I recently received a flouxetine prescription, and I really want to know about other people' experiences about using it in the long term.
Does anyone of you have taken this medicine? How did your body reacted to it? Did you feel it improved your health?
most people i know who are on those anti-depressants go on and off of em, you can tell by the comparative levels of vitriol/robotic numbness in their voices.
i'm a big fan of rhodiola rosea, as far as I understand it's all basically the same serotonin boost happening, through interactions that are different n so are the consequences, but rhodiola rosea's really pretty innocuous, same with 5htp, melatonin, all works on yer serotonin levels.
rhodiola rosea is a nice natural supplement you can stop whenever without screwing up the chemical balances in your body as much as prescription ssris do.
I'm actually not taking anything, and my depression isn't coming back. It's also a process of healing, not only a chemical one.
Some natural medicines for depression come from Saint John's worth, which isn't exactly innocuos, and has many interactions with other medicines.
I would sound strange, but praying and improving my relationship with God is working. I don't say left your doctor nor your therapy, but it's working for me.
