Making the switch back to celexa. Effexor was a great drug, especially for depression. It caused me terrible insomnia, and my dr added trazadone to fix that. And that's where the nightmare began. I ended up in ER, I suspect serotonin syndrome. And after many calls to my dr, and cries for help, he finally discontinued, I WAS NOT OKAY, AND he wasn't listening. I demanded to be sent to a pyschiatrist. He said 6mnths-a yr waiting list, I said NOW...so he got me in within a week. And I feel a backlash by both dr's for going over and above. My dr insisted I continue trazadone for 6 weeks before labeling it failed trtmnt, hence why i ended up at ER, with the worst symptoms, that were beyond my control, which impaired my memory, my cognitive thinking, and my ability to have proper judgement, suicide is never an option, but I felt my thought process was impaired, and ready and willing to do anything to get out. And sobbed for days upon days, I will never forget that feeling of having no control, and that my dr wasn't listening. Seen the pschiatrist. He switched me back to celexa, and suggested clonazapam b.i.d.~p.r.n. I am worried about the switch, and perhaps should have stayed with effexor, in combo with clonazapam.
