  1. My doctor won't raise my dose from 30 mgs to any higher dose. I don't understand why. I told him that I am feeling much more anxious on the Cymbalta than off the Cymbalta and he won't make any med adjustments. Would an increase in dosage most likely result in even worse anxiety?
  2. Glad you're a MB20 fan as well! :D Thanks for the welcome!
  3. Yeah, I've tried buspar and it didn't work after weeks of trying it. I've tried 24 different meds and even combinations of meds. I feel really good right now with no anxiety. I have a way of getting more Xanax though once this one runs out. That's all I'm going to say. ;) DANGER: Do NOT try what I'm doing. I'm experienced with what I'm doing due to my tolerance to Xanax. Doses as high as I'm taking can cause coma and/or death. Be careful everyone!!
  4. I'm in Hollywood, California right now and I'm in a star role starting tomorrow with filming. This is a high budget production film. I can't give my name out or the name of the movie, but it's going to the big screens across the world. I'm nervous and am having a hard time not keeping my hands off my Xanax. I've got to remember my lines for the movie and the Xanax messes with my memory, however if I don't take it then my anxiety is off the wall. Any advice for someone like me? I'm just like a normal person at the end of the day. Thanks.
  5. See, college/university is a big goal of mine. My anxiety is so out of control that my family is right in some ways. I'll never be able to go to college if I don't find a med that works for me and right now I've tried EVERY SSRI and SNRI and one try-cyclic med and none have worked. I'm so depressed right now...
  6. Also, I find myself crushing Xanax and taking it the way I shouldn't. I can't take traditional meds because they don't work. I've tried EVERY SSRI and SNRI and one tri-cyclic. I'm trying Cymbalta for the 2nd time around right now and so far no luck...
  7. I just took 10 mg of Xanax. Is that a lot to take? I don't feel high or too sleepy from it, however. I'm allowed 2 mg a day, but keep taking more than what I should. What should I do? If I tell my doctor, then he'll stop prescribing meds altogether. Not even anti-depressants he said. He warned me that I'm on my last chance with meds and if he finds out I'm abusing them or ODing on them, then he won't prescribe any meds to me at all ever again he said and that means ALL meds like non-addictive ones as well as anti-depressants. Now what?? Some days I take close to 20 mgs of Xanax, other days much less depending on my anxiety levels.
  8. I'm truly sorry MB20Fan about the negative comments. You have to believe that you can go back to school and be successful, regardless of what others think or say. Only you can accomplish this goal, and it's most important that you believe and know you can do it, and the heck with everyone else. Don't let others control how you feel about yourself. I know how hard that is, but they won't be taking the classes, studying or taking the exams, so it's truly none of their business anyway. I think this is a great goal and with anxiety and depression, goals and small steps are good for us. Sincerely, MaddieLouise Thanks! I appreciate it. It's really tough when it's your own family. Yes, it's most difficult when it comes from those whom we think we trust and love the most. We expect the most support from them, and yet they can be the most hurtful at times. Just prove them wrong! Thank you.

  10. It's Thanksgiving, so happy Thanksgiving everyone. Anyways I'm hanging with my family and I said I would like to attend college/university someday. I'm disabled and currently not able to attend school/work. When I said I would like to go to school again, someone in my family just said, "I will believe when I see it" and "No you won't". Those are just hurtful comments to me. I can't help having severe anxiety. No meds have helped except for some benzos. I just took 3 mg of Xanax because of my anxiety now. I am also taking Cymbalta which is useless at the moment. I've tried every other SSRI and SNRI on the market. I just feel hurt over the comments and hopeless now. Thanks.
  11. I pop Xanax to calm myself down and deep breathe. Also, music helps too.
  12. Hi MB20Fan, I'm really sorry about your side effects. I experienced quite intense side effects when I first went on Cymbalta and increased anxiety was definitely one of them. I personally moved up in dosage very slowly basically waiting until all side effects subsided at one dosage before moving up to another, but your Dr. will have the best advice. At about 4 weeks, I started to see the improvement and I'm still on Cymbalta four years later. Good luck to you and let us know how you progress. Sincerely, MaddieLouise Thanks! I appreciate the info. Do you get any brain zap sensations in-between doses; not late for a dose, but before your next dose is due, assuming you take it once a day? Some people have complained of that. Thanks again.
