Thanks – very helpful resource!
It’s a real mind-[blanked out sweary word :)]! Especially if, like me, you’d never had any kind of SSRI or mood-altering drug before. It’s scary because I felt like I was losing control, but as I said, halving the does really took the edge off thankfully. Ultimately, like your experience you have to do what’s right for you.
My wife also takes SSRIs for obsessive compulsive disorder and it took her years to find the right one. I’d just say Gareth that if medication is something you’re considering, don’t let the experience put you off completely. It may just be that you need to find a more suitable one.
