Jan 28, 2012 · anti-depressant and sexual drive in Women's Health

I have been on celexa for about 2 years now to help control my anxiety. It has helped my anxiety but I’m just emotionless now. I kept on it because it did atleast help me with the anxiety. However, I have noticed that my sexual drive is almost obsolete and I’m sure its affecting my husband. I asked my doctor and he switched me to cymbalta which pretty much made me feel the same way..no sexual drive. Anyone have any suggestions/answers?

i think you should go to the er if you feel that you are suicidal. noone wants to lose you in their lives. you ARE an important person and there is help out there for you. sometimes it does take a while for the medications to kick in so that might be the case as well. try to get a therapist as well. anything that you think would help, don’t give up!!!

mesalamine is a anti-inflammatory and budesonide in a corticosteroid also used to cancer pts that suppresses my immune system. i really haven’t been myself as well, totally different and it sucks big time! i stay away from tomato and cream based foods, don’t eat much dairy, no spicey foods, i pretty much eat nothing, like a damn bird i have lost ten pounds already have thrown up since day one, its depressing! haha, the meds that im on though dont seem to help alot, i meet with my doctor this week and maybe will change them idk? your fatigue sounds horrible, i couldn’t imagine, mine surely isn’t that bad, hope you find something out there that can help!

Jan 13, 2012 · Crohn's Disease - Do you have any tips? in Digestive Health

I’m a 22 yr old female who was just diagnosed with Crohn’s after suffering for four years with horrible abdominal issues. My doctor is a trip and has lost her sympathy for patients. I’ve never been so depressed in my life and I would like to think that I have been through alot of hard times already. I stay away from dairy, tomato based foods, cream based foods, spicey foods, and really sugary foods. I throw up every day and have random bouts of diarrhea. The pain is mostly gone (thank goodness) but I’m on horribly expensive medication, that you would hope would be worth it (Mesalamine and Budesonide). I’m losing hope that one day I will be ok. I used to be a pretty positive fun person but this disease has ruined me. Please anyone give me input on what more I could do to keep my chin up……

Jan 13, 2012 · Crohn’s disease - nothing is working! in Digestive Health

i have crohn’s as well and was just recently diagnosed, im on corticosteriods and Mesalamine. it helps but not completely i also can barely eat anything, no dairy, tomato based foods, no spicy foods or cream based…i have lost weight to say the least, and its even effecting my work, i have been talked to by my manager for going home sick some days, life is definately different, i wouldn’t wish this disease upon my worst enemies, i pray that your son does not have to face tribulations of this disease!
