Newbie (2/9)



  1. I was in a similar situation. I can understand the isolation and not showering part. I had an appointment with a psychiatrist and she decided to adjust my meds. I had to decrease my meds in order to start the new one. Since I've decreased my meds I found that my motivation has been improving. I think the dose was to high therefore affecting my motivation. I also forced myself to leave the house. Like running errands with my mom or whatever. It was so hard and nearly impossible but it has helped. Hang in there!!
  2. I fell hard and deep into this depression at the end of October. Things got bad fast. I've been off of work since than. I'm trying everything I can to get myself back. When days seem like there getting better I'll crash again. My moods are so unstable and unpredictable. It's frustrates me immensely. Than I start to spiral. I thought maybe I could return to work in a few weeks but I'm scared knowing how unpredictable my moods are. I'm discontinuing remeron tonight and start adding abilify to my Effexor. Feels like I'm back at square one. I need some god dam consistency!!!!
  3. I know I'm free when things get bright again. It happens fast like a light switch for me. I can remember the last two times distinctly when it switched. Things were bright. My senses were brighter. My mind was clearer. Like a sense of enlightenment. Oh how I'm longing for that switch to come on again. :(
  4. Hi I was diagnosed of having manic depression at the age of 13. I've been on a number of different antidepressants and still currently on them at the age of 33. My journey has been filled with dips and valley. (Some deeper than the others) I've had a depressive state last as long as a year and others a few months. I'm currently in a dip but trying my hardest to rise back up. By doing so My doctor and I have been making some medication adjustments. I'm not into exercising by I was lucky enough to get into a program so yea exercise helps but extremely hard when you have no motivation and high anxiety. It's so ****ing hard sometimes! The only thing that keeps me going is remembering that I got through the last one so I can get through this one. Definitely a frustrating journey. So one day at a time. Good luck to you on you journey.
  5. I know where I live it takes a long time to see a specialist. I guess it depends when you can see them again. That's a hard one. Can you come home early? Or plan going after the 5th. Making decisions is so hard when your blue. I hope you can figure something out. All the best!
  6. Tonight I'm starting 15mgs remeron along with 262.5mgs of Effexor. I'm freaking out. My anxiety is so high with the thought of taking a new med. I've read and been warned that remeron causes weight gain. My self image is already so low. I don't know what to do.
  7. I'm so grateful for everyone's replies. I'm currently on 300mg of Effexor. I'm not sure how many mgs the doctor will add of remeron. My other option was to discontinue the Effexor and try Prozac. I've read that remeron will cause weight gain. I'm scared of that as I'm already an overweight female with a low self image. I'm at my wits end and desperate to feel better. Frustrated and anxious.
  8. Hi. My first post and first hour here. I've been on Effexor for the last 7 years. As of the last few months I've been spiralling down. Saw a psychiatrist today and he suggested I add Remeron. Googled it of course and found a lot of mixed reviews. Any experience with crf?
