hello fraggie and welcome to our little corner of the internet ;)

I think you will find this a very friendly and supportive place to be.

Sounds like you're haveing a pretty tough time right now. I'm so sorry to hear you are feeling so empty and dead inside. My heart goes out to you as you struggle with this.

Have you talked to your doctor about your concerns with your meds???? Sometimes it takes awhile to find the right medication or combination of medications that will help you feel better. Can you talk about how you are feeling now compared to how you were feeling before being on this combination of medications?? You can practice with us and then bring this information to your Dr if you're comfortable with that :)

I'm also wondering if you are in therapy??? That combined with medication has a better chance of good results.

Howdy fraggie and welcome here :(

Hard to know if you're overmedicated without knowing your history and a whole bunch of other stuff about you - ie, not something one can tell over the internet.

But as danni says, if you're concerned about too many meds, discuss it with your pdoc? I'm another who can heartily recommend psychotherapy. Therapy + meds is like 1 + 1 = 3. :)
