Avatar m tn Hi I am a 30 year old male. I am on Meds for panic disorder/social anxiety disorder and depression. I'm on a bit of a cocktail, Wellbutrin, Klonopin, Prozac,Propanol, a goal of my MD and mine is to make the cocktail smaller. I am fortunate to have a great doc who actually does 45minute sessions. He listens and wants to know what is going on in the patients life, wants the patients input on Meds. He is not a drive thru doc like I hear about and have experienced who sees 4 patients an hour.

I have had anxiety and hypochondriasis throughout my life , but only recently have developed Panic Disorder.

Avatar n tn Your post already suggests that there is a component of anxiety here and anxiety can heighten the sensations of other processes like the flu. IN fact, in some instances anxiety alone could account for many of the symptoms you mention. If you are concerned that you might have gotten an STD (including HIV) from the exposure you describe, my advice is to go get screened for STDs to make sure that you don't have anything.
Avatar m tn I've developed an anxiety disorder, from a big panic attack about a year ago on weed. I never had any anxiety before this and am starting counseling tomorrow at my school. You think there's a chance I can recover from this without any medication? I have been getting lots of head shaking/nervousness/edgyness in social situations. Thanks.
Avatar m tn That is seperate from schizophrenia. Some symptoms you describe could be part of anxiety disorder but many describe paranoia and having trouble with social relations which are part of schizophrenia. I would suggest you speak to your psychiatrist more about this. Perhaps taking ecstasy triggered the onset of schizophrenia.
Avatar m tn I saw a therapist and he did diagnose me with a social anxiety disorder but I realized I have been masking my anxiety with other forms of drugs, even if that drug was just alcohol all of my life. He recommended that I be put on some sort of benzo and antidepressant. I'm kind of nervous because I don't know about combining those two, I'll have to ask my doctor. But thanks for all of your advice, it helped especially when I was at my lowest more than you guys know.
Avatar m tn Thanks for your support and response. I was treated from the ages of about 13 to 19 for social anxiety disorder with paxil. I have no family history of neurological problems. I have been taking lexapro since it was prescribed to me initially at a start dose of 10 mg tapered up to 30. Recently, my psychiatrist has added seroquel at 100 mg twice a day. It should be noted that i stopped taking paxil on my own about 4 years ago.

Avatar f tn Hello, Excessive sweating is called hyperhydrosis. Excessive sweating in the face can result from an overactive sympathetic nervous system,sometimes due to substance abuse. Mild social stimuli with stress can cause excessive facial sweating which can also involve the scalp and the neck. Endoscopic thoracic sympathicotomy is a very effective way to treat severe facial sweating.
1351968 tn?1278205300 Schizophrenics will often have the same disconects, but there is more to the disorder (word salad, catatonia, social isolation, social dysfunction, and impairments in the way the person thinks and speaks). Sometimes a person will go to the doctor because they're hallucinating (like me when I was 17) and get diagnosed as schizophrenic because the doctors haven't noticed or seen any shifts or signs from the bipolar.
10912630 tn?1413770190 My mother had severe social anxiety and severe major depressive disorder along with many other health problems. When she corrected her low stomach acid (which was preventing nutrients needed to make neurotransmitters such as serotonin) she finally started to improve.
Avatar n tn Since autism is a spectrum disorder, and because so many symptoms individually can be attributed to other syndroms and even normal behavior, it is difficult to say. any search on the internet of symptoms of autism will tell you that it's different for all cases. there are however some warning signs. For example, repetitive behaviors, delayed social and communication skills, hyper or hypo sensitivties, etc... If you have any concerns, i suggest you speak to your pediatrician.

Avatar f tn s never even seen a doctor to find out. My dad has social anxiety disorder, and my grandma (his mom) was in and out of mental hospitals. My dad is the youngest of 9 but most of his siblings are on some form of mood stabilizer. Mental illnesses can definitely be genetic but it's not guaranteed to pass. Oh and I can tell you first hand, medication only works if you take it the right way everyday.
Avatar f tn I could give you a suggestion of what to adjust to but first find out by speaking to your psychiatrist what your full diagnosis is and whether you have anxiety disorder as well or whether you are getting medication side effects. As for information on mood disorders google "Depression Central" and here's a list of mood stabilizers that are approved medications but used off label as experimental mood stabilizers:
