4430260 tn?1355103257 Time slows down when you are depressed, well I don't have to tell you anything about depression. If you haven't fell into manic depression in a while I will give you some tips that I have figured out. The manic depression will pass. Sometimes after you make that switch and the mania is gone it in itself can cause depression. Improving your concentration is important as you start coming down. I was put on b12 when I fell back into rapid cycling and it seemed to help.
Avatar n tn Just the idea that they would have to live thier lives in such pain is very unnerving to me. Knowing that Manic Depression often ends in suicide makes me want to help them in any way I can. I have been to Manic Depression support groups but they have never helped. They depress me and I start to think it is hopeless.
Avatar f tn Smoking although clearly a good idea to stop does of course have withdrawal symptoms and also in noting why people with schizophrenia often smoked scientists are studying a new generation of antipsychotics based on the effects of nicotine (without the harmful effects). Clinical findings aside stopping smoking is rough for anyone so you can expect things to be difficult for a while and for standard symptoms from bipolar to worsen for a while.
Avatar m tn They are very similar and have same symptoms. Manic depression is hyperactivity. And depression is inattentive or withdrawal from interests. Start prescribing the adhd meds for depression or inattentive attention disorder, and, mood stabilization meds for maniac disorders or hyperactivity and leave psychotherapy for environmental issues and coping skills for change.

Avatar f tn I'm a mom, too, and I would do everything in my power to help my child. Nothing is too much to do for your children. If not them do you have an aunt, uncle, or grandparent that you're really close to and could talk to maybe? Maybe some one like that could help you and be willing to go talk to your parents with you. I was a 12yo girl with bipolar, so I know how hard it is. I'm not saying for sure that you are, but that it is a possibility. Please talk to someone.
676912 tn?1332816151 So it sounds like you get angry and irritated often because of something that is happening in your environment which doesn't sound in its self like bipolar, but i am not a doctor so I can't diagnose you any way. If you talk to a doctor, you can always turn down medication, and i only ever suggest to anyone to only take medication if that want to and make sure the doctor doesn't push them into something they don't want.
603015 tn?1329866573 I believe it is used in children. The psychiatrist needs to make a conclusive diagnosis first and if the tics started after she took medication he definitely needs to find out if that's the cause.
1065872 tn?1265657330 However, I would get hyper on it and talk fast and become restless and manic. In the later, months of taking it, I was feeling more depressed and suicidal. I went to my Doc. again and I am now on Zoloft. This took a month or so to kick in, but now i feel better. I do feel guilty, though thinking about all of the things I was feeling before and worry I have caused to my family. I am scared, these anti-depressants will wear off too, and I fear at any time I will go off the rails again!
414776 tn?1202742290 You dont have to have depression and if you are bi polar you need to be treated for the manic and the depression. I am sorry about your doc. but you should find a new one and get a therapist. I am bi poalr and I take celexana zyprexa for the manic and the depression. I ve been stable for 7 years. see about the therapist It does wonders for you.
1386425 tn?1280122758 A study has revealed that cannabis taken in small dose does not cause depression but in higher dose will tend to cause depression and/or aggravating depression. From my own personal point of view the study was not significant because of the lack of samples (people) and experiences based on mice. In another study cannabis could produce schizophrenia or be the onset of schizophrenia in individuals prone to schizophrenia.
Avatar n tn Hi, and welcome to the forum. Both of what was said above is what I understand. MS can cause what appears to be a rapid cycling of emotions, but it is more an emotional lability or instability. I have never read that Bipolar is particularly common in MS. However, Depression is very common. What may have happened is that you were already bipolar,, but mostly depressed, and the treament for the depression "unmasked" the manic or "up" phase.
Avatar n tn student in neuorpsychology and I take 75 mg of Zoloft and see a therapist once a week to deal with frightening thoughts of hurting children in my life and depression. Originaly, it was thought that the depression was secondary to the obsessions but now my obsessions are undercontrol (They are not in control of my life anymore) and I'm still depressed. I will go three days to a week of feeling alright and then I will be in a full depression again for another couple of days.
Avatar n tn next time it all hit me was around year 2000, didn't realise what was going on really until I recearched it during my latest bout (this/last year) and I now know it was manic depression from then on (utterly worthless feelings etc, terrified i'd end up having to kill myself etc (what a catch 22!)). huh typical. Just getting over my third 'down swing' like I say, never used medication since '93 and even then i saw little value in it.
Avatar f tn After reading up on depression, i explored into bipola/manic etc and i have a lot of those symptoms. I get urges to not pay bill and spend money like ive won the lottery and of course get myself into debt. When i get bad the voice in my head which is my voice tell me how to end things and ive really got to fight it so I dont do it. Im scared to admit most things to my doctor as I dont want to be sent to a mental hospital and then have social services involved with my kids.
Avatar n tn how long does the depression last. i know that i need to start trying to fill the void in my life but it isnt easy to do right now. i fear a relapse coming if this continues much longer............. also if for some reason i did relapse once 15-20 days from now and i only did it once, like a hydro/10 or 2, would i have 2 suffer the physical withdrawal all over????
Avatar n tn His debilatating depression is gone, but he has some new symptoms which have me concerned. He is almost manic in his behavior. He goes from talking nonstop about this and that, and will bounce of the walls so to speak in his physical actions. He cannot sit still! I know this sounds like a typical kid, but this is over the top. He will then sink into a low state, complaining that his Dad and I dont unterstand him at all, and that he wishes he were dead.
Avatar f tn I finished tx in May of this year and was on AD's in July becuause of the EOT blues/syndrome/depression. I too like you didn't take AD's while on tx or before tx but am on them now. I did pretty good while on tx but it was right at the very end, last couple of wks I noticed the change. I was like a basketcase and even remembering posting that I was falling apart at the end of my tx. I never even missed a day of work until the very end of tx. I can really relate to you...
Avatar n tn Stay strong WW, you can do this..... Ikayk....depression is MOST definately the next symptom you will go through....but in a few days that cloud will be lifted and you will see things much clearer. I am still going through some depression and not wanting to do anything....dont feel motivated, etc. butI guess if your using pills for 9 months straight ( have been using for 10 years off and on) you have to figure its going to take a little time to get your body back to normal.....
Avatar n tn , mood and anxiety disorders. The patient's symptoms and signs may vary in severity depending upon the amounts of alcohol used, how long it was used, and how recently it was used, as well as on the patient's individual vulnerability to experiencing psychiatric symptoms in the setting of excessive alcohol consumption.
Avatar f tn hi, I am type 1 bipoolar and was always considered hyper at that age. I was manic. Where I lived in England in the 60's and South Africa in the 70's. Both countries failed to recognize bipolar disorder at the time while here in Canada and the USA it was being treated. There are 2 basic bipolar disorders, Type one where people cycle through mania and depression and type 2 which is less mania and more depression.and both can be treated with medicine and therapy.
Avatar n tn I can go from being almost euphoric to a rage in just minutes. I've noticed cycles in my mental stability with horrible depression starting around May or June. My husband says he doesn't know what to expect when he comes home from work, if I am going to be his happy wife or his pissed off wife. When I do go into these rages, it's uncontrollable. Almost as if I am on the outside watching myself go off the deep end. It really scares me and my family.
Avatar n tn 24 hours after your last shot, you will JONES hard and rip a person's head off for a fix. It's Manic Depression in a syringe really. It's not your son's ONLY problem...but it's definitely happening and one of them. People on heroin don't rob banks and/or liquor's the people that have RUN OUT of heroin that do that. Life's a ***** and so are opiates. But she sure is enticing.
Avatar n tn At this point we are looking for direction more than anything. Below I'll list her symptoms in hopes that someone can help.
1742748 tn?1311300062 when ever anyone says anything about her parenting she says 'i would never treat my kids the way my mother treated me' i have made that same promise to any children i have in the future, that is if i live to have a future. who knows if she'll just push me far enough to off myself. plus, i worry alot about everything so thats anxiety. i have thought so many times of runnign away or to od on pain killers or just push my mother down the stairs or soemthing.
473036 tn?1211760512 In children they can. Most children with bipolar are diagnosed ADD/ADHD and when they do not respond to meds they are put on bipolar meds and do much better, hence their true diagnosis. In adult bipolars we get highs (mania) and lows (depression). Highs are excessive speed talking, racing thoughts (worse at night when trying to sleep), hypersexuality, excessive spending sprees, anxiety, irritability, not able to sleep, hyper, overproductive w/o staying on task.
Avatar n tn paxil side effects withdrawal symptoms and the REAL picture will very startlingly show itself. Cold turkey can be very disabling and even slow weaning can still result in big problems. Research. Educate yourselves before making decisions as to how to best to minimise these problems.
Avatar n tn as this can do permanent damage to the nerve cells in your central nervous system(brain and apinal cord), cardiopulmonary system and smooth muscle in your digestive tract( mainly the large intestine as these are the areas of the body where opiate receptors are widely spread. Tapering as slowly as possible will almost eliminate withdrawal symptoms. Once you stop taking them you will probably feel some withdrawal symptoms so always taper as slowly as possible toward the end. xoxo- D.
Avatar n tn I have seen a several doctors and have undergone treatment for everything from Manic Depression to Endometriosis with not avail. I have been on Orthotricyclen (merely to regulate) which sent me to the hospital in high school because of a goofball sized cyst on my ovary. Loestrin24fe (For Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) which made me have constant abdominal pain, terrible migraines and caused semi constant nausea.
