I was on zoloft before but it had me feelings numb to my feelings completely so i wend off after about a year or so. Other than that I haven't tried anything else. I was on lexapro mainly for my anxiety and it was very helpful but now I've got this depression kicking in bad...I had a few people recommend adding wellbutrin but my doc is on vacation this week so I can't even ask her about it besides that I'm scared to be on so many pills. I wish I could just feel half normal at least, this is terrible. My poor kids just seeing me so unhappy- I'm trying to put on a happy face but I know they can tell. I have xanex but usually I only take it when I'm having an anxiety attack I don't know if it would help with depression. I feel such a deep saddness in me right now...

> > I've upped my lexapro from 10 to 15mgs about 2 weeks ago. It has helped with my anxiety but the depression is horrible, is this just a temporary side effect until I get used to the upped dose or am I just getting worse??? I feel like I can't function at all and I really feel it's affecting my family. I just want to sit in the corner and cry...HELP PLEASE...
> From one in need to another ----- When I got off Effexor XR about 2 years ago......(I thought I didn't need it anymore) -- I felt good for about a day and then crashed very very hard. I went into a crying spell beyond belief for weeks and had extreme deep dark depression and suicidal thoughts. I took Lexapro which had just come out to get me back to not feeling so depressed but I don't recall any antidepressional qualities from it and I immediately went back to Effexor. Have u tried other meds --- perhaps a dual med like Effexor XR which also works on the Noreps along with the Serotonin? It's the only one that has ever helped at all for me. Well I hope you find your answers and just remember that it always gets better. I've been there many times before.
