> I'm approaching 10years of antidepressant use for severe depression. I have taken several different types. I would like to know how using these medications may affect my health in the long run. It's a matter of I can't live without them but, can I live long with them without ruining my health?
Iris: I was on Prozac for 4 yr. and Paxil for the same. Had to go off because I was becoming manic - Dr. didn't know if it was drug-induced or that I have a problem that way. I'm not saying that that is going to happen to you. He then put me on Depakote for mood stabilizing. I've learned that some people just need the help of the anti-depressants to maintain their mental health. Nothing wrong w/that. Just like a diabetic, etc. Your Dr. would be the best source of answer to your concerns. Best to you! Carmen
