Hope for success

Postby Sunflower0629 » Thu Dec 12, 2019 5:02 am

I’ve only been taking antidepressants for 1 year but I still haven’t found what worked for me. I’m currently on lamictal and cymbalta (on cymbalta for 6 weeks and lamictal for 5 days) and I’m really hoping that this will help me. I’ve been on at least 15-20 different meds the past year and I was doing well on one but I had side effects and I had to be taken off of it. And has anyone ever thrown up after latuda because when I was on it I’d throw up multiple times a week? Anyway has anyone had luck on these meds? Because my old psych told me that it’s my attitude that’s the issue but really that’s not the case because I’m trying to stay positive but I recently switched psychs. Hoping for the best

Hold on tight to that hope. I know that some meds helped to 'take the edge off' my depression and anxiety. Sometimes the anxiety would build into panic. It felt like I couldn't breathe and at times, felt like I was having a heart attack.

There was no fast-acting or miracle med. The chemistry takes time to build-up and change patterns. I was on old-school Imipramine and Buspar. Behavior change was helped by 12-step recovery meetings. It took years of therapy for recovery, but it did get better. A lot better from where I started.

Being told that it is 'attitude' is very unprofessional. I'm glad that you have moved on to another psych. It helped me to find one that went through similar issues as I did.
There are alternatives, like ECT, etc if meds don't help.
Best of luck to you. :D
