I'm feeling better OFF antidepressants!
Has this ever happened to anyone? I was on Celexa/Lexapro for several years. I went on Effexor at the beginning of the year. After a few months it felt it wasn't working and I was up 30 pounds. So, we tried Prozac and that made me so sick. I told my PDoc I just wanted off AD's for a while just to see what I'm like off them. He told me to quit Prozac cold turkey since I had only been on them a month and was on 20mg. The first week was ok, just some dizziness. Well, the beginning of this week was horrible! Nausea, extreme lows. By 2 days ago, however, it all went away. The past few days I've felt great. I feel happier. Even the weather isn't bringing me down (which usually does). I feel more even-keeled. My problem was always purely hormonal (I don't have any kind of post tramatic stress or anything). I felt I was always snappy, at times weepy and just unable to get a hold on life. I feel like getting out more now and not sweating the small stuff. I'm hoping this is not just a honeymoon phase or anything. Has this happened to anyone else?
