Avatar f tn Hi I have posted a question in the heart rhythm forum but I am hoping that maybe someone will be able to help me here. I have major depression but my GP hasn't been able to find any medication that I can use as I also have Long QT and many antidepressants could cause a cardiac arrest (which I have had before) - I have been suffering depression for the last 4 - 6 months and after my mother's death 10 days ago I am ready to just give up.

Avatar n tn 07 Lynn, Suicidal thoughts and psychotic symptoms can be present in both Major Depression and Borderline Personality Disorder. These disorders often go hand in hand. In the midst of a depressive disorder, it may be difficult to diagnose borderline personality traits, especially in an adolescent. People may have thoughts of hurting or killing themselves in both disorders, so it is not a specific diagnostic feature. Zoloft is an effective antidepressant.
Avatar n tn He was diagnosed with Major Depression with psychotic features. He has been on 20mg of Zyprexa, 100mg of Wellbutrin, 60 mg of Prozac for three years. Is this a normal course of treatment?

209227 tn?1242346745 I was diagnosed w/ Major Depression and an eating disorder 20 years ago and have been on Antidepressants ever since. Does anyone know of a good top-rated Antidepressant I can take that does not cause weight gain. I recently got back on Wellbutrin - 300 mg, but feel I need a little more of something. Was on Cymbalta but had to go off of it because I was sleeping to much when I was taking it. I was sleeping way to much. Felt like I was sleeping my life away on the Cymbalta.

Avatar n tn While Major depressive dissorders can effect the body in many physical ways, I have never heard of "physical Depression" without mental depression. Maybe something I have never heard of before.

665908 tn?1225291852 If she were suffering from Major Depression then there is a whole huge host of very profound symptoms she would be complaining about. (not always, but Major depression and anxiety is so painful that there would be other indicators I think) I would advise you to do a google search for "symptoms of Major depression." This will give a list of the signs and symptoms of a sufferer. You will find many sites that have links to such info as far as symptoms.

Avatar m tn Hello, I have not heard of Lovan, but you sound as if you are suffering withdrawal symptoms. The problem is withdrawal and depression can have the same symptoms, so it is difficult to know what is going on. If you are in doubt, I think you should have a chat to your doctor. You obviously do not want to take the anti-depressant any longer, so if you can, ride it out for a bit longer, and see if things diminish.
Avatar n tn I think depression can be a combination of things - both physical and emotional. I used to get mind blowing headaches, which was partly caused by my depression, and then because I had them, it made me feel emotionally worse. It's a nasty cycle. From what you've described, you've been under a ton of stress, getting married is up there in the stress meter! I know when I've been ill, which I went through recently, it sure made my mood drop.
Avatar n tn Women are more likely to have anxiety disorders than men. Anxiety can be manifested by symptoms such as dizziness, light-headedness, restlessness, sweating, among others. Like most other psychiatric disorders, anxiety can be divided into different types - Panic Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Phobia, specific Phobia,Post Traumatic Disorder, Acute Stress Disorder. Anxiety can also be secondary to a medical condition.
Avatar f tn In magnesium deficiency, neuronal (BRAIN) requirements for magnesium may not be met, causing neuronal damage which could manifest as depression. Magnesium treatment is hypothesized to be effective in treating major depression . These magnesium neuronal deficits may be induced by stress hormones, excessive dietary calcium as well as dietary deficiencies of magnesium.
