I think it may be time for me to rethink antidepressants. I was leary on taking them at all. I took Paxil for years (5) for anxiety and I gained a ton of weight and had no emotion so I am very fearful in taking anything now..but I'm in between a rock and a hard place I'm sure a lot of you know. I am so miserable and see no bright side. Hell I am 34, have 3 great kids and a great husband and can't do a damn thing. I was so active and loved working out..but yet everyday something is taken from me. I am going down a scary road.
