How many Mom's are on Meds?!?!?!

So I am feeling very depressed, overwhelmed, sad and have anxiety. I have an appt to see a doc on the 29th but really don't want to be prescribed meds. So how many Mom's are on meds and how do you feel?!?!?! Has it helped? I don't want to be a medicated Mom to be happy. Thanks in advance!

  • I have very bad depression, have suffered for a very long time and have never taken meds for it, but really I think I should start, it would probably help, but I'm pregnant so I'm not doing that right now, but I'm going to look into it in the future.

  • I take xanax for anxiety and I love it! I do tend to make impulsive purchases when on it, that's the only issue I have with it.

  • I understand how you feel. I have suffered from depression all my life and never took medicine. until, I had my first baby I got severe PPD and wanted nothing to do with my first born for almost four months, don't get me wrong I held her and loved her, took care of her but, I had a lot of supportive friends. Having my child made me realize that I could not fight the depression alone and needed to do what was best for both of us. I have been on medicine now for almost 7 years and love it. Cymbalta is what I take now for almost two years. It takes a while to find the one that fits you.
