Re: PTSD medications
Well I am kind of surprised that the doc put you on Effexor. My thoughts would be that you would have been put on Zoloft, or something like that. When are you at 175/110?The 145/97 is a little high on the systolic number. The bottom number isnt too bad. Still I would mention Zoloft and Celexa to the doc, they are tolerated a lot easier on the body with less side effects. Why are you going off of Lexapro and getting back on it when you are taking Effexor? You may want to ask your doc if you can take an antidepressant such as Zoloft, or Celexa and also be given a prescription and you would use it only in emergencies...such as xanax, or ativan. It just seems very strange to me that you would be put on Effexor and Lexapro at the same time. Have you gotten a second oppinion? You may want to consider it, and see what another doc has to say. Hope I was of help. Let me know how this all works out for you, Ok?
