Do you have any advice for coping with the emotional challenges?

    After my Lupron shot, I developed severe depression and at first saw a psychologist. But she soon recognized I needed much more help than she could give me and sent me to a psychiatrist about 2 1/2 years ago. Ultimately I was on the maximum dosage of two antidepressants for almost two years. Happy to say my psychiatrist is letting me reduce one of the antidepressants (I’m at half the original dosage, and I think I’ll be able to come down even further). But depression is a tough mental challenge that almost all people need help with if it’s even moderate, not to mention severe. I’m quite extroverted and have found that getting out with and involved with people has also been very helpful. (This is coming to you from my daughter’s home where 3 grandchildren REALLY help with it also.) Len Smith ProstateCancer.net Moderator
