Our expert says:
Hadnt come across BMD before, but wherever there's a long-winded term, there'll be an abbreviation. Anxiety and depression are twins, often occurring together, and some drugs which can be used to treat depression can cause a degree of anxiety, especially in the early weeks when one's system is getting used to them.
Good for you for working on exploring alternative ways of intervening to reduce depression ( and indeed anxiety )
Have you discussed these anxiety episodes with your prescribing shrink ? Such symptoms CAn be related to the meds, alone or in combiantion, and a variation may remove them. Sometimes there needs to be a period, often longer than one would wish, of trial and error, to find the best combination of meds, but it is indeed possible for most people with such a disorder to achieve a more or less stable and acceptable life.
