I haven't posted for quite some time. I am bipolar and suffer from severe anxiety. I was hospitalized in 08 for extreme anxiety and have been on at least 10 different meds since then. Some at the same time. I was on Celexa, Lamotrogine and Buspar earlier this year. But I still felt miserable. The anxiety was tolerable but I was so depressed, exhausted, and felt worthless. I had asked my dr before to try new meds but he didn't do it. Well in early Jul I told him I could not take it any longer, I have been sick since Jan 07 in one way or another. I have the type of depression where one's body hurts. I used Cymbalta for that but it stopped working. This time he listened and asked me some questions about
my body pain and fatigue. He then put me on Savella, used as an a/d in Europe but approved in the US for fibromyalgia. He didn't say he that I had fibro and I don't care what you call it as long as you fix it. Anyway with Savella I began feeling better within 5 days and am now almost back to my pre-2007 self. I also was put on prescript
ion Vit D because I have a chronically low Vit D level. So maybe it was Savella, maybe the Vit D, or maybe a combination. Whatever works!!
