bad mistake Shelby Chappell Due November 29; 1 child; Alberta 1575 posts

So when I finally got the courage to go to my doctor about PPD I was put on prozac. It helped a lot and made me feel less manic. I stupidly thought and also listened to my DH when he said I don't need to be on them for more then a few weeks, just till I'm over this "hump". I did stop taking them and I wish I hadn't. At first it was me honestly forgetting to take one and just shrugging it off to a point where I never thought about taking them. Lately I'm losing my mind again. I love my DS like crazy but I find myself getting so worked up and angry with him. Some days we have the best times and others I don't want to be a mom. I just want to be left alone and not have anyone talk to me. I go from feeling like a good mom and want to brag and am so happy to being a miserable person who can't do anything but b***h. I've noticed it a lot now and I realize that I made a huge mistake by going off the prozac. Needless to say I am going to start taking them again and see if I can even get some counseling to help me out. I just needed to let this out. Today is not a good day for me. I wish I would have never stopped taking my meds. They helped me. UGH

Just remember, this is not really something you can control or "suck up"

I hope you start feeling better soon

good for you for realizing that you should get back on them. And therapy is a wonderful idea as well

The biggest problem with antidepressants is that when people feel better, they stop taking them, and then they get worse

Don't ever stop without talking to your prescribing doctor first.

Please don't stop. Meds give u a false sense of being "cured". Of course you feel better cause the meds are doing their job!!! Let it keep doing its job and talk to your dr next time before stopping.
