What antidepressant is safe in pregnancy?  My depression is bad, not to mention my panic attacks.

None: Panic attacks are caused by poor oxidation in brain tissue and it is an excellent indicator of poor diet, especially all the sweet "junk". There is no time in a woman's life when diet is more important and you need better vitamin supplements, particularly b complex. ...Read more

Feeling depressed towards the end of my pregnancy now after trying to deal with anxiety and panic attacks. Doing therapy. Am i hurting my baby?

Feeling depressed towards the end of my pregnancy now after trying to deal with anxiety and panic attacks. Doing therapy. Am i hurting my baby?

Also try relaxation: I understand you must be very worried about your mood changes. It would be more likely the baby might suffer more with some medications. So, you have made a good decision. I would advise to try some Cognitive Behavio Therapy, with emphasis on learning how to relax and positive thinking. The welcoming of your child should be a great motivation to to give up. I am glad you agreed to be in therapy. ...Read more

What's safe during pregnancy to take to help with anxiety/depression and panic attack that cause blackouts/rage/shock.?

What's safe during pregnancy to take to help with anxiety/depression and panic attack that cause blackouts/rage/shock.?

Psychiatry eval.: I must disagree with my colleagues around this specific question. One has to balance the danger from anxiety/depression/blackouts/rage/shock and medication side effects during pregnancy. There are meds that are relatively safe to take, but do have some risks. Please seek a qualified psychiatry evaluation to weigh the risks/benefits of treatment with medication. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I am gluten intolerant (self diagnosed). Is it possible to have panic attacks, anxiety, and depression from consuming gluten?

I am gluten intolerant (self diagnosed).  Is it possible to have panic attacks, anxiety, and depression from consuming gluten?

Doubtful: True gluten intolerance is rare and self diagnosis is unreliable. There is no proven true link between gluten ingestion and psychiatric symptoms. I suggest you read the Consumer's Digest recent issue devoted to gluten. It's easy to understand and up to date but if you're caught up in the gluten fad/frenzy you might not like the conclusions. ...Read more

Can internet porn trigger depression?I haven't watch for 4 months, but I'm still semi-depressed, but my panic attacks are gone. Is it normal to watch?

Trigger?: Unfortunately, depression is not "caused" by anything we know of, depite many associations and correlations. The best causation appears to be at the molecular level, particularly in the production and transport of selected intracellular proteins (CREP, etc). Many men watch porn. Porn is probably not going to be championed as the highlight of the human experience / civilization. Help is there. ...Read more

Nerves too sensitized to take a shower or exercise, messages, listen to music. These activities spur acute panic attacks. No phobias. Is this depression

Panic: Most people who experience panic attacks are hypersensitive to sensations/activities/food & drinks that mimic panic sensations such as hot showers, caffeine, vigorous exercise etc. This is more symptomatic of anxiety and panic, not depression. Cognitive behavioral therapy is meant to break the association between thoughts, panic (fear response), and physical sensations that we all experience. ...Read more
