I need a med, but which one? Need some suggestion

Posted by Jaynee on January 16, 2003, at 20:02:35

Okay, I had a really bad bout of clinical depression Dec 2001. Intolerable anxiety, etc. Took celexa for 8 months and helped somewhat. I quit the celexa thinking it was causing my stomach problems. Even after quiting celexa the stomach problems are still there. I believe the stomach problem started before the depression in Dec 2001, actually it started about the same time as depression. I had an endoscopy, and other tests, all were fine. I was told it is some type of stomach motility problem maybe gastroparesis. Some days it can really get to me, excessive burping to the point where it physically hurts. Can't eat normal size meals without it trying to come back up, rarely it does come back up. Basically I am pain constantly. I desperately want the pain to go away.

So, I went on vacation recently and took ativan, almost the whole time I was gone. Miracle on miracles I thought I was cured, no more stomach problems. Obviously it is an anxiety problem, even though I don't feel anxious, not like the anxiety I can get when I am clinically depressed. I really don't want to take ativan everyday. What other med could I take, that isn't a tranquilizer but works like one? Don't suggest an AP, because I won't go that route. Thanks!!!
