I am going to the doctor today to ask for help with weaning off of the medication. I am only 27 years old and I don't want to be reliant on a pill to make me happy. I never had sadness or depression, but something in my brain stopped firing and the pill helps me have emotions and be myself. I want to stop the pills because I do not like taking pills at all! Why do other people want to stop taking these drugs?
For about 6 months prior to starting Celexa, I did not feel like myself and I didn't know why. I am usually energetic, excited, happy, funny, and loving life. THen all of a sudden the symptoms of depression set in. There were no life changes or reasons for me to be depressed...I just had the medical symptoms. If I stop taking these pills safely, will my normal happiness come back to me without this pill??
