If you have ever been diagnosed with depression and anxiety related disorders you are probably familiar with the process of trying different medications until you find the right one. Sadly, it almost always comes down to a doctor throwing different anti-depressants or mood stabilizers at you until one or two stick. The bad part about this is that when first starting depression medication they typically come with some pretty nasty side effects. SSRI’s or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors are usually the go to in terms of first line depression or anxiety treatment. There are many different SSRI’s, all of which will likely make you feel terrible at first until your body acclimates to the medicine. On top of that, depression medication typically takes anywhere from 2 weeks if you’re lucky to several months to begin showing any true value for mental health; and during this time it usually always gets worse before it gets better.
