... Prozac and Lexapro and didn't care for either. benzo's work great for me but I'm an ex-benzo addict who's in recovery. As such my doctor's won't prescribe benzos anymore which is probably for the best since I'm sure I would turn into a addicted benzo bozo within a month. I'm running out of ideas for my GAD. I'm going through a divorce and a bankruptcy and I've deteriorated to the point where it's hard to leave the motel room that I'm staying in. I have an appointment with a new shrink next week. Does anyone have any suggestions on a medicine I can try for my GAD. I would like to get out of this motel room and get a life again if possible. Any med suggestions would be welcomed. I'm fresh out of ideas. Thanks

Hi, I hope you're feeling much better,
now since a little time has passed. If you're still unsettled and or haven't found the right medication yet. Maybe you'll want to consider something like Elavil or Sinequan/Doxepin. Doxepin will help with Sleep & depression plus possibly calm any anxiety down. It didn't help me with anxiety, thou it did with sleep. I would suggest starting with a mild dose. It is or can be a strong medication. I took it for several decades off & on. I could feel like myself again.. well almost. I did experience one side affect. It was, I could get really angry when someone pushed my buttons. I had to work on that. Just remember what works for One might Not work for someone else. So, there's always a better tomorrow. Just hang in there, I think you can do it. Please give Us an update? Hope, Trust & Understanding. ~ God Bless U ~
