      Xanax made a huge difference in my life, and medical marijuana also helped me get my life back under control. However I've had a fairly negative reaction to most antidepressants, they either make me always asleep, kill my appetite, churn my stomach, or if I'm on more than one at a time I get very foggy. But that could also just be how it interacts with the med card/Xanax/my allergies lol. A lot of my family does really well with antidepressants but bad with anti anxiety. How fun the human body can be/sarcasm

      The right medication does work but if you have never taken anti depressants.. they do not work over night . They take at least three weeks to set in the system and that is only if taken correctly not skipping . Not all meds are equal what works on say your friend may not work well for you. I have been on seven or more til I got on Zoloft.. my daughter it did not work she is on something different that did not work well on me 😊

      I am a completely different person since being on my Zoloft. I totally recommend trying medication. It works.
