  1. had a Doctors appt today, he took me off of Zoloft and wants me to go on Lexipro. he advised me not to travel until i know how the new drug will affect me. i am hoping the GF will understand.
  2. I am currently fighting depression and anxiety. a month a go i planned a trip with my GF and was excited about some days away. fast forward to 10 days ago and i have snapped back into a place that is very dark, very anxious, and extremely de-energizing. I have upped my Zoloft, trazodone, and now feel like i am a zombie. I go from eaither 100% anxiety where i cannot slow it down to, 02% energy where i have no hope. Work is a struggle to concentrate. I don't know if all of this is coming from a trip i am soposed to go on or what. I have talked with GF on how i am scared to feel this way away from home, and she is understanding and tells me that getting through this is a process. Looking for advice and Hope.
  3. Hello all, I have a history of Anxeity/ depression going back 20 years or more, first had a outbreak in my early 20's, tried different medicines with little help then found a doctor that put me on Effexor and that helped allot. Was on Effexor for a 15 plus years at the lowest dose and with my Primary doctor decided to try and get off of it completely (bad idea). I stopped the Effexor the end of july and started having panic attacks in sept. i thought this was just my body's way of adapting and went on. they happened every week or so is all. Fast forward to end of OCT and i crashed, full blown panic attacks all day, very depressed, not sleeping, no appitite and so forth. Doctor put me back on Effexor and stepped me up a dose, i started seeing a threopyst. I would get better and crash, get better and crash, and at the beginning of Jan I went off of Effexor because of side effects. Started on Welbutrin and after a month my anxiety was way worse so they put me on Zoloft. after 9 weeks i was good in the afternoons and evenings but morning we tough, Looking back maybe i should have been asking for a higher dose a long time ago. I started to feel like i was loosing ground on the anxiety and 11 days ago they upped my Zoloft. 3 days after increase i had one of the worst days of my life and since have been making gradual gains. Currently on day 11 with Zoloft 50 in the morning and Trazodone 100 at night. I have been told that i have Major Depressive Disorder with anxiety by my dr. I am looking to get back to me with some drive and confidence. Prior to this i was heavily involved in volunteering, a community leader with the emergency services, aggressive in my sales job, and felt great. I want that back and have struggled as of lately, i have anxiety attacks several times a day and it seams that any little stressor can flare up my anxiety and depress the crap out of me. I should also include that i was a moderate drinker when all of the started and have since quit drinking almost completely (one or two maybe once a week), quit drinking coffee, and have started walking 30 min at least 4 times a week. my sysmptoms seem to be the following, No Drive for anything distant in conservation feeling of indigestion and Knots in my stomach tremmors racing thoughts absolutely no libedo (this makes for a challenging relationship) no appitite whatsoever any advice is welcome, my councilor tells me to give the medicine time and practice the self talk, anxiety worksheet she gave me, and take it one day at a time, this is a challenge for me.
