what do you think about me trying out some Ginkgo? Seems to be what I need. Just curious

What do you think you need it for? The brain fog? If so, I don't think this is because of reduced blood flow in the brain which is the main thing Ginkgo is likely to address. Luvox also has anticoagulant and vasodilation properties so taking Ginkgo won't greatly increase blood flow in the brain anyway. However, the two together could exacerbate bleeding so don't take Ginkgo without discussing it with your doctor first.

Are you still on 150mg of Luvox?

Hey Azmattaz I just wanted to chime in and say I ended up switching to zoloft and my brain fog/dizziness/overall blah feeling is gone. I feel like a new person on zoloft compared to lexapro (and I stuck it out for 4.5 months on lex). I'm still in the process of titrating down on the lexapro while increasing the zoloft, but the differences really amaze me. Just thought to think about switching meds in the future if you're still feeling this way!

Insights no I haven't upped to 150MG yet I'm still at 100MG, and idk I was at a health food store and was reading the label and it sounded pretty good but I agree with you probably not what I need. Thank you @LynnC i have an appointment with my new Dr in early May, she's pretty good I had her years ago, I'm hoping she'll back up the ssri thing and tell me to wait it out or idk tell me something, my other doc was confused so I didn't like that. Thank you though

Just wanted to come in and update my post. Wanted to let everyone know, anxiety and depression are almost gone, the brainfog thing is still there but much less strong or bothersome, I can handle it now. Thank you guys so much for help keeping me sane, I'm not out of the woods but I see light now and that's a blessing I love life again. Insights I can't thank you enough you really helped keep me focused through some of the toughest days in my life. Thank you. And Leo99 you're gods blessing to my life you have been one of my best friends and I'm thankful for you. Thank you all for reading. I may have another bad day here or there and come on and tell you all about it but i truly am much much happier than I've been in a very long time. Thank you

I'm glad it is, finally, working out for you. You're a lot stronger than you give yourself credit for. Now that you're well on the way to recovery, start living, really living!   :action-smiley-065:

Setbacks happen, unfortunately. Discuss this with your doctor if it persists. Are you still on 100mg Zoloft? If so, this is still a low dose.

So the dr switched my meds to "Sertraline" or Zoloft, I'm optimistic that this will do better, I will say I haven't had much anxiety with the Luvox but the other issues I have still lingered and gotten worse lately but as far as anxiety goes Luvox worked well for me, she said she didn't care for all the interactions in Luvox which I understand.

Hey Insights, had a few questions, I haven't been on here in a long time due to me feeling much better, for months I've been nearly normal a bad day here or there, about two weeks ago I didn't take my med (Zoloft) for about three or four days due to a refill issue but I've been back since and 100mg every night but for a week or so I've felt pretty anxious lots of my old symptoms have been back.. I'm wondering it's from that stoppage in meds or what.. Idk if I should up it to 150mg or wait it out. What do u think?
