When I first started on meds last July, I spent hours on google looking at online forums on how bad side effects could be with antidepressants.
I was terrified that I get the worst combination of side effects that it would make my symptoms even worse.
Thankfully, the only true symptom I started to develop were moderate dry mouth and vivid dreams. In the course of past 8 months of being on meds, I’m currently on my 3rd type of antidepressant as we are still trying to find the right combination.
Some gave me bad dreams every night but helped my mood a lot better. Some didn’t give me any dreams but it made me very anxious. Right now, I’m on an SNRI and it gives me insanely vivid nightmares. The thing is, the moment I wake up – I forget every part about that nightmare.
I wake up almost every morning in tears, covered in sweat from my nightmare.
Fellow bloggers, any tips on how you dealt with some of the craziest side effects?
I want to stay strong and not give up on finding my “match” of medication. As much as I hate the side effects, it helps my mood a ton in the day time. Any advice on what I should do?
