I do take it as needed. But when I'm feeling really bad, as needed is usually daily. The funny thing is that when I've taken it for a while (a week or two) and then I stop, I feel really tearful and sad. So maybe it has an antidepressant effect as well?

I think that some people just have an affinity for one sort of medication. I took one of the old antipsychotics in my worst year as an adolescent, and it may be why I'm still here. It just seems to suit me and my form of anxiety or occasional agitated depression. It's too bad that it's not great for my diabetes. :(

I also found klonopin helpful. But Wellbutrin and Effexor and nortriptyline were *awful* for me. And while I was on Luvox for four years and it did help with agitation I guess, I'm not overly fond of SSRI's either. Part of the reason is likely that few of my mood dips last long enough to justify the withdrawal.

Maybe you just need to try different types of medications? They're not all serotonin based.
