Hello all, I'm back. We had a great time! And my son did too! We have been back for a week but I was waiting to post until today because my Dr's appt was today. I saw a different Dr and he was great. He was so confused why the other Dr wrote down so many diagnosis as I was when I found out 2 weeks ago. The meds were also all wrong. Which I thought was a good plan in the beginning but was dying to get back to see someone else today to figure all this out and talk about
the meds. I will be starting Effexor Xr 37.5mgs for one week then on week two I'll go up to 75mgs. He also gave me something for anxiety to take as needed because I've taken antidepressants before and it made the anxiety come out or made me feel to up. He also told me that people can experience anxiety when starting them(SSRI's) After two weeks I'll go back and talk about
possibly adding Abilify. Basically the other Dr I was seeing was a quack and didn't have a clue about
what she was doing from what I gathered from him. It's ok that the road to getting better set me back, I went for help in Jan and all this time it's pretty much got me no where but I'm ok with it. I feel good about
the new plan. And glad I found a good therapist in the midst of it all. We also discussed a dx of major depressive disorder with anxiety, I feel like we were on the same page and we will see what this brings for me. I've been doing good, I still have a high from being out of town lol and my son has been great since we have been home. I think he needed a little vacation too. Anyway cheers to starting over again and if anybody has any thoughts on Effexor let me know! I hope you all have been hanging in there!
