Question about anxiety with depression

Posted by Maria Goff on November 5, 1998, at 23:02:33

Hi, I need some advice. I think i have been through the medical wringer the past two years.
This whole thing started out with my quitting smoking and then i started to develop strange symptoms.
Numbness that wouldn't go away, panic attacks, fatigue, and this out of it feeling where I felt detached from things
and this feeling of brain fog. I been diagnosed by everyone who has seen me with GAD, worry, obsessing and mild depression.
I was on Paxil for awhile but the side affects of apathy were intolerable and I was sleeping all the time.
I finally got off of the Paxil, quit smoking, and went to counseling. The counselor said that I had no clinical disorder she
could see except maybe GAD. At this time I was also taking ibuprofen for pain and found that it quieted my anxiety enough that
I actually felt good enough to end therapy. I am and have been under alot of stress also for some time. REcently my anxiety took off again and back came the depression as well.
I tried Zoloft at 25mg for two weeks-the first week was great (placebo effect?) I had more energy and I could think more clearly. But by the second week
it caused me to become depressed all the time. I stopped taking it today and feel like I am right back where I started.
They want me to try Serzone.
My question is-if all of this was caused by stress and trauma, will Serzone and counseling get ridof the problem?
I would like to move on with my life.
There are no people in my family with depression or other mental illnesses
though a couple of people are anxious people.
