Psychogenic more likely.
Hello! I read your question carefully as well as other exchanges you have had with my colleagues and I am sorry about the state you are in.
I must say that my opinion corresponds to that of my colleagues, those symptoms are in the setting of anxiety and depression. Constipation is also a common finding, often as part of irritable bowel syndrome which coexists usually with anxiety.
One thing I would want to be checked though is thyroid function, as low thyroid levels could also cause all those symptoms. Check in your blood tests whether that has been done.
If that has been done I believe treatment with an SSRI anti depressant is the appropriate management.
I remain at your disposal for further questions.
Yes mood disorder is the cause
Thank you for bringing that info so promptly.
In that case yes, anxiety and depression are left as the most probable cause.
I recommend you start treatment as suggested above. I am optimistic that treatment will gradually make you feel better.
I hope to have been of help.
The treatment I recommended doesn't have any significant interaction with atorvastatin or enalapril, no worry.
Regarding the length of treatment usually it is at least 6 months. One important consideration is that antidepressants need some time to achieve their effect, at least 3-4 weeks, so you should be not consider the lack of improvement during the first couple of weeks as treatment failure, it is normal and the therapy should be continued for one month before judging improvement.
Of course I recommend you to be followed by a psychiatrist who can assess your condition before and after treatment in order to evaluate its efficacy.
I hope things work out for the best.
If I am your patient what you will advice me to take(write XXXXXXX name of medicine)
There are several drugs in the SSRI or SNRI group with similar efficacy and side effects.
But if I had to pick one, the one I most commonly use in my patients is Escitalopram (Lexapro), starting with a dose of 10 mg. I noticed it was also recommended by one of my colleagues in a past query of yours.
