Thanks for the support. I am thinking of asking my dr. for a trial of this when I go in next week. I just mentioned to missinglynxx that I worried it would increase my anxiety, but I do think it is worth the 'risk' of that to give this a try. Irritability I can deal with more than increased nerviousness and anxiety.
I wonder though, if I have ADD or if it is bipolar tendencies -brought on by the ad's possibly. I get racing thoughts, restlessness, and hyperness at times- actually every day. I can't sit still- I have to keep moving unless I take a ton of benzos. I thought it was just the anxiety, but the benzos don't really take care of the anxiety, just help slow me down. But I still feel agitated and I wonder if it's a tad of BP or ADD. I try to get as much information as I can on these subjects but still don't know.
Cutting through the fog, like you said the nortrip does- I remember many years ago feeling that way for a very brief period of time when I started prozac- but then it all went downhill and the fog is thick, very thick now. The benzos I take along with the prozac probably add to the fog, but do slow down some of the hyperness and desire to rearrange things all the time! I can't sit still and talk to someone- I have to jump up and fix a slanted picture or do something 'busy' that doesn't require thought, just movement.
So, anyway, I mystify myself. I don't know what I have-beside a major anxiety d/o and depression.
My question is: if I am BP, would a TCA, would nortrip, make it worse? (I read somewhere that TCA's make BP worse-but I don't know if I am BP and even if so, it would probably be BPII) It helps ADD so that sounds interesting . . .
Wish I knew what my real diagnosis was/is, but who cares if I can find something that works. Labels don't always make the best resources for prescribing meds since people respond so differently to the meds, anyway.
