My husband has been suicidal. I'm taking Lexapro and now Wellbutrin and Periactin (for anxiety) as a stand against the "Secondary Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome". He is on FIVE meds - Wellbutrin, Paxil, Periactin (For Disassociative Episodes - i.e. stress causes him to disconnect from reality)(He was a Vietname Vet - so this is akin to what happened when he used to have flashbacks - seems the brain disconnect under trauma simply transferred to his regular life in non war time) - as well as Xanax PRN and Trazadone for sleep which he hardly uses.

My point? I've nver been suicidal. I mean I've wanted to give up - opt out - etc. But have never acted on this urge - so I'm not sure I undrstand what he feels.

Is there anyone that can post and I can share this with him? He won't post to PSycho-Babble. It's as if he's still in denial about it all and yet running as hard and as fast as he can to health and healing through the meds and counseling - he literally looks scared when I asked him to post here that he might be able to get some support - or conversely - help someone by what he's been through and found help for.

So - someone say something to me here?

Thanks -


> When I tell people I'm on meds and they make a comment I say "Is that bad? I didn't choose to be suicidal." That kind of works! I could never let go of anger or blow off people's criticisms, no matter how minor. It sure is nice to be able to do that. How in the world do these drugs really work?
