With both my prescriptions about to run out I have a tough choice to make. I was given Lexapro, which has made me worse. I quit taking it yesterday. And Valium, which has been helpful, but only in a dangerously addictive sort of helpful. I made an appointment with my GP to talk about being put back on Wellbutrin. Granted, I had a few problems with it last time, but it really helped me get out of my severe depression. However, that decision was not well received by my family. "They're just going to put you on more of those awful drugs"! Was the response I got. They want to take me for acupuncture, which I agreed I would like to try, but that's just it, I've never tried it. And I need relief NOW. I have to choose between one or the other over the weekend. Do I have them gladly take me to get poked with needles or begrudgingly take me to get pills?? I'm really doing badly right now. I feel really under pressure to make the right choice. Any input on the issue would be helpful. Also if anyone has tried acupuncture for depression, please let me know how it went.
