Per Dr.It worked wonders. I slept well and woke ready to start my day. About 2 months later the effect ended. I had been taking zoloft for years, went off of it then back on at night with the trazodone. All of a sudden my, already severe depression got worse. The Dr. then put me on 5 mg Lexapro then after a week upped it to 10 mg. I wake up early feeling terror, extreme anxiety and the worst fear, just like with the Zoloft I suffer from severe dpression and now anxiety disorder. But when I add an anti depressant I get worse. Ive taken many different types, wellbutren, mood enhancers... and they make my life a living hell. I love trazodone and ativan, but mixing with antidepressants are terrifying. My depression is to the point I have no desire for anything. I sit all day, no tv, books, my hobbie, work... nothing !!! Is there an antidepressant that will work with trazodone and ativan without feeling like Im losing my mind? Plus, I noticed the symptoms became so much more pronounced since starting menopause..help!:(
There are many, many different antidepressants, plus several other categories of medications that could help your depression without making the anxiety worse. Have you ever tried Seroquel or Lamictal? Unfortunately, it is a trial and error sort of ordeal as each of us is different. I might add that therapy along with medication has been very effective in treating my depression and anxiety.
