Reaching Out...Looking for support

Posted by Roo (ruth) on August 2, 1999, at 14:16:16


I just went to the pharmacologist about AD's and
sexual side effects. She said since I've already
tried 2 of the SSRI's and had sexual side effects,
and two of the newer AD's, Wellbutrin and Serzone didn't
work for my depression, that our first course of action
could be A) Try Remeron or B) try a TCA
I asked her about adding something on to prozac (since
it works for me so well otherwise) and she said most
of those options are very iffy and cut back on
Because I'm really scared of people's reports on Remeron
adding on lots of weight really quickly, I opted for
the disipramine. I also took it for a month about
8 years ago--can't remember much about whether it affected
me sexually, but I don't remember gaining weight on
I don't know....
What's my point here....
This may sound stupid, but a part of me feels selfish
for pursuing this Ad that dosent' have sexual side effects
thing so agressively. I feel
like I should just be happy that my drug works for
my depression and shut up about it. I feel like it's
"bad" that I want everything. But I do. Is that wrong?

I feel scared to be on the road of experimentation again
after just getting stable and content with the prozac.

Maybe that's my point. Feeling kind of scared and unsure.
I know I have to just keep trying until something works,
it's just such a scarey process, never knowing what's
going to happen, how a drug is going to effect me. I'm
mostly spooked b/c wellbutrin and serzone made me feel
so BAD, just awful...

Can anyone relate?
