I have been reading the posts for some time now so I thought it was time to introduce myself.  I am 35 years old and have PTSD, anxiety, depression, insomnia, IBS and bouts of fatigue and body/joint aches (undiagnosed).  My anxiety has been thru the roof lately for various reasons and that has been my main struggle lately.  I currently take lexapro, nortriptyline, trazodone and was recently given buspar for my anxiety. I am so glad that I found this site - there are issues and people that I can relate to.Other people just don't get it sometimes. I am currently not in a crisis (unlike yesterday) - just wanted to say "hi".  Maybe my buspar is starting to work in only 1 week?? tongue    Hope everybody is also feeling well.

Hi Austin73,

And welcome to Healingwell. Sorry you have been feeling poorly lately, and your anxiety is giving you grief. Maybe you are one of the lucky ones who's meds kick in quickly for them, I know my daughter had great success with Zoloft and it worked quickly for her too. Welcome to the board, and keep posting, we are here for you anytime.

My daughter is also on this Zoloft and it works great for her
I am thinking Nanners could be right about you having the metabolism that may .........make meds wokk faster..........or you are very hopeful and thats a good thing 
Cait takes 150 mgs per day as she was self harming some time ago and is now doing SOOOOOOOOO much better..........
