I am seriously considering ECT for severe depression and and a major anxiety disorder that is treatment resistant, except for Ativan. I am currently taking up to 5 mg a day of Ativan due to a bad experience with Lexapro. Trying to get back down to 3 mg but still having Lexapro withdrawals. Could ECT stop the record groove obsession I have about being in this situation? Stop the depression long enough so I can see this through a different perspective. My husband is watching me very carefully now due to the suicidal ideation I had over the weekend. We are very concerned and just want a somewhat normal life back. Please help if you have had a similar experience.
