Dont know: Too many questions which cannot be answered in this format. I'd suggest that you'd be screened for sleep disorders which can impair memory.

A 41-year-old member asked:

If I have chronic depression and severe sleep problems, can I take trazodone or remeron (mirtazapine) to help? Which is better?

Depends: Trazodone is often used to help people sleep but it is a very weak antidepressant. Remeron (mirtazapine) is a much more effective antidepressant. Make sure your diagnosis is correct, though. Bipolar depression frequently causes severe sleep problems and requires different treatment. A psychiatrist or family physician with an interest in psychiatry can help you sort this out.

Biofeedback - which is more accurate for generalized anxiety, galvanic skin response or heart rate variability?

HRV: I can speak for heart rate variability and say that it is an accurate and powerful way to assess biofeedback. We have used hrv based devices in our clinic with good response.
Dr. Cecilia Alailima
General Practice 33 years experience
I agree. We find HRV and EEG-biofeedback are the most effective type of biofeedback used to manage anxiety in our clinic with very good long-term outcomes. Talk therapy is still very important to explore underlying issues or possible trauma to insure the client develops insight on how anxiety can generalize and good coping skills so future events don't re-trigger an abnormal anxiety response.

Can one time moderate use of cocaine lead to permanent brain damage, memory problems or cognitive impairment?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Pamela Pappas
Psychiatry 42 years experience
Death = permanent: In some, the first use of Cocaine causes death, which would be permanent brain damage or impairment. Not to mention heart attacks, respiratory failure, strokes, or seizures. In the brain alone, Cocaine is a very strong CNS stimulant that stops Dopamine from being recycled -- making it build up and disrupt normal neuronal communication. If you're dead, the long-term brain changes don't matter.

No: That could be a sign of food allergy or intolerance. You should keep a food diary of which foods cause this reaction, then sit down with an allergist to review your symptoms and come up with an evaluation plan.
