Hi,
I also responded to Sad Panda's response to you and I second his suggestion. Nortryptaline is a very good antidepressant. I was surprised, thinking it was an 'old' one and not as effective as the 'new' ones. It helped me in every way, considering I was going through a terrible time. A year ago Christmas season my Mom was hit by a car while out for a walk and died 4 days later. It was an awful time and I was losing it to panic, disintegration, despair... well, you can imagine. Nortryp lifted me out of this frightening place where I could grieve appropriately, and I will bless it forever. The side effects were too much for me, unfortuntely, but I'm alot more sensitive to se's that don't normally bother other people. It's worth a try if you feel like considering another med. Certainly better than Buspar which made me feel icky. - BCat

> In answer to your question, we don't think it's BP because A.D.D. runs heavily in my family (no reported or apparent cases of BP tho), and my depression/anxiety have been responses to issues with pretty bad OCD and GAD- both of which also run in the family. Both depressions I've endured have been because of a major stress response to a crisis situation because of my obsessing. I definetely will not rule out Bipolar though. Luckily Lexapro has lifted some of my problems. Adderall also helps me be more collected and relaxed and I can concentrate better. I think I want to dump the buspar and go for trazodone instead though.
