| | Fioricet for depression/anxiety?
I've suffered from depression, anxiety, pain since my teenage years. When I take Fioricet, I am able to be myself around people. I have energy and motivation. The fact of the matter is people, including my family, like me better when I am taking it. I like myself better - I emerge from my shell. I have faithfully tried several antidepressants over the years, but none compare to the results of Fioricet. How can I ever go back to the person I was before I took it? Tired, sad, did not want to talk to people, anxious, in chronic pain. When I am on it, I am taken back to how I behaved when I was younger before the depression, etc hit me. I make people laugh, I am happy, things don't feel like they are out of control, I can get things done, I dont feel overwhelmed with life. The person buried in the depression emerges. Has Fioricet ever been investigated as an antidepressant? Any other 'more acceptable' alternatives? I've tried most of the SSRIs, some brief time on Zanax (just made me tired), Celaxa, Buspar, Effexor, Depakote, Neurotin, the list goes on....safe to say I have very drug resistant depression. I have found something that works. A diabetic is dependant on their medication. I would be fully willing to be dependant on this, but I do not think its an medically acceptable treatment. How can I talk to my doc about this?
