Polarbear, actually no I wasn't on cymbalta when I decided I didn't need my therapist. I didn't tell her I just haven't called her back when I missed a session. I have since called her and her voice mail says she is on vacation. I left a message telling her I was sorry and messed up and to call me. I will see if she does. I understand your situation with your son. I my dauhgter is now a sophomore and it was a little easier this year. Not great but easier. I think you are right about my moods and getting them under control. It would help with the anxiety too and depression I think. It is amazing at my swings. I have not taking many meds for depression, a ton of seizure drugs but not for mood disorders so they were being looked at for that reason and I never knew they were used for this purpose. But they didn't seem to help my moods which swung while on them and the dosage for seizure control is usually higher than most things so you think they would help for mood control but maybe it was too high for that and backfired. I don't know. I have had topamax, still on, depakote, DHE, hydro, vicodon cant spell it, imitrex, gosh so many I can't remember them all, I should have kept better records. Loads of painkiiler since one doctor thought that was a good way to go for migraines but they don't work, I replaced him. But no one I ever saw did I confess about the depression until my daughter left and I had my first panic attack and got really scared because after that one I had another one and the depression hit hard and I couldn't get out of bed. I went to my gp and see gave me cymbalta. I was on it 6 months but I got really sick on it and wound up in the hospital due to collitis. I had to taper slowly off of it and that was extremly hard. It was like de-toxing. I reacted hard to cymbalta. It was like having the flu only really bad. Brain zaps, no energy, rages, crying jags, brain zaps, body aches, and lots more two bad rashes that I nearly drove me crazy. And the partial seizures or brain zone out started and I went to the neuro. This is why I wouldn't start another AD and elected to have therapy instead to try no meds. But I don't think it is working altogether. Sorry for the book. I applaud those that are afraid to try different meds because I am scared shi_less to try more and scared not to. Catch 22 situation. Again, thanks for listening. I sound crazy to myself. But it helps to talk it out and my husband doesn't get it.
