Re: New &trying to come out of the dark
I mimic all my friends in offering you a warm welcome. Whilst talking with my pdoc last week about which anti depressant to try for a while, since my "med resistant suicidal depression" has reached a pretty low "low". He suggested Cymbalta, to which I replied, Uh NO, remember that one made me manic last time for the first week and a half or so, to which he replied, "well lets see, your so depressed your suicidal, do you really think a little mania would be a bad thing right now?" So I guess even though we pretty much have all the same problems in some variation or another our pdocs can have different takes on treating us. I love my both my pdoc and tdoc and wouldn't trade them for anything. But like Tigger i also have a very hard time finding the right med combo, mine has been changed probably 8 - 10 times in the last 4 months. Right now I'm on Lamictal, Abilify, Clonazapam, Buspar, Topamax, Wellbutrin SR, Trazadone and Neurontin.
