Suggest treatment for anxiety and depression
mirtazapine is an option
Thanks for writing to us.
Alparazolam is a benzodiazepine group drug. It is very potent and chances of tolerance and dependence are there if taken for more than 6 weeks and also when it is taken more than the prescribed dose. I recommend clonazepam instead for anxiety. You can ask your doctor for the same. Benzo is symptomatic treatment.
You are losing interest in reading and this suggests possibility of onset of depression In that specific drug for anxiety should be started. You have mentioned only paroxetine. Considering you are not able to tolerate SSRI I recommend starting mirtazapine. You can ask your doctor for the same.
If I were your treating doctor I would like to rule out thyroid and vitamin B12 deficiency. When these reports come normal I of course would like to start medicine which suits you.
Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further.
desvenlafaxine, escitalopram or vilazodone
You have tried mirtazapine, wellbutrin and paroxetine with xanax. In that case I recommend desvenlafaxine, escitalopram or vilazodone.
For more specific diagnosed I need some information.
- Which symptoms do you have right now?
- Until now what medicines have you tried and in which dose? What was the side effect with each medicine that made you stop the same?
- Do you have any physical problem?
Waiting for your response to help you further.
I was taking 10 mg 1 tablet a day. I was on it a month and it did not seem to help.
I found I was taking more alprazolam for anxiety.rhe other one I mentioned in my Pryor message was I believe 10 mg. and that made me crawl out do me skin. I now have anxiety most the day. I find myself taking more alprazolam witch I know can be addictive! I find I am loosing intrest in everything. I keep myself very bossy. But I am wearing down and feeling hopeless. The thing I do not understand is I have no issues to speak of. It's like it is just there. Went to my doctor and he did not seem very knowledgeable. I miss just being happy. Oh and I should say when I get home from work I drink a glass of wine or two. And I am not really a drinker! So at this point I am at a loss. The good news is I am a man of faith. And that helps. So I rambled on. Just reinforces to give you all the info I can!
consultation with psychiatrist will help
Thanks for more information.
It is good that you are physically fit. Your problem is anxiety, which was treated with xanax, and feeling unhappy which was not treated yet. In previous reply I mentioned medicines for depression which are with the least side effects.
Started drinking wine suggests that you need to calm down your mind with some medicine. Alcohol may help initially but later on it can be addictive and wrong cope up strategy to deal with anxiety. So do not take daily and more in amount.
To confirm diagnosis of depression detail history and mental status examination are required and these should be done by a psychiatrist. You can consult psychiatrist if you have not consulted yet and discuss the options I mentioned and start medicine any one of them.
All the best and take care.
