Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety and depression websites


Avatar m tn I usually last about a half hour to an hour but today I was there for an hour and a half. She's an awesome lady and she knows I suffer with anxiety/depression so she lets me work as long as I can. One thing I do now is pat myself on the back when I get into my truck. Say way to go, you did it !!!!! Told her its only been 2 weeks today that I decreased my meds so hopefully from now on things start to get abit better !!!!
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 n tn Iv been tested with EKGs, ECGs, Treadmill test, MRI on head and all came back normal, theyv sent me to neurologists and they see nothing out of the normal. Many people have said this may be signs of depression or anxiety, Im a young male 17 yrs old. Quite stressed about my every day life regarding family issues, finances etc.
Avatar f tn Hi Have been taking a magnesium supplement for a week now and my anxiety has completely disappeared. Have suffered with anxiety and depression for 20 years tried all sorts of meds and taking magnesium has made me feel normal again. Have had a vegetarian diet for the past 20 years which could explain my low magnesium levels.
Avatar f tn I really feel that the combination of metoprolol and interferon (both of which can contribute to anxiety/depression) has been bad for me and at last feel that some of my old spontaneous self is returning.
Avatar f tn Have you tried any of the self help websites/books for anxiety? (there is a wealth of them on the internet) - send me a private message and can share some with you. Just like you I am at the beginning of this journey and I am still trying to figure out the best/fastest way out. I guess the key is to persevere and not lose hope. Hang in there.
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 I am suffering from depression but I have Long Qt and am obese , diabetic and have svt's my GP has been unable to find any medication that is suitable - do you have any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Of hopelessness and anxiety,i also suffered from major depression and the doctor tryed to tell me it was family heditary.I dont believe that, nonsense at all.I was taking micro gestin fe 120 for about 4 days and all hell broke lose i was feeling very terrible and i also was having suicidal thoughts.I never once in my life felt like this i had everthing a girl could ever dream of.During the time had a perfect life i was fixing to get married move into a new house i had a wonderful job .
Avatar f tn Personally, it took me probably a total of 5 months to *really* get myself back from the anxiety and depression (my main concern was the anxiety). Every now and then I'll have a mild bout of anxiety or depression, but it has gotten so so so much better. I saw the biggest difference after just one week off the pill, so I hope you will experience at least the same relief right away.
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 n tn It's so sad that so many people go through this and worse. so what other things can this be ?? and did anyone ever get told its anxiety and then found out it is not and it was something else causing it ? help would be greatly appreciated thank youu x0.
Avatar m tn Ever since I could remember I was considered forgetful and flighty. Now that my depression and anxiety (severe depression usually causes some level of anxiety) are treated with meds and therapy my functioning is much higher. I have completely turned around my work situation and am turning around my social situations as well. Notice your function went down after you went off your meds. My doctor says the goal of depression treatment is complete remission. e.g.
Avatar m tn I keep on telling myself that depression is almost like some incurable disease after discovering some people don't recover and also after finding about chemical imbalances. What do you suggest I do to make myself believe I can recover? I am scared that something is physically holding me back, if it was something mental that was holding me back I would have alot more confidence that i could make a full recovery!
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 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 f tn Small things just irritate me soo bad when my depression and anxiety get bad and I will start fights with Jaison over something stupid. I also feel tired and achey when it gets bad and will really not do much at all but lay around. THat upsets him because I just lay around like a lazy leach. He just tries to stay calm and deal with me. He knows it's hard on me.
Avatar f tn Hi I read your post and wanted to share my story with you. 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.
Avatar f tn Thank you so much, it's nice to have the reassurance that I am actually not sick (or dying). It's that I am stuck in this depression and anxiety. I am trying to find a more frequent therapy meetings. I have been taking a probiotic vitamin supplement, but I will check the refrigrated section for a better option. I still find myself just wanting to be alone and turn down fun events just to sit around. But thank you so much for this little boost to help me on the road to improving my mental health.
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 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.
225237 tn?1333142599 and the fear and anxiety was finally at bay. so.. if you REALLY want a cure.. and are sick of the anxiety and depression.. this is how you really fix it.. and not just a pharmaceutical band-aid that only masks the symptoms. if you seriously want change.. then try it. i promise if you do it.. and REALLY go all out.. until you can't go anymore.. you will be fixed.. try it. believe.
1244499 tn?1397549123 I guess I'll start by listing my mental health problems. I have "major depressive disorder", social anxiety, GAD, and panic disorder, but that can't possibly be all. No.... I have been deemed treatment resistant. I have taken.... well, let me put it this way: my psychiatrist recommended electroshock therapy. SSRI's don't work. SNRI's don't work. I don't know what Wellbutrin is, but that's not working with Lexapro, which is the combo I'm currently on.
Avatar f tn I hear bad and good things about it. then I have bad anxiety to where i cant leave the house sometimes and we tried klonopins those didn't work for me then he uped my dose in Xanax to 3 bars a day (yes which is a lot) but i take (4 mg during day break them in half , sometimes less just depends ) and 1 (2 mg) at nigh to sleep, which also helps me sleep.
Avatar f tn Seems you have so many difficult and tough situations in your life thus depression and anxiety are bombarding you. Of course the panic attack is present in these situations. Maybe you're burn out and it is tired thus you need some break. You need to engage in daily exercise for detoxification, eat high fiber diet and drink lots of water. Meditation is also needed.
Avatar m tn I'm on Seroquel for my hypomania and anxiety, split up during the day and at night time. It takes a while for these meds to fully work, but I'm sure you felt some positive effects after a few days on the Seroquel. Here's a good link for pretty much anything for a mood disorder and links to other sites from there.
Avatar f tn I knew I had read that depression was a symptom, and that stress could agrivate it, but looks like anxiety (Dawn) is also a symptom! ************************************************************************************************** [Because Chiari is accompanied by clinical depression almost 50% of the time and anxiety disorder 30% of the time, it is unknown to what extent the depression and anxiety could be causing physical symptoms. .
Avatar m tn I found several websites that allude to opiates and or opiate antagonists as possible treatments for depression. Unfortunately, since most of the articles were not about Naltrexone I didn't save them. What I have gleaned is that there is interest in developing a drug containing both an opiate and ultra low dose Naltrexone for use in pain management. The addition of Naltrexone to the opiate significantly slows the rate at which tolerance is developed to the opiate.
