After being on antidepressants for over a decade now, about
3 months ago I began to taper down & go off them with the support & supervision of my Psychiatrist. It was a really rough time for me & I suffered severe withdrawal symptoms. I am so happy & proud to say that with the exception of Metformin (a fertility drug) that I am "drug free" for the first time since I was 19.
However, for over the past two months now, I have become extremely depressed. I am now contemplating whether or not to return to taking at least one antidepressant or a new one all together. I would like to be on the lowest dosage & least risky antidepressant for child birth. I just don't know what to do. I also started vitamin supplement packets (I have had success with in the past) to help with energy. I am scheduled to see a new Psychiatrist (long story) next month (soonest I could get in) so I will be receiving his input, as well. In the meantime, I am trying to see my therapist weekly & trying to do things around/out of the house when I am able.
Any thoughts or suggestions????
