I would like to try something besides Zoloft any recommendations.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Dear friend,

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

I believe that I can help.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Ask your physician to switch you to bupropion (Wellbutrin) which is an antianxiety medication and antidepressant and NOT of the SSRI class.

Customer: Well that is great, but I believe pharm management is in order at his time. Can you help me with that?
Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

It is also used for ADD.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

The best thing about bupropion is that it does NOT cause weight gain and does not cause sexual side effects.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Your crossover needs to be managed by your prescribing physician.

Customer: i did. A trial of Wellbutrin and the side effects were bad.. I had a lot of anger so I stopped it.
Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Did you stop your other drug cold turkey?

Customer: And went bak to XXXXX have stopped that as well... My son was on vey anise and that semed to help.
Customer: vyvanse
Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Vyvanse is purely for ADHD.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Adults or children.

Customer: right but it hekped me. I tried it.
Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Will your physician give it to you?

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Did it increase your anxiety?

Customer: not aure haven't asks kit did not increase my anxiety
Customer: sure
Customer: asked I mean
Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Asked who about your anxiety. That is for you to tell rather than ask. If the Vyvanse has helped you then you should try to get a prescription for yourself.

Customer: ok, which physician should I ask
Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

What is your choice? Ask the one that seems to be the most helpful and flexible.
