I have only begun participating in Psycho-Babble (the board for prescription meds) in the last month. I found it when I was trying to understand if my illness was caused by a withdrawal from Effexor-XR. It was. It was a comfort to know the reason for my (physical) illness, but it also became clear that using the Effexor long term was going to cause some serious problems. I feel that through the site, I became better informed. My doctor did not tell me much at all and was quick to give me the samples, so the information I gained on Psycho-Babble was extremely helpful.

Overall, it does make me feel less alone to read about other people's problems. I still need evaluation and treatment, but I am not optimistic about recovery. The Psycho-Babble posts have made it clear to me that there is no easy way to treat depression and anxiety (or any other problem). IF I finally do make it to a psychiatrist (no money, no insurance), I will have a better idea of what to tell him, thanks to this site.
