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?
