Common Questions and Answers about Major depression treatment plan


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?
Avatar f tn I'm sorry not a lot of people responded to your post. I do 95% agree with ILADVOCATE. The info he gave you is pretty much on target. I wish I could tell you that this type of Depression would just go away like the flu or cold, but unfortunatly that is not usually the case. The only 5% left that I was talking about is HOPE. You never know what new treatments are around the corner and that means hope for a cure or maybe even a treatment so good that it eliminates 100% of our symptoms.
Avatar f tn I posted a question back in August about medication available for major depression whilst having SVT's and Long QT. I thought I would update everyone that replied, on my outcome.

The most effective treatment for Major Depression is a combination of psychopharmaceutical treatment and therapy. As the LA treatment center's web page says "An interferon-alpha induced mood disorder is very simply a depressive disorder that is caused by HCV treatment." Cheers!

3143186 tn?1342986441 I feel like I am caged in the deep recesses of my soul. I am definitely suffering from Major Depression and I hate it. I know it is only a feeling and feelings change and it is just going to take another week or two before I feel better. I just pray to God and ask Him to take this burden from me....or at least lessen my burden. I need to touch the hem of the robe of Jesus to get healed. Please Father, Help Me Cope!!!
1453060 tn?1287443316 Today I set my alarm for 8am. I wanted to wake up early but unfortunately I didnt wake up till 4pm! When I woke I felt so depressed and dope sick. I missed all of my classes and I missed my doctors appointment. If I dont change my ways I will either end up dead or in jail. My goal is stay starting this month. I couldnt acheive this goal because I did not have any subs to keep withdrawal symptoms down so I went saw my heroin dealer for 3 bags so I could feel normal.
Avatar f tn Having a really tough time today! Am not really thinking of ways to die, but am definitely thinking of reasons for it. Again, idealizing the end of life and the pain as it is, more so than anything. Came to many realizations today and just want to run and hide from the rest of the world, until it passes, or life is just over. Not feeling like this is the only way out, just feeling like this is just a final release of all that I have held onto or what sometimes holds on to me.
Avatar f tn Woke up feeling depressed. Texted Justin to see if he wanted to eat at my moms house tonight and naturally that was a no. Was frustrated and fed up, he didn't do the drive way yesterday and is showing no signs of coming home to do it. Pissing me off. So depressed, so suicidal. Do not want to call anyone, just stuck in it. Want to be left alone! I feel done in life. So so sad today. Justin came home with Kirsten, I went back to bed.

Avatar n tn i was diagnosed with hep c ten years ago and thought i was fine because i never had symptoms. i finally went to an internal med dr., who told me that i could have liver problems with no symptoms, but that because i have major depression,there is no treatment available so he won't bother with a liver biopsy.
Avatar n tn My mom was diagnosed with major depression 2 years ago & responded well to medications primarily Zoloft. A year into treatment all her medications were tapered & discontinued. She then had a relapse after 4 weeks, since then she has been started on different medications each time & her symptoms continue to persist. Currently she is on Zoloft 100 mg BID, Elavil 75 mg BID & Bupropion 150mg QD.

Avatar m tn ECT is usually used for patients with SEVERE major depression when the patient has not responded to the other treatments available. Anxiety can be a major symptom of depression and was for me. I had ECT treatments 25+ years ago and they did not help me. A good psychiatrist can advise you what a good treatment plan is for you.

2011699 tn?1328933353 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 n tn ve had many episodes of major depression--as well as episodes of more moderate depression--over the past decade or so. Only a handful of these episodes were severe enough to require medication and/or hospitalization. I've also had lots of periods when the depression seemed to lift, though I'm always prone to a melancholy that lasts longer and runs deeper than 'the blues.
Avatar f tn I just got results back from a QME psychologist that stated I had MDD and was at risk for suicide. The report suggested that I get an appointment with a psychiatrist for medication for depression and anxiety. It has been over a month and I h ave heard nothing. When I asked my lawyer she said we would have to keep trying to get it to go through. I feel very anxious and depressed and feel like I can do nothing to myself feel better.
Avatar f tn Once these are ruled out, you can begin a treatment plan consisting of therapy, exercise, and medication if needed. Hope this helps.
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.
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.
