My experiences with SSRIs have been pleasant so far. When I was in fourth grade, I had to be put on anti-depressants for a couple of months. It elevated my mood. It was like the colours came back to my life again.
Recently I had been put on them again for my OCD. I am taking Clonil and Depaxil for almost a year and it’s been great. Surely there were some side effects on the way when my body couldn’t adjust to the increase in dosage but eventually they worked out.
