I recently quit taking Effexor under a doctors supervision. This was because my insurance would not pay for it anymore. Since then I have been on Prozac and now Lexapro. I feel awful and depressed, anxious, suicidal ect. Please give me some insight to this. My depression was very controlled before we started screwing with my meds. Please reply at your earliest convinience...I am very afraid.

Response from Dr. Henry

You need to talk to your HIV specialist and /or psychiatrist to discuss your heightened depression immediately or go to a crisis center to get some help. KH
