No, you are not alone. Many have passed your way and have gotten better. You are in crisis right now and need a lot of support. I hope you get it because it is nearly impossible to do this alone.

But back to your question about meds. Zoloft is a highly effective SSRI. Wellbutrin is also an antidepressant, but it works differently and augments the other. Xanax is for anxiety and panic attacks -- I only need it occasionally. Bear in my that this is what works for me, and hopefully you can hook up with a good MD trained in psych meds to find what works for you.

My experience is that alcohol and depression go hand in hand and that both need to be treated. Like we say in AA, "I didn't get sober to be miserable."

Keep in touch!
