TruthSeeker Posted March 10, 2006 Share Posted March 10, 2006 My newly acquired pdoc told me that he wanted to put me on an SSRI and an atypical anti-psychotic. For OCD, anxiety, and most importantly, treatment-resistant depression. I also have chronic daily migraines which we have not found a solution for; read my posts over at the Migraine board if you want to know more. I don't want to bore you all. I've read all the CrazyMeds pages about the drugs, I've gone to their individual sites (which is always useless), read the PI sheets, and a bunch of the threads here. RemedyFind had almost no information, which is rare, and Drugs.com is the place to go if you want to be convinced not to take a new med out of sheer fear. My pdoc told me to go research (he knows I do my own research), and find which ones I think might work best for me. For the SSRI, I'm thinking Lexapro. I have absolutely no idea on the AAP, and I'd like some advice if anyone can give it. I know everyone obviously reacts differently to medicines, but there are some common effects, and hopefully someone here has been on this combo for depression. I'm also on 300mg Wellbutrin XL. Not doing a damn thing for any of my mental disorders or my migraines, but it's giving me more energy, taking away my appetite (which was pretty non-existent to begin with as I'm always nauseous), and wasn't causing bad side effects so I asked to stay on it. First medicine EVER that did that. The main things I'm looking for are: Obviously, something that has been known to help with depression (a lot of people here mentioned Geodon Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
