I've been suffering anxiety and depression for most of my life but just over a year ago the zoloft (which was the perfect drug for me stopped working). Since then they've tried just about every drug chopping and changing so much that my life has been an endless mess of withdrawals, tears and anxiety. I was starting to feel better on my current meds until 2 weeks ago when I started sleeping 12hrs a day and started crying endlessly. I've now been told the zyprexa they put me on is known to cause depression (so why put a depressed person on it in the first place?) I have had that cut down and increased my anti depressant as well as being told to put my clonazepam withdrawal on hold by my current pdoc. (He didn't start the zyprexa as he was o/seas at the time it was his colleague.
Now I've gotten so down it looks like hospital again if the health fund will pay. I'm so sick of it all, my kids continously have to deal with this and my son just questioned why I was pouring water from the jug into a cup over the toaster that was on. I wasn't even aware I was doing it.
I just feel so crap, why can't the doctors work it out I'm so sick of being sick I just want my life back, healthy and being able to be a mum.
has anyone else been here and if so what did you do or try to get yourself better?

Keep questioning what the doctors say - keep asking for help. I've been suffering from depression for 6 years - and suffering from anxiety forever! The meds are a help. Have you tried CBT? it worked for me for a while - but it's no good now. I'm beyond 'feeling positive' and need some concrete stuff to sort my head out.

I want my life back too - I'm glad to hear I'm not alone.

Hope you can sort your doctors out.

Welcome to the forum,I am very glad that you found us and I am sure you will find the support that you are looking for.

It took my doctor about 5 tries with different meds in order to find the ones that worked for me. Everyone is different therefore the meds may affect you different than they would the next person.

You need to keep in constant contact with your doctor,and I would also do your own research on meds so that you are well informed.

I am very sorry that you are going through such a hard time. I hope things start getting better.

Keep us updated and stay strong
