1685280 tn?1305435653 I have made the internet my best friend when it comes to finding out about my Bi-Polar/Manic Depression. Medications, symptoms, different types of episodes and every other question i have. I have been dealing with this for 16 yrs and treating it for most of that. I still have questions that are unanswered, and med's that don't work. Not to mention i still ride the roller coaster every day with not real cure.
Avatar f tn Geodon was approved as an antipsychotic for its primary use all over the world. Geodon has some concerns such as heart arrythmia though and its the only antipsychotic with this problem (out of the ones approved in the U.S. at least). Generally out of all of the antipsychotics Abilify is the least likely to cause weight gain and diabetes and sedation. Geodon was used more for a while because of this but Abilify is generally used more now. Did you ask about that one?
Avatar f tn I posted a similar message on the depression forum but thought perhaps I should post on here as well. I have sypmtoms which sound similar to both depression and bi polar. Ive been like it for years, although Im 'ok' for long periods of time. My mood swings can last hours, days or weeks and Im driving myself crazy! I I can swing from happy to sad to angry to irritable and everything in between within the course of a day.
Avatar n tn acknowledged the sexual side effects but said that the withdrawl symptoms were due to my depression still being presant, not quitting the drug. I'm sure he knows more about it than I do but it really doesn't matter what the reason, it was not pleasant.
Avatar n tn I have Thallasemia Minor and thought I was just lazy because the Drs. said it has no symptoms. I also had some depression and anxiety attacks. My dad, brother and son have it, too. They don't seem to get as tired as I do, tho. I can relate to that vision thing, too. I wear glasses, but sometimes I just have a hard time seeing clearly.

17567 tn?1276205629 Dear Phil, Bipolar Disorder as you are probably familiar manifests with extreme mood swings. Pheochromocytoma is a tumor of the adrenaline gland that episodically secretes high level of catecholamines. The sufferer presents with attacks of sweating, palpitations, nervousness and high blood pressure, somewhat similar to panic attacks. It is important to note that pheochromocytoma is rare.
Avatar n tn My questions are, 1 does this seem far fetched. 2 if not, what areas of the US would better suit someone that suffers from these symptoms. 3 how do you get your spouse to believe your suffering, and that an aspirin wont work.
574118 tn?1305138884 the scariest presentation i have experienced is a "mixed episode". like being manic with extreme dysphoria and depression at the same time. i'd rather be straight manic or depressed- my mood becomes totally unpredictable, and i have little control over my impulses. this is the type of thing that would keep me from showing up to work. i just got pulled off AD's because the steroid injections 4 days ago are jacking me up something fierce.
574118 tn?1305138884 My parents took me to a couple of psyhologits while I was in high-school but I didn’t have that strong depression symptoms then. My depression problems got much worse when I started my university and my parents are far from me and there is nothing they can do from home. So if I state some of my symptoms, could you please let me know if there might be a chance I could have BP or any other problem that require medical help? 1. According to other people I could have a very nice life.
5559066 tn?1369870350 after getting out from ICU and I was in there for 3 days. I was feeling better. I didn't have any symptoms but when it hit the week mark they came back plus some ten fold. so ill and weak I couldn't get out of my bed. I had to send my son away to live with my sister because I could take care of him. I couldn't even wear clothes, I was covered head to toe in one big blister. couldn't sit, stand nothing.
Avatar f tn Oh yes def def have episodes of almost manic like behaviour, not nice at all. Not everyone with BPD has these manic like attacks but I certainly do. Following the manic like period I'm usually stable for a short time however, this does not last. Before I know it I'm headding down into depression and ultimately suacidal.
Avatar f tn , moods all over the place, insomnia, hypomania, agitation, you name it I felt it - although I fortunately haven't hit the terrible depression and got myself to the doc quick smart. Saw the psychiatrist who prescribed zyprexa, god it was awful, had terrible allergic reaction. I now have 2 weeks to wait before I see the psych again. In the meantime I've had some advice on here and I've trawled the internet to find out other medications available in this country.
589461 tn?1286436465 hi all have been diagnosed with clinical depression for about 12 years but now doctors are concerned that i may have bipolar as i also have manic phases so are referring me to a psychiatrist for an assessment, i was just wondering if anyone else has been referred and what happens as i am a bit of a worrier if i don't know what to expect, i live in the uk so my gp cannot deal with this which is why i am being referred as this is the norm in this country.
Avatar m tn Quetiapine is used to help relieve depressive symptoms in bipolar disorder where I live in the UK, though I wasn't prescribed it for that and for the record it didn't help the depression in my case. Don't give up, if a change is needed go see your doctor ( which you said you were doing, I didn't miss that's. ;-) ) A different combination may be needed.
Avatar f tn i have been having problems with depression for years going from severe to moderate. No one seems to want to talk about my symptoms though. i feel very detached from everything , my prospective seems to change.... what i see doesn't seem real .I experience moods swings that can change within a few hrs. I often feel suicidal infact on a regular basis. i have become a hermit not having any contact with people. I feel tired all the time even when i have been sleeping ok.
Avatar f tn I was thinking it maybe the menopause or other symptoms. I really do not want to start on drugs my mother was a manic depressive and growing up I saw what all the drugs did to her. Any ideas would be gratefully received.
370801 tn?1264408618 However, maybe it's the winter blues or my recent move to this dreary climate (London UK) but I have been feeling the physical and mental / emotional symptoms of my depression return and worsen. To the point of just wanting to hide in my room and not see anybody. So, I went back on my wellbutrin xl, which is what I was taking before.. It has only been a few days.. today is the first day where that initial "high" has sort of seemed to cease.
1174869 tn?1441315268 Could this be a possible sign of cyclothymia or manic depression (its been going on for a while and I have phases where I am very happy and then very down with myself). I just dont really know what to do. Im very confused.
Avatar n tn Seroqual will help with anxiety and hypo/manic symptoms, which are far different then ADHD. Seroqual only had the tardive dyskinesia in high doses. It's a first rate and front line drug for BP. Children with BP tend to exhibit high levels of anxiety and it's very painful, and I can say this from a personal perspective. It's common to also add an ADHD med like Ritalin, it will actually calm down an ADHD child.
Avatar f tn It started off as dramatically increased irritability and over time, increased depression. That was the first year. Now, it's becoming overwhelming. Within the past months, my emotions seem to be out of whack. I go from sobbing my eyes out to no emotions to happy at least three times a day. It's usually not immediate change though. The moods themselves have become more extreme. My depression phase is full of suicidal thoughts and pleas to harm myself. My self-worth floors.
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 m tn Thank you all for the posts. Some days it seems as if the side effects get worse. I am just letting them work there way through as there is nothing else that I can do at this time. I have talked with the doctor that was refilling my script for me (not the original prescribing doctor), and of course the only suggestion was to see a psychiatrist. I can't afford the medications... so I don't know how I could afford to pay for a psychiatrist.
544292 tn?1268886268 Various withdrawal effects may include shakes, shivers, diarrhea, nausea, and possible flu-like symptoms. Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here. The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose).
Avatar f tn If you have made it to 20 with Aspergers, OCD, periodical Anorexia/Bulimia and now seem to have acquired Manic depression along the way, (which is why you looked up the labels) do not have money, societal importance or parental support and didn't make it through university as symptoms were exasperated by Glandular fever.
Avatar f tn Lamictal from what I believe is better on depression than mania. Depakoate is better on depression. Lamictal in high doses can enduce mania as it did in me so it had to be discontinued by my psychiatrist. However, that was over time. Generally I found it safe and effective. Tegretol is hardly used in the United States anymore due to drug interactions.
Avatar n tn hi there, first of all thank you for your forums, they are comforting me somewhat to know that im not the only one going through this anxiety! I am a 22 year old female from uk. This time last year i had sex with a a prtner upon where the condom came off half way through without us noticing, he ejeculated inside me. I also performed oral sex on him where he ejeculated into my mouth too.
