Hello To All,
I'm new to this site, but certainly not new to depression, although, I wish none of us were. I was dx'd when I was 20 and have been on amiltriptyline (elavil) for over 30 years. Recently my psychiatrist added lexapro 10mg, because of some life changes such as, my dad passing away, three surgeries, etc...
I am anxious to get to know all of you and I hope I can add something to the group. If nothing else, senority. lol I can still laugh sometimes. Night time is always better for me. It's not because I can't sleep. 200mg of emiltriptyline takes care of that. I simply feel better at night. Maybe because nothing is expected of my at night. Everyone is in bed and the house is quiet. I have pushed it a little far tonight/tomorrow, since it's almost 5:00 a.m.
I will be honest. I have a fourth surgery coming up Monday and I'm very anxious about that. Now would be a good time to tell you I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks, also.
I don't know my way around the site and if anyone sees something I am doing wrong, please tell me. I won't bore you going on and on, but is you have any questions feel free to ask.
Wishing all the very best....Connie
