Discussions that mention prozac

Depression board

I stopped taking my prozac a few weeks ago. I sort of stopped suddenly which you're not supposed to do, but I feel fine now. I still get depressed but there is not a huge difference from when I was on the meds. I have decided that being depressed is part of my personality - I am a deep thinker and I am bound to be depressed sometimes. On the positive side, I can cry now, which is a good release sometimes, I can have ORGASMS again, which is also a good release :jester: and I am not so numb. I highly recommend not taking medication if your depression isn't debilitating, you learn a lot about yourself and learn how to feel again. I'm sure many disagree with me, but I'm speaking from my personal experience. Take care!
