Does anyone know of any (new?) meds for depression and/or anxiety?

I am really feeling like I am just hanging on by a very thin thread.

Used to be that these "episodes" would occur rather infrequently - but are happening all the time now....and it is REALLY scaring me - to the point that I am thinking about asking my boyfriend to take the shotgun out of the house because I am really scared of what I might do.

I have been suicidal in the past before - but the thoughts would just wane after awhile....but now - it keeps coming up daily....and I have never experienced this depth before.

I've been laid off THREE times now - and I just can't seem to muster up the courage and energy to try anymore. I have an interview Wednesday for a part-time job.

Gosh, it is just really hard to crawl out of this hole recently.

I took paxil for about 10 years and finally got off of them because I was tired of feeling "numbed out" so I was wondering if anyone knew of perhaps any new meds that have good results?

Thanks.

Hi,

I am going to the dr. tomorrow to get a prescription for anti-depressants. If I get any useful info, I will pass it on, sorry I can't be of help today.

Do you know what issues cause your depression?

Also besides meds have you considered trying meditation and exercise? It may well.. help to take your mind of things as you focus on those things that you want. you could find just sitting in a quite space, with some music and focussing on your breath immensely useful. As thoughts come (they will), bring your attention back to the breath and take deep slow breaths. Start with maybe 3-5 mins and increase it to 15 mins/day. This will definitely calm you down a lot.

lots of love to you

I unfortunately can't tell you whether any of these Rx's are new or not. I'm going to the doctor on the 6th to see about getting on one of two of these. I went online and was researching them yesterday and the side effects associated with them. My neighbor is on Prozac and she says it keeps her on track. Out of the list below, Cymbalta and Celexa seem to have the least amount of side effects.

Effexor XR
Cymbalta
Celexa
Lexapro
Prozac
Paxil
Pexeva
Zoloft

The ones with even less side effects are:

Elavil
Norpramin
Tofranil
Aventyl
Pamelor

There's always hope, so go see your doctor as soon as possible. Things might seem grim right now, but there's always light at the end of the tunnel and people on your side.
Good luck on your interview and don't give up.

I'll keep you in my thoughts.
