My phychiatrist RX me celexa for depression ~
Then he tryed me on 5 types of anphedamien type Meds for ADHD
Thoes Meds freaked me out I thought to myself. ppl actually get addicted to this stuff?
But when I asked him to RX me enough Lorazepam , the smallest does 0.5 msg i think, enough for 1 or 2 tabs a week he about had a cow .
Yet he'd give me anphedameins, up to 30 mg 2x's a day?
I wish I never when to him and stayed with my primary Dr as he had RX it for me with one refil.
Anyway I'm going to see the shrink next week, it's been three months. Tobeg him toperscribe me the Lorazapam as I stated above..
If he fights me on this I'm asking him why it's ok fir me to take anphedamins with my celex and not the smal does of the Lorazapam I'm asking fir for anxiety attacks?
Hard for me to fight for myself YET I've had to do it all my life .

The approach from Psychiatrist versus PCP is quite different. And honestly, PCP do not know the consequences and long term side effects of medications nor how to properly diagnose. When the patients become complicated due to medications and they are referred to psychiatrist, the damage was done and it is very difficult to bring you back to your usual self.
Celexa increases serotonin and your brain adapt to this massive increase by decreasing dopamine. With low dopamine you feel tired, inattentive and lacking motivation to function. Now they are adding amphetamines to bring back up the dopamine (after Pharmaceutical started using this strategy). High level of dopamine and Serotonin is a very dangerous situation for the brain and you become unpredictable and at risk of acting impulsively. The most reasonable approach is to lower the Celexa to allow your normal dopamine tone to normalize. Stimulants cause anxiety, cardiac problems, insomnia and you are not "you" in the eyes of the people who knows you,nor make you brighter: people's improvement with stimulants is directly related to your intelligence.

Re: Polo (# 1)

i feel I figured it out myself with how I felt on and off celexa.
I am see a phychiatrist now.
The best counselor I’ve ever had. My insurance would NOT pay for a lesser degree counselor.
The Lorazapam is the only med I take now whenever my sever anxiaty gets outa gand and I only take one a day at a X.
I warned myself off of celexa. Not hard as I was only taking 25?mil per day
Again THANKX for affirming what I’ve come to for myself. Why doesn’t my phychiatrist know this about the meds u said and how do u know this? Are u a dr? I really want to know Rainie
