This is my second post in an hour I know lol I'm having a bad day. Anyways, I've been on at least 10 antidepressants, SSRIs, SNRIs, other stuff, things that were for schizophrenia (which I don't have but they also were used to treat anxiety). Some for a week, some for a few months. Well NONE of them have ever helped at all. My anxiety is very very very severe and constant and never let up or got any better while I was taking the meds. The only thing that happened was sometimes I would get nasty side effects or the anxiety would get worse/I would get depressed or even hallucinate or something. The only thing that helps the anxiety is Xanax, which I've been taking for a while now but over a short period of time it stops working, and they have to up the dose which I hate because I think about future withdrawals when I eventually get off it and I hate being so dependent on an addictive med. Psychiatrists don't seem to believe that nothing works for me as I tell them and it just seems to go in one ear and out the other and they up the dose or put me on more meds. Is anyone else like this? After going through like 20 meds you'd think I'd have found the miracle one by now..
