I haven't been around because I've been wallowing in my own misery. But I do have another question that maybe someone can help me with.
No AD's seem to work for me. I get horrible weird side effects from all before they could have a chance to work.
Plus I have allergies to some ingredients. I really don't want to try any more and want off them to see what happens because the less I take the better I am, which isn't saying much. My Pdoc said I could take a "med vacation" until I see her in a few days. I guess my question is...how could you taper off antidepressants when you've been on one or another for 9 months, but none for any length of time. The last one, Prozac, has only been 5 days. I would like to get off them all together and I know the safest way is a very slow taper, but how could I do that? I think my doc is on the fence about being on meds or not because of the history I've had and I really want to try it, but have no idea what to do. I started because of anxiety and due to a drug happy "doctor" at the time I ended up depressed. (The whole situation was awful, scared me, and messed up my brain)If I stopped, I don't know if I'd end up more depressed or not because I didn't have depression before I started taking medication. Wish I never started.
Anyone have any advice. I'm running out of steam and need it to be over. (Hope this makes sense!!)
