Does Lexapro work for generalized anxiety disorder and depression?

Question from Jessica B.:

I've been prescribed 10Mg Lexapro for generalized anxiety disorder and mild to moderate depression. Does this med work?

I'm an older guy and have lived with sometimes severe anxiety and depression all my life but lately it's getting worse. Genetics because of my dad has passed it onto me.

Only one more refill on wellbutrin prescription…no more insurance…help?

Question from Abigail N.:

Ok so here's my dilemma: I was prescribed Wellbutrin and have been taking it for about 3 months. I was on a college medical discount plan so it didn't cost much to see a doctor. Well, I graduated in December and haven't found a job yet, so don't really have access to affordable healthcare. I also found out any insurance i buy on my own won't cover existing medical conditions. The problem is that my prescription only has one refill left. I'm not looking for cheap underground medication or anything, just advice. What do you think I should do? I feel like I'd be in a really bad place if I had to stop it cold turkey…thanks for your time!

In less then two minutes, she will vomit and hopefully bring them up.,

Aaron Cunningham wrote:

First off- you should call your vet ASAP, the antacid might not be too big a deal, but the thyroid meds could be, once you get done at the vets, do yourself and your dog a favor, and move everything that could be hazardous if chewed or ingested where the dog can't get it. Then I guess you need to call your doctor and get new prescriptions.

Can Short Sales Help Avoid Foreclosure?

When the housing boom was in full swing people were desperate to buy homes because prices were going through the roof and people did not want to miss out on the chance to own a home. Lenders were happy to offer ridiculous loans in order to make sales. People didn’t even have to prove they had income, and requiring down payments was pass. Adjustable rate mortgages were very popular.

After all, if home prices just kept going up faster and faster, the increased value of the home would be able to cover any increases in monthly payments. Of course the bubble finally burst a couple of years ago, prices dropped drastically in the hottest markets, and now almost one fourth of all mortgages in the U.S. are under water, which of course means that the amount of money owed on the property is more than what the home could be sold for.
