Well..

I'm apparently one of the few people who feel as though anti-depressants are a good thing, at least in my case. They literally saved my life. The only problem I have is that sometimes, if I forget a day or two, I get REALLY dizzy and can hardly walk. It's really bad. But I'd risk a bit of dependency. I wont risk going back to the way I was before.

I agree with you. They get a bad rap. I just got off the phone with my husband, been talking to him about my options, being on med and feeling not exactly numb but i just float in the middle of the road, no real ups or downs, or going back to life as a rollercoaster. It's a hard choice. I go back to the dr tue and see if she can help me out. this is a problem I've been dealing with these past 4-5 yrs. I've been on and off all kinds of meds since 1993.

that's awesome that they work so well for you. I used to be somewhat against them (at least for me anyways) because I had tried them and they didn't do anything good. But then I started Lexapro a couple weeks ago, and already, I (and the person who perscribed it) have noticed a major difference. I'm so glad I tried it, because for the longest time I wouldn't have even considered going back on them and so far they've really been helping.

I feel the same way. I'm seriously considering making myself an I Love Prozac t-shirt. :) When I'm on the right dosage and taking it as prescribed I feel like I'm finally capable of being the person that I want to be.

Hey, I'm really glad to hear that medication worked for you :) They really gets a bad rap sometimes, but the meds are always improving and they do save a lot of lives. They just can't necessarily *fix* people's lives for them.
