Thanks for your reply. I have an appt. w/ my psychopharmacologist in two hours. I really have liked Serzone til I found out everyone at work was getting scared shitless of me!:0
My store had a very good month sales wise-assholes always seem to do better in business. Just my opinion.
What input I get from my doc I will immediately share with you. Some of the AD's I have been on for the last 14 years are:amitryptaline, doxepin,
tranxene, vivactil, zanax, prozac, zoloft, paxil,
luvox, effexor, wellbutrin, ritalin, klonopin and a few others I've probably forgotten. If the doc has no rabbit to pull out of the hat, I'm getting on SJW and signing up for yoga about 6 nights a week! Although I believe I will need meds and at this point don't have much faith in SJW for me.
This past year, with all the so-called advances in this area of medicine, has been hell for me.
William Styron 's book mentioned that he just did six months in the hospital to cure his depression. Wish common people had that option.
Good luck, Ruth...I will be in touch.
