Diagnosed with clinical depression in 1995. I've been on an array of drugs since then - the only one that has worked for me is Prozac. Without it, I am not able to function. With it, I'm a productive member of society. It's not a placebo effect in my case - it's essential to my life.
Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!
Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

I have taken an anti depressant for years now. (2005?) Several times I’ve stopped taking it, thinking I didn’t need it anymore, not wanting to need it anymore, but every time I had to go back on it. I really felt the loss of it when I didn’t take it! I take Nefazodone, it’s an old medication but works for me.
