Woman who do not have morning sickness have a higher rate of miscarriage and birth defects.
Avatar n tn I have been taking depression medication for about a month, my doctor added another medication about a week ago. Even before the second medication I have been having some problems, I have been having crazy thoughts that I cannot get out of my mind. the more I try to get rid of the thoughts the more they are there. I know in my heart I will never hurt anyone, but these thoughts drive me to the point being sick. I don't want to be around anyone including my family.
Avatar m tn This begins to effect how they function at work and their abilty to interact with others as things become such an effort that you cannot remember people's names and things. It sounds that your depression was quite severe in that it caused that much disability for you in your life.
Avatar m tn Had a serious bout of depression and anxiety lasting approximately one month. I thought it was due to the Prednisone. Current symptoms, some of which have been going on for 2 weeks (and under): Started weekend of February 20th - feelings of light headed, some slight "floaty" feeling. I should note that time of year is the 2 year anniversary of a very sudden and traumatic divorce for me. Scalp tingles sometimes, band of tension around head sometimes.
439168 tn?1307935340 I've been stuck on the same medication for years because every time I try a new medication, it freaks me out or has wierd side affects. I really am a poor example. I've been taking Lithium 300mg, Paxil 40, and Clonezepam .10 mg a day forever (the past 8 years at least) . . . I know other medications would be more affective but it's so hard to change as medications like Paxil and Clonezepam are addictive in your system and you feel the affects when you quit taking them . . .
Avatar n tn My daugher has been taking Zoloft for 2 months, started at 50mg, now at 100mg of Zoloft for servere depression, panic attacks, anxiety.It is helping in that she is out of bed, has energy. But she is still suffering from anxiety, tingly feeling in her legs, eats all the time, craves candy [taffy] and has feelings of disconnectiveness.
Avatar n tn Had serious riba rage at 2nd week, punched and pulled sons hair, call him horrible names. Wife had to intervene, threatened to call police and then left. Later reconciled, husband said he would get help, like anti depressants from doc, didn't do it. According to wife, husband had suicidal thoughts after incident. What do you suggest we as family members do? now teyt act like nothing has happened. we are concerned son will be hurt again, or husband will hurt himself.
Avatar f tn I am very new to this forum and I am stil trying to figure out my own situation but I just took myself off of my anti d's. I have always felt that my depression was a result of hashimotos. I am trying to get my thyroid adjusted before any anti d's. Also I eat a lot of walnuts for serotonin and they really do help with the depression. I would encourage getting your thyroid adjusted first. Then seeing if you are still feeling depressed.
Avatar m tn The other bipolar diagnoses are not true bipolar, and many aren't even remotely related to bipolar disorder. They're just names for depression that is manifested a certain way. They are not psychoses. They are treated exactly the same as any other depression, either in therapy or with medication or both. Some of these diagnoses were developed so psychiatrists could get insurance coverage. Most were developed to get patents on drugs.
1212489 tn?1270144940 I do work for a pain management practice and you do not want to go in requesting a certain medication or throwing out names. That will throw up a red flag. I will not suggest the scs because I know how you feel about that. Our docs believe in treating the patient as a whole. We have psychologist, neurologist and pain docs. They believe that patients with chronic pain, also have a form of depression and anxiety.
Avatar n tn // The anti-cholesterol medication Lovaza is being studied as well as well. I am on an anti-psychotic agent that is in Phase II FDA study. Science is still determing the results. Its an unknown quantity. But there are FDA approved medications that could and would be prescribed off label for bipolar by a mood disorders specialist.
Avatar m tn I would take your medication and find another therapist. Depression robs us of everything and makes us feel like giving up. You need to fight back with everything thing you have....... including medication. Again, you are faced with a choice, and you want to make the one that will benefit you most. Trying to do this on one's own never works, and that's okay. Accept the help you're being offered, and take back your life.
