I'd be happy to...I have been dealing with bad anxiety/depression for the last 5 years. It all was sparked for me while smoking some weed. I had done it plenty of times, but I guess the camel's back got broken.

Anyhow, the worst symptom for me has been a dizziness/dissociation/overstimulated vision thing. It all started as anxiety adn morphed into depression, fibromyalgia, etc.

I was treated inititally with all the SSRI's and new antidepressants. I found some relief with valium (small doses), remeron (major weight gain), and was cured for about 1 1/2 months on lamictal (pooped out). After many trials and tribulations I am finding that the addition of Lithobid and Zyprexa to my neurontin and valium is doing something really nice. If you read my last post under "Lithobid & Zyprexa working great...", you'll learn a little about my family history also.

I would recommend you try to find a dr. that will help you try to nip this in the bud aggressively. I think I suffered unnecessarily by being treated with the more(for lack of a better expression-politically correct drugs). I would look to try to stabilize on a long acting benzo or antipsychotic and then maybe work of something else for the long term.

Let me know if you have more questions. I owe this board, because many people here have helped me. Have a good one!
