It scares me to think I would need this my entire life. there would have to eventually be long term side effects. I have minor depression due to divorce and economy. Many stated that when they stopped, they started again. I've been on this med for 4 days, tired all the time, but just a little dry mouth and slight headache. Can this be a short term fix?
all antidepression meds take 4-8 weeks to actually work. it seems like your having side effects to the meds your on and should try a different one or atleast tell your doc. also antidepressants dont have addictive properties but if you ever want to stop using them you HAVE to taper off with them or your problems will be much worse. with minor depression you might not need it your entire life. i would recomend adding a psychologist to your regular treatment method to learn coping techniques and/or do cognitive behavioral therapy (this has the highest success rate for many different disorders)
