I need your doctor!
Couldn't agree more.If it works keep taking it, if not speak up about it. No point taking something that’s not working properly. You have to find what works best for you. The only way to do that is tell the doctor if it’s working or not.
I don't take anything. I have tried all but the most recent, newer ones and none worked. I was also on Gabapentin, but not for depression/anxiety, for nerve pain and seizures. Side effects were too bad for me to continue taking that.
