I experience shivers, anxiety, brain zaps, confusion, muscle twiching, flashing vision, mini-convulsions, buzzing brain, tremors, insomnia, apathy, and the list goes on.
I don't care what any of you say about these medications not causing brain dammage, they do.
Very slowly of course, and the effect is outweighed by temporary brimming positivity.
But sooner or later most people I've seen on/off this board humbly admit that they can never regain the *remission* that they once had.
I used to be the foremost supporter of psychiatric drugs, but knowing what I know
now, I could honesty not recommend anyone to
take an antidepressant.
They *are* addictive in the worst way. Every time I try to reduce celexa, I get symptoms that are *much*, *much* worse than what I *ever* initally had, and it lasts ******forever******. I am on like month 3 of reducing my celexa from 20-10mg, and I'm *still* getting brain zaps, and insanely overpowering demonic rage, that I have never experienced in my life (even despite concurrent treatment with mood stabalizers!!!!!)
The drug companies don't know that much. We're trusting them too much. If I had a right mind, I'd get out while I still have a chance.
