Couldn't get out of bed this morning..had an awful morning. Finally got out of bed, only to start coughing and having dry heaves. I called in sick which is something I rarely do, and called the Doctor and he agreed to see me this morning.
I guess the SAM-e I have been on for the past three years is really pooping out. I dread going back on antidepressants because of side effects and having to work full time. I can't afford to lose my job because of calling in sick with side effects. Not sure what to do. He said to start decreasing the SAM-e and start taking Cymbalta in about a week. He said it has helped many people, but I can't give up and have to stick with it for 4-6 weeks to have any effects. Many times I have given up on medications thinking they don't work for me, if I have bad side effects. Just confused about what to do, but know I can't continue with this anxiety and depression. I have tried exercise to no avail..just feeling punk. I have thought about keeping with the SAM-e since it has worked so well over the years and was told it would be safe to increase it from 400 - 600. I told the Doctor I was more into "Natural Remedies" like SAM-e, 5-HTP, GABA, L-Theanine, ,etc and he said all of those have chemicals in them too, and nothing is really natural. I hate this..not feeling well..and on top of that feeling confused about all these meds and which one is right..thanks for listening.
