10+ Year Users of SSRI--Effects

Posted by NewQuestions on August 21, 2008, at 15:41:57

For those that have used SSRI's for 10 continuous years, let me know:

1. How are you feeling?
2. Do they still work?
3. Any new side effects?
4. Has it affected your cognition?
5. Do you think if you go off of them, you will snap back to "baseline"?

I went off of them for a little while after 14 years and became way more obsessive and anxious then I was prior to being on them, and seemed to get more depressed. Its almost like after artifically increasing your seratonin for 14 years, if you stop doing it, your brain will not produce as much as it did. Also, I am just not as smart as I was either--memory, verbal, attention to detail, abstraction. If you stay off these things for over a year, do you really think you will be back to "normal"?
