Avatar n tn My family does have a history of manic depression and bipolar disorder as a matter of fact my dad has both. I love my wife and kids and I know I am now at the age my dad was at when he got sick I shall say. I have SEVERE mood swings that are unexplainable my wife said she never in her life has seen someone who gets AS mad as QUICK as I do. I have been doing alot of research on the subject I'm really not one to talk about my problems.
Avatar f tn There is slurring, yelling, and extreme anger w/her.. However, she also suffers from depression and other symptoms that seem to be manic. So, my question, how can we help her.....do we start w/the mental or the alcohol. She had plans to come here tonight (from out of state) to spend the holiday. Only to end up canceling her trip, she has been driving us nuts for the last four days. This isn't the first time, but definitely the worst that I have yet experienced.
484180 tn?1209160023 I am 27 years old and still fighting for a diagnosis. I have been treaded for manic depression, bipolar and personality disorder, all since the age 13. I didn't think I had ADD until about a year or so ago. Now its too late. As a child and teen I was a brain. A straight A student, also dreamy and bored, which lead me to skipping school, boys, and the wrong friends. Since then, I get all the good jobs, then quit after 6 months.
Avatar f tn To the best of my knowledge depression does not have physical symptoms and in untrained eyes depression can mimic other things like the natural process of grief, that is as I said natural. The way the system is set up today it is very difficult for a dr to get the history and information that is necessary not only to know but to understand in order to diagnose a patient correctly with mental illness. Sorry, I went on a rant there.
574118 tn?1305138884 My main problem is bipolar depression. But depression is depression no matter it's bipolar one or unipolar/major etc.. I have to resolve this problem and I don't know other solutions than AD's, even if it says lamictal or abilify. Alright i am preferring the near gains with the long and future pains, hoping that eventually somebody somewhere will find the clue. Sure there must exists a trivial and clear solution but needs an intelligent person.

Avatar f tn Yes, Anxiety is a definite side effect of ADD. In fact, that and depression are pretty classic symptoms. I assume your doc is a psychiatrist, not a psychologist, since he is doing the prescribing? The following is an adult ADD site that has a ton of information. I think you will find it very helpful. http://jeffsaddmind.com/for-first-time-visitors Here is a site that is easier to read - http://www.webmd.
965737 tn?1250298055 there's a good tutorial on treating patients with depression or panic, take the quiz and see how many questions you can answer correctly, after answering they will tell you if you are right, and if not, what the proper clinical response is....you'll be way ahead of the curve if you spend an hour on this before talking to your doc again. good luck to you sweetie, and like I said, don't worry, I think maybe your reaction might prove in the end to be a blessing in disguise.
Avatar n tn Have been drinking lots of fruit and veg drinks, taking vitamins and trying to be healthy but to no avail. The symptoms I have are like flu symptoms, but it's been 2 weeks now. Reading through the other threads this seems like a long time as a few people mention that after 1 week they feel better. What do you all think? Is it normal to take so long to feel better from taking such a low dosage in the first place? Any replies gratefully received. Take care all.
Avatar n tn My doctor actually told me to stick with the gold bond if it works, but that's treating the symptoms...sigh. I just had a run of anti biotics after a surgery, wouldn't that take care of any kind of BI/yeast/uti??
Avatar n tn being able to *** a few times a week was also a good stress reliever, but now i've sunk into a deep depression over many issues, the latest being losing my manhood. Once ina while I take 1/2 a Cialis which helps maintain erection if i really work it, but have lost all sexual desire and most of sensation in my penis.
