> Dear Matt,
> you seem to be well versed on meds and since I've no such person to get advice from (my current doctor seems to be anti-medication!!), I thought I'd ask for your input.
> I've been on prozac, paxil, celexa, effexor, wellbutrin, xanax, lorazepam, lithium, zyprexa and risperdal. All except for risperdal have been unhelpful. I suffer from anxietty and depression. The risperdal prevents my anxiety from getting to a point where I scream and writhe on the floor. So with it I am just anxious to the point where I experience extreme restlessness and inability to concentrate on anything. It's better then screaming and writhing.
> I'm at a loss(and so is my doctor) as to how to help my self any further. Do you have any suggestions?


Just a thought. Is it a possibility that you have Adult Attention Deficit Disorder? How did you do in grade school? Did you and do you have trouble focusing without lots of intrusive thoughts? You might ask your physician or a licensed clinical social worker if this could be the basis for your anxiety. The theraputic approach is often significantly different from those used for panic and/or anxiety disorders.
