A lot has changed in the last year. I am significantly less depressed, I am handling anxiety like a mentally healthy adult (even though I'm still quite sick), and I'm on the right medication
Still have not taken any Xanax after quitting. I won't lie when I say I have wanted some so badly. But things aren't as bothersome anymore as they were when I quit. I'm pretty certain things are getting better :)
Tomorrow makes it 6 weeks I have been off of Xanax after 2 years. I can't even begin to tell you how much better I feel without it.
Hey, I saw your status, and while I'm sorry you had such a bad experience with Cymbalta, you can't lump all medications into one category. Medications like Cymbalta have helped MILLIONS of people, myself included. Meds aren't for everyone, but try not to paint with a broad brush..not everyone will have the issues you did and everyone needs to allow themselves to have their own unique experience!
