the opposite of causing fatigue. They make you feel more hyper, I guess.

I'm starting to get anxious and scared the whole time, I don't really trust medications and doctors even less. I had a lovely old doctor but she's retired..I miss her heaps she always left me feeling better just by talking to me.

I've got valium but it just makes me super tired and I just want to lie down and sleep but sometimes my panic wakes me up from even this drug induced sleep. I'm getting very tired of being scared.

My dr. just added Abilify to the mix a week ago. Has anybody taken that? It's 2 mg at bedtime. I wonder just how many drugs it will take to shake me out of this. You'd think I'd be happy as crap.

Cymbalta 60 mg
Lexapro 20 mg
(these are in the a.m.)

Hydroxyzine 100 mg
Buspirone 20 mg
Abilify 2 mg
(these are at bedtime)

I still have anxiety though it is usually less intense. I also have had a couple of times of the extreme anxiety/panic break through.

I feel like just going off of everything and seeing how that is. It would be less expensive!!!!!!!!! I can't believe how much all this costs.
