Deplin is a pure form of Folic acid. You need a prescription for it. I don't know why

Do a search, maybe?

I'm bored so I'll do it :)

How severe is your anxiety (untreated)... Google the Beck Anxiety Inventory and do the self test.

If you fall in the higher end of the "moderate" category, or in the "severe" category, I really think you need a slow acting, strong benzo like Klonopin or Ativan

Source: I have severe GAD and these are the ONLY things that work for me, and they work pretty well. I've tried a number of things, including Lexapro without a benzo, and received no joy.

Hi, I work with Deplin. Just to give you some information on Deplin, it is L-methylfolate, and is prescribed to augment other treatment for major depressive disorder. Deplin works through a natural process in the brain to manage the monamines associated with mood. L-methylfolate, when taken with anti-depressants, provides greater improvement in depression symptoms in a shorter period of time than compared to antidepressant monotherapy. Hope this information helps.

Irritability and anxiousness are symptoms of depression. Deplin is currently indicated as adjunctive therapy to an antidepressant, such as Lexapro. Please talk to your doctor about whether Deplin is right for you.

Irritability and Axiety are BOT NECESSARILY symptoms of depression.

There may be an underlying, separate condition (eg. GAD or Social Anxiety for Anxiety; bipolar for irritability etc.)

well I"ve debated taking celexa again, but is the extreme sedation and tiredness worth it? I hate to even think about it, and what about the strange sensations it gives you in your muscles? That totally sucks.

haven't you been on lexapro a long time though? You seem to lack describing words when you respond, what's up with that ? Anyways hope your doing alright. I am trying cymbalta yet again, this whole cycle is just ridiculous. I just feel so fatigued alot of times at work and it totally sucks. So sick of feeling tired.
