    hello sue

    i have just been prescribed anti depressants i havent started taking them only just got them, but just a word of hope i,m going to give it every shot because i feel awful after many years of not knowing what was wrong with me because of a multitude of bad things that have happened in my life( long,long,long story)but my nurse is fantastic if you have a mental health nurse at your practice see her or him they are your first steps to getting better and you know it's not unusual to cry or become weepy,just dont consider the "s" option, just remember you are not alone there's alot of us about many good wishes and good luck - jean-uk-x

    Hi

    I have been on Citolopram for 4 years now, I have to say I felt better straight away, I laid in bed that evening smiling instead of crying. My problem was constant crying, I am also going through the menapause and I think that is where the depression stems from. The only side affects I have suffered are dry nose and weight gain,. I sleep like a baby every night but I don't really want to get out of bed in the morning, it takes me a while toget going, before I was out of bed at 5 am doing housework, I dont know how my family put up with that, I also used to get up at 2 am and bake. I now sleep, I do dream a lot but I don't always remember. Some days I still have a downer, but I think that is perfectly normal, every body has down days don't they. The upside is that the down days dont turn into the black hole, and crying. There are times when I think of coming off them, but I then think about the black hole and I never want to go down there again, If I have to take them for the restof my life I don't really care. Recently I have suffered a lot of indigestion, I think I will try giving up coffee for a while and see if that helps.

    Good luck, for me they have been a life saver.

    Good luck

    I have been on antidepressants for 5 months now, and like ann,have found huge relief from the crying, and feeling down. I also get some bad times of the day, but they are few and far between. Does anyone else get the weirdest dreams? and the weight gain?

    Sometimes the best things are all around us in creation, and taking time to enjoy it. ALso finding employment that is right for you, not what anyone else thinks is right for you. Being happy and contented is worth much more than any amount of money.

    Hope to hear a response soon.
