    Suzi, if you don't mind me asking ?Were they prescribed for depression or anxiety? My depression I am pretty sure is caused by anxiety.

    I’ve done the rounds with meds too. Citalopram, Sertraline, Fluoxetine, Duloxetine, Imipramine, Amitriptyline and Mirtazapine. I’ve been on a combo of Duloxetine and Mirtazapine for a few years now and it keeps me relatively stable most of time.

    Yep. Same here. Citalopram, sertraline, mirtazapine, sertraline and mirtazapine, escitalopram, duloxetine, venlafaxine, fluoxetine and am now on paroxetine, which although don't work great, help to reduce the suicidal thoughts and thoughts of self harming.

    I'm on propanolol for anxiety. It doesn't cure it but works to reduce the physical symptoms so it's much easier to deal with.

    Jaquaia you have reminded me that I take bisoprolol for my heart as I had a heart attack about 7 years ago.

    My husband took bisoprolol, but he had horrible side effects and stopped taking it very quickly lol.. Yes all were prescribed to him via his GP or a psych - there's another one, but I can't remember which one it was.... All originally prescribed for depression - but the fluoxetine is known to help both - as is the venlafexine that he's on now. Also he's had a long time of psychotherapy too.
