Here We Go Again

Posted by misfit , 12 July 2012 · 116 views

So it's become evident that I need SSRIs. I know this, I knew this. But I couldn't stand the weight I was gaining on prozac...or at least what I blamed on prozac. Who knows.

I tried Cymblata. I was optimistic about it since I am in pain all the time. But I reacted really badly to it. So bad I have missed three days of work. So my doctor gave me Prestiq to start. I see that it's pretty much Effexor which I vowed to never go on again because the withrdrawal is so bad. So now I am totally worried. But now I am sitting here thinking...why bother worrying about going off it when I never will be able to go off these things.

Maybe I will feel alive again. Maybe I won't be so angry and annoyed and sad. I don't know.

Misfit, I hope it works out for you. I've had to realize and accept that I'll probably always be on meds. I'm on Prozac now, but took Cymbalta for about 5 years. I just switched over to Prozac a couple of months ago.

At this point don't worry about the side effects from going off your med. Like you say, you may never be able to go off. So, look at the positive effects taking the med has on your life right now. That is the important thing!
