Welcome Tricia-
I'm only on one med right now but I have tried so many and have not really found one that has helped. I also have Sleep Apnea so I have extreme tiredness during the day which does not help things because it is harder to get going if I do at all.

Welcome Tricia! We're all in the same boat, so to speak. I don't take meds myself but I have in the past.

Hi, all--

I am happy to find this within this site. Many people don't understand MDD or the medication plight. I am trying to stay off my meds, but it is hard to especially when the insomnia and anxiety kick in.

I don't know if anyone else is struggling with these, but I wonder if some of the benzos affect weight gain.

Right now I have replaced my medication with food. It gives me that warm, cozy feeling.

I hope to get this under control and move forward like we all want to do.

Best wishes to all,
Tricia
