> Franz anything about Gad or PTSD latest diagnosis from pdoc?
He did not give me a diagnose. I was always prone to worry with some social phobia and obsessive traits in my opinion. Lately I think due to these tendencies and life events (health problems in the family, work problems, girlfriend breakup) I have been feeling depressed.
He started me on clonazepam (which I do not like very much) but as mood was not better we talked about an antidepressant and he gave me escitalopram 10 mg. This is my second month approx. I notice I do not get so low and that I can switch from bad thoughts more easy but I do not feel much more energy and many times I am lethargic. No bad side effects except from ear discomfort.
I am seeing a therapist too.
Thanks Phillipa for your interest.
