I have bi-polar disorder and have been taking Lamictal with good results. I also take Klonopin for anxiety and it takes the edge off w/o making me sleepy. I still struggle with depression. I have taken MANY antidepressants over the last 20-some-odd years with varying degrees of success. None have worked well without huge compromises in other areas of my well-being. I'm sick to death of playing pill roulette. The latest candidate is Cymbalta. My psy assured me it would produce negligable side-effects if any. Instead, I found I became a good, old-fashioned, B-movie zombie. I even got lost on the way to the docs office yesterday! I've only made that drive...ohhhh...maybe a HUNDRED times! So where's the answer? Help me out here, please! Herbal concoctions, accupuncture, past-life regression, voo-doo witch doctor intervention...I am open to even the most ridiculous of suggestions. Just don't say the word "prescription", please.
