I Am Back On Medication

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 17 People

    So I just started taking a new medication,

    I don't have much hope for it. Hoping it doesn't make me suicidal. Anybody else ever taken Amoxapine? Feedback would be great.

    Antidepressants

    I think I managed about a month of being medication free but decided to start back on medication because I was feeling very suicidal. I wonder if i'll ever be able to live without chemical help.
