New here, and could use a bit of help (long)

Posted by broken on January 12, 2005, at 15:29:47


I've posted here a few times, but very few. I usually can find alot of answers just by looking through older posts, and dont start a new thread.

In any event, my question is this, and the more answers the better. I see a Pdoc, no therapist at the moment. My question is, how do you really know if your meds are working. Stupid question, but I stopped using Wellbutrin earlier this week. I had been on 450mg a day, and the last time I had taken it, several years ago, it caused vivid dreams and/or nightmares. My Pdoc wanted me to give it a try, and I have for 6 months, but the dreams started again, and I can't handle them. I tossed the bottle. Haven't had any in roughly 60 hours now, and I cant tell a difference. It's like, I was taking a placebo or something, nothing has changed. So now, I assume that they haven't helped me a bit, and I wasted 6 months taking them. Then I feel guilty about telling the doc that this stuff did nothing for me. I'd almost rather quit seeing him at all, than say, "This med doesn't work either." I have been down that road alot. Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac, and now Wellbutrin, nothing has worked. I have seen some small results from the effexor I am taking (yes I've read about withdrawal, but dont care about that, if I see any results at all) but nothing else has even been noticeable. I'm stuck, I dont know what to say to him or what to do. Just give up on any hope of med treatment?
