I will tell you that after 8 weeks on the appropriate dose of Effexkr, my depression lifted, which was a BIG relief
. I still have mild I moderate anxiety
, but anxiety, accordingly my pdoc is harder to treat than depression. It takes longer for it to resolve. Ask your doc about medication and don't give up. It can be a long road, but u WILL make it. And try not to worry about other possible health issues. Depression and anxiety is enough to deal with and get over.
