Motherhood and what's left over.
I ve been down this road ..they helped with the anxiety and panic attacks i had after the kids were born, it worked, and then i just decided i didnt want to be reliant on them so i stopped..so for me they were a medicine i needed for a particular problem and when i got through that i didnt need them anymore..i suppose its a matter of how sick you feel and if taking them will make your life a little better,i didnt feel suicidal, i coped better..ps, i didnt go to sports day either ;)
Arse, blogger is messing again. Take 2: Yay, I've launched a war of rebellion against Sports Day! I hope this doesn't damage the world and make for a pathetic fat generation who can't cope with competition... AS to the suicide, I read that Prozac can cause suicide as the people on it were suicidal already, but the drug gave them the strength and energy etc to actually go for it. This article suggests it's a bit more than that though... interesting about the Columbine kids, and other school massacres being on similar drugs.
Well, I'm on Lexapro and thank god. That's all I have to say about that.
It's really hard, Mary. I know lots of people who are saved by them. Friends and family who've had really good experiences. I just don't feel like a very lucky person, maybe.
I don't know. You have to remember it's depressed people taking them.
Yes, but not necessarily suicidal or homicidal people. But yes, and the worry is still that they're being given indiscriminately to people who may have god knows what underlying psychosis. Scary. I'm not saying I fear I'll go on a killing spree or anything. I just do read a lot about people who feel a lot worse rather than a lot better on the serotonin reuptake inhibitor drugs, and I don't know if doctors really know what to do with that.
Personally I don't think I'd go on them under any circumstances, but I'd probably go get drunk instead.I'm kinda old school like that.
