I,m so very scared. the cymbalta helps a little bit but I want to feel like i did before depression and anxiety was even a thought ... I know that will never happen because ive been suffering with this for 20 years. I,m so sorry if i sound so negative, I just need some hope that my days of suffering will subside just a little..I think my anxiety is much worse than the depression.. I really have nothing to be depressed about at this time but have in the past. I know some of you suffer much more than i and i feel guilty complaining. I hope we all can find peace soon as this is really a nightmare that never ends. thanks for letting me vent..love and hugs..
Hi! I've been on both Prozac and Cymbalta for depression and generalized anxiety disorder. Both helped with my depression, but didn't have much effect on my anxiety. I know for a lot of people these meds work wonders for both disorders. There are plenty of other meds you can combine with the ones you are currently taking that will have a huge impact on your anxiety (clonidine and inderal worked great for my anxiety, they are non-habit forming and don't have many side effects). Just know that you have many options and your doctors will work with you to find the right one. It will get better!!!
Please, try to get guilt out of your life, it serves no purpose. But it rears it's ugly head when we are depressed! Inappropriate guilt is a hallmark of depression.
I had success with Prozac in combination with Xanax. I don't know if you are prescribed a benzo or not, but they really do work! We need to be careful of the addiction factor though.
