Seems you have a lot of understanding of the problems related to therapy. Like I said, I've had some, but it wasn't psychoanalysis, if I understand it correctly. Anyway, whether it is behavioral therapy, drug therapy, or both, help can be had, but it takes a long time. The drug thereapy that I've received for ocd, bipolar/major depression and anxiety have had an amazing affect on me, BUT, I'm still "TESTING" the drugs. After all, even the doctors don't have a clue as to the effect (affect?) of specific drugs for specific people until they try them for a good period of time, and then it might not work at all. Phew, seems I'm going on a little bit. Oh well...
Here are the Prescriptions I've used over the last @ 2 years:
Elavil - 4 months - Some relief but tired and headaches.
Paxil and Neurontin - Worked wonders for me, the most definate positive effects, but pooped out after about 6 months.
Effexor and Neurontin - 2 month trial. Some relief but BAD headaches.
Prozac and Neurontin - Good results again but not as good as Paxil - and lathargic - Prozac pooped out after 6 months
Prozac, Neurontin and Lithium - 2 months of hell for me. I had a terrible time with the addition of the Lithium. It was supposed to jump start the Prozac again, but terrible side effects.
Celexa, Remeron and Nurontin - to present - seems to be working quite well with little or no side effects. Hope this one continues to work. If not, I'll go on the the next.
I'm putting this all out here so that if anyone who is reading this happens to have some problems, there is help, and it does work. Don't get discouraged if things don't change for you over night. It is a major life change after all.
Oh yeah, who is Tool???
