Wed, Jan 22 2:24am · Switching from a generic to a brand name in Depression & Anxiety

@jimhd In fact I cannot see any “major” difference between meds made in USA or KSA. I M not an expert nor am I pharmacist. But there is a problem with some antidepressants when you switch the brand name. I think this is a little complicated concept; even some physicians around me here in KSA are unaware about it. I have been taking Depralex for a year and a half. It is perfect to me. But I am afraid of relapse

The symptoms were: increased heart rate, los mood, lack of energy and headache. The good thing is that such symptoms immediately disappear once consuming the previous medication again! @lisalucier

Mon, Jan 20 12:51pm · Switching from a generic to a brand name in Depression & Anxiety

I have been diagnosed with major depressive disorder. My antidepressant is a generic that contains the same chemical as Cipralex. It is called Depralex and is manufactured in Saudi Arabia. The manufacuring has ceased. I tried other generic (Citoxal, made in KSA also) and causes me a terrible relapse. I had to get Depralex again. Depralex now is no longer available in the pharmacy. My physician suggested to switch to Cipralex. He said it is highly reputable and safe to use. I am still worried to switch, as the relapse is highly intensive if it were to occur. So how was your experiences with switching from a generic to a brand name? I have to decide what to do within two months i.e. before I consume the remaining quantity of Depralex

@mamacita If I were to share some of depression treatments that I suspect to be the most cutting-edge, I would list the following. Cupping therapy, hyperbaric oxygen, magic mushroom, ginger, beetroot, ECT ( side effects are possible) and TMS. i tried some of the above-mentioned foods and cupping therapy. The foods were truly good to me. Regarding hyperbaric oxygen, ECT and TMS, I wish to hear from someone who has tried these techniques

@artscaping In fact, I have tried meditation. It is great. Let me put it very briefly: Now I am in relapse; I know how to ease my depression; I am saying to myself: why should I go thru the long path of exercise, meditation and fighting negativity within my mind? Let us seek a magic-like treatment!

Look around you. Scientists are able to modify your DNA. They are able to even clone you! Aren’t they able to end a depressed suffering?! I am asking about the most cutting edge treatment for depression

Oct 17, 2019 · Dealing with resentments in Depression & Anxiety

Here I am seeking help. I am depressed. For religious purposes, I am not allowed to become angry at others etc; I have to be highly polite to them even if they are not so to me.
The question is: what does psychology say about a resentment: should I suppress it or disclose it?
I have tried to disclose it in the past. It was terrible. Now I ignore it and move on. It is highly amazing.
However, on Sunday I had a dispute with someone. I was truly stressed out. What I felt is the desire to revenge all those around who has hurt me in the past! This is the problem with suppression ! It is really terrible once the thing is out of your control!! I hade a stressful week. And I felt the revenge desire again and again. In the past, I used to meditate and ignore the resentments. Once I really rarely become stressed out, I feel the desire to go to that person and open an old dispute to revenge!
So what should I do? What is the psychological perception of this matter? And also do not forget what my religion says about being angry etc. what I am seeking is a comfortable solution both for short term and long term.
