Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety and depression prescriptions


467208 tn?1207023292 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 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.
Avatar f tn My went to visit my doctor about my anxiety and sleeping issues and he has put me on Cipralex 10mg dosage a day and also prescribed me 50mg of trazodone to be taken at bedtime to help me sleep. Does anyone take these prescriptions? if so could I please get some feedback on them?
943091 tn?1245693237 depression and anxiety pretty much go together as a package deal. really it's a matter of what level of depression and anxiety you have. sometimes the depression is much stronger than the anxiety, and vice-versa. but untreated or ignored depression can easily cause anxiety issues eventually. as mentioned, where you start is a psychiatrist...especially since you're already taking meds. find a good one that you trust to listen to you and not just write prescriptions.
Avatar n tn I am supposed to take 300 mg gabapentin three times a day, for a total of 900 mg. The gaapentin is to take the place of Zanax, which I took for anxiety and ocd. Zanax is addictive so the doctor is replacing it with this.
Avatar f tn Being under that much stress and anxiety may be worse for you and the baby then the medications. In the end it is up to you and how you feel/what you feel you need.
459111 tn?1250038308 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 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 n tn re concerned about possible interactions between Zoloft and ultram , I would ask your pharmacist where you go to fill the prescriptions for these two medications. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I take Hydroco/APAP 10-325 (4) times a day and Clonazepam 0.5 MG daily and feel great. Is there any danger in taking both these medications?
Avatar f tn Depression per se is not ADHD, and school counselors are not qualified to diagnose you. You are best seeing a psychiatrist or a competent psychologist for your problem. Your family doctor is more apt to give you a pill instead of an informed evaluation.
Avatar f tn It is probably the combination of the two. I suffered from insomnia and anxiety issues as well and I think the only reason I'd sleep better was because of the dampening effect they had on my stress levels, and the peace of mind from knowing I was being helped. If Paxil is causing sleeplessness (which is common) then it is not going to help you any with anxiety or depression. Why did you decide to go on another antidepressant?
Avatar m tn I'm in San Diego. I've been diagnosed with Panic Disorder and/ or Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I also have major depression. I have San Diego county insurance (CMS), that lets me see a Nurse Practioner, plus I'm seeing a psychiatrist at one of the county's behavorial health clinics. She says she wishes she could give me the valium or clonazepam that I have been prescribed to off and on for the last 12 years, but that her "hands are tied.
2011699 tn?1328933353 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 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 m tn You only need one! 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....
Avatar f tn I am battling major night sweats, hot flashes, moodiness, anxiety, depression, and now reflux, sleep issues...etc. I am not sure the best thing to do. I feel like I just have more and more prescriptions thrown at me and I am overwhelmed. Any advice would be helpful.
Avatar f tn Thanks!!!
2064754 tn?1333375663 There are different types and classes of medication that people are prescribed for anxiety and depression. There are faster actiing meds like Xanax and Ativan that are used on an as needed basis and are usually prescribed more short term and then there are medications like Zoloft and Prozac (SSRIs) that are prescribed more long term and taken on a regular basis. While these are only two types, there are also multiple other classes of medications that are used in the treatment of both.
Avatar n tn Hi all, im 32+3 weeks wth my first and really starting to struggle with the idea of labour I have suffered from anxiety and depression in the past and scared of going back down that route as im constantly thinking negative thoughts about things going wrong in labour. I lie awake at night just going over and over it in my head then im ridiculously tired the next day because ive had no sleep which in turn makes me moody, emotional and lethargic.
Avatar f tn I was the same way depression and anxiety before pregnancy I stopped cold Turkey on my meds when I found out I was pregnant and I am riding it out I don't want to get on medication I want to protect my baby but my dr said it's worst not taking medication that the baby feels the stress hormones.
Avatar f tn I suffer from anxiety and depression. More anxiety then depression (I think), I've had it all of my life and I could always pretty much control it,up till about 12 years a ago. I've seen countless drs and therapist and have not gotten much help. I have uncontrollable feelings of panic,fear,and excessive worry ALL the time. I also have no energy,not even to shower or do "everyday" things that normal people don't even think about.
Avatar f tn You will go through this for some time. Real time. Months and maybe a year or more. The subs are known to cause depression and yes your brain is healing. While you are on any opiates your body stops making seratonin. It's your natural happy drug. It takes a long time for your brain to realize that it has to start making it's own natural pain killer again. You may experience anxiety and depression and even have some aches and pains that you never had before.
Avatar f tn She tends to ease My anxiety and depression. But husband is my rock and helps so much, never makes me feel bad for the way I feel and always helps and comforts me. Hope you ladies can find the same or a way to help cope with this awful feeling.
Avatar f tn I'm currently taking zopiclone for sleep been taking them for ten days. Can I just stop taking these? I've been diagnosed with depression and anxiety I'm also currently taking propranolol and fluoxetine.
Avatar n tn I have been on various forms of different anti-depressants which also help some anxiety. The longest medication I was on was Effexor XR for maybe 8 years. Over that time I developed an alcohol problem. Since then I quit alcohol without a problem, however, I am currently in the midst of a major depressive episode due to a break up of a relationship. I went off Effexor 6 months ago and my doctor put me on 150 mg of the Zoloft generic and also started me on Wellbutrin generic.
Avatar f tn I have chronic pain and a degenerating spine i had been suffering from both depression and anxiety when i found out i was expecting. I've learned to reach out and talk to a professional as well as know there are medications available-if needed. So far, I'm holding my own.
