In reply to dopamine and crying...CAM maybe?, posted by Paige on May 18, 2001, at 18:26:17

Hi Paige,

I have been told, more times than I can count by doctors, that therapy should also be included with any type of medications for mood enhancement. Or else they will just not work right. Basically, what I have been told, is that the medications are just a tool to help along with the therapy.

There have got to be reasons for your crying. You are suffering perhaps and sometimes we do not realize it when we are suffering/hurting. Sometimes we repress feelings because they are so unpleasant to deal with. This is what needs to be addressed. Perhaps changing the medication would also help. Especially if you feel it is making you cry more.

Here are a few suggestions of things you can do to help yourself along in this process:
1)Exercise (yoga,aerobics, etc..something with other people around...somewhere where you feel comfortable) Linda Evans fitness centers are located everywhere and they are established ONLY for women. People go in sweats and t-shirts and it is a very comfortable environment. They have yoga,pilates,etc...all of which stetch the muscles, increase breathing and oxygen to the brain...which, I promise, you will find incredibly helpful. Scientifically proven to help with depression, etc..

2- Hypnosis tapes. Self hypnosis tapes. There is a website that has a couple of hundered tapes. The guy who owns this company was on the news with Tom Brokaw about the powerful effects of his tapes. The site is

3- Diet; caffein,sugar,preservatives are all things that, when eliminated or reduced, help tremendously.

- remember that our brains function off of everything we do to our bodies and everything we put into them. So, the better we can do for our bodies, the better we do for our brains. Very logical. And of course with the therapy to focus on the underlying issues that are causing you to cry so much.

3- see if there is a genetic history of depression in your family. If not, then even more of a reason to figure focus on you and what pain you may have. Again, sometimes we do not even realize what/when/why things bother us. But our silly brains to and then things go haywire. We sometimes are almost forced to deal with issues by our bodies/brains reactions.

I guess that is it for now. I hope this helps.

Have a nice weekend!
