Does anybody know of AFFORDABLE psychiatrists or psychologists in the cape town area

My medical does not cover it and so far the rates I have seen are ridiculously expensive.

Can anyone help or also have this happen?

I take 60mg Cymbalta and 10mg Valium and go to sleep 11pm and Up again at 2am or 3am from nightmares. Never know when it will happen. Comes out of no where.
Could happen 2 or 3 days in a row or not again for 2 or 3 weeks...

What helps your depression and anxiety?

Hi all. I'm looking for different approaches to start to recover from all this. I don't drink caffeine anymore and I don't eat sweets. I try to take a 45 minute walk five times a day. I use lavender oil and stress relief body spray. I'm constantly with my family. I try to get enough sleep. I see a therapist but all that really does is have somebody listen to me without advice. What else can I try? Thank you

Does your body ache?

Does anyone have pain when they are stressed or tired? I am stressed out about my son and I've noticed lately that my shoulder and neck hurt. I work out 6 days a week and I strech really good. I've had this before but I realized it gets worse with stress. I'm also tired and having some trouble sleeping due to the stress. Lately my back has been hurting as well. I think they are connected. I just want to see if anyone else goes through this and what if anything helps you out.

Hi all.
I am on quetiapine for my depression. It is the only drug I take.
I went to the doctor a few months ago to ask for anti-anxiety medicine when I was finding it hard to cope. He gave me a prescription for something, and when I questioned him, he said it was OK to take with quetiapine.
Fastforward 10 minutes... I am LITERALLY handing over the prescription to the chemist and he rings my phone. Tells me not to give it to the chemist (I grabbed it back from a… read more
