    Finally Saw A Psychiatrist

    I saw a psychiatrist for the first time on Monday and she diagnosed me with generalized anxiety disorder. She prescribed me Celexa to take once everyday, Xanax for panic attacks, and Zyprexa for nights when my mind just won't shut off. I haven't gotten the medication yet because she wanted me...

    Do you remember?

    I'm awful with pills. Getting prescribed antibiotics is like asking for a resilient continuation of whatever lead to a prescription in the first place. I'll even set an alarm, it goes off and I think, "Right! I'll go do that!" and then get distracted and forget. But any resistant infection would...

    A view on the dark side of the collective.

    It's funny how we, the depressed, are the ones who are "sick"... ... Shadow hour. A motherless child, an orphan of the galaxy - the collective soul, humanity... People feeling lost and confused. People hurting. A hungry void, a vermin within chants of fears and lies... false beliefs. What can...

    Anyone else react badly to drinking alcohol on meds?

    I've been taking citalopram for about 7 months now, and I'm really starting to struggle with the effects from drinking alcohol. I'm at University so naturally my life involves getting fairly drunk every now and then, which i still enjoy but sometimes i get into pretty bad states. I used to be...

    Looking for an antidepressant with minimal, permissible side effects

    Hi all! I am posting this here for the first time in a long while, since I want some more opinions before I make an expensive appointment with my psychiatrist (in my experience, they don't typically take your concerns into consideration much :( ). So, I am looking to get on medication again...

    side effects?? can't stop shaking

    I am really new to this whole treatment thing. I'm up to 100mg of Zoloft and 150 mg of Lithium and I'm taking Lunesta occasionally to sleep. It's been about 5 weeks. I don't really feel any different but my hands are really shaky all the time. I didn't even notice until one of my friends...

    Prazosin (minipress) is helping me a lot

    So I have only been taking it for a week and I have already noticed a difference. I wake up rested and have more energy to get stuff done. I started it to help with bad dreams that sometimes wake me up and intrusive memories before bed. I am wondering if anyone else had taken it?

    Feeling numb

    Today I feel numb because of the medication I use (antipsychotics). It scares me, because I feel cut off from myself, from others, from the world and from God because of the medication. It makes me feel emotionally and spiritually dead. I'm terrified that I will never come off and never recover...

    Nothing works if nothing changes

    I honestly feel like medication and therapy don't work! My medicine just makes me feel sleepy and tired, I guess I'm not happy with it because I expect them to make me feel...happy. Commercials about medicine made me think they would change my demeanor or change how I felt but I was wrong, so...

    Competition Time! The most crazy cures you've tried...

    Right folks, my last post got me thinking. I ran through the litany of treatments, therapies and interventions I've engaged with over the last twenty years; some more conventional than others. I believe that modern pharmaceuticals and talking therapies are probably the most effective. But I'm...

    New Year, New Meds...

    Haven't posted for a while due to the usual busyness around Christmas. All pleasant enough and not once did family notice or query the fact I wore long sleeves for a week, so pulled that one off with aplomb! Scars slowly healing, but still erring on the side of caution and keeping them covered...

    I don't quite know what is wrong

    Throughout my life, I've been Depressed, Suicidal, and diagnosed with OCD, Anxiety, Anorexia, and so on. I've always been really bad at asking for help and fairly resistant to the idea of going on medication (because of bad experiences being medicated too strongly when I was too young.) Now...

    Going off your medication?

    Have you ever gone off your medication for any reason? What was that reason and how did you feel? If you went back on your medication, why ?

    Time to throw in the towel

    The depression and anxiety has gotten to me, and this time it's not going to get resolved. Now, I just want out, and there is only 1 way. I called in sick to work in November 2015 because I was having panic attacks. I went back to work for a couple of days, where I had really bad panic attacks...

    Abilify

    I saw a psychiatrist today after waiting a little over a month for an appointment. Over the past couple of weeks I believe I have had a hypomanic or manic episode. I didn't sleep much but it wasn't affecting my energy, was acting very reckless by drinking and smoking a lot, and just generally...

    Is it easier to blame our behaviour on our mental health problems than to take responsibility?

    Please do not read if you are easily offended or triggered. I realise that the majority of us here on this forum will have diagnosed and undiagnosed mental health problems. Many of us will have had terrible things happen to us in our past that have traumatised us that shape the person who we...

    Best options/medication for anxiety?

    I am stuck living with someone so passively toxic that anyone he decides to be proper friends with ends up anxious, depressed or suicidal or in some cases, all 3. Now he doesnt realise he is doing this and due to what I can only figure is rather severe undiagnosed aspergers, explaining it...

    Medication Compliance and My Struggle

    I wasn't really sure where to post this but I figured it would be suitable for the Suicide Forum, so apologies in advance. To cut a long story short, I have an issue with medication compliance and I stopped taking my meds before Christmas. I am not entirely sure why I did it. I just kinda ran...

    a while back i was on a lot of medication. i was admitted to the hospital for tachycardia and confusion and the doctors thought it was seratonin syndrome from the high doses of latuda and lexapro. my bloodwork was normal, but we found that with the combined extreme anxiety i was dealing with...
