SSRI's - How Effective?
    #4403359 - 07/14/05 01:49 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I hear alot of people who are prescribed SSRIs for one reason or another, mainly to treat depression. Although there have been much research into these kinds of treatments, I hear some adverse effects such as suicidal thoughts/actions (related to xanax) and people just becomeing more depressed than when they started the treatment. I am no expert on the subject nor do I have much personal experience with these treatments, so id like to hear your experiences with SSRIs and how they helped you.

Ecstacy got me standing next to you
Getting sentimental as fuck spillin' guts to you
We just met
But I think I'm in love with you
But you're on it too
So you tell me you love me too
Wake up in the morning like "yo, what the fuck we do?"

In my experince the 3 I tried didn't help me at all.....They didn't make my depression worse or better.

They made mine much more horrible to where the point of contemplating suicide didn't phase me at all. It was just an option that I would likely have tried had there not been some sort of freak intervention. I got off ssri's and realized how crazy I was. I realize how bullshit depression is. It's all in your head. Things are only better now because I made them better, easily.

In a warped way, the ssri's helped me come to that realization. They also made me one step closer to deaths cold grip. I was lucky I didn't do anything crazy... thinking back on my whole, depressed life up to that point I can't help but have a little bit of regret. ssri's are an option, just remember that. They're not the only option. Try others before you turn to this drug. It has the potential to turn you into a zombie. I was a zombie and to this day I don't know how I snapped out of it... I guess I was just really, really lucky.

I've been on Zoloft for a while, and it really helps with my depression. It works for some, but sometimes it doesn't. It's worth a shot if you're battling depression......

I've never been on a prescription SSRI but I was taking an herb that is known to be an SSRI. My sex drive completely disappeared after a month of use so I began doing research into SSRI's and libido. It seems that it is quite common for SSRI's to kill your sex drive and unfortunately these symptoms may persist long after you stop using the medication.

I spit reality, instead of what you usually learn
and I refuse to be concerned with condescending advice
cause I'm the only motherfucker that can change my life

Beating off on ssri's or having sex on ssri's is like a cat trying to bury shit on a marble floor. It just aint gonna happen and its pathetic.
