Common Questions and Answers about Depression medication for men

depression

Avatar n tn I am considering asking my doctor about discontinuing medication for depression completely to see how I can handle things with counseling, but am concerned since I have been on various medications for depression for such a length of time - probably 10 years. I'm not sure what to do, and when I consulted with my psychiatrist, who has been simply a medication manager, he said, I don't have any answers for you, come back in a month.
457745 tn?1212925510 Anxiety and depression can go hand in hand. They certainly did for me. My doc told me that antidepressant medication works to cure anxiety too, but there is never any guarantee for a particular individual that a med will do the job. You are wise to seek help immediately. You may be in depression, or heading for one, or just need help pulling through this tough time.
Avatar f tn I know that prayer will do more then any pill but I also believe that God allowed men to make medication to help. Anyway thank you for your prayers and please continue to pray that the medication changes will help.
1153011 tn?1262115915 t be bothered to do anything... it took every ounce of strehgth I had just to get up and go for a shower. Still feel disgusting and repulsive. Even if I did reach my weight loss goal I'd still never be beautiful or amazing. I'd still just be pathetic. On my wedding day I can only see how depressed i'll still be while other women come and look drop dead gorgeous and amazing and be happy and smiling and I'll just be pathetic em.
2097734 tn?1333394338 I don't know what to feel. I guess there's a lot more going wrong right now than there is going right. I feel so depressed; maybe it's the week of no medication, or maybe it's just me. Sometimes I think that no one really loves me. Steven's bugging me for not contacting him; the truth is I just don't think it's going to work. I'm not ready for a relationship at the moment. I don't even know who I like. Everything's so confusing right now.
Avatar m tn Our society does a terrible disservice to men by raising them to think that their penis has to be 10 inches long, hard as a rock and last all night. It’s no wonder that many men feel insecure about their sexuality. Great sex involves your whole body; in fact, having great, mutually satisfying sex is usually quite the opposite of what you see in those performance-oriented sex videos. The more you think of sex as being about performance, the more worries you'll have.
Avatar n tn Through the therapy I have come to realize that my depression started with childhood abuse--physical, emotional and sexual. These are not easy concepts for men to face--I think. Certainly that is my personal experience and probably why it has taken me so long to address them and understand my depression in terms of them. OK I'll try to get to my question. I want to know if it's realistic for me to work towards getting off these drugs eventually.
Avatar n tn The deltiazem has been given to me in England where we are temporarily living. Is this an effective medication for reducing the incidence of PSVTs? The medication seems to be making me very tired, somewhat nauseous, and shaky. Will these symptoms wear off with time? What effect do Ca++ channel blockers have on depression? I have been on long term treatment, 50mg, of nortriptyline for depression and irritable bowel.
Avatar f tn I also suffer from depression and I am also on medication. Men are very stubborn and I think they dont go for treatment is to them it may be a sign of weakness. If it's been over a year and your husband thinks it needs more time to ride thru this its going to keep getting worse. I might suggest you call his family dr the next time he is scheduled to go and call a day before and have the nurse tell his dr what has been going on.
Avatar f tn t be happier, but I have concerns about having depression and being on medication. By partner and I have been talking about wanting to start a family for sometime now. Back in April I made an appointment with my doctor and decided to go off my antidepressants as I wanted to do a trail run and see how I felt (wanting to be chemical free for when we do have a baby). Make a long story short it went awful a month in. I had severe anxiety attacks and my depression hit hard..
Avatar m tn He was very good and after a couple of meetings he prescribed me with medication for what he called a chemical imbalance in my brain that caused depression. The meds worked and I definitely wasn't as sad most of the time. So for seven years I've taken meds. More recently I've started to feel, emotionless and even angry (on the inside). Im not suicidal like I was in middle school, but I definitely don't feel good.
1248885 tn?1285832739 I now am on Celexa HBR 20 mg. I have been on it almost a month. I am taking it for Depression. It seems to be helping. The thing is I am not sure if I should increase it. Does anyone know if the dose of the Celexa is equivalent to the Cymbalta? I do still have moment where I begin to cry out of the blue, even when things become overwhelming. Any sugestions would be a great help. thank you for reading, responding.
411389 tn?1230124477 You also need to taper off of benzodiazepines like the valium. Paxil is good for depression and I believe it is also good for social anxiety.
Avatar m tn Before I actually went and got help for my depression, I simply could not wrap my head around the idea of "talking" to somebody and have my issues just go away. Obviously, that is too simple. But it had always been my impression that you "manned up" and "muscled through" things like this. In the mean time, I was sitting on a pressure cooker that had been near the point of bursting for a few decades..... I had my diagnosis broken down like this.
Avatar m tn If you are taking medication for depression does that make your system take longer to ejaculate and also make it harder to gain an erection?
731645 tn?1286832505 I know he has two kids that he has to take care of and I understand. He should try and make time for me, I'm 33-years and sick of men's Jr. high or kindergarten games that's all I get from them. I told my new boyfriend that I wanted to give up on men and relationships I'm so frustrated. I had a bad marriage and I've been divorced for 5 years. I'm happy that I don't have kids because of my poor health.
Avatar f tn I am currently looking for a new depression medication. I need some info on something that is NOT a SSRI, a hormone, and is not zoloft, celexa, or prozac......also something that does not contain salicylic acid aka aspirin. If anyone can help I would appreciate the help.
Avatar f tn does your partner masturbate frequently or take any medication? If he masturbates frequently tell him to leave his penis alone for a couple weeks..the "tightness" one can apply with his hand is considerably different than that of you and his penis/brain or whatever stuff is involved becomes used to reaching orgasm this way.
Avatar f tn i mean im a medical student i studied a psychiatric course and what i read from many lectures about depression is it says one of the etiology is genetic! so do i have higher risk for depression than someone whose mother is not depressed?
Avatar n tn What effect do Ca++ channel blockers have on depression? I have been on long term treatment, 50mg, of nortriptyline for depression and irritable bowel. I had ER treatment once in 1993, once in '95, and now in '98 I've been to the ER twice and have had 2 other episodes that converted on their own after about an hour. Is it likely that these episodes will increase in frequency? I'm concerned about being on so many medications at one time.
