  1. I’m wondering when most people take Prozac. I’ve been taking mine at night before bed and going to sleep but if it would work better in the morning I would like to know. Can you share your experience with Prozac please?
  2. I’m on 25mg Seroquel IR. It’s supposed to help with my anxiety but it’s causing me to sleep through my alarms and be late for work. Being late, rushing, and feeling like I’m not a valuable employee is one of my triggers for an attack. So I don’t think it’s helping. I’ve been on it since Monday (today is Friday) and I called my Dr’s office this morning. They said I could stop taking it and be able to talk to my Dr on Monday. I don’t know. Should I stick with it through the weekend? I just hate being such a waste and the sedating effect makes me feel like I can’t get anything done.
  3. I’m new: Where do I post to talk about a new medication that I don’t like? Started Seroquel this week and I feel terrible.

      If you have questions or concerns about a med, post on one of the forums for that class of drug. To talk about seroquel,  start a thread on the antipsychotics forum,  which you can find under the meds section in the index on the front page of CB.

      Thank you, much appreciated

  4. I have to take Wellbutrin 3x a day. It’s been hard to keep up so I set alarms. If I can’t take it immediately I try to repeat in my head that I need to take it. That’s been working so far. I hope that helps.
  5. Yes please share the type of lamp you bought. After reading this earlier today I tried searching on Amazon and was a bit over-whelmed.
  6. I’m feeling better today. Leg is twitchy and I woke up super late but other than that everything seems okay.  

  7. I suggest maybe looking for places to volunteer regularly. Like perhaps a museum. That way it’s a little bit like work. People as they get older tend to become friends with their coworkers. I think for anyone it can be hard to maintain friendships from your youth. Just keep your head up and keep trying.
  8. It doesn’t seem like this site is very social but of course that’s not surprising either.

      People don’t often reply to status updates. I don’t think it’s you personally or the site, they just seem more overlooked than threads or journals.

      I appreciate that


  9. I wasn’t diagnosed until 2011. I tried several medications that didn’t work but finally started Wellbutrin in 2014. It worked and then it became less and less effective. My doctor upped my prescription. It worked for a year and then I felt that it just didn’t work at all. I decided last year that I would stop taking everything. It was maybe seven months of pure depression and anxiety. I was a self-hating angry mess and a self-made puddle of tears all the time. I could be happy but then quickly get back into the hole of depression in a few minutes. I’ve been back on Wellbutrin for the last two months at the lowest dosage. I can honestly say that, in my experience, being without medication, even if you exercise and practice yoga, have a loving supportive spouse, a dog, gainful employment; all doesn’t matter if your brain is working against you. I tried going without and was suicidal. I don’t know if I answered your question but all I know is my own experience. I’m better on medication.
  10. I seriously don’t know what to do right now. Been not working at work all week now, day three. I’ve sent a few emails and responded but done nothing else. 

  11. I’m afraid of being embarrassed or being put in an embarrassing situation. I’m afraid of people not liking me. I’m afraid of being misunderstood. I’m an adult and I’m afraid of being made fun of.
  12. I’ve been dealing with major depressive disorder and anxiety for several years now. I’ve read a lot of books on psychology and neurology. But I’ve only recently started seeing a psychiatrist. I was getting prescriptions from general physicians. Currently I’m on Wellbutrin and it works great for my depression but my anxiety still shows up. I told my doctor that it feels like an under-lying current. The anxiety is constant but I keep it at bay. He prescribed me Seroquel 25mg. Today is my second day on it. I don’t think I really knew how to describe my anxiety before today because today my brain feels silent. It’s like before there was a constant negative voice, my own voice - I guess, that would always repeat any negative thought I ever had. All my doubts were vocalized by this voice. I’ve never described it as a voice before because I always associated it with just thoughts. But today those thoughts are not there. I’m calm and that’s weird. So my question is, is it really anxiety?
