My doctor suggested I have a year on Prozac and doubled the dose after six months. I did feel it helped as I was feeling none of the usual symptoms of depression and anxiety that usually lurk within me.
But I stopped the medication and the feelings are all creeping back and taking over again so I should see my doctor again. I feel in a way that it is a weakness to ask for medication when I should be able to 'snap out of it' instead, even though I know this is an impossibility.
My doctor told me that just as diabetes need insulin, depressives need antidepressants which makes me feel a little better about taking Prozac.
I was reading the posts about natural supplements, and B1,Magnesium and Zinc are good but don't go far enough to combat depression or anxiety in my case.
