> Seriously do you feel antidepressants are safe? Seems so many both success when off them and having to keep adding meds if stay on them. What's up with this? Phillipa

Regarding safety, I nearly died twice when I attempted suicide while off medication.

Seriously, do you feel like someone NOT taking an antidepressant who is in a major depressive episode and contemplating suicide is safe?

Regarding "success" ... yes, Parnate is successful for me and remarkably so; it's the side effect profile that requires additional medication. The whole point of the other medication I take is so that I can remain on Parnate.

I also take Klonopin for night terrors regarding my father's death (I have post-traumatic grief or complicated grief) and that's the one medication that I hope, with therapy, to be able to stop taking one day. I do not like the idea of being dependent on a benzodiazepine, personally, but I also don't like the idea of waking up screaming for my father and reliving his death in such vivid detail it feels like it's happening all over again.

I think you're confusing safety with efficacy, IMHO.
