I'm seeing gp about my depression so I'm aware that she's starting me on something new tomo but not sure which one I've been on prozac for 13half years and stopped working for me so went on Mirtazapine for 6 to 8 wks and did nothing for me but didn't wean off any so then straight onto sertraline 50mg was having really bad side affects gp said I was have withdrawal from the other and put me back on Mirtazapine for 2wks but took 30 down to 15 but tomorrow I don't know what gp got planned for me. But I just wanted some back up on other medication that can help run long side new one. OH I JUST STARTED TO TAKE VITIMAN D. HOPING WITH THESE DARK MORNING AND EVENING IT WILL HELP??

      Yes I find that with the Dr I've seen. She's seems to think take the antidepressants and by nxt wk you will be OK. And I can go back to work. Mmmm I don't think she as suffered with depression or anxiety. It's the worse thing going. Today I feel tensed shakes and feel like I've got the butterfly feeling in my tummy and putting me on edge.
