Laughter is the best medicine J
Hiya Sad & Angry,
I think a mood stabaliser would be a good thing to try. Most AED's (Anti-Epileptic Drugs) are also used as mood stabalisers so I do know about most of them. Carbamazipine / Tegretol (The one I take) and also Lamotrigine / Lamictal are common ones and have fewer side effects. Bi-Polar is not the first thing that enters my mind IMO but we have a Bi-Polar forum as well so if you are worried, you could throw an idea out over there... they are fantastic. It sounds more like a depressive relapse but since you seem to have caught it early it is likely that it will be easier to treat. When you had depression the first time, did you have any therapy or was it just meds? If you didnt have therapy, then maybe this would be a good consideration (Assuming this is depression).
Glad to hear you went to the physicians and you did get started on meds.
Clonazepam is Klonopin, one of the Benzodiazepines. Clonazepam is used to control certain types of seizures in the treatment of epilepsy and for the treatment of panic disorders. It is a fast acting benzo and a good choice for short term use, IMHO.
Keep posting as we are here for you.
