Hi all, my name is Rachel and I am a married mother of 2. I'm going to graduate with my Bachelor's in Social Work next year. I'm hoping that it will help me to talk to people who are living with mental illness as well. I don't feel like anyone in my life really understands what it's like.
I was officially diagnosed with depression about 6 years ago. I've been through periods where it's been well managed and periods where it's been terrible. I find that when I start to go downhill again, it's because I need to switch to a different med. Upping the dose doesn't work. I started out on Zoloft, Lexapro, then Zoloft again, Pristiq and now Effexor- augmented with Welbutrin.
I'd be interested to know what your guys' thoughts/experiences are with these drugs.View Thread
