Emotional Meds

Emotional Meds

Does any one take meds to help them improve their emotional distance. I'm not depressed, I am a very happy person....just emotionally detached.

I was on lexapro and it worked well. I went through a period of pretty profound depression. Eventually switched to Wellbutrin as one of the major side effects from lexapro was killing my relationship (I imagine you know what that is). I don't think about going off of it.

I take Wellbutrin as well & it is my life saver. I can't explain how it works. All I know is it works for me :)

I have major depression and take Wellburtin 150 x 3 a day...It really seems to help me.

Before the MS anti depressants were and ~still~ are being used for other reasons. There are better anti depressants depending on the particular problem. I may add I used them in the past but stopped because I didn't feel anything (detachment). They have come a long way since then.

I was prescribed some anti-depressant/anxiety medication shortly after my diagnosis. I no longer take it, but I feel like it helped me deal with all of the stress I was dealing with on top of the diagnosis. I agree with @A MyMSTeam Member since depression does not always mean that you are unable to get out of bed. Any negative change in behavior is concerning and it may just help to talk with someone. Life is too short to not live it to the fullest.
