It's actually funny you mentioned that, yes, she's had it done. She's allergic to so many antidepressant meds and even some benzos. I didn't know they could give her a rescue med, we've been scared to go in to the ER, fearing they would put her back on the psych floor again. It's been several years, but she was hospitalized for suicidal attempts after the death of our baby (while pregnant).
Since my last post, I had a thought pop into my head about her clonidine, so I did some research... I'm completely convinced that med has been making her worse! Almost every side effect I read, from using it while having anxiety and depression, fits what she's going through! So, she's stopping it tonight, shouldn't be a problem according to what I've read, the dose she's on is very low. In 4 days, there should be a change for the better if my theory is correct. It's not helping her, that's for sure. She has been saying she hates it, dries her out, makes her feel bad etc... it all makes sense now.... I'm praying this helps, because she's been getting worse every night she takes it. She's been sleeping worse every night, gets a bit worse every day... she sees her doctor on Thursday, so hopefully we will have good results to report. Over all, I pray that something helps give her a break, because I fear she will be the one to break soon... again, thank you for the replies! As for her replying to others, she's shy and would likely text someone, rather than post in a public forum. However, she'd probably only talk to an admin that has lots of experience in anxiety and dealing with it.
