Hello, I've been prescribed Atarax, before that I had been taking baclofen for pain. I have anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, and have recently been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. I have good days and I have bad days. Today is not a good day, and I feel like I can insane just inside my own head, even though my life is great at the moment. Some days I just can't escape my psych, although I want with all of my heart to just be normal. Been doing PTSD therapy along with many other psych therapies and it's all work very well. I just feel really hopeless on days I can't beat my mind. SO I'm in a lot of pain today, and seem to be wound pretty tight. Anything said to me I feel like could set me off at any moment. I need something more than just Atarax, and Effexor(depression&anxiety) maybe an antipsychotic... idk and there's a 6 month wait list to get in with any psychiatrists in my area of living. All I have today are baclofen, Atarax, and Effexor XR. Will these drugs together cause any adverse affects? Make you feel "high", or cause reason for an ER visit? I know dowsiness is supposed to be an affect but none of these medicines alone make me feel any bit of drowsy. Has anyone that has taken these drugs together make it out alive? Any advise will help, thank you!
been totally and suddenly cut off of my Xanax because the test every one of them said I had none in my system and I know this is absolutely not so I am very upset they gave me a new phyciatrist and when I went to meet her for the first time she didn't say high by yada yada yada she went right into attacking me
My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 3 years. I have tried to go off of my Viibryd in case I do get pregnant but I relapsed into deep depression. My fertility doctor would like to try 3 months of letrozole to help me get pregnant. He is very optimistic that if I try this medicine I will get pregnant. I think I have decided that it is best if I stay on my Viibryd even if I do get pregnant but I am very concerned about birth defects. I don't want to hurt my baby but if I sink back into a major depressive episode I will not be able to take care of myself. I have not been able to find any data about mothers who have taken Viibryd while they are pregnant. Thank you very very much for anyone who responds!

32 year old woman married since 2006 who had a son in 2014. Conditions are well-managed via psychiatrist, counseling, medication, and lifestyle changes. I'm considering changing my birth control since accidentally skipping a dose has significant effects on my mood and because I suspect I do not respond well to estrogen.
Hello all. I am struggling with treatment-resistant depression with anxiety and have for 40+ years. I currently take Effexor XR, klonopin, ambien, lamictal, and Tylenol w/codeine 4. I blithely tried zubsolv given to me by a relative who takes it and in 10 minutes, I felt better than I have in years. While I have never gone to the streets for opiates, I have taken advantage of hydroco done when prescribed (and when offered by friends) and then switched to Tylenol 4. I take the 2 per day I am prescribed but will take up to 4 a day if I can. I have tried to get a dr. to prescribe zubs or subs off-label as it INSTANTLY relieved my depression, took care of my pain, and negated the need for the Tylenol 4, klonopin, and Ambien. For 3 weeks I took zubs, then had to come off. Since then (I stopped over 6 weeks ago and never took more than half of an 8.5/1.36 or something like that) my depression has been relentless, along with loose bowels every day. My question is, has anyone used zubs mainly for depression, and to eliminate other meds? I can't find a doctor who will help me and was told today that I "don't meet the criteria for chemical dependency" by the most liberal clinic around. I don't even know whether zubs are the right idea; I'm just desperate to feel better. - Desperate.
My 15 yr old grandson has major anxiety, depression and has lost 15 lbs in a very short time. He's 5'8" and weighs 124 lbs. I adore his mom, my former DIL. (She works for a pharmaceutical co.) She is open minded but has no time for research. I'm so afraid that his pediatrician will prescribe an anti-depressant. We know what these do to our brains, especially adolescents. He is visiting us for a few days and got great results with EFT last night. I just gave him one Lactobacillus Sporogenes today. Late yesterday, he took L-Theonate Magnesium, Nordic Naturals omega 3, SOL CBD oil, L-Theanine, Health Concerns brand Ease Plus and Calm Spirit (Chinese herbs from my neurofeedback dr.) Can anyone think of something else or anything that will help keep him off of psych drugs? TIA
Hello All, I have been taking Cellcept 2000mg since 2014. I have a long history of Clinical Depression but now on top of that, I am dealing with a terminal lung issue and CC is part of my treatment. I don't know if the CC is causing me to be more depressed, but suspect that is the case. I am wondering how many others may have this going on and are there any coping ideas or medications that may help? Wishing you all the best!
