:brainfart: mirtazipine was the one i forgot...none of them worked and gave me horrific side effects resulting in more meds and loads of blood work... *sigh* sometimes meds just aren't the fix the docs want them to be so dont
feel down if they dont work, i hate meds for lots of reasons but you have to just work thru the list to get to the one that works for your, so dont give up trying, talk to your doc

Sertraline. It took a while for it to kick in, maybe because I started low dose, but I have noticed a major difference over the past year even if my dose probably still needs to be increased some.

Besides my asthma meds I'm supposed to be on Prozac and klonopin but haven't had them for a while. And sometimes trazadone and I was on Zoloft at one point too in an attempt by my doctor to replace the prozac. that didn't work out too well.

My doctor wouldn't take me seriously, so all he did was put me on 20mg of Citalopram. It didn't help so I just stopped taking it. My dad wouldn't take me back to the doctors.

I have been on A LOT of different meds but I am currently on Topiramate 25mg, which is a substitute for Topamax, I'm on Mirtazapine 30mg, which is a substitute for Remeron, and Lexapro 20mg. I don't think they're working very well anymore, but they do help me get to sleep at night which I like.

I have been on two medications in the past 4 years. But I'm not on anything right now.
I think I feel better without them.
