I've had both for the longest time. My psychiatrist put me on a new anti depressant called Effexor 75 mgs. And I've been on soooooo many anti depressants since I was 13. Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Buspur, Cymbalta, Wellbutrin, Pristiq, Remeron, Trazadone, etc. I feel like a gini pig. They've never really put me on any anxiety meds because some of them are considered narcotics and I used to be a drug addict. I still have panic attacks sometimes. I used to cut myself, hit myself, punch walls to relieve the pain. They admitted me into a mental institution when I was 15 for 2 months for suicidal/homicidal tendencies. I tried killing myself 6 times, overdose-twice, cutting, trying to jump off bridges, walking into traffic. I've gotten a little better but still need help that's why I'm seeing a therapist now, and I think she's going to be my savior this time. I have to put all my effort this time, because I'm sick of feeling so low and having panic attacks all the time. I want to be happy, and dammit I'm going to give it my all. 10 years I've been struggling with depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder, it's definitely time for a change for the better.
