I am a 20 y/o female with anxiety and depression, I have forgotten to take my antidepressants all week, and have experienced some side effects such as: major depression, easily irritated, confusion, and tiredness even some chest pains for the last few days. Has anyone else experienced symptoms when they forgot to take their medication, or do you think something else may be going on?

      If I miss my meds more than once in a week I usually get extremely depressed. It's definitely typical when you forget to take them

      that just sounds like withdrawal to me. very common if you stop taking your medication abruptly. like haliz said, antidepressants are a drug. your body becomes dependent on them after consistent use. though that isn't necessarily a bad thing, as the benefits of antidepressants can outweigh negative effects from dependency. unlike street/recreational drugs, though, it's quite easy to stop taking the medication and avoid withdrawal altogether when you and your doctor feel you're ready. weaning the dose down gradually typically doesn't result in withdrawal in my experience.
