Common Questions and Answers about How long can anxiety and depression last


Avatar f tn all i can say it is normal...for me it was not so much anxiety as it was fatigue, depresion and loss of lasted a few months....exercise helped...often an AD can help..i also used the thomas recipe as well...have u talked with ur dr about sumpin to help with all of this?
Avatar m tn However, I kept getting symptoms which are classic signs of anxiety. My one question is how long can these affect me? Two months later and I still get dizzy spells almost daily, chest heaviness, a cloudiness to were I can't concentrate on anything and digestion problems. Will these eventually go away? I've been to my Primary Care about 4 times in the last 2 months. If I don't have a sinus infection or something then these must be caused by stress? Are these purely psychosematic?
199013 tn?1207069216 I am in the same boat- 23 days out and still having depression and anxiety. Ironically, today I felt the best; there are ebbs and flows, sometimes the depression and anxiety come in waves, then subside. These episodes get shorter and less frequent-- I promise. Since you have a history of depression, this may linger a little longer for you. Have you ever been on Wellbutrin? It is one of the better ADs, treats anxiety as well and doesn't put your clit into a coma like prozac does !
Avatar m tn I was on opaites mostly oxy and morphine everyday for only about 4 months or so and I'm 7 days clean went through all the intial withdrawals. Now I'm left with a very bad depression and anxiety and racing thoughts. I just want to be who I was before I ever did them and I have no desire to do them, but everyday I think about times before I did the drugs and everything that I was passionate about before has been lost. Will this depression go away eventually or will I always feel this way?
Avatar f tn I actually do feel so much better and the reason is this..I was taking Remeron for depression and anxiety and sleeping. Still, I felt so incredibly depressed and anxious so I starting weaning myself off it. Within 3 weeks I started feeling amazingly better. I don't have as much awful anxiety, I am not really depressed any more. I have more energy and things are going well. I am exercising and enjoying school. My husband got a job so things are better. NOT ONCE did my doc.
Avatar n tn I could be everything, but a psychiatrist. But for the anxiety and also for the angst clonazepam can get to be very usefull. And for the mood variations between depression and anxiety there's a mood stabilizer (Untill now, I haven't had any side effects, but that can variate from person to person, of course) that also has a mild effect as an anti-depressant wich name is lamotrigine. But, anyway, you may consult and talk seriously with you terapist/psychiatrist about that.
Avatar f tn I am suffering from depression but I have Long Qt and am obese , diabetic and have svt's my GP has been unable to find any medication that is suitable - do you have any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Do you think this will last long? I haven't been on them very long and I really don't take that much. What can you suggest for the anxiety? It feels like I am very restless and cannot sleep. Putting a cold compress on my head or neck helps some.
Avatar n tn Hello, I have been snorting between 40 - 80mg of oxy contin a day for about the last 8 months or so. Currently I am 9 days sober and am going through the worst depression and anxiety I have ever felt. Nothing seems fun anymore. I cry for no reason and get super anxious when I think about the future and realize that I am so bored with everything. This ***** so much, how long does this last for? Are there others going through this?
Avatar f tn Don't worry, they don't last long, but they can freak you out because nobody wants to feel those things again. Part of it can be some lingering depression and anxiety as your mind resets its own chemicals back to your baseline. That's why aftercare is preached so much on here. If you aren't prepared to deal with the cravings and paws, it can set you up for relapse. And make sure you have cut your sources. You can't take what you can't get. Good job on 5 days...
Avatar m tn 9 days is a long time and I am hoping that it gets better soon. I am doing this and can continue to do this. Hot baths have helpped with the WD ......
Avatar m tn I went to the store and got some vitamins that they say should help but how long will this withdrawl %^$# last. I am on day 4 but I still do not feel good.
Avatar m tn ) keep being positive and trust yourself that you can do it, stephen.... this is a long fight but you can do it !!!! ( aftercare is very important after the detoxing, think about it... NA meetings, therapy and counselors are private.. whatever can work for you, we need addressing our personal problems as being clean is not as hard as staying clean ).- good luck !
Avatar f tn Overall you can expect to feel bad for about 10 days. But others are right, after the super flu, depression, anxiety and cravings kick in so be prepared. Also it takes awhile for energy to return. I felt like I was walking through mud all day long for over a month. But I was w/ding from fentanyl which is a killer to get off of. Stay strong...
Avatar f tn I only have 2 friends and the other one died last year. I am fighting this anxiety without meds and without telling anyone. The only meds that i am using is closing my eyes, feeling my baby move/kick and visioning the laughter and smile of my family. I know God has his reasons for everything so eventho we have no food beside us or we have no comfy matress to lay on i still thank Him. I dont know your beliefs but i believe that God will never leave you and He loves you.
Avatar f tn Taking 10 30mg per day for 2 months, 6-7 30mg for two months,prior to that using 5-10 Norco 10/325 for 18 months. Can anyone estimate how long the major withdrawals will last if I go cold turkey? I am so terrified but have GOT to do this now. I have Clonodine, Clonazepam, Ambien, Neurontin and Lyrica to help me through. I am scared I will die. I've heard anywhere from 5days of hell to a whole month. Can anyone who's been on a similar dose help me with an estimate? grateful to hear from anyone.
Avatar n tn my wife suffers from many health issues, chronic back pain, diabetes, PTSD, anxiety, depression, and has had 1 heart attack, and had 2 stents put in recently. her emotions are all over the chart, she is being treated by a pain management specialist, and a psychologist, yet nothing seems to be getting better. I am a disabled veteran, who has severe PTSD, and i'm at my wits end, as to how to help my wife of 25 years, recover from this roller coaster ride, we're both on.
Avatar f tn Take acouple of deep breathes-its amazing how much that can help calm you down.Deep breath in followed by an I can and will do this,I am stronger than these pills and they will stop running and ruining my life.Just keep doing it, it really does help. I too never had a problem with alcohol but alot people think I did because I never drank and when asked why the standard answer I would give id I just dont so they alot of them just assumed I had a problem at one time.
Avatar n tn My activities will be cut in half without pain pills. I don't know how strong I will be when I have a long pain day and know all I have to do is pick up the phone. It kills me to think that I take 375 500/Lortabs a month. I feel like such a loser that I need that much to get through the day. I worry and worry how my liver can take it. The doctor says my general health is good, my weight in check and I don't drink or smoke. Is that enough to protect me?

Avatar f tn She tends to ease My anxiety and depression. But husband is my rock and helps so much, never makes me feel bad for the way I feel and always helps and comforts me. Hope you ladies can find the same or a way to help cope with this awful feeling.
Avatar f tn 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. Your use has masked you from feeling anything for however long you were doing it and it takes a while before you get back to your normal self. But you will get back. Hang in there. It won't last forever.
Avatar n tn Very irritable. I would like to know how long this will last. His eyes look pathetic and he says he feels like he hasn't slept in days. Any info will be appreciated.

Avatar f tn Hi there; I also suffer with anxiety and depression, so i can totally understand how you feel. I was not prescribed Prozac, I am on Cipramil, but it takes 2 weeks according to my doctor for the drug to start working and can make anxiety temporarily increase when you first start taking it. Try not to think about if it is working or not because that will also increase your anxiety as well.
Avatar f tn I was also very young like your daugher when my first symptoms of Severe Uni-polar Depression and Anxiety manifested, and head pressure (deep inside my head) dizziness and nausia were some of my most profound initial symptoms. I had also been convinced that I was sick or that I was suffering some undiagnosed physical condition. Unfortunatly after months of just about every test known to man, I was found to be physically healthy.
