> I have been severely depressed since August '98. I have taken Paxil(40mg) - No Help, Celexa(40mg) - Helped a little but to sedating even augmenting with 20mg Dexadrine. Also it gave me tremors and anxiety. Now I am on Effexor(225mg) - Helps more than the others but I am still having a lot of trouble concentrating, and having enough E N E R G Y to run my business and my life. I am also having terrible memory problems! I can't even remember simple words sometimes. Still having tremor problems and I know I look very Pissed Off all the time. I have to deal with the public all the time, and I don't want to end up going bankrupt because everybody thinks I'm a jerk. I have terrorized my employees, and have even had customers come up and tell me "not to worry, every thing will be OK". Talk gets back to me that I am selling out!, or "Going out of Business". I need something that will not make me appear so anxious!, and angry!, and allows me more patience with my employees.
> I am in bad shape but much improved since August! I also need to be able to focus because I am currently seperated from my wife (since Dec '97) and need to come to some decision. My wife wants me back and knows about my problems, but she does'nt want to wait forever! I feel like I would be a poor example and my depression would rub off on her and my three children.
> My Doc put me on Pindolol for the tremors and to possibly augment the Effexor. It has helped the tremors but I have had to up the Dexadrine to 25mg-30mg to combat the sedation and am still having trouble sleeping problems.
> Need ADVICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
> Please HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
> T H A N K S ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

I manage a large furniture store and can relate to looking pissed. I get wrapped up in my sh*t
and age hour by hour!
Is your doc a psychopharmacologist?
The first thing you said that really jumped out at me was about your family. Maybe they will rub off on you! If you weren't depressed, would you want the family?
