Avatar m tn I've been on Klonopin, but the detox unit said 'no more.' I take Wellbutrin and Lamictal for depression and mood stabilization and Clonidine for high blood pressure. Does anyone have any suggestions for something to relieve some of this anxiety? I absolutely have to call my psych md tomorrow and tell him about this since he's been off for winter break. Are there any OTC's that would help out in the event my md tells me to wait until my appt. on Jan. 14? One last thing.

Avatar m tn and this eventually led to my mental illness anxiety, clinical major psychotic depression, and OCD for 5 years now. My crash down is better than before but I have not recovered from mental illness. First time I was treated with during Winter 2007 tripletail, seroquol, effexor for 9 months. I came off medication and I felt so drained that I could not do anything over Summer of 2008.
663386 tn?1283646468 What experience have others had with counselling, medication and duration of depression beyond the end of Pegasys treatment? Grateful for any advice the group has.
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.
2107676 tn?1388977459 I guess that's from lack of sleep. Is there an OTC medication for anxiety??? I think I could get someone to pick it up for me.
Avatar n tn i am now 18 years old and getting my tonsils out in a few days to stop the infection mainly to treat the anxiety and depression.

Avatar n tn Taking arbidopa and levodopa to increase dopamine levels and Tryptophan to increase serotonin levels its a good medication to treat depression? What about MAOIs, LSD and MDMA?
Avatar f tn But although there are some natural remedies that work on depression they have not found any that can replace standard medication. In Europe natural remedies are prescribed but in the U.S. they are unregulated so you don't know what you are getting. But if anything is being used against depression it must be regulated by a doctor. Regardless you said you said you had suicidal thoughts. That is something you need to speak to someone about.
Avatar f tn hi, i am also a depression patient suffering from years ,recently statred medication,i was very sucidal but after attending a course of healing i am feeling much better and sucidal thoughts are completely subsided, (though i am using antidepressants also, i feel the healing has contributed more for my recovery), i know how terrible life seems with depression thats the reason i am sharing it with u all, however it depends on ur individual belief too.......... the details are ...............
Avatar n tn He has severe mood swings after taking Remicade and then high and lows that resemble Depression. Are there any reported cases of this happening with anyone else?
1175284 tn?1263976683 it's on the internet and also i would suggest seeing a homeopathic doctor for your bleeding and hormone issues. I don't have insurance either and they are very reasonable and its all natural. good luck.
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone has been on birth control pills and have suffered from anxiety or depression issues? I have been on the pill for 11yrs now and cant take how I am feeling anymore. I went on the pill for irregular periods, but since then I have been feeling blah, libido has decreased severely, I have sinus problems- I found out I have no allergies- so I think it is related to axiety, I worry constantly about everything; I get so nervous I get light headed sometimes.
Avatar n tn John's Wort has shown to help some with depression, but as with medication, no particular herb will work for most people. Natural medicine is generally used with a combination of remedies including some that are not actually natural -- these three herbs are definitely just plants, but amino acids, which are actually pharmaceutical products in that they have to be isolated and are manufactured in a lab whereas natural amino acids are just components of protein, can be very helpful as well.
Avatar n tn And every single thing I've just said, and every thing you're doing, you should not do if you're taking any medication to treat your depression or your insomnia -- depending on the drug, they target the same neurotransmitters and you don't want an overload. I'd try melatonin if I were you, about 1mg (most people take too high a dose) to start and see if it isn't your body clock that's off.
Avatar m tn I have a friend that went through the same problem and her doctor prescribed an anxiety medication. So since mine doesn't want to prescribe a medication I thought I could try a over the counter solution.
1891512 tn?1321137699 I think they work on mild depression, but not severe depression. Perhaps you need to take a higher dosage of Paxil, or talk to doctor about changing your medication. Some people say your body gets used to a drug and after a time it is not so efficient. I have been on many, many different anti depressants over the past 20 years.
1076391 tn?1258415841 ive been taking some homeopathic medication for 2 days,and it says i will only feel the effect after 1-2 weeks do you think homoephatic medications can surely help anxiety?
Avatar m tn It's unfortunate he views medication the way he does. The medication does not produce emotions. Sometimes one can feel like a zombie while on it for the first few weeks due to drowsiness side effects; however, it does NOT produce emotions. That's on him to produce them. And unfortunately, depression is a brain chemical imbalance. It's physical in cause but emotional in how it presents itself.
Avatar m tn I use melatonin and a homeopathic remedy called Calm's Forte for sleep. I'd try something like that before I'd resort to medication. As for Cymbalta, haven't done that one and wouldn't, it's bad enough going through what drugs that only target serotonin do let alone one that targets two neurotransmitters. If you don't suffer from depression, I'd think that's the wrong med anyway. But I'm sure there are many on this site who have liked it; that's baseball.
Avatar m tn I was a bit disturbed though that the doctor pushed for her to simultaneously see a psychiatrist about depression medication. He said that not having periods can be from anxiety and depression. My daughter was crying at the appointment because she had talked to her friend's mom about thyroid issues and was hoping to walk out of the appointment with a trial run of thyroid medication. Her friend's mom had told her that within a couple of days of being on the medication she felt great.
Avatar m tn i am taking zoloft, I have heard of many natural remedies to battle depression. kira St johns with 5htp, etc. Does anyone have a recommendation, specific brand and product?
2063301 tn?1343836674 Thankyou for a great reply. But I wanted to add in a note that I took homeopathic medication to balance my hormones and then for the start of my menses. And now the doctor is prescribing me medication for the regulation of my cycles. And I also wanted to ask that what are the results of the causes that you mentioned earlier? And if I loose weight then will I be able to have my cycles regularly?
Avatar f tn Yes, I believe the Topamax (Topiramate) is directly responsible for the depression returning. Depression is listed as a side effect with a greater than 10% incidence rate which is considered very common. I've noticed that people will be prescribed drugs that are known to cause depression when they are on antidepressants as if the doctor believes the antidepressant will cancel out that side effect, but this usually is not the case. You should talk about getting on another drug for migraines.
Avatar n tn I've gone through the depression angle with him but antidepressants didn't really help and, like virtually all medication prescribed to him, except his heart medication, he couldn't be bothered to keep taking it and questioning or reminding him simply led to more anger. Sorry, not much help but just to let you know there are other people out there suffering the same.
Avatar n tn It is simple and will rule out any other possible causes. Gastritis is lifestyle as well as medication. You do need to avoid foods that cause it and look at lifestyle issues - like stopping smoking if you smoke, stress management, weight control, exercise, etc. Drugs help but do not cure - I take pantoprazole (similar to prevacid) daily - unless you find the cause of the problems. I have mixed results with drugs - sometime better, sometimes worse.
Avatar m tn Hi, i have suffered from Anixty and mild depression for a year now, i also have cystic fibrosis. I have tried medication but they seem to make me feel worse, i was thinking about trying 5-HTP my question is i drink 2 cups of korean ginseng tea and take Fish oils, Vitamin b complex, my medication for my cystic Fibroisis and i am worried that i may be taking too many supplements, will adding the 5-htp do me any harm?
Avatar m tn Herbs are best used in combination, and if you're on medication, that eliminates many. I've found a compound called Serenity by Gaia to be good, also ignatia amara and gelsemnium homeopathic remedies. Taurine is also helpful, as it makes GABA in combination with B6. But the whole package would include 5-HTP and some other stuff. A good book to read on this is Natural Highs by Hyla Cass, a psychiatrist at UCLA.
