Just started some Anti-depressants. What are you experiences? I'm on Wellbutrin
Awesome. Sure, like 99% of everyone else I've been depressed before, suicidal, all that shit. It sucks. Sometimes you just gotta tug your dick and get your shit together.
Now I'm married, just had a baby, got promoted this week. Shit works out.
Anti-depressants can work for people. But they also:
> Get used as excuses
> Have vastly different effects per person per medication
> Could make everything worse
> Teach you to rely on shit rather than strengthening your own perspective
Samsies! I need benzos or I'm gonna kill myself.
I've been on will power before this and was surviving, stable job gf etc but felt hollow, nothing felt worth doing except the daily grind and it's been that way for years now. Had to try something to see if it would work. You're right tho having to rely on something like that kinda sucks
Ive been on Wellbutrin for about 8 months now. its good for the energy, but if you suffer from anxiety then its not so great. It also destroyed my appetite and when the meds wear off for the day i get stupid hungry and eat a lot. It works well with the depression bit though. just has some side effects.
Basically, before your decent into madness, expect to grow a rinocerous horn out of your asshole and by that point you will start sweaating doritos. It is crucial that if its cool ranch doritos, you must turn counter clockwise exactly 25 degrees or else expect your eyes to pop out of your skull and your life to be over. Now with all of this said, fuck you have a good time
There are two self-driven emotions/processes that have the best chance to overcome depression.
Willpower and rage.
If you can't muster enough willpower, get mad. You can never not find enough things to get intensely mad about. Just get pissed off to the point you want to break shit. Its therapeutic to just be angry all the time. Better angry and destructive than hollowed and sad. Not to mention anger is reckless, which is typically another ironic characteristic of confidence. Women love confidence. If you were getting your dick sucked 3 times a day, do you think you'd still be depressed?
> Get girl, get happy.
Been on low xannies after I quit weed 7 years ago. Started drinking more. Past 2 years. Got a full time and hope. Quitting drinking now. Doc says wellbutrin and stop smoking cigs and drinking. Tried 1 wellbutrin before work. Worst day of the year for me. Next day? After taking it one day? Perfection. Seriously fuck every stupid pill. Smoke weed to sleep. Drink on special occasions and find good people to match you. And go..... fuckit. Just go. And not be a douchbag.
Faggot, when you have an actual chemical imbalance in your head that causes depression, willpower won't do shit. This is why people who've never experienced real depression in adulthood shouldn't have an opinion on it.
While it's technically Ad Hominem circumstantially to say that, you're right. Friend of mine said 'Why don't you just get over it?' when I got my first panic attacks. Couldn't even get it through to him
me when i tell people (as an adult) i was recently diagnosed with adhd
>wtf where did you get this vyvanse?
oh well i got tested a few months ago and got diagnosed with adult adhd-
>yeah i have adhd too lol i think everyone does
I thought that sort of shit would give you siezures if you did that if I had to guess by the warning label. Yeah, it's apparently a drug classified as 'non-abusable' which basically means the high probs isn't much
Wrong. I was diagnosed with major depression and had really bad anxiety. I would cry all the time for no reason a wouldn't wanna leave the house. Everything gave me anxiety and all I did was over analyze everything. Tried committing suicide 3 times and was always being admitted. Then turned 24 and decided I was done being a little pussy and grabbed life by the balls. Said fuck it and just didn't care anymore, started taking risks and just did what I wanted to do (not in a stupid way). I gained confidence and grew less anxious over time and now live an awsome life with no regrets. Depression and anxietyou is for weak minded, over sensitive people who just need to man the fuck up and realize that everyone feels this way.
Weird. I've been on 4 diff types and still on one. Sex is the last thing on the list.but if I go climb a hill drink water and hit herb then eat. I'm ready to pulverize pussy.
>everyone feels this way
if you actually think that, you didn't have depression
you probably shouldn't have been so much of a fuck-up that you couldn't actually follow through with suicide, like holy shit attention whore much?
Middle 30s here. Stay away from prescription drugs as much as you can. You aren't you and will never be after a while
On 300mg Wellbutrin xl. Been on for 2 years. I usually feel really awake and have more energy. I also hear a ringing in my ear occasionally. As for labito, it sometimes suppresses it. Feels bad man
Just on em cuz I need it now. Easy GaS money for corporate....
I haven't been me since the first panic attack and major depressive episodes, I'm just now starting to feel like me again so I'm suprised to hear you say that. What was your experience?
That's good news, I'm fuckin sick of always feeling like everything is above the threshhold of effort I feel like expending.
I was really against any type of meds for a long time. but ive come from an absolute shit life (fucked up parents, sister is autistic, homeless at 15) and i ended up so bad i was loosing too much weight from not eating and was cutting my self. i finally said fuck it when my doctor pleaded with me.
the thing about mental meds is that you cant just soley rely on the medication alone to fix you. you need therapy and a good support system.
right now im in EMDR therapy to help fix my PTSD. that way my brain sort of rewrites how i view things with out having to talk about the deeper shit. things are so much better now that im sure ill be off meds by the end of this year.
So you were 20. Ok. Picture being 29 at a Job you hate supporting a fiance that's leaving you while peaking at alcoholism and on a new drug that you shouldn't drink on. At work. With threats of you being fired and noone on your side because it's a fam run business and no way to contact friends or family and your exes new guy is your boss. .... no. Not kidding. This shit made me lose my head for a week or 40
When I hear about life situations like yours, I feel like I'm such a piece of shit for having a pretty good life and still am depressed. I hope shit continues to get better for you anon.
its really nothing anyone has control over if they have a shit life or not. depression is a legitimate health concern. you have a chemical imbalance in your brain. you didn't choose to be this way.
i took wellbutrin for a bit before i ended up in hospital. but i also was mixing bars and blow and sleeping pills so i guess i cant give you any advice. i was hallucinating shit was crazy.
and what makes mental illness even more difficult is that its hard to actually realize this is a biological health problem. it controls your thoughts and self esteem. and it doesnt help that 75% of the world doesnt actually believe in mental illness in the first place.
Thanks, anon, I'll take your advice
Yeah, you're right, just have that feeling like the situation's unfair that I need to shake. It's fucking weird to think it's biological when we as humans separate mind and body so much
Fuuuuuuck yeeaaaah. Don't care who where what kinda fag you are someone with no reason depression speaks up. I'd hug the fuck outta you you fuck#
Anons speaking of how drugs will effect you , what do drugs meant for curbing pedophile's do to their sex drive? Like will they not be attracted to anyrhing anymore!
Depends how many MGs you're on. Started on it & was doing okay & it helped control my depressoon but still felt a bit off so decided to increase the dose & immediately got panic attacks & got switched to something else but Wellbutrin is great outside the 1st week cause it made me surly & angry
Hang in there brother, too much in life to enjoy still
I've taken those but never close together. What. The fuck. Did you see
theres a website if you dont have the $$ for mental health services like talk therapy. if youre really feeling like absolute shit one day and need some interaction theres this website called 7cupsoftea. it has people who are trained to listen to you and give solid advice. you can go talk to anyone about literally anything and theres no judgement. they just want to give you the space to talk and be heard. its a completely free website and you dont have to offer any information if you dont feel comfortable about it. shit saved me sometimes
with medication like wellbutrin the first week or two can get weird. your depositing a new chemical make up that your body isnt used to. most doctors recommend staying on it for about two months and see how you feel afterwards
i took welbutrin for depression when i was in middle school, about 12 y/o
10mg welbutrin once daily
i saw dolphins in lake oconee and was assaulted by a rabbit, in the same day.
i had regular panic attacks and had to be withdrawn from school several times as a result of the medication. i used the medication for about a year before i couldn't tolerate the side effects anymore
SSRI antidepressants and I have never agreed though, hopefully your experiences will be different
at first it freaked me the hell out. im whats called an HSP. so im really sensitive to like sounds/smells/tastes and shit like that and this dosage really fucked me up for a few days. but after i realized that it was the meds doing this to me i calmed down a bit and things leveled out. its been about 2 1/2 months since i upped to the 300mg and im doing better
Did your depression get any better without the meds?
That's pretty fuckin intense, good to hear that got better. I got some of that 'weird' feeling, like shit was out of place
I've just started velaxefine. Meant to make you feel even worse for a few weeks before kicking in, but I'm feeling pretty good at the moment.
>helped me get over recent breakup
>helped me stick it to my shitty boss
>gives me more energy to do shit
Only downside is I barely sleep. Insomnia is a common side-effect.
this is why people who have never experienced mental illness find it hard to understand that its a thing.
if i, say, have a broken leg, people who don't have a broken leg can obviously see that i have a broken leg.
but if you have a "broken" brain, "neurotypical" people cant see and understand the symptoms. its hard enough to realize on your own that something is physically wrong, imagine how hard it is to understand its a real issue to those who dont suffer the same way
I am also physically disabled, got shit knees since i was a wee lad.
people who are perfectly healthy look at me like im making this shit up. like i could never possibly feel the same pain as say an senior person.
i believe some people who are privileged with perfectly healthy bodies cant grasp the idea of their body not being healthy (beyond like a common flu or some shit) so they cant understand that this happens with other people.
Wellbutrin is a good one. It's a slow release hormone pill or something. If you're a smoker it benefits in quitting (kills the addiction or something?). It boots metabolism and will lose some weight. You'll just feel better.
BUT you won't have much for an appetite. I recommend smoking a small bit of weed and at least eating healthy if at all. You will feel queasy and have headaches for a couple weeks until everything starts working. I found I threw up a lot so I smoked weed to help. Other than that I have no complaints with this one. I had cipralex before and it made me a zombie.
