Depression medication injection

Common Questions and Answers about Depression medication injection


Avatar m tn Not dealing with your diabetes can very well be making your depression worse. With proper treatment you should see improvement with your depression and your general health as well. As far as the other symptoms 'pins and needles, etc.' these could very well be the early signs of neuropathy which is very common in uncontrolled diabetes. I have severe polyneuropathy and believe me when I say that things will not get better from here. Pain 24/7 will make depression seem like a mere cold.
Avatar n tn After a number of years of suffering from symptoms of hypothyroidism (25 lb weight gain during last 3 yrs despite diet of less than 1500 calories, depression, fatigue, thinning hair, brittle nails, and recently discovered I have high cholesterol, fasting glucose of 99, vitamin D level (total) of 21, and shoulder impringement/rotator cuff tear) my G.P. ordered a thyroid test for me and my TSH was 3.12 with 1.0 T4 free (I was told that is normal). I am a 48 year old woman, 5'1", 145 pounds.
Avatar f tn But if not, he has to view it like any other medical condition requiring daily medication to control the symptoms. Medication can give him his life back, and peace, with the ability to live a normal, anxiety free life. Have him go back to the psychaitrist and make sure he works very closely with him while on medication, the doctor wants and needs to know if your son is having any problems with the medication and relies on your son to keep him informed.
Avatar n tn It depends, I originally got the spots, then stopped getting them. It also depends upon which medication I'm injection now (i.e. IFN, Procrit, Neupogen) as to whether I get them now or not.
Avatar n tn If you are suffering from a psychotic illness, the only treatment is medication, so it's a case of getting the dose right for you and the medication right for you. But I ask because a lot of docs are using anti-psychotics on people who don't suffer from a psychotic illness these days, usually when other things haven't worked but sometimes because they just love to use drugs and don't respect them.
Avatar n tn Oh, and just as an after thought, I've also had the implant in my arm which did exactly the same as the flipping injection so avoid that aswell if you've had problems with the depo injection.
Avatar n tn hahaha Now I'm getting punchy reading all posts about depression,,,,And I have this mental picture in my mind,,,kinda like a cartoon,,,ya know....Everyone out there in cyberland is sitting in front of computers with very thin hair,,boney and covered in riba rash,,,And asking..."But how positive can a person be" LOL Awwww Lou,,,Like the dress and accessories,,,ever so nice!!

Avatar f tn It was quite a different experience than the first time. She used x-rays to guide the injection. Also, I had pain a little higher around one of the screws on the right side and she injected that area. I was prone for the procedure and while she was injecting the medication in the SI joint on the right side, I suddenly got the strangest sensation in my left leg. My whole leg felt like it was so very hot. My foot was so hot it felt like I was standing on hot coals. It was extremely intense.
647554 tn?1227120082 I've been put back on my medication as I wasn't doing so good. Iam on Depixol injection fortnightly and Amisulpride daily. The Side effects are killing me anyone know what can help please.
Avatar f tn I have seen three different doctors about my headaches and they have all told me the same thing, that I can not take the "normal" migraine medication for pain,due to the fact that I have hemiplegic migraines.They have all told me that I am to use Morhpine for pain control, which I have been on for the last five years. I use this medication when I have a flare up and do not use it if my headaches are under control.
Avatar n tn I used Prozac, Remeron, Seroquil, Diazapam and pain medication. Still had difficulty with depression, anxiety and repetitive thoughts but I made it till my body really did give out and I hopefully cleared. I didn't have to work in that drugged state so again I realize how fortunate I have been. I'm really kind of embarassed that I used all those scapegotes but I made it and IAM STILL ME (well,mostly anyway).
Avatar f tn I have clearly discoloured skin patches where my injection sites were. I thought they might go away eventually but approx 18 months post treatment, it's clearly not going to happen. They haven't faded whatsoever. Looks like they are here to stay. The left side is about 1-1/2 " in a ragged circular patch and the right side is blotchier and larger but same thing. Not going to look pretty if I ever get myself back into a bikini (hey, a girl can dream) but I'll live.
469210 tn?1219191728 Fioricet is a barbiturate sedative (butalbital) mixed with acetaminophen medication and caffeine. This non-narcotic pain medication and relaxant is often prescribed for tension headaches caused by contractions of the muscles in the neck and shoulder area, and migraine. Butalbital is habit-forming and potentially abusable. acetaminophen = Tylenol Before taking this medication, tell your doctor if you have: kidney disease liver disease (!
Avatar f tn Hello I'm just curious what kind of medication those with ms are taking? What some feel is best and why and for those that choose to go un medicated why they have decided that? I'm really not sure how to approach this and I've done a lot of researching on the internet but I'd prefer to get feedback from people first hand.
Avatar f tn she is suffering from depression and anxiety. her symptoms are crying for multiple reasons, no willingness to live, doesnt find happiness anywhere and in anything. she feels isolated from inside..she cries in front of whomsoever she meets in the entire day. she is under a lotof medication and almost 3 physchiatrists hav been changed in the process.
Avatar f tn Is there any relationship between depression, fibromyalgia and a cervical spine injection (nerve block)? I recently went through a nerve block procedure and have been feeling more depressed. The procedure (for me) was very painful and I seem to be having a hard time recovering. Can it be related?
Avatar f tn Most chronic pain patients are dependant on their opioid medication such that if the medication is abruptly stopped, withdrawal symptoms would occur...the same symptoms happen to an addict as well. Difference is chronic pain patients in withdrawal don't crave their medications psychologically for the "high", they simply don't feel well.
Avatar m tn So i ask my doctor why she is doing this and she said that its time to get off of the medication. Which is fine by me but I want to know why I'm in constant pain and also something non-narcotic to manage that pain if cannot be fixed. I don't feel as though i deserve to be treated this way and i don't really know who or where to turn for this type of thing. I would appreciate some advice -Thanks.
1149087 tn?1415320149 my question now is if anyone here has any experience or knowledge regarding people with longstanding recurrent major depression who need to take a disease modifying medication? i'm 34 years old and have suffered from recurrent major depressive episodes since i was 23.
Avatar m tn I am concerned that I may have serious nerve damage if the injection I had hit my sciatic nerve directly. Would an injection of lidocaine and methylprednisone help my symptoms?
5648368 tn?1371627864 Although the existing pain in my right shoulder, neck and back increased substantially following the injection (as the pain always does, especially right at the point of injection), my pain level has returned to the regular 5 to 7 on a scale of 1 to 10. My question is related to the knot formed at the trigger point injection site and what I can do about it.
145315 tn?1192241113 Has anyone tried marijuana to help with feelings of depression? Can it be harmful to one while on treatment. I haven't smoked in 10 years, but the way I've been feeling lately, I've been thinking about it. It use to make me laugh alot. I just finish shot 7 and I actually don't feel bad at this time, but there's tomorrow. Has anyone's face gotten smaller during treatment. Thanks All.
Avatar f tn I know that some of the treatments can cause depression, suicidal ideation, etc. I have a history of depression. In 1997, I was tested for hepatitis C. I am positive. The doctor told me I had 2 to 5 years to live and to get my things in order. I had a child in school. I was devastated. I think all of us with this chronic illness have encountered depression. My question is this: can a doctor refuse to allow treatment because of a history of (controlled) depression?
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.
Avatar n tn I found it no problem after about my 8th shot. Also keep in mind that every injection person/injection site is a little different. As far as using the thigh, I was told to use the outer part, not to inject into the top. But again, here is where your nurse or the video should be able to help you. Good luck!
579258 tn?1250652943 Did not see a place to clarify in my tracker .. so wanted to make a note here. Migraine - early am - Was high intensity and used hydrocodone. Migraine - evening - Was one step lower in intensity and used tylenol with codeine Migraine - continued evening - One step lower yet in intensity and chose Advil. Hoping that going to sleep with Advil will help it go away .. hate to use prescription meds unless I have to .. it's always a gamble at this point.
1149087 tn?1415320149 i am continuing with the rebif, but it depends how it turns out, as my state before was a bit different, yes i was completely devastated by the diagnosis, but my depression was definitely under control with medication, i could still work full-time and focus on my work, too. ok, i wasn't having much fun otherwise and completely exhausted in the evenings, but still, i was able to do what i needed to do.
Avatar n tn 2. Taking Wellbutrin or any psychiatric medication how long would you say I should stay on it before I should expect some sort of results. I believe I have been depressed a good deal of my life if that has any bearing.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with sever depression and anxiety about a year and a half ago directly after spine surgery. I took Lexapro for a while increased dosage twice then added Seroquil and increased its dosage 3 times. After a few months gaining all the weight I had lost back(nearly 40 pounds) I tapered off all the meds. I have recently had knee surgery and a Gel One injection. I thought my health problems were behind me. Two months later I find myself nervous all the time.
