Avatar m tn The article lists a lot of good ideas on ways to treat depression naturally, yes. There's nothing wrong with wanting to take a more natural approach, just rememeber that if you're still not noticing improvements after some time, then it's important to see a professional. Sometimes, the natural approach just doesn't cut it for some people. Good luck, hope you feel better!
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.
1174869 tn?1441315268 Is there any other way I can get help as its becoming unbearable and getting to the point where I cannot cope anymore, I have attempted suicide once before and just need this to be regulated before I end up doing it again? Are there any other forms of treatment? I can't go anywhere as I get really dizzy and lightheaded and go really red and start hearing things and think that everyone is looking at me in a perception of disguist.
Avatar m tn Wellbutrin XL - extended-release pills taken once daily for the treatment of major depressive disorder and seasonal affective disorder. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Cognitive-Behavioral psychotherapy is particularly useful for the treatment of depression. You might reuqest a referral for this therapy. Talk to your doctor about your concerns and treatment plans.
Avatar f tn Personally, I'd rather be CC genotyped, have the greater risk of depression, but also have a much greater chance of clearing the virus. Most treatment related depression can be dealt with with meds. So I've heard.
Avatar n tn Can a person suffering from depression do something that is totally out of character for them? Can a person steal because they are suffering from depression?
Avatar n tn How can you determine if an illness is causing depression or depression is causing an illness? 2. Is depression a mental illness? ================================================================================= Rony stephen.
Avatar f tn I've had hep C for twenty years, and my doctors always told me it was not necessary to treat, however, I am in my third week of treatment now and wish I had treated earlier. I had prepared myself for treatment in such a way that you would have thought I was preparing to go to the guillotine! It has not been bad at all, so far. Side affects from treatment do vary from person to person. There is a great amount of support for you -- this forum is one, and an excellant one at that.
Avatar m tn But if you're able to function and have a lot of motivation, the treatment will consist of a combination of plant medicine, amino acids, minerals, therapy, exercise, meditation, lifestyle changes, etc. It will take work on your part, so you have to have the motivation to do that. Good luck.
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.
602261 tn?1252586758 My problem is that I'm supposed to maybe start treatment after the 11th of Oct and I know a lot of depression meds take 4 to 6 weeks to start working. Once again any advice and or perspective on this would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn If you could answer those few questions, we'll be able to give you some recommendations, as there is a difference between situational depression (feelings of sadness due to life events or losses) and clinical diagnosed depression. Hope to hear from you soon!
Avatar f tn A healthy diet certainly can make your body run smoother but if you do suffer from the dual diagnosis of depression/anxiety first you must get together a treatment plan that in many cases will include a well balanced diet. You do ask about staying motivated and I have found that depression drowns motivation in most cases.
Avatar f tn Many ppl who suffer from depression have complaints of feeling physically unwell as well. It can vary from anxiety to restlessness, feeling suffocated to pain. Depression affects everyone differently BUT never gets better without treatment. Most depression meds don't address the physical problems so if you are suffering physically make sure you mention it to your dr so that they can be sure to cover all the symptoms.
Avatar n tn I finished 3 months of treatment (Pegasys&Rib)1 year ago. I had to stop treatment because of depression. I still battle with depression almost on a daily basis. I never had trouble with depression before. I think the meds somehow changed my body. I deal with the depression by saying to myself everything is fine, be happy. I'm gettin sick of bucking myself up. I don't tell my wife about this problem because it gets old quick. Is there anyone out there who feels like this!
Avatar f tn That is one of many symptoms, but alone is not an indicator or disagnosis of major depression.
Avatar n tn That new research doesn't surprise me at all..... Depression was HORRID for me last round... I just wish I had of known "WHAT" exactly depression was when I had it... & how SERIOUS it can be... Although I had a lot of personal baggage at that time (which has since been resolved) it most definitely affected me negatively last round...
Avatar n tn I just went off perc 10/325 6 a day for 1 year for pain caused by radation treatment after colon cancer. I have found that motrin can do just fine. My problem is I am feeling depressed and sad as a result, no motavation. Been 6 days when will I feel "happy" again? Do you know inthing that can help? I have been in prayer, Thank you.
Avatar n tn it may be important to consider a psychotherapist in conjunction with the meds to hopefully get to the emotional root causes of her depression.
Avatar f tn Yes ma'am. I actually suffer from depression, medicated & weekly therapy sessions. But stopped all treatment at the beginning of the year, then found out I was expecting 2months later. Many days I am down in the dumps & I really worry about postpartum depression because I plan to breastfeed & am terrified about not being able to because I would have to go back on meds. I would recommend staying busy, surround yourself with friends and family, and make sure you have a support team.
Avatar f tn The last psychiatrist and Hep C Dr. that I was seeing knew of my depression and both decided I was not a candidate for treatment. However there is hope. My new Hep C Dr. is now sending me to a new psychiatrist at the same hospital and told me this Dr. would cure me of my depression, he's supposed to be very good at what he does. Then my Hep C Dr.s plans are to treat me on interferon when I am truly happy and they have high hopes.
Avatar f tn Hello everyone, this is a very hard question for me to ask anyone but I am desperate! Does anyone know if ECT or magnetic treatment really helps a person with severe depression? I have taken every type of anti depressant out there and either they do not help my depression or I cannot tolerate the side effects. Right now I am not taking anything except for something for my anxiety and I need something that will help my depression. I am desperate to find something that will help my depression.
Avatar n tn When I was first diagnosed with Hep C four years ago, I went into a depression. Four months into the treatment, the depression got real bad and I became hopeless. I thought I would always feel the way I was feeling. About two months into the tx, I noticed a pattern where I felt like I was coming out of a fog (like when you clear a bad fever) a couple of days after the injection.
Avatar f tn This will not just go away on it's own. I first got treatment by calling a suicide hotline. Most of the people answering these phones are former sufferers themselves. They have contacts and can get you help even with no insurance. This is what they do, let them do it. Make that call.
Avatar f tn Barb - if you are depressed - or someone else is -- most certainly depression is one of the side effects of HCV... But it could be because of the disease --- or because of the mental status one finds themselves in when they learn they have a disease. I found my learning about HCV followed a kind of "grief" like stage set up. I went through disbelief, anger, hostility, depression, acceptance and then military precision on destruction of the disease.

1688492 tn?1346367970 Depression can be a serious illness. I hope you will seek treatment for it. I hope u feel better soon.
1673455 tn?1305215720 Medicine and therapy combined is the absolute best treatment for anxiety/depression. Also, think of it like this...if you go to a psychologist or therapist or whatever...their job is to talk to people in difficult situations and they have heard EVERYTHING. so Im sure they have heard worse, or at least something similar to what you have gone through. Do yourself a favor and dont lie, and get help. Good luck!
1664160 tn?1304533100 Like any other medical condition, you can go without treatment and hope for the best. Many times depression will 'recede' or get better on it's own but it's a not necessary to suffer with this condition when there is good treatment available. If it does recede it will frequently return again. An individual's family physician can frequently treat depression, but going to a psychiatrist is the best method. Suffering with this without help is needless and unnecessary.
