Has anyone tried antidepressents?


    I was on Mirtazapine for a while, but it just made me feel emotionless and when I didn't take it I felt even worse than usual, but I know that other antidepressants can work for some people. It's usually about getting the one that works for you.

    It's difficult, from a personal experience, yes they had helped, as someone who has studied psychology and looked at the evidence, well there isn't much to say it's not better than a placebo for mild-moderate and minimal effect in severe depression.
