> Background is did not even realize it was depression until almost had a "melt down". On the Lexapro have started feeling like my old happy self and recognize that the behavior I was attibuting to others either didn't exist (on their part) or was in reaction to my own disfunction. Where do I go from here is - am I to stay on ADs forever, or should I just go with the flow and not worry about it for now? Family history is - grandmother institutionalized for pychotic behavior after post partum depression. Father alcoholic. Son is bi-polar.
> Looking back, I believe I've had bouts of depression before but was untreated.

Hi there, sorry about your family!!! Must have been hard growing up and it must be hard dealing with your son. But its great that your feeling good. I read about statistics and one shows that someone who quits their meds in the 1st 3 years 2 out of 3 will relapse. With your family history its one heck of a risk if the lexapro continues to work for you. I have no plans whatsoever in quitting my med. Its to much of a risk for me. As long as you dont feel drugged and your on the right dose why risk it. You feel normal right? You just take something to feel that way. Nothing wrong with that!!!! TAKE CARE!!!
