A month ago:
-wife left me
-lost my job due to being really anxious
-had to move back to my parents house
I was diagnosed with MDD about 2 weeks ago, and have been on Celexa (am) and Trazodone (pm). The first week of meds was good,no negative thoughts and feeling better, however 2 days ago I felt different, like I was taken down a few notches. I'm starting to have automatic negaive thoughts again, but i try to kick them to the curb as much as I can.
I know meds take time, so I'm just weathering this storm until Nov. 14th, as I have an appointment with a pdoc then. I was thinking of asking him to add another med to my regimen, or upping the dose of Celexa. Also the trazodone was prescribed for sleep, but it doesnt work as well as I want it to.
Anyone else have the experience of the meds working well, then suddenly feeling they're not? I don't think the first week was a placebo effect, because I still had a lot of anxiety. Now I don't get anxious as much, but the thoughts keep entering my mind!
Sorry if my post seems vague! I just don't want to go into too much detail right now.
Also, I have a great supportive family, and a niece on the way (Christmas baby!), but no supportive friends. Hopefully I'll find some friends here. I have a lot of time on my hands, but I am going to nursing school in January so until then I hope you guys will be here for me.
Looking forward to hearing from all of you out there
