Depression board


I am worried about me feeling this way since trying anti-depressant. I haven't felt like myself in 3 months. My mood is in the gutter. I can still go to work and be with family but everyone knows it is not me. I get a low feeling kick in and then my thoughts go to never being better again. It is intense at times. It just feels like i am not in control and then it is all I can think about. I just feel like crying most of the time. I can look at my little girl and just crumble. The doctor says general anxiety , I am not uptight I am down and worried. I have sucidal thoughts and the pain is emotional pain that I feel will never end. I think it is depression, not anxiety. I know I can't quit worrying about myself, but why do i want to just cry because i can't be me. I had these attacks of emotional pain while on Zoloft for 12 days back in sept. Have not touched a anti-depressant since. Have had these same bad emotions and pain since then. Is it me worrying or did they Zoloft throw me into this hell. I need some help
Did you let your doctor know that you have suicidal thoughts? I would do that immediately. You also might want to get a second opinion because he/she does not seem overly concerned about this. There is too much help out there for you to be suffering like this. I don't know anything about zoloft, but I do know many medications can have a negative effect on your emotional state.

Let us know what the doctor says and be sure to vent here anytime. I know when I posted I somehow felt a little better just writing it all down.

It's probably not you !! Zoloft messed me up twice before I realised I just can't take ssri's if you study SSRI's(paxil prozac, zoloft, lexpro?) vs others some people don't do well on ssri and there fore feel worse :yawn: when they get on them and no better when they get off...Been there done that. Try a really good multivitamin if you are scared of anti depressants try a liquid mulit vitiamn they are absord better see health food store specialist. But if you are not scared of antidepressants, try wellbutrinxl it has some side effects but overall it gets you out of the dumps. (no sexual side effects either :) ) I can tell a difference pretty quick when I take wellbutrin, but i have it built up in my system somewhat too. 1yr. Tell your doc that you think ssri's are bad :nono: for you if you have a good doc, they will know what you are talking about. if ringing in ears bothers you as a side effect just always keep on a tv or radio and you'll forget about it. Remeber you have a purpose for being here don't think otherwise for one moment. Pray surrender your pain to God he is there to help you handle your struggles. You will be in my prayers.

Would I still be messed up from the zoloft. It has been since the first of sept. I am ready to try something. What do you guys think. I am scared the ant-depressants put me here. I don't know.
