I am done with anti-depressants. Saw my meds doc today. He indicated all of the minor side effects I was having from weaning off my anti-depressant (took one every other day for two weeks, took last one 10 days ago) are usual and should all disappear over the next 7 - 10 days...EXCEPT the tears. I find myslef to be very easily moved to tears emotionally, both from sad and happy events. You know, I'm the person who cries at the Hallmark commercials. Teasingly, Dr. B. said to stay away from the Hallmark channel, LIfetime, Oprah shows, etc. I realize now that part of the reason I wanted to drop this med was because my emotional life was feeling flat. I don't mind some tears here and there.... however they can be a bit embarrassing... as in have a catch in my voice when thanking someone for good service!!
