So, I've essentially diagnosed myself as OCD, but the pdoc has always said it's depression...in any case.
I was on Celexa for 8 wonderful years...no side effects...no obsessing. It was outstanding. But it stopped working
So, they put me on Pristiq...after two weeks, had to stop because I was getting worse.
Enter Zoloft. I've been on it only 4 or 5 days, since starting, my anxiety has been at a major HIGH...so I've been taking Ativan once a day to curb that.
Has anyone gotten worse FROM a med, and then gotten better? Perhaps I just need to give it more time?
Do you suppose it's okay to take Ativan every day to get by until the Zoloft fully "kicks in"?
Anyone have any experience with this?
