I have a question. I struggle to remember, quite frequently, to take my anti-depressants and I don’t know how much of a difference it makes. I don’t feel like my moods change when I do. I don’t feel less able to cope when I don’t. I’m also tired of going to the doctors and saying I feel sad and tired and they just up my dosage. I do feel more tired and quite thirsty and sick when that happens. But I feel tired a lot of the time anyway.
So, what does everyone make of anti-depressants? I’ve heard a lot of people who don’t get on with them but at the same time, I can remember how despairing I felt without them. I’m currently having a really tough week but I’m getting through it when maybe before I started taking them, I wouldn’t have or maybe I’m just better at coping with my emotions anyway.
So, I guess I’d like to know your experiences. Are they worth it? What puts you off taking them or why do you feel you need them?
