The majority of my life I've suffered from depression and anxiety. Sometimes are better or worse than others. In my mid-twenties I finally saw a psychologist. I never wanted to take antidepressants. The doc eventually told me he was referring me to a Psychiatrist and I needed years of therapy. I gave up on all that for a few more years. Eventually I did go see a psychiatrist and after trying a few different antidepressants Effexor worked, along with Adivan. Now years later I'm back on Effexor. I find though that I feel much better on just Xanax, but I don't want to ask my doc for it cuz I hear that most docs won't prescribe it.
I too have had anxiety and depression and unfortunately it took more than 3 years to find the right medication. I am happy for you that you have something that works for you. I take 37.5 of Effexor and 150 of Lamictal.
I do have xanax but only use it for emergencies because I want to have
something that will help me if I have a really bad day. Talk to your psychiatrist and find out how he/she feels about xanax. So glad you are feeling good.
