• Hi - if you have tried to donate and found that it hasn't worked please can you hit me up in PM? (Freya) I am trying to figure out with paypal what the issue is and they are asking for more data. It doesn't seem to be affecting everyone. Thank you so much :)

Do anti-depressants really help?

I was on them from April-June last year, but I got sick of taking them.. Especially since being on them made me shake like crazy sometimes. >.<
Now my case manager and doctor want me to back on them since the last few months I've been going way down hill..
Do any of you guys take anti-depressants, and have you noticed any changes since taking them? And would it be a good idea to go back on different ones? :/

the first ones didn't help me but the second ones worked great. wellbutrin xl. nothing to lose by asking for something with less side effects. good luck.

If you find the right one for you and correct dose then yes, they can/do help.

The only benefit of going back onto ones that you have previously tried, is if you were going to work on the dosage.

i've been on them since aug and i take three different things and i really don't think they are helping. but i'm going to talk to my person and see if we can raise the doses or try something else.
