For those of you who take anti depressants, do you think they are helping?

When I first started I thought so...now it seems like the higher dosage and the ONE I am on may not be right for me.

Still looking into therapy.

I guess the best thing is asking for help, that was a big step.

May I ask what you take and how long you have been taking it?

im 60 and since i was 23 ive been off and on them. when i was young my problem was i would get all the side effects, so i would not take them and it was so hard to live without the help of meds, one dr. wanted me to start shock treatment i told him no.

In the beginning I seemed to sleep better.

The dosage has been changed.

Not too sure yet if it's helping.

I don't cry as much.

It's still early days and they say it takes some time to work.

I just hate feeling this way.

Clomazepam should help with the panic attacks too, right?

Thanks Heidi, it's much appreciated.

And I will.

Don't feel as "Alone" coming here.

Again, thanks!
