Cant relax at all, if I'm doing nothing I feel like I'm going backwards but often theres nothing more I can do and it's just exhausting.

How are you getting on with the Aripiprazole so far and how long have you been taking this drug now ?

Hello Stephen, please give the Aripiprazole 4 to 5 weeks to see the positive changes it will bring, it will take this long to work in your bodies system :)

Yes, it takes time to see if the meds help, more than a month. Give them a chance. The Trazodone is good for inducing sleep. I take it occasionally for that purpose.

Trazodone is great. It helped me a lot. I used to take ot when I was living in the Usa. Now I live in south america and they dont sell trazodone here. I am using clonazepan and alprazam to sleep.

I use alprazolam also, but I have to limit its use. It has a dependence, and then I cannot stop using, become totally dependent. Then there is a tolerance that develops, and need increasing dose. But it is helpful, when I do use it. I am from U.S. originally, but changing location did not change me. Unfortunately, I bring myself and my problems with me.

I just read that ketamine is used for anesthesia. That's why after all the surgeries I had I used to wake up so happy and relaxed. The feeling used to last for two days. I very much doubt that we can be able to get some ketamine. It is a controled substance.

I try to limit my alprazolam intake. I usualy take half of a pill in the morning (25mg). The mornings for me are the most difficult part of the day.

Ketamine is used in anesthesia, but it has recently been found to be a potent antidepressant. I formulation has been approved by the FDA for it.
