Anxiety and depression prescriptions

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety and depression prescriptions


467208 tn?1207026892 I too and am on Zoloft and Ativan. Have you been talking to a good therapist? I had alot of trial and error with someone I felt comfortable with. Once I finally found one, I felt much better and made more progress. I know what it is like to lose your sense of identity and get frustrated, but in my opinion, the answer to your question, is no, I do not think you will feel like this forever.
Avatar n tn My boyfriend Ryan was diagnosed with severe depression, ADD, and social anxiety almost 2 years ago. Since then he's been on wellbutrin, strattera, lexapro, prozac, buspar, & ritalin with no change. He took the depression meds for at least 2 months at a time before changing. For about 9 month's he's been on zoloft (least side effects for him) & now nortriptilene to help intensify the effect. He's been taking the Nortrip since May and there's no change.
Avatar f tn Probably not a good med choice for someone suffering from Major depression and anxiety. Second, Mirapex is generally prescribed for restless leg syndrome. as for the Clonazapam that is simply a short acting benzodiazaphine to help with anxiety dissorder. I don't know your exact professional diagnosis, but the medications that your taking have me concerned. Questions in my mind are as follows 1. Hvae you been to see a Board certified Psychiatrist regarding your symptoms? 2.
351317 tn?1204755471 I am starting a new job as a security officer next week and I must say I have been having really bad anxiety for a week now. I have had depression on and off for a good part of my life and I am afraid it will hurt my performance at this new job. I had a dead end job as a dishwasher before this and I just recently quit because I just couldn't take it anymore. Now I have some how got myself a decent paying job with benefits and I am already getting the jitters.
Avatar n tn I know how you feel. Anxiety and depression are the pits.... but with the right meds you can live a normal life. Talk with your doc when you go... hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I've had 2 psychiatrists and 2 Dr's say they can't help me as I'm not depressed and sleep well. I took all their prescriptions (SSRI's) which made me sicker than I could handle. Xanax is the only thing that helps take the edge off. The panic hits when I awake from a sound nights sleep. I'm on 4 mg from that time until Noon. The afternoons and evenings are fine. Then it starts all over. No one can figure out this pattern as yet.
Avatar m tn They are rarely ever Rx'd together due to a risk of respiratory depression and resp arrest. A sub doctor will not prescribe it because of that, and a sub doctor is specially trained and certified to be able to prescribe sub, not just any doc can, so I doubt that a sub doc would take that risk. Your psych doc who Rx'es the benzos (why two different ones btw?) is most likely not permitted to prescribe subs.
Avatar n tn My 77 yr old mother with back pain,depression and anxiety is currently taking oxy contin 10 mg three times a day, hydrocodone 5/250 three times a day,(possibly more,she is very defensive on this issue),tizanidine 4mg three times a day,ambien 10 mg at hs and was recently prescribed klonopin twice a day,She sets her clock to get up at 2 am to take her oxy contin and frequently has to take a hydrocodone an hour or so later "to get back to sleep".
20000695 tn?1488221542 KatRoslyn, I have similar feelings. I have suffered clinical depression and anxiety my entire adult life. yours could be just anxiety. I overthink everything. I tend to think and worry and be upset over things that happened a long time ago and wish I had handled the situation differently. Its good that you can manage it. I would call your insurance company and straighten out your situation. You may need your insurance for an emergent situation and not be able to be covered.
Avatar f tn Has anyone tried Anticonvulants instead of SSRI's for Depression and Anxiety? I have dythymia and double depression with some anxiety (constant worry).
Avatar m tn My son has two types of anxiety disorders and major depression (plus 5 other disorders) and ONLY takes zoloft! Seriously, help yourself and find One doctor that will listen to you and Really help you. I don't know if this helps you? By the way, I only take Lexpro daily (10mg) and have not been in the hospital but three times in over a year....
2011699 tn?1328936953 There are a couple of things that I would recommend that you do so that you can make informed decisions and be less overwhelmed (which can increase anxiety and depression). Get a big expanding file folder and label it with sections such as "lab results", "Hep C information", "insurance", "bills/receipts", "prescriptions", etc.
Avatar f tn What i do have if this helps and was before the fire adhd chronic pain and anxiety after the fire cptsd i see smoke. I almost passed away trying to save out cats and was unsuccessful.
Avatar n tn I went 9 years, no drugs had a beutiful baby girl with no depression and my life was so full of joy and love and peace like I've never known in my whole life. I would suggest seeing your Dr and telling him everything you've wrote here. Also seek God as that has been my only hope. If not for HIM during the times of months and months not knowing where my daughter was I would have never ever made it. I right now am taking Paxil and it has help also through these 6 years.
Avatar n tn I am four weeks--minus a weekend where I fell off the wagon--without vicoprofen and I still feel energyless; I've also suffered a lot of anxiety and panic about not having the drugs. BUt I have an excellent doc who put me on paxil and xanax (in small amounts) and while I'm still moving in something of a fog, I don't feel as depressed. I even listened to some Van the other night and really was able to succumb to the music--first in a long time.
Avatar m tn Physical withdrawls haven't been that bad. It's the depression and anxiety I'm struggling seems boring and pointless without the drugs. I miss it. I feel like I just ended a long term relationship. I'm truly heartbroken. Any thoughts? Advice? Also, this detox was originally against my will. I've been spending my entire paychecks on lortab off the street. I'm now broke. However; I do have a career and will have money in the bank by this weekend.
Avatar f tn I have been taking Peroxetine 30mg for depression and anxiety for several years. Recently, the depression is really bad again. I have heard about GABA, 5-HTP from a friend who uses these (she doesn't take prescriptions), and they help her so much. Would it be safe for me to use these with my prescription? I really need help. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I am currently taking 10mg of buspirone 2x day and 15mg of mirtazapine for major depression and generalized anxiety. I have been feeling constantly tired, apathetic and despondent. My psychiatrist prescribed a starting dose of sertraline of 50mg/day. Since starting the sertraline again i have been suffering from physiological anxiety symptoms such as a tight throat, lump in throat, trouble swallowing and breathing, etc.
459111 tn?1250041908 This worry he experience is not a normal child worry, it is severe, complaining of headaches, sickness and bad thoughts like death. Our dog had to be put down due to cancer and age and my cousin and sister have cancer as well as a dear friend whom does not have long to live. My husband has a benign tumor in his parotid gland that need a operation in feb this year. My son see's these people regular and I feel it has a very big impact on him.
Avatar n tn It is supposed to do that, and it is a little safer than Paxil,for just the reasons you described, Paxil is hard to get off of because it is so short acting, and rebound pains are common. That is not true for Celexa.
Avatar n tn But I want you to know that you will get all better and that someday soon the first thing you think of when you get up in the morning will NOT BE ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION! Anxiety and depression will be the furthest thing from your mind and you will wake up happy (or grumpy, depending on how you slept!!) but you won't think about it first thing when you wake up, you will have too many other wonderful, beautiful things to think about and to enjoy in your life.
Avatar n tn Anyway, I am presently at 150mg Zoloft, 1.25 mg Klonipin and 15mg. Buspar for two weeks and have noticed no real difference in mood or anxiety, sleeping well, a little more energy.....Please help me continue. There are no other pyschiatrists in my area that are covered by my health insurance. Thank you so much and I am glad I found your site.
Avatar m tn Learning to change our thought patterns actually leads to the change in neural pathways...which can ease anxiety and depression. When new thought patterns are developed, those pathways are strengthened. If we continue to live in negativity then we create more depression and anxiety pathways and strengthen those pathways. In other words, you are what you think.
Avatar f tn I do NOT abuse my prescriptions It has helped me deal and cope with my depression and Anxeity . post over please , thanks .
Avatar m tn Dear Dr. I am on trazodone, prozac, and hydroxyzine for depression and anxiety. I feel I am ADD as well. Do these prescriptions fit my diagnosis? Should I be on something else?
Avatar m tn And how, if ever, am I ever going to get the anxiety under control. The only time it's not as bad is when the depression creeps up and overwhelms the anxiety. It's a catch 22 situation! It's also led me to a nearly successful suicide attempt this Summer that left me in ICU for a few days.
Avatar n tn I was on the patch for a while because of depression/anxiety issues (I saw a DO and she put me on it). When I went for my physical with my GYN this year he did a pelvic ultrasound and said my ovaries are up and running and that I did not necessarily need to be on the patch. I went off in December and lately I have been having periods of anxiety again. I am at about day 19-21 in my cycle and I will wake up from a deep sleep in a state of anxiety. I this just a perimenopausal system?
645390 tn?1338558977 (granted I know she is a psychologist...and most pts. most likely see her for some sort of depression/anxiety.) She know of other cases also, and feels Pfizer will have enough law suits to make this more known to the public. Anyway, just wanted to let u all know that. It is a great drug for many, as far as pain is involved, but of there is a history of depression, it can make it worse.
Avatar n tn I was put on Xanax for anxiety and it caused Depression, anger and suicidal actions. It was absolutely horrible. I was admitted to a behavioral health hospital 2 times in 2012 and finally last year after trying to commit suicide in March 2014 I was committed to another hospital and I weaned off the medication and did a complete 180 starting to feel like my old self again wanting to do hobbies, laughing, enjoying life.
2203249 tn?1338994046 He's more like himself and not so down. He had actually gotten to where his voice was just a monotone it was almost like talking to a robot. Today he's had more spirit in his voice if that makes sense. Was just wondering if anyone else had the same experience or is he just having a good day?
