depression/anxiety

Posted by brit @brit, Jan 10, 2019

I have had depression for quite a few year now. I am in my 70's and found it harder to deal with. My psychiatrist has been working with me trying to find the best medication. So far no luck. He is very dedicated and does a great job trying to help. Right now I am takin 2 medications but they don't seem to do the
job either. They are Doxepin 25 mg and chlordiazepox. Help!

@tim1028 It's good to hear you are feeling better! And once again, proving that everyone has different reactions/ successes with medication. I wonder what you physician will have to say when you see him?

I'm sure my doc, who knows I like to take the lowest dose of medication that will get the job done, will be pleased that this new anxiety med is working well so far. I went thru a year of trial-and-error with statin meds before we found one that I could tolerate (rosuvastatin 5 mg every other day).

I'm 71 and have had dysthymia(constant low grade depression)for at least 30 or more years. I have had issues of late, and changed medications twice. Tried trintillix, and it was not good for me. It is expensive, but when it works, it is the holy grail. Changed to Prozac about ten days ago, and some Klonopin for anxiety/sleep. Slept for 9 hours last night after a long bout of insomnia. It's a crapshoot to get the chemistry correct. Just be sure you have a doctor who will work with you.

Is the Prozac working for you?
