User :   since I have had my daughter she will be 4 in June,I have had moderate hair loss, irritable,constant mood swings.Depression or what feels to me like being down and out.My joints have a burning pain its not constant but it happens almost 3 times a week sometimes several times in the same day.I have also experienced tightness in my chest,and cough up lots of phlem in the mornings sick to my stomach as soon as I wake up in the mornings what It throw up is white phlem like substance. I have been on several different medications Celexia,Hydroxizine,Wellibrutrin,Paxil,Prozac,Zoloft, none of these help they would for a little while but then it was like i was taking nothing.At one point the had me on 300mg of Zoloft and 5 hydroxizine a day.Nothing helped. I need some kind of help to figure out what this is.It is literally driving me insane and tearing apart my family.
