Yesterday morning my boss came in to see how I was doing. He asked, "So, ya give any more money away?"
We both laughed. "It's good we can laugh about it," he said.

That part is going to be okay. I'm going to call my physician on Monday to see if I can get my scrips expedited. Emotionally, I'm stable right now. I think I'll make it until I can resume taking all my damn pills.

Thanks for being such a good group, guys. I'm glad we have this place.

Chuck

I think I can speak for the entire motley crew when I say that I'm glad to hear that things seem to be getting better for you.


Here's hoping that you can get your meds taken care of in a speedy manner.

Chuck, I talked to one of my best friends who is a psychiatrist and he said samples are hard to get for SSRIs.

I am going off Celexa because after a month it's still making me nauseous, drowsy, and continually-needing-to-stretchy all day. This is weird because it's one of the meds least known for having bad side effects. I'm just on the wrong end of the bell curve this time.

Anyway, I don't know what you're on but it's overwhelmingly likely you are on Celexa (citalopgram) or a similar SSRI. I have over a month's supply at 20mg and you're welcome to it if you can get me an address. It's a cheap prescription and whoever is prescribing it for you would probably switch you over unless you are having an extraordinary outcome with your present depression meds.

The meds have arrived. At long last.

Rick, what I'm on is Prozac. I've taken Celexa before and it worked just fine. If you have no use for it, I'd gladly take it off your hands. How would you like to proceed?

Chuck, I've been too nauseous and sick to even get on the Pavilion much. I also must have marked this thread read on my last visit somehow. On the plus side, I now have a nice collection of Effexor as well, or as I call it, "the vertigo pill". I've been off it 4 days and now I'm down to just Wellbutrin. Or, as I call it, "The Tiny Purple Tablet of the Sleepless Night."

If I can still help, send me an email at rick@rickwyatt.com with an address.

Thanks, Rick. I think I'm all set now, so there's no need. I do appreciate it. I hope the side effects you're experiencing get better. They seem to really suck. I've been very lucky that way. Zoloft is intermittently effective, putting me on a bit of a roller coaster, so that's one med I can't rely on.
