Hi, that 10 yr comment hit me. I went 10 long years with depression back in 1991 and finally in 2002, got on descciated thyroid support and that depression lifted pretty quickly. I went 10 yrs with anti depressant drugs and my gut kept telling me it was a sluggish thyroid...but the doctors lab numbers told him and me I was normal...not so as I know now years later. Later in 2006 I was feeling a lowness and it was Vit D deficiency.

There is help out there, seek it.

Hello and welcome to the NeuroTalk Support Groups.

I'm not sure if you meant to say that you weren't diagnosed.

I wonder if you've seen your general practitioner or a psychologist at all over the 10 years about the anxiety and depression.

You also mention that you feel worse once a year. Have you been able to pinpoint any reason that might happen.

I'm sorry you have such serious concerns about your family. Are your anxiety and depression affecting your work situation?

Yes it does effect my work I feel weak and achy and headaches. It is all I can focus on when I'm going threw it very weird I'll get in a good mood and then think y bother I'm just going to feel like this agin. And scary part is I don't know what it is first happens with a panic attack when in was about 22. I love my family and job just worry about losing them cause I can't get over this but I always do.

Hi ddaniel,

This really is something you need to speak to your GP about and perhaps look into Therapy.

When I read that you suffer at this time every year my mind immediately went to SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder:

http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Seasona...roduction.aspx.

This could be something worth reading up on to see whether the symptoms fit. At least then you will have a starting point.

Your Anxiety could well be linked to your Depression, but that, too, does need addressing by a Professional. We can talk about it here, and suggest Meditative Practices, breathing techniques, etc at the same time as an aid to the help you are getting in the Real World. Of course, we are here for you instantaneously, but we can only offer opinions based on our own experiences.

Stay calm, try not to worry.

Dave.

If it was me I'd probably start by going back to whomever is prescribing the 20mg Fluoxetine (Prozac). They must have diagnosed you with something to prescribe it although they've maybe not talked with you about their reasons. Not sure how long you've been on that dose. It may not suit you although it is a fairly low dose.

Hi ddaniel

Welcome to NeuroTalk .

I endorse what Dave wrote (I live with Major Depressive Disorder). In my experience a combination of medication (from my psychiatrist) and "talk-therapy" (from my clinical psychologist) has been more helpful than either in isolation.

I also agree with Lara about Prozac. Often matching the "right" anti-depressant to the "right" person is a matter of trial and error. If anti-depressant medication is indicated for you (this might not be the case), then going back to your GP to discuss trying something else with a different pharmacology is worth considering.

All the best.

I also agree getting into some talk therapy. Got to work to let go of your thoughts. We so often worry about something that never happens and I know that one. Learning meditation and doing it can also do wonders, it's free and one can do it laying down if one wants to.

The drug Prozac is one of the drugs that contains fluoride which is also in abx drugs like cipro, levaquin and that class. We just talked about those drugs and all the side effects. Did you read up on the possible side effects of the drug?

I tried prozac back in 1991 and it did nothing for me...that's when I first got so depressed and suspected thyroid which is was for me. Let go...
