Is anyone on medications for depression? I’ve been on meds the past 3 years and I haven’t had a depressive episode. It used to be so debilitating and I couldn’t function without being sad for no reason. Now that I’m medicated I’m glad that I don’t have these feelings but it’s almost like nothing phases me anymore. It’s like the total opposite of how I was before. Can anyone relate?

      I've been on two different meds for my depression: escitalopram (Lexapro) a few years ago, and now I'm on duloxetine (Cymbalta). The escitalopram didn't work that well and I felt much the same. I'm having better luck with duloxetine

      I was on anti anxiety/anti depressants for years and hated that I had no feelings at all. I didn't care about anything. I got to a point that I was so "happy" that I went off my meds. It's been a year without them. I feel better but still learning coping skills.

      Wellbutrin here for more than 5 years and is doing good for me, but as others said there are still some days knock us down but we get back up as best we can 😊😊

      I've have been on medicine for depression for years. I know what it's like to try and deal with depression with and without medicine. For me personally I don't like myself or the way I feel when I'm not on meds. I like being able to feel like me and not some crying person who doesn't know what's wrong. Sure I still have my days when I am a little depressed but a little is better than not being medicated for it for me.

      Do you think that you don't need to be on them? Is life a better now? Or do you think it meds are just working well? Is it worth the risk of getting off your meds?

      I am in the process of my meds being switched and really hope to feel the same way you do
