    Amy on Jul, 27, 2014:

    I'm a 20 year old female. I'm currently taking Wellbutrin for my depression and Seroquel for biolar disorder. I told my doctor about my extreme social anxiety that I experience being around people. Any sort of social gathering. I can't even go to school anymore. She prescribed Zoloft, but it was only after I asked her if she would prescribe me Xanax. I haven't started the Zoloft and I'm actually kind of scared to. I just don't know what kind of effect it will have on me. I don't want to take a lot of medication that is affecting my brain chemistry. But if I knew it was guaranteed to help me amongst my other medications I would take it. It's kind of a gamble and there are risks involved. Has anybody my age taken these meds, or know what the outcome is? Please reply me if you have any suggestions.

  • Upon taking the Clonidine & melatonin before bedtime, this 4 year old develops severe knee clicking which seems to hurt her upon falling asleep. If she gets angry during the day she can involuntarily start the knee clicking. She is very double jointed.
