Well, I went to the doctor today and told him I have been feeling sad and having panic attacks again along with being sooooo exhausted and wanting to do nothing but sleep! I also told him everything that was going on in my life right now...and for those of you who may not have read my prior post, my huge stressors include a death in the family, selling my house, moving back in with my parents and waiting to close on my new house (all in a matter of 2 and a 1/2 weeks)...but it isn't just myself - I am married and have 2 small children. For those of you who have read my prior post, sorry for repeating.
So anyway, he switched me from my Effexor XR to Cymbalta about a month and a half ago. I am on 60 mg of the Cymbalta. He decided that he did not want to increase my Cymbalta because of me being so stinking tired all of the time but instead switch my meds yet again. I also take xanax .5mg twice a day too. He gave me a prescription for Klonopin in place of the xanax.
According to my doctor, he said I could just quit the 60 mg of Cymbalta and start the Celexa the folowing day. I have read through a lot of the older posts and from what I have read, I don't like what I saw about Celexa. Also, when I went to the Celexa website, it didn't say anything about treating panic disorder, just depression. I have both and need something that is going to treat both of them.
So, here we go again, I am terrified once more to have to switch my meds with so much going on right now along with the holidays coming up. I feel like I am caught between a rock and a hard place.
I feel like I am being a BIG baby, but I need some encouragement!!
Thanks for letting me vent and sorry so long!!!!
I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much.
Dx: Anxiety, Depression
RX: Cymbalta 60 mg, Xanax .5 mg
