> My doc gave me vistaril but refuses to give me ativan or xanax. It helps some with anxiety. I haven't tried neurontin. My doc says zoloft, remeron and geodon plus the vistiral should be enough to treat my anxiety. I am trying. My depression comes and goes-for awhile I feel better and then it descends again like a dense fog-a blanket of heavy darkness-hard to explain.

It's not hard to explain to a person who's experienced it.

Because a drug combination "should be enough" doesn't mean it *is* enough. I *need* to take Klonopin. Nothing else works. I've been very resistant to taking it regularly, but I finally came around a couple of weeks ago and I've been doing much better. I'll be trying the new extended-release Xanax soon because it is less sedating.

You say you like your doctor so you probably don't want to switch to a new one. A second opinion might be worthwhile. I just got one. (He had some interesting, probably useful, but not terribly surprising suggestions.)
