Not been so good for few weeks,some of you gave helpful advice when I had cystitis so what your opinions are on my latest prescriptions would be welcome.. , I have been totally wiped out and cannot eat normal meals so my son came up with meal replacements, GP approved. And had a discussion with me and her regarding anxiety and depression.The pills take weeks to kick in so watch this space,tell me your experiences.x
I think you may be talking about Ensure meal replacements. My mother was prescribed these and found them very good, but she was advised to take in addition to a small meal, not completely instead of eating.
Your GP should be able to prescribe Ensure drinks, they are fine in the very short-term but, as Farmor says, best as a supplement as they should ensure you get the right vitamins etc if your appetite is poor.
I don't know about the medication, sorry. Your GP is the best one to talk to about that.
Megs - I was prescribed antidepressants during my difficult divorce , but I’ll be honest, they did nothing for me. As for Ensure, I have heard of it but know nothing about it, sorry. Hope you get sorted. Yes, antidepressants do take a couple of weeks to take effect. Don’t give up. You must persevere.
