So i have been battling depression and now pretty debilitating anxiety for about 8 months now.
Battling against going on an antidepressant as ive tried one- zoloft and hated it- lasted 3 days. Tried trazadone - 1 night- 25 mg, and was zombie liike the next day
So for these reasons I am really resistant to starting an antidepressant because of intolerance (i believe anyways) and simply because depression is new for me now that im 53 and menopausal.
Prior- i never had anxiety nor depression, just normal mood swings.
Are there any women out there who have truly benefitted from any particular AD that you really felt worked?
Im challenged by sleep also this is a biggie, so i truly dont know which one to ask for.
Im in the medical field, and the doc knows that im noncompliant so hes a little irritated that im not doing anything about it and im suffering
big time..i mean its day to day with the anxiety harsh anxiety in my chest, and the lowest of moods..now and then i get a lift and im normal, then i sink down again.
My confusion is that i know its all hormonal but then again the hormones are responsible maybe to a degree of the management and production of the neurotransmitters.
Help if anyone has suggestions.
