Quoting bbbt:" Well I was trying to wean off it. My doctor had some concerns with my liver. I was on 100mg last year, ... [snip!] ... what I'm on now. I just don't think it's enough. But I don't know if I can up the dose if my liver isn't functioning at 100%. "


Oh no. :(



Definitely tell him/her that you are feeling depressed. They may have alternative treatment plans and if worst comes to worst, there is electric/shock therapy. I've heard it can do wonders for depression.



Also, let your family know how your feeling, that you feel that they would feel relieved if you were dead. They will reinforce what I'm saying and let you know that they love you.

Thank you. I will talk to her. I have an appointment sometime in November. I am just afraid. What if I can't take meds anymore? I don't think I can survive the anxiety/depression.

This didn't work for me, but I tried Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. These two therapies work on rewiring the brain's way of thinking and has done wonders for many.
