Common Questions and Answers about Depression treatment hospital


1438412 tn?1315511519 Now what would convince me is a longitudinal study from a respected university teaching hospital that followed standard treatment protocal. But psychiatric funding isn't given as much weight as say cancer so these studies are not being done. We as patients are left to fly blind and hope like heck we don't end up worse off (any treatment not just ECT).
Avatar f tn Highly unlikely, but if you are trying to overdose you need to go immediately to the emergency room. You need to be in a hospital setting until you get stabilized. The fact you're writing on this forum suggests you really don't want to die, so go to the hospital, get stabilized, and then with a psychiatrist figure out a plan to learn what you do want and how you might get there. Good luck and get help now.
Avatar f tn People do get better from depression, with treatment. If you have mania/bipolar disorder it is likely you will need medication for life but it is possible to be stable without depression and manias, if you take the medication. Life with out the hospital unit is defiantly possible as well, depending on how long you were there will change how hard it is to adapt. I hope this answers your question.
Avatar f tn these meds can make a huge difference in peoples lives and for many will help them get through treatment since the tx drugs can cause depression.
Avatar m tn I think this week you should either go to the county mental health clinic, or go to the hospital emergency room, or go see any doctor as soon as you possibly can. What you have is an ordinary mental disorder, I think it's called paranoia, which some people do get that, rather a lot of folks suffer with it. It causes them to think someone is "out to get them.
Avatar n tn I constantly feel like im going to burst into tears and feel like I want something bad to happen to me, so I end up in hospital. I think Iv suffered with depression before and ave resorted to self harm, I now have an obvious scar on my arm. I feel asthough I have no confidence and I feel a burden to my boyfriend as i feel so sad all the time, although he says he will always be here for me and he understands that i may be sad, he just want me to be happy again.
Avatar f tn The conculsion is the key element in the treatment. Without that there is to treatment and no help for depression. I want to let people know that ECT treatments are not like they are depicted on movies. They are very relaxing before and after. The patient is not awake for the procedure. After the procedure was done, often times patients ask if they are next. The nurse will tell them that they have already had their treatment and they can just lay there and relax.

Avatar m tn When I was at the hospital they told me it was for a depressive episode later after I got out but the psychiatrist told me I didn't have enough criteria for depression before I was told that while I was staying there which I don't know why they would tell me conflicting information like that. Anyway, they said it was a depressive episode when I actually didn't feel sad at all but rather anxious and stressed out beyond belief.
Avatar f tn Ever since I was diagnosed with Bipolar I, I have struggled with depression. Mine almost always stays in the depressive cycle. I haven't had mania in awhile, but the depression just lingers on and on. I currently take Lamictal 400 mg, Risperdal 1 mg, daily. He tried me on Abilify and that was a nightmare - made me feel "crazy". Also have tried Geodon - not good on that one either. I miss being happy - even if it was induced by mania.
2105456 tn?1334368647 It drove me over the edge that I was committed to a mental hospital for treatment. When I was told by a doctor who said he could do the surgery.And knew that Had One done over30+years ago..That failed He did test to see if its possible and it was and .He said NO he closed the door and his office gave me a nasty letter stating I would not be a good candidate for surgery since I'm addict to food. These past few month has been Hell I went on diets cannot stay on one no longer that 2-3 weeks..
354706 tn?1279474395 My mum, myself and my sister took turns to bring my father to the hospital Monday to Friday for the radiation treatment at the hospital – a 45 minutes ride away from home. Amazingly, he did have a remission. My father, were again paranoid and wanted to take at least 6 cans of extra-vitamin milk to supplement his diet.
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 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.
2011699 tn?1328936953 You should do both before ever starting hepatitis C treatment. A serious potential side effect of Hep C treatment is depression. People who suffer depression while taking treatment, people who have thoughts of suicide or self-harm or people with a family history of depression should be encouraged to access support and counseling. Anyone with a history of depression should be monitored throughout their treatment to make sure that treatment is not causing a major depressive episode.
Avatar f tn i have a question about a med. Its lexapro. i was wondering if u can get pregnant while u are on it. if so what do i have to do.
Avatar m tn With a teenage girl at high risk suicidal thoughts, it is difficult to find a treatment center that can keep her safe. My question I have is; If there was a very "BEST" treatment center in the world where would it be? -We need a place where she can be safe from herself -We need a place where she can be safe from running away -We need a place where she can recieve DBT therapy If this place exists where would it be, the "BEST" place possible?

Avatar f tn it is good procedure for someone with past or current issues of clinical depression to have a pysch evaluation prior to starting treatment for HCV.,as the meds can have an effect of depression on some(especially those with history of depression). However .it would seem odd that your doctor would not recommend stating treatment .and trying to control any depression issues with the help of an anti -depressant,especially in light of the fact your liver damage is getting well advanced.
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 My Cardiologist and 3 Drs at the hospital did extensive research and were unable to find any suitable medication for me, to assist in the treatment of my depression - I have since had 3 seperate admissions to the psych unit at the hospital - apparently I have Borderline Personality Disorder (which I was diagnosed with 15 years ago and I have been told it is like alcoholism - it is always there) alongside the depression and am suffering through grief at the passing away recently of my mother.
Avatar m tn I have been suffering from Depression for many years, even though I am only 15. When I was born, I was diagnosed with Autism but my doctors have never been sure if it is actually Brain Damage. At birth, I was revived and delivered by a nurse. I also had a jaundice and not infant jaundice but full-blown jaundice. When I was about seven, I was on anti-psychotic medicine and I was taken off because of bladder maintenance problems.
12268405 tn?1427856961 On April 2nd I made the decision to admit myself to a psychiatric hospital due to a psychotic episode. The thing that I'm having the hardest time comprehending is if I induced the episode or not. I convinced myself that I was covered in fleas, I heard voices saying my name and calling me worthless in the past, & I experienced paranoia. I don't know what to think right now. I wish I could know if I made the symptoms worse or not... I'm not sure if I convinced myself to exacerbate them or not.
Avatar f tn I truly think it is depression and know that depression really hurts. I should be relieved all tests and surgery are over. And I know I am very blessed not to have any serious diagnosis and no cancer. So now I don't know what to do or where to turn especially if my doctor ignores me. I explained to her I feel run down and tired and she just shrugged her shoulders. Please if anyone gets these feelings come over them I would appreciate any advice. How do I come out of this slump I'm in.
Avatar f tn I stopped taking my meds in May, the withdrawals were pretty bad, but the anxiety was even worse. I was in the hospital almost every week thinking that I was going to die or have a heartattack. So in the beginning of senior year I went back on lexapro and zenox just to get through school. In may I stopped taking all of my meds. I don't have panic attacks anymore, but my anxiety and depression are pretty bad.
Avatar f tn are some people just not able to be helped?i feel that way with my depression problems.i been to many mental health doctors been on many different anti depression and anxiety meds which hasnt helped.been having suicide thoughts and was in the mental hospital recently for a suicide attempt just got released about a month a cutter and i havent cut myself at least in 4 months and i feel the urge to but i been fighting it.
Avatar f tn Clinical depression treatment centers should carry out a detail study regarding the patient’s personality, family dynamics, and background before suggesting medicinal treatment.
