Is there any anti depressants out there that do not cause side effects? I have been on zoloft, wellbutran, and lexapro. And all of these meds make me feel like i have no emotion. I dont enjoy anything. I have no personality. And I surely dont have a sex drive. Right now i'm am trying to get off of the lexapro. I stopped takeing the medicine a week ago, and I still feel like my nerves are going heywire. I feel like they are shooting through out my body. I am extreamly tired, and i wake up 4-5 times a night (on and off the meds). I just want to be better. I have mmod swings so bad. where i cry hesterically to where i just want to argue and put down my husband. its taking a toll on him. Is it possible to have your hormones wacked out and not depression? So many questions , why can I just be normal?
Wellbutrin is usualy known for being the antidepressant with the lowest number of side effects. Every antidepressant is going to have some sort of side effects it will differ from person to person on the severity. Has your doctor checked you medically for all of the other problems like thyroid? How long are you remaining on the med before you stop taking it. For your sleep problems I would be asking for a sleep aid like Trazadone or Temazapam. Your lack of sleep has to be effecting how you feel on a day to day basis.

Hi Survivor3, what kind of depression, anxiety, panic disorders and stress have you been diagnosed with and what kind of natural supplements do you take for these conditions? I'm curious to know all about natual supplements before I go on any ADs. Thanks!
I too had tried many AD's with nothing but a flatline. I know what you are talking about. What was the point in trying one more...when the effect would be the same?
Found a new meds doc who introduced me to Lamictal. A mood stabilizer. It is also used to treat bi-polar. I am not bi-polar however. The Lamictal did the trick. The depression lifted, my moods settled and yet I could laugh, cry, feel joy and disappointment.
I recommend a good med doc. I wish that I had not spent years with a general doc. The med doc knew just what I was talking about and some ideas on how to correct it.
Run..don't walk to a specialist who can diaginois you correctly and give you choices in your treatment.
