I proudly take anti depressants. I am on Elavil and Zoloft and I finally feel like I can make a coherent statement and keep a thought in my head. My fog is lifting somewhat.

I do not take antidepressants, but I would not be opposed to taking them if I became depressed again. When I went through a severe case of depression about 20 years ago, antidepressants were frowned upon. I believe that if they hadn't been I could have gotten out of my depressed state more quickly. As it was, I was in a depressed state for approximately 2 years with the middle part of those two years being the absolute lowest point of my life.

Why do you ask? I'm just curious.

I didn't vote because there wasn't an option for "Used to take them, but don't anymore"...I too Zoloft for a year, and it was the best thing I ever did.
