What’s everyone’s experience been taking antidepressants and if you haven’t started what’s stopping you?

      I was on Lexapro and it did help with the lows but I felt numb to all strong emotions good and bad which I was indifferent about. I tapered off of it and haven’t been on it since

      Best decision I ever made (I take mine for anxiety tho). I've had minimal side effects and its made my anxiety so much better. Gave me my life back

      I've been on Lexapro before. That didn't work for me, but I've been taking Bupropion, Fluoxetine and Hydroxyzine and those work pretty well for me. I just hate that I have to take them in the first place. Also, because of my medication, I have gained a lot of weight along with my unhealthy eating habits. I'm definitely trying work on the part I can control though.

        @Radioactive nothing wrong with needing to take medication 💕 what’s important is finding what’s right for you! I can relate to the weight gain. It’s definitely a struggle

      I unfortunately have dealt with treatment resistant depression, so I've been on a ton of antidepressants that haven't worked. The ones that worked the best for me have been viibryd and Wellbutrin though. I'm currently doing TMS therapy in place of meds now.

        @Snark if you don’t mind me asking, how’s your experience with TMS been?

          @Messier87 it's been interesting. It's coming up on my 6th week. I've felt a little bit of improvement. Not as much as I'd hoped but at least it's not completely empty ya know. I have to travel over an hour to and from 5 days a week though so that sucks lol
