Dringende hulp benodig - 2
Dankie vir al die antwoorde en hulp van alle rigtings! Ek voel al klaar beter om te weet daar is mense wat soos ek voel. En natuurlik het ek beter dae wat ek lag en simpel kan wees, maar 80 persent van dit is donker en swarigheid en trane. Daar is nie 'n manier hoe ek van my medikasie kan afstand doen nie. Dokter, ek het op skool Trippeline en Triptenol tot 3 per dag gedrink, toe is ek vir jare op Lilly Fluoxitine, nou is ek op die generies Lorien al vir jare, maar moet dringend iets sterker kry, ek kan nie aanmekaar 'n slaappil drink om te "ontsnap" nie. Ek het vandag 'n afspraak gemaak by 'n sielkundige. Baie dankie almal.

See what your psychologist thinks, once he/she knows all the relevant details. In regard to antidepressants, none are "stronger" than any others. hey may be given, unwisely, in too low a dose, when they won't work at all, or too high a dose, when they may be both less effective and cause more side-effects ; but if it works for you, it works. and that's as strong as it gets or needs to be. Discuss with your shrink what exactly makes you think you need somethimg "stronger" ; what symptoms are still troubling you -- there may be other and better ways of dealing with these
