Walking Pharmacy

Does anyone else feel like a walking pharmacy? I'm currently on 60 mg of Mirtazipine (Remeron) and 150 of Trazodone at night, plus 75 mg of Venlafaxine XR (Effexor) in the morning. I also take Clonazepam as needed. I've only been on the Effexor for 2 weeks, 1 week at the current dose.

Of course I still haven't seen any signs that it will work yet. I know it's too soon to tell. I wake up in the morning so depressed that it's almost a physical feeling, like a heavy weight on my chest and a cloud over my head. At night I feel so anxious I could crawl out of my skin. The clonazepam helps if I can't shake it with some deep breathing or being out with my friends.

This is on top of the birth control pill, which I take because I have wicked PMS without it, and the vitamins.

I know I have to take them, but so many pills.

Oh well.
