  1. Hey, So about 5pm every day of late, my mood just turns black. I can't buy a neutral (forget positive) cognition or emotion, I start to feel and think very negatively no matter what I do. Of course, I'm feeling and thinking badly beforehand, but it just sinks to another level, or depth if you will. So I'm wondering if it's a med (or meds) that I'm taking that's losing effect around 5pm. I take the following meds - yes, it's a crazy-looking brew I know, but it allows me to function somewhat - at 6am (in milligrams): 200 Provigil, 2.5 Abilify, 40 Fetzima, 30
  2. I will make this as to the point as possible. First time ever posting on blogs, Hoping this place can aid decisions along with psychiatrist. I was diagnosed with Depression, Anxiety, and Adhd at age 14. (22yo now) My depression has gone from moderate to bad, to severe over the years. This is not the suicidal, crying every night type of depression. This is a (Complete Lack of motivation, energy, drive, initiation,) type of depression. I oversleep and when i wake up, my life is just grey, and uninteresting. Doing anything takes sooooo much fuckin effort. I litterally cannot hold a job, or
  3. Hi There, I'm not much of a poster. But, I've noticed when you are trying to look up people's personal experience with meds, usually the reports are from people who have had really bad experiences, and so you don't normally get the full range of experiences. I'm assuming, the people who are fine, on certain meds, don't really post anything, because they've had no problems with it. Also, I wanted to post about Fetzima, because there is basically not a lot of information on it, so I felt like I wanted to share with the community to help others out who are deciding what to do. And, these forums w
  4. I'm on day seven of the sample pack at 40 mg, insanely irritable the last two days. Not too much nausea and sleep is OK though I take a supplement that has melatonin and Valerian. There really isn't a lot on the Internet about this drug as far as reviews. I think I can manage the side effects but I'm wondering how long they last? If Anyone has ANY input on this drug I would greatly appreciate it. 35, female GAD since 1999 MDD since 2010 I have only taken Zoloft for maybe three weeks in 2000, and just finished a four week trial of Lexapro… I think the doc may have taken
  5. I am curious if there is any interaction between these drugs and ketamine infusion
  6. Excuse the onslaught of possible typos and bad grammar here. I'm shaking like crazy :-((. My name is cat, i'm 17, Diagnosed with MDD (have done research for a few years and possibly rethinking diag. being Borderline PD or Bipolar disorder, psych agrees) and currently pulling through a med journey. I've went from Prozac (I was even more of a youngling when i started this, i have no memory of how it affected me at all), Zoloft (crazy emotional cycling/violent outburts. Oh and it flatlined on me too. Still on it though, currently weaning 50mg.), Saphris, Abilify (Great mood stabilizer, bad s
  7. Hello, I am posting my experience due to the fact that Fetzima is so new and many are changing from either Effexor/Pristiq so I thought I would share. (I apologize ahead for my poor memory, concept of time and any specifics I did not include) Diagnosis: MDD, GAD, Bipolar II, Dsythymia, ADHD, Insomnia Stamped as "Med-Resistant" Well the last 4ish months or so have been quite interesting to say the least, and still going..... I had been on Effexor XR 375mg for around 4 years and it did well in comparison to everything else I have tried (ill post below) but because of bei
  8. I've been reading a lot on this board about the new Fetzima. I was put on it four weeks ago by my GP when my Cymbalta just didn't seem to get the job done anymore. I've been on antidepressants off and on since 1996 but wasn't diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and ADD until four years ago. Up until then I had been on every drug you can imagine for depression. Cymbalta changed/saved my life, but my insurance company began to only supply me with generic, and I could tell immediately that it just wasn't the same. I started getting brain zaps, and that would usually only happen if I miss
  9. Hi, I'm new to crazy boards (if this is the wrong place to put this, let me know.) Like you I've had issues with depression and anxiety (I'm diagnosed OCD as well) for most of my life. I tried a few things Prozac sort of worked when I was young, but left me really flat feeling. More recently I was on Setraline (Zoloft) and Wellbutrin which helped for a little while (6-8 months) but then 'pooped out'. I started taking Fetzima about four weeks ago, and wanted to pass along my experience. It's pretty hard to discern if a symptom can be attributed to the medicine, or any number of other th
  10. I've been a long time reader of the boards but just decided to join because of the lack of information on Fetzima. I've been taking it for a month now and had a horrible experience these past few days. I've been struggling with depression, especially anxiety, since my teens; mom has OCD/hoarding disorder and dad was just diagnosed at 67 with bipolar disorder (we all knew that, he just wouldn't got to the doc to get medicated). It's beyond me why two wacked out humans would get together and spread their horrible genetics to not just one child, but two. My brother is a bigger mess than I am.
  11. I currently have a sample pack that says "Days 1 and 2 take 20mg, Days 3-7 take 40mg". But then it doesn't say anything about the first week? Should one continue to take 40mg, or should dosage be bumped up again?
  12. Hi People! All I wanted was to switch from Pristiq 100mg to something that would allow me to want an intimate relationship. Must have been asking too much. Only problem with Pristiq was extremely dry mouth, waking up after 2 hours of sleep unable to get back to sleep and probably a little too happy ( lack of empathy, binge eating, etc). Started Fetzima Tuesday, no wean down from Pristiq. Wednesday extremely nauseous, hot flashes, sweating, racing heartbeat, vivid dreams the few hours I did sleep. Thursday more nausea, throwing up, jittery, hot flashes. Too miserable to stay at work. So I'm wai
