My Mood: Stressed
Benzo's turned me into an arrogant a-hole. Then they made me more anxious because my body was always anticipating a dose and soon I was taking ridiculous amounts because of tolerance.

As for SSRI's, i'm currently taking Mirtazapine and like it's been mentioned it's dulled my emotions. I don't feel happy nor sad, it's pure apathy. Also, my anxiety is still there it's just I don't really dwell on it as much. Maybe in combination with therapy it might be more beneficial but at present i've come to the decision of stopping it.
