Hello, I am 24 and I have suffered with depression on and off since I was about fifteen. i have found that the bouts of depession I have are usually caused by an upset in my life, and certain things seem to trigger these off. I also believe that this time of the year can make you feel so much worse as the weather and dark mornings and evenings do not help.
I often feel guilty about how low I feel and I have not told any of my friends about my condition or the prescription drugs that I am on.
I hadnt taken anti-depressants since I was much younger again around 16, but just before Christmas I was very low so my doctor put me on citalopram, I was on this until a couple of weeks ago when I returned because I could not sleep and really did not notice that much difference. I was then put on mirtazapine which i was to take one a day for a week then start taking two aday after the first week.
These tablets made me feel really strange almost like the blood in my head would start pumping really fast, i cannot explain this feeling, or compare it to something else I had felt before. so I stopped.
anyway I know I did not give these tablets a chance to work, and i have not been back to speak to my GP although i should. I really dont want to be put on anymore tablets and I am hopeing to find another way to make myself feel better. I have extreme good days than black hole like days, I would really like these to just even out a bit.
I joined the gym a few days ago and I am going to start going everyday if I can. My gym is expensive so in a way it makes me go even if i dont want to see anyone or leave the house.
I will let you know how I get on, please let me know if you know anything else I can try.
