      Good points. Also, seriously, quit being a pussy and go do Exposure and Ritual Prevention. Or, if you like weed, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. They’re fucking thoughts. I’m thinking about fucking your wife right now. Probably isn’t going to happen tonight. I might, I’m going to try to bag her, but it’s a thought. Good luck, pussy.

    I tried zoloft 200mg for social anxiety.
    I only felt very a slight difference so I quit after about 6 months.

      I took zoloft for about 3 years, starting when I was 14-15. Failing grades, skipped school, the usual stuff really. I had been a latchkey kid since I was 8 and had my shit pretty well together before puberty. I think the shebitch shrink also thought I cut myself since my forearms were always roughed up from playing with our psychotic cat.
      Eventually I changed shrinks, and my new doc thought that it was kinda fucked up I got medicated in the first place so he set up a plan to wean me off, reducing the dosage and putting me on topamax/topiramate to help with weight loss/binge eating. Long story short the change in medication triggered a manic episode and I did some pretty stupid shit that almost landed me in jailed.

        Always look for a therapist that wants to use drugs as a last resort and only wants to use the minimal amount of drugs + a plan to get you off drugs. Too many doctors are like "lmao let's put you on drugs, oh you're not feeling it, let's amp up the dose! What, get off them? What do you mean, you must need more."

    I was on some that treated anxiety primarily but also helped a bit on depression. I have no clue how they affect OCD. The ones I took helped me during CBT, and I ended up quitting the meds a while after treatment. I viewed them as a crutch at the time. From what I remember, for me at least, the worst part was feeling slower mentally. It's hard to compare obviously because it's all in your head, but I think it was a feeling of being slowed. Like I couldn't think as fast or as clearly as before, a bit more blurry maybe. Not sure how that worked. Also stopped having random boners and could only get hard if I deliberately wanted to jerk. Obviously helped with the negative feelings associated with anxiety, but the thing is it also lessens the way you feel positive ones. I was on a somewhat lower dosage, and it was because of the lessening of positive feels I didn't want to go higher. I'd say go for it OP, and if you get bad side effects you just ween off them and probably get something else.

    Yes, escitalopram as well as a few others at different times.

    They did not do anything positive for me at all. Instead of feeling low/anxious or having any feeling at all they turned me into a zombie. No thoughts, no feelings, no concentration. Combined with side effects like headaches, nausea, hunger etc they are not good.

    So I attempted suicide anyway by getting hit by a train because doctors are useless. Fast forward 5 years and I'm on 500mg test per week and feeling better than I ever thought was possible

    I was on 10 mg of escitalopram daily for about 18 months - started at the start of 2015 and stopped right around September of 2016.
    I was also very afraid of taking them but my doctor convinced me that it is the least "powerful" of all prescription antidepressants so even the worst side effects are generally pretty mild.
    When I just started I got night sweats which continued for about 2-3 weeks. I would wake up in the middle of the night all drenched thinking that I peed the bed but I soon realized that it's all sweat - I'm talking head to toe sweat, as if you just ran 5k on a hot summer day.
    Another thing was my dick lost a great amount of sensitivity, it became extremely difficult to finish because there was almost no sensation in my dick. This lasted for maybe 4 years. Afterwards the sensitivity came back with a vengeance which continues to this day - it became so sensitive that even lightly touching it for 30 seconds will make me cum. Thank God for numbing gels otherwise I would not be able to have sex at all.

          On one hand there's been more progress with mental health these past years, but on the other hand it's been "popularized" too, and a lot of people either think shit like anxiety is the same as being nervous or depression is the same as being sad. They just don't fucking get it. And unless you've experienced it yourself, you never will.

        Been there, in the thick of it, I can guarantee you that the antidepressant is not the most effective or safest long term strategy. Even the research strongly suggests they are far less effective than the lifestyle adjustments mentioned in this thread. They can be useful to chemically interfere and drag you out of the pit long enough for you to do the work needed to improve and rewire your head, but that's it, unless you actually commit to more sunlight, better nutrition, less screen time, more exercise and better thought patterns you will forever be a slightly off-kilter pillhead (it's easy to tell who is). This all ignoring the fact that SSRI consumers have a twofold higher risk of dementia.

    I was on sertraline for 2 years and realized it gave me gyno and made me lazy and stupid. I tapered off, decided I would stop pursuing happiness in my life and get disciplined, stopped thinking for myself and started caring for others instead. Studied hard, exercised 6 days a week, hardly touched technology, ate healthy. Looked out the window and allowed myself to feel bored. It doesn't take long for your dopamine receptors to come back if you're not constantly chasing some impossible happiness. Stop trying to be happy, it's a modern lie. At best you can hope to be neutral on average with happy and sad moments, but humans have never been "happy" as a default state.

      My friend took them for a year and said it made him feel empty inside so I'd suggest to try them but don't be afraid to stop taking them if they don't help long term.
      Remember tho that the real effects come after 4 weeks so unless it makes you go crazy just wait a month or two.

    I also took escitalopram for a few months, for depression. It got me out of a genuinely suicidal depressive spiral, which I'm grateful for, but the side effects have me real worried. I've been going through more and more loss of libido and sexual function, and the emotional numbness is real. I like myself as a person now and want to live and better myself, so I've stopped taking the pills as of about 2 weeks ago now. The side effects are still very much lingering.

    Take saint johns wort instead, it has the literal same mechanical funciton than an SSRI. They did a study and compared it with setraline and it was as effective if not even more.

    I took 1800mg daily for months now and feel much much better. I never took an ssri but saint johns wort helped tremendously. I still have the deep sadness and anxiety, but the really really deep points of uncontrollable crying and feelings of dread are gone.

    Also try rhodiola rosea, it's an adaptogen like ashwagandha. On top of that i would advise on taking 1200-1800mg of NAC a day if you struggle with Dopamine ( Nicotine, Alcohol addiction etc)

    But most of all you need to change your life or it will just come back over and over again. Good luck friend.

    I'm on venlaflaxine (225mg) and it's helped lessen the anhedonia and such, and the only negative side effects are lowered libido (which effectively means I only jack off 2-3 times a week instead of daily).

    my parents should have put me on anti-depressants 15 years ago when i was 15 and started becoming miserable. it might have been able to fix my life

    now im 30 and the most incomprehensibly miserable i have ever been in my entire life. i have thought about suicide pretty much all day this entire year so far. i have never felt more helpless, hopeless, and despondent than i do now. i get out of bed but that's basically all i do. i barely speak to anyone, i barely muster any facial expression besides a frown and scowl because even attempting to smile is too much effort and i have nothing to smile or talk to anyone about.

    i just dont even see a point of trying antidepressants at this point. ive already wasted three decades of life. there's no way to fix this.

    you were prescribed medication to bring you up to a functioning level. by not taking it you are not functioning at 100%, likely 50% and lower. you get nothing done, you have never finished anything to completion, you waste your time constantly
    by taking the prescribed drug you will be brought up to baseline and slowly work your synapses back into working order and your psych will slowly lower the dose and take you off over time so you will be left working at baseline naturally instead of literally being useless 24/7
    but don't take it so you can literally be in the same spot as you were the last time and the time before that, i want this because i enjoy the suffering of others, feed me

    What kind of OCD? I've had extreme OCD for years and have thought of kms and I haven't seemed to improve at all but I learned about some new treatment method today that I think might finally make sense of and solve my OCD.

    Before doing ERP, look up David Burns' Hidden Emotion Technique. If you have OCD it's very likely that you are a nice person who is unconsciously sweeping a problem under the rug because you think you're not supposed to have the negative feelings you have. Maybe you hate your job but feel forced to stick with it, maybe you're mad at a loved one, maybe you're worried about something you think you shouldn't be worried about. If you bring the problem to conscious awareness and solve the problem or express your feelings the obsessions stop.

    I think it would also explain why ERP is only partially successful - it operates under the premise that your thoughts are bad and occur for no reason at all and trying to make them go away with ERP essentially amounts to stabbing a body of water to fix a leak. Freud mightve been cooked up but his theories about repressed emotions weren't just pulled out of his ass.

      All drugs do this including caffeine.
      That's why people keep drinking coffee or tea for life. They've tried stopping but no matter how long they go without their coffee, they can never quite get back to how they used to feel before they first started drinking. So they go back to drinking or they stay abstinent and put up with feeling 90% of their former self before they became an addict.

    I took that one, can't remember the side effects but I'm guessing the standard: exhaustion, diarrhea, dizziness and headaches.
    Been trying all kinds of different SSRIs at different dosages over 3 years or so. It can take weeks or even MONTHS for the full effect to kick in and it all depends on your situation if you feel the side effects are worth it. Are you desperate from relief and about to have a nice day? Probably worth it. You mention OCD, is it bad enough that you can't live a somwhat normal life? Can you handle sweating, restlesness, dry mouth, headache, stomach problems, being so tired you feel like a zombie, vision problems, concentration problems etc? Also Sertraline killed 90% of my sex drive, might not happen to you but if he prescribes next it just keep that in mind.

      Also if diet and exercise "fixed your anxiety", you never had an anxiety disorder you were just a shy little gay.
      Normalfags think clinical depression is the same being sad because your moron team lost the Super Bowl and clinical anxiety is the same as being nervous for a job interview.
      I dont know what it about other people being fucked in the head that makes normalfags so defensive and aggressive when you tell them you cant just "get over" mental illness.
      Normalfags also fly into a rage when their advice to "just exercise, bro" doesnt work.
      Then they double down and say you're just not exercising hard enough, you're just not dieting hard enough, you're just not trying hard enough to not be a crazy.

        No, normal fags who think depression and sadness are the same because psych meds are handed out like candy on Halloween. 10% of people in the US are on SSRIs. Think of all the people that have never even gone to a psychiatrist. If those quacks could examine every person the number would probably jump to at least 30%. The only fucking way you can justify the number of people on meds being as high as it is is by taking the Ted approach to thoughts on the issue

          37 million in US alone only of the ones who actually went to a psych. Odds are 19:1 that their "depression" is a meme from a hole they've dug themselves into or from regular tragedies in life, like having lost a loved one recently, which isn't the same as having depression. Also TRT isn't suggested enough for men who think they're depressed because low T causes many of the same symptoms: low energy, sadness, no focus or motivation, low libido
