Avatar f tn I'm currently receiving counselling and am 21w pregnant suffering with severe depression and anxiety. Both my GP and counsellor have recommended I take medication again but have refused due to the fact I do not want that going into my child. If I still feel bad after I have given birth them may see about medication again but that's just my view.
Avatar m tn Healthy and active! background- i used to take paxil, a anxiety and depression medicine during my High School years. i havent taken them in like 5 years or so. But out of nowhere i now feel tired, and confused, and drowsy, and like the feelings i feel are weird. It's like im not aware of a lot of things. and its hard for me to think sometimes and remember things at times. Like im a little more forgetful about things. Im still working out and run daily to keep active and keep my blood pumping.

1913857 tn?1322263556 I was wondering about anyone taking herbal remedies for anxiety or depression. I do take Cybalta (spell?) but I also take a stress B complex in the morning with my vitamins and Holy Basil at night with my meds. They seem to really be helping. I was wondering about if anyone else has some herbal remedies that helped them?
Avatar f tn Hi, has anyone tried homeopathy for dealing with anxiety and depression? I just started seeing a homeopath this week and he gave me a remedy that I have been taken for 4 days. He put something in it to give me the immediate benefit of better sleep (and it's working!), but since this is a holistic treatment I know my body has to heal itself, and so it'll take time to see my anxiety and depression improve. But I'm wondering if anyone has experience with this sort of thing.
Avatar n tn When I don't feel it, I am getting discouraged. Anxiety is up and dow, and depression strikes sometimes. One day is very good, other slow, tired no emotions, pessimistic, and the worst questioning myself all the time. Do you guys have something like that or it's just me? How to live with something like that?

Avatar f tn I was wondering if there was anything I could possibly take thats all natural for depression. I am 13 weeks pregnant. I'm suffering really bad from hormones, and very depressed. I do have a history of depression, I usually take Celexa, but I cannot take that while pregnant, and I am really not comfortable taking a prescription antidepressant while pregnant.
Avatar n tn The other problem is depression very often is accompanied by or caused by anxiety, and substances that help depression can be stimulating and thus aggravate anxiety. Still, it's worth trying if one can afford it and can find a professional who has experience with this. A good book to read on what's available is Natural Highs by Hyla Cass, a psychiatrist at UCLA.
Avatar m tn There's no history of any neurological problems in my family as far as I know, but there is anxiety and depression (and dementia) on my fathers' side of the family. My sister has anxiety, she's been on antidepressants. My mom's mother did have Parkinson's late in life, now that I think about it. I also see a therapist bi-weekly (been doing that since the divorce 2 years ago), and just saw someone yesterday who specializes in anxiety and meditation.
Avatar m tn I don't know if it would help you, but when I had my baby I was told Fish Oil Omega 3, they are said to help Depression & Anxiety. And since I can't take anything due to nursing that's what I take and it does help.

Avatar f tn Klonopin is long-lasting compared to other benzos, and is specific for anxiety. Lexapro targets serotonin receptors, so is for depression and anxiety. Most serious anxiety sufferers end up on both. Ssri's aren't addictive because you don't need more for it to keep working, but as jake says, quitting can be hard, though benzos are probably overall more dangerous to quit.
200828 tn?1209921575 "Some say magnessium (sic), some say your diet has a lot to do with it, St. johns wart (sic). Do some research on natural rememdies (sic). It really is trial and error. Good luck." There have not been any clinical studies to support magnesium being helpful in depression or anxiety symptoms. St. John's wort has been studied, however, and found to be helpful with symptoms of *mild* depression only.

Avatar m tn no sleep, depression, anxiety, numbness in fingertips and toes. Just feel terrible. Are there any natural remedies I can try to bridge the gap? Many thanks.
Avatar f tn I do not have any depression-just anxiety and panic attacks. I have used the Rescue Remedy in the past and I don't think I really gave it a long enough chance to work... I have a counselor who speciaizies in anxiety that I see and that has helped. I spoke with her right after the attacks started and a day or 2 before I started the Wellbutrin. I felt much better after speaking with her but still started the meds... now after 2 months of meds I think they are making me feel more anxious!
656198 tn?1226790436 But I stuck with it and have been extremely happy with it - once both the anti-depression AND the anti-anxiety effects kicked in gear. With the support of all the afore-mentioned people (and God) I hope to come off Lexapro in a while and see how I am do without it. As Hensly (on another thread) wisely suggested, how well I do will be dependant on if my depression and anxiety were "situational" or "biological/chemical" (i.e.
237053 tn?1258832026 Does anyone else suffer from anxiety? I've been having on and off anxiety since symptoms started. I get it worse at night. It is scarey and comes from nowhere. I don't know if this is a normal lymes symptom.
203342 tn?1328740807 But when I get lazy or busy and let time go by without doing that then the stress and anxiety comes back and it can come back strong. I have to learn to not let it get so bad before I do something, I guess. Because If I wait till it's real bad then it's harder to calm myself down. I guess I'm just rambling here, lol. Sorry.
Avatar f tn Back in sept 06 I started having bad anxiety and now I fell depression and I am on antidepressants for the anxiety. I have female problems as well that have gone worse. Does perimenapause or menapause cause anxiety ? Is there blood test so they can determine if I am near menapause?
446896 tn?1237806342 My humble advice would be to take a home pregnancy test and get that question solved. It might help clear up some of the anxiety/depression you're dealing with, and it might be just the ticket to get your cycle going again if that "concern" is off your mind. I would then suggest when you begin therapy next week, discuss all your feelings about taking medications.
331673 tn?1199357885 Someone, somewhere, has to give it a name and depression and anxiety sound like good enough ones to me. But rather than speculating over what its going to be called, let's focus instead on doing something about it.
