I've been taking meds for depression, anxiety and panic disorder for about eight years now. I've tried pretty much all medications available for these dxs. I also suffer from chronic migraines, degeration and arthritis in my spine, and bad knees. Plus, I'm in the process of having all my teeth fixed, due to the dry mouth I got while taking Depakote.
Right now I'm taking a cocktail of Cymbalta, Klonopin, and Wellbutrin. Wellbutrin might be a good choice for you, as it is an "activating" medication, as it allows you to feel motivated. It does have some side effects, all of which I consider good, like it helps you to loose weight or quit smoking.
Talk to your doctor and see if Wellbutrin might help you. Good Luck and let us know how you are doing.
Im glad to hear that everything is under control and that you are getting on with your life. Hopefully the UC will fall into line soon as well! I have my fingers crossed for you!
