Depression Medication

Depression Medication

For those of you who have been diagnosed and are being treated for depression and anxiety, what medication has your doctors prescribed? I was on wellbutrin last uear before my diagnosis but it seemed to do nothing for me. I have an appointment tomorrow to try to figure something else out.

Hey, I take mirtazapine/remeron. The doses are 15mg 30mg 45mg it took me a while to get the right balance I started at the lowest and I now take the maximum but it’s helped me a lot with depression. For anxiety I take propranolol it helps keep the palpitations under control. Hope you find a solution which works for you. Take care πŸ’œ

Zoloft and then Prozac because Zoloft stopped working even after uping my dose. Diazepam for panic attacks which I have a lot fewer these days.

I was on wellbutrin and it did nothing. At my appointment, I was diagnosed with bipolar 1 and started on lamictal. So far it seems to be helping.
