What do GP's really know?

Posted by TonyIreland on October 14, 2003, at 18:22:51


Im new to the board so a big Hello to everyone - Im tony and am 27 yr old programmer from Ireland.

To the point...I have been reading alot of the posts here on Effexor and withdrawl symtoms. Im currently off them this past 3 days and its a nightmare. The thing is my doctor told me to wean off them over a week and then start my celexa.

I was on 150mg a day - so day 1 i took 150mg, day 2 i took 75,day 3 nothing, day 4 75, day 5 nothing and then nothing for another two days and started celexa today. But other doctors have said wean over a period of a month some cases 2 or 3 months - i really dont think GP's know what they are talking about at all!!

I cant sleep - im moody - im feelin dizzy - get electric shock type feelings - cant concentrate - cant eat - no interest :: This is bloody hell!!

Ive been on antidepressants for four years now and I havent a clue what type of depression I have, how i got it and know anything about ever gettin away from it or how to. All my doc does is throw me prescriptions on dugs he knows damn all about. But sure as long as he gets paid - my depression doesnt really matter!!

Id love to have my normal life back and i dwell on this thought and know I will never have it back.

I really cant be bothered anymore - in fact as im writing this msg - im in tears feelin sorry myself goin through this crap. Why????????? why???????? why????????/

Could someone tell me that if there is a God up there - then why the hell does he let this happen????????????

im sorry people im just so angry at being depressed. If i had no parents or brothers/sisters, I would have taken my life a long time ago - But is liing for someone else good enough reason to continue living - idont think so.

My advice - anyone who feels depressed and is prescribed Anti depressants for the first time - seek a second professional opinion.

I really hope the people on this board get free of their depression. Its the worst illness that exists to mankind.
