Wow, this is so depressing. I've been on it for over 4 years now and it was the BIGGEST mistake I've ever made. I'm missing out on life. I never feel well and all I can think about is my two beautiful grown daughters. I was put on this medication for depression but never really knew how bad depression could be until now. I want to get off of this but fear that I will never feel or be the same. I can't even believe this has happened. My whole life is ruined. No one really knows for sure if the damage is forever because there are no studies. I'm just so sick and tired of being sick and tired. I can't even find the words I want to write. I'm just tired and have really bad brain fog. I wish there was something I could enjoy but there really isn't and that is the complete opposite of who I was before. I wonder if you ever got off of this medication? If anyone sees this and wants to reply I would greatly love to hear from you. Sincerely, LarsyView Thread
