Do you like being on antidepressants?!

Question: Do you like being on antidepressants?

I was reluctant several years ago due to the fact that I thought the antidepressant itself would make me "crazy", but I tried zoloft (made me feel like a zombie), Lexapro was a godsend and helped me out for about 1 1/2 years then the effectiveness wore off. I then went on Effexor XR 75 mgs for 2 years and it worked excellent for anxiety but no good for the sex drive. Do to being laid off I had to quit the Effexor XR cold turkey. The first couple of days were hell, but I got through it day by day. If you are in need that is why they are there and don't be scared of them making you "crazy" or "suicidal" because they actually help you. It may take a couple of tries since everyone is different, but you will find the right med for you.

I use them for anti - anxiety purposes. I don't like being on them because I don't like putting anything "unnatural" in my body yet I do like them because they help me manage my high anxiety level.

It's a love-hate relationship.

I was on them before, I hated it! I didn't feel like myself at all. Thankfully I'm off of them now.

I love it, but i think it made me gain weight, like 10-15 lbs!
