Avatar n tn I have been trying to come off methadone on my own for 6 months and have failed repeatedly due to the high levels of anxiety, sleepless nights, fatigue, and depression. I weigh all of 102 and everyone thinks I'm on "crack". I've been on methadone for about 2 yrs. On average i took about 10mg/day. My doctor of 10 yrs. dropped me because I missed a few appts. as did my Psych.
Avatar m tn I was on an anti depressant that got rid of depression and anxiety, but since stopping a year ago anxiety has crept slowly back. I do so want to try and manage without medication. I think it depends how severe your anxiety is. I keep myself occupied as best I can as my anxiety is caused by loneliness. I know what my problem is, so can face it, and try to deal with it. I understand you do not want to take pills if you can avoid it, but if you feel you can cope, see how you go.
Avatar m tn It gives you very accurate info on all types of anxiety and panick attacks there is. Although it wont help you overcome you health anxiety as only you can but it does help reduce the symptoms drasticaly and minimizes irrational patterns of thought with the exercises and psychological exercises it tells you to do but its much more complex than what I make it to be.
Avatar f tn Although many people are treated with anti depressant drugs, these medications do not cure the underlying hurt or sadness that is the true cause of the depression. When the medication is taken away the depression usually reappears. Learn to overcome depression by understanding and practising: The conscious ability to relax and release stress any time, anywhere. The ability to focus the mind. The ability to neutralise or reprogram subconscious "hurt memories".
Avatar m tn They are made to reduce Both anxiety and depression. Once they are controlled, perhaps you can participate in the exposure therapy with less discomfort and more success. Then your brain can see the success you're having, and it becomes accustomed to experiencing previously anxiety-producing stimuli, without the panic reaction. Then the stimuli is no longer powerful, and if you like, with a toolbox full of coping skills from a competent therapist, you can titrate down the medication.
Avatar f tn I was still experiencing depression and anxiety. I have since been on and off - never in all this time, completely eliminating the symptoms. Eight months ago I discovered I had a food allergy that was the underlying cause of feeling bad which triggered my (ongoing symptoms as I believe those two original traumatic experiences no longer affect me - I have been through hours and hours of counselling). I have eliminated this food and feel 90% better.
Avatar n tn I know at least for me, that I had a paralizing fear along with my depression so I really could not tell where my depression ended and the incredible fear began. What I am asking really, is there an extreme problem that makes you feel so bad that you just automatically think it is depression all the time? I thought it was severe depression all the time, but when the fear ended, & I literally thank God for that, I realized I was not depressed all the time.
Avatar n tn You may want to consider therapy to help you overcome your shyness/social anxiety. It will be okay once you see your doctor...take care.
1679320 tn?1306386514 Heya guys I was recently told that anxiety and depression are very closely linked by my doctor. I was also aware that for some people they have a chemical imbalance that causes them to be depressed that they cannot fix without medication. Is this possible with anxiety as well and if so is medication the only answer to take away that anxiety which is caused by something physical and not mental.
4971738 tn?1390568984 It is a battle field of the mind but we have to overcome it and not let our adversities, trials and sufferings overcome us. We have to remind ourselves of this daily that we will overcome it and not be overcome'd! Just know you are worthy of happiness and peace. Do you have any interest that can help you deal with some of your emotions? I used to do art and fishing. This always relaxed me and the art helped with release my feeling. I can't even paint due to not be able to sit or stand.

1764174 tn?1313462480 I'm glad that your able to do that for yourself, strive for the best and prepare for the worst, hopefully your care group is successfully working out for you, if it's been more then 2 weeks and the anxiety medicine isn't working, give your doctor a call and see what your options are some anxiety medications make your anxiety worse, that's what happened with me when I was taking zoloft, I wish you all the best!
Avatar f tn Have you ever done therapy, or just relied on medication? Remember, the drugs don't cure you, they just work on your symptoms, so they don't eliminate the need to find a good therapist. If therapy works, and there's not guarantee about that, you might learn to think differently. Good luck.

200220 tn?1361955154 I took antidepressants for a while and have graduated to anxiety meds. even though I don't anxiety and little depression, like blue Mondays, I take them for Graves' Rage, and they truly help. I would have lost family and friends if I hadn't taken these meds. For cramps I take mega dose of calcium, potassium, magnesium, thiamine (B1), pantothenic acid (B5), and pyridoxine (B6) in which I take a good B-Complex 100. Vitamin E has also been said to help minimize cramp occurrence.
2105456 tn?1334368647 Not easy, I know. Everyone here has depression, we all know how you feel. Combined with anxiety and panic attacks, life is very difficult. Keep in touch with us here, and we will listen. I am overweight too, and the only exercise I do is walking. I keep my head down, and don't look people in the eye, and that way you are not obliged to acknowlege people if you don't want to. I have got past that stage, and with the help of anti-depressants live a near normal life.
Avatar f tn You are having classic symptoms of both depression and anxiety disorders. You are not unique as myself and others here can definitely relate to the stress, hopelessness, pain and frustration. You mentioned that you were seeking counseling. Is this with a psych specialist? Have you been given a formal diagnosis? There is help available through therapy and/or medication. You don't have to, nor were you meant to live this way.
Avatar n tn I cant tell you how to overcome this but i do suffer depression and im on medication. Im only 9 weekd gone but ive already had 3 kids so i can tell you that labour for me is the easiest bit about been pregnant. The 9 months leading up to it are usually hell. Already in the past few weeks ive noticed myself not chatting to my friends as much as normal and a few times a week no curtains get opened in the house etc. But ive never feared labour so i cant advise on this.
Avatar f tn Go to your dr and seek support from your family. Anxiety and depression will not effelt the babies health directly unless You're not taking care of yourself (eating enough and getting enough fluids). You could try mindfulness to help with the anxiety and depression (Google it or download a mindfulness app). Look at the website www.getselfhelp.Co.uk for self help workbooks in managing anxiety and depression. If you feel suicidal...seek help straight away.
398624 tn?1266273049 I just wonder if this sounds like it could be depression and anxiety combined that makes me so dizzy and all? It's just that feeling this sick makes me so unhappy. If I didn't feel so bad all the time, I could deal with things. Can depression or anxiety make you where you don't want anyone to touch you (not sexually) just the slightest touch or noise will adjetate you? Can it make your head and eyes feel really funny? When I look at things, they don't look real.
Avatar n tn 4) Has there likely been a permanent physical/chemical change in my body, from the drug use, which has caused these severe anxiety/depression symptoms? If so, can I eventually overcome them through proper medication and therapy? Thanks!
Avatar m tn Even if the symptoms arent somataforms, they can be caused my anxiety. I was having so much anxiety that I couldnt eat of sleep, which made my "symptoms" even worse. I took a vacation and my symptoms went away...I am under some stress now so I am getting a little anxious again. Ive been to the STD clinic three times in the last four months, and will go once more tomorrow. After that I have promised myself only to go at the intervals they recommend.
411389 tn?1230128077 I am posting in the hope that you may be able to enlighten me as to what medication is normally recommened for anyone suffering from Social Anxiety/Depression/Panic Attacks. I have been on Diazepam for about 10 years and recently was prescribed Effexor. I stopped taking the Diazempam and started on the course of Effexor (37.5 mg daily) and I've felt my life been turned upside down ever since.
Avatar n tn I am writing because I recently began suffering from anxiety attacks and perhaps some symptoms of depression, both of which run in my family. I was an avid pot smoker for several years, smoking at least three times a day. I experienced my first anxiety attack while I was high; at first, I thought it was a "bad high," but my second and third attacks told me it was something more.
Avatar f tn Hi there; I also suffer with anxiety and depression, so i can totally understand how you feel. I was not prescribed Prozac, I am on Cipramil, but it takes 2 weeks according to my doctor for the drug to start working and can make anxiety temporarily increase when you first start taking it. Try not to think about if it is working or not because that will also increase your anxiety as well.
1664673 tn?1303045773 I suffer from general high anxiety as well with slight depression. This all recently came to light and I am sure it is the reason for me abusing oxycodone, hydro, etc. It did make me feel like everything was a okay but soon that feeling faded and I was more nervous than ever. You have to deal with your depression and anxiety, this is probably the reason for you using/abusing drugs. You say you are on zoloft, did you feel it is working for you?
