Linkadge:

You and I seem to have similar chemical reactions. Escitalopram was a med that helped me at a time. During the day I took Effexor & Cymbalta, and at night I got a HUGE chill effect from the anxiety Effexor and Cymbalta caused by taking a whoping 35-40mg dose of escitalopram. I believe that may have been attributed to the slight brush across the CBD cells escitalopram is thought to have. I see you are having some difficulties....in my tough times, I crank the lithium, and lamotragine, or better yet, stay at a high dose. And it sounds like you have some response to the nora-dopa-serotonin uniqueness Effexor targets. Honestly, standing your ground with lamotragine and lithium seems to be a good bet. I used to think these meds did nothing for me...now I know they are part of my "keys". Best wishes...

Someone said, they never fear a thing
Well, I do
And I'm afraid enough for both of us,
For me and you
Time, if nothing else, will do it's worst
So do me a favour, and tell me the good news first
