Common Questions and Answers about Depression causes irritability


Avatar f tn Are you under a doctor's care for depression? If not, you should be as these are all classic symptoms of depression. There is help for this, and if you're not getting any treatment then make an appt. to see a psychiatrist so the two of you can discuss what course of treatment would be best for you...therapy and/or medication. Depression makes us feel like this, and it's rare that we can beat it on our own. I wish you all the best.
Avatar f tn About once a week I get these very uncomfortable irritable sensations throughout my spine and it causes soreness and stiffness in my back and neck sometimes, then I get fatigue and depressed. I cant tolerate hearing loud noises or being around people, it makes it a lot worse. I am on the anti-depressant Celexa at 10 mg, was on 10 mg of lexapro but switched. Can depression cause these painful symptoms or could it be something else?
Avatar f tn It's really annoying and I'm not sure what causes it, but I too have been diagnosed with anxiety and depression. I've noticed it happens more on my days off, or days where I don't do much but lounge about so I don't know if it's pent up energy or what. It's good to know though that I'm not the only one feeling this way.

Avatar n tn I am also off gluten totally, so that could also be part of it, not sure. As far as Savella and irritability: yes I also have that! But the benefits of Savella for the fibro are SO great, I am trying to work it out. Wondering it you recently stopped the Lexapro without tapering off it; seems like I go through withdrawal when i quit any antidepressants.
Avatar m tn it alerts clinicians, particularly neurologists and general practitioners, of the need to be aware of psychiatric symptomatology in their community-based patients with MS, particularly depression, apathy and irritability.

Avatar n tn canard is just a hypothesis/marketing slogan). Increased irritability is often a characteristic of depression. There is some evidence that some antidepressants stimulate the growth of neurons in the brain. However, I believe that since the natural process of aging over a period of twenty-five years also causes changes to brain tissue that your question is difficult to answer definitively.

1692704 tn?1307215380 I noticed that depression and anxiety is a common occurrence with chronic lyme. Depression and anxiety can cause the exact same symptoms as Lyme.

As with all antidepressants, side effects are wide ranging. One has to be dedicated to taking antidepressants.

In another study cannabis could produce schizophrenia or be the onset of schizophrenia in individuals prone to schizophrenia.

Avatar n tn Everyone I have ever known or heard of that got off any opiates was left with severe depression. Is this a standard side effect and how long will it last and how is it best treated? My friend's nephew just went to an addiction doctor who gave him buprenorphine injections and other scripts to get off pain pills. When he asked about an anti-depressant the doctor said "no mood enhancers for addicts." This seems unusual to me.
Avatar m tn It's been the cause of depression, stress, irritability, tiredness, memory issues, trouble speaking, and most of all its giving me a real hard time doing anything that requires focus. I struggle with reading, preparing food, learning new things, etc. Its not even like its very painful, its more of just a discomforting pressure inside my head that refuses to go away. It's there when I go to sleep, and it's there when I wake up.

Avatar n tn Sounds like stress and depression more than add. Being a caregiver is extremely stressful. Are you getting any time for yourself at all?
Avatar n tn What you describe sounds more like depression than anxiety, but you can have both. But your numbness, lack of feelings, lack of motivation and irritability all point to depression. Depression can cause anxiety. I would see a professional for a diagnosis as to exactly what is going on, and go from there. Therapy is very effective, because there is always a root cause for our depression and/or anxiety.

572651 tn?1531002957 i started taking cymbalta at various mg's to help with irritability mainly due to discomfort/pain. i'm sure it helps with intermittant depression. i'm a little "touchy" about the depression due to the many mis-diagnosed labels the VA placed on me over the years. part of my quasi-ptsd issues i'm told. when your nervouse system is out of whack due to ms, i understand more about the depression.
Avatar f tn My daughter is a cosmetologist and she told me the topo causes the hair follicles to close. What has fallen out, wont grow back, but the hair loss should stop when you discontinue the drug. The Topo really messed up my cycle too. I think my adrenals took a hard hit from just two weeks on the drug. For me it was not worth it. I was stupid, depressed and started having panic attacks on it. I would loose blocks of time. Huge blocks.
Avatar f tn I have also posted over in depression forum. I quit Zoloft after ten years, and suddenly felt fantastic. Within a month or two, I wound up with Adrenal Insufficiency and was given Hydrocortisone. While I am sure I needed it, the amount was too strong, so I cut back on it a little. Then I became VERY depressed, worst in my life! Was the return to depression from the new medicine? Anyone have experience with this problem? PLEASE answer me ASAP, I only have a half-hour.

Avatar m tn In the last year of hi engg he went in depression. We were worried a lot about his depression so we were preoccupied with his treatment. we could not arrange finance or we could not concentrate properly what he should do further even he could not do it. I couldnot come to a conclusion about his further studies. He says the going to other country was his third option where as his second option was MBA and the first option was going to UK which was not done.
