Anxiety and depression websites

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety and depression websites


Avatar m tn I would really like to receive some guidance as many forums and websites say that this is more than anxiety and it is a condition that lasts for years and years! I really just want my life back. Please if you could answer these questions and give me some reassurance, I have lost my interest in EVERYTHING. As a matter of fact, I can't even believe this is me writing this. Is it possible for somebody who had such low levels of anxiety to experience 24/7 depersonalization??
Avatar m tn I guess what I really want is some reassurance that this dry mouth is a result of depression/anxiety/stress. I was briefly on melatonin, Ron zoplicone and lorazepam.
Avatar n tn yoga postures, pranayam and meditaions will help you to come out of depression and anxiety. Kundalini yoga can help to increase your sexual urge.It willl be a long term treatment.It will help you in other areas of your life.
Avatar m tn Those are "adverse side effects" of some medications meaning they are statistically rare and not every one applies to every medication. Every medication has adverse side effects including asprin. I would not decide against all medication because of it. Untreated depression itself can sometimes lead to suicide and certainly can ruin the quality of a person's life.
Avatar f tn ve been taking Wellbutrin 75 mgs in the morning for 8 months now to treat my depression, went up to 100 mgs SR for a couple of months but the anxiety was unbearable (I was diagnosed 5 years ago with anxiety/panic disorder and depression) so my p-doc brought me back to 75 mgs/day. I am also taking 0.5 mgs of Klonopin twice a day (morning and night) for anxiety. I am very sensitive to meds and can not tolerate any other ADs that I've tried these last 5 years.
709686 tn?1277432159 m certain the frequency and intensity is on the way down. Please remember that I am just a fellow suffer of anxiety and depression who is trying anything possible to get my life back and I'm wanting to share my experience with whoever will listen.
Avatar f tn I have suffered severe anxiety and depression since my first child was born 19 years ago!! I have a 19 year old and 14 year old daughters from first marriage and 7 month old from second marriage . I have been on at least 8 different meds that I can remember through these years and with my last pregnancy I was on wellbutrin when found out I was pregnant with my now 7 month old daughter. The doctor did not recommend the welbuttrin through that pregnancy and my midwife switched me to celexa!
Avatar f tn If not it certainly would be essential to see a psychiatrist in addition to a talk therapist but as what you describe sounds like there might potentially be some other issues in addition to depression and anxiety perhaps a consultation with a neurologist just to rule out some other criteria. A lot can happen in an anxiety attack that affects the body in general and it appears physical but it would be important to have a general exam as well.
404138 tn?1308941656 Im reading up on Prisiq and its for depression I guess.. according to the websites ive found including The thing is I dont have depression!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have anxiety ...wat the heck is this doctor thinking. I mean my anxiety makes me depressed at times but if the anxiety was gone id be happyier than ever...and im generally a happy person except when my anxiety gets to be too much. I dont really think I should be taking the lexapro and prisiq ......i just want to feeeel better..
Avatar f tn You can look on drug info sites and see that anxiety is an infrequent side effect of metoprolol and other BBs. Same with weight gain, and even a reference to increasing any pre-existing depression. When you have rare side effects, it can be difficult to convince anybody that the effect is real and does come from the drug. I'd identify what web sites he would consider to be as authoritative sources, then print web pages from those sources that list your symptoms as rare side effects.
574118 tn?1305135284 today i discovered that anxiety is adjunct to depression and not mania clarifying a lot of things. So AD removes it as well but of course beware of mania. When i had rages twice i thought mixed episode but pdoc said anxiety and i suspected he was wrong then because i took seroquel and it disappeared. So could the AD side of seroquel killed the anxiety/depression? in which case i could have taken an AD solely to remove it.
Avatar m tn different people experience anxiety differently. So yes, anxiety if bad enough could cause these things, and it could also not be the cause. It could be causing some of it and not all of it. Only seeing a doctor for a thorough exam can tell you if something is going on physiologically. It's when they don't find anything that they then attribute it to anxiety, and then they are not always right about that.
Avatar n tn As for your medication Lexapro is an SSRI used to treat major depression and generalized anxiety disorder. Trazadone is a tricyclic, which is older medication used to treat major depression. Different medications work differently foor different individuals and produce different side effects. If cost is an issue, I would discuss that issue with your doctor who can provide you with valuable advice about alternatives. A pharmacist is also a good resource.
Avatar f tn I have a suggestion that has been very useful for me. I am 45 and have suffered from anxiety and depression for many years. I am in the medical profession and am always looking for alternatives for myself and others with these disorders. Like you, I have recently started meditation but my suggestion is for you to research EFT ( emotional freedom technique) It will seem crazy and impossible that it can work but just give it try.
Avatar m tn Hello I am 17 years old and I have just been diagnosed with Depression and Anxiety disorder. I've always had anxiety attacks since I was in middle school but now I'm having severe panic and anxiety attacks. And I just don't feel myself anymore. So a doctor put me on med's; Celexa for my depression, Clonidine for my A.D.D, and Klonopine for my panic and anxiety.
1285120 tn?1273751607 I also take klonopin for my anxiety and panic attacks 2 times daily in low doses. It is alright for my mood swings im still full manic sometimes though but only being treated for three weeks on these meds.
Avatar f tn and im only saying this because there are many other websites online that say there is a possible risk then. No condom, and cuts in the mouth of the person giving oral. Im just curious as to why these websites state it is a risk. but everyone here is deadset on it not being one.
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.
