Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. Your question is not closed until you are satisfied. I am happy to assist you with your question.
I am so sorry that you are having such difficulty. I know that several of my patients who have not responded to the SSRI class of medications, have done well on a mood stabilizer, such as Lamictal (lamotrigine). You may wish to ask your doctor about that.
would that help with my anxiety ive heard of the tablet what do you think of what im doing going cold turkey im hoping things settle down i no a lot of it is my thoughts and controling them
Lamictal is not known to help with anxiety, so you may need to take something else, such as Pristiq for the anxiety. Please do not go off the SSRI cold turkey. You need to transfer to the mood stabilizer while you are still on the SSRI and then titrate off. You also need something to address the anxiety. This should be under a doctor's supervision. Please see the doctor without delay.
