... disorder. So far, meds have honestly just made me worse, so it I am very scared of them... but on the flip side I feel pretty miserable without them with nonsensical anxiety and panic. So here I am on Fetzima day 3. All I see are HORRIBLE reviews. Are there ANY long term success stories on it?? Please don't post any negative ones. I realize there are PLENTY of those out there and have read them all!
I have been taking Fetzima for 8 months. It truly is the best med for my depression, anxiety and mood swings. I have taken many different AD mess starting with Prozac . They all have side effects to some degree and since we are all different, we will each have different reactions to all meds we take in life. All other AD's helped somewhat with depression but Fetzima was the change I needed and it too has side effects. Most of all it does not make me lack emotions or just plain feel nothing. It gives me the energy I need to get things done without speeding me through the day. I do feel that I get angry at times for no reason but I take 25mg lamotrigine with 80mg Fetzima daily in am. I try to walk daily and eat high protein, low carb diet, as well. Another problem I experienced with Fetzima was high blood pressure. Exercise helps me with this but I ended up having to take low dose bp med. I finally do not have suicidal thoughts, feel alive and experience true emotions. It has not been negative sexually for me in fact I feel more sexual than before. Other drugs took away any sexuality. I hope Fetzima continues to work for me and if you try it and give it time to adjust to your awesomely complex body and mind maybe it will work for you. I have insurance so that helps a lot because it is expensive. I gave up a few things I did not really need to be able to continue taking my personalized formula of meds. I hope this helps someone out there looking for answers. Good luck and God bless
