Most people, sooner or later, will experience depression, anxiety, or other negative feelings. Getting through that period is important, and there’s a lot of ways to do it. Antidepressants are one way, and while they can be very helpful, many aren’t aware of the difficulties of quitting (antidepressants have withdrawal), or of the side-effects.
Antidepressant withdrawal can be just as hard or harder as the original depression. Make a plan with your doctor early on for how you will eventually quit. While some doctors may warn patients not to suddenly quit, not all patients are fully informed as to why, so be sure to discuss side-effects (which may prompt a desire to quit), an exit plan, and withdrawal symptoms with your doctor.
Before trying antidepressants, especially if you catch depression or anxiety early, consider starting small, and keeping things easier to control.
Check in with yourself. Could lifestyle changes make an impact? Sleeping more, eating better, and getting outside may be enough to turn things around. If not, try layering herbal support onto those activities with D.S.A. MGRx. With ingredients known for supporting mood, D.S.A. MGRx let’s you stay in control of when and how much you need extra help.
If you need more help, try talking it out with someone, learning coping mechanisms, and if you need it, antidepressants. Antidepressants can be wonderful if you are given full understanding and a plan in advance.
When you start to feel like you need extra help, make small changes, and start with small, controllable support wit D.S.A. MGRx.
