... medications. I'm now on 8 mg of Xanax XR and have been put onto Intuniv for 2 weeks (3 mg). I am feeling more depressed than ever. I have taken this week off work for the first time in 3 years and can't stop feeling so down. I want to cut back on the Xanax but am addicted and will have to do it slowly. But I am really struggling to keep going. My career is seriously being affected and the more I look on the internet the more contradictions come up about these drugs. Can someone help, should I keep going with the Intuniv for longer?
desperately seeking advice
I don't really know anything about Intuniv, but if you feel addicted to the Xanax, I would (with consulting your doctor) slowing get off of it and avoid being perscribed any other Benzos. As for medications I could suggest to you, Prozac has worked miracles for me, I've heard and read many good things about Wellbutrin, Zoloft isn't a bad drug but did not work for me at all, and I would also talk to your doctor about anxiety and possible medications to treat that. Depression and anxiety usually go hand in hand, and that may be a possiblity also. Hope this helps!
