Yes, I'm posting like crazy this am. I just don't know what else to do. In December I found Lexapro to not be working for me anymore. Started having morre depression and anxiety, bumped the med up and it got worst. Doc changed me to Cymbalta, this did absolutely nothing. He than put me on zoloft. This made me have such severe anxiety and depression I did not want to get out of the bed. My grandmother brought me in to doc yesterday and he switched me to effexor. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? His nurse is setting me up an appoint to see a phychatrist soon. Thats all good, but why are these meds that used to work not doing a thing for me now? Help.
I have been on Lexapro, Prozac, and Zoloft(current). I hated the lexapro. I dont think that i have ever felt worse in my life! I gained almost 30lbs on it.
Prozac was taken a long time ago. I remember that it did work for me. I wasn't really paying much attention to it. Just that I felt better. I wasn't diagnosed with bipolar and had no clue what it was. So, I couldn't tell you if it went along with that. I look back on the past and have realized that before I knew I was bipolar, when I was depressed I would attribute it to something else...anything else. When I was manic, that was the REAL me...so I thought.
Zoloft is what I take now. I started out at 50mg and now I'm at 100mg. Sometimes it makes me a bit ill. It passes after a few minutes though. It just makes me feel hungry. When I get like that, I just drink a glass of milk.
Anyway, point is, there are way too many meds out there!! I still don't feel 100% about the zoloft. I feel that there may be something that could work better for me. Or I need to be on a mood stabalizer. It just takes time to figure out what works for you.
