Well I have been on and off anti-depressants since I was a teenager. When I was a teenager I was severely depressed and the meds helped a lot. When I tried meds as an adult, I was just mildly depressed and didn't notice much difference. Well because of everything I am going through with David, I pretty much meet text book criteria for depression at this point, no doubt. So I went to the doc today and got prescribed Effexor XR. I have taken effexor before when I was just mildly depressed and didn't notice a big change and couldn't afford it without insurance. But at the higher doses it is indicated for anxiety as well, so I am going to try that. Wish me luck. I didn't even ask for anything for anxiety like xanax because 1. I can't really function on them and 2. I'll be damned if I am going to play the hide-the-pills and count-the-pills game with my own medication in my own house!!
