I feel like giving up.
« on: August 30, 2014, 10:26:54 PM »
I'm 22 and I've been on meds since I was about 2 or 3. They help a little bit, *I think*. The only one that helps a lot is Xanax. Xanax makes my anxiety manageable and helps the depression when I take it. However, if I don't take my Xanax, I generally feel a sense of depression almost constantly. Meds that you take daily have never really helped me much. Is it possible I could be resistant to non-fast acting meds? I just wish I could feel happy consistently, not just small glimpses of happiness.

You have been on medication since you were 2-years-old? I would question who on earth would put such a young person on medication to begin with. If we are talking medication for depression and anxiety. I would have imagined they would not hand medication out to babies. As that is what we are all still at that age. Your system does get used to medication. If you have been on them 20 years they might not be working as good these days. Hence we hear of people having to change medication every so often. This is one you would need to discuss with your doctor. Tell him the medication is not working. See what happens from there.

Thank you. I was doing really badly so they decided to put me on meds for my safety and health. I have taken MANY different medications over the years, and none of them have ever worked as well I really wish they would, unfortunately. I'm thinking of getting off my meds for weight reasons and possibly trying out St. John's Wort, if my doctor approves it of course. :)

Hi Jessica :action-smiley-065:

I see you are visiting us again after a long time...

Welcome back....

Last time u were using Celexa 40 mg.......

The Xanax is working .... But it has a short half-life .... So it only lasted me about 4-6 hours.

Can u share what other meds you have used in the last 5 years....?

What other AD besides Celexa....

Any other BZD besides Xanax?

Welcome back !

Hello! Thank you for welcoming me back. :)
The meds I am taking now, besides Xanax, are Paxil and Zyprexa.
Over the past few years I have tried the following meds (I'm sorry if I forget a couple!): Prozac, Abilify, Celexa, Clonidine, Effexor, Risperdal, and Zoloft.
