Sep 22, 2016 · Living with a spouse with mental health issues in Mental Health

I think the advice given is very good. I would like to add the addition of a support group-one for the person who is depressed and the other for the caregiver(s). This has worked wonders for me. When I was very ill I went with my mother. She got as much out of it as I did.

Good luck!

Jul 27, 2016 · Seroquel for anxiety, social anxiety & PTSD in Depression & Anxiety

I am on 300 mg of Seroquel as an anti-psychotic. I have been on it a couple of years. I have gained a lot of wt-about 40 pds. I have just started with weight watchers but I am hungry all the time. I am also on trazodone and lithium which also cause wt gain. Tomorrow I am going to my dr and I am going to ask her to gradually get me down to 25 mg of Seroquel. My friends tell me not to do it because I am so stable but I just can’t stand this constant wt gain. I never thought I would weigh this much.

Jun 23, 2016 · Skin panic attacks and PTSD? in Mental Health

I have bipolar disorder. In the last month I started get eczema. It is
extremely itchy and there is no cure for it. It is on my face. I don’t know
if what you have is eczema or not. I put a cream on it every night that my
nurse practioner recommended. Keep us posted on how you are doing.

May 25, 2016 · Do you use your anxiety in a productive fashion? in Depression & Anxiety

I know what you mean. I depend on klonopin in the morning to get me
through. My doctor just gave me extra in case I need it. I have been on it
for years and it helps. I tried getting off it recently and I had to get
back on it,

It’s hard to figure ways to use your anxiety productively. I have social
and general anxiety. I have a lot of trouble being around people even
family. I worry for months about upcoming events like Christmas.

If anyone has any help pls let us know. I cannot afford a therapist.

Thanks,

May 13, 2016 · Side-effects of Welbutrin discontinuation? in Depression & Anxiety

I have ptsd and severe anxiety. I was raped 3 times. I am so frightened of
my neighbor upstairs that I am afraid to move about my apt. I also have
agoraphobia, staying in the house for days and weeks. It is difficult to
get treatment, especially if you are poor.

I have been to a clinic and they are going to set up an appt for a
therapist to come to the house.

Hang in there and good luck.

May 5, 2016 · I have been on so many antidepressants over the past 35 years in Depression & Anxiety

I too have tried just about any anti-depressant out there since the age of 13. I can say I most always hold on to hope for the present and future for new developments. Today I read about keratine again which is being researched. It works in hours or 1 day to relieve depression not like the 10 weeks it can take for some antidepressants. I also use alternative therapies like mindfulness and music therapy. I sit under a sum lamp daily which my dr also believes helps.

Hang in there and pls stay connected.

Apr 3, 2016 · Seroquel for anxiety, social anxiety & PTSD in Depression & Anxiety

I have been on Seroquel XR for anxiety and depression for about a year. I
just started going to a new dr and we are going to try Latuda because I
have been very depressed and anxious for the last 4 months.

My last dr told me I was on Seroquel for bipolar depression. I am bipolar.
I didn’t know it was also good for anxiety.

Good luck!
