Depression treatment exercise

Common Questions and Answers about Depression treatment exercise


5864500 tn?1380893197 If you have truly tried a lot of different meds and therapy and just haven't seen any improvement, you may have a tougher case of depression (called treatment resistant depression). Your doc could shed light on that for you, if he/she feels that may be the problem. If that is the case, and you're doing as much as you can to address it, trying different meds and working hard yourself, then it may be time to discuss treatment options like ECT or electroconvulsive therapy.
Avatar n tn Aerobic exercise is at the top of list of things a person on treatment should do to minimize the all too frequent depression that accompanies treatment. God bless!
Avatar f tn I'm at week 27 of my treatment. Prior to treatment I was an exercise nut of sorts. I ran, walked, bicycled (up to 100 miles a day), canoed, etc. so I thought I would surely be able to continue to do some sort of exercise while on treatment. NOT! Since week 1, I have not been able to do anything other than do whatever it takes to complete a 40 hour work week (a desk job).
Avatar f tn Funny story about exersise and depression.... I was struck down with severe depression at the age of 23. At that time I was in my 5th year of very extensive and intense body building and was at the competitive level. My physical state was off the chart perfect and yet I fell into a very dark place for no situational reason at all, as everything was perfect in my life and I had never suffered any past trama. Months later it got so bad that I attempted suicide and was hospitalized.

Avatar m tn Someone knows natural remedies for depression but without allopathic chemicals?Thanks!
Avatar f tn Have you sought treatment for depression? Were you depressed before problems with drinking? Many people with depression self medicate with alcohol. Since it's a depressant it only makes the underlying condition worse. Going to AA is a great thing and many positive things can come from it. If it doesn't help relieve your depression symptoms then seek further help. Let us know how you make out.
Avatar f tn Now I am a single mother with my miracle son who was born a little after a year from me finishing my treatment for cancer. But now I am having so many anger problems and depression I have a serious concern for my son's health and mine. I've lost my temper a few times now and i don't feel like I'm in control of any of my emotions. I just know, I need help. My mother and family have been giving me ideas but nothing has worked. I'm really worried I'm gonna lose any bit of sanity I have left.
Avatar m tn If you are depressed and having trouble finding the will to live, it would be so very important that you seek treatment. Talk to your mom and be honest, please. One of the reasons you may be fighting with her is it is an outlet to your stress and she is a safe person. Try not to fall into this trap with your loved ones. It becomes a pattern and negatively impacts relationships now and in the future. Find OTHER outlets. I want to recommend that you get some exercise on a regular basis.
Avatar f tn If you feel this is all becoming over-whelming for you, then see a psychiatrist and the two of you determine what route of treatment is best for you. Depression can make it hard for us to be motivated to do anything, or even think straight, and this may be your problem. See a psychiatrist and go from there. Good luck and take care.
2105456 tn?1334368647 And my diagnose was major Depression......And I did drink....I wanted to change and I wanted gastric bypass surgery was told Yes.....Went to all the hoops..................And was told no..............I knew the risks...............He knew even got a green light from the committee................I was a smoker so I had to stop for 6 months I did..its going on 5years can't seem to adjust to the fact that those people lied.....
Avatar m tn That said, check with your doctor first to make sure that the rest of your body is okay for exercise, i.e., your heart, lungs, etc. I exercised all the way through my last treatment even and that was when I was on Pegasys interferon and Ribavirin and Sovaldi. It is a tremendous help with depression and muscle/joint pain. I honestly don't see how I could have done as well as I have with having had Hep C for 33 years, if I had not exercised. I wish you great success with going forward.
Avatar f tn Felt real bad with fatigue, brainfog, moodiness, headaches, forgetfulness, depression, etc. You all now the post treatment side effects. And how desperately you're trying to move ahead in your life and get back on your feet and be able to do the things you once enjoyed. I say it lasted a well over two years for me. Last summer of 2006 I went through what it felt like a bad case of the flu. Body aches, headaches, very tired for about a month and half.
Avatar f tn I haven't visited this forum in quite sometime. I am 9 months Post Treatment and am battling Depression & Severe Mood Swings - I feel like I'm going CRAZY!!! Directly after treatment I was so happy that it was finally over, I did all kinds of things that I never would do throughout the summer, just enjoying life to the fullest. Now I'm angry or crying all the time, I've tried diet, exercise, anything to shake myself out of it, but nothing seems to help.
901137 tn?1267629789 I have treatment resistant moderate depression. (My doctor characterizes it as "moderate" as I am able to function on a daily basis. While saying this he acknowledges that it doesn't feel moderate to me) I tend to keep the hurt to myself. I was wondering if there are others who are experiencing the same situation.
Avatar f tn Sorry your treatment has not worked. Can you tell me a little about your experience.
Avatar m tn Researchers have discovered that exercise allows your body to eliminate kynurenine, a harmful protein associated with depression. The link between inflammation and depression, your body metabolizes kynurenine in the first place by a process that is activated by stress and inflammatory factors. Include in your diet a high quality animal-based omega-3 fat, like krill oil. This may be the single most important nutrient for optimal brain function, thereby easing symptoms of depression.
408958 tn?1214847183 If your already on an antidepressant (they take a few weeks to kick in) and they are not working, try exercising everyday (at a light to moderate level). Exercise has been proven to help depression, and it also lessons the side effects of tx. Hang in there!
Avatar f tn I've tried antidepressants in the past for depression and they've never agreed with me, so I won't take one when I was on treatment. I've never done CrossFit so, I can't answer on that, on whether or not you would be able to handle the intense workout that is on treatment. But, you know your body and if you are already doing it regularly now, it should not be impossible for you to try to do it on treatment.
Avatar n tn Is there another way to fight the ups and downs and depression? Do i have a chemical imbalance since the treatment? Should i try Zoloft again? Is there a homeopathic way to stop feeling so lousy?
Avatar f tn Not even that one political thread and I really had things I wanted to say to I've not been doing well. I made it all the way through treatment with no depression and no meds other than the ones to deal with the wild mood swings. And now that I've done treatment, I've sunk into this deep dark depression. I've been quietly trying to battle it and I'm not doing well. It's completely irrational. It isn't because I got pulled off treatment early, that's not what I'm focused on.
955560 tn?1250198145 He/she might first want to rule out physiological causes of the anxiety / panic (like a thyroid issue or vitamin / mineral deficiency). You can then discuss what treatment options would be best for you. These might include exercise, talk therapy, relaxation techniques, medication or a combination of these. All the best..
1297538 tn?1278549702 Hi Guys, Seems like I've been hit really hard with depression especially in the morning lately. This wednesday will be 2 weeks since I started my treatment and needless to say... it has be a roller-coaster for me. I have felt SO horrible and like I am literally loosing my mind. Before I was dx with Lyme one of the many doctors I saw prescribed me Zoloft for the Anxiety/Depression that I have been experiencing lately. Mind you I have NEVER had any of these problems in my life until I became ill.
1365508 tn?1277935059 I don't see life is worth living. Everything is upside down for me. I have been fighting with my depression with so many different drugs, but nothing seems working well. Wellbutrin, Alphazolam, Cymbalta, Xanax, Valium, etc...I try all of them and nothing helps. What can I do to get out of depression? It hurts me a lot and I might do something to hurt myself. I am seeking therapist treatment, but I don't think it will help me much.
912352 tn?1242888802 I have depression/anxiety/schitofrinia/bipolar disorder all runs in my family genes. My mom has it, her mom had it, my grandmother's sisters and brothers have had it...or have it. They are all taking medication. I am scared. I had my first anxiety attack when I was 19. Now, at 23, I have been on over 5 medications to help my anxiety/depression symptoms. I've tried counceling for years. I tried exercise...medication. You name it..I've done it (well I haven't tried any natural remidies).
1065486 tn?1255240369 I eat incredibly healthy. Why is this happening to me?? I've kind of heard of depression treatment medication needing to be "switched up" every few years... Is that what I need to do? I've started doubling my dose again, it's kind of working, but when I do that, the meds mess with my head, I know I'm a little off with this high milligram dosage in my body, It's why I went down to 150 in the first place. I just hate this feeling of nothing.
Avatar f tn You are going to get fat regardless because of the weight the baby needs to grow. You will be able to exercise and what not when your healed after 9 months and when ever your baby is asleep. You can still work out now just ask you doctor what you can do. You should never think this baby is going to ruin your life it's a blessing. But if you do think that you should of thought of the options before getting pregnant. In the end this baby will be your joy.
Avatar m tn There is no cure, some poeple have reoccurring depression which means they have more than one episode, some people's depression is worst than other, so everyone is different and it is not healthy to compare yourself to others, what is important is your recovery but yes some poeple spend most there lives depressed, for many different reasons including they don't seek treatment.
