A while ago I wrote a post about why I don't like depression pills and why I didn't want to start the medication in the first place. If you haven't read it you find the post here. Now I've started taking less and less doses and I already feel a big difference:
I'm not that tired anymore - I've been working a lot lately so the hours just ain't enough if I sleep 11 hours. Now I can sleep 8-9 hours a night and I still have energy the whole day through.
I don't get as much anxiety attacks - which means that when my normal hormons starts to function again and my brain isn't depending on the depression pills, I actually feel happier. Because when I took the full dose my lows were SUPER low for some reason. Now it's easier to handle bad situations whenever they show up.
It's easier to eat - for some reason I felt full all the time while I was on medication and that made it very hard to gain weight. Now I more easily feel when I'm hungry and don't get full as quickly as before.
The only thing I've noticed while cutting down on the medicine is that the small voice telling me that I'm fat shows up a bit more often. But I'm strong enough to handle that now so I still feel it's a good decision to stop the medication completely. And since the anxiety is much less over all without the pills I think it's easier to handle the downsides as well.
I wanted to share this with you since I've gotten some questions from people that also are eating the same depression pills, asking if I can update on what happens to the body when you cut down on the medicine. So here's the answer. Big love. <3
