  1. I am having a very hard time with this. I’m on disability and live with my parents because it’s not safe for me to live on my own due to physical problems. im going through another period where I just want sex so bad-doesn’t matter who. I’ve sent inappropriate pictures to guys and masterbated with a guy. It’s hard to admit that but it’s true. i have to go to a new psychiatrist my Nuerologist refered me to Monday. He’s got terrible reviews. Something tells me I’ll be sticking with mine but I’m nervous seeing him because of his reviews and the comments
  2. For me, it’s prozac. I have several chronic diseases, two of which are very serious, and take about 12-15 meds in all with it, along with about 5 as needed. i did not like sertraline. I took it with Wellbutrin and my sex drive went out the roof. I was insatiable. Of course I was later found to be bipolar. But that med I was just on a roller coaster with. It was ugly. Just my experience, though.
  3. I love Prozac. This is my second time on it (I’m on a cocktail of meds). It helps with my OCD and depression at 80 mgs. I hope it works for you as well.
  4. I agree with Luvox. When I was on Luvox CR, I had to take it at bedtime because of sedation.
  5. Honestly, I’m not sure myself how similar they are. I just remember one of the times an AD had pooped out on me, my psychiatrist suggested pristiq when I had mentioned that several years ago I had done well on Effexor. She said they were very similar, and I believe she said it was a cleaner Effexor. I actually didn’t do well on it, but just wanted throw that out there to discuss with your psychiatrist and get his opinion on.
  6. I'm not a doctor, but I have OCD. I was always told that Luvox and Prozac were the major drugs for OCD. Is thee a reason he stopped that low. I was on Luxox CR, I think it was called, and I was on a really high dose. My question mark button is messed up but do you think upping the Luvox or switching to Luvox CR might help, may have a different name now since it's generic/ Zoloft and Paxil are also used for OCD. I don't know much about Trintellix so I can't say how much it effects OCD, I just remember the old standard drugs. Sorry I can't be of more help. I was on Remeron when I was hospit
  7. I think Pristiq is somewhat like Effexor. That might be an option. Another option might be adding an antidepressant to the mix. Adding Wellbutrin might help. I don''t know for sure but it might be something to look st if you don't have anxiety. I have anxiety issuers and I still take it and it doesn't make them worse for me. I've been on it for about 4 years. It's something to maybe ask about and just see. Good luck. I hope you find something that works for you. It's so frustrating to find the right one.
  8. Hello from a coastal NC neighbor!

    1. AnxietyGirl74


      hi. how are you/ Sorry my computer screwed up so it won't let me do question marks. I actually had to move to coastal SC but I'm still pretty close. I used to go to Trinity Wellness Center when I was in Leland. Now I go to Michael Wilcox in Garden City. 

      I hope you're doing well. This is the time of year I usually have a rough time. I'm actually doing well so far, though. I was shocked,  but in a good way. Glad to hear from a neighbor even if it is a little further than originally thought.

  9. i agree. When i see him Monday, I think I'm going to ask him to keep me on the same dose of Lamictal. Right now I'm feeling really good. I know he's probably going to have to switch me from Rexulti to Latuda for insurance reasons and I get that but October to December is usually my really depressed for the most part time so I'm happy that I'm up, but not too crazy, right now. It's been a while since I've felt this way and even on another board I post on a lot, just about everything, they were talking about how much happier and not so angry a lot of the time so I'm going to let him know that, t
  10. it was just to be on less meds. i have several different conditions so i'm on a ton of them.
