Anti depressant

Questions and answers on "Anti depressant"

my husband has a very large gastrinoma that has spread to the liver... he is most bothered by severe itching that keeps him from sleeping despite numerous forms of narcotics.. antidepressants ( seroquel , mirtazapine are of no benefit) he has tried various types of benedryl , atarax with no use. Just wondering if you have any other suggestions for the severe itchiness. I was reading that hyperparathyroidism is also associated with his condition and if increasing his vitamin D would be of any benefit pertaining to the itching. by the way his serum bile is not elevated - any help would be appreciated

His severe itching is caused by jaundice. Due to bile ducts obstruction or liver failure bilirubin accumulates in the body including skin. This causes yellow skin (not always visible), itching, dark urine, stools can be white.
He should visit his doctor, have...

Hi, I am a 47 year old female, with a BSN degree, with no major health issues except I am on 2 antidepressants (very long term) and a few psychiatric meds. I never eat more then once a day sometimes not even that as I am Extremely Picky. I eat no meat, fish, or poultry. I have had LONG TERM severe constipation, not relieved by Miralax, Colace, fiber etc. Over the past few months, when I do have a relatively "normal stool" instead of my customary "hard tiny pieces or balls" I have noticed yellow or orange oil floating to the top of the water in the commode. I attributed this to eating frozen pizzas & mac. & cheese (fatty foods) but now have read it can be a sign of Cystic Fibrosis, or celiac disease. I am now worried! Thank You.

Hello, I think you should come out of your depression regarding all your ailments; getting pregnant is not something difficult provided both partners are normal and there is no other issue in between both of you, your bloating and backache have no bearing on your fertility, since your hormone...

I was diagnosed a few years ago with borderline personality disorder, anxiety and depression, I have taken antidepressants forever since I was in my 20's I am now 39. I have had a lot of traumatic things happen in my life, My dad committed suicide today would have been his birthday. I have been abused in every way and I am trying to get my life back. For many years I've had no libido, no joy in my life. I've missed bdays anniversaries weddings etc. All because I felt depressed and didn't want to leave my house. I've missed so may things, I have this. I have just been weaned of celexa 4omg which I took for years with the Seroquel. My meds now are wellbutron xl 150mg, I started this pill less than two weeks ago, I have increased the dose to 150mg twice a day, I also take Seroquel at night. I have read so many testimonies on these meds and I am concerned. I have been getting severe stomach aches as well as feeling a slightly spaced out. I'm wondering if I should stop taking wellbutron and Seroquel and asking my dr to put me back on celexa. Do I have to take meds for life??? How does a dr really know if you have mental illness couldn't it just be due to life experiences and the need to get past them? I feel like I am stupid or labeled and its embarrassing, I just want my life back. I have no joy at all.

Firstly borderline personality disorder (BPD), makes a person vulnerable for mental illnesses. The thought processes that a person with BPD has is quite different from that of a person without the disorder, and it makes it difficult for the person to cope with day to day stresses that every...

Dear
Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your description. I suggest you not to worry much. As your neurologist can't find anything wrong with you, then, in my view it is very clear that you are a victim of laziness and negative thinking. I presume that you had made it a...

doctor1 MD

Hi
The Low sexual libido could be due to both depression as well as the side effect of medicine, after any physical causes have been ruled out. Have you discussed this with your psychiatrist? If not, please do so, since it needs to be clarified which is the cause.

If this has been diagnosed as...
