My ability to feel is reduced even though it's been 3 years since I stopped taking ssri. Great, you might think. But it means my ability to enjoy films, series, books, games pretty much anything is reduced. So I spend more time wasting away at 4chan because games don't engage me anymore
I also feel less when interacting with people. Generally, life has become one long string of meh and I've considered suicide, not because I'm depressed, but etc etc complicated to explain.
>>26247675 you took them for FOUR fucking days anon, jesus christ your doctor would have told you it takes a couple of weeks for them to settle in and make you feel better. You didnt even give them a chance, you just pussied out and now you are telling other people to come off them
>>26247832 I feel the same way anon, ive never been the same since I started my SNRI's about a year and a half ago. I tried coming off them but my anxiety was so bad I was throwing up from nervousness, not eating, talking, could not function, I gave it a few months but it didnt improve, I foud it so hard to breath I had to go to the GP's. Im back on them now, my anxiety is minimalised, I feel like I can deal with life a lot better than before, but I still find it hopelessly difficult. I have apathy and I care much much less about people than before, my empathy is reduced and I feel flat, but compared to the hell that came before it, feels good mane I can tell you this is 1000x better than going without them
>>26247641 Never taken those things, never will. Sounds like a new modernized way to create eunuchs. The people I talk to on them are like fucking zombies, but they keep going on about how despite the suicidal thoughts, inability to achieve erection, and other strange side effects, they're somehow better off. They also keep pushing them onto other people.
>>26248255 Oh, and they get insanely defensive and aggressive about anyone who even suggests there's something wrong with them. Antidepressants have gotta be the biggest bullshit meme I've seen. I only ever see white people using that shit. I don't think we know enough about the brain to be fucking around with it like we are.
>>26247838 >reminder they need to put on small print on the bottle that SSRIs can cause suicidal and homicidal ideaization because they are linked to suicides and spree killings so often
Antidepressants give you more energy to get shit done, including offing yourself. The suicidal thoughts were there beforehand, but on meds you now have the energy to get shit done, including killing yourself.
>>26248269 I took lexapro and had facial twitches the second day and guess what, they are one of the side effects that the meds warn you about and they admit they can effect you from the star. It is only the 'stabilizing' part of the medication that takes weeks to kick in, all the other effects can happen from the first dose.
>>26248590 Yes. Anything that releases endorphins decrease drive for sex over time. Just like that feeling after orgasm when you are disgusted and have no interest. Junkies have low sex drive for this reason but they just do it for money.
I took Citalopram for about 5 months a few years back. Here are a list of the side effects I had, I had a very bad allergic reaction. Funnily enough they helped the anxiety/depression quite a lot but they fucked my shit up when it comes to everything else.
>Terrible skin rash that appeared on random parts of the body, usually the arms and legs. The rash was often raised, sore and very itchy/prickly >Strong joint pain that would last for fucking hours, particularly in the wrists and kneas. >Hands and feet would often swell up to an extra 1/3 of their size which was very painful. >I'd wake up every morning with a sense of imprending doom and I'd have a panic attack that usually lasted for about 10 minutes. >Would literaly have to wait a week to fap or I'd just be there soft as fuck no matter what.
I stopped taking them and had most of the side effects gone within 3 months. 6 months later I was still getting the rashes and swelling on my hands and feet which were exagerated if I did any form of exercise, even just walking the dog.
It took nearly 2 years for the all the effects to completely subside. Only this last year have I stopped getting slightly swollen hands and feet when I exercise, I though I was gonna have it forever.
My advice: Don't take any form of meds for your head, just sort your shitty life out. SSRI are particularly bad, they don't just go to the brain. They will go to your heart, intestines, muscles and even your skin. If you have a sensitive body you will have all kinds of side effects.
>>26247848 Yeah. Sure call me afaghot. So what I panicked. I was having adverse side effects with the fact that I don't eat much and I have never taken anything non-over the counter. I felt like I was being changed into something I wasn't and quit.
It's not like taking SSRIs are going to get me any friends. Hell depression has always been my loyal friend, what an idiot I am to abandon him.
>>26247920 Like the other anon who replied I also took Lexapro. Whatever it is, its shit. Maybe another drug would have worked better but I'm not going to completely fuck over my brain for a chance at something working.
>been taking lexapro for 2 years >forget to get a refill >third day of no meds, start to feel like I'm being mildly electrocuted every two minutes >incredibly horny >start fapping >literally cum over 20 times in a half hour >start blacking out, fall asleep >wake up, vagina throbbing >start uncontrollably crying >call for refill
>>26249753 also: >still having panic attacks >doc suggests a slightly higher dose >ok >go literally 5 mg higher >next day insanely hungry >joints hurt like an old bitch on Lifealert >no matter how much I eat I still feel like I'm starving >vomit profusely >dropped back down to my original dose >everything fine >doc complains about me dropping my dose on my own
>On escitalopram for three months now >Sex drive is kill, but still fap weekly and enjoy it >Starting to feel awful more regularly again, contemplating suicide >Can't get stronger meds until next month because of insurance God please bless America.
