Hi, I don't know how you are doing now.  I am currently taking 150 mg of Wellbutrin XL and 20 mg of Fluoxetine in the morning and have been wondering about taking the Fluoxetine/Prozac at night or switching to 50 mg of Zoloft at night which a friend of mine does, and she said it helps her sleep because before it was making her drowsy during the day, and she also takes 150 mg of Wellbutrin XL in the morning and she said the combination is working very well for her.

Hi Sheryl,

Im sorry you felt you had no responses earlier but will everyone being in different parts of the world, we are all logged on at different times. We are here to support you and I am sorry you are going through such a hard time right now.
I took Prozac for a while myself and I found that it helped with my depression but not my anxiety. I now currently take 10mg lexapro and that really helps with both anxiety and depression for me.
Everyone responds very differently to meds.
I take my lexapro in a morning usually although sometimes I have forgotten and had to take it later in the day. Im not very good at rememberering.
Have you talked to your doctor about your meds???

Please keep posting and let us know how you are doing.
Take care and keep in touch

hi Sheryl!

I take zoloft for anxiety and klonopin for depression. I have what is called situational anxiety/depression. I lost my husband to lung cancer in March and have now found out that one of my dogs has cancer.

I only take 50mg of Zoloft each day and I take the klonopin as needed. usually one to one and a half per day. I've been reading affimative thinking and that helps me to look at the good side of life.

Hope you find the right meds for you and are feeling better. The best to you, Dee

hi there- i took prozac and couldnt get outta bed from it so after a couple of weeks on that i quit it. now on zoloft 50 mg and see no bennies. i also take xanax .50mg for aneixty which helps but whati  realy need is a good ad. i have chronic pain issues like Fibro and failed back surgery with 11 screws and 4 metal plates so i ma on norco 10-325 2 times a day also.
i have tried lexapro, cymbalta which helped me but i broke of wit hhives all over me so i had to give it up, celexa, wellbutrin, you name it i been on it, twice now i been on zoloft maybe this time my body chemisty will make it work, all they do is age out on me after a few weeks,
i tried provigil to help me stay awake b/c i have day/night sleep reversal from ahving scrwed up brain chemisty.
 
dont feel bad, i been there done that pal.
too many ops and too many problems in life with crazy families that made me this way. i didnt ask to be born into a nutty family, i stay away from them

 

I had to edit part of your post-please e mail me if you have any questions.  Take care

Hi Sheryl,

I don't know about the other meds you've been on, but prozac didn't do a lot for me -- calmed down the worst, but didn't get me back to my "normal" self -- still felt under par all the time. Strikes me that you may be on the wrong meds for *you* (different meds have different impacts for different people) -- you've been on them long enough that there should have been much more improvement. You need to talk to your doc about this if it's still the case (and I realise that things might have moved on a lot as your original post was some time ago).

I'm so sorry your post was left adrift. -- Only thing I can think of is that sometimes there are a lot of new posts -- a kind of post rush! -- and threads fall off the first page more quickly (it's happened a couple of times recently). I'm sure nobody would have wanted you to be left without help -- we *do* care, very much. By contrast, the bipolar forum's quite quiet a lot of the time -- doesn't mean people don't care, just that they're not there sometimes to respond.

We do give a darn, I promise, so please keep the faith and come back to us to let us know how you're doing.
