Why so many discussions on Anxiety and less on Depression?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I see so many folks dealing with Anxiety issues these days. There must be 10 times the number of posts over there as here. Interesting.

I have both conditions, which are related of course. So I follow-up on posts in both forums. But as I'm dealing mainly with Depression these days it'd be great to see more posts here.

Anyone know why the difference in the number of posts?

    For me the many meds that I have tried over the last year have all caused anxiety sometimes unbearable.  I have over 6 months with Prozac and still in bed with anxiety.  However, depression is better.

      I took Prozac 20 years ago and it worked so well. This time it has not. I feel terrible most of the time although the depression is better, the anxiety causes me all sorts of problems. I have also tried about 7 other ADs in the past year. 

      I am just about ready to consider TMS. I have read about it and spoken with my dr briefly. It is now approved by the FDA. I want to give Flu a chance but it’s been 27 weeks and I rarely have a good day.

      I agree with all you say about prozac, for me it was a devil drug.  I am still not better having tried many other anti deps.

      i think you must be in usa if tms is approved.  It is only available in London here and is very costly.

      i would be very grateful if you could keep me updated on your progress here as i will be hopefully following your line of attack.  If TMS works well then i am willing to pay to have it  done as nothing else has worked.

      please keep in touch

      Ann, I will keep you updated. I will talk to my dr toward the end of the month. He will probably want me to stay with Flu for a while longer. I’ll let you know what he says about TMS
