Why doa  lot of people take their inhaler out of sight of people, or run to the toilet and take it there?

Embarrassment: Few people are proud of, nor want to p;ublicly advertise their illnesses. Many asthmatics feel that way and will go out of the room to do the inhaling. And it does appear a little "gross" the way it is done. ...Read more

I might have bipolar disorder. What are some symptoms of it and what do to get rid of the down side and keep the happy?

No luck charlie: Sorry every surfer must crash against the shore. The higher the highs, the lower the lows. They are part and parcel of the same disorder. Preventing the highs prevents the lows for the most part. As someone ages untreated the highs get fewer and the lows longer. This is why early treatment is so important. Good treatment keeps you happy but not high. ...Read more

Try again: There are many antihypertensives most of which will not affect your mental function. In addition there are some very serious dietary measures you can try as well. A BP of 160/100 at 49 yo is not something to just blow off as you are at significant risk for future serious health issues. See a cardiologist or nephrologist for evaluation. Reduce the sodium in your diet and exercise regularly. ...Read more

What is the safest anti anxiety medication with the least amount of side effects? (I have tried exercise, cbt, counselling etc so do not suggest these

Need both approaches: SSRi's with the fewest drug interactions, which would be probably Zoloft (sertraline) and Celexa; not addictive and few side effects too. Everyone responds differently, an individual approach is needed. Non-drug treatments for anxiety are important to continue also, as medication do not cure anxiety and are less effective if not getting good sleep, proper nutrition, insight into your anxiety and exercise. ...Read more

One of my worst side effects of depression is being extra sleepy. I always feel sluggish. Anything i can do to help stop this? Any books you rec?

Medication issue: You may have a "vegetative" depression, which involves lethargy. In addition, the meds you're on are morphine and alprazolam, both of which are sedating. I suggest visiting a psychiatrist and perhaps getting an rx for something like wellbutrin, (bupropion) an anti-depressant with a more activating effect. In addition, i recommend talking to a therapist to determine other possible causes. ...Read more
