hang in there everyone and me too

the situational depression has been turned up to 11 ---this combined with the "normal depression " is about a 20 .

lorazepam is an evil little drug (adavan ) you take it to knock off the edge -it works but when it wears off you go back to so called normal plus get a spike into the zone of amped up depression/angst .

2. Hugs. Yeah benzos are seductive and dangerous for me...

I was prescribed a round, maybe 90 tablets, of Xanax about a year ago and took them sparingly. I have an addictive personality and often binge drink when things get bad, HORRIBLE habit I know. Anyway I could feel how wonderful those could make me feel if I decided to start down that path. Luckily I managed to always keep it to small dosages here and there and never tried anything more, and eventually I ran out of that script and didn't ask for more. Otherwise I can easily see myself hooked on them.

I have MAJOR problems with stress and would fucking love to find something SAFE like that to remove the constant stress, depression, and anxiety I'm under. SSRIs and SNRIs do a little to take raise the basement a bit but they so far haven't done much more than that and I've taken 4 or 5 different ones.

There is a course of Welbutrin that I was prescribed that I haven't tried yet that I should. I hear good things about it from some people and god knows I need something right now :'(

4. You can take Wellbutrin WITH your SSRI or SNRI

I take Wellbutrin and Celexa.

3. I was on just about every anti depressant known

 

there are new ones but generally very much like the others.It's trial and error and we are the test subjects .I even did a paid trial blind test for a new one last year ( the pay works out to be nothing once you figure getting to the office etc.....

Its surprising how little the prescribers of these drugs know about them I am not anti meds but after almost 30 years of trial and error
I wish I had found a shrink to talk to.

crying works for me and I am a 65 year old grandfather .
