Ok, went to the dr (psychiatrist) who handles or I should say handled my anxiety and depression dx. He told me that anxiety had absolutely nothing to do with fibro (are you kidding me?) and they were two separate entities and the articles I read on internet were just a bunch of people writing about things they knew nothing about (paraphrasing/my interpretation) I told him that I had stopped my anti-depressants because I didn't feel well when I took them and I felt like someone had turned my engine off and I felt like I was neither progressing nor digressing. Kinda like being stuck in neutral. He prescribes xanax for my anxiety which does work and I'm on a low dose. He told me that if I didn't get back on the anti-depressants (175 mg of effexor or stronger if I liked) that within two weeks my anxiety would be worse and so would my quality of life. Fortunately for me he is moving his practice to a hospital and I will have to see another doctor. Also he gave my refills to last thru Dec. which gives me a good amount of time to locate another doctor. I really just wanted to .......well I guessing you can fill in the breaks. It irks me so when drs act as if we do not know our bodies or that we are idiots bowing down to them to obtain their info from their vast wisdom. (I am not new to anti-depressants, been on and off of them for years)I have tried so many different anti-depressants that for me I have become anti anti-depressant. (I am not new to anti-depressants, been on and off of them for years)d But the cllincher for me was that anxieity and fibro were not conneced. So tired of this DD! BTW, please I don't mean to use this community to simply complains, tho that is what I have done the last posts, pleaes if I can be of any help, I am there.
