My wife, who is a deaf mother of a two-year old daughter, recently engaged in a seriously depressional activity. When talking to the dr. , she told him she sometimes feels like she could kill herself. I never knew she was so depressed; she kept it well-hid, and I must have been wearing my "Husband Goggles". Long story short, they gave her 2.5 zyprexa and 15mg of remeron (one for depression, the other to keep her stable until the remeron kicks in good). She started last night.
My observations were that she slept much better last night, and she seems more "upbeat" today. Is this going to be the "norm", or will she have ups and downs with these med's? It seems as though Psych's don't like to discuss the possibilities and side effects of the med's they prescribe, do they? Maybe you guys can enlighten me, since you know first hand the effects.
Also, how strong are these in comparison to klonopin? I take 2mg of that every night for incurable insomnia. Is it in any way similar? Stronger / Weaker than the others? For anyone wondering about it's affect on Insomnia-- It works okay... I sleep fine, but I have to take it early in the evening, a few hours before bedtime, or I will NOT wake up the next morning for work!!! Once it kicks in, it goes until it's finished.
Please Help us?
Praise be to those who help those in need, and, if you need to talk to ANYONE, or need us to mention you in our prayers, feel free to holler. There's strength in numbers, and God DOES answer prayers!
