Hi everyone, and thanks for those who have posted replies to my posts. I finally went to a psychiatrist on Friday, today is Saturday nite, and was given a diagnosis of Major Depression, and was prescribed Lexapro. As I stated in an earlier post, i was addicted to Ultram (
) and recently started on generic Vicoprofen. I used this to color my depression but it only got worse til I knew I needed to get professional help, as I have been in the Mental Health field for 25 years. I am hoping that the Lexapro will help me with my tapering of the VPs as I need to get off of them especially since my psychiatrist also feels that I have underlying ADD, and will prescribe a stimulant to my medication regimen. Does anyone know how/if the the Lexapro will help me on my taper? Any suggestions from all of you knowledgeable ppl? I offer my thanks for all these past months of my sitting on the periphery and reading all of the posts here on the Boards. It has definitely helped me to decide to get a handle on my addiction. I look forward to hearing and posting with all of you. Thanks again.
