      I found drugs or only a way to mask a problem are you not change things or get rid of any longer than a moment. In The End hard work discipline and responsibility of the only things I have found that actually work

      Sertraline has been best for my PTSD it’s the depression side of it that seems to last so I recommend getting that treated

      I started on citalopram (Celexa) and did that for a while before I realized I just felt numb on it. I'm currently doing venlafaxine (Effexor) and it's done wonders for me. I also take hydroxyzine in conjunction (daily and PRN for anxiety) and use Xanax when I get panic attacks that my hydroxyzine doesn't help with. It can be a journey to find out what works best for you. Your doc will probably start you on an SSRI first and wait to see how it does for you before switching if necessary. Sending hugs xxx

      My doctor also had me do a DNA test. I'm currently on a myriad of meds for myself but for PTSD I'm on Depakote and anxiety I'm on gabapentin and buspar. I'm not keen on benzos or Xanax, as I'm a recovering addict.

      Went with Venlafaxine after using Escitalopram. Much better to me personally and had little to no side effects compared to Escitalopram. Best is to try and fimd what is better suited to you and change if needed to try something different for your situation like I did.

      I always preferred SNRIs vs SSRIs. Wellbutrin is a good one, and then low dose as needed ativan for anxiety. It doesn’t make you as drowsy as most benzos. And then a CPAP for your apnea!

      My Doctor had me take a DNA test. He recommended Celexa based on the results.

Some medications that have been mentioned for depression and anxiety include Lexapro, Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, and Citalopram. For PTSD, escitalopram and Prozac have been mentioned as helpful. However, it is important to consult a doctor to determine the best medication for your specific needs. For sleep apnea, weight loss has been suggested as a potential solution, but it's essential to consult with a healthcare professional for proper guidance.
