I am curious as to how to determine how much depression, how much anxiety.... and how to go about dealing with medication?
I have been on antidepressants for years and did increase my dosage for winter months (SAD--- way too dismal and bleak after New Year with short dark days and negative let downs of post holiday joys) Plus my husband just died the end of January. Obviously I am still on it . I did recently spend some time with another man who did seem to notice that my mood is actually pretty good and positive... but I do have moments I am not clear on what to expect and tend to spaz and get overwhelmed... Said he sees more anxiety.
I know they usually wean you off the anti Ds.... I am wondering if anyone knows if I could go to a very low dose... and how is anxiety dealt with? Meds when felt needed? Or always as a precaution?I would appreciate any feedback...
