Avatar n tn I am 37 year old single woman, never married, never had children. History of depression treated with prozac. Had hysterectomy. Wanted children very badly. I guess I am grieving. Have withdrawn. Am very sad, angry. Have no patience. Quick to anger. I entered therapy, went about three times, she was a family therapist. Just dont want to go.

Avatar f tn Smoking although clearly a good idea to stop does of course have withdrawal symptoms and also in noting why people with schizophrenia often smoked scientists are studying a new generation of antipsychotics based on the effects of nicotine (without the harmful effects). Clinical findings aside stopping smoking is rough for anyone so you can expect things to be difficult for a while and for standard symptoms from bipolar to worsen for a while.
Avatar m tn They are very similar and have same symptoms. Manic depression is hyperactivity. And depression is inattentive or withdrawal from interests. Start prescribing the adhd meds for depression or inattentive attention disorder, and, mood stabilization meds for maniac disorders or hyperactivity and leave psychotherapy for environmental issues and coping skills for change.
Avatar f tn Basically, he said that if you are suffering from a mental illness - like depression, anxiety, panic attacks, et al - that the symptoms will manifest in your body. He is a scientist and so believes that there is a reason for everything. There is a reason you are suffering so much grief and cannot let it go. Whether you are depressed and sleeping all the time, or having high blood pressure, or feeling nauseated, or suffering aches & pains, there is a reason.

Avatar f tn I spent three years inside when agorophobia had me by the throat. I've been in, around and through all of the symptoms of major depression, and at my age, I know I have this to look forward to for the rest of my life. Unless a discovery is made, and that might depend on all of us comparing notes. If this is just too weird, I do understand. And you may, like I do, get tired very easily. I'm tired now.

Avatar m tn He had his 1st surgery in Aug 2011 and a duraplasty in March 2012. His symptoms were quite severe which included screaming for hours especially in the nights, drop attacks, urinary problems etc., He was also diagnosed with 'epileptic form dysfunction' in September 2012. We see a neurologist, neurosurgeon and a sleep study doctor. His recent sleep study showed sleep apnea. His headaches have now returned and I notice them being especially bad when he cries.

These reactions can be sometimes more severe in little children because everything is so close together due to their small frames...small nasal passages and smaller airways. Secondly, children's immune systems are not as strong as an older child or an adult. Their immune systems are constantly getting bombarded by viruses, bacteria, and allergens because of them being in daycare, school, or in close proximity to the floor.

676912 tn?1332816151 So it sounds like you get angry and irritated often because of something that is happening in your environment which doesn't sound in its self like bipolar, but i am not a doctor so I can't diagnose you any way. If you talk to a doctor, you can always turn down medication, and i only ever suggest to anyone to only take medication if that want to and make sure the doctor doesn't push them into something they don't want.
Avatar n tn Hi, I'll look at the other post. But this post really speaks to me. Depression in children can be very scary. And very real. I'll look at your other post.
1130576 tn?1260154370 My story is straight. I am but one individual and the way my life went is not representative of anything but my life. I did not know I was depressed until I was 35 Mammo. I had dythsmia and thought it was normal so I just lived with it. If you didn't take note of the stats on that last link perhaps you will believe the World Health Organisation, the authority on all health problems world wide.
603015 tn?1329866573 I believe it is used in children. The psychiatrist needs to make a conclusive diagnosis first and if the tics started after she took medication he definitely needs to find out if that's the cause.
5624042 tn?1372200166 Many young children also lash out because of low self-esteem, isolation, and a sense of failure and anxiety. Sadness and depression is often linked with anger in young children. Young children also tend to act out of angry defiance to assert independence when they feel unimportant and lacking control over their lives. It is important not to dismiss their transgressions, because childhood-onset anger and aggression is correlated with serious problems later in life.
Avatar f tn You have all the classic symptoms of depression and it's important to get help so you can nip this in the bud and move on! Talk to your parents, they have to realize that everything has changed with you. If your parents don't take you seriously put it in a letter to them...often when we read something we truly hear what is being said.
Avatar f tn Hang in there, you may have to try a few meds + have you considered getting treatment for the menapusal symptoms, horminal or whatever? Try to walk away from your children or just ignore. My son is 18 and i still have to tell him to wipe his mouth after eating, LOL, they could drive you mad, but dont get mad. You are causing yourself regret. Run into the bedroom and thump a pillow, try to get a break. Wash your face in the bathroom.
Avatar n tn My doctor just took me off Lexapro and put me back on Zoloft (100 mg in the a.m.) at my request because it seemed to help a little bit in preventing the headaches and migraines in the past. She also prescribed Amitriptyline (50 mg at bedtime) to prevent the headaches. I am also on 25 mg Hydrochlorothiazide (in the a.m.) to control my blood pressure. Are these drugs safe while trying to get pregnant, during pregnancy, and while breastfeeding or is there another recommendation?
190673 tn?1259206866 In addition to medication and talk therapy, excercise and physical activity is good for helping depression as people tend to slow down and become undermotivated during depressive episodes but interaction with people is an essential part of it as well as depression often leads people to self isolate.
1065872 tn?1265657330 Looking back over the last 5 years, I have been depressed and caught up in a world of unreality (going into my world) dwelling in the past. I often, flet an unreal feeling - was I really alive? With tiredness, numbness, worthlessness and so on. I started to drink a lot again and self harm a bit, for a couple of years. I have stopped this, but I then started drinking and taking pills, to hurt myself. I have not been hospitalized or anything.
Avatar f tn Namaste, Handling four kids can certainly cause alot of sress in addition to work, whetheer you work as a housewife or have an outside job. What you descibe could in fact, be a reaction to depression. In order to determine this however, you need to see your doctor(with all symptoms in hand) or a mental health provider. People no longer have to suffer depression since there are alternatives such as counseling and medication available.
7087196 tn?1389309719 I was diagnosed with Bi-Polar in 2005 and also had a child in 2005. My son is now 8 years old and acts like I did around his age. He says and acts in violent ways. He has not done anything to extreme thankfully.
Avatar n tn I have suffered all my life with anxiety and depression. Different times over the years I have tried medications. None of them worked for any length of time or didn't work at all. One I took for two years. I saw numerous family docs and they all said pretty much the same thing, "when your kids are older and you can relax all will be ok and you will feel better.
Avatar f tn Hello there, indeed it could be sign of depression and depression is pretty common in miscarriage events. You and your boyfriend need each other more than ever so working on your couple could be a good thing. Another option would be to go for a therapy. You are still young so I do really think the depression is temporary and that you don't need medication. I know such event is hard to forget but you will eventually get over it.
Avatar f tn My husband and I are parents to a 17 year old girl who is a senior in high school. In August of 2013, she started to show some odd behavior and we chalked it up to typical teenage girl stuff. However; since August 2013, these are some of the symptoms/behaviors we are experiencing with her: 1). Does not clean room will have trash, bottles, dirty clothes, food and food wrappers everywhere, 2). Will go to bed at 8:00 p.m.
Avatar n tn I'm afraid that even though he doesn't display classical symptoms of depression, his low self esteem and threats to harm himself may cause him to do something impulsive and rash. Thank you. Your suggestions are appreciated.
Avatar m tn (yet of course you also dont have ADHD) So I myself would question why the doc did this because, yes (besides the zoloft) those meds help, but adding them all together seems a little much and he would either zone out or feel so hyper his mind could not retain information in the correct way. Now just as a side note, I don't know any of his symptoms, but I will say I have and still am conducting research on children being labeled or diagnosed with ADHD when it is really bipolar.
12268405 tn?1427856961 Hello Tanner! Sorry it has taken so long for someone to reply to you. While you have posted in the Depression forum, you actually might try the Schizophrenia forum, because the hallmark of that disorder is hearing voices. This can create paranoia, depression, and confused thinking. Clozapine and Minocycline (Mino is new) are the very best drugs to take for your condition.
