    I've Taken:

    Prozac: killed off much of my sex drive, messed with my sleep, and the worst of it: major suicidality when I first began taking it. (I was in my teens so the effect was not unheard of). Take with caution and watch your reactions carefully. Prednisone: This medication deserves...

    Antidepressant Side Effects Cause Depression
