Believe it or not I had ECT once a long time ago. It gave me only short term relief, short term memory loss and I still remember the horrible headaches! And I was on lithium once, but would try it again. I have been through 3 psychiatrists and 2 psychologists. I lke the ones I have now. But would be willing to try a new therapist and get a 2nd opinion from another doctor on my meds. I would try any new med. like zyprexa although I've heard it caused weight gain which I DO NOT need or risperadal although geodon is also a new generationan antipsychotic, which is supposed to be helping with anxiety symptoms. Thanks for all your ideas I will consider them. I sure would like a benzo, but my doc REFUSES to give me one-like ativan or xanax. I think I need one-but I overdosed on ativan and he thinks I'm too impulsive to have them.I may call him again today and beg for one.
