    I want to change meds

    I have been taking Trazodone, Zoloft, Levothyroxin, Rosuvastatin for cholesterol and Clonezepam for over 2 yrs. The zoloft lost its potency a while back. I think 2 yrs.

It doesn't take a genius to figure it out. I more or less raised my voice to her and she was supposed to get back to me that day....

    I'm a 17-year old boy living in Ukraine. I think I'm depressed. I have a very anxious mood most of the day, apathic periods, and other symptoms. I cry at night, always close the door, even when I'm alone. I also lost interest in my previous hobbies of drawing and sculpting. I always feel down, like everything I do is pointless. I escape into videogames and online D&D forums. I've also noticed that I've begun to overeat. I have looked at scientific articles and works on the....

    Loss of balance during anxiety attacks

    I went into this year thinking everything was going to be great, and that I was finally going to overcome the monster that is anxiety. Now, three months into the year, I'm borderline agoraphobic, scared to even go to the grocery store because my panic attacks have been out of control as of late. I've been reading Barry McDonagh's "DARE," where it tells you to essentially invite the anxiety to happen, which is great, but when your anxiety causes you to become unbalanced ("loss....

    I have been dealing with depression for 6 years and I have been emotionally and physically on a downward spiral for a long time. Recently I have been trying to do better at school ( I am in high school) but every time I do I feel like I don't actually deserve to be better and that I'm just a little goddamned screw-up. I can't do anything right. Does anyone have any advice to sticking on the right path, Really I just want to cry and eat cupcakes.

    I am switching meds.

    For the longest time i was prescribed Trazodone. My doc said that drug was the best sleeper and you don't get addicting to it. Along the way he put me on Sertraline for depression. Well I gave it well over a year. Not working anymore. My psych is looking for another depression med. My mind went to either Rexulti or Tintellix. I read about Rexulti, too many side effects and you can gain weight...no way. I have a discount drug plan that my meds cost for couple of dollars for each. Also on Levothyroid....
