Anti-depressants/Anxiety Meds.....

Have you ever taken any of these? What kinds and did they help? Side effects that happened to you? etc..
Myself...In the past I have been on Zoloft...did nothing for me but make my heart race.Lexapro...made absolutley no diff...Cymbalta...I can say that helped...but man did that stuff make me jittery in the begginning and had weird withdrawls when I stopped taking it for pregnancy. Now I'm on nothing...and I know it's bout time to start again because my anxiety is getting pretty bad again.Just curious as to what other peoples experiences with these types of meds have been?

  • I take Celexa when I am not pregnant... Been on it off and on for almost 4 years and I love it.. No side effects for me, and it really does balance me out...

  • Taking these meds without therapy is like taking painkillers for a broken leg without having a cast

  • I know that Prozac works for me. I haven't noticed an weird side effects or anything. It is widely perscribed because it works well, AND I can get it as one of Walmarts $4 scripts.
