I have tried quite a few and feel I will never get better just need to hear similar stories
Hi Theresa I have been trying for three years to find one that works and continues to work for me. I am now on Effexor 37.5 and 250 of Lamictal (and might increase). I have recently come to the conclusion that a good part of my problem is ME. Counseling is helping me a lot to face some things I need to, including self-talk, being alone and too needy. It's not all about me. Judy
I have tried many different meds over the years. Some work for awhile then don't work. Some cause strange reactions. I still haven't found the magic one or magic combo but I refuse to give up.
Take it One Day at a Time and try praying. I didn't think prayer would work at all for me as I was kind of iffy in what I believed in but it did and still does help when nothing else will.
What I have found is that I have to Believe that it will get better in order for things to start getting better for me and I have to live in the moment, deal just with TODAY and stop thinking about what might happen tomorrow.
Trust me u ain't the first and won't be the last that has gone through this not trying 2 b smart..meds r trial and error and u have 2 keep trying to they find the correct combo for u..but u have to give meds 4-6 wks as Pledge stated in another post of yours..good luck
Theresa - I am on 14 meds for other than depression/anxiety. Have tried all the "popular" meds for depression and/or anxiety, but usually just one at a time due to all the other meds I HAVE to take. Easier to find problem should something cause reaction. Dr is considering a combo, but have to check with GI doctor and heart doc. Please don't give up hope. It may take time, and give each time to work before moving on. Someone mentioned on a post that some of this is in our head. Lets put positive thinking there too. I know, hard to do when feel so rotten. Hope you are feeling better soon.
