I know I do get obsessed when thinking any little pain is a tumor. I do have thyroid issues dont take any medications. I do have anxiety but I though was under control.
Look, antidepressants can help alot of people and can save lives in some situations, however there are some things to keep in mind. They can make things worse for some people and can make you more depressed or anxious. It is also a hassle to stop them once you decide to do so. Also, they cause alot of side effects for some people such as weight gain, lose of libido and sexual function, abdominal pain, jitteriness, sleep problems and restlessness. However if you do decide that you need them, make sure you keep it in your mind that these medications were made to treat a symptom ( anxiety and depression) not the underlying condition causing them, thus, while you are on it keep utilizing other things to improve such as therapy. Also don't be frustrated because they might take up to 4 weeks to work, patience is key, and its all about trial and error because some medications work for certain people and don't work for others.
