> > > Jason, your doc sounds like a good one...may I ask where you live? I know that's a bit personal, but right now I am searching for a doc that will know more, sit with me and discuss the meds and what the withdrawl period involves, etc...just seems as though mine keeps throwing a new prescription at me when I go in to see him.

> Thanks for the reply...but we are no where near each other. I am up in freezing cold Canada...but too bad...
> Just to update on my own situation, as I have just recently stopped taking Effexor due to sexual side effects, I just had an appointment with my GP today and because my anxiety is so bad and the depression is back, I agreed to go back on another anti depressant...this time Celexa, which I have been on before. I know it still has the side effects, but in order for me to get through school I need this anxiety to go's unbearable.

> Honestly, today I thought to myself, I honestly feel right now like I was better off without them at all...that I am now taking these meds to help with the side effects of switching to a new one is only to help with the damage or whatever you wanna call it, from the last drug...

I know how you feel. I got lucky. My psychiatrist was my first one. Took me 2 months to find one though! Almost seems like w/o a referral no one wants to see ya!

So far as meds.. I have been on lexapro, effexor, wellbutrin.. no luck so far. Time to try something again.

Good luck to ya.
