What is the best anti-depression and calmative drug?

What is the best anti-depression and calmative drug?

No drug is "best": There are several antidepressants and even more anti-anxiety drugs available. The "best" for one person may not be the best for another. Doctors select treatments based on a person's unique symptom profile, past experience with medications, other medical issues they may have, and so forth. If one drug were always the best, then everyone would get that one. It doesn't work that way.

He is having a sickle cell blood and urine test and he smokes marijuana, will they detect it? He is being calm about it but he is my best friend.

It will show: If he is a current user the urine test will show it. The drug attaches to fat cells in the tissue and gradually leaks out in pee over an extended period. Regular or heavy use can show up in pee for a month or more. He may be passive about the issue as a symptom of long term use.

Recognizing Control: I am reminded of the serenity prayer often recited at 12-step meetings, "god grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference". Attributed to theologian reinhold niebuhr. It is difficult to remain calm when one tries to control something uncontrollable. Take a deep look inside and see what you can and can't control.

Calm: One simple tip- count to ten before acting on the urge to impulsively harm someone physically or emotionally. Reduce anger by deep breathing. Breath in deeply & slowly through the nostrils.

How can I calm down without the use of meds.

How can I calm down without the use of meds.

Be Calm: Many things help to calm us. Exercise relaxes muscles, aids blood flow, and improves body image as does yoga. Keeping awareness grounded in the present helps because anxiety exists mainly in apprehensions about the future. Facing unpleasantness directly, talking to calm people, fixing broken things, and following routines all create a sense of well-being.
