Ammity Posted July 26, 2005 Share Posted July 26, 2005 I'm Bipolar II, we think. Maybe even just Major Depression with severe anxiety. I made this poll because I want to know which AD you can handle without going completely bonkers with anxiety that it may cause. I'm talking about just anxiety, paranoia, and depression here. i'm leaving out weight gain, etc. because at this point i just want to know about the depression and anxiety/paranoia part of these meds. So far my vote is Trazadone which I had to continue for another reason (weird yes, it lifted my depression a bit and didnt cause anxiety) Effexor XR 75mg has totally lifted my depression, but I'm so paranoid, sooo paranoidly anxious... it sucks. I'm adding Risperdal to see if that will take away the paranoia. If it doesn't, then that's where this poll comes in handy. I hate to get a new AD, but it may come down to it. If you could... it would really help me for you to list the specific ADs that worked for your depression without causing anxiety. Thank you soooooooo much for all who can help me with this poll!!! if u want to see my med concoction right now... 150 Lamictal, but going back up to 200 tonight 1mg Cogentin 75mg Effexor XR 37.5 Risperdal Prevacid for acid reflux Zyrtect for allergies Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
