I don't know your dx, but I do wonder have you tried the anticonvulsants - lamictal or topamax. I am allergic to most antidepressants, so I was getting really discouraged. I felt there was nothing out there for me. I am able to tolerate Lexapro, but it made my tremors worse. A neurologist has put me on Topamax and I swear it has helped my anxiety problem too. I don't worry and bottom out like I did. I am hopeful that I am getting a bit better. I suffer from severe complex ptsd where I see things moving too. It's like an internal torture chamber, but I do feel that this topamax is helping that some too. I am on a low dose, so I am hopeful. These meds are like fine tuning an instrument. Sometimes, just a few milligrams of this or that makes a world of difference. Also, I have chronic back pain. To date, I really haven't been noticing it with the topamax. I am keeping my fingers crossed. Please don't give up and find someone that will stick with you too. Keep researching. Don't give up on yourself either. I found out about the topamax helping the tremors on line and shared it with the neurologist. He was willing to give it a try. It's a brand new treatment.
