Before this i already have be clinically diagnosed have major depressive disorders with panic disorders, doctor provide some medication which is alprazolam, deslefaxine and mirtazapine,but on last two weeks i start new treatment due to my abdominal pain,so o&g specialist started provide me with another medication which desogestrel 150,but after taking this medication i realized my depression getting worst,i start having suicidal thoughts again,but i need to clarify that before i take this hormones pills my mental health state already not stable but after start this medication (desogestrel) it be getting worst… firstly I don’t know which one medication i need to take since too much medicine i need to take,and due to some problem i just take alprazolam to make me sleep and desogestrel to reduce my pain (even though i think my symptoms of abdominal pain getting worst)… I don’t know what i should do…my appointment with o&g specialist on this end of August…and my appointment with psychiatrist on this end of May (and i still not sure can go or not due to some unavoidable reasons)… i really don’t know what i can do… everything can happen if i wait till August for o&g appointment,and i know i can’t stop both medication for mdd and hormones pills without permission for both doctor…since i go to two different hospital for mdd and o&g I think maybe have little misunderstanding,maybe my o&g doctor though my depression getting better since I told him before i stop taking my antidepressants (i only take alprazolam but i don’t take mirtazapine and deslefaxine) but I stop without doctor’s permission… I can’t take too much medicine in one time…i already tried it before but end up I will vomit back…what i can do to settle down my problem

Hello, and thank you for contacting us

Get a good rest with a restful sleep.

We truly understand your concern with regard to your current condition. However, our views would only reflect based on the description that you have brought forth into the forum.

Anxiety dan depression are two common symptoms of a psychiatrical disorder that (more often than not) correlates to one another. However, in response to your problem, thorough history taking and (if needed) examination must be done to have a better working diagnosis - to ensure if any medication or therapy is currently needed. In addition, treatment for such conditions is usually tailored specifically to each individual. Therefore we couldn’t guarantee any medication will be prescribed prior to proper consultation

Hence I urged you to have the courage to talk to the people you trust the most, to mediate the depression as early as possible. You can also try to contact a verified organization called Befrienders to help you manage these issues before getting formal help from your nearby clinic or hospitals.

In the meantime our Care Consultants will be in touch with you privately to assist you and provide you with more in-depth options regarding your fathers’ current health.

With that being said we encourage you to consult with the nearest clinic or hospital in your area. In addition you can also talk directly to our doctors by using this link. (DoctorOnCall) Thank you.
