I'm getting ready in about 4 days to start Trintellex. it seems to have more side affects then what I previously read. I have no choice but to stop the Cymbalta ice got a bad liver and the Cymbalta is really hard on a liver so it's time to switch just weening off the Cymbalta haa mDe my depression even worse. Also has anyone.tried the eskatamine I'm curious on personL opinions ND whether it helped you and if not how did it affect you I've been approved ND my insurance will pY for it I just can't drive over 3 hours there and 3 back same day or afford to stay the night if no one cMe with me.
Chronic Generalized pain
I'm on Trintellix been on it with Rexulti at first it was great after awhile not so much
It doesn't really help with my anxiety
I used to be on Paxil for depression and Bupropion for anxiety for years then they quit working a new dr switch me to the new combo and back to square one
I switched from Lexapro to Trintellix and the switch was pretty smooth and even improved my depression lethargy. I’m not 100% if you were asking about Ketamine, but I have tried it for extreme pain and it’s amazing! I had it administered at a hospital at a low dose and it improved my pain completely for 48 hours.
And I think it helped me understand how much my pain is directly connected to my emotional state
I wish my hospital would do that. I've heard good stuff about that med. My pain is all the time. I am aware that ketamine is also very easy to get addicted to.
there’s two ways that I know of that are legal to have it in our state (CO). One is by emergency in the ER, and the other is at an Alternative Medicine Clinic. There clinics have FDA clearance to administer therapeutic doses of ketamine for patients with qualifying conditions. They do it all in the clinic, and monitor you during your session to make sure your vitals are good and can measure your reactions to it, as everyone is different. Then you schedule more visits (usually at minimum 2-4 weeks out from first appt). Most insurances don’t yet cover this kind of treatment (that I’m aware of). Out of pocket, one treatment costs upwards of $400.
I'm on Trintellix and have done really well on it. It's expensive, but the company will work with you and send discounts and stuff to help pay for it if your insurance doesn't.
I'm on I think 10mgs I'm hoping it can be upped. I've plateau'd very quick. Both the Dr and I thought I would. I also take rexalti with it so far.ive been happy with the rexalti I start that one about 7 months ago.
I'm really lucky my insurance covers it
I was told I couldn’t do the eskatamine was not recommended for people with Bipolar Disorder. I ended up getting an IV treatment of Ketamine in a pain management doctor’s office. Was told insurance wouldn’t cover it so I had to pay 💰 out of pocket $500 for 1 treatment…. I slept a little while I had the infusion but it did not help me emotionally or for my pain level. Then my doctor had an emergency come up when he was to do an injection on my back. So someone else treated me but didn’t want to help or listen to anything I had to say at that injection. Let me say it was the last time o went there. (Oh and the doctor I was seeing- was unavailable for the next scheduled appointment I basically told the receptionist to kiss my @$$). I was never coming back .
I know sometimes Dr's. Don't listen and that cab be traumatizing unfortunately there are Dr's like that. But u have the right to switch Dr's until u find one who listens. It helps me a lot to talk to my therapist when that happens.
first got to have a therapist. I switched that recently. Previous one was only scheduling me for 30 minutes every other week.
