I recently have gotten off of medication, Efexor was my most recent medication but I believe I've been on 6 different types within the past 3 years. I didn't feel helped at all by medication, or if anything numbed and felt as though my depression and anxiety got worse. I'm a bit apprehensive about starting medication again considering all the negative side effects I went through, but I was wondering what other treatments there was. Any herbs, therapies, or even just generally enjoyable things that would help while I'm figuring out the next steps in treatment?

      I take medication but also there was a time when I went to group therapy for my chronic disease and I really enjoyed it. Everyone shared their story and it made me feel a part of something big and that I'm doing good thing for myself - ever since I joined this app I've felt this great feeling again

      I didn’t like my past medications but Lexapro has been wonderful. Only side effect is dry mouth. Who cares! I’m no longer having thoughts of suicide
