Same old depression...

Posted by sheilac on February 19, 2013, at 10:08:02

I've been taking 600mg of Trileptal a day for mood stabilization and it seems to work. I also have trouble sleeping, so I find that benedryl or atarax (hydroxyzine - old anti-histamine) seems to be great for sleep.

But, as usual, I have an awful lingering depression. I have no enthusiasm for anything.

I tried taking a low dose of Adderall, but oddly, instead of giving me energy, it made me very emotional and I ended up even more depressed and crying. This is not what I want.

I'm not sure what the answer is. SSRIs don't seem good for me. Not sure if a low dose of Geodon - like 20mg would be good or not. I worry about the heart issues associated with Geodon.

I feel like my brain has turned to mush. I've gained 10 lbs, I don't work out, I have no enthusiasm to do anything. I feel like I'm not living life.

I don't know what to do.
