    Defiantly Makes Things Easier

    I was finally put on medication for my mood in June I think it was. It has really made a difference. I mean, I won't lie and say as is perfect now and I never have my suicidal moments... but at least it's not every two weeks anymore. The time scales between the fluctuation is...

    But Not For What Some May Think

    I do take plenty of meds. Many here have posted that I have mental issues, and that is not the case. I take meds for my two bloodclotting disorders (See my story, "Homocystinuria/Fcator five Liden".), and depression that was caused by my losing a child (See my story...

    Horrible Withdrawals

      I ran out of my antidepressant but it was not working that well anyway. So instead of prescribing the antidepressant again so I could wean out of it, and then a new medication, my psychiatrist said it was "out of my system" and just prescribed the new...

    I have 2 reasons to take the med I'm on.

    For asthma I have my inhaler and Advair which makes it seem like I never had asthma. And I had horrible depression and anxiety streaks and Zoloft has decimated that. Haven't had a problem since I started it back in March.

    I never take it on time

    and sometimes I just forget. So either that is causing my depression or I'm just no good with this course. Again. I don't know. I hate work and I hate school. Doomed to be a deadbeat? Might I end myself now.

    and should be on something else but I'm trying to handle this myself. I pick at my acne and hair that has pimples near it. Due to this I have scars on my face and currently have two different defects in my eyebrows from recent breakouts.

    for a while now due to depression and anxiety. I am honestly unsure if it has helped. And after two days of forgetting to use it, I feel virtually the same. Anyone have experiences with Prozac?
