I'd be curious to hear from people who suffered from depression back in the 70s or 80s, before Prozac or the other SSRIs hit the market. What medication(s) were you prescribed? Were you given a TCA or MAOI anti-depressant? If neither, what did you take? Most importantly-- Looking back on these years, do you feel that your depression was properly dealt with and the medications were helpful?
