DKnight Posted November 11, 2010 Share Posted November 11, 2010 And I'm left feeling a bit wary and nervous about the future of course. I was in there because I was ready to commit suicide, I still am, but they didn't want to hold me after 20 days, so I got released and sent home. Anyhow, I feel a bit better, my main problem is I'm off work and can't find many distractions or things to do, you know what that can lead to mentally, it's not good. Well my concerns are with the meds too. I was put on effexor XR 300mg, we went up fast too. I can feel it helping somewhat, but I'm still having suicidal thoughts even when my mood is stable, especially when I wake up, is this normal? How long does effexor generally take to start improving? I was also on ativan 3mg 3x a day. I also take with it restoril and a small dosage of seroquel 25mg at night for sleep. But I didn't really get a good plan on where to go with the meds. They kind of discharged me with scripts but no plan. I see the pdoc there tuesday, but should I just keep taking all these meds? It's not a whole lot but I dont want to build too much of a tolerance/dependence in case some night i have emergency anxiety or such. thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
