Hi, thank you for your response,
The max. dosage I was on for Prozac was 40-60 and 300 for Effexor - it seems to me the generic meds don't work for me, thus when in Canada, when the patents are up, our medicares system only covers generic, then they seem to stop working. Quite frankly, they all seem to stop working after a year or so which sometimes corresponds to the patent time. Effexor was the best but I had quite uncomfortable side-effects; sweating
, blood pressure problems, but it helped the best for depression, fatigue, energy.
I have been on Wellbutrin, 300mg., for a year too (as a counterbalance to sexual side-effects of the Cipralex). I am in Canada - I believe it may be Lexapro in US?
I only been on Wellbutrin, 300mg. alone once, and it seemed to worsen my anxiety.
My biggest issues are anxiety, fatigue, lack of energy, stress
management. I have also put on 25 pounds this year, since being on the Cipralex.
I only seem to get majorly depressed,occasionaly, as a result I believe of the anxiety and obsessive compulsive/ruminations the anxiety can bring on. When I do become depressed it is very bad - I have been virtually bedridden a few times for approx. 6 months in the last 10 years. I was also off work those times on disabiliity. I definately know I cannot handle stress. I have moved, changed careers lifestyle etc. to manage that, which has helped to some degree. As has therapy.
