Unregistered Posted September 29, 2007 Share Posted September 29, 2007 Hi all, I'm trying to put together material for a talk to raise awareness of MI, and I need to find out more about depression and ADs. I have very limited experience of ADs on their own, specifically only a few weeks on prozac - I take TCA's continually, but only in combination with a mood stabiliser, so that masks the AD effect. When I was on prozac alone, I knew I was just as crappy as before, but it was like that part was isolated and in another room. It was there, but I just didn't care about it as much. This makes me think that it would be a good med for reactive depression: it shields you from the pain while whatever caused it gets resolved or fades away. But what would I know? So my question is this: for someone with chronic MDD, what does it feel like to be on ADs, assuming that they are working? Are you aware of them? Is the pain still there but masked? Is it there but attenuated? TIA Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
