I had a script and used Prozac for 2 years after I got out of the Marines.

What is your question or concerns.

My question are;
Do you feel normal?
Did you lose your sex drive?
Do you still have the tired feeling?


My Dr started me on paxil, first week 10mg then 20mg after that. I dont get a full nights rest... I wake up during the night(4 hours after I sleep) I have no sex drive... worst then when I did a sdrol cycle...

I was on Paxil CR a few years ago. No problem sleeping but I felt like laying around a lot and ended up gaining 20lbs. of fat. As far as bedroom activity it actually helped, I could last as long as I wanted sometimes too long. The main side affect I had was A scratching sound inside my head.

Im on a low dose of amitriptyline because I suffer from fribomylagia (sort of nerve pain) and it helps me sleep at nights. I also feel more happy and less likey to snap.

Yep, a load of Paxil and I dosed it like an idiot. I took it for a while as ordered, but noticed nothing. Then I'd forget to take it, take two, be consistent, then not. I didn't notice shit, on or off it except being tired all the time. About a year like this and still felt normal...which meant, depressed.

I realized my depression wasn't chemical, it was situational/environmental. No drug would cure that.

Turns out after a lot of soul searching, that my wife and I hated each other. LOL:eek:. Divorce cured my depression, quick time! Gave her my house, car, furniture, almost everything just to get it over with. Whatever, shit can be replaced. But I was SOOOO happy, it didn't bother me at all.

House and a bunch of shit: 750k
Not waking up to a life you hate: PRICELESS!

I don't want to start another thread so I'll borrow this one. :)

Buddy of mine calls me up and asks about a contraindication in the Wellbutrin literature. It says to tell your doctor if you're on oral or injectable systemic steroids, because they can lower the seizure threshold. Does it refer to corticosteroids specifically? I know a lot of juicers are on Wellbutrin and no one's ever mentioned this contraindication that I've seen.

More coming out about Saddam Hussein. We now know he takes Viagra and he has as many as six mistresses. No wonder Congress is reluctant to take action against this guy - he's one of their own. Jay Leno

Found the above quote at "Shopsmore Viagra" and thought it was funny. Enjoy!

I have been on lexapro for 4 years.

It takes me most serious lows away. I am predisposed to depression so it has made my life better. I don't see myself being off of some sort of anti-depressant anytime soon. I've tried and it's just not worth it.

I keep waking up in the middle of the night which is making me tired through out the day. I was started on paxil becasue I went to the Dr and told him how I was feeling; Depressed about nothing, very emotion, panic attacks, etc. I never had this problem before. It started when I came back from my NY road trip.... maybe the stress from the trip cause it? I was always alittle emotional and get overly depressed about rough situations. I hope things get better and I do not won't to rely on a drug to get me feeling normal.

My doctor wanted to give me Wellbutrin but I was hesitant because of what it said in the package insert about not breaking the tablet or no alcohol with this or it can cause a seizure so he gave me something else at the time . I know I'm dependant on what I use or I don't sleep good or feel like I'm in a trance the next day and have tried twice to get off this stuff . He recommended a clinic and the state pays for the rehab .

My Experience

I have a family history of depression... When I was 20 (now 30) my parents got divorced, school was tough... Doc put me on paxil... I didnt like it, I always felt tired... I stopped taking it after 2 months, I couldnt stand it.

A year or so later, I thought I would give another type a try... I went on Zoloft, which killed my sex drive so I stopped after a month... A year or so later I went on preatique, I didnt like that then wellbutrin and didnt like that...

Finally last year my Doc put me on Adderrall, and that has been the trick... I know its not really meant to treat depression, but with my moderate ADD I wanted to give it a try.

I wish I would have started using Adderrall much sooner... It gives me a sense of well being, my head is completely clear, I dont feel tired until bed time, I can concentrate...

Im on 20mg/day but thats because I dont have insurance... or else I would use the 25mg extended release...

I wish you luck... Antidepresents work for some... For me they dont, and I will never use them again.

Lastly, about a month ago I started Bikram Yoga and I since I feel that much better. It takes about 2 weeks to really start feeling the benefits, but I guarantee it will help with overall well being.... I was COMPLETELY skeptical... Now Im sold

I've been on paxil , wellbutron, zoloft, and lexapro.The only theing those anti D's did was give me apathy and less drive than I had when I was in my early thirties. I kept accumulating bodyfat after I got out of Special forces:banghead: . It wasn't until last year (46 years old then ) that I had a blood test that revealed the underlying problem. I had low testosterone. I guess you can say that test cyp is my anti depression med:headbang: I wish I had my test levels checked earlier.

paxil

I've been on Paxil ever since my mother past away over 10 years ago. I've tried every way possible to try and get off of it. My problem isn't that I'm depressed anymore...it is that I go through extreme withdrawls when I try to wean off of it. I can't take the horrible sick feeling I get when I try to take get off of the paxil.

Maybe a bit off topic as far as sides. But something else is at work here as far as the number of depressed people on meds these days.

The best thing I ever did was drop the fear, know that the shit might hit the fan emotionally and that it wouldn't kill me, I would bear it. Know we can't control everything and give up trying to. The worst that can happen is death...And so what? And I'm not gonna give away every moment of life fearing that moment. I'm gonna have a blast until that happens and live as it suits me.

I also wonder if too many just feel trapped in the lives they've architected and feel like they can't get free. But we can. Remember: You don't HAVE TO do anything. There are always other choices. People may be hurt and disappointed. Too bad. I'd rather be a little selfish in my pursuits than depressed for everyone else's benefit.

I also wonder if just we know too much about these meds.

For example, we hear that with No PCT = sex drive drops, Tren kills boners, Withdrawal from meds is rough and may be impossible for some ,etc, etc.

I remember coming off AAS the first time in the early 90's, running Deca only cycles and all sorts of stupid shit. I screwed my brains out on those cycles! I had no idea about PCT...I simply ran out and couldn't get more AAS...well, sex drive was fine, I got smaller and was depressed for a while, but it straightened out.

Later, I dropped Paxil and nothing. I was depressed on it, depressed off it. Same. Sex drive was ok throughout. I dropped it and threw it away, and forgot about it. Maybe Im just lucky...

I'm not saying the sides aren't real, but the gravity of them is increased when we are anxious about them and waiting.

I was taking Lexapro but man they knocked me out. I now take low dosage of Xanax .25 once in a while when my job stresses me out. Wow I sleep like a baby on these.
