to describe how i feel on my current Meds. Ok so i am on Lexapro (20) and Wellbutrin (200). I am going to a new pdoc because my old one i don't think ever really listened to me and how i was doing and just thew some meds at me. This was about
maybe 6 months ago (took me way to long to realize it). When i went on the Lex i really didn't feel like it did much for my anxiety, i was on ativan at the time too and that was the only thing i felt was helping. The anxiety worked its way into depression so i told to doc i didn't feel good on Lex, but he said its a good med and increaded to 20mg and added Wellbutrin. During this time i also started therapy (which i think is really the reason i started feeling better). I'm pretty sure i noticed a difference when the wellbutrin was added for sure, but i don't think the Lex really did much for me.
So, now i need to be able to describe how i am doing on the current meds. I feel semi-stable, though it doesn't take much to kick me out of my stable zone and into depression again. It generally follows my life pattern, when i have an established pattern i feel better but if anything disrupts the pattern, its downhill fast and having a 2 week old, things are chaos right now. I would say in general i usually feel blah, not happy or good, but not bad and depressed. I am rarely happy or upbeat but i'm also not depressed all the time, also motivation to do much of anything is pretty much gone. I'm not sure how i should feel on the meds, i know they are not a cure all but should i be feeling better than blah all the time? I know the therapy is a HUGE part of me feeling better just not sure of the role the meds have played.
Any outside perspective would be greatly appreciated. thanks all hope you are all having a good day.
