When nate was first diagnosed, they put him on Elavil, Trazadone and Lexapro.
I’m not sure why so many but it really helped him get through the really tough time when he was paralyzed from shoulders down.
I can’t imagine having to go through what he did. I would have been nuts really fast.
His new neuro took him off elavil though to see if it had any positive effect on his bladder dysfunction.
So far it hasn’t though but its only been two weeks. He is doing ok though as far as not having any worse depression symptoms.
I’ll benefit from this post too. For the first time, I’m admitting that I probably need anti-depressants, because for the past six months, I’ve been aware that I’ve been having bouts of weepy depression, CAUSE, FRUSTRATION FRUSTRATION FRUSTRATION, it’s so hard for me to move forward. Now, I have an idea of what medication to try.
