Common Questions and Answers about What does depression medication do


Avatar f tn i was wondering if u can get pregnant while u are on it. if so what do i have to do.
1551836 tn?1294151018 I think the depression is taking over my life. No matter what I eat and what I do nothing is happening. I don't even want to leave my room anymore and all I want to do is curl up and do nothing. I'm trying to push against it and I am trying to fight against the emotion, but nothing is working. I am on anti depressant medication but no luck. I am so grossed out when I look in the mirror and so sad when I get on the scale. It makes me not want to cook and eat healthy or work out.
1112208 tn?1258544842 what combination of medication does anyone find most effective especially concernig the anti-psychotic are you affected by some form of symptoms almost all the time with limited time spans of being almost symptom free?
2097734 tn?1333394338 I don't know what to feel. I guess there's a lot more going wrong right now than there is going right. I feel so depressed; maybe it's the week of no medication, or maybe it's just me. Sometimes I think that no one really loves me. Steven's bugging me for not contacting him; the truth is I just don't think it's going to work. I'm not ready for a relationship at the moment. I don't even know who I like. Everything's so confusing right now.
365714 tn?1292199108 I feel in a slump tonight. Does anyone notice? Does anyone care? I feel so alone. Anyways I took down some of my pictures and old journal entries Not that anyone would notice anyway. I doubt people look at my profile.
Avatar f tn I am currently looking for a new depression medication. I need some info on something that is NOT a SSRI, a hormone, and is not zoloft, celexa, or prozac......also something that does not contain salicylic acid aka aspirin. If anyone can help I would appreciate the help.
1248885 tn?1285832739 How long have you been on the Celexa? If at least 6 weeks, then you need to contact your doctor about how you are feeling, he is your best resource. They always start us out on the lowest dosage, and then depending on how we do on that....they may need to increase it. Most often what you're experiencing happens, and normally your doctor will want to see you at 4-6 weeks to determine if the medication is working, and go from there.
709671 tn?1252925732 i stumbled on a site called psych central...took a few quizzes there and on some other sites too! according to them, i am suffering from sever depression, mild to severe bipolar, ocd and/or trichotillomania, and adult attention deficit disorder[add]. i am out of therapy for almost 6 months now! the condition is worsening!
Avatar n tn This pertains to my first question about the multiple depression medication. Do these cause memory loss as well, for I have told my partner a lot of things about myself in just a matter of 3 months and she doesn't seem to remember most of those things. She also seems apathetic about what and how her kids talk to her. I don't know if this is a result of this medication or not.
1775180 tn?1314883778 I am a student so I dont know if that has a lot to do with it or if its just me. I do suffer from depression so again i have no idea if that plays apart. I need help.
Avatar f tn Hey there, this is my first time doing a post... Found out last week I'm pregnant, I'm currently 5 weeks! I couldn't be happier, but I have concerns about having depression and being on medication. By partner and I have been talking about wanting to start a family for sometime now. Back in April I made an appointment with my doctor and decided to go off my antidepressants as I wanted to do a trail run and see how I felt (wanting to be chemical free for when we do have a baby).
1680047 tn?1468911829 I dont think i will be preggo this month, my husband and i BD, but he does not ejaculate. He has made comments from a while back when i was in a rut and did not want sex, and now that i do he says he's not a robot.
1390847 tn?1344657468 Depression causes alot of chemicals to be released (imbalances). Check the foods you are eating and know every chemical the labels have listed. God (the higher power) has given us an automatic cure....instead of being so self-absorbed, open your heart and start helping others....this will in-turn change the way your thinking and change your life! Stop telling yourself you are depressed...the mind follows what-ever you tell it!
Avatar f tn hi all im new here, so please bear with me if i go on to much, first of can i just say i was diognosed with deppression an anxiety some time ago, i dont think i can accept that i have deppresion,i look at is as an embaresing subject,but thats the least of my problems, can i just say does the medication work, i dont know what to expect , i just want every thing back the way it use to be where i had so much confidents in myself,to get to the point i want to know if the med works over the last coup
Avatar f tn However, it may be Bipolar depression but it is still depression. All I can do is post my experience with hopes that it does help someone, the same way everyone else does.
Avatar n tn I am on it for bipolar depression, and it is working very well for me. I am not psychotic, nor does my psychiatrist think I am.
Avatar f tn I have depression issues pretty much all my life and have three kids of my own. The first thing you have to do is get your depression addressed by a doctor and get help with either medication or yoga or some sort of relaxation method. You need to fix yourself first before anything else can get better. It will take a while. You need to fix your mental state in order to be able to raise your son. Stop the spanking method because this is just telling him that it's okay to hit.
Avatar f tn I'm so sorry for all you're enduring. It does sound like you have depression which makes me wonder what the medication is your doctor gave you. If it is an antidepressant then you're on the right track. You should also consider some therapy to help you cope better and determine if this is all a result of losing both parents....which would send anyone into a depression! There are grief counselors who can help you as well.
Avatar m tn hey, i have suffered from anxiety now for nearly 10 months, i have tried CBT, talk therapies and vistis to my GP however i have been reluctant to try medication. i do feel my anxiety has been alot better since these therapies however it still does bother me alot and "lingers" through out the day. i have also noticed that i find it hard to enjoy the things i used to like going out with friends, and socialising and i am not myself anymore.
Avatar m tn He was very good and after a couple of meetings he prescribed me with medication for what he called a chemical imbalance in my brain that caused depression. The meds worked and I definitely wasn't as sad most of the time. So for seven years I've taken meds. More recently I've started to feel, emotionless and even angry (on the inside). Im not suicidal like I was in middle school, but I definitely don't feel good.
Avatar n tn My doctor recommended I take Zoloft, a medication for my depression, anxiety and panic attacks because therapy, mindfulness, and other strategies weren't helping me. My mom thinks I shouldn't take it. She says that it might make things worse. I have been doing my own research but I don't really know what to do. My mom said it is my choice to make. I am starting to doubt my feelings, and if my depression is as bad as it seems.
Avatar f tn Does the medication lovoxyl have anything to do with my triglycerides?
Avatar f tn I started getting better and have been recently thrown back way down. Does depression ever get better and stay better? I really, really hate fighting it just to get knocked down over and over. :(.
Avatar f tn re going to do pelvic ultrasounds every few months to watch for any. She told me that we should be able to hold off the cysts for a while with medication because of how early we caught it. According to the ultrasounds and looking over history---and whatever else it is they do in reverse pathology---I've only had PCOS for about 6 months before my GI caught it. I met with the dietition this clinic offers, Kendall, after.
