Hi there, recently joined these forums. My last post was typically very dark and upsetting (I was in a bit of a state.) My mood flactuates consantly, and I've been seeing mental health professionals (therapists and psychiatrists) for 2 years now. I was initially told that I had major depression and took lexapro, which took the edge of my major depression (which was starting to get psychotic) but it killed my personality and ability to orgasm (which is hugely important to me, since I'm a bit sex mad.)

Then, I ws diagnosed with bipolar II (never agreed with the diagnosis) and took lamotrigine for about 8 months all up. While it lifted my mood a little, I felt so scattered and jittery all the time it was like I'd drank 9 cups of coffee. My latest psychiatrist has told me that I have adhd (which totally makes sense since my whole family has it) and dysmythia.

So anyway, I've been on prozac for a week after pleading with my GP to give me something to help me take the edge off my crazy mood swings. Annnnnd... so far, so good. The negative voices have ceased, I wake up in the morning with a blank slate... it's almost weird. There's no critical voice there, no paranoid questioning about my boyfriend and his interest in me, no overly-sensitive reactions to what people say. If something bad happens, instead of lashing out I am able to react calmly. It's bizarre, since it's so foreign to what I'm used to!

Oh, and here's the good news.... I CAN STILL ORGASM! And my sex drive is still very much in tact. So far (early stages now) I've felt a very positive response towards prozac. Just thought I'd quip in, since these forums tend to be riddled with the negative kind!

Hi deepdownx

I am so glad that Prozac seems to be working for you. That is great! I hope it continues to work for you.

Listen in deep silence. Be very still and open your mind.... Sink deep into the peace that waits for you beyond the frantic, riotous thoughts and sights and sounds of this insane world. - A course of miracles.
