I have been on antidepressants for the last 30 years they never really helped me the last one was venalfaxin. Recently I wondered if the drugs were doing more harm than good as I have got steadily more depressed and anxious over the years to the point where I became like a zombie and just couldn't do anything anymore. All I could do was sleep and was at the point where I just wanted to die to be honest. 3 weeks ago I thought I wonder what would happen if I came off my meds so I started to taper off. I am now down to less than half my dose and I can't believe how much better I am, I have gone back to work, am taking an interest in life, I have my confidence back and am full of energy now. What made me to decide to come off my meds was a book I read called your medication may be your problem and there was a lot of case history story's in the book where people had been on antidepressants for a long period of time and then came off them and there simptoms seemed to subside. So anyway I'm going to get right off the meds now and see how it goes for me. If you are taking antidepressants and they work for you then that's all well and good but as for me they don't help but make me even more ill so I have nothing to lose by coming off them. Please note that if you decide to come off your meds please have a word with you GP and don't just stop taking them as you will have to taper of and stopping abruptly can be very dangerous
