Common Questions and Answers about Depression symptoms in rats


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.
477746 tn?1254788147 There are several tests used in animals to determine pain threshold in rats. See Figure 1 for an explanation of the tests. When you give animals a little T, they become like Marv from Sin City and say, "That's all you got *****...." For example, when birds were given supplemental T, they left their feet in the hot water longer than control animals (6). When you castrate a male rat - (this is scientific terminology for "cutting his balls off.
1692704 tn?1307215380 Even when the diagnosis of Lyme disease is clear, optimal treatment of these depressive symptoms is uncertain because in many patients the symptoms persist even after the standard 3 week course of antibiotics. Psychiatrists currently have no guidelines on how to treat these patients.
Avatar n tn These studies have demonstrated that consuming Tyrosine enhances the production of neurotransmitters and may, in fact, alleviate certain symptoms of depression and improve alertness and focus. Also, studies performed by the military have shown that consuming a L-Tyrosine supplement may enhance cognitive performance. What doses of Tyrosine should be taken? There are no definitive studies showing what doses of L-Tyrosine are most effective.
Avatar n tn He told me he has been a doctor for almost 25 years and has seen cases where young women come in with these symptoms and have heart attacks and do not have a thing wrong with the heart. Except for the consumption of caffine and aspartame. He also told me that in those cases the heart was extremely clean, no build up. He saw from the test mine was the same way. I don't know what to think. I have not heard anything about this till just recently. Is it possible? I FELL SOOO STUPID!!
Avatar f tn These compounded hormones do not affect fertility, they are not for birth control purposes, but can certainly help with excessive, irregular bleeding, depression, menopause symptoms and other hormonal imbalances. My heart goes out to all you having problems with the pill. I have a 20 year old, 4 months on the pill, experiencing constant anxiety and depression with anger and bouts of crying over small things. I am helping her find alternatives.
398920 tn?1218782947 Now Guillaume Lucas at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and his team have found a class of antidepressants that reverse symptoms of depression in rats within days. The drug, RS67333, works by binding to a receptor on the surface of brain cells and stimulating them to release more serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps control mood.
Avatar n tn as this can do permanent damage to the nerve cells in your central nervous system(brain and apinal cord), cardiopulmonary system and smooth muscle in your digestive tract( mainly the large intestine as these are the areas of the body where opiate receptors are widely spread. Tapering as slowly as possible will almost eliminate withdrawal symptoms. Once you stop taking them you will probably feel some withdrawal symptoms so always taper as slowly as possible toward the end. xoxo- D.
Avatar m tn I have some questions. I was in kentucky, living with this girl... there were mice/rats in the house, which i attempted to get rid of while i was there to no avail. Is lyme more common in kentucky then in other places? Could i have gotton it from a rat/mouse(they says its how ticks get it)? Since I tested negative to all those stds and hiv, i am sure it has to be an infection that can impair my immune system. I have read that lyme suppresses your immune system...
Avatar n tn I personally believe it’s due to extreme stress and depression. My symptoms started right after an accident I was in with my two kids and husband. My older child was two and the younger one was only 2 months, so you could imagine how scary that was. It was a car accident by the way. We ran off the road because of a drunken man, he came in front of our car suddenly...
4522800 tn?1470329434 One last major contributor to addiction too. An anxious depression is the type of depression in which the next two hours seems like the rest of your life, and you must do something to change how you feel. It is an agitated feeling, very different from the more melancholy depression that causes a person to sit in bed all day unable to get up or get dressed.
Avatar m tn Drugs that deplete norepinephrine in the CNS (reserpine-like drugs) produce depression-like symptoms (e.g., locomotor hypoactivity) in animal models, whereas drugs that increase norepinephrine levels, such as MAOIs and TCAs, are associated with antidepressant-like effects68. One hypothesis is that these antidepressant-like effects may occur through delayed postsynaptic receptor desensitization, leading to increased receptor responsivity69.
Avatar m tn An FDA spokesman said the agency has revoked device approvals before, although the step is rare. ReGen, based in Hackensack, N.J., asked the FDA in 2005 to approve its device under the so-called 510k system, which allows speedy approval for devices that are similar to products already on the market. ReGen argued that the Menaflex was comparable to shoulder joint implants sold by Johnson & Johnson, Stryker and other companies.
Avatar m tn But after eating a diet filled with blueberries they all performed better, even the rats who were fed blueberries for just one month. In fact, in just one month's time, they scored just as well as the young rats in the study. On the other hand, the aging rats fed a normal diet performed worse on later tests. In addition, the aging rats fed blueberries for at least two months kept their young brains.
Avatar n tn I have had circulation problems in my leg as well... but have never had any symptoms like this. I would think circulation problems would show up with more concerns than a vibration. I would also agree not a muscle twitch, because there is no "twitch" to it. Because nerves innervate muscles (which is why nerve damage causes strength issues) then I would guess this is a nerve thing, since the muscle in my leg is more sore than usual this week.
475586 tn?1225027354 One particular medical journal article that I was directed to was about rats that were exposed to low levels of mercury. These rats became sick with Lupus-like symptoms and started produce the very specific Nucleolar antibodies that I also display. 'Mercury?' I thought, 'Well, that's fine for the rats that were actually purposely exposed to it, but where would I have ever picked up something like that?
Avatar f tn Do you take thyroid hormones, yet still suffer from fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, depression, or other hypothyroid symptoms? Are your symptoms steadily worsening while your blood tests stay the same? Do your symptoms go untreated because your lab tests are normal? I will answer these questions as they are totally rediculous...bear in mind I have no thyroid and am on a T4 med ONLY. 1. Yes I take thyroxin (T4 med) 2.No I dont suffer from excessive fatigue..
Avatar n tn FYI - I don't however have the smell when watching tv or when I am in front of the computer - it is ALL DAY LONG. Someone also mentioned other symptoms etc. I have had no colds, my thyroid is perfect, I eat super healthy (vegan), dont use deodorant (no I am not a hippie), I dont feel like i have a sinus infection (feel pretty good actually), have not taken an antibiotic in over 8+ years...
Avatar f tn “ Tinea barbae is a superficial dermatophyte infection that is limited to the bearded areas of the face and neck and occurs almost exclusively in older adolescent and adult males. Symptoms include inflammatory, deep, kerion-like plaques and noninflammatory superficial patches and lumps resembling bacterial folliculitis. The hair breaks off below the skin surface. It is caused by several dermatophytes. Trichophyton species are most common.
Avatar n tn If nothing else it will be therapeutic to discuss these issues with you all. Depression is starting to set in over these issues and I can't help but think there has got to be some way to fight back and regain some confidence and acceptance that age will happen but we don't need to sit back and go down without a fight. I am 57 and will confess that I have not taken very good care of myself. But that is going to change, starting now.
Avatar m tn More recent reports have shown that genistein, the so-called anti-cancer compound found in soy foods, causes fragmentation of DNA in rats eating both low- and high-dose soy diets. Fragmented DNA can lead to cancer and worsening of neurodegenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Unfortunately, no studies have been done to address soy’s effects on depression and suicide risk. But there are several studies that implicate soy in these disorders.

Avatar n tn Impairment of Fertility - Reproduction and fertility studies in rats showed no effects on male or female fertility at oral doses of up to 2 times the maximum recommended human dose on a mg/m^2 basis." I am aware of no other studies in this regard. I just wanted to make sure that your question is about male fertility and not male sexual dysfunction. Venlafaxine nearly always results in male sexual dysfunction, including loss of libido, delayed ejaculation and abnormal ejaculation.
Avatar m tn Reproductive studies in animals were performed in mice, rats, and two strains of rabbits. Occasional anomalies (reduction of tarsals, tibia, metatarsals, malrotated limbs, gastroschisis, malformed skull, and microphthalmia) were seen in drug-treated rabbits without relationship to dosage. Although all of these anomalies were not present in the concurrent control group, they have been reported to occur randomly in historical controls.
3060903 tn?1398568723 Everyone with RA will experience flares differently, but it is common for RA symptoms to come and go in waves. RA flares usually begin with an initial phase, during which people may sense that something is not quite right and that a flare is coming soon. The distinct symptoms of the flare will follow.
483733 tn?1326802046 We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas. In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. We've seen many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly. This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia.
318928 tn?1248181016 Decreased pup weight and viability were noted at 10 times the human dose (on a mg/kg basis) in rats. No comments were made concerning maternal toxicity at these doses. Treatment of pregnant rats with fluoxetine (#1898; 8 mg/kg/d) but not venlafaxine (40 mg/kg/d and 80 mg/kg/d) during the last week of the 3- week gestation resulted in a one-half day decrease in length of gestation (6).
Avatar f tn The conclusion of the first study was, "which could result in further decreases in dopaminergic signaling when the individual with ADHD is not medicated (i.e. over weekend holidays)." duh, of course you will have less dopaminergic signaling when you are off the medication. The whole reason you are on it is to increase the signaling. Also, it was billed as a long term study - and it lasted one year.
544292 tn?1268886268 Various withdrawal effects may include shakes, shivers, diarrhea, nausea, and possible flu-like symptoms. Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here. The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose).
