    I might be going on them very soon and wanted to know if they actually do anything or not. What are the side effects?

    There are many anti-depressants that act in different ways. I think it would help is you'd specify which one.

    That's like asking whether anti-biotics do anything or not.

    i does. they work for me. keep me from saying fuck it all and becoming the next unibomber, except without the bombs. i used to like people and be very social, (Being able to say "Used to" like that is one of the depression criteria.) but having to deal with all the bs and defective assholes while caring for my disabled parents for 18 years taught me that people are to be shunned and avoided. Wellbutrin helps with that, otherwise i would sleep all the time.

    you might have to try a couple different ones to see which one works best for you.

    Everyone reacts differently, and every drug reacts differently. If you're really in a depressed state, you might need to try several drugs to find what works for you. Don't go by what someone else's experience is like, because it just will not be the same for you, unless maybe it's a close relative.... I have no choice in the matter; if I don't have my Zoloft after a few days I go into a deep dark hole and can't function at all....

    not all of them. Wellbutrin makes you horny and aggy. Its usually prescribed along with a small dose of klonopin so you don't get into fights with people before you get accustomed to the slight speed side effect.

    I've been on them twice for about a year each and they did the job I needed them to do. it was several years apart and two very low times in my life. two different ones, as people have mentioned effectiveness can vary, as can the state of the human taking them.

    I had similar results with other meds, none even lasted more than a week or two. I've been on Zoloft about 15 years, and the doc added Zyprexa in December, as well as Remeron, but I'm off the Remeron now....
