Thanks Toni for the reply .
Well, since you are well settled on the present anti depressants -- pristiq and trazadone , then there is no need to change them , you shall continue on the medications , but , for your overwhelming stress and anxiety which i believe is taking a toll on your relationship with your beloved little one , i would recommend you to add 1 Anti anxiety drug such as either Klonopin ( clonazepam ) or Buspar ( buspirone ) , ask your doctor to choose any one of the two mentioned , and also decide on the dose and time of intake of the chosen anti anxiety drug , preferably you need to be started on a low dose , to be taken at night only , after 1 week or so , your psychiatrist may increase the dose and make it two times a day.
Addition of klonopin or buspar to the present regime of Pristiq and trazadone , will be able to control your stress and anxiety , and also will prevent any emotional swings that you may be harboring , and thus tranquilize your mind.
I am quite sure that addition of the anti anxiety drug will be able to alleviate your present symptoms , and you will be able to have a whale of a time with your son. Meanwhile you get started on the anti anxiety drug , also look for a good psychologist in your area , who can start you on Cognitive behavioural therapy ( CBT ) , which is the best type of psychotherapy ( counseling ) used in the treatment of depression and anxiety .Plus it is a short duration therapy , held in a friendly yet professional setting , and this shall help in cutting down on your present medications in the future .
So, i suggest you discuss the above mentioned regime with your prescribing doctor , and get started on it.
I wish you best of health , and all the best to your family. God bless..
