... I have tried a lot of different ones that made me worse! Most made it worse. This drug seemed to work quicker, about a week for me, and my appetite remained the same. I have been on them about 4 months which isn't very long, but I'm hopeful. Vickie J.
Hi! I´m from Argentina, so sorry if my english its very poor. I read your post Vickie J. and you give me a little hope. I´m 26 years, about two years ago I had my first panic attack. After that, It was all fear , anxiety , depression, comings and goings of all these symptoms.
I have tried escitalopram ,after a year stop taking it , and I had a very strong relapse , horrible symptoms. As my psychiatrist did not care ,i change and I started to attend a clinic with a new psychiatrist and psychologist . I started again with the escitalopram 20mg and while I add wellbutrin 300 mg to counteract the side effects (weight gain , and loss of sexual desire).
Actually i´m with bupropion wellbutrin 300 mg, xanax for anxiety , topiramato for weight gain and binging.
My doc give me Brintellix. I have to start taking this days 10 mg per day, and leave wellbutrin one day yes, one day no. Until I see my doc again. And I don´t know what to do. I read good things about Brintellix and bad.
I´m afraid because i don´t know if this is anxiety, depression... or both...
My strongest symptoms are anxiety , but I wonder if there will be a depression and this new brintellex can help me.
Sorry the long story, but I loved your opinions.
