Common Questions and Answers about Depression treatment michigan


Avatar f tn All you can do is to mention they are doing a trial treatment at Henry Ford Hospital ( the one on Grand Blvd ) and the treatment is free--no cost to him at all. If he wants to enter, he must do it quickly for they will be starting in a few weeks. He can call the number I gave in the first post. Has he had a biopsy? Do you know what stage and grade he is? Some people choose to put off treatment depending upon the biopsy results.
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.
Avatar n tn I do however need to know, approximately, how much the RAI I-131 treatment would cost me (cash, remember no ins) so I can start saving for this procedure. I can't get this info from my EX-doctor because he's an ***, can you believe I can't get this info over the phone? He wants another $75 office visit to discuss the cost of this treatment. This has cost me more time and money than I can afford to **** away. I am tired of being jerked around and now ready to take action.
Avatar n tn I'm pro treatment - but I believe in being informed. Find out what can happen on the treatment - talk to everyone about the side effects - ask what can happen - how long you'll have to be on it --- what can be done to treat the side effects... and if you can handle them. Lethargy and Depression are serious problems... I'm 4 months post tx (SVR now) but I still have sides... Was it worth it to get SVR? YES!!! Will I say that in a year if the sides continue? I don't know.

748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.

Avatar m tn lead investigator Kimberly Brown, MD, head of the Division of Gastroenterology at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, and colleagues report in their meeting abstract.

Avatar f tn Lyme messes with your whole hormonal system, which can easily feel like depression and despair. After treatment, when you are well again, the positive feelings will come back. I used to go around muttering, "It's not me ... it's the bugz", over and over and over, to remind myself that it wasn't my fault somehow. And guess what -- I was right! It wasn't me: it was my illness. Getting rid of Lyme and feeling totally fine again is doable, and definitely worth doing. YOU GO!!!
Avatar m tn They exacerbate her condition rather than control it. We recently tried hydroxychloroquine with adverse side affects. We have tried L-thyroxin treatment as well but the hives did not go into remission. These are delayed pressure hives and the outbreaks resolve and return with regularity depending on clothing, sitting on hard benches, wearing closely confining clothes and shoes, etc. We are now looking at a very expensive therapy, Xolair (Omalizumab) injections at $750 a pop.

Avatar f tn Heres the article WEDNESDAY, Jan. 18 (HealthDay News) -- A new cocktail of two investigational drugs appears to have successfully cleared the hepatitis C virus in people who don't respond to standard treatment. What's more, the approach seems to work without the need for injections with interferon alpha, an onerous medication that causes serious side effects in many patients. Scientists from seven U.S. medical centers and drug maker Bristol-Myers Squibb published the small study in the Jan.

Avatar m tn I am not a psychiatrist, but I have dealt with major clinical depression (twice) myself. If you get treatment for the depression, and the treatment works, I think you will find that everything else will seem so much easier and doable. Depression can interfere with everything in one's life and it can make a person do nothing about anything. Even minor tasks or activities seem like monumental obstacles.
Avatar m tn To achive that sober time, I had to leave my native state (Michigan) go to Hazelden treatment center in Minnesota, stay in treatment for 7 months, then move to a sober house in St. Paul. I attended AA and NA meetings almost daily, worked at a company where just about every one else was in recovery, and spent my free time only with other people in the program. The problem was, I was never comfortable.

1684282 tn?1505701570 There are better (in my opinion) treatments for chronic pain that are much safer than opioids,such as physical therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, anti-depression medications, and treatment of underlying psychiatric illnesses such as depression and anxiety, dietary and life-style changes, etc. High dose long term opiates have not been shown in multiple studies to improve long term pain scores of chronic pain patients - and that is the most important fact of the whole article.
Avatar n tn I havent begun treatment yet (treated back in 1996-1998) and may have to do so again in the near future. DR. prescribed same anti-dpressant for me to try out. It made me jittery and couldnt sleep. I asked for Wellbutrin which I know I tolerate better. First time around I did not have anti-depressants, but probably should have. I did find myself in a deep funk on many occassions and the meds would have helped. Nobody discussed it with me and I didnt ask for anything.

Avatar n tn I live in the United States - Michigan. I have an appt with a new Rhuematologist from the University of Michigan. Although I don't know if they are a specialist in Antiphoslipid Syndrome. I have only one child and had two miscarriages after her. You would not even believe how most Drs just tell me I have anxiety and want to put me on antidepressents/anxiety medicine. I have refused because although I am anxious, I do not feel it is from anxiety alone.
