Common Questions and Answers about Depression medication for energy


Avatar f tn does anyone know anything about celexa? for depression I have been on wellbution 300 mg lexapro paxil ... i can't find anything that continues to work for my depression. It seems to work for a little while and then stops. Or maybe it's just me? my diagnosis is bipolar 2 although sometimes I think it's bipolar1 with depression. I never have any energy and i feel trapped in my house. I am very antisocial. I don't want to be. I just cant help it . I feel like I am holding my self hostage.
Avatar f tn To minimize symptoms there are activities to avoid....I use to save up energy for special days....for example if I knew I had a big day coming I would rest up b4 so as to make sure I did not over do it so I felt ok for the bigger day....we all have to test out what issues affect us to know what to avoid .but the list is helpful in guiding us as to type of activities.
520191 tn?1355639002 mania (higher energy, higher mood) 2. depression (lower energy, lower mood) 3. mixed states (lower mood, higher energy) 4. rare case (high mood, low energy) so if you can boost your mood you delete 2 and 3. For 1 people only know the AD"s to do it, but unfortunately somehow increasing your mood will automatically give you energy thus --> manic. So the question is whether one can increase the seretonin without touching upon the dopamine is the trick.
Avatar m tn People,don't lose faith,depression can be treated with the right therapy and the right medications,it's a question of finding the right meds for your depression,it's trial and error until you find the right one or combination and then life can become so much easier.Always consult your doctor when coming off meds and don't stop cold turkey because the withdrawl symptoms can be shocking.Don't ever think you're alone either because you're not.
Avatar f tn Hopefully, this will help me, because I am going through one of the most difficult times of my life. I am also taking some medication for anxiety and depression. Hopefully, this kicks in soon. The only problem I have is dealing with people and my emotions. Hopefully, I can find out a way to deal with this soon.
Avatar f tn Protozan is an herbal used for depression, and amoryn a natural formula for depression. These remedies are not regulated like medications, although they are starting to look closer at them. They may have some serious side effects that are unknown, and I would avoid them. If you feel depressed, I agree that you need to see a psychiatrist to determine this, and he would know if medication is needed or maybe just therapy or both.
4971738 tn?1390568984 Are you taking any medication for your depression? I have extreme phobia/fear due to other family members and I can't handle the thought of being zombie out like they stay along with addictions and that terrifies me because I know the same could happen to me if I started taking any type of medication for a period of time. I know I'm not suppose to compare myself to them but when you have been in Satan's den, I'm sorry, that fear is a realistic one for me.
Avatar f tn I'm not taking any medication for depression - I was simply asking what depression felt like in my original post. My oldest daughter mentioned that there was a change in my behavior -- lately -- sad, recluse, and just not myself as she says. My diagnosis -- I have been diagnosed with Adult ADD - well, actually diagnosed with ADD ages ago.
723959 tn?1314747825 Normally once you get to the root cause and deal with it, your depression will go away. You may need to take medication to help you thru this time, but this is a decision to be made between you and your doctor. Know you're not alone in this, it's very common. It sounds like you have a wonderful family and life, and you don't want to be depressed.
Avatar m tn Is being severely agitated and irritable having great difficulty concentrating a sign of depression. Also racing thoughts when I awake and disturbing dreams. Also severe loss of energy. I this depression? my drs say that I am anxiety ridden.
Avatar f tn Hi there. It certainly fits the criteria for depression but I see that you are quite young and so it may also be hormonal changes which usually occur */at your age. Is there anything in particular which caused this mood change? If there is, then perhaps you need to evaluate the issue and try to solve it. Also, I know being a teenager is hard, its probably the hardest point in a person's life.
Avatar f tn I barely have enough energy, respect, will to go through another day. Again, sorry for the emotive speech. If it this is that. Counselling... I think it's just that I'm so tired of it going slowly. I want to jump in, but even if I had a chance, I don't think I could. I talked to my counsellor today and we got into that topic, and she said that it's ...well, like I've always thought, two mes. Only she said watching me, she could tell.
Avatar f tn Since for us driven manic by AD, if you beat depression without an AD then no more depression for start the first face of the coin, and by not taking an AD then no second face too i.e. no mania. So by not having neither depression nor mania then no BP. Simple. I also demanded from the forum to start looking for an AD that doesn't bring mania. Although nobody came to rescue me by suggesting one, i tried in the meantime lexapro/cipralex, seroxat/paxil/ some tricyclics, stablon/coaxil etc..
Avatar f tn It was one of those things I put aside when I was low with depression, and forgot about!! Also did not pay bills, for same reason. So I know all about that. It is marvellous that you say you don't feel sorry for yourself. Most people would in your situation. When our depression is due to lack of certain chemicals, I think it can be worse, because therapy does not help. In the UK where I live, I have found that psychiatrists only deal with medication, nothing else.
233622 tn?1279338505 Remember LA, you can't do all of this yourself, nor can you do it ALL at the same time. Just do 1 thing even if it is small and takes your energy away for awhile and give yourself LOTS of credit for doing it! Be good to yourself girl! Use those durn baskets for anything that is overwhelming you. Papers, bills that need shredding or sorting. Pile them up in those plastic baskets, and when you can get to it, it will all be together.
Avatar f tn Hi All! What are some good supplements for fatigue/ promote energy ( especially women)?? Thanks for all input.
Avatar f tn The medication's active substance is amphetamine, a schedule-II controlled medication, but it is formulated as a 'pro-drug' that is fairly safe for very short-term use, providing it is not illegal to prescribe stimulants for such a purpose in your state.
Avatar f tn Sometimes, after quitting opiates, it takes your body months to readjust. The listlessness and depression can last for a very long time. You may need to speak to a physician about starting some antidepressant medication such as Wellbutrin or Effexor, for example. It will help you get yourself together in the long run. Good luck to you and stay well.
1639313 tn?1314587142 This baby is taking every bit of energy i have severe nausea . i have medicine for that too but it makes me very sleepy. so i just deal with it all.
Avatar n tn She has had allergy problems but the vet has that under control. She takes monthly allergy shots now. She eats OK but she sleeps all the time. She will play for a short time then lay down and go back to sleep. Do I have a depressed dog on my hands? The vet tested her blood and thyroid. All seems fine. What is making this dog so low on energy? I only feed her human grade food, no preservatives or antibiotics so I feel the food is not the problem.
Avatar m tn It takes a long time for the energy to return. For most, energy, sleep and depression seem to be the longest to work out. Just give it time. You have the right attitude by saying you don't want the pills in your life anymore, focus on that. I know its hard but push yourself to do any exercise, it will be hard but it will help. It may take months before you have the energy back but it will be more than you ever had on the pills. I now run 8-10 miles a day.
Avatar n tn When you have a diagnosis of Bipolar the doctor should have told you that you will be on this medication for the rest of your life. Please see your physician ASAP. My husband was Bipolar and he tried so hard to get off the medications too but in the end he committed suicide. You are really tempting fate and I cannot tell you how important it is that you see the doctor.
711224 tn?1344775287 The depression sets in again and I am scared to death, I just hate being in the black, dark hole.
797340 tn?1240511297 PMoon, yes I do suffer from depression bouts, I was diagnosed as manic depressive when I was 20 years old. I don't take medication for it, because I feel worse on it. The best thing for me is to keep my mind constantly busy, and unfortunately this makes me an extremely busy person. I have to being doing 5 things at once and my bf hates it hehe, but it keeps me happy and occupied. I will try to work in more veggies and count my calories more closely.
Avatar m tn i still have a prescription for tramadol (50mb) - i dont take it everyday but it really helps when im feeling stressed is it unreasonable to ask for tramadol as an anti-depressant\anti-anxiety medication. from what ive been reading about tramadol is that its only prescribed for pain - would a doctor prescribe this medication for my condition? I really dont want to take anything else.
Avatar f tn For the last 13 years I have taken varying prescribed doses of Levothyrox/thyroxine for hypothyroidism/Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Throughout that time, although blood tests have varied from time to time and dosage adjusted accordingly, I have rarely felt totally 'well' ; symptoms usually are a mixture (sometimes all) of the usual - fatigue, mild depression, weight gain, cold intolerance, insomnia, thinning hair, etc.etc.
