You have a 1 year old-that is 10 full time jobs itself. His parents should be happy w/whatever amount of work you do get done. I'm a stay-at-home mommy & wife and I have a 4 month old. I take care of my daughter 1st and housework gets done 2nd. Most nights I am up to 2am cleaning up the house, doing laundry etc. So you are not 'just whining', maybe they need to look at what you do do, you have a 1 year old! Have you talked to your husband? His parents really shouldn't be getting on your case and yes, that will wear a person down. Have you talked to a therapist about your depression? Sounds like you do have alot on your plate. You ddon't have to have an unhappy life to be clinically depressed. I don't know of the med you are trying to find out about, maybe someone else on here will. But congradulations on getting married!!!!!

Hi Lacy
I always found that Lexapro worked so well for me, the problem was that my insurance would not pay for it, now I just received the new formulary of covered drugs and Lexapro will be covered with authorization from the doctor. I was taking citalorpam (sp) and it did NOTHING. When given samples of Lexapro I noticed such a difference, however the cost is in excess of hundreds of dollars if you choose to pay for it. It is IMHO the best one on the market and when I see my shrinkette I'm going to ask her for Lexapro, not citalopram in its stead. Researching the maker may help perhaps I can get them free from the manufacturer, I don't know yet all I do know is that it is a wonderful antidepressant, and I THINK there is something in the medication for anxiety as well. IMHO the best one for me.
Why not ask your doctor about this drug, mine doesn't get the samples any longer and I can't pay for it thats a fact.

If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.
