Hi, I was just wondering about anti-depressants, some people get worse before they get better I know that, but how long do you feel worse for? Can anybody tell me their experience of them? As this is what's happened to me, I got so bad I stopped taking them as I wasn't getting any sleep and I couldn't handle the mental side of it. I have 2 children and can't feel like that around them. I. Wish I could go away and take them til I feel better but I can't.
