depression

Avatar f tn I don't know why the doctors would be refusing Hepatitis C treatment for people with Depression. Interferon can cause Depression but you won't be using Interferon. There are Interferon free treatments available. Even with Interferon treatments, the doctors treated people with Depression unless they were very unstable or suicidal. I have a long history of Depression and I treated in 2011-2012 for 48 weeks with Interferon, Ribavirin, and Incivek. I did fine.
Avatar n tn PLEASE... does anyone know of a dr in Dallas that has experience with Lyme disease? I can't live like this and it's NOT depression.
142354 tn?1228250348 Congratulations! I'm sure you had your reasons, but for others either SVR or in treatment -- there's generally no reason to risk a biopsy post SVR and there are risks.
Avatar n tn I know this sounds funny, but I'm afraid of the treatment. You see I'm just about to start treatment through a study (vertex). It's not that I am not grateful, just right now I'm seemingly really healthy. From what I've read and seen, this stuff (Interferon) is bad a##. This study you get the regular treatment and their new drug (VX-950), well 1/2 the people get it. I guess my question is do some people not react so bad from treatment?
Avatar n tn These combined factors plus the damage you already have will make treatment later more problematic, barring, of course, more effective treatment. Treatment can be intolerable for some and an cause permanent problems too. So if you do treat, demand the doc communicate with you and address your questions and concerns. Regular blood work to check for treatment induced anemia, thyroid functioning, and the such is essential as is regular evaluation for depression.
1011285 tn?1302120458 Ga guy you seem like you prolly have the most ecperience with sub so I will be asking a lot of questions if you dont mind when Im doing this treatment.
Avatar m tn Let me start I was diagnosed with HEP C GENO 3a biopsy results mild damage 250k copies. Today I start my treatment of peg and copeg. What are the simple side affects I need to look for on shot one? I take it I have had hep for about 3 years possible or more.
Avatar n tn Since then we've tried going back on and weening off, but the depression and severe pain continues. I'm not sure it is paxil withdrawal symptoms, but nothing else works. I am at wits end and fearful she no longer wishes to continue life with this pain. Is there anything we can do???
1139187 tn?1355710247 As we all know, hypothyroidism causes depression. The xanex was making me have a lot of depression, though it was helping the anxiety. I dont mind trying what doctors tell me to do. However, all the endos here (and even at the may) start their sentences off with "you might try_______" OR "maybe you should try______". Not one of them yet has said "look, heres the deal.
Avatar n tn Hi Geri,,,,Welcome aboard! LOL I have had some nausea during treatment but only got sick the first month and actually it was more due to a headache then anything. Alot of people use ginger or ginger cookies and it seems to help settle the stomach. Hopefully,,,you won't have any problems and light sides! Good Luck and let us know how you are doing!
Avatar n tn The findings are based on analysis of data from a Phase III study of pegylated interferon alfa-2a (Pegasys), a longer acting form of the medication interferon. The report was presented November 12, 2001, in Dallas, Texas at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease.
Avatar f tn But now I have a doctor in Dallas. I need cornea treatment, but it is nothing compared to the scare of losing my eye. Medical abuse. I am here the doctor here had said that I was fine and need not return for 6 mos. The medical assistant here had said that my eye was dying.
Avatar n tn Lonewolf, In your case, though, you're not at all deserving of such treatment. Dallas' Mom actually is also undeserving of the treatment she gets, but it's the opposite.. Dallas treats her mother much, much better than her Mom deserves. Someone like you deserves to be treated like Dallas treats her Mom, and your daughter's actions would be much more appropriate for Dallas' Mom. You guys (Mr. Bird is driving me nuts here, he's a frustrated typist) should trade daughters!
Avatar n tn i to have been concerend about how dallas has been doing, as i also have leukeamia and hcv. dallas has been a few months ahead of me in treatment, so ihave tried to follow her progress. my sympathies to her and her family.
Avatar f tn If your anxiety is really a separate condition, it's going to require a separate treatment. And that really complicates things, because very often the recommended treatment for the anxiety condition could be an antidepressant medication -- and antidepressant medications can make bipolar disorder worse!
Avatar n tn I waited until I had symptoms of depression while on treatment, I think week 12 and then my doctor put me on Lexapro. It only took a week to become effective and I went from crying all day and being non-functional to being able to work again and to feeling like I could finish this treatment. It has made a huge difference. The interferon can cause depression. I have not had any side effects from the AD.
983030 tn?1261356662 Hi I've been prescribed Lexapro 10mg for my depression As a recovering addict I can get addicted to almost anything. I do suffer from an ongoing long term dysthmia or mild depression. My doctor thinks I need it - he prescribed it. He said it wasnt as addictive as Endep - which I managed to put down ok. Deep down I wonder if I manipulated the doctor into prescribing it for me. I could have. Like I said I am an addict.
Avatar n tn I've lost 21 lbs so far this treatment and my doctor has never considered lowering my dose of treatment. In fact, I'm on way high doses as part of my regimen. But, you just need to make up your own mind with your doctor's advice.
Avatar n tn Hi sammy, About the best argument for taking the AD's I can think of is that there have been several studies done that show a decrease in tx efficacy with untreated depression. TnHepGuy can probably supply the links to these studies. Remember, the depression is a sx caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain when taking the tx meds. It says nothing about you and should be dealt with just like any other sx.
789911 tn?1368640383 Are you treatment naive? I also use the Liver Institute in Dallas and was set up for an interview last December, hopefully to get into a relapser/responder trial for Telaprevir. As it turned out they did not get the r/r tial for Telaprevir -- all they got was the naive trial. They also did not get the r/r trial for Boceprevir. It sounded like they dropped the ball to me.
1106321 tn?1258584267 hi, my 12 year old son was diagnosed with anorexia,bulimia and bipolar,currently hes under state custody due to all hospital and clinics stays over the last year,including 8-10 weeks at dallas child. hosp..... every time he came home he will start all over again...so now im geting ready for him to come back,maybe by end of jan. 2010, but i feel that im not ready,that i have to do more research andget ppl from my fam.
Avatar f tn I am 40 and I have been having issues with anxiety and depression for a long time. I read an article about how women/girls are affected by ADD differently then males. One thing is that they do well in school until college and there is little structure. They will have higher rates of self injury. My research also showed that most women don't get diagnosed until they are 38 and those who are treated correctly, over 60% find that their symptoms of anxiety and depression go away.
Avatar n tn DOCTORS WOULD SAY I SHOULDN'T SAY THIS, BUT IT APPEARS THAT PEOPLE THAT ARE TYPE 1, THE TREATMENT DOESN'T WORK LONG TERM. IF YOU ARE TYPE 1, I WOULD CONSIDER STOPPING TREATMENT.
568322 tn?1370169040 So for example, a traumatic event can result in elevated production of cortisol. Same thing with interferon and depression. They can disregulate the HPA axis and cause high levels of cortisol to be produced. Why are high levels of cortisol bad? Because that increases your blood sugar and having elevated blood sugar (and obesity) cause a low grade chronic inflammation. Because it lowers immune system markers.
Avatar f tn The company said the drug's wholesale cost would range from $26,400 to $48,400 a patient, depending on the length of treatment. That means treatment will be expensive. Treatment with the current drugs costs $28,000 a patient, according to William Lee, a hepatitis C doctor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. But the new drugs "are clearly a step forward. The demand will be high, and there's no way insurance companies can avoid paying for these," said Dr.
Avatar m tn I was hoping and praying she was wrong, but it may be she was right. There is a holistic Dr. near the Dallas Metroplex that I am wanting to see. After describing my symptoms to his nurse, and her telling him, he felt I might have metal toxicity. Of course until he sees me, he can't be certain as to why these fasciculations are worsening at such a rapid pace. Would this be a good thing to do, be checked out by this integrative medicine physician?

Avatar m tn I have the top rated neurosurgeon in my large CA county so I trust him ... I just don't know what to do. I'm battling depression and trying to find and pray for answers. I have had zero relief of symptoms, save taking diazepam just to be able to get out of bed and do something. The Neuro sent me to a psychiatrist who prescribed seroquil for anxiety depression.... To see how much of my symptoms are emotionally related.
148987 tn?1287809526 Because of last weeks shot, I had decided NOT to travel to the family for thanksgiving, now I'm thinking differently but I don't want to be on the road between SA and Dallas with bad SX in TX, if you know what I mean. Nothing worse than bad SX, for sure.
