      Brain zaps?

        Don't worry, if you ever get off the meds you'll get to learn what they are. It's a kind of painful feeling where you feel that your brain is turned off and turned back on again accompanied by what feels like electricity going through your brain.

        If anyone here is thinking about getting psyche meds is reading this, make sure you try everything else that's humanly possible to help yourself before getting on the medication. Oftentimes the medications will cause as many problems as they solve. Mental health still is very much a developing field. Not only do they not fully understand how certain mental conditions come about, they also don't understand fully why or how medications treat disorders.

        Unless your depression is so bad that you're getting constant panic attacks with nausea while vomiting and you're thinking of killing yourself to stop the pain, it's probably not bad enough that you need medication.

          Oh man fuck brain zaps. I got pretty bad withdrawals after one SSRI. I would be getting a zap every other minute or so and randomly my brain would "reset" for a moment and sometimes my legs would just shut off and I'd catch myself before I hit the ground. Migraines every day, irritability, no temper, dizziness, nausea, shakes. Fucking hated that shit.

          absolutely agree. I was put on meds almost ten years ago and quit after a few months cuz they weren't doing anything.
          Since then I've just been winging it. Sometimes it gets really bad where I pretend to be sick from work and do nothing all day, don't eat or become suicidal. But it's still better than being put on happy pills. Really people have been living with depression for millenia, why can't we do it now?

          lol I got this during my withdrawal. The absurd part was I was only taking half a dosage. I had a choice between upping my dosage, changing my prescription, or quitting. I wasn't getting any positive side effects and on the flipside I was getting seriously fat so I just stopped altogether. Brain zaps for like 6 fucking months after what must've been only about 2 months of half a dosage. What a sick joke.

      The reason they increase the risk of suicide is that they can affect motivation prior to improving outlook.

      Meaning you're suicidally depressed but sit around in a dark room all day. A few weeks in you are now motivated... And still suicidally depressed.

      Really only applies in the extreme cases.

    Retards who say anti depressants make them numb, don’t need antidepressants or are prescribed them at a too high of a dose. Antidepressants affect the brain so they will make the symptoms of depression more manageable. If they make you numb you are stupid and not really depressed. Jk it could be the difference in weather you need an SSRI SNRI or NDRI. Talk to your doctors and stop being stupid

          Show him the research on the early Sandoz trials. The reason psychedelics weren't used is that they offer a permanent cure. That's bad for business, so they killed it and demonized psychedelics as causing schizophrenia or whatever other nonsense. Btw there's is also Esketamine, maybe he could switch to that

          Mood Improvement
          Serotonin impacts our mood, but mood also affects serotonin production. Studies using
          brain imaging (PET), showed that brains of people who are happy produce more serotonin
          than brains of people who are sad.

    I suffered from on and off panic attacks for years, then a period of intense nearly non stop panic due to work stress and a panic attack while high. That's the last time I smoked.

    Ten years of Lexapro and... Six figure income, excellent enjoyable job, great wife, went from fat to fit, newborn son and second coming soon. The fucking works. The shit we strive for.

    I still hear whispers of panic here and there, but the volume is down and it never exceeds a manageable level.

    Could I get off it? Maybe? I did decrease the dose recently with zero side effects. But it certainly isn't hurting.

    I was diagnose with depression during covid because of lockdowns and I started with prozac. Didn't like it and told my therapist I was going to get off it and they were like "are you sure? there may be side effects!" as if the medication itself doesn't have side effects. If depression is a chemical imbalance in the brain then I can balance it by going to the gym and giving my brain natural happy chemicals from working out and getting some sunlight and shit. Stop taking SSRIs you fucking retards, you probably don't need them.

    i used ssris a bit in my teens.
    i got bullied a lot for being a weirdo and it seemed like something i just had to put up with, not something i could fix if i changed behaviours.
    i ended up kind of hollowed out and miserable and probably stayed home more days than i went because the stress gave me agonizing abdominal pain.

    the ssris did help. i became somewhat more functional and they made room to feel positive things sometimes.
    i cycled through a bunch and they seemed to be decreasingly effective rather than more.
    eventually it didn't seem worth it to get the re-fill so i weaned myself off of them.

    i don't think they are NECESSARY in that the stuff you need to do to get out of that is not take the drug.
    but taking the drug might be the only feasible way you get yourself into a position where you can fix your life.

Im having a tough time again, I get really anxious at night and have moments where I feel really unstable. Aspirin seems to help but I have no idea how to help myself. I workout, eat right, drink water, and so on. I might try a therapist/psychiatrist again.
