The first antidepressant medication I ever took was at the age of 24, it was a tricyclic and after 24 hours I felt so much better, no anxiety, no depression, I felt like I had died and gone to heaven.
Then later in my 20s I was switched to Seroxat, again no anxiety and they worked well within 4 days. Infact I wondered at the time if I felt too good.
Then I came off them at the age of around 31. Four years later the depression resurfaced and I tried many of the SSRIs, they all increased the anxiety, suicidal feelings and never ever really worked the same again.
I really don't know why that happened and I'd give anything to know because since the age of 35 my life has never been the same.
