Hi girls,
Just wanted to let you know I was to the doctor this morning and she put me on Celexa-Citalopram for depression and panic disorder. I think I have been having panic attacks, so she is trying me on this for awhile to see if it makes a difference. She also said that sometime I should think about seeing a therapist, I will give this a whirl first and see how it goes.
She was very impressed with my weight loss, and also informed me however, this med could possibly cause me to gain weight but she said where I am already doing so well there, it should not be a problem. I hope not! She was also pleased to hear I quite drinking. Now if I can get this dealt with, then I will move on to the smoking issue, but she told me to take one thing on at a time.
Well, we will see how it goes anyway. Thanks for your support!
Virginia

Virginia-GOOD FOR YOU!!! My DS (#2) is on Celexa. He still gets anxious sometimes, but hasn't had a major panic attack since he went on it. Hope it works for you too!!!

wow, i just think that people who have the courage to go get taken care of are so amazing. to normal people I suppose making a Dr.'s Appt is not a big deal. But, to people like me... i dunno. The thought terrifies me. I haven't been to a gyno in 3 years, and I haven't been to a regular Dr. in about 2. I have gone in to get things taken care of like ear infections... but... emotional and physical problems ... i almost feel like if i ignore it it will go away i guess. *L*

No news it good news.

Congrats to the people who have the courage to love themselves and take care of themselves. Maybe I'll face my fear that something is wrong and take the plunge some day.


on a side note - i too played the medication game. first zoloft. then effexor. then prozac. it's so hard to find the right one. i kinda feel like i should go back on them now, but playing the medication game is risky. zoloft made me worse, and effexor made me a zombie, and prozac made me apathetic. i need something that just keeps me from having such a bad attitude, will help me be social, and not have freak outs. is that too much to ask? *LOL*

Oh Lizzi... you sound JUST like me! I'm taking Fluoxetine (prozac), and it's worked pretty well for me (okay, it's been my miracle drug) for several years. But I'm still getting some bad depression stuff... with greater frequency lately... so I'm going to find a good (hopefully) psychiatrist and see about changing my meds.
DON'T ignore your problems! We will kick you in the butt and MAKE you go!

Chickies, I have been blessed by never suffering from a major depression but have several friends who have to live with the condition. I imagine the hardest step is recognizing you need help and going and getting it.

Good for you all and a huge supportive hug.

Miss Chriss,

My DH's best friend is Bi-polar. He is very overweight. He says it's due to some of his meds. They changed them and he has started to loose the weight. I don't know if it is true or not, but that is what he says. I also have a friend who is dating a man who is bi-polar and he is very fit.

Don't know if it helps or not, just thought I would put my two pennies in, lol

Bella23

Other then that, I can't be much help

I am kind of like you, Lizzi...it is hard for me to make those dr appts. I have a terrific dr but alas she herself has been ill a lot this year - so I want to wait till she is better. I really love her, and she has known me for 6 years, so I don't want to switch. But even with her, it is hard to explain what is on my mind, when it is sort of hard to describe. I don't have classic panic attacks but a lot of things make me anxious.

Hmmm...maybe I could just say that, of course!
