This is a community journal for anyone taking SSRI (Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitor) antidepressants, or for those who have loved ones taking them.
SSRI medication has literally saved many, many lives, and a lot of people have really positive stories to tell. Unfortunately, they also have a lot of side effects, and having a support group can be comforting.
Side effects can include insomnia, drowsiness, nausea, and sexual dysfunction among other things.
This community is about the ups and the downs of being on these drugs, and a place to find information, share stories, and talk with people who *understand*.
This community is NOT for people who want to come in and bash antidepressant users. Some people think that these medications are "a crutch" or whatever, and those people are NOT WELCOME in this community. Any such posts will be deleted.
