My son suffers from depression and anxiety. I don't know which is the worse-he seems to spin in and out of both. He has been prescribed a log of drugs: paxil, seroquel, seroquel RX, buspar and finally Effexor. These drugs have sent him to the brink of despair with suicide as the only solution to his problem. I have supported him thru this medley of drugs which have not to date solved his depression and anxiety. Most have worsened his condition and he is very weary of any further medication. He presently sees a psychiatrist (who prescribes these drugs) and a psychologist to help him develop behavorial techniques to help him thru depression and anxiety. He presently takes Effexor (150mg) and Seroquel as needed but the results are slow in coming. Can anyone recommend any medication that has worked and the time taken to have these medications kick in to relieve symptoms. I have received suggestions about thyroid problems and Vitamin D deficiency. If anyone has further suggestions or avenues to take, please let me know. I suffer from Fibro and try to support him thru this problem but I feel time is running out and a solution must be found for him.
