  • I have been on and off a few antidepressants over the last 20 years (34 now). I fight to stay off them mainly because I don’t like the side effects and don’t want to rely on drugs to get me through the day. I have tried natural remedies with little success (trypophan, 5htp, etc).

    In 2011, I also went through Jaw Surgery and it was absolutely horrific. I haven’t been the same person since and it has magnified my anxiety/depression ten fold. My depression made me think I needed the surgery done when in fact I could of just lived with a bad bite much easier than dead nerves.

    Anyhow, I recently came off Remeron and I fight physical symptoms of depression daily now. No appetite, low energy, hot flashes, poor sleep quality. I am close to scheduling an appointment with a psychiatrist because I just can’t fight this on my own anymore. The remeron was a good fit for me.. Gave me my appetite and energy, but had horrible stomach problems on it. Either diareah or a tightness in my stomach.

    I don’t know how I can live another 20 years like this…
