Hi all-
I just realized I have been posting and haven't introduced myself here yet. I am pretty well known at the GERD forum, but a rarity here. I do have anxiety issues along with depression that has come from pain, inability to work right now and some other unknown issues, as best as I can tell. I do see a therapist on a pretty regular basis right now, Thanks Kitt!. I am currently taking Ativan, Cymbalta, and seroquel for these.

Take care,
Bill devil

Ps. Kitt, I haven't forgotten my emoticon yet!

Hello Bill and I am so glad to see you here in the A & P Forum. 
 
I was on Ativan, Cymbalta and Trazadone combo at one time.  My P-doc had increased the Cymbalta to 120 mg which literally had me on the floor as it drop my BP.  That was 2 years ago.
 
Over the years I have been on many combos and currently I use Effexor XR 150 mg, Valium 2-8mg daily, and Trazadone 150mg for sleep.  I also use a low dose of Buspar for the anxiety, 15mg twice daily. 
 
As you know I have a really great therapist whom I see monthly right now with the option of seeing her more often if I need too.  She really helps bring me out of the " what if " thinking and has helped me learn to stop beating myself up. 
 
Your emoticon is right on.  My favorite emoticon is smhair bad hair day ~
 
Stick with us my friend.
 
Kindly,
Kitt
