When will I find something that works??

Posted by Joanne on March 28, 1999, at 10:18:36

Without knowing it, I have suffered from depression for years.
About 3 months ago, I was diagnosed with clinical depression.
Things finally started to make sense. Now, the problem is the drugs.
I first started on Wellbutrin to quit smoking, (I finally did it and it's
2 weeks today!) then added Paxil which did nothing for me. At this point,
my doctor gave me Ambien to help me sleep too. After Paxil, we tried Zoloft,
which seemed to work pretty well. The problem? Zoloft isnt' covered
by my insurance. Now we're trying Depakote.
In all, I'm taking 150 mg of Welbutrin and 1000 mg of
Depakote every day. I just started the depakote a few days ago,
so no idea yet how this will work. Even though I have only been
diagnosed and treated for 3 months, I am totally frustrated.
I am so tired of medication changes I could scream. Each time we make a
change, I sit and wait for more side effects. I go days without sleeping,
eating has no longer become a necessity for me... I can go days without
doing that too. I'm ready to just chuck all the meds and skip it.
But I know that will just make me go back to crying all the time.
If anyone has any ideas, hints, or words of wisdom, I would love
to hear them.
