Common Questions and Answers about Depression medication for men


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 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 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 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?
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 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.
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 f tn Im on medication for depression and anxiety. Also occasionally I have a sedative in case I go bizzercerz. Would that hurt my child more than stress would?
1653617 tn?1301898264 my best days i can get up and play with my kids and others i just want to sit arround the house and watch tv. i take a depression medication and some days it feels like it istn working. im lost and dont know what to do if anyone has any tips please let me know.
Avatar f tn t need to test more than either lamictal, seroquel or abilify. These 3 are the best for your case. The 1st AC for depression. The 2nd is antimanic and a moderate MS. The 3rd is AP atypical like the 2nd but a 2nd generation stabilizing the dopamine instead of supressing it.
Avatar f tn ve not had depression but I know with anxiety medication and counselling has helped. Have you tried either?
Avatar f tn I'm on 50 mg Zoloft
Avatar n tn i am 25 years old and for 2 years ago when i had a child i went to the dr for help with my depression. well 2 years later and countless drs, every medication depression and otherwise makes me break out with a very weird rash. the rash seems to be triggered by me getting a chill then its like the goosebumps just stay, it does not itch but i have a weird "chill" sensation where ever the rash is located. the rash is white raised goosebump like patches. it never comes at the same time.....
Avatar f tn It depends on which medication, there are some that are safe. Ive been having issues with it, because ive already taken all the ones that are safe at one point and there are very few that are safe.
Avatar f tn Get a copy of what was tested. Get a copy from your doctor of from the lab. Prolactin is rather tricky even though the docs tend to think it is simple. Make sure you had a lot of tests - thyroid, pituitary and a lot of general tests. The depression you have, if not for a reason in your life, could be a symptom of hormonal imbalance - other hormones. GPs are not that suited to treat hormones - heck, most endos cannot do it well... sad. Was your MRI scan done properly?
