Well I am on Prozac, actually the generic for it, but I am. I am trying to be a better mom. I don't think that I am depressed, but this is suppose to fix a chemical in my head and calm me down some. I call them my crazy pills. I hate taking something but hopefully I don't have to be on them for a long time. Anyone had any luck with prozac or vice versa?
My sister takes Zoloft for depression. She is a stay at home mother of three children and well her husband is never around. For her, it really does help. She tried once to take herself off, but became depressed again quickly. From what I see with her, she is alot happier and is able to function rather than become overwhelmed with the kids, and the cleaning, and the relationship with her husband etc. etc.I also don't think you should feel embarressed or "crazy" because you take them. If anything, you should feel good about yourself for recognizing you had a problem and seeking help.I have tried to take an antidepressant, but they made me sick.
Thanks for your post. :smile:
