Hi, have posted a couple of times . 47, many life events , lost mum in June which seems to be causing me some real deep loss feelings, more than when my father died 4 years ago.
Diagnosed 3 months ago. Have been treated for depression and anxiety all my life .
Prescriber put me on elvanse 30mg initially. Came and went very quick , very high then 4 hours later crash , and felt a zombie . Overly chilled . Tried 50mg , not zombie but again only 4 hours up and down . Then put me on dexamphetamin, 5mg twice a day , very very little improvement , mostly in mind set . Only In a.m. been on 7:5mg twice a day , and after a week or more , the afternoon dose leaves me with a thick head and feeling anxious and very low and sad and like my emotions are all firing and bare .
I have told the prescriber this, and heard nothing . It’s all on line on a portal . Psychiatry uk. He had mentioned Wellbutrin generic a week or so ago, but as I’m on a small dose of venlafaxine and small dose mirtazpine in eve, both which I want off as only side effects , but can’t get off , he has said we obviously can’t add Wellbutrin.
Am I running out of options so soon ? Are all stimulants going to make my depression worse ?
