    My psychologist informed me today that I have medium-level depression (after going through a bunch of tests) and she brought up the idea of me maybe trying antidepressants while continuing on with regular therapy.

    I've tried to research different possible candidate drugs, but I seriously, overwhelmingly what I find are just negative reviews from users, who say things like the drug has turned them into a zombie, it has no effect, etc.

    So if anyone here has actually tried it, can you say something about the level of depression you were suffering from, and how the drugs affected you?

    Steer clear of Effexor. Search for the thread on it.

    Have you actually tried getting off the fucking internet? Like going outside interacting with human beings? I'm not joking

    Yes, I try, but I have literally no motivation or drive to do anything. I have very few feelings these days, even though I know it's a vicious circle. I also suffer from social anxiety, which in the past hindered a lot of social development.
    I badtripped on weed one time so hard it almost made me lose my mind. Haven't touched it since (was previously a daily smoker of almost 2 years)

    Here's an antidepressant; life is what it is, these god damned millennials need to get a grip and realize that no amount pills are going to make life easier.

    If in fact your depression is mild there's a very good chance that just going outside for a hike once every few days to get you away from the internet would solve some of your problems

    Never. But I know a lot of ppl who take them. Blows my mind. Not judging. Just surprised at the numbers. I have one friend who says they changed her life for the better and another who's had nothing but bad side effects and issues (but continues to take them). My brother-in-law has been on them for like 15 yrs and my sister-in-law has said she'd divorce him if he stopped. But she's a bitch on wheels. :dontknow:
