At the moment I'm on generic Paxil, which I've been on for 3 months or so. Although it's working on my depression, I'm finding it activating and my anxiety is higher than usual. I see my pdoc next week and we'll talk.

I take 1.5mg Xanax in split doses over the course of the day. My anxiety does not appear to be situational but is rather a constant companion. Right now it feels like a chemical problem rather than a psychological problem, and my therapist agrees.

I also take 100mg Seroquel to sleep. Sometimes it works a treat; at other times my anxiety overcomes even the wallop of that sedating med and it takes about 2 hours for me to drop off.

I consider this a work in process, as does my pdoc. I longer feel that I'm at the medicinal end of my rope, though; and that's a definite sign of improvement.

take care,
pc
