I was chronically tired, and very depressed, so not much point in taking it. It didn't help my SP at all. I need 2 come off it before another antidepressant, which realistically is the only thing I'm going to be prescribed in the near future.
> I know what you mean about the uk docs very reluctant to give out benzo's .. do you see a physciatrist ? If you were hospilized u would beable to get a benzo pretty much right away..
Yes I see a psychiatrist. He's private, but I'm going to go on the NHS asap. I really can't imagine any advantages of me seeing this guy over a NHS one, he's not very liberal.
It sucks so much, I wouldn't choose to go down this MAOI route but I'm not being given any effective options. It seems like the only things given for anxiety here are antidepressants.
