They've made a vast improvement in the quality of my life and relationships, too.<br />
They should NOT be subsribed by a Primary Care Physician. Seea Psychiatrist, they know and understand treatments with and without meds.
I have very negative opinions about most Chemicals that people put in their bodies. Can you imagine how bad things must have been for our forefathers without Anti-Depressants? Most of them didn't live past the age of 40, but, many did. Back then, not many people were dying from Cancer or other modern diseases'. Studies, I have read, tend toward very serious side effects from most Medications. People look for "Crutches" to fix their emotions, when a little encouragement or discipline may have been better. Instead, we destroy our bodies to fix our minds. This is where the term, "Building a house on sand", does not stand", came from. Our Bodies must be in good shape to carry our minds. We have lived for too mang generations, pumping chemicals into our bodies and passing the damaged cells on to our offspring, making their bodies worse than ours, as they continue the trend. Soon, we shall be living in Clinics, from cradle to grave.
First off there is nothing wrong with being on anti-depressants if u are more than over half a million Americans are on them, second of all, anti-depressants are not happy pills by the way for the ones who don't know much about them, they are pills to help stablize ur brains chemicals cause sometimes there are chemical imblanaces our brian or in our body that need help from anti-depressents to adjust a medium level. U may hear all kinds of side effects about anti-depressents but who knows what's best for u and which medication that's gonna work with ur chemicals than ur normal primary physican. All medications have side effects and if they are too seouris than the F.D.A. would not let the manfactors put the medience out on the market!! Anti-depressants are not happy pills but if u have too take them; what would u want, to be depressed all the time and have ur chemicals out of wack and not be urself, or be on anti-depressents and stay on track with ur chemicals and be urself?
Pointless, although I know a few people... happiest people I know, pretty popular.. after a while, I found out they were on antidepressants. Heck, must be working!
They help me with my period. (I know that was TMI)
helps some, thought it would help more than it does.
They're like a Russian roulette-you never know if you got the right one this time.Though they're sometimes necessary.
To be used with caution,..if at all...Personally i prefer a range of other substances....Its like a balanced diet approach.
I think I probably need them but don't take any.
If the Doc says you need them,short turm only thogh.
they're fine. some are more effective than others. prozac did nothing for me but wellbutrin and lexapro worked well.
Essential to life.
I say if you need them try it. try not to worry about the side effects. they work
