Tired on SSRI's, anxious without them


Recommended Posts

I recently quit Lexapro and my energy has come back. I get so tired from anything that affect seratonin. But I'm startin to think I need them, since the last few days I've been crying over nothing, being really aggressive and basically just unstable. I also went completely manic when going off it, hallucinations and everything, but that's another story which is posted in the bipolar board.

So are there any alternatives to SSRI's that would still keep me stable. I've tried Edronax (didn't do much but help with focusing and concentration) and Wellbutrin (made me manic).

Right now I'm so desperate that I'm actually thinking about the tricyclics.

I need something with no risk of making me tired, I can't stand that. Being a teenager I sleep enough already!

I was going to suggest ditching the tyrosine, but from your siggie, looks like you already have!  Maybe try adding in taurine now?

The other thing is, maybe it's rebound depression?  How long ago did you take the last of the Lexapro?

I agree with Helena.  I quit Zoloft after 11 yrs., I was tired on it and had very flat emotions.  I decided to quit it to see what my emotions were off of it.  For me it was good a few days and then I tanked.  I'm on Cymbalta and feel like I have more emotions, still tired, still can't sleep sometimes, but I think I like this drug better.  (I'm guarding that statement).  Good luck Kris.
