Hi everyone, Im new to this site.
I have had Depression for about
the last 4 years or so and was given Zoloft which I started out on 50 mg a day. That didnt seem to help so they raised it to 100 mg which after about
a month worked wonders for me. Well about
a month ago I started to have the same symptoms I had before I started meds. (racing thoughts, thoughts of death, i couldnt stand to be around my boyfriend almost like i hated him and I definitely do not, we have been together almost 6 years and he is a wonderful man, felt nervous, hopeless, worthless etc...) So I contacted the nurse practitioner that gives me my script
s and she raised my Zoloft to 150 mg. She told me if that didnt help to call her in a week and we would try something else. It didnt do anything so of course I called her and she gave me an appointment for the next day and I went in. When I got in there she had me take a test so I did and after I was finished I handed it to her and she went over the results and asked if anyone had ever told me that I may have a mild case of Bipolar, and of course I answered no. So she decided the best choice for me would to go back down to the 100 mg of Zoloft and she also prescribed me with Lamictal, starting with 25 mg once a day for 2 weeks, then 50 mg a day for 2 weeks, then 100 mg by week 5. Wednesday will be a week that I have been taking the Zoloft and Lamictal together and so far I seem to feel a bit better but I do have moments when I feel blah all over again. Would this be because the Lamictal hasnt really had a chance to work yet? Anyone else on something similar to this with good results? Im just hoping and praying that this will be a good combo for me and I can stop thinking so negatively and get back to loving my boyfriend, this is not fair to him as well.
I just want my life back!!!
Anyone with ANY feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
