Hi there- i would try and find a good pyschiatrist to balance your meds out. Im sorry you are struggling- it seems thats the way AP goes- you feel ok for months, under control and then BAM! it hits you again and you then feel lousy.
Thinking of you, try and remember the positives in your life and see about getting a decent pyschiarist. keep us posted, we undertsand and are here to support you.
p.s my antidepressant doesnt work by itself- i take Zoloft. but i also take Xanax to combat the extra anxiety. i understand that sometimes AD's arent enough.
Setbacks are always scarey...however, you can never go back to square one coz you have already been there done that and you have sought help which is great!
Wondering if you have considered some form of counseling - so you can learn skills to cope with the anxiety..and to help sort out what triggers it too..For me it's life events that send me in a spin -bottling up emotions etc ..until it all bubbles over and this creates my old 'friend' ? anxiety..good meds and counseling is the key for me :)
Hey there, I am with you on this one 100%. I have been having set backs way to often lately and I am scared just as you are. I go into full blown anticipatory anxiety as I think ahead even to the next day and wonder is it going to be another bad day. I try to turn that around into, it is going to be a good day.
I have a pyschiatrist and I see her today. We have switched meds so often I do not even know who I am anymore. I will have some good days and get so hopeful that finally I am going to be OK and then boom, down I go.
So do know I am right here with you. We just have to pick ourselves up and keep going. I know I am brave and tough but I am getting very tired.
You just get to a new doc and see if you cannot get some better help. I am praying for you.
