Hello. I suffer from anxiety for 6 yrs. I took celexa for 3 yrs then switched to Effexor for another 3 yrs I switched back to celexa due to some side effects from Effexor. Well to say that it's been hell for the few weeks is an understatement. I went to see a psychiatrist and she switched me to Brintellix. I'm on it 8 days. Had a good day yesterday but the anxiety is back. I contacted the psych and she wants to put me on either depakote or lamical. With the Brintellix. Those meds are for major depression or Bi-polar. All I needed was my anxiety to subside. I don't think I will take another med. oh I am taking clonapin twice a day. Do these doctors want to make me a zombie?
