Customer Question
I'm 46 years old recently...
I'm 46 years old recently diagnosed with diabetes (now under control). I was diagnosed bipolar about 1yr and latter when my diabetes was put in control I no longer felt the rages but I still feel terribly anxious and if not up at the crack of dawn will lay in bed all day. On my days off I sit in front of the computer surfing ebay,craigslist and amazon for junk to buy. I own my own business and am responsible for the maintanence but just can't get my rear out of the house, same goes for my bills,taxes and any responsibillities. I fear no reprecusions or penalty. I have no drive or ambition or passion. I used to play baseball 2-3 times a week now I find ways to tell the guys I can't be there even though I just drive around in my car until the game would be over......? I can't figure it out :( I don't care to talk to anyone, which has ruined my relationship with my teenage children,I communicate to them thru my wife,which I see as a friend and advisary at the same time,

benazepril hcl 10mg,metformin hcl 500mg & simvastatin 20mg and an 80mg asprin. no psychiatrist.
Health Professional: Dr. Singh, Doctor replied 8 years ago
Your symptoms indicate a possibility of depression, which can be associated with Bipolar disorder. I think you will greatly benefit from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Also SSRI medications like Fluoxitine can help control your symptoms. Since your condition is affecting your relationships and family life, you should strongly consider therapy. I would recommend seeing a psychiatrist soon for evaluation.
Regards.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
