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!!!

Jan 28, 2012 · Family Medical Leave Act/Crohn's Disease in Digestive Health

I just graduated from college in August and received a job with my degree in healthcare. Therefore, it’s a new job and you always want to make a great impression. Well, around the beginning of December I started to become very sick and a couple days (only 4) I ended up going home early from work. Every time I did though I atleast worked 4-5 hours and found another person to fill in for me. Of course I only left because I was really ill with vomiting and diarrhea. Noone wants to be at work when you have those symptoms. I was diagnosed in January with Crohn’s Disease. However, because of going home early because I was sick those couple of day my boss decided to be a jerk and write me up, which I took completely person as a dig at my character. I’m not one to just go home from work for the heck of it. I talked to Human Resources to see if I could get some kind of help as far as the Family Medical Leave Act. They stated I don’t qualify until after a year of employment and there was nothing else I could do. I am still in the flare up so I have to suffer at work and if I even call in once during the next six months I will get written up and then fired. Is this even legal? I feel so mistreated and alone. My boss doesn’t understand and I have even tried to explain it to him but he needs a concrete “plan”. There is no plan as to when I will get better. It’s random. I will feel totally fine and the next hour I could be throwing up and having diarrhea. Someone help!!!!!! This isn’t fair, I’m afraid of losing my job and I just started my career!

Jan 16, 2012 · Crohn's+6-MP+Fatigue in Digestive Health

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!
