Avatar m tn Also, if you are drinking or doing any kind of illegal drugs, go ahead and stop doing that for a while. Instead, get into eating good food. Go out to eat a few times a week. Buy some orange juice and cereal and milk and have that every morning. Eat a hamburger with lettuce and tomato for lunch. Also, get you some eye drops for your eye, so it won't bother you so much. And drink a few extra glasses of water each day, so your voice will do a little better.
Avatar m tn To the poster, for treating clinical depression, it is widely known that the best course of treatment involves a combination approach of medication and talk therapy. You sound to have a very complex medical history though. ADHD, mood disorders and depression requires a good psychiatrist to manage. Good communication with your doctor is essential as you try different medications to improve the situation. Add each one slowly monitoring if you improve in any way.

Avatar f tn I have a family history of bipolar disorder - and I've never known it to become 'full depression', and regardless of any hyper/down cycles in my past, I think this can be pretty much ruled out.
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.
354706 tn?1279474395 My mum’s OVCA treatment went so smooth that it is almost unbelievable. Just consider this – stage 4, abdominal filled with cancer spreading to liver, colon, diaphragm and spleen. As there is no hope of optimal debulking, the doctor tried chemo first. After 2 chemo, CA125 dropped from 165 to 15. CT scan revealed that most tumors were gone/shrunk. During operation after 3 chemo, very little signs of chemo and an optimal debulking.
3297715 tn?1349023948 I start my treatment next week. Have to take 2 capsules of Ribasphere 200 mg daily and 1 shot of Pegasys Pro Click 180 mcg/ 0.5 mil weekly for 24 weeks . Have to have blood work done monthly to monitor my platelet count. Last blood work they were at 33,000 but they have been up and down since 07 when I was diagnosed with ITP. I would like some advice on what to expect with side effects.
Avatar n tn Take your Riba pills around Breakfast/ dinner time and with food. This keeps the med level up longer. If you take it with food then ALWAYS take it with food to keep the levels the same. If you miss a does, do NOT try to make it up if you are close to your next dose. Just skip it and go on. Keep a clear path to the bathroom. You will need that for those midnight trips. Hide all cameras right away until you start feeling better to prevent any accidental murders.
154927 tn?1205246451 Also before treatment had never had depression, at least not at all severe. Im sure i had a delayed severe depression brought on by the Meds and made worse by the Doctors trying to treat the depression with multiple Anti`s. ( i think the Paxel was the one that caused the slide or fall into Mania) Im still afraid to retreat even though i long to rid myself of the Virus. Hopeing for something less toxic to our mental health then the interferon.
Avatar f tn ) but soon those symptoms will die down, and you will think about the positives of having a baby, not just the negatives, you will develop new goals in life or put the ones you have on a new timeline and everything will seem much brighter. if you remain active and eat right, your baby will probably not ruin your body, just when you are eating for two remember one of them is smaller than your hand and really only needs a bagel more food a day!
Avatar f tn My son will do something minor (spill food on his shirt) and I'll feel myself getting so mad that I want to yell and scream at him. Luckily, my husband usually tells me to calm down but it's starting to wear on him, too. How much can he take? I can't stand myself. How can I expect my family to put up w/me? I've been to the doctor. I'm on 150 Effexor xr and 300 mg Wellbutrin (just started 2 weeks ago). I haven't seen any change since starting the wellbutrin.
Avatar f tn I'm 22 years old & 4 years ago i was diagnosed with PCOS I started to take the provera pills later a diane 35 course that resulted regulation of my period but 2 years later my period is back to be irregulated went to the Dr.
Avatar n tn Dear Sleepy From the information that was provided, it seems that you may be suffering from depression.. In depression with atypical features, the depressed mood is associated with features such as increase in appetite/ significant weight gain, hypersomnia (increased sleep), interpersonal sensitivity and heavy feeling in arms, legs etc. Medications such as MAOI's (monoamine oxidase inhibitors) and SSRI's (serotonin specific reuptake inhibitors) are found to be beneficial in the treatment.
Avatar f tn It is not often that I get to meet someone like you that also has very severe treatment resistant or Refractory depression. (we only make up about 5% of depressed people) Lets keep in touch and share some ideas. I will tell you more about my Psychiatrist later. (I have to keep my post short now because my damn internet modem keeps going out) I have a new one on the way.
Avatar m tn Notice your function went down after you went off your meds. My doctor says the goal of depression treatment is complete remission. e.g. I still take meds but no longer consider depression and significant influence in my day to day life. I don't "wait for the other shoe to drop." I'm almost there. Please don't give up. You are worth it.
Avatar n tn - Current work situation, can you afford to take time off work if things do not go as smooth as you want - Insurance, how much will your insurance cover the treatment. - Your family situation, your treatment will affect people around you. I do not know what kind of medical advances we will have in 5-10 years, but I heard that 3a genotype is one of the easiest to cure, so I would do it while you are young.
Avatar f tn i have been diagnosed with Hypothyriodism at the again of 2 and had a thryoidectomy at the age of 10, but during my 20's i notice that i been using food to cope with my depression and stress. How can i deal with this issue?
Avatar f tn I think I may be suffering from depression, which is causing other problems in my daily life. I have low self esteem, have trouble sustaining relationships, and am very lonely. In times of sadness or anger I try to comfort myself with food, which leads to binge eating. Often I have suicidal thoughts, but I'm always too afraid to actually go through with it. Can anything help me with these issues?
Avatar f tn I'm currently seeing a counsellor concerning depression/anxiety, and am still wavering on the idea about telling her of my binging/laxatives/over exercising. Is a counsellor qualified anough to give me the support I want? She is unable to give out medication, and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. Would you advise seeing someone different (a psychologist) and requesting medication, or sticking with therapy? What has/hasn't worked for you?
Avatar f tn I do have some depression (but I had endogenous depression anyway, started taking some meds for that, anxiety, but not a lot) and I did have one stomach incident because I hadn't eaten enough food prior (I found if I do it's not a problem) So Happy For You All!
302287 tn?1201299268 I will be starting treatment within the next couple of weeks, or sooner. Can anyone please tell me if there is anything I will need to or buy for myself? I have heard about the lotions and drinking lots of water, but is there anything else? Is there a good time of the day to take the meds and what are some of the first few side effects that I will experience? I am very scared about all of this.
Avatar n tn I want him to communicate with you guys out there. But maybe you can help him thru me. Any suggestions for food when feeling nauseated. He hasn't had much to eat today, and he needs to eat with him ribavirin tonight. What helped? His eyes hurt him sometimes, and he has mouth sores, any suggestions? Thanks so much for any help. He is not doing as well as he had hoped and he says he sick of being sick all the time and he just started.
Avatar m tn I didn't use acupuncture, but did use a couple of different Chinese herbal combinations while on treatment. I don't promote the idea because I don't know whether the herbs helped or hindered the tx. It was my choice and I took the risk knowing that if I messed something up, I had no one but myself to blame. The guy who formulates the stuff has been doing this for decades, doesn't make outrageous promises, and his other formulas do what they're supposed to and have never affected my ALT/AST.
