Re: I can not TAKE IT ANYMORE, and don't know where to turn?! Getting Really Embarra

Hi yes I'm actually on Effexor er which is supposed to help both depression and anxiety. The adderall had not messed with my anxiety so far (I understand that can be a risk) but I hear the key is to to build up. My Dr. had mentioned it and I found other people on this board also did it and felt very comfortable trying it. My depression was a bit more severe and I thought if I got control of one maybe the other would fall in line. I'm one of those people Effexor works for just not 100%.My Dr also gave me Atarax which is supposed to be non-addicting to also help with daily anxiety and to use the Klonopin for major...I hope this helps-Christina : )

Re: I can not TAKE IT ANYMORE, and don't know where to turn?! Getting Really Embarra

Hi-I've lost some weight on the Effexor,but the main thing to me is I have not GAINED. It does seem to keep my appetite under control too,which helps a great deal. I don't think anyone really gets depression unless they have it. They try to and that makes it even worse.My husband didn't understand why I couldn't get out of bed but he did have enough sense to say "she needs help". I am lucky in the sense he took the take me "as I am" part of our vows to heart,because I have alot of broken pieces. Look I've rambled on enough,I do hope anyone who feels the need to ever talk reaches out. I need to take me own advice,maybe this weekend i'll post what's been bothering me-Christina
