Avatar f tn You shouldn't take either 5-HTP or St. John's Wort along with an anti-depressant, because it's theoretically possible to get an overdose of serotonin. I'm also curious about the term "mood swings." Anxiety and depression are what 5-HTP can help with, and St. John's Wort is for depression. Melatonin is a sleep aid. But mood swings are different from anxiety and depression.

Avatar f tn You will go through this for some time. Real time. Months and maybe a year or more. The subs are known to cause depression and yes your brain is healing. While you are on any opiates your body stops making seratonin. It's your natural happy drug. It takes a long time for your brain to realize that it has to start making it's own natural pain killer again. You may experience anxiety and depression and even have some aches and pains that you never had before.
Avatar m tn First of all try the links page on the bipolar forum such as the website "Depression Central". Those are better than books because they update themselves because as regards understanding of neurotransmitters science keeps updating itself.

I'm pretty sure I am but am embarrassed about going to my university doctor's as the issue is complex and quite embarrassing. I'm considering making a fake source of depression up in order to be prescribed anti-depressants?
Avatar m tn Not really. There is no method. There are a number of treatments for depression and anxiety, varying according to the symptoms and the severity of the illness. Many people may be helped by a family doctor but, most need more specialized treatment. Have been to a doctor to talk about whats going on and how you are feeling and maybe why? Some people have experienced good results with herbal medications, dietary ajustments, or a controled exercise program.

1533382 tn?1357962152 We have 2 kids together. Until about 6 months ago everything was very terrible. I had such high levels of anxiety and depression that I was not a good person. I took the step and talked to my doctor and she put me on meds to help with it all and it took a little while for it to kick in. Through this he's shown patience and kindness and all I've done is tear him apart.
