I felt Nothing with this medicine, once 'up to reg. levels' after being prescribed and taking it for over 5 weeks, I felt as though I could not Cry nor could I Laugh and be happy.
I was in a permanent state of "numb" and felt as though just sitting, and not doing or saying anything was about all I could accomplish.
I weaned myself off by lowering the dosage over two-months and then I was done, told the Doc. and we have not re-addressed the issue (my fault, I know) :(
My doctor checked my Lithium levels and said they were "extremely low." He put me on 300 MG of Lithium XR 3X/day. He did not diagnose me as bipolar but everything I've read indicates that that's what this medication is prescribed for. Does anyone know something I don't? Also, I am perpetually EXHAUSTED!! I also take 2 MG of @Xanax 2X/ day, in addition to @Celexa. (40 MG 2X/ day. I feel like I'm walking in my sleep! Functioning is almost impossible! Any insight would be greatly appreciated!!!
Before my dad and mom's death I suffered from depression but meds helped, now I just want it all to end. I haven't been happy or been able to find joy in anything. I've lost all motivation for life. Is Adderall the answer? How do I get my Dr to prescribe it to me? I was told that I couldn't take my Xanax if I took Adderall. Is this true. Please help me to know the correct way… read more
I have been in and out of Depression since 1990; recently I was diagnosed with Anxiety also. I am very good at knowing when I need help whether a med increase or change, someone to talk to or more. So I am struggling with knowing if the way I feel is the Depression or if it is Anxiety. Luckily I have an AMAZING Psychiatrist that I have been seeing every 2-8 weeks for 13 years and he knows that I am good at helping myself!! He changed my doses today and added … read more
I’m in a really bad way right now while I wait for my new med to build up in my system. I need immediate relief though. I can’t go on like this anymore. What is the best strain of marijuana to treat depression and anxiety? I’m planning a trip to the local dispensary
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
I had been fighting this battle with my last psychiatrist then she moved away. The new one keeps wanting to take my drugs away from me and change the ones I am on. The Busiprone is a PITA and does nothing. When I asked her to increase my Adderall (which she gave me instead of the Vyvanse because it's cheaper), she decided to reduce my Klonopin. She has issues with me taking up to 10mg of valium a day. She wants to take away the… read more
Does anyone else feel like it is a mission and a half to find a good doctor?
Over the past month, I have seen 4 different doctors and they are all contradicting each other and I feel like none of them take me seriously.
My latest one (the "best" one so far) put me on Pristiq for 2 weeks. After 5 days the side effects were so bad I passed out. I called her and talked to her, now she has this bad attitude that I didn't try hard enough.
She also won't give me any help for insomnia,… read more
