I have been suffering with PTSD, and Major Depression for years now. I have some good and very bad days. Last week I just stop going to work I called in sick but today I got a certified letter from my employer. The terminated my employment due to abandonment. That's just makes me feel worse. All I do is sleep and cry this been going on for about 3 weeks now. I am so sad now.
IShonda, I was diagnosed with Manic Depression and PTSD about 9 years ago. First we tried Prozac but I gained so much weight I just couldn't stand it. After much trial and error, I was put on Remeron (brand). It has changed my life. Started at 15mg for about a month then upped it to 30mg which I still take at bedtime. It has really helped me so much. I still have some anxiety issues, but a few Xanax takes care of that for the most part. I have multiple major medical problems and believe that is the source of my anxiety. A lot of people think depression and anxiety are about the same - WRONG - at least for me it is 2 different diagnosis.. Remeron took a couple of months to really kick in, but, I am so glad I stuck it out. My life is much better because of Remeron. Still problematic, but better than before it. Its worth a try!!
