They make me pretty impulsive and antisocial, but it's better than being depressed and ashamed.

Was on Zoloft for about 9 months. Coupled with Xanax and therapy, I feel like they really helped me out of a dark place. Lots of people will say they're a fraud or that they didn't work for them, but usually those people are the ones that refuse to help themselves. You can't expect antidepressants to be a magical cure all if you're not willing to put forth some effort in order to make changes.

was on celexa for 3 months, nothing at all. just starting on effexor, i hope theyll work for me

>>25809329
how can they make you more antisocial

I recently took propylhexadrine which is very similar to meth, and I was happy, confident, optimistic, and could talk to anyone about anything effortlessly and it made me think

that it has been in me all along and that is what it is like to be normal and maybe there is just some small amount of some chemical in my brain that is
there in the wrong amount
>>25809354
even seeing a psychiatrist is a big effort
>>
I was on Lexapro for a year. Didn't feel any different. They gave me a prescription to another drug but I never went out to get it and I just stopped going.

Anyone who was on lexapro ever feel any different?
>>
>>25809460
maybe because I have more problems than just "depression" so taking a pill doesn't cure me and I'm still angry and hateful.

Maybe I'm just piece of shit.

took prozac for 3 days & felt the worst anxiety of my life. felt like i was being lead to the gallows or something. it wasn't too bad the first day, but it got significantly worse with each day before i completely stopped after a freak out on the 3rd. later learned it was sertonin syndrome.

Was on various antidepressants for many years when I was a kid. They probably are what fucked me up permanently. Who in the right mind prescribes shit like that to a kid?
>>
>>25809461
got a friend whos on it, he says he started feeling better a few months in, maybe you just need something stronger?

>>25809272
i was put on a whole bunch of shit and none of it worked so i just stopped taking them bc my psychiatrist is a stupid fucking whore who wants to ruin my life and take all my money. dont trust these people, stop taking them meds bc they are poison. they dont want to help you
>>
>>25809461
Lexapro was more of a burden than anything. Same goes for all other anti-depressants I tried. All they did was kill my sex drive which was one of the few things I was able to enjoy back then.

Bud you made the right choice with effexor, its new and it was the first thing suggested to me by a specialist and I went on it reminding myself not to expect a magic pill, but it worked better than anticipated. I feel amazing every day and social fear had melted away completely, its scary knowing I would lose my current girlfriend if I stopped taking it. Effexor gas become my other half, I'm described as an amazing public speaker while in college and I've made friends with the type of people to offer everything to you.

I hope it works for you like it does for me anon!

>>25809636
how long did it take to have such an effect on you? it sounds like just the thing i need
>>
>>25809680
3 months anon ^_^, thats when my doctor said it would work and that's when I started feeling the 'subtle effects'
that was a rough break up! I was so depressed LOL, thank god for antidepressanrs xd

>Pros About Andidepressants
-Doctors make decent dosh off of you
-The doctor gets to take a sweet vacation using the insurance shekels

>Cons
>You have to go see a doc every month or two so they can "checkup" on you
>Can be expensive depending on your insurance.
>Side effects can be a bitch
>They might not even work

My experience with a GP, and a psych has kind of jaded me towards the medical community. They're people like you and me. They just want to make money. A doctor doesn't give a fuck about you, they have a 100k-200k debt they have to worry about paying down.

A medical professional also won't really know why your depressed.

Depression ultimately comes down to you making the right choices to "become better".

The Doc can't make you feel motivated, he can't make you feel happy.

He can take your money though :^]

hm, ive been given a three week test run, if it hasnt started before that i think theyll put me on something else. what dosage were you on? im going up to 150mg next weekend
>>
>>25809793
you can't be serious

did I not make it obvious enough with the emojis?

maybe you should take them, the placebo effect might be exactly what you're looking for
>>
>>25809751
That's not me

>>25809793
I'm on 150mg as well. Don't expect your dick to function as well anymore. I have a girlfriend hit sex is boring to me, and she is a living embodiment of sunshine and now so I'm missing out.

It started working in just a week for me. But it was rough since I was quitting cigerrettes at the same time.
>>
>>25809506
ive been taking lexapro for the last 3 days and i can relate to this. i'm gonna give it a bit more time though
>>
>>25809765
This to be qute honest with you family

on prozac right now and it does nothing.
>>

>>25809834
Your autism is telling me you've had a shitty time with actual placebos. Maybe you should lay down and take 6 Aleve to put you to sleep forever you fucking sperging faggot
>>
>>25809354
Meaning you have to actively aid the placebo effect? If I'm spending hundreds on something barely more effective than a sugar pill, I at least want it to convince me on its own.
>>
>>25809844
well celexa alrady did a job on my dick, so im prepared for that, glad to hear it kicks in so fast.
it sounds like youre doing well, im happy for you anon and hope its the thing i need
>>
>>25809859
Literally the meme pill to end it all. You Obviously didn't convince your doctor shit, what did you describe your issues as? Minor social anxiety?

Literally just research what you want and request it

>>25809765
You don't need to talk to a doctor whatsoever, for the first year yes so he can record your progress, but after a year of success than you don't need to go in except for a prescription renewal.
>>
>>25809847
serotonin syndrome is no joke m8, i recommend at least calling a doc asap when ya can. if the anxiety/antsiness just keeps getting worse, i recommend stopping till you talk to a doc. other shit that can happen (& happened to me) was feeling confused/heavily brain fogged and my heartbeat got weird when the anxiety flared up.

God speed Bro

I was on various things, mainly prozac for something like two years
Was fine at first, didn't feel much better but definitely didn't feel worse, like it had compressed my emotional range into a mellow neutral
I found it slightly easier to gather motivation to do things
My sex drive died completely

Towards the end things changed, idk what happened
I started getting what I can only describe as anger minus the anger, like I had the desire to break things and hurt people but I didn't feel rage
I quit my job, went full hikikomori, locked myself away for a couple months
Eventually I realized something was wrong, went cold turkey on the meds and haven't touched them since

Brain chemistry is weird shit.
>>
do i HAVE to get therapy first before i can get anti depressants or can i just go to the doctor and get my prescription right away?

i haven't gotten any sort of treatment yet (nobody in my family even knows) because i really do not fucking want to deal with therapy.
>>
It's all kike poison designed to give you shit side effects while stealing your money. Stay away.
>>
>>25809272
It's shit

been on b6 p5p and zinc for 2 years, feel way better
>>
>>25809913
hmm i am normally prone to anxiety but these last 3 days have been noticeably worse. i've only been taking half a tablet of 10mg though... so 5mg every morning couldnt have that big of an effect, could it?
>>
On 100mg of Sertraline daily, has been a huge help in making me more motivated and sociable, i have my appetite back and sleep better too. No side effects or loss of sex drive (still the same just last a lot longer). I don't wake up nauseous feeling like I'm being crushed every day now, just makes me sad i didn't do it sooner. I wasted a lot of years and opportunities to anxiety and depression, i still have my days but i don't find myself cold and bedridden anymore.

UK NHS so i only pay an hour's work a month to almost function like a human being the rest of the time.

>>25809272
I took this tricyclic antidepressant once, with a friend to get high. Sedating and euphoric, it paired nicely with weed and gave a general glow of well being to the day.

I'm on prozac and seroquel at the moment.

I'm not even sure that they're doing anything, just like the others I've been on. I don't know if it's the drugs or becoming older (21) but I've been fearless lately. Not afraid of spiders, snakes, lightning, car crashes. I don't like what that's doing to my suicidal thoughts though, "If I get bitten by a snake I'll only have to endure the pain for a couple hours and it'll be over, I've endured taco shits for longer and they're probably more painful" "I wonder if I'd bleed out before the adrenaline ran out if I just cut my hands off with the table saw, the momentum of swinging them at the blade would probably ensure I go through with it"
>>
>Consider going on anti-depressants because I can't deal with this shit anymore.
>Immediately decide never to take them in my life because there's a very real risk it could negatively impact my penis.
I'd rather be suicidal and emotionally numb than not be able to masturbate. My penis is the only good thing I have, I'm not putting that on the line.

>>25812310
i was the same, no sex drive now, idk if worth yet
