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 n tn i have been in treatment for several years for severe depression. i think i have tried almost every drug and combination. i can get some shortterm releif but nothing works for very long. i am currently taking parnate, lithobid, cytomel,amitriiptylene, clozaril. the clozaril was added recently. when i began hurting myself. i have also had ect therapy. my question is, why after so long would i begin to hurt myself. i should add that i have thoughts of suicide.
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.
1986676 tn?1329866071 How can I be sure my new insurance will cover treatment. If it does not cover Hep C treatment what are my options? Generally, speaking most of my colleagues who have retired have found their coverage to be adequate, but with Hep C expensives I need to know for sure. My insurance coverage has been changing constantly over the years since I treated. As my workplace is a hostile environment and I also have two sick parents I would like to leave sooner than later.
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 n tn We know so little about each other and yet we share so much of ourselves here. I was just interested, if anyone is will to share, about what brought you to treatment. How long did you know you had hep c before deciding to treat. How did you make the decission, was it a hard one to make. Your biggest fears before hand, durning and after (if you have gotten that far). I'll start I am 48 known I have hep c for over 20 years. I ignored it for a long time because I had no effects from it.
1391695 tn?1298143389 OK, thanks, hopefully my insurance will cover, if not, this is good info. Do you think I can call my insurance and ask? If so, what is the exact technical shot I am asking about?
Avatar n tn my doc told me the ribavarian is extreemly important to take on time as well as the interferon. esp. at the beginning of treatment. don't let thier incompetence mess up your treatment. you did the best you could under the situation. shame on your nurse for not calling you back. she certainly had no right yelling at you. you after all, called and got a doctors advise, what more could you have done.
Avatar f tn I am 26, I have had lyme since '04 and i am currently doing my second picc line of rocephin. 4 weeks in, 2 to go, as far as insurance is concerned. No improvement yet. I am scared because this depression/anxiety thing is getting out of control. It is so bad sometimes it physically hurts. I have taken anti-depressants in the past, I don't like them. The side effects make them not worth it. I've tried Xanax for the anxiety but it's too strong and I am sensitive to most medications.
Avatar n tn Laura, I was denied extending treatment meds by my insurance company (I am going to 72 weeks) and I did what Kalio has advised and called Committment to Care. They were prompt, easy and FREE and they send the meds right in the mail to me. The insurance company does pay for my Epogen (so far) but even if they start refusing that one - most of the companies now DO have programs to help us out.
Avatar f tn The studies show that pharmacological treatment along with talk therapy is most effective for MS depression. Realistically that might not be an option for all of us - talk therapy is costly and not necessarily covered by our insurance. My insurance, although a very good policy, has a $40 copay, so each time I would walk through the door I have to pay that amount. Talk therapy is not a short term deal - it is an ongoing lengthy process.
4592241 tn?1359816738 She is terrified of my depression. I have been hospitalized for depression several times. I just want to be drug free. I dont have the money for counseling at this time but have had counseling before. It really just made me even more aware of how messed up my emotions are and wanting to just be normal. My father committed suicide when I was very young ( thats where the PTSD was from) seems like the doctors just keep giving me pills. I know there is no real cure for depression or addiction.
Avatar m tn Did I mention that my HIV medication would cost over $4000 a month without insurance? I swallow in pills a month almost the equivalent to what I'm making. Good thing I have insurance, but still! So, I guess that 20 years is probably going to be fairly unpleasant. Not to mention lonely and sad. So again, you have this milk in the fridge that you will not consume and you know you wont like. It's going to expire in a week. Wouldn't you just pour it out?
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.
1540869 tn?1351217613 I've had it for two years now a little over and it only happens when I get really stressed out which leads to anxiety which leads to depression then more racing obsessive thoughts. I mean I can have the same thought for sometimes hours sometimes days, its the worst feeling in the world because they are not pleasant thoughts and they make me feel guilty,crazy,sad,and suicidal. PLEASE help and opinions. I'm going to see my therapist thursday to see if I can get on anafranil.
Avatar m tn is this true? Also, can the psyche hospital keep her without her permission? she has very good insurance thru her father's job. Is there a risk that may keep her against her will, if their is papers sign. Also, is she required to go for the "few days" evaluation that she was told about, and if so can she leave after the evaluation on her own free will. and does her father have the right to confine her, if he feels she needs in patient treatment, even if she doesnt want to stay.
Avatar n tn This is private insurance that is paid half by the company and the rest myself. It is to cover me if I cannot perform the duties and responsibilities of my current position. I am a computer field service engineer. I travel mostly in the US. There is little or no notice for these trips. They usually are about 3 days and additional travel can get added. Time on site is almost always long hours. It is very high stress environment. Half a million or more rides on the equipment sticking.
1458891 tn?1285647838 I do not know if his psychiatrist feels that our son's condition has worsened, but I can tell you that without treatment, our son has become a dangerous stranger to us.
Avatar n tn Definitely get treatment for your depression. I too have treatment resistant depression, and it took a new psychopharmacologist to finally help me find the right combination of medications for me. I had really given up hope of meds ever working and was even considering ECT (shock therapy). now, over the last month I finally have a combo that WORKS.
Avatar f tn switch to acyclovir. even without insurance you can treat ob's for $4 /month in the US at walmart/target. suppressive therapy is under $20.
1593410 tn?1358961307 I am 3 1/2 years out from treatment for ER/PR + small early cancer. I am so grateful for the help I have received, I am still here and no sign of a return. However, treatment has left me feeling so tired, unresponsive to joy or hope, the finances are very stressful and I should get work, but I also worry stress could bring on a relapse and I can barely sleep about half of the time. I just got a sleep study but I do not believe they concern themselves with insomnia, only apnea.
10624661 tn?1414904229 I do know that my depression has gotten worse due to the fact that I am feeling no better and the Tysabri is approximately $10,000 per treatment. Thankfully we have good insurance and the drug company offers financial assistance since I can no longer work. I just wish the government was more understanding and give back what I have paid in all the years I was able to work without giving me the run around and putting us through unnecessary stress.
Avatar n tn how long does postpartum depression last? or am I bipolar? Am I treatment-resistant? BTW, I have yet to find any books/resources on being a "depressed parent." I have seen them for ADD parents, etc. If you know any, please let me know.
537639 tn?1232057169 Interferon alpha is given by injection just under the skin and has a number of side effects, including flu-like symptoms, headaches, fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, depression, and thinning of hair. Treatment with interferon alpha may also interfere with the production of white blood cells and platelets. Ribavirin is a capsule taken twice daily, and the major side effect is severe anemia (low red blood cells). Ribavirin also causes birth defects.
Avatar f tn no idea how long I had had it for but was diagnosed after a severe cholestatic response to oral contraceptives. I have been putting off treatment for years waiting for a treatment combo that would have a reasonable response rate as well as because of worries about resistance mutations (I have a degree in molecular biology and sometimes that kind of knowledge is a bad thing :P).
Avatar f tn If you have no symptoms and little or no liver damage from HCV before treatment it is natural to be upset about SX. Those feelings are magnifiied by chemically induced depression and off we go through the roof. If you start with a clear diagnosis of serious liver disease, and you are fully informed about SX both temporary and permanent, then you have chosen a better path despite some pain. You can be at peace with the decision.
