That's when we started adding AAPs. I don't mind trying new meds, but changing from one AAP to another has been causing overwhelming anxiety that is almost unbearable. My doc gave me Ativan for the anxiety but then how do I know when / if the AAP is starting to work?

Oh no, not condescending at all - I appreciate your thoughts and best wishes as well.
