Relpase: I encourage you to get more support than medication in order to get into health and recovery. Your doc can comment on the use of meds; I won't. Please continue to see him/her. Please consider inpatient treatment, a 12 step program w/regular meetings, a sponsor, whatever it takes. Please make freedom from this your present goal. The very best to you. Peace and good health.
