Depression

Thursday, September 13, 2012

I have struggled with depression for the last several years and thought that I had finally won the battle. I found a medication that didn't make me feel "out of body" and like a robot and felt like living life again. The last couple of months though have been really tough and I don't know why. I don't like upping medication, but I may have to.... I've been crying every day for two weeks now and just generally feeling awful. Even taking my dogs for a walk doesn't seem to lift my mood. I wish (like all other illnesses) that we could just find a cure so that I could get back to my upbeat, happy self.

    I really hope you are feeling better since this post. I have struggled with depression since I was 16, and unfortunately I can not take meds. If you need someone to talk to shoot me an email or something. :)

    Sometimes there needs to be a meds change, as you know. Sometimes it's the dosage.

    Have you discussed it with your prescribing doctor?

    I had been on Citalopram (an SSRI) for a while, and it was just not doing the trick. Of course, I had to wean off it, to try a new med -- Cymbalta. But it sure makes a difference! Cymbalta does something not only with the Seratonin levels, but also adrenaline, I think it is. This combo is working much better for me.

    If you trust your doc, and he/she is good, they should work with you till you get it right.

    All the best, and huge huggggs too,
