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????
Sorry to hear of your troubles indygirl and I'll give them some thought. If I come up with any ideas I'll let you know. BTW, it's not clear (at least to me) if you are expecting or at the stage of trying for a baby.. so what's the situation? I can see that it might make a difference to know, for the sake of the best advice and support that we can offer.
Got to go. Attempted bankroll robbery in Manchester. Beating up criminals before dropping them off at the nearest police station always makes me feel better but I can see that that's not a solution that would work well for everybody!
