Antidepressants


I’ve been on antidepressants for decades; for the past several years I’ve tried a few times to lower the dose as I felt that I no longer needed the full dose I’ve been on, however a few days in I start having symptoms again – which for me are getting irritable, judgmental, and very grumpy. I know that these drugs, while on one hand are helpful, at the same time change my ability to work with my mind / thoughts, as it feels like the brain chemistry is getting in the way somehow. (I get that that’s a thought I’m having, but it’s in response to observable phenomena). Any experience from working with others on how these meds affect our ability to work with our brains / thoughts?
