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.

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 m tn That's unusual because there are a variety of classes of anti-depressants that work in very different manners. The site "Depression Central" has full information on what is available but I would suggest the best thing to do is see a mood disorders specialist and see if they could determine if there is any medication you could take that you would react to better including medications that are FDA approved but in clinical study as anti-depressants.
Avatar n tn i'm using zoloft (vitamin Z), and it's hard to say from my perspective. I was on Z when I started abusing hydrocodone. I tried weaning from zoloft sometime ago, before hc, and it was hard, different from opiate withdrawals. As "worried" mentioned, could help with the depression, if it surfaces. i recommend asking your doc.
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.

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 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?????
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 f tn and as for all the ads on zofran linked to birth defects unfortunately any medication we take while pregnant can cause them! For me zofran saved me and my sons life.
520191 tn?1355635402 Then from there ask about the specific side effect profile and efficacy of each one as regards its effect on depression and you could also look up the medication website. From what I am reading Amisulpride like Seroquel does have a mood stabilization effect and actually has shown efficacy on depresion though only a psychiatrist would understand this in full.
Avatar n tn Antidepressants CAN alleviate depression as it works on the chemicals in the brain. Good diet, good sleep hygiene is helpful but will not change neurotransmitters. However, most antidepressants have the side effect of decreasing your sex drive.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Clinical Depression and Generalized Anxiety Disorder as well as Social Anxiety in September 2010, I'm now seeing a therapist who may soon refer me to a psychiatrist who will prescribe me medication. I'm currently 15 years old and I'm wondering if I should wait to be prescribed anything? My therapist told me it's up to me/my parents if I want to try it or not. Should I just continue with the therapy and try the meds or not?
Avatar m tn I am a 45 year old male. I have suffered depression all of my life, feeling sad as far back into childhood as I can remember. I spent many, many years self-medicating (alcohol+drugs). I know for me, I have tried 16 different anti-depressants and other than the ones that gave me severe nausea and the ones that made me feel like a walking Zombie (Effexor, Seroquel and Olanzapine), the others did nothing.
Avatar f tn But anyways, I was wondering if I could take the two or should I just take the anti-depressant and see how I do without the melatonin and then maybe add it in. or should I ask my doctor..
Avatar m tn i was originally diagnosed with depression then changed drs and they diagnosed me with bipolar 2. i have been on numerous meds. ifwhat you are on is making you have these episodes you most likely could have bipolar. if you dont trust your healthcare professional go to another one for a 2nd opinion.
Avatar f tn About 15 years ago I started on anti depression Meds for my anxiety/panic attacks because I could not function. 11 years ago I developed some serious health problems which I continue to suffer from. One of my problems is I have Lupus which exacerbates depression and on top of that I have been on steroids full time for the past 4 years which also exacerbates depression.
