Staying off antidepressants
Has anyone gone off and stayed off their antidepressants? I was on Prozac for 6 years, after the first 3 years I found out I was Hypothyroid and that was most likely the cause of my depression all along. I was unable to get off and stay off Prozac for very long, always went back on. This time it has been 2 months since I have weaned off of it. The past few weeks have been bad- very irritable and that's a bad thing cause I work in a Day care with little kids alllll day. I want so bad to not go back on antidepressants and just work toward getting my thyroid meds level. I hate the numbness I feel while on Prozac, but also hate the irritability I feel when not on it. Does anyone Know if the irritability is still a symptom of withdrawl since it's just been two months?
