I met with a psychiatrist yesterday. After stopping my prior med's for the 2nd. time, I decided I needed to get back on meds. My past med's were not working for me at all.
Just one week ago today, I had to resign my job position and go back to my old position. This was no doubt one of the hardest and upsetting things I had to do in a long time. I was on the verge of a total collapse last weekend. I almost "lost it".
So now I am starting Effexor for depression and Cyproheptadine for nightmares.
I know I cannot take any more of the "lows". I get so depressed, I have a hard time just getting through the day. And then with the nightmares, I can't get through the nights either.
Reading the "side effects" is also scaring me.
Any thoughts or suggestions regarding these med's would be appreciated.
