Like me, have you stopped taking anti depressants. I was on them for over 20 years. Some suited me, some had side effects I could not tolerate. Over a year ago at my doctors suggestion I withdrew from my latest anti depressant. She did not suggest where I go from there.
I withdrew very slowly from a drug that is well known to be difficult to get off, and I successfully withdrew with no symptoms.
Whilst on anti depressants, I took supplements, which I continue to do, and have added others. I take multivitasmin and minerals, cod liver oil, Omega3, Vitamin D3, Vitamin B complex, and I have just ordered 5HTP and magnesium.
I would like to hear from other people who now take supplements instead of anti depressants, and how they feel about it. Do you feel you would like to continue on supplements, and never go back on anti depressants? Do you feel you can manage your depression without medication?
By the way I have tried St John's Wort too. Has anyone had success with this?
I would love to hear from other people here, who like me, want to stop taking anti depressants. Thank you.
