hi, there :0),

i'll try my best to help from the info you've given. :) first, if possible, i would find a new doctor. he/she doesn't sound very empathetic. however, if you have to stay with him/her, i think the best thing for you to do right now would be to do your own research, find out what meds *you* think would be best (there's a lot of info on these boards concerning meds for anxiety), and then tell your doc you want that med. insist upon it! don't take no for an answer! i only say this in this case because your doc doesn't seem very knowledgeable (to me) from the info you've given..

my suggestion, if you just have straight anxiety, and since you did well on the ativan, would be low-dose klonopin. i plan to take this med myself for anxiety, and have *thoroughly* researched all the anxiety meds. take just enough to help without feeling drowsy.

if you have any further questions, please let me know.....:)

> I have now been off the zyprexa and depakote for 7 weeks and the Lexapro for a little over 3 weeks. It was slowly getting better, but the last few days have been hell. I keep having these racing thoughts that my brain has been severely screwed up by these meds or that I will never get better. I also still feel slightly nauseous and dizzy and my short term memory is completely shot. How long do I have to endure this? I see my doc tomorrow and I am terrified at the notion that he may diagnose this as severe depression and return me to the antidepressants. I can't go on that merrygoround again. This all started with just an anxiety problem and I took ativan. They yanked that off cold turkey and then I went to the other drugs. I never felt this bad in my life and I am really scared. Any experience here would help or any advice on how to approach my doc would be appreciated.
