    Change in May 2010 from Mitarzepine 45 mg to Cipralex 20mg. Despite creeping in very small steps unbearable. Extreme restlessness, almost manic, suicidal thoughts unbearable, it seemed like I was no longer me. 10 kg weight loss, at first very exhausting because there was no strength, want to starve? Has then leveled was ok because weight gain under mirtazapine 25 kg hardly sleep all the senses overwrought, at night 2 hours awake, emotionally even unstable. Working with other people works a little better. Always depressed in the background, crying in me. In November 2010 dose itself slowly reduced to 10 mg. Doctor knows by now. Still feeling alienated. Drug to function externally. Sleep disorder persists, fatigue, depression too. Unruly thoughts are often agony. Possibly there is almost no meaningful drug in PTSD, it’s all hopeful attempts. However, the lithium helps relatively well, only in combination with Cipralex occurs lebensnot gedädkt on.

    Side effects: Sleep disorders

    Lithium for Depression

    Diagnosis: (severe) depression, anxiety and panic attacks 1st trial: Sertraline. At first massive anxiety increase. Ineffective against depression. Side effects: anxiety, agitation, depersonalization / derealization, loss of libido, cocaine pain. Abandoned after a short time. 2nd trial: venlaflaxin. Very effective against panic attacks. Ineffective against depression. Side effects: same as with sertraline. Ingestion to date (225mg / day) 3. Simultaneous treatment with Lyrica. Very effective against internal states of tension, general anxiety and agitation. No influence on the depression. Side effects: fatigue, hunger (weight gain) and slight increase in depressive inertia. 4. Following treatment with quetiapine (Seroquel). Something calming, but no effect on depression or anxiety disorder. Side effects: Massive hunger attacks and severe tiredness. After about 8 weeks again discontinued. 5. Timely treatment with lithium. Strong antisuizidal, otherwise no influence. Side effects: tremor, weight gain and acne. Taking until today. 6. On top of that, Bupoprion (Etronil). Initially highly effective against depression. After a few weeks of action disappeared. No effect on anxiety disorder. Side effects: tremor, dry mouth and sleep disorders. Unplanned treatment success against nicotine addiction. 7. On the whole cocktail again on top: Lamotrigine. Strong effect against depression. No effect on anxiety disorders. Side effects: none. 8. For 7 days try with Methylphenidad (Ritalin). No effect, various side effects. 9. Discontinuation of Lyrica and Wellbutrin without visible consequences. 10th attempt with Nortrilen. Drug very effective against depression. Side effect: Dry mouth, hunger, sleep problems and high blood pressure. Libido can not be assessed due to concomitant use of venlaflaxin. Right now I do not care about the side effects of Nortrilen. After 2 years and various attempts, the first antidepressant, which is really antidepressant. After 2 years of immeasurable suffering, I am finally on the way to recovery. For a long time I hesitated to take an old antidepressant. With all my medicine cocktail, I simply lacked the belief that something could actually work. However, I can highly recommend it for resistance to therapy today. However, the whole chemistry does not replace psychotherapy, which is necessary for longer-term recovery. Some years ago, I could not imagine why anyone could commit suicide. I was taught in a painful way a better one. Hold on, even if it does not look like it at all. It’s actually over.

    Lithium for Depression

    Be 1.5 years severe depressive episode with panic attacks and generalized anxiety disorder. Panic Attacks: Venlaflaxin very good effect. Lyrica only minor effect. Other drugs have no effect. Generalized anxiety disorder: Lyrica very good effect, venlaflaxin moderate to good effect. Lamotrigine moderate effect. Depression: Therapy resistance to antidepressants of the SSRI and SSRNI class (venlaflaxin, sertraline, citalopram). Therapy to lithium. Wellbutrin low to moderate effect. Lamotrigine very good effect. Nicotine addiction (unplanned treatment): Wellbutrin very good effect. Side effects Venlaflaxin in the first four weeks: anxiety, dizziness, severe agitation, loss of libido, headache, sleep disorders. Venlaflaxin after the first four weeks: complete loss of libido. Lyrica: weight gain, initially tiredness. Wellbutrin: Sleep disorders, headache (both only at the beginning). Dry mouth. Lithium: Severe tremor, acne, weight gain, dry mouth, thirst. Lamotrigine: no side effects. After more than a year of drug treatment and unsuccessful treatments, I was prescribed the drug lamotrigine. This works very well, without side effects. Since I also have ADHD, it has modified my depression. The result was, as with many ADHD and depression patients, an extensive therapy license. According to my specialist in ADHD and mood disorders (depression, anxiety), the drugs Wellbutrin and Lamotrigine are in most cases very effective while classic antidepressants fail. After more than 1.5 years of immeasurable torment and suffering, I am finally on the road to recovery. Even if one does not believe it, it passes. PS: Was briefly treated with Seroquel (fatigue, appetite increase, weight gain) and Ritalin (agitation)
