Good morning! I am looking for the right treatment/medication, to help manage my GAD
& MDD. I am overwhelmed, frustrated and overall, feel as though I'm losing my mind. Started taking Viibrd last Summer, felt great, but didn't like the sexual side effects. My doctor switched me to Trintellix (2months) and so far, I am NOT feeling better and I think I may be allergic to the medication. I will be seeing my PCP on Wednesday, so we can discuss another option. Is there a particular drug that you would recommend to treat my disorders? I'm also looking to add
Some sort of talk therapy into my treatment, but unsure as to seek a psychologist or psychiatrist? Thank you for your help.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: Yes, I am seeing a doctor, but unfortunately he is not in my network (insurance), so I'll be seeeing someone new starting in March. I currently take: a multivitamin, Montelukast (10mg), Flonase (50mcg), Fish Oil, Trazodone (50mg) and Trintellix (10mg).....
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?
Customer: I'm not sure what you mean, but I may have OCD too. It's not extreme, but I've been told by family, that I do. I've have had one major panic
attack that landed me in the hospital, about 5 years ago.
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?
Customer: I'm not exactly sure how long I've been "dealing" with this, but have become more aware of my symptoms since my divorce in 2011-12. Symptoms are best when I feel my life is in "control" and everyone/everything around me is good. Symptoms get worse when I feel my life is out of control, stress
is high or my confidence is shaken. My mind is constantly working, effecting my sleep. I worry too much about EVERYTHING! I have a mentally challenging career, working with the public.
