I cannot understand why I will have one very very good day followed by one very bad day, over and over. I am taking the same meds everyday and doing the same routine bascially everyday. Right now I am into week 2 of adjusting my Buspar and Desipramine up a notch, and I have added Ativan between .25 and .5 3x a day. Why the roller coaster ride day to day ? Is this something that will gradually level out? This is weird.

I went through the same thing for the first month or two when switching meds. Hang in there. Also, keep a journal of the good days and bad days so when you visit with your doctor you can provide very useful information. When I started keeping a journal, I found that the entire day wasn't bad, it was only a few hours maybe in the afternoon. Of course, without writing it down, at the end of the day, you can guess what I remembered - the troubling few hours. The writing helped me see a little more objectively. Good luck.

I too am going throught the same thing. I have been taking seroquel 12.5mg and buspar 15mg at night, but just increased seroquel to 25mg at nite and 10mg of buspar. Racing thoughts are a lot less, obsessing is going away and anxiety is too! I have a great day followed by a not so good day. Once the meds kick in to your system you will have more good days. I am having better days because the obsessing is getting better. Less obsessing means less anxiety for me. Hang in there and keep your head up. There IS light at the end of the tunnel.

Whenever you start a new med or change the dose, these things can take 4-6 weeks to kick in. Be patient things will get better soon. I think the idea of journal is a great idea, maybe as times goes on you will be able to see how things are gradually getting better.

Thanks for all your replies. I guess I need to focus on and enjoy the good days. Yesterday was wonderful-felt like my old self and got a lot done and had fun. Today--down in the dumps a little and somewhat anxious again. I guess the hard part is not knowing what type of day I will have which makes getting out of bed harder. I know it takes at least a month. I just get impatient!!!!
