      Just the xanax I am seeing my psych Dr Monday to go over the GeneSight report I take the mirt and xanax for sleep as the xanax no longer works.I took mirt last year in reviewing my jornals of that time I noted that I was depressed but at that time I had a Dr switch me to lorazapam with no instuctions he also put me on celexa which did not work during this time i developed PMR so it was a perfect storm of a mess. So it is difficult to tell what was causing the depressed feeling

    I'm really glad to read this, Carol. You're obviously doing better. Keep letting us know if you need to talk anything through. I was on mirtazapine for quite a while, but am off it now. I thought it was very helpful, personally, but everyone is different. Have never tried xanax, probably because it isn't prescribed in the UK.

    Anyway it sounds like things are on the up for you. Me, too. I'm steadily decreasing my diazepam and managing to sleep, whch has really surprised me. Keep at it!
