I'm on Lustral 50 from 15 Days for Depression & Anxiety, I feel good times since 3 days but it's not permanent and I return back, Am I on right track?

Outlook: I would feel encouraged by the positive times. You have not been on the medication for very long. A healthy attitude will allow you to reflect on the increasing positives rather than focusing on the lower points. Take care. ...Read more

Alternatives: Your dr might be right and the best course of action would be meds. However, as a patient, and mostly if there is no serious risk to you or others, you may consider non-pharmacological approaches (psychotherapy, other alternative approved tools). Lifestyle changes (you mention stress, fatigue, anxiety; vacation, diet, leisure, sports, etc) along with dr guidance/checkups, may do miracles sometimes. ...Read more
