What anti-depressants helped/didn't help you?

I know that everyone is different but i am trying to get an idea of what anti-depressants work/ don't work. I am going to have to change my current medication, and i know that there are a lot of them out there, so i thought i would ask ou ladies your opinion. Thanks

  • ugh Celexa and Prozac did not work and they did not make me feel more like myself. I'd rather be depressed than have the side effects. Well, I guess they 'worked' but they made me act all erratic and I felt faint a lot and freaked out so much I had to get up in the middle of class to leave...........I talked to complete strangers. I guess that's what 'more like myself' is supposed to feel like? I don't think so. I was worse about inhibitions than when I was drunk with fraternity boys for crap's sake!

    I honestly think meditation, exercise, and a good diet will help you much more than some pill that messes with your brain's chemistry. The side effects of those pills are really scary too.

  • Zoloft made me feel like a zombie. I had no emotional response to anything (and I'm a very emotional person). I'm on wellbutrin and it works well. I had the dizziness/spinning feeling for the two weeks, especially at night. But at week 4 now, I am feeling much better.
