Common Questions and Answers about Depression treatment texas


Avatar f tn Hi, I am a grandmother from Texas who has been fighting ovarian cancer since 1994. I continued working until 1999 and loved my job. My cancer returned in 1998, and since I have low grade ovarian cancer,I was able to keep it at bay with Tamoxifen or Arimidex. I began to build up fluid a few months ago and have had a parencentesis twice. The second time the fluid became compartmentalized and the parencentesis didn't work. My oncologist said it was time for chemo.

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.
2190999 tn?1504992491 I have read that one difference between general depression and bipolar depression is a persons energy level. It's a matter of feeling unable to perform even the simplest daily tasks because of overwhelming fatigue, instead of the general depressive sadness, hopelessness, ambivalence, etc. Does that make sense to anyone? Another difference is the depth of depression. The suicide rate for bipolar disorder is considerably higher than general depression rates.
Avatar f tn I went back to the doctor and he gave me steroids but still there. I had depression for 3 weeks, and thanks God it went away. I really want to now is this is going to go away or if somebody had the same experience than me. Nobody know why and nobody know how to cure this "rare de condition" I feel better now that I can express this with you guys. I also found this video about GM on youtube:
Avatar f tn Did anyone hear about the guy that plowed a small plane into the Echelon bldg in Austin Texas? From what I get so far, the guy was out of work and being audited by the IRS. They found an an anti-irs webpage. He burned his house down, got in a plane and rammed it into the building. I understand there is an irs office in the building and an fbi office somewhere nearby. He evidentally went for help for depression and regretted that decision, evidentally it made things worse for him.
Avatar f tn I don't have severe headache or milk production or irregular menstrual cycle or vision problem,. However, my biggest issue is that I am also suffering from depression and anxiety disorder and the trigger of my anxiety episode is extreme health concern. I am taking celexa 10mg and atarax. My question is how serious is my pituitary issue. Is it treatable? and does pituitary disorder has anything to do with my mental health?
Avatar f tn Graham Emslie of the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center, concludes that treatment of major depression is as effective for children as it is for adults. (American Medical Association, Archives of General Psychiatry, November 15, 1997) Suicide is the third leading cause of death for 15 to 24 year olds (approximately 5,000 young people) and the sixth leading cause of death for five to 15 year olds. The rate of suicide for five to 24 year olds has nearly tripled since 1960.

419309 tn?1326506891 This is why antidepressant are often prescribed to individual with a history of depression before starting hep C treatment with interferon because it is known that one side effect of interferon use can be depression. Treatment can be difficult enough without having depression on top of everything else that treatment can burden a patient with.

142354 tn?1228250348 Congratulations! I'm sure you had your reasons, but for others either SVR or in treatment -- there's generally no reason to risk a biopsy post SVR and there are risks.
902707 tn?1242153206 You should make your specialist aware of any existing medical problems such as depression prior to treatment. There are antidepressants available to help. Here are a couple of very good websites which will give you much information on hepc and treatment. Here is a very informative video too. BTW, if it were me I would treat.
Avatar n tn I know that many of us have experienced anxiety and depression on treatment. I'm going to talk to my doc about my increasing anxiety today and see what my options are. I'm already on Celexa, which seemed to work for awhile, but now life seems to be getting hard to manage again. What are others on treatment doing to help with anxiety?

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 n tn but recently he told me that he hears all kinds of complaints from patients after treatment with lingering SE.. On treatment, I always complained of pain in my liver... It HURT. My Dr. knodded his head. We are all different on this journey and yet we have a lot in common. The forum is new to me and I am so grateful to everyone for sharing the good and the bad. I have learned a lot and mostly, I do not feel alone. My best to you.
Avatar n tn Since then we've tried going back on and weening off, but the depression and severe pain continues. I'm not sure it is paxil withdrawal symptoms, but nothing else works. I am at wits end and fearful she no longer wishes to continue life with this pain. Is there anything we can do???
Avatar n tn Ok folks, just what you need, another newbie! Diagnosed 1 year ago-HCV-1a. I'm 54 yrs. old male. Liver & labs are normal. Liver biopsy-stage 1. Doc says no rush. no insurance. I've contacted Roche, & they will supply me with Pegasys + Copegus- free! I'm a working musican who's going back to school this fall (music doesn't pay well). I've chosen to start tx 10/1/06-want to enjoy my summer! Been educating myself about Hep C, and now I'm ready-I think.

Avatar m tn ""So be prepare to see your eAntigen stay positive for some time since there is still too much cccDNA taking hold in your liver cells producing too much eAntigen despite UND DNA. What's the plan after you go UND? What is the goal of the study?"" The goal of the study is to test the efficiency of the combo treatment vs single treatment. Prevent mutations of the HepB virus. My doctor hopes that the virus does not mutate. I'll be on it regardless for the next 1.5 years.
1139187 tn?1355710247 As we all know, hypothyroidism causes depression. The xanex was making me have a lot of depression, though it was helping the anxiety. I dont mind trying what doctors tell me to do. However, all the endos here (and even at the may) start their sentences off with "you might try_______" OR "maybe you should try______". Not one of them yet has said "look, heres the deal.
Avatar n tn You know I believe it's mostly the depression that has discluded them from treatment - I know if I had had any history of depression my doctor would NOT have treated me. With the 1/3 number of people being GREATLY affected by the Interferon (ie: suicidal etc.) he felt if I had a history it would take me off the treatment list COMPLETELY. Maybe that is why and nothing else?
20063166 tn?1489404667 Passed more than 7 months after the successful treatment of my son from hepatitis C, but there were serious side effects that were not before treatment: 1 problems with the eyes-before the eyes of the mesh; If you look at a certain point it begins to blur; Wave-like movement of objects, if tired; Bright light is a problem, often there is burning in the eyes. 2 there is a fog in his head, which prevents him from thinking clearly and very much influences his memory.
Avatar n tn It was describing some of the mental symptoms... depression- thought about hurting yourself and thoughts about hurting others. And one of the other papers described it as feeling suicidal and thoughts about homicide!!!!!!!!OMG Thanks for responding I will check back tomorrow.
Avatar m tn Previous research has shown that as much as 20% to 30% of hepatitis C patients receiving antiviral treatment experience major depression, which can result in dose reductions and a shorter duration of treatment. The need to identify patients at risk is therefore exceptionally pressing, according to the study's lead author, Muhamad Aly Rifai, MD, from the Lehigh Valley Health Network in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Avatar n tn Hi Geri,,,,Welcome aboard! LOL I have had some nausea during treatment but only got sick the first month and actually it was more due to a headache then anything. Alot of people use ginger or ginger cookies and it seems to help settle the stomach. Hopefully,,,you won't have any problems and light sides! Good Luck and let us know how you are doing!
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 n tn I would really like to compare what we were told to do prior to starting treatment and while on treatment by Doctor. Prior to starting, I had to get Hepatitis A & B vaccine and later the boosters, get examined by eye doctor, and have a general physical, and be drug tested. I have been told to take fish or flax seed oil 3 x day with food, 400 units of vitamin E, multi vitamin, and cultured yogart daily. Also at least 64 oz of water.
