Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Right For You?

If you have certain disorders or illnesses, you want to make sure you’re treated well. You also want to make sure your symptoms are well understood and that the best possible options are always provided to you. Mango Clinic Miami is able to assist you with a wide variety of health services, including weight loss, sexual dysfunction, and anxiety. Featuring a staff of professional physicians, we are able to help you both in person and at home, thanks to the benefits of telehealth communication. If you happen to have certain women’s health issues, our doctors can help you understand your symptoms and treatment options. In this article, we would like to discuss hormone replacement therapy and help you understand whether the therapy is right for you. 

 

Menopause hits women eventually, and the effects can range in both what they are and their intensity. Hot flashes are among the most common of side-effects; these can last for seconds or even minutes and can include redness of skin and sweating. Depending on the age of a woman, the extremity and intensity of the symptoms can vary. Moreover, some of these symptoms can be avoided and combated, depending on age and whether or not you have had your ovaries removed.Mango Medical Weight Loss Clinic in Miami

 

Since these effects can be severely problematic, as well as detrimental to one’s normal way of life, there exist ways to take care of the symptoms of menopause. Depending on circumstances, you may not actually have to encounter the common problems associated with menopause. In fact, you have to maintain a healthy lifestyle if you’re in your mid-40s and are not bothered by the traditional side-effects so often associated. However, you may want to look into something if you’re a bit older and these symptoms are bothering you. Even if you have yet to experience full-blown menopause, taking certain medication can prove to be beneficial.

 

One of the most well-known and effective forms of treatment for menopause is hormone replacement. At its core, hormone replacement therapy does exactly what it says in its name: it provides synthetic hormone replacements that the body is no longer creating due to menopause. It’s a relatively common form of treatment and has been shown to be very helpful for many who suffer from the side-effects of menopause. It can even prevent bone loss in some patients, which is helpful since some patients might have reduced bone mass, which makes menopause that much harder to deal with.

 

Of course, whether hormone replacement therapy is right for you depends on many factors. Your age and general health are major factors that can determine whether you can take this type of medication. If you have had any risk of heart disease or cancer, it is generally recommended that you do not take any form of hormone replacement therapy. This is because hormone therapy can actually increase the risk of having heart disease and cancer, as well as blood clots and strokes. One’s own medical conditions and medical history can contribute towards these risks; dosage size can also increase one’s risk.

 

These risks are a major reason why hormone replacement therapy is often paired with progesterone. Unless you had your uterus removed, taking just estrogen on its own can cause serious health problems which are counterbalanced by progesterone. Those who do not take progesterone may experience a different variety of side-effects and a different rate of risks. As always, it is recommended that you speak with your doctor as to whether hormone replacement therapy is the best option for you.

 

Types Of Hormone Replacement Therapy

 

HRT for menopause
Which type of Hormone Replacement Therapy is right for you?

There exist two main types of hormone replacement therapy: systemic estrogen and low-dose vaginal products.

 

Systemic estrogen is the most basic and common form of hormone replacements available to women for treating menopause. A versatile drug, it can be taken as a pill, patch, spray, cream, or gel, with each type being recommended depending on each person’s individual circumstance. Of important note, systemic estrogen not only takes care of hot flashes, but also vaginal symptoms, such as dryness, itchiness, and discomfort.

 

Low-dose vaginal products of estrogen are much more specific in their mission. While not being able to help with some of the most common symptoms of menopause (mainly hot flashes and night sweats), these low-dose products target vaginal symptoms while being less absorbent to the body. These products can be used as a cream, tablet, or a ring.

Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

 

Treating and protecting against the most well-known symptoms may be enough, but it turns out hormone therapy can also help you against other ailments. The risk for different types of cancer, such as colon cancer, can be reduced with the help of combined hormone replacement products. Most notably, hormone replacement therapy can help with protecting the body against osteoporosis; this is a disease that weakens the bones by reducing their mass. Additionally, if you have had your uterus removed, you can take hormone replacements without the need of progesterone.

Fillers.jpg

Mango Clinic services people all across the country in a variety of ways related to their health. Whether you need an emotional support animal letter or are looking to lose weight, our clinic and staff of physicians can assist you in making the right choices for you in the best possible way. As we are launching our cosmetic services, we would like to discuss how dermal fillers can benefit you and everything you need to know about the fillers.

For some, the wrinkles around their face are less than attractive; for others, muscle spasms of different types prevent them from living their best life. Both lines and spasms can be taken care of with injectables, such as the world famous Botox. However, there is one other helpful type of injectable treatment, and that is dermal fillers.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a type of injectable treatment which literally “fills” up whichever part is receiving the injection. They can be made from different kinds of materials and applied to areas of the face, most notably the lips and cheeks.

For most people, the entire purpose behind being injected with dermal fillers is to make their lips or cheeks appear fuller. The biggest reason for these targeted injections is that the skin in the cheeks or lips is thin or becomes thin over time with age. Volume enhances the skin, wrinkles, lines around the mouth, and between the eyes become smoothed out.

We should make it clear that dermal fillers are not like Botox. Where a product like Botox is designed to freeze cells in the body for a few months, fillers are made of a material that adds more mass underneath the skin. Along with the different materials that can be used, dermal fillers are known to last for anywhere between six months to a whole year.

What Are Dermal Fillers Made Of?

Common Fillers
Most common dermal fillers.

Where Botox is made up of a safe-to-use version of the bacterial component botulinum toxin, dermal fillers are made up of many different materials that are used by different brands. These materials should be FDA approved, come from recognized brands, and be handled by licensed physicians.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the most popular and well-known material used for dermal fillers. It is a plasma substance, gooey, and gel-like, that is found naturally within the body; it keeps your skin feeling hydrated and full. Two of the biggest brands that use HA are Juvederm and Restylane, each with their own selection of branded products. The effects of HA can last anywhere between six and twelve months.

Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is similar to hyaluronic acid, in that they are both naturally occurring substances found within the body. CaHA is primarily located within the bones and is thicker than HA, as well as much smaller in its particle makeup. It can also last longer, typically for up to twelve months, and create smoother lines and wrinkles.

Among the stronger types of dermal fillers is Poly-L-lactic acid. This material’s primary purpose is to provide the body with collagen and thoroughly smooth out wrinkles. Its increased strength contributes to how long it can last; fillers made of Poly-L-lactic acid deliver results that last for over a year, even two years.

Even longer lasting are dermal fillers made up of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). When used for cosmetics, PMMA is in the form of microscopic balls that are injected and stay underneath the skin. Containing collagen, PMMA provides the skin with volume and support for many years. This is thanks to its ability to remain within the skin and provide a structure that sustains smoothness.

The only dermal filler procedure that also includes surgery is when you use fat from your own body as the material. While results can last much longer than others, the process is different than traditional injections, requiring much more care on the part of both the patient and the doctor performing the operation and injection.

What Can I Use Dermal Fillers For?

Various areas of your face could be enhanced by fillers.

For those simply wanting smoother and fuller skin, dermal fillers have proven themselves to be excellent options. You can get a smooth-skinned look without having to put your cells on ice for a short amount of time. Whichever type of filler you choose, it will feature a natural look and feel that is safe for your body.

As the types of fillers you can use vary, so do their uses. Around the lips and directly to the cheeks are among the most popular places. Around the eyes, underneath the chin, and even your hands are also options.

Getting into specifics, there are several things you can do with and around the cheeks. Enhancing the cheeks is likely what you want to do, but you can also fill in the nasolabial folds. This is an area that stretches from the nose to the lips on either side of your face; also known as smile or laugh lines, these areas can stretch and deepen over the years. The longevity of this type of injection can last for under or over a year, depending on the material.

How Do I Get Dermal Fillers?

Mango Clinic has licensed physicians who will be able to assess your individual needs and understand what you are interested in. Through careful evaluation, you will understand what sort of treatment is best for you, including what to expect and how the process will go.

Our Miami location serves people all across the metropolitan area, as well as people in other cities and states. We have a qualified staff of physicians who can assist you with getting the help you deserve, whether locally or over telehealth communication. And now, Mango Clinic is proud to announce that we can help patients who want to get Botox injections. Whether you know all about it or are new to the scene, it’s essential to know what those injections are, how they work, and how they can benefit you.

What Is Botox and How to get it done in Miami?

Botulinum
Botox may cause serious side effects which could be potentially life-threatening. Always consult a licensed medical professional before use.

Botox is the most popular and well-known brand name that botulinum toxin is known by. Also known as BTX, botulinum is a type of bacteria that has many uses in medicine. While there exist different types that are designated by letters, the ones that medical professionals use on patients is known as types A and B. Other types can be highly dangerous and deadly; this is why commercial Botox is a safer purified version of the bacteria, which also demonstrates how versatile it is.

Without getting too scientific, the said toxin essentially puts your cells on ice. It is injected in a part of your body (usually around your face, with the forehead being the most common one, as well as around the eyes and sometimes lips) and stops the cells which naturally cause wrinkles to stop reproducing.

What Can Botox Be Used For?

Since everyone ages, lines can form all up and down our bodies, especially our faces. Wrinkles form around our eyes, forehead, lips, and checks; this is due to the combination of age and activity since we are always moving parts of our face whether we realize it or not. Over time, all of this results in what we know as wrinkles, lines, and so on.

Botox injections allow for these lines and wrinkles to be smoothed out, as the cells that create those marks are relaxed and inactive for the time being. Thus your skin looks smoothed out and can appear to be untouched by the natural aging process. The injection results take a few days or so to show up, and they tend to last for a few months (anywhere in between 4 – 6 months), meaning you will need to get injected every few months if you want to maintain the appearance.

While botulinum toxin has a reputation for being used for cosmetic purposes, it is used for a wide variety of different reasons as well. For various kinds of muscle spasms and disorders, including ones relating to your eyes, jaw, and limbs, injecting Botox can be very helpful for taking care of symptoms. Botox can even be used for those with excessive sweat (aka hyperhidrosis), as the injection will be able to limit the sweat glands in question. This is especially the case when topical creams and other forms of medication do not work for you.

Getting the injections in Miami is going to depend on your personal aesthetic or medical needs since the reasons vary so widely. In cases of health, Botox can be a beneficial form of treatment. There are those who have specific muscle problems that can be treated with Botox. If you have soreness or chronic pain in your body, such as around the mouth, Botox can prove to be immensely helpful. The freezing of the cells that contribute to the pain or soreness will not be able to cause further problems for the individual as a result.

Of course, there are always the cosmetic reasons, which are among the most popular and well-known among those who know about Botox. Many who decide to get Botox do so to eliminate lines and wrinkles on their faces; there seems to be no hard age limit, either, as people in their 30s are known to get Botox the same way people in their 60s might, whether it’s those lines around the eyes or lips or your forehead.

Paying For Botox

There is, however, one minor catch, and it’s that Botox does not last forever. Some people choose to get Botox only because they want to make sure they look their best for a social event, and in those cases, one trip and a few injections are all they need. But there are many who go back to their doctor every few months to continue injections so that their faces continue to stay wrinkle free. At the same time, some people get Botox every so often, which further showcases that everyone is different. Just keep in mind that you understand your reasons for wanting to get Botox, how it works, and how often you would want to get it.

We also cannot forget the price, which varies from the type of injections, how often you do it, and how many in one session. Sometimes Botox is not that expensive, but each unit can cost you a certain amount, as the amount of units determines how many injections you are asking for or require. This is something else you must keep in mind when getting Botox, as you may not need as many injections as you think. You could also have the opposite problem, where you don’t think you need much when you actually need more. This is why it’s always recommended to have a consultation with the doctor before proceeding with a procedure.

How Long Does Adderall XR Last?

There are some disorders which people exhibit in ways that do not always seem apparent to others. You may see someone be a bit restless or fidget a lot, but it does not occur to you as to why this is. They may seem more tired than everyone else, or maybe that do not seem as focused. It does not come from common distractions, either; they seem to have a hard time focusing on any one thing and it may get in the way of their work and daily life. Perhaps this person has been suffering from this disorder for most of their life and they never noticed it before. This person could have ADD/ADHD, which also includes hyperactive behavior. While not uncommon to detect in children, it can affect adults as well. The good news is that, if you are an adult suffering from ADD/ADHD, you are not alone, and this disorder can be treated fairly easily.

 

Similarly, a person could seem tired throughout most of the day, but maybe not appear hyperactive. You might catch them dozing off or struggling to stay awake during regular daytime activities. Someone like this could have a disorder known as narcolepsy. A person with narcolepsy is prone to falling asleep at any time, which can include during the day even when among the company of people they know. Like all disorders, you would need to consult with a medical doctor in order to determine if you do actually have narcolepsy.

 

Mango Clinic Miami can help you with determining whether or not you show signs of ADHD, narcolepsy, or any other type of disorder. With our certified and professional staff of physicians, we can help you find relief options that will work best for you. Once you have gone through a doctor’s evaluation, you will have a better understanding of the disorder and what options you can choose from. In many cases, certain types of medication can be the best help.

 

What is Adderall

What is Adderall?
Adderall is a Schedule II drug and potentially addictive. Consult your doctor before taking Adderall XR

 

While you may not think to compare ADHD and narcolepsy, they can both be treated with the amphetamine-based Adderall. A combination of salts and enantiomers, Adderall treats these disorders by affecting the nervous system and making changes within the brain. Through cognitive enhancement, one can improve their focus, attention, and response time when taking Adderall.

 

It is a drug that can truly alleviate the symptoms associated with ADHD and narcolepsy and can allow people to regain their focus while also making them more alert. It is prescribed in low doses and this has proven to be enough for the many who take Adderall to find relief. However, Adderall is also known for being easily abusable, which can form a few different factors. A person can ask that their dosage be increased, and it can be easy to abuse this if you are not careful. People will want to take advantage of medication that not only provides them relief but also makes them feel much better. Adderall is known for producing a euphoric feeling for some, and this can make it tempting for abuse, possibly leading to addiction.

 

On top of possibly being addictive, Adderall also brings with it more traditional side-effects. With any medical drug, it’s important to know of these side-effects and understand that they could pose a hazard for you. Some of these side-effects include insomnia, dry mouth, weight loss, erectile dysfunction, and weight loss. As long as you know how much you should be prescribed, avoiding abuse should not be an issue, but it is ultimately up to you and your physician. If you may be prone to abusing the medication, perhaps Adderall is not best for you.

 

How Does Adderall Work

 

All of us have a brain that houses what is known as a reward center. It’s here where people will get the motivation to do things, which is where the idea of there being a reward comes in. It’s this that motivates us to eat, sleep, drink, and do any number of other things.

 

What Adderall does is help the brain release more dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps us focus; those who might be suffering ADHD tend to have a lack of dopamine within their system. This can result in them not having proper focus and unknowingly seeking attention or distractions that the dopamines would normally keep in check.

 

Adderall is able to stimulate the brain by releasing dopamine that is otherwise being inactive. In this form of dopamine release and further stimulation of brain activity, you are actually able to stay focused and alert. It can seem a bit odd to say that further stimulation of the brain helps with inattention, but it has proven to work for those with ADHD symptoms.

Understanding Adderall and its Role in Helping ADHD and ADD Symptoms
Consult physicians at Mango Clinic to learn which form of Adderall is right for you

 

Adderall XR (or Adderall Extended Release) is a special form of Adderall that not only lasts longer but is stronger in its effectiveness. Where a normal Adderall IR prescription will need you to take it a few times per day, XR only needs to be taken once every 24 hours to be effective. In fact, you should not be taking XR more than once every 24 hours due to how powerful it is. Abuse of this type can be extremely hazardous to your health, more so than less potent forms of Adderall.

 

As XR should only be taken once a day, the amount of time it lasts ranges around 12 hours. It then stays within the body for around 24 hours and takes a few days (more than two) to fully leave your system. Since XR is a more powerful version of the usual Adderall prescribed, be sure to speak with your doctor and make sure it is right for you.

 

You can get in touch with Mango Clinic Miami in case you feel you could benefit from Adderall XR. One of our licensed physicians will be able to thoroughly evaluate you and see if this type of medication is right for you. Remember, ADHD or narcolepsy must be diagnosed by a licensed medical professional, and they are the only ones who can recommend you for any type of medication. Call us or visit our webpage so you can schedule an appointment today.

What Is Adderall and How To Buy It In Miami

Do you ever feel more restless than usual? Maybe you feel more tired than you have in the past. It could be something in your diet, or it could be something natural within the body. Perhaps you are finding yourself unable to concentrate very well; this could be something that has been developing for years or it just started happening to you. You could be exhibiting symptoms for ADHD, which would explain the restlessness and unease you are having. It is not unusual for adults to have ADHD; the symptoms may include agitation, inability to focus, and feeling hyperactive. There are different ways to treat ADD/ADHD; one of the common ones include Adderall. It is always important to understand how the medication affects you as it may have different short and long term effects. How long does Adderall last? In this piece, we are going to give you some insights on that.

 

Narcolepsy, which is a sleep disorder that has you feeling sleepier than normal, might be another condition treatable with Adderall. For those with narcolepsy, you can find yourself wanting to sleep during the day, and in some cases, will fall asleep. The sight of someone with narcolepsy just falling asleep during a regular daily activity is thus not that unusual when the condition is understood. While an actual doctor’s exam is needed to determine if you do or don’t have narcolepsy, it is important to understand that a lack of hypocretin is usually the cause.

 

Mango Clinic can help you better understand whether any symptoms you have are related to ADHD or narcolepsy. Located near Downtown Miami, our clinic is dedicated to helping you combat whatever illness or ailment you may have. Whether it’s physical, psychological, or both, our experienced and certified staff of doctors can assist you in finding the very best help possible. Through examinations and evaluations, we can help you discover ways to get you feeling better, including prescriptions for well-regarded and helpful medication.

 

Adderall for ADHD and Narcolepsy

 

ADHD and narcolepsy don’t exactly have much in common, but there is a reason we brought them both up;  Adderall may be used for treating both. This is a combination drug that is used on the central nervous system that causes varying effects on a person. Adderall is used to treat both ADHD and narcolepsy, as it is used as a cognitive enhancer, which allows a person to heighten their focus and attention in ways they otherwise could not.

What is Adderall and how long does Adderall last?
Adderall is a Schedule II combination drug consisting of different amphetamine salts.

 

Adderall takes two amphetamine enantiomers and uses them to alleviate the symptoms of ADHD and narcolepsy. The results associated with this include increased focus, feeling more awake, and improving your cognitive functions. With a regular low dosage, a person can experience positive effects from Adderall, allowing them the chance to live a more regular life. However, Adderall is also easily abused; in addition to improving focus and cognitive recognition, it is also known for making one feel euphoric. The better feeling it provides to a person can be easily taken advantage of, causing a person to abuse the amount they would normally be prescribed.

 

It’s also important to understand the side-effects involved. For one thing, you can find yourself being dependent on Adderall, and this in itself is a possible danger, but it can be prevented ahead of time. As long as you understand that this drug should not be abused, and you can stick to that, addiction to Adderall should be avoidable. Some other psychological side-effects include having a greater air of confidence, mood swings, being more alert, and insomnia. Physical side-effects vary from person to person but can include dry mouth, fatigue, hypertension, erectile dysfunction, weight loss, and blurred vision.

 

How Does Adderall Work And How Long Does Adderall Last

 

It starts with the brain’s lack of dopamine, which is located in what is known as the brain’s reward center. This area is what tends to cause motivation for doing things, so people often want to stimulate their brain’s reward center. When dopamine, a major neurotransmitter, is lacking, it can cause a person to lose their focus because they are unknowingly seeking distractions. It’s the release of dopamine that can cause a person to not be as anxious or agitated, and this is what Adderall does for the brain.

 

As an amphetamine, Adderall stimulates any stagnate dopamine and releases it, which allows for the brain to function more regularly. By stimulating the very thing that causes you stimulation with motivation and distraction, you are able to actually treat common ADHD symptoms.

 

How Long Does It Take for Adderall to Kick In

Understand how prescription medications might affect you

So, how long does Adderall last? The time it takes for Adderall to affect you will depend on whether you are getting Adderall Immediate Release (IR) or Extended Release (XR). Adderall IR will last around four hours; it needs to be taken throughout the day in order for the person to keep its effects going. Adderall XR can last an entire 12 hours, while the drug itself can stay in your system a full 24 hours.

 

The amount of time traces of these drugs stay within your system also vary, since XR is a much stronger type than IR. Since IR is not as strong, traces of it within your body do not usually last longer than a couple of days. This is not the case with XR, which can leave traces lasting around four days, due to its higher concentration and stronger effects.

 

If you decide you would like to take Adderall, be sure you understand the possible consequences and side-effects of doing so. Adderall could be just what you need to find relief, allow you to refocus well again, and keep you alert. But it can also be easily abused, so you should still maintain some caution when deciding if any kind of prescription medication is right for you.

 

Before anything else, you should always consult with your medical physician. Be sure you understand how long Adderall lasts and which type is best for you. While you may think you have a disorder or that you need to be checked out, you will need to set-up an appointment with a local doctor so you can be absolutely sure. They will be able to evaluate you and decide whether medication is among the best options for you.

 

If you would like to be evaluated for possible ADD/ADHD treatment and for prescription medications like Adderall, come to Mango Clinic Miami; we can help you make the best choices for whatever your disorder or ailment might.

Concerta-Prescription-Miami.jpg

Concerta for ADHD treatment in Miami

If you’re reading this, there is a high chance that you live a very busy life. Many things happen, people coming and going, and work that always seems to be plentiful. Depending on the type of person you are, you can handle it very well or you might struggle. Everyone is made differently, and it’s okay to not be the very best at everything. We can get caught up in much of the things life throws at us, and we may not always know the best way to respond. This can also result in us not taking note of how these events affect us mentally and physically. There might be changes or things that have been a part of us for years that we simply choose to either accept or ignore.

 

If you find yourself being more distracted, which means being less attentive to whatever it is you’re focusing on, you could be exhibiting symptoms of ADHD and you might need to speak to a licensed ADHD doctor. While a lack of concentration is the most famous example of this disorder, you may also be less active (as well as more tired). Additionally, you might be acting impulsively and not be as organized as you could. It can usually be detected during childhood, but plenty of adults later in life report having signs of ADHD. If you take into account the idea of acceptance and ignorance, it’s no surprise if a decent amount of the adult population has symptoms related to the disorder.

 

Another disorder that leaves a person feeling tired is narcolepsy. While fatigue is one of the main symptoms, narcolepsy is most famous for causing people to fall asleep at the least appropriate times. It can cause a person to fall asleep during a meeting or a social event, which can be problematic, as well as highly embarrassing. Contributing to sleepiness and fatigue, someone with narcolepsy can also be affected by cataplexy, which involves the weakening of body muscles.

 

Mango Clinic, located near Downtown Miami, can help you find true relief for the symptoms brought about by these disorders. With our professional staff and certified doctors, we can assist you with treating not only ADHD and narcolepsy, but anxiety, weight loss, and sexual dysfunction, among other disorders. With our help, we can help you discover if a drug like Concerta is right for you.Concerta example pills

 

What Is Concerta Used For

 

Both ADHD and narcolepsy can be treated with Concerta, which is a stimulant medication that is specifically used to treat these disorders. Concerta is a specific brand version of methylphenidate that can be prescribed by your local doctor and it usually comes in extended release (XR). What this means is that it takes effect in your body much more strongly than some other forms of medication for ADHD or narcolepsy. By being a more potent dose of medication, Concerta is able to last for about 12 hours. However, it should not be taken more than once every 24 hours, due to its strength.

 

Methylphenidate is primarily a combined chemical makeup that targets dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter which likes to spend its time in the brain’s reward center. Dopamine helps promote motivation for doing things, which plays into the reward center and how it affects people. If you ever do something and derive pleasure from it, you can thank dopamine. It’s what makes you want to eat food for both survival and delicious flavor.

 

What a drug like Concerta does is locate dopamine and help release it out from the brain. By doing this, your brain stays stimulated, which then causes you to become more focused and alert. By making sure the dopamine stays where it should, as well as making sure it keeps getting released with the help of the brain’s receptors, Concerta is able to make those with ADHD and narcolepsy more organized and attentive.

 

It is important to remember that, like any prescribed drug, Concerta has its drawbacks. One of the most notable issues with taking methylphenidate is the possibility of addiction. Drugs like Concerta are known for being easily abused, which why dosage levels are usually low for first-time users. The feeling one gets from these drugs can be euphoric in nature, which can make the users want to keep taking the drug for the sake of the high it provides. Someone who takes Concerta can always try their hand at asking for frequent refills or a higher dosage, which a licensed doctor could do. This same doctor, however, could recommend a lower dosage and stick to this, as well as not further prescribe the user if it is no longer benefiting them. You may want to reconsider using Concerta if you think you could be easily addicted to this type of prescription drug. Consult with an ADHD Doctor in Miami to start your treatment.

 

How Does Concerta Work

 

We’ve already talked about how methylphenidate goes after dopamine in the brain and helps it get released to allow you to become more alert and focused. What makes Concerta so special is that it utilizes the osmotic-controlled release oral delivery system. OROS for short, this system is found within the actual Concerta pill that you ingest. At its most basic, it’s the pill as you would expect it, but with a hole that allows for the drug to be activated by being pushed out via osmotic pressure, thanks to the water that the pill absorbs when going through your body.

How To Get Adderall In Miami?

Life can be a bit of a roller coaster for many people. At some point, we feel very high, with everything going exactly as we always hoped it would be. We celebrate with friends, we enjoy social activities, and we get well-deserved relaxation. At other times we may feel very low, with nothing going the way we want it. Maybe we have financial problems plaguing us, or certain events have happened that have caused things to look bleaker than usual. Life is full of high and low points, and we always have to do our best to work through them.

Sometimes these high and low points bring out things within us we never before took notice of. Maybe it’s something that has been with us for years, but at some point in adulthood, it shows its face for everyone to see. This may manifest as us being unable to focus as much, being prone to distraction, and a hard time standing still. In other ways, it may result in extreme fatigue, exhaustion, and a strong urge to want to sleep even when the time is not appropriate. There are many reasons we may start exhibiting these signs, but they are usually quite treatable with the help of physician evaluations and medication prescriptions.

The previously described symptoms are related to ADHD and narcolepsy, both of which are often treated with the amphetamine known as Adderall (prescription medication). While ADHD presents signs such as restlessness and inability to focus, narcolepsy is when you are extremely tired and prone to falling asleep at random points during the day. Miami ADHD Clinic is able to provide assistance in evaluating you for any of these symptoms. Our licensed ADHD doctors will be able to provide you with the best options to treat your disorder and help you better understand them.

 

What Is Adderall For

Is Adderall Right for You

If you need Adderall, it’s likely because you are having trouble focusing or you have been more tired than usual recently. As an amphetamine, Adderall works by connecting with the central nervous system and helping the brain stay stimulated. This is done by the amphetamine coming into contact with what is known as dopamine. One of the reasons we are able to stay as functioning as we are is because of dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter that works with the brain. Specifically, dopamine likes to spend its time being released from the reward center. This reward center is what makes you motivated to wake up and start your day. If you wake up, have breakfast, and go to work, you will be rewarded with ways to experience fun, enjoyment, and pleasure; this includes survival habits such as eating and drinking.

More specifically, Adderall is able to help the brain release dopamine again. This is because dopamine working as it should is what can keep the brain working just fine, which means not being easily distracted by anything. By stimulating the brain and helping release dopamine, one’s brain becomes highly active, and thus the brain finally gets what it has been craving. In other words, Adderall gives the brain the distractions it has been so desperately seeking, which then allows you to finally get focused and alert.

The general positive effects of Adderall have proven to be extremely successful for those suffering from ADHD and narcolepsy. It can provide newfound life changes and improve the daily lives of the people who take it. Even college students have found benefits in taking Adderall, as it allows for a level of concentration that they may not be able to get from anywhere else. Amphetamines are generally with people who may be feeling unwarranted stress and restlessness, which can be symptoms of ADHD, but people who have trouble concentrating, whether they have ADHD or not, may be interested in the medication.

It should be noted that, for all the good Adderall does and gives to people, it has also proven to be quite addictive to some. On top of making people more focused, Adderall is also known for its euphoric effect that gives its users a high, similar to an illicit drug. These are some of the reasons why the drug has been shown to be easily abused by its users. Some other examples of this include asking for a higher dosage from the doctors who prescribe the medication. People can successfully become dependent on amphetamines and get their prescription either filled more frequently or have a higher dosage. This can lead to very unintended consequences that can include overdosing, so if you think Adderall can help you, consider all possible effects it can have.

 

Who Can Prescribe Adderall In Miami

 

If you are interested in getting Adderall for ADHD or narcolepsy treatment, you should understand that the only person who can prescribe this medication for you is a licensed medical professional. You have to meet with a licensed physician who can properly evaluate you and see if you show the symptoms associated with any disorder that can be treated by Adderall or any other amphetamine. They can also help you understand the symptoms that you have, figure out why they manifest, and why certain medication like Adderall can help you treat them.

Adderall IR – ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

As time has gone on, and you have grown older and held down a job, do you find yourself feeling more agitated? Do you feel a bit more nervous, restless, or even unfocused? Is it possible that you are having trouble concentrating, not just on work, but day-to-day activities? Maybe you are getting more easily distracted, while also feeling more tired than usual. You are not exactly sure why this is, either. It could be something you’ve had since childhood and it never truly manifested until now, or maybe you’ve always had it and you just got used to it. In any case, you might have to face the possibility that you had symptoms of ADHD. Commonly detected when you’re young, ADHD is something that affects adults as well, and it can be disruptive to their lives. Instead of living a regular well-adjusted life, you have to cope with the various symptoms that afflict you on a daily basis. However, it does not have to be this way; help for adults with ADHD does exist and they can be combated in different ways; ADHD treatment in Miami could include counseling, medications (e.g. Vyvance, Adderall IR or Adderall XR), or a combination of both.  If you think that you or your loved ones suffer from ADHD, don’t wait. Contact Mango Clinic Miami to get professional help from an experienced doctor.

 

Something else that can afflict adults is narcolepsy, which can cause you to be sleepy during hours where sleeping is not the norm. You may be at a business meeting, socializing with friends, or having lunch, when you will get the sudden urge to fall asleep. In some cases, you may actually do just that. This disorder can be evaluated, diagnosed, and treated with the help of a licensed physician. By seeing a medical professional, you will be able to know if you actually have the symptoms of narcolepsy and get the right help for recovery.

 

Both of these ailments can be treated by Mango Clinic Miami. Featuring licensed doctors and staff, we can help you find the relief you need by figuring out what you have and discovering the best options for you. Every patient is different, so we take great care to treat each patient’s individual’s needs carefully and thoroughly. There exist many ways to take care of these disorders, one of which has proven to be immensely helpful for millions around the world.

 

What is Adderall IR

 

Both ADHD and narcolepsy can be treated with the amphetamine Adderall, which has existed for several decades and has provided much-needed relief for people the world over. It’s combined chemical makeup works with the nervous system and brain to provide you with more focus, attention, and response. By enhancing one’s cognitive abilities, Adderall has proven to be a beneficial medication for those suffering from ADHD and narcolepsy’s symptoms.

Adderall IR 20 mg appearance

 

When taking Adderall IR (Immediate Release) in low doses, it can be very effective in alleviating and treating stress, inattention, and irritation. It can even help you focus on your studies if you’re a student, which has made it popular among the college-aged crowd. But while Adderall has proven itself as genuinely effective, as well as popular, it can also be easily abused.

 

Taking advantage of how much medication you get is nothing new, but Adderall has some notoriety in this field. If you think it could be dangerous to take it due to reasons of addiction, you may choose not to. Otherwise, be aware of the risks when taking Adderall and make sure you never take more than is prescribed for you. You should also be aware of any potential side-effects that could incur from Adderall. Outside of addiction, you may possibly have weight loss, dry mouth, insomnia, mood swings, fatigue, blurred vision, and sexual dysfunction.

 

How Does Adderall IR Work

 

Understand the risks of taking Adderall

Adderall IR is the most common type, but all types work in a similar way of helping your brain releases dopamine. Those who have ADHD tend to have low amounts of dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter usually situated within the brain’s reward system. You might be familiar with the reward system: you do something because of the incentive that comes from completing the activity or goal in question.

 

The reward system located inside our brains is what motivates us to do things like eating food, drinking liquids, and procreating. When you are lacking in dopamine, your brain will not be able to focus like it normally would. What Adderall does as amphetamine is stimulating your brain by getting at the dopamine that refused to get with your brain’s receptors. By doing this, Adderall helps the brain release dopamine and makes sure it continues to do so.

 

How Long Does Adderall IR Take to Kick In

 

As the more common and basic version of Adderall, IR takes around an hour for effect. This effect lasts for about four hours or so; in order to keep the effects going, you would need to take it periodically throughout the day. This is also why abuse is a factor, since someone may not think they have enough Adderall dosage for effect. It can stay in your system for the few hours it has its effect, and it can take a couple of days for it to entirely leave your system.

 

Since Adderall can provide a very calming and euphoric feeling in the people who take it, you must always be careful of how much you decide to get. While proven to be very helpful for those who need it, some may think that the dosage they have is not enough for them. This is also why doctors tend to prescribe low dosages since it’s such an easy drug to abuse. Always keep in mind the risks involved with taking Adderall, as it has been shown to be a real problem. As long as you take only as much as you’re given, your treatment should be healthy and effective.

 

If you think that taking Adderall can help, then don’t let the chance slip away. Contact us here at Mango Clinic Miami and get yourself evaluated by a licensed medical doctor. Our clinic located near downtown Miami will be able to evaluate you and help you understand the symptoms associated with ADHD and narcolepsy, as well as whether Adderall is right for you.

Anxiety-Treatment.jpg

What is the best anxiety treatment in Miami?

Mango Clinic Miami knows how anxiety can get to people, and how it can be a lifelong problem for some. Anxiety can affect one’s daily life in a way not everyone may understand or know how to handle. It can be overwhelming for a person, and they may not be able to do things they want to. At times, it prevents them from seeking the help they need, which may cause substantial deterioration of their condition; anxiety treatment is always easier and more effective at earlier stages. Unfortunately,  anxiety affects a large percentage of the population, and many do not actively seek treatment. 

Thankfully, no one has to go through it alone, as generalized anxiety disorder treatment involves a wide variety of treatment options. Everyone goes through it differently, so what might work for some may not work as well for others, but it can be combated and taken care of with the help of friends and family.

 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety Treatment

One of the most well-known forms of treatment for anxiety disorder, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) involves a few sessions with a therapist, with a focus on identifying solutions to one’s anxiety. How this works is that the therapist will help you figure out the possible causes of your disorder, and from here you will both work out the best ways to combat those causes. The idea behind this is to take control of what is causing your anxiety, not just by facing it, but by finding solutions to your problems. With a combination of planning, reviewing, and dedication to resolution, CBT has proven to be both a popular and effective form of combating anxiety.

Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) is one of the best-known forms of CBT, as it narrows its focus of looking into a patient’s interpersonal issues and identifying what causes them. This therapy form works to find those problems that plague a patient’s personal life, and then find solutions to them that are both healthy and beneficial. This, in turn, can also lead to the patient developing social skills that will benefit them after the initial therapy has concluded.

 

Hypnotherapy for Anxiety

 

Hypnotherapy for AnxietyIt may not be the most obvious choice, but hypnotherapy (aka hypnosis) has proven to be an effective anxiety treatment. It comes from the understanding that anxiety is an unconscious habit formed over the years; just one past incident can cause a person to suffer from anxiety. A common fear is public speaking, and a bad experience with this could cause anxiety for years. Every subsequent time you need to speak publicly, your body is likely to react like it did the first time, and you will not want to go through with it. These are reactions you have without realizing it, and they can give you anxiety (or add to it) without you having noticed.

Hypnotherapy for anxiety involves being hypnotized until you reach a trance, at which point your focus will be as narrow as can be. From here, the hypnotist might ask you personal questions that will allow you to get at the root of your anxiety. This can include reliving an old memory, identifying how something makes you feel, and finding a way to eliminate those feelings that trigger your anxiety. In this way, hypnosis can have you face your anxiety head-on by looking into its causes and coming to terms with your anxiety by looking deep within yourself to find solutions.

It’s important to remember that hypnosis is not about controlling one’s mind or actions, but instead reaching a certain headspace. More than anything, it’s a very meditative experience that has you looking inward, while also practicing techniques that will calm and relax you. The idea is to reach a state of peace that will allow you to really focus on yourself, your anxiety, and what is causing it, allowing you to tackle your problems in a healthy and productive way.

 

Natural Remedies for Anxiety

The natural remedies for anxiety vary, as some are more involved than others. For example, exercise is recommended for those who may suffer from anxiety, as it provides a release and focus via the energy that comes with it. As exercise has been generally well-known for being good for one’s mental and physical health, it can also considerably supplement your anxiety treatment.

Meditation is another physically involved treatment that is popular for helping reduce stress. Yoga is especially well regarded, as it’s often known for relaxing the individual and being a good form of exercise that’s less strenuous than others. In a similar vein, making sure you’re relaxed on a regular basis can be achieved by doing relaxation exercises. Many of these can be done laying or sitting down; you can combine physical activities (such as relaxing your muscles) with breathing exercising (such as taking deep breaths).

Herbal teas are also a popular remedy for anxiety, as they are well liked for the calming relief it can provide the drinker. Similar to how coffee can energize a person, tea can calm a person and bring them to a state of peace. This makes tea a good choice for those looking for something that is both healthy and soothing.

 

Anxiety Medications in Miami

Anxiety treatment medications can be beneficial, but there do exist different types, so it’s always important to consult with your doctor. Based on a conversation with a doctor anti-anxiety medication can be prescribed.

 

What drugs are prescribed for anxiety?

There are two main types of anxiety medication:

  • Antidepressants
  • Benzodiazepines

Benzodiazepines are a combination of benzene and diazepine; it affects neurotransmitters in the brain and relaxes the body and mind. Some of the most well-known types of benzodiazepines include:

Anxiety Treatment
Anxiety Medications (Benzodiazepines)
  • Valium (diazepam)
  • Tranxene (clorazepate)
  • Serax (oxazepam)
  • Ativan (lorazepam)
  • Klonopin (clonazepam)
  • Xanax (alprazolam)
  • Tranxene (clorazepate)
  • Halcion (triazolam)
  • Dalmane (flurazepam)
  • Librium (chlordiazepoxide)

Each of these drugs has different chemical makeups, and the effects can vary, which is why you need to consult with your doctor as to which one is best for you. The amount of time it takes for each type to affect you, and how long those effects last, also varies from drug to drug. Some (like Halcion) only last for a few hours, while others (like Valium) can last for a day or two.

Antidepressants are a popular form of medication, of which exist a wide variety. Like benzodiazepines, antidepressants rework your neurotransmitters to affect your brain and body. Some of the most well-known antidepressants include:

  • SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors)
  • TCA (tricyclic antidepressants)
  • MAOI (monoamine oxidase inhibitors)

SSRIs raise your serotonin levels, which can affect your mood, sleep, and appetite; TCAs work similarly to SSRIs. MAOIs increase the level of neurotransmitters that affect one’s mood, and they limit the sorts of foods you can eat and other medications you can take at the same time.

Antidepressant Medications

The medications that fall under SSRI, TCA, and MAOI include:

  • Celexa (citalopram)
  • Lexapro (escitalopram)
  • Prozac (fluoxetine)
  • Zoloft (sertraline)
  • Paxil (paroxetine)
  • Viibryd (vilazodone)
  • Anafranil (clomipramine)
  • Tofranil (imipramine)
  • Marplan (isocarboxazid)
  • Nardil (phenelzine)
  • Emsam (selegiline)
  • Parnate (tranylcypromine)

Clinical-Depression-Symptoms.jpg

If you feel as though you’re suffering from clinical depression and would like to see someone about treatment, come to Mango Clinic Miami. We offer services for treating a variety of disorders and mental problems you may be having. Our professional and certified staff can examine and provide you with various options and recommended solutions for whatever mental ailments you may have.

Identifying Clinical Depression

Every day we engage with people, things, work, and various events, we’re likely to experience a swath of emotions. Some things make us very happy, others frustrate us, and we may occasionally get mad or sad. It’s perfectly normal to have a bad day, or to be feeling a bit down, just as it’s perfectly normal to have a day where everything is great and you couldn’t be happier.

Clinical Depression

So what does it mean if you’re feeling sadder than usual? Do you find yourself lacking the energy to do small, everyday things? Are you finding it hard to experience joy in the things that you used to enjoy? Perhaps you don’t want to do things that you normally are able to, or are unable to find the energy needed to complete certain tasks. Maybe staying in bed all day is more appealing than getting up and being even mildly active. Or maybe you’re finding yourself thinking more and more about your failures, that you can’t do anything right, and that your life isn’t going to improve.

While it’s frequently used as an expression to mean “very sad,” depression is a real thing that people suffer from. Being depressed does not merely mean that you’re not feeling well or that something is making you unhappy. Depression completely alters your life and influences how you do things. It’s important to identify clinical depression symptoms since what are known to be serious indicators could be ignored when they actually need serious attention.

Clinical Depression Symptoms

One of the most common symptoms of clinical depression is the alteration of your feelings and emotions. Sadness is one emotion associated, as is hopelessness and pessimism. Apathy is another, as the lack of feeling is a significant trait associated with depression. You may find yourself no longer finding joy in things you previously did, and it may get to the point where your interest in things is no longer there. You may even see yourself feeling more guilty about things and blaming yourself for every little thing, which also contributes to self-loathing.

Depression also changes your physical state in a variety of ways. You might find yourself feeling more tired than usual, which can make you want to sleep more and be much less active. However, depression can also prevent you from being able to sleep well, which can make you have insomnia. This also can lead or be the result of a lack of focus during the day and the inability to make decisions. On top of all this, you may find your diet being greatly affected. You could be on either side of the extremes: eating way too much to cope or not eating enough due to a severe lack of appetite.

Depression can also vary between the sexes and ages. Teenagers, for example, are less likely to express something like sadness if they’re depressed. Instead, they’re more likely to seem frustrated, as well as have physical pains, such as headaches. Older adults can also express their depression, not in their emotions, but in how they feel physically. This can include chronic pain and aches, as well as not caring for their physical appearance and forgetting to take medication.

Common Symptoms of Clinical Depression

Men and women can also exhibit different symptoms. Men with depression are more likely to treat it as general fatigue, which can include being more tired than usual and having problems sleeping. But they can also try to combat these feelings in very self-destructive ways, such as engaging in reckless behavior and even substance abuse, which can include drugs, alcohol, and gambling.

Women with depression are known to have feelings of guilt, sleeping and eating too much, and gaining weight. There’s also postpartum depression, a very serious case that can affect women who just recently gave birth. A mix-up of the hormones in the body are often to blame for this, and it can be a very serious problem for women who may be feeling overwhelmingly depressed after having a child.

Suicide is often linked with depression, as it is the most deadly and frightening symptom. The symptoms aren’t always so obvious either, as these feelings of suicide can take subtle forms. You may act more recklessly or might start giving away your possessions. More obvious signs can include audibly saying you want to die, or that things would be better if you died, as well as feeling like there’s no hope or escape from your problems.

If you find yourself having regular thoughts of death and suicide, then you should absolutely consult a professional, as well as call a hotline (1-800-273-8255). This is the most dangerous side-effect depression inflicts on people, but with the right support and help, it can be avoided. Don’t ever feel as though you can’t get help, because you absolutely can, whether it’s healthcare professionals, friends, or both.

Come to Mango Clinic Miami if you would like to consult with a professional about treating your depression. Our certified staff will be able to examine your situation and provide the best solutions catered to you. Call us or visit our webpage today to schedule an appointment.
