Just a quick background........
I was taking just Effexor-----Still depressed :(
So we double the effexor-------still depressed :(
So we added Lexapro----not as bad, but still depressed :cry:
We added Lithium------ Mood leveled out, still not happy and now nervous and anxious as hell !:con:
Now......Let add Paxil slowly, while slowly reducing the Lexapro :huh:
I feel like a drug machine here...Open up and let me pour more shit down your throat! :f: :f:
I know........I am being impatient, I am just sick of it.
Thanks for listening

Aaargh, Melissa,

I don't blame you for feeling fed up!

If you find the right combination it will have been worth it though.....

love Jillie xxxxxxxxxxx

I think it's also important to keep a sense of humor about the whole ordeal. Keep being self-deprecating about being a "drug machine" ... it is VERY frustrating, but you can do it!

I use humor alot.....My therapist says that is my coping mechanism and my way to avoid answering a difficult question. Of course I already knew that! :lol:

if I didn't laugh about it, I'd start crying and NEVER stop.

hang in there, maybe they'll hit the right combo soon.

hugs,
