  • Yep. I started on anti depressants about 6 months after our DD passed away. If I try to go off of them, I go into a severe depression. Laely, I've been a nervous wreck over everything, it's not a pretty sight. My doctor started me on an anti anxiety med. I only take it when I really need it. I can't be a good or effective mother if I'm flipping out over little, silly things. The meds don't knock me out, just calm me enough so I can deal with things.

  • I tried anti-depressants for a while, but found if I forgot to take them in the morning I would have a migraine by 10:30 and have to go to bed. Not really good for a mom with ADD. Now I take a valium when I'm feeling overly anxious/stressed. That has worked better for me. DH has been on Zoloft for years with much success.
