    nephew wants to die

    My nephew cannot get enough help from the VA for bipolar, depression, anxiety, seizures & alcoholism. He said he wants to die. They just give him pills and detox him. He needs therapy or a psychiatrist long term. He has asked for help for years. His Mom is trying to see he gets help but the VA does not care. Its been 6+ years and they didn't even figure out he was bipolar until this year. Depression is an illness like any other disease. The doctor this week walked out of the appointment and....

    Medication question

    So I am on two medications for anxiety (propranolol and bupropion) and I usually take them at the same time every morning around 9. Today I forgot to take them and took them several hours later and I feel a bit strange and am wondering if it’s because my body is used to taking them earlier. I am feeling very jittery and having bad stomach problems as well as fatigue. Could this be due to not taking my medication at the normal time? I just feel very strange and am unsure why and I don’t know when....

    Anxiety and hearth health

    Can anxiety feel like you have heart issues? I’ve done multiple EKG’s in the past, with most of them reading “normal”. But a couple of them read LVH. I’ve done a little research, and what I gained was that LVH is basically a enlarged valve. I followed up and did a ultrasound of my heart, and everything came back as normal. A couple things worry me though. 1- my blood pressure sometimes spikes to 140/73. I know the bottom number is good, but the top number is not. However I am always extremely nervous....

    Anxiety treatment

    Can panic attacks be treated with will power? Should a person with anxiety and a history of severe panic attacks be expected to attend a family event where an unrelated person will be in attendance when that person is a trigger for panic attacks? Just the mention of that person triggers flashbacks. Even though I was paying the entire cost of the event, I was told I was being controlling (even though my ONLY request was that that person not be there). I was told that I was just weak willed and if....

    Is it safe to take Propranolol for one day?

    Hi all, I was prescribed Propranolol from my doctor a few months back when going through an anxious time. I suffer with mild to severe anxiety from time to time. I initially was advised to take 10mg morning and night. I stopped taking this eventually as I felt more calm and the stressful events in my life calmed down. Today I had a business presentation to do for a client and I suffer very badly with speaking infront of people to the point where I can't physically function! I therefore took a....

    Short term memory loss, problem leaning new information or remembering details

    I have depression, anxiety and stress. I have problem concentrating, focusing, recalling details and leaning new information. And sometimes my brain becomes blank. For example I was at school, teacher asked me why are you late today? I wanted to replay, but there were nothing in my brain. I kept thinking of finding excuses but I just couldn't even any fake or simple ones. That's the reason I can't go to school anymore, because they ask question and I can't answer, even the simplest....

    Fluoxetine and Withdrawal Symptoms

    I have been on Fluoxetine (20 mg) and for a little over a year and recently went off "cold turkey", all in its been about 4 weeks or so. I work with a therapist regularly and we have been monitoring my mood, feelings, symptoms. Its been about 2 weeks since i have seen her and my feelings have been amped up. Work has been very stressful and this past week was the 10 anniversary of my Mothers passing. I am weepy, slightly anxious, and having a hard time of letting stuff go- slightly obsessing....

    Worried about psychiatric meds-combination in high doses

    My brother recently committed suicide after a long battle with bipolar disorder. I went through his home and did an inventory of his current medications. He had been prescribed bupropion (450 mg/day), gabapentin (1800 mg/day), lamotrigine (300 mg/day), lithium (900 mg/day), and sertraline (200 mg/day). All of the medications had been prescribed by the same doctor within three months of his death. He had been feeling unusually tired and disoriented in the weeks before he died. I know some of these....
