Hello, I am Dr Vikas (M.D Psychiatry)and I’ll try to help you.
Have you consulted a doctor for this
tried any medicines?
I have talked to a general doctor who has asked me to keep a calendar, as to determine if it is bc of my period
i am on klonipon and vibryyd
May I know about the dose of these medicines you are currently taking?
1mg of klonipin although im only supposed to take .5 as needed...i usually take 1 a day and 20mg of vybrrd
OK, but you still feel that you are depressed. Have you tried the higher dose of Viibryd?
i;ve tried 40 off and on. but i fight with my gf alot and she says that i seem unhappy all the time and that its making her unhappy
The usual dose range is from 20 -40 mg and those patients who are not responding to 20 mg respond well to 40 mg per day.
so now i feel guilty for her feeling like my unhappiness is her fault ..which is totally codependent i know
everyone is responsible for their own happiness...i know this and have told her that
I can understand and I agree with you totally in this.
Have you ever tried Psychotherapy specially Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
because, CBT can be more helpful in comparison to medicines in your case in my view.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy can bring long lasting benefit in your thinking pattern and the resultant depression and negativity.
no i have not.....but i have alot of ocd issues and anxiety...constantly worring, feeling guilty about the past and present, skin picking
well, in that case, you should try CBT in my view.
would you like to try online CBT from your home.
yes...how would that work?
well, there is website where you can try free online CBT
i love my gf but our relationship started off rocky and we both suck at expressing ourselves properly and not being codependent
i just want to take a long nap and start over
what is the website...bc i cry all the time and i'm angry alot
OK, here is the link where you can know more about CBT
I am giving you the link to that website now
I think, CBT in combination with medicine should be very helpful specially in your case.
are you able to see the website?
OK, just try it and hopefully you will notice a great improvement very shortly in your symptoms and thinking pattern.
how do i sign up for it online?

ok...it is free?
how do i get through the next weeks
I guess it is free for public. :)
No, MoodGYM is provided free of charge to the public.
I see, you are trying to rate my answer and close the chat?
are you satisfied with my answer?
do you have any other question to ask?
it didnt releive my anxiety as much as i would have liked...i feel like this is more of a referral than a chat
May I know what exactly you want to know or how I can help you more?
