I started taking meds when I was 22-23 but not on any anymore. It was meds for anxiety and depression. My issues were pretty bad.

I am still on Paxil, but it's mild anxiety (occasionally peaking toward moderate)

I'm surprised Paxil was worse than Pristiq. I didn't have too much trouble getting off Paxil, but if I forget even one Pristiq, it's horrible.

Teenage years, major depression and anxiety.

What's wrong with running away from reality if it sucks?

Was on them from age 20 - age 32 or so. Finally managed to get off them after trying for about 6 years then. Tried all of them.

i took a few of them and not one had any positive or for that matter negative effect. I gave up them all cold turkey, again with no positive or negative effect on mood which prompted my doc to say that no medication would therefore work for me - luckily she didn't have a clue what she was talking about.

No poll option fits for me. Tried paxil during a tough period. Make my knob nice and numb. That's it. No good for anything except as a knob number. Will never take it again.

Why did you go off of them? And what made it take 6 years?

@naes , phenelzine aka nardil, really good med for me that seems to make me immune from anxious or depressive thoughts and gives me the excited outlook on life I had in my younger days.

Nice man I have heard lots of good things about MAOIs. Do you experience any side effects on it?

Hmm, like what are the common side effects people complain about? If you don't remember that's cool, I'm just curious.

common ones are bloating, weight gain, constipation, insomnia, fatigue and hypotension but it seems that that these subside and disappear after a few months on it but quite a few people quit because of them when starting up. I feel really lucky as I was expecting to feel like **** for a while but I had nothing apart from daily improvement from symptoms until they had gone, and it hasn't dipped in effect in the 3 years I have been on it.
