Not all antidepressants are for everyone. I've tried zoloft and prozac which turned me into a zombie, yes. Wellbutrin gave me a clear, motivated
outlook on life. It was great. A year of steady motivation, way less irritability and newfound joy of living. Too bad the high blood pressure side
effect was a bit too much. As a martial artist, having my cardio affected in such a way was a deal breaker.
Evidently, antidepressants DO work. No need to demonize them as the meds can be a life saver for people on their last rope. On the other hand, the
wrong compounds can make you lose grasp of that rope altogether instead of helping you climb it. You see, the hard part in all this is enduring the
mental rollercoaster ride while trying different medications. This is where people that go off the deep end are abandoned to their sad fates.
Antidepressants should be administered with VERY CLOSE SUPERVISION by doctors and family members; not dispensed like candy for PROFITable kickback$
from big pharma. Any changes for the worse should be noted and the medicine switched to a different one. Some people react better to serotonin
reuptake inhibitors, some to dopamine reuptake inhibitors. Some may need lithium, etc. We are all wired differently.
