I have tried them all and none of them work for me. I would either feel no effect or have bad side effects. So, I talk to my psychiatrist every 2 months for as long as I need to and I talk with my Therapist every 2 weeks. That is my medication.

I started out at 10 mg Lexapro 17 years ago. 3 years ago it stopped working so he upped me to 20mg. Worked great for 3 years then several weeks ago, it quit again. So now I'm on 20 mg Lexapro, Buspar and Cymbalta with clonazepam as needed. I hope this combo works cause I feel like I'm dying.

I have been thru the Guinea pig stage as I say with psycho meds, started with Zoloft, vistrial, Wellbutrin, geoden, they all had side effects, depression..crazy right? Weight gain, anxiety. All the stuff I was trying to get better from. Finally I went on Effexor xr 300 mg daily, Klonopin 2 mg, 1x/as needed, Trazadone 150mg, at bedtime. Those 3 meds worked wonderful for my situation. I still take them just lower doses and no more Trazadone or anything for sleep. Risperidone was my all time favorite mood stabilizer, I took it for about a year, still had ups and downs but my being on the level was mid range everyday. I felt so good. After a year it threw my hormone gland on the back of my neck that becomes active when you are pregnant. Unfortunately, I started lactating and the and the gland became inflamed and enlarged. I had to then resort to finding another med.
