I'm 23, and I've been on antidepressants like 5 years ago, and I can't remember what it was called but all it did was make me feel numb, and not myself, so of course I stopped, and my depression has just worsened, so my therapist just prescribed me effexor.. and I'm a little weary of taking it, I just want to know what I'm getting myself into and what to expect and y'know, not be scared.
