I've been prescribed Prozac 20 mg by my psychiatric doctor
I've been prescribed Prozac 20 mg by my psychiatric doctor to lower my sex drive and so far it's been 11 days on fluoxetine 20 mg capsules once every morning the only thing I noticed is that it made me less afraid to do certain stuff in public like eat, spit, sing out loud etc. but haven't really do anything to my sex drive like I'm still feeling attractions to females and a shy/nervous around them. I take it around 9:00 am it doesn't kick in till about 4:00 pm and it goes away by 8:00 pm and @ 8:00 pm is the time when I need it the most because my attraction to females make me want to commit suicide because I can't have the once I want, and today I took it and didn't feel anything it felt like it didn't do nothing today just as it felt for the first 4 days of taking it like it wasn't doing anything. It still doesn't make me less attracted to females just less distracted by them. I really need help to get rid of this sex drive. Today I went right back to square one and felt horrible
I have a ADHD and bipolar 19 year old that is a musician and
I have a ADHD and bipolar 19 year old that is a musician and living at home. Her mood is all over the place. She is rude, disrespectful and can't close doors, cabinets or lights off, clean up after herself or lock the house when she leaves. She wants to do the very few chores we ask her to do with a "I will, later" they don't get done until day 3 after several times attempting to work with her. She parties and is making careless choices sexually. My husband and I are so done with her behavior which has gotten better than when she was 13 but she is so hard to live with. Help!!JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?Customer: yes, for years. she was on ADHD drugs and then had her brain scan by Dr. Amen because dr. concerned about combining the adhd drugs and not covering her with mood stabilizer since I had a schizophic brother. She has been on vyvance and Lamtical for several years. She has gotten much better than when she was 13 but she is so hard to live with and everyone in our home feels that way and their are 5 of us. We have tried just about every thing. She parties and is making unsafe choices in her sexual choices.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?Customer: I have also dealt with a long term serious disease since she was I years old.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Psychologist about your situation and then connect you two.
I'm asking about my 86-year old mother. She has been very
Hello. This is Sharon and I'm asking about my 86-year old mother. She has been very active and very mobile until about a year ago. She took couple of falls, breaking her wrist, hitting her head, and breaking an ankle. As a result she began to become inactive.Now, she can barely walk, even with a walker. She's having much difficulty dressing herself and problems with movement in general. She is having a problem with incontinence. It takes a very long time to get from point A to point B and sometimes she literally can't get her feet to face forward and propel herself.I believe she is very, very depressed ... even though she doesn't cry, she feels defeated.... and believes she can't be helped. She takes a low dose of Zoloft and Gabapentin at bedtime.My questions are:1) Could she be so clinically depressed that she can't walk, roll over in bed, move with acceptable speed with any motor task? If so, what can be done?2) Also, a few years ago, she had a couple of TIA's and a blood clot in her leg. She began taking the blood thinner that must be monitored monthly. Could she be having additional TIA's that would cause any of this?3) I don't want her physical problems to be the main focus if she could be suffering with extreme depression issues.Thank you for your input.

I am receiving ECT (Electroconvulsive Therapy) at this time
I am receiving ECT (Electroconvulsive Therapy) at this time to treat my depression. I am unable to take any of the antidepressant medications because my body cannot tolerate the side effects of these medicines. Unfortunately, now I seem to be having a reaction after my ECT treatments. I am experiencing i.e., itching, skin feeling tight, feeling like my tongue and lips are swollen and flashing of my entire body both internally and externally that can last for hours or days. At first I believed it was from the anesthesia but the anesthesiologist says, “that if it was the anesthetic it would have happen right away because it only has a half-life of 8 minutes.” The side effects usually don't start until late the night of the treatment or early the next morning. I was given a prescription for Vistaril 25mg 3 X a day. It did not help. The psychiatrist I was seeing gave me a prescription for Vistaril for 50mg (for other reasons) with instructions to take two at night before bedtime which I did last night 4-7-15 and was able to sleep the night through. My last ECT treatment was Monday 4-5-15 and I woke up Tuesday mornings experiencing the same side effects. I woke up today Wednesday morning experiencing the itching only in feeling my tongue was swollen. I'm also taking some Benadryl when it really gets bad. None of this has helped.Each time I get a treatment the symptoms or reactions get worse. I am worried about what might happen next. I was wondering if the reactions could be triggered by the treatment itself. I have had 7 treatments so far and they estimate 12 treatments will be needed. ETC staff cannot be reached. Do you have any ideas that might help?I have experienced hives before but nothing like this.

Ive suffered years of OCD which seems to prevent me from doing
I've suffered years of OCD which seems to prevent me from doing so much, had failed therapy sessions, failed meds plus depression.I also have Anorexia which although I do have control of the thoughts in my head are constant. I feel like I'm in hell & dont see much to look forward to. Last year I took an OD but although I know that wasnt the right way to go about it I just hate living like this and desperate to get out of this mess.My reason for messaging is I've been looking into Deep Brain Stimulatiom, is this a last hope? Does it work? Is it availble on nhs?
