I'm just being seen by my GP (in the UK). I'm reluctant to see the psychiatrist in my health practise as last time he, and this is no joke, shouted at me that valium are addictive and that I must never be prescribed them again. I had not been abusing them, and didn't even want to carry on taking them, so why I got that reaction, I don't know. He then prescribed me lofepramine, and forced me to dispense the prescription that very minute, and did not discuss the med with me. I didn't take them, and didn't see him again. Thankfully I went into remission from my anxiety complaints for about two years, but now it has been back with a vengeance for a year, and the depression is hitting hard.
I don't know if I should try to see a psychiatrist privately, though it is bound to cost a fortune, and I'm not working at the moment due to the anxiety. Hmm.
You are right, the trazodone is very sedating. It feels as though gravity has doubled when I take the amount I have been prescribed.
Thanks for discussing this with me, makes me feel better to be talking to someone who knows what I'm talking about.
