I am so sorry to hear this. I would talk to the pdoc about
a different med. I went from effexor to pristiq rather easily. No brain zaps or anything. But they are closely related. So if effexor didn't work for you, pristiq might not either. They are always coming up with new meds. I might talk to my doc about
lamictal as I take abilify and the copay is 40.00 a month. Rediculous to me. But Insurance is paying less and less all the time.
I went to the dentist and it is going to cost me 1300.00 even with insurance. Crazy. But it does help so I can't complain too much.
I really hope that you feel better soon. Yes, you have been struggling with depression for a long time as I have. And it gets really frustrating at points. It just doesn't seem fair at times. Why do we have to struggle so much???
