Hi. I know meds effect everyone differently. I was on Effexor XR several 20 ago and it worked out well. I took it for 2 years and didn't have to take anything else until 2008. Enter Lexapro. Pooped out about 2013. Started back on venlefaxine ER (generic Effexor) and have been on it since. I'm thinking it's pooped out also. I have MDD, recurrent. Once diagnosed w/Dysthymia. I just know there's ALWAYs an element of depression in my mood. Not one day since Feb,2008 has there been a day w/o it. Also dx'd w/Panic d/o,Anxiety d/o.
What has been the best AD you've been on and how long did it last for you? Are they all doomed to poop out?
Thanks for any info you can give me. I'm trying to find some real life experiences with meds other people have taken. I've been to AskAPatient but there's always 5 horror stories to 4 good reports. I believe sometimes there are people who put posts up just to scare folks.
I've been heartbroken. Very heartbroken. I only feel safe posting this here.I started to like a guy at my job beginning of March 2018. I knew at that time he was leaving to go back home 800 miles away. Nonetheless, I reached out to him and finally admitted my feelings which he admitted his. I really felt something for him. I really liked him, he fit every category for me. Attractive, good...
I am in college far away from home and I feel very lonely. I don’t have any friends here or anyone to talk to here. I go to lunch alone; I spend all my time alone. It’s making me very sad and depressed each day. I spend days without saying a word to anyone. Sometimes I just feel like life is not worth it anymore and it’s just too much....
