  • Do antidepressants work? ?

    I have no identity, no job, no education. I feel worthless, useless and without a purpose, I'm not adding anything to the world. I'm living on benefits. I didn't know my mother until I was 14 &we still don't have a great relationship and my boyfriend expresses frequently that he can't stand me. I don't think ill ever be good enough for anyone. My brother past away when I was 17 which caused me to have an eating disorder and self harm. At the age of 20 I went against my beliefs in abortion for all the right reasons, and at 10 weeks I had a physical termination, whilst my reasonings were justified it left me with a great feeling of guilt and depression. The arguments between me &my boyfriend have been escalating to physical fights with vulgar and disgusting words being passed. I lock myself in the bathroom just to cry and recently I've started self harming again. I don't think anyone truly understands me.  I've never wanted professional help before, people look at me as if I'm silly and overreacting &I've heard the medication can be hard to get off. But as time has gone on and I haven't overcome these feelings I feel as though I need professional help now.  Since I was 17 I've had trouble sleeping and still do occasionally, I've lost my sex drive, my menstrual cycle is all over the place, I'm easily irritated and feel very tearful and emotional, I often feel worthless and wish the day was over. Will antidepressants help?

  • OTC for anxiety?

    I was wondering if anybody knew of a good otc product for anxiety? I have been researching the internet as well as past questions on here and have come up w/either St. John's Wort or Valerian Root. The problem is, the research I have done on St John's is it is used more so for depression, which I do not have, and Valerian Root is used for insomnia, which I also don't have. I just have anxiety and get bad nerves. So I am worried if I take Valerian in the mornings, it is going to put me to sleep or make me tired, when really I just don't want to feel anxious. Does anyone have any experience with either? I have never taken, so I could be completely wrong? Or if not, do you know of any different otc medications that are just for anxiety? Thank you in advance!

  • Can I take adderall tonight?

    So just a few days ago I took adderall for the first time. It was amazing. Like a miracle drug or something. I could focus in class, I didn't eat as much. It was almost euphoric. I took 10mg that day. The next day I took 50mg and didn't get to sleep until 4 in the morning...woke up at 7:30. I found that way after I took the medicine, when it should've already worn off, was making my heart beat seriously fast. I still didn't eat a lot that day. Took 25mg today and though the effect lasted long, I really, really just want to take another 25mg so I can focus and do my project that's due tomorrow, but I feel that the sleep deprivation will effect me in some way. Having a eating disorder, and not being persuaded by food is something I can't seem to give up either. I ate a little too much tonight when I came down from the adderall. I feel that if I don't take it though, that it'll add to my terrible anxiety caused by food and will send me into a deep depression like it has in the past. I feel a little trapped like its either I choose to damage my body from no sleep, or just live with my depression and not take it. I feel like right at this moment, I need it. I don't want to abuse it, and let it ruin my life. I just want to use it in moderation when I truly need it, like right now. It'd be seriously appreciate if someone answers back with an answer, or even any of your own experiences with the drug. Thanks.
