Fluvoxamine

Fluvoxamine (100mg) for depression

I have a much better experience with this Fluvoxamine then with Mirtazapine. I had nothing but bad nightmares and strange dreams. Now with the medication Fluvoxamine I don't have these problems anymore. I think very positively of it.

Venlafaxine

Venlafaxine (150mg) for depression

I have always taken 75mg but after a month of taking 225mg i went up to 300mg and since two weeks ago i began slitting my wrists, i think this is a reaction to the high dosage. My doctor says that he never heard of this but i have read about it, does that make sense?

Paroxetine

Paroxetine (20mg) for depression

When I first took paroxetine there were no problems. I stopped taking it cold turkey and started taking it again after about one year. then I noticed spots all over my body, starting on my lower legs and arms. I tried applying various salves but that didn't help so I had a biopsy. the dermatologist said it's a kind of psoriasis. So I switched to fluoxetine and I was given a course of prednisone...

Venlafaxine (150mg) for depression

It helps for the self-destructive tendencies, but stopping it brings the symptoms back.... but comparted to 75 mg Efexor (now on 75 mg venlafaxine) alprazolam, paroxetine (always used to work for me but once i'd stopped taking it and then started again I developed a toxicological response to it (a kind of psoriasis...not 100% though because it only happened after I started taking paroxetine aga...

Citalopram

Citalopram (40mg) for depression

It is worth gritting your teeth to get through the first 2 weeks because it makes your symptoms 10 times worse. This is a part of it all though and you need to persevere. After 3/4 weeks I felt no more pain and after 7/8 weeks I was starting to feel good. It takes a while though. After a year and a half I can properly enjoy my life again and I have decided to start coming off them. I'm doing th...

Bupropion (150mg) for depression

I'm a pathological gambler. Wellbutin unfortunately hasn't cured my addiction. I have noticed some changes in my gambling habits though. Before, it was the first thing I thought about when I woke up and it consumed my every waking second. Now I am able to enjoy other things and have less need to gamble. Conclusion: gambling excessively makes you depressed and the more depressed you are, the mor...

Sertraline (100mg) for depression

I've been on sertraline for four weeks now. after taking citalopram for fifteen years. I had to come down from 50mg to 20mg is fourteen days. and then I started sertraline. but it was hellish, spent the past four weeks feeling really unsettled, having panic attacks. apparently you need to stick with it but otherwise i'd stop. I started on 25mg then 50mg and now on a hundred. so you start thinki...

Mirtazapine

Mirtazapine (7,5mg) for depression

I've been taking this medicine in combination with quetiapine since the beginning of 2017. When I started taking this, I put on a lot of weight and I started getting (more) vivid dreams even though I am sleeping better. In the first weeks that I was on this medicine I really suffered from suicidal thoughts. They slowly disappeared. After that, I felt like my moods had improved dramatically. I'v...

Citalopram

Citalopram (40mg/ml) for depression

ALmost straight away started with the difficulties going to the bathroom. I had a blood test and it showed that 16 drops weren't enough so I moved on to 20 drops to even get the smallest of effects. It was so difficult to go to the bathroom that I had to go back. Back down to 14 drops then later to 10. It was still difficult to go to the bathroom. I'm definitely stopping with this now though be...

Mirtazapine

Mirtazapine (15mg) for depression

I haven't been using mirtazapine for very long, but I can tell you that my weight has sky-rocketed. Apart from that though, very few side effects up to now and I'm quite happy with how it's been working. I am sleeping better and I am generally calmer.

In The first weeks I really suffered a lot. Now I have many inflammations in the mouth and really a very dry mouth. Sometimes so bad that I can not swallow... Also I am very duf with gusts. It varies from day to day.

Paroxetine

Paroxetine (30mg) for depression

It just didn't work, at least not for me. Most antidepressants do nothing for me. I believe I have already tried 25. (AM now 41 years depressed.) After suicide attempt I have gotten Notrilen. It's all dredging. In the Netherlands, 17 million non-depressed people are around, but they refuse to function as such in favour of those who are depressed.

Paroxetine

6/5/2017 | | 38moderated by Susan
Paroxetine (10mg) for depression

Good drug for depression but I can't really recommend it. You're better off taking something natural like St John's Wort! I was once advised never to start taking paroxetine. But I was never told why. But if I had known then what I know now, I would never have started taking it. After long-term use (I've been on it now for 12 years, 30 mg) your feelings get numbed and it affects your memory. Co...
