    So I got some medication today to help with depression and to relax etc. I know the anti depressant will take a long time to work...so I have been told. But how long til it helps even a little bit? Also so far I like the med they gave me to relax. It stops a lot of the stress for me. But they only gave me ten doses of that. What happens when it's gone? Will I be back to square one in how awful I felt? Is any of this stuff addicting? I just hope I'm not trading one problem for another. But for the moment I am EXTREMELY grateful that the overwhelming stress is tamed. What else can I expect from now on? What is your experience with meds helping...or not?

    It can be addicting. Anti depressant pills don't really work for. But I take Xanax and that works for me, it helps with my depression cause it comes me down, makes sleepy/calm.

    I have known people who did not care that the particular anti-depressants they are on were addictive, Because they gave them a quality of life they could not otherwise have had.

    I hope the pills take effect before the other pills are gone. I do think its possible this can happen.

    Just please know that sometimes antidepressants can be a life saver. I have seen it in people irl. In which case, there would be no need to worry about them being addictive, or not. You could just stay on them and live a better life.
