Avatar n tn (i don't want to be on oxy if i don't have to) i've never expierenced this level of post physical depression. is there something about oxy that gives it more of an emotional "buzz saw" than other opiate withdrawal? it seems to me there is, as i've expierenced withdrawl from other opiates and all though they were physically more unpleasent, there was not this compent of emotional. i'm already taking 400 mg of welbutronn a day, and that seems to help some.
Avatar n tn Hi! Does anyone know where there are any chat rooms or other message boards where I can talk concerning many different ares of depression? I have read though most of the forums and haven't noticed any. I posted a message under Zypreza which list some of my problems, if anyone whats to know what I am talking about. Sometimes it just helps to get some things off my mind. Thanks for any advice!
1694934 tn?1306554688 I just posted a couple of photos. I know there are a lot of fakes floating around message boards for their own sick reasons... I just want everyone to know I am 100% real..
190976 tn?1238402871 It took a lot of counseling, therapy, friendship, authentic action, support and changing my anti-depressant medication. I know that DEPRESSION is very common among stroke survivors and I would like to hear from anyone who suffered with depression; anyone who continues to suffer with depression; and what you have used to cope with your depression..... This should give everyone an opportunity to share on a level not often seen on these message boards. Thank You! I hope to hear from you soon!

Avatar f tn I would also suggest that you join the epilepsy foundation website because they have countless references, support groups, and message boards which you can post your concerns about his seizures and the medication he's been prescribed. As a kid with seizures I would advise that you try to explain that even though he has seizures he can do a lot of things other kids do.

Avatar n tn I am bi polar and throidless so I take a mood stabilizer and an anti depressant. When I went hypo for my first RAI I didnt think I was going to make it the depression hit me so hard and I have been through some pretty deep depressions with my bi polar including suicidal thoughts. Here are some tips to help you level out untill you can get things stable.; Eat healthy No Caffiene or sugar as these both aggravate depression. Exercise at least 30 mins a day even if it is just a brisk walk.
Avatar f tn P.S. Please don't post any personal information on the boards!! (email,first&last names,etc). The boards are viewed by everyone!!! You can always private message someone...just hover over that person's name and you'll see the choice for messaging. Hope that helps!! Here if you need anything!!
Avatar n tn But it is so frustrating to watch the scale keep going up and up. I'm on the Bipolar and Depression boards and many there are having the same problems. Seems to be one of the demons we have to face. I ramble on here. (part of my problem...lol) Good luck finding your answer and if you do post it on one of the boards I mentioned for the rest of us. Happy Holidays.
Avatar f tn I never thought about my thyroid being the cause of my sudden weight gain (60 pounds), mensural problems, extreme fatigue, dry skin, hair loss, depression/ anxiety and joint pain. I went into the doctor because I was having prolonged vagnal bleeding(6 month long period ) and they couldn't figure out what was wrong. That's when blood work was done and my TSH was 81! I was put on a very high dose of levothroxine 200 which brought my levels down. But I'm still suffering from hypo symptoms.
Avatar n tn In an ideal world, what would you like to see happen to make your experience a better one? More family involvement? Web viedo in the room? Message groups with others who have had a procedure done in that hospital? Ability to contact a previous heart patient over the phone or even opportunity to meet in person? A welcome to the area package for family members so they can explore the highlights?
Avatar f tn In fact anyone here having trouble should read it It is tampapainclinic.
Avatar n tn Hello.....I am new to the message boards and am looking for some support. I need to know how to overcome this so I can function again!! I am 30 years old and I am have been diagnosed with depression/OCD/anxiety. I have been prescribed Cymbalta and Xanax. I was diagnosed, I believe in 2001 or 2002 although I went undiagnosed for a while. It was not until I had a hospital stay for a suspected heart attack that I was prescribed medications.
Avatar n tn supervision of depression with suicidal tendencies WARNING WITHDRAWAL REACTIONS WITH SELECTIVE SEROTONIN REUPTAKE INHIBITOR ANTIDEPRESSANTS (SSRIS) A withdrawal reaction has been reported with all SSRI antidepressants. The symptoms generally start within one to three days after stopping the drug, and generally resolve within one to two weeks after the drug has been discontinued. Withdrawal symptoms may occur even when the dosage of the drug is gradually decreased.
Avatar m tn I have gone to a few message boards to glean helpful information. Almost to a person, physical activity/exercise is advocated. I lift light weights and walk. Sometimes I get to the end of the driveway for a walk and have to turn back. I just don't have the energy. If I force myself to walk or lift, the effect is that I feel worse than prior to the activity. My regimen is not very strenuous because of severe low and upper chronic back pain.
Avatar n tn Good luck, and if you have any other questions that I can help you with, please feel free to message me directly.
Avatar n tn heyheyhey,,,,there is a very interesting website called prozactruth.com.....that was my beginning of SSRI's ,,,,,but, again ,I emphasize we all have different reactions.... A very good tool I found was by going to the internet, look up a "drug" like an SSRI in your case,,find the "message boards" like this one is and read the "personal" on hands account of people that have taken the drug....loads of info....then you can decide, be informed, educated, etc...
646779 tn?1281999641 ) But honestly, if you work with your doctor with that specific concern in mind, perhaps you'll have a better outcome this time around with regards to medication. AND, there is therapy to add on. If not on medication and feeling like this, a good psychologist can also be worth a million bucks. Life style things can help . . . get out and exercise several times a week and it is mood lifting. Do it with your kids. I have a son who loves soccer and wants me to play with him.
709671 tn?1252929332 i am in depression and its getting worse day by day. i am doing third year engg in I.T. in mumbai. i think of suicide most of the day but thankfully don't have the courage to actually commit it. i have tried hurting myself though. i can't tell my parents as they think only retarded people need counseling. i have given them hints but to no avail. i have started performing very poorly at exams. i just can't concentrate. i feel useless, hopeless, worthless. i lose interest in things very fast.
544292 tn?1268886268 I stick with it because I remember how the T-train caused INCREASED pain all over my body, in places I never imagined I could have pain. I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing.
541063 tn?1227519894 I've been suffering from depression since the last year . the topic is really too much sensitive that i cannot talk openly but there are certain things in my life that really add up in increasing my condition. like my parents are divorced , i lost a friend in a tragic accident, made another one who decided to walk away and my maternal relatives are opposed to me being close to my teacher as he's my only support.
Avatar f tn I can't talk about it except type on message boards searching for answers and unfulfilled hope. This was my first little angel to be. It is terrible. My husband has been so good through it, I'm here alone tonight though and feeling empty inside. Anyone have an answer about the bleeding? Or something related to it? Just wondering.
10175413 tn?1427173851 On previous posts on these message boards, I said that my sleep hadn't been affected by the meds and that is true because even before I started this particular time of Hep C treatment.., I've had chronic insomnia issues. So, I didn't feel that the meds were the direct cause for it. For me, I was diagnosed with PTSD due to an earlier trauma I was living in, in my 20's and that anxiety caused by the trauma has been the main reason for my sleep issues.
Avatar n tn Yes, get off the medication. Why are you still on it? Are you afraid of depression hitting again? I was very pro-antidepressants when I thought I needed them but now I attribute them to making me feel out-of-it, forgetful, slow-minded, uncreative. and i gained weight. I was on lexapro--still in the process of weening off of it, actually. There are TONS of message boards about it out there too--Everything you say sounds exactly like what everyone else says who are on antidepressants.
Avatar n tn Do you think most people writing in these boards are writing their negative experiences. I see SO many people say they gained weight but I wonder what percentage of people that is overall. Of course Wellbutrin is known for weight loss and it would have to be the one time I didn't get a side effect that I wanted! LOL!
Avatar n tn I thought that I could never live this life without depression meds and add medication. One day I realized that life was worth living and living to the fullest. It may have taken me 33 years to get to this point but finally I am content with being off the depression meds and getting advice from my father (God), instead of the doctors. I have started using a juicer in the morning to help with my energy and mood.
652671 tn?1353715765 I am a big proponent of medication COMBINED with talk therapy. You will get a whole myriad of advice here and remember, that is what it is...we are not doctors but many of us have been through the same thing you are going through. At first, I was EXTREMELY against ANY forms of medication but finally captiulated and took the advice of a therapist. It was the best advice I had ever taken.
Avatar n tn You are totally right. My therapist is now my mentor/friend/mother. What a great example of God leading you to whom you need to see. I had given up by the time I found her. I went to a new doctor today and she put me on Buspar to take with my Zoloft temporarily. Taken that before? I did, but it was when I was half dead with depression so it was like spitting on a fire.
