    I take celexa and welbutrin for depression. I dont know if they work or not, I still have bouts of depression but lately my moods change on a dime. I can be sitting here happy and then all of a sudden Im pissed off as fuck or Im just depressed as hell. So my question is does anyone else get this way, if so are you on medication for it or how do you handle it?

    I take Depakote, Lexapro and Abilify. The Depakote is supposed to work as a mood stabilizer. I don't know what meds do what for me, but they seem to keep my moods level.

    I used to be the same way as far as mood swings go. The best decision I ever made was to see a psychiatrist, because the GP I was seeing didn't know dick about mental illness.

    I made an appointment to see the Dr on Monday, soonest I could get in. Really makes you wonder why you are the way you are. Nothing ever set me off or anyshit like that. I am just this way, how God made me, and I wonder why he did what he did.

    I take Lexapro. It works pretty well for me, especially for my anxiety, and I've never had any side effects with it even though I take 20mg. :hsd:

    Good luck! :wavey:

    The only problem is, my 21st bday is next weekend, and of course ive been waiting for this a long time. I'm supposed to take 1/2 a pill for 7 days then a whole next week. Im thinkin about waiting a week before i start the medication so I can have fun and drink with my friends. We had a lot of plans that weekend.

    If you are bipolar and take SSRI's it will make you cycle hard and fast.

    I'm on 20mg of Lexapro. I originally took them for a sleep disorder. What I probably didn't notice was that I was a very anxious person. I always doubted people and what not. As far as drinking with it, I haven't seen any adverse side-effects. I started Lexapro for 6 months now. At first I was on 10mg, didn't really do much for the sleeping, so doc upped it to 20 mg. That was my level I needed. My mood is better, my sleeping is better. One thing that I have really noticed is that it doesn't let me hold feeling in anymore. If something pisses me off, I say it. If something irritates me, I say it. I'm more truthful about things more than I ever have.
