Little insight...I am a 27 year old male with two young children. You and your husband should be very greatfull to have each other through this. To shed some light on the situation, I have been on the following medications off and on since 2003:
I have been on xanax, paxil, cymbalta, buspirone, clomipramine (had to go to e.R. On this stuff after one dose), clonazepan, mirtazipine, zoloft, zyprexa, seroquel, prozac, celexa, toprol xl and welbutrin. I currently take 20 mg of lexapro, 0.5 mg of risperdal, 20 mg of prilosec and 10 mg of ambien for sleep. However, I feel I am getting no better. I have been on the Lexapro since 2/11/07 and feel it has caused me to have panic attacks and feel more on edge. I must be sensitive to all of these medications.
I have decided to taper off all my medications and go a different route. Nothing has worked so far, so I might as well have a clean slate. If you would like to know, I will be taking a "First Cleanse" program, Goldenseal, Cranberry Juice, Lot's of water, a multi vitamin and staying away from my horrible habits of caffeine and chewing tobacco. While doing this, I plan to somehow make myself sleep for like four days straight to let my mind rest.
After this test, I will submit for an MRI, all thyroid and thyroid antibodies testings, submit saliva tests for adrenal, cortisol and testosterone levels to rule out those things and then will try and see an ENT to look at the possiblity of having Labyrinthitus or Meneire's disease. Neurologist maybe a little ways down the line as well.
Let me know what you think. Hang in there and if I can help in anyway, please let me know. I will keep you updated on my findings to see if we can't work this all out together.
