Avatar f tn I have been depressed since early 20's and have taken many forms of anitdepressants. I always end up quitting them because of the sexual side effects. Then I will spiral down again and start taking them again. When I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism I started having "panic attacks". Now I am HYPOthyroid as a result of RAI treatment. In my present state I am still depressed AND have anxiety.
Avatar n tn Six years ago, I had a complete thyroidectomy. Diagnosed with Graves Disease two years prior, we couldn't get my thyroid under control, I had been off the charts hyper- (too high) and awfully hypo- (too low.) To this day, I can't fight a constant sense of depression and anxiety. This was never a problem prior to my thyroid going nutso. My doctors had said "Oh you're just depressed" but I swear that SIX YEARS seems too long to be purely "just" anything, no?

1032715 tn?1315987834 The melatonin signal forms part of the system that regulates the sleep-wake cycle by chemically causing drowsiness and lowering the body temperature, but it is the central nervous system (more specifically, the suprachiasmatic nuclei, SCN) that controls the daily cycle in most components of the paracrine and endocrine systems rather than the melatonin signal.
1221258 tn?1267546029 I definitely know that doctors and psychiatrists do not prescribe any medications that have the potential of addiction without considering that because there are specific forms that they must complete as regards any medication that is a controlled substance and any of those prescriptions are specifically monitored by the FDA.
Avatar f tn Funny thing is the doctor gave it to me for insomnia and hoping for weight gain, but all it does is the opposite. (Could be I need a higher dosage) I did get rid of the headache 2 days ago. It does give my brain energy, like a hyper feeling. I want to take my ambien, but the on call doctor told me not to and to continue the same dosage until my regular doctor comes back from vacation. I don't know if I need the sleep, but doctor tells the amount of sleep I get is not normal.
Avatar f tn -Edgar Allen Poe Any person who is taking medication should already be aware that there are dangers in abruptly stopping or decreasing dosage. I wasn't suggesting you stop taking them right away or even at all, if you really don't want to. But for those who have not started, they should have more of the big picture as it does factor, should factor, into every huge decision being made.
351317 tn?1204755471 My Psychiatrist happens to be a standing member of the center for Psychpharmocology. He provides me with the absolute latest studies regarding new advaces in the treatment of medication resistant people such as you and I are. Him and his coleges have a theroy that there may be more undiscovered types of Bi-polor depression that result in a lot of patient mis-diagnosis.
20003388 tn?1515169640 I've come off Lamotrigine, Gabapentin, Zyprexa and Seroquel cold Turkey as well (not by choice) and Paxil was, by far, the worse withdrawal. I appreciate all the input from both of you. It's good that you guys are giving me suggestions of things to do or have checked in case there was something I hadn't considered. As far as the vitamin D3, my levels actually fall within normal range with the supplementation that I take. That probably means without supplementing I would probably be low.
Avatar n tn All the web sites I have been to link mental health and well being to the function of the thyroid. I am on zyprexa/celexa combo for the bipolar and synthroid/cytomel for my lack of thyroid.I also have a therapist that works with my med manager and I like to say my bi polar is in remission.I take my meds faithfully now for 6years and that is a bi polar record. Let me know if I can be of any help cause I have been there where you are and I understand. Prayers and hugs for you.
Avatar f tn In contrast, bipolar II involves hypomania in which elevated symptoms are less severe but still clearly different from usual mood and last for at least four days. In both forms of the illness, depressive episodes tend to be more frequent and disabling than mania. Sufferers spend 32-50% of follow-up in depressive episodes and only 1-9% in elevated states.5 Most patients have inter-episode periods of recovery, but over 90% relapse without medications.

Getting out of it is a progressive de-habitualisation, like learning to stop smoking,or learning to be more positive in general. You have to think of your recuperation in terms of months, not days. And even at that, it is still quite difficult at times.
Avatar f tn ) I still have anxiety issues, but I know that it is still early and takes time for hormones to readjust. If you can use alternate forms of birth control I would try stopping and see what happens. My period has been on time since I stopped and they have been fairly short and light. Putting all those hormones in our bodies certainly has consequences and I think increased anxiety may be one of them.
Avatar n tn This is a very slow process, but after increasing my Armour Thyroid dosage, I started to have very good days last July with no SOB. Still far from being out of the woods because now Armour Thyroid cannot be found anymore, big shortage in the country, but I finally was prescribed a similar medication and hopefully we'll keep increasing my dose. We'll see if that really helps.
