  • Yes, I used Lexapro for a year during a wild rough patch. It so got me thru it, and helped me in my relationships with my kids. I wasn't all moody all the time so I was a better parent. I came off it and went on with life. so overall a good experience.

  • I take Zoloft, it helps normally but lately not so much. I lost a very close friend to stupidity back in October. I called him dad and I am having a really hard time dealing.

  • I refuse to take the meds the doctors want to prescribe for me. I can't see me taking them on a consistent basis so why should I bother? I did find that using the over the counter supplement 5-htp helps me tremendously. My friend told me he uses it as well and swears by it. I'm not a doctor and cannot prescribe anything but I can vouch that this stuff works for me.

  • I was having trouble sleeping and they put me on Remeron...I slept! But was hung over in the morning and had a hard time getting my motor running. It will also make you gain weight if you are not careful. It makes you have a sweet tooth in the evening about the size of Nebraska!
