i made a promise to myself that when things got better I would post my story.
I am 7 weeks in on 50mg of Zoloft. i struggled alot up until now. Severe anxiety and crippling depression, I could not see any light at the end of the tunnel. I decided to go see a psychiatrist so they could help me with therapy but also the medication. I was having bad side effects from the Zoloft so we reduced to 25mg and I also went on a low dose of Zyprexa. Zyprexa is an anti psychotic for severe bi polar disorder. I dont have bi polar but in small doses in combination with anti depressants can be a good management system. Literally overnight after taking my first dose its like the clouds lifted! I was also prescribed sleeping tablets as my Dr reiterated to never under estimate sleep and how the lack of it can increase anxiety. I am by no means out of the woods yet but i have had a taste of my old self and I know I will only get better. Please do not ever think you are going to be stuck like this, believe me just only a week ago I too felt the same way. Hang in there, ask for help and always believe that there is light at the end.
