Hi everyone. Getting to the point where I think I might need anti depressants for depression. I get severe bouts of it and anxiety mainly around flare ups. I get stressed easily which I don't think helps lupus. Think it could be a bit of a vicious cycle! Would love a little break from it and to be able to relax. Can't watch tele or read and have no interest in seeing friends and family and think the world is against me. Does anyone take anti depressants and do they help? If so which ones?Tried amitryptiline for a time for pain etc and they made me worse and into a loonie!
