I am am worried about addiction as well as over kill? My Family doctor has proscribed Liberex First , 2 caps, 2.5mg, three times a day. We did this for about 6 weeks, and it really did not stop a depression.. She than added , 1 Ryzolt 100 mg. once a day . Now this medication has made a big diffrence., my startle is gone, and my hands barely shake. The depression is also nearly gone. And if my hands would be still, perhaps , I could do my oil paintings once again, which used to put me in such a wonderful place.. Only I still lack concentration. I have the atteneion apsn of a two year old. . I do fear medications, yet I can see a diffrence, with this Ryzolt... It's very expensive! Any suggestions as to what antidepressant, that does the least amount of harm, like weight gain and ( not those mind numbing antipsychotic drugs! ) that has been helpfull , for any of you?
Have you tried Pamelor? 'Tis an old tricyclic antidepressant, yet works well on anxiety. It is an SNRI, so it does make one crave sugar and carbs, but so does the Ryzolt that you are taking. So you must watch calories!
Pamelor does not have a pain med in it like Ryzolt though, and I know you have those throat spasms, so dunno if this would work or not.
Hope you and hubby are doing well,
