Happy antidepressant stories? I am diagnosed with panic attack disorder and generalized anxiety disorder. I take Cipralex aka Lexapro(It's SSRI) every morning, 3 bromasepams(benzo type) daily and Trazodone before sleep. I've been on this for like 2 months and I'm feeling really great. I have literally anxiety and I'm feeling much more extroverted then I used to. They told me therapy lasts 3-6 months but I keep coming across stories where people use them for far longer period of time and apparently it made everyone brain dead zombie and they can't get their life back.
>>592093134 meh,you'll be ok. I also take an SSRI but no benzos. Same diagnosis. Taking them for 8 months now, scheduled to go off them soon, should have beenin december, couldn't make it to the appointment.
This is essentially the mantra of people who have never been to the point where they required medication to function.
I've also been on benzodiazepines for nine years, without upping the dose and successfully titrating off them for two years with minimal side effects. They have their risks, but they are greatly hyperbolized.
OP speaking I've been using the same amount of benzos(1,5mg) for almost 2 months, and I don't have a need to change it. I don't even feel like I'm on benzos anymore. Sometimes I skip like 1 or 2 pills daily and I don't feel different. As far as weed goes, it makes me anxious, so I haven't smoked since I went on therapy. I don't think I need it at this point of life. I take trazodone 2/3 of a pill before sleep, it usually knocks me out. I've been told to take them before sleep because I used to wake up at night sweaty like every night. Doc told me it was because of Panic Attack Disorder thing.
>>592093134 I took trazadone for a little why as a sleep aid. I felt amazing for a while (I may be mildly depressed, but not diagnosed) but after a while I would see a tall building and just picture jumping off for no reason, it freaked me out so I stopped taking it.

You assume too much. I was majorly depressed and on SSRIs Benzos Antipsychotics, lithium, trazodone, TCAs, and some other shit that melts on your toungue. NONE of it worked. Some friends took me to a concert. Ate some shrooms. Had epiphany. Changed lifestyle. Diet, excercise, volunteering, and pussy takes care of 99%. When it isn't enough, I smoke some weed. Never smoke 7 days a week. Always take at least one day off to recharge neurotransmitters. Finally happy. Don't fall into psychopharmalogical hell anons. It makes things worse. Even if it appears to work, functional dependency sets in. You will go through hell getting off of them. I am 50 years old and have experienced it all. I know what I am talking about.
