I clearly would prefer a qualified DR, but my sense is that most of them treat alphabetically, if not Celexa then lets try Effexor, if not than Prozac, if not Zoloft...At least that is how I was treated when I was living in LA. I think if I had some recommendations from people on this site I could at least have something to take to the table when I do make it to the capital.
I sense that there are upper SSRIs and downer SSRIs and I clearly am a candidate for the latter.
> Sean, If I were you I would travel the six hours to the doc and get the correct diagnosis. You are playing with fire if you start taking meds that might be dangerous to you. There are so many that are addictive and have bad side effects. I am bipolar and anxious and take a mood stabilizer. Please go to this doc. I am afraid noone on this site will tell you a certain drug you should take. Do you have a regular doc local. Have him look into it. I am sorry of your predicament. This site will help you stay informed and get you through sometimes rough days. Take care
