After my 6 months of zero meds, my anxiety and depression came back. I took Lexapro and didn’t even last a week. I had the worst anxiety ever. It was horrible. But in my situation, my doc put me on Seroquel at night, which is a “mood stabilizer”. From what I’ve read, it’s akin to lithium… yes, for bipolar. Then she (my doc) added zoloft during the day.
I’m doing very well on this “cocktail”… but not perfect. Still having very down days and not 100% yet. Still on the lowest dose of both, however.
I kind of think I am bipolar (denial much?) because I’m so… boring. I used to get so loaded and full of energy and ideas…
I wonder how I can suddenly be bipolar at 51 years old?
Life is weird.
