    50 Mg Zoloft. Big Whoop! Wanna Fight About It?

    I tried taking cipralex at first, but I don't know. It just made me kind of "jittery" I guess. I got depressed again some time afterwards and honestly thought about ending it, but part of me just said to give it another go. So, I switched to zoloft. One thing I can say is that...

    I Just Started Taking Meds For Depression

    So I'm 31. Through my teenage years, I knew I was different but didn't have the wisdom to seek professional help.  I sought self medication through alcohol and weed.  In college I did not self medicate.  I just felt like **** all the time.  Sorry for the cussing, but that is...

    possible to do, but i did. Now, it's affecting me and I can't deal with it. I can't help but feeling like Craig Gilner in It's Kind of a Funny Story.

    I Did

    I probably should again.I resist it though, because most of my sadness is situational. Whenever I am feeling depressed and I am crying, I can point to a cause.I can say *This is why I am sad* *This is what is happening in my life that I am crying about.*I took antidepressants for...

    I have a question for anyone

    who has taken depression medication; Has it affected your memory or made it difficult to concentrate while on it? I've been having some problems lately and I think that my medication may be the problem. I'd appreciate the help. :)

    Not Diagnosed

    They haven't ever successfully diagnosed me, but I've heard theories, and in the end they put me on Prozac and a couple of mood stabilizers. These work wonders. I was so much unhappier before the most recent combination of meds. I'm pretty sure there's some depression mixed in...

    to 100mg because my depression is getting worse and the suicidal thoughts and urges are happening more frequently. It's becoming harder for me to talk myself out of the suicidal urges and I knew I needed to get help for it because as much as I hate my existence, I couldn't hurt...
