1668478 tn?1303433602 I am not knocking pandamans advice, and with certain people, medication can help. However, I would strongly urge you to first try the support groups, therapist, and school councerlor before asking for medications. Very often, issues such as depression can be controlled without medications. The problem with medications is if you don't need them and therapy/group support can help the problem, is you become dependent on them.
Avatar f tn I don't like them. Also, medication change here means that I didn't take any of my meds.
Avatar f tn t care much about my depression and always brush it off as a symptom of celiac. I need to know if I should start medication for my depression because controlling my diet and avoiding gluten is not exactly helping my depression. And if this is a symptom of celiac disease, how long does it take (months, years?) for it to die down?
Avatar n tn Personally, the malnutrition made my mind so illogical. I think the help of medication was the only way I responded to therapy. Zoloft is approved for OCD in children ages 6-17 years. Trials were done for safety and effectiveness. Patients with OCD generally need much higher doses than those with depression alone. My personal belief is that allowing the disease to continue will do much more physical and psychological harm than the drug.

Avatar m tn Are there any support groups that meet for Chiari survivors, sufferers in Knoxville, TN. My daughter had decompression surgery a year and a half ago. Since then she has been suffering from headaches and mind seizures as well as fear, depression and anxiety. She has had to quit her job and we are probably going to have to file for disability for her. I think a support group would help her feel not so all alone.

Avatar f tn First I'm a male 21 years old and live in Garden Grove California. I have anxiety, I haven't seen a doctor and been diagnosed but I've quite had a few panic attacks, also for about 2 or 3 months I couldn't leave the house. My dad has anxiety as well and although he kind of got it he didn't at the same time. I got an anxiety workbook which had a section on some other things including OCD and depression. In the check for depression I showed 7 of the 9 signs for it.
Avatar m tn Many factors like family history, genetic disorder, symptoms, severity, any history of treatment etc. once diagnosed, the patient of depression can be treated with a number of ways. Medication and psychotherapy are the common ones. Antidepressants help the patients by acting and balancing the neurotransmitters in the brain. They can be taken by consulting a doctor.
1187323 tn?1264440436 I have been on medication for depression and anxiety for a few years. Every few months my psychiatrist has to change my medication as they stop working. Is this common and will I ever find medication that will work long term without having to change the dosages? I'm currently on four different meds for depression and anxiety and one for hypothyroidism.
Avatar n tn This pertains to my first question about the multiple depression medication. Do these cause memory loss as well, for I have told my partner a lot of things about myself in just a matter of 3 months and she doesn't seem to remember most of those things. She also seems apathetic about what and how her kids talk to her. I don't know if this is a result of this medication or not.
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.
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 Hey there, this is my first time doing a post... Found out last week I'm pregnant, I'm currently 5 weeks! I couldn'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).

Tell yout dr. And ask for support groups.
Avatar f tn i have a question about a med. Its lexapro. i was wondering if u can get pregnant while u are on it. if so what do i have to do.
1468734 tn?1316535897 Thats why I was wondering if any one knew of any support group meetings in my area that area like AA or NA only for depression. The only groups I found so far meet only twice a month. I need way more. Would any one know of such a meeting or organization in the Flint, Genesee county Michigan area that might fit the bill? Any how, my prayers are with you all for I know how you feel. Been to the bottom many times. Black, all consuming and empty. Bless each and every one.
1874452 tn?1349634777 Hi, my name is Lynn and I have had depression for many years, but once I changed my way of thinking, I changed my way of life. I went for psychotherapy sessions and emotional support groups. They can help you change your negative thinking into something positive. You can build self confidence and motivation in yourself. Also taking antidepressant medication can help. See a psychiatriast and ask him about psychotherapy. It really does help.
