After my psych recommended abilify or cymbalta, I found out I have a thyroid issue going on that could be causing some of my anxiety and depression issues. So instead of changing meds, I added a new med for my thyroid. My GP did not want me changing too much at one time which is understandable. But I'm so tired of struggling to get through the days. Occasionally I will have a good day or two, then followed by anxiety and crying. It takes weeks to get the thyroid leveled out, and that may not even be my problem. Now I'm having to take klonopin every 2 or 3 days, and am worried about addiction to that. Frankly abilify and cymbalta both scare me. Anyone have any good experiences switching from one ssri to another? My GP suggested prozac. Just the thought of waiting for the thyroid to level out, and then switching to another antidepressant that may or may not work has me really down.
