Thread Name: BS: Anti-Depressants / Getting off of
Subject: RE: BS: Anti-Depressants / Getting off of
Bobert, (s)he is exercising, and realizes that exercise is working pretty well in combattting depression. Getting off the drugs is still an issue.

I was prescribed an antidepressant while undergoing cancer treatment. I wasn't especially depressed ~ I think it was just standard procedure. I dutifully took the medication for a day or two, but it nauseated me and (fortunately) I stopped before I got "hooked."

What I did use as "self-medication" ~ quite effectively ~ was pot. Not too many doctors would prescribe this, although there is some establishment recognition of "medical marijuana." Worked for me! I realize it's too late for "Most of You Know Me" to backtrack and start over, but someone else might be in a position to consider my experience.

I'm sure MG will have a field day with this anonymous message, but I don't give a shit!
