So I finally bit the bullet this morning and went to see my GP about what has been going on with me recently.

Not really wanting to rehash a very tough, long and emotionally draining morning, the short story is that we, my GP and I, have decided to get me started on a course of anti-depressants and sleeping pills. I’ll meet back with him every week for the next few weeks to monitor my progress, and will eventually look at starting CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy).

So what I want to know is this: Has anyone ever had any experience with taking, or someone they know taking Fluvoxamine? What are the side effects of these pills? Did you/they find them particularly helpful in addressing the depressive state?

While I’ve been on antidepressants before on and off for the last 15 years, the tablets I’ve had have been Zoloft and Cipramil. And while these pills were effective, they did give me severe tremors that took a year to subside AFTER I ceased the medication.

The sleeping tablets I’ve been given is Temaze or Temazepam.  I’ve had them before but not really found them very effective in the past. Maybe with the new antidepressants it might be a different story?

I WILL go into how this appointment all came about – just not today. It was hard enough this morning. When it’s not all raw and all-encompassing, then I’ll fill you in.

Thankyou for reading and sticking with me though. It does mean a lot.
