I am thrown back in to depression. Only change has been re-starting reglan. I was off the reglan due to possible side effect of depression.
Thanks for listening.

That's not too surprising, since Reglan can cause mild to severe depression. There are other similar meds that may not have that effect. So take heart, it is probably "just" the med. But of course, call your doctor and let them know, right away!

Looks like managing multiple diseases is a major issue. On top of the medications, there are severe interactions with stuff like coffee, soda, alcohol, etc. These interactions are individualized. Need to be super men/women to manage it.

I'm so sorry you are dealing with depression from it. I too have been battling moderate depression and tomorrow I go to my quarterly apt with my rheumatologist doctor. I plan on talking to her about it but I really don't want to have to go on another medication if I don't have to but I also don't want to have try and battle depression by mself either. My son just left for over seas military duty and I know the worrying about that is going to be hard enough for me and will add to the depression even more.
Good luck to you and warm hugs.
