I used to, made me extremely ill. Now I don't, and I'm very happy about that.

They can work in similar ways...though anti-depressants are more a long term relief, whereas tranquilizers are more for short term relief.

Tranquilizers are also addictive, whereas anti-depressants are supposedly not (depends what your definition of addictive is).

I took paroxetine (seroxat) and venlafaxine (effexor) a few years ago when I was having a bad time, but I don't think either of them had any effect whatsoever. Time is the best healer IMHO.

I'm partial to tranqs like valium or temazepam if I can get my hands on any.

I take Alprazolam ( Tranquillizer ) , Risperdal and Serlain ( Anti-depressants ). I think I'm a bit addicted to them. I would like to get rid off them but yeah, I suffer badly of anxiety and also of social phobia and a bit of necrophobia. But I'm doing things to get these things sorted out ; it gonna take loads of time though.

This is not because you are happy that things like these are shit, there are loads of people who need them badly. It helps but you have, at the same time, to be followed by a very good therapist to get things sorted out. Have depression is the worse thing on earth. Comes at the 3rd place in my mind after 1. Uncurable illnesses 2. Cancer . You, of course, may disagree with me : I'm open minded.

She's just saying that she doesn't need them, cause she's happy.
and doesn't feel the urge to take them.
So don't get your panties up in a bunch

and cancer and anti-dep+tranqs are not related imo.

I'm very calm, Mandy. She said though, things like these were shit : just my 2 little cents.

I actually found your post a little insensitive too. And I am on nothing and never have been.

Based on your reasoning in the post above; I take it you are "against" alcohol?:dance:

I'm on a truckload of mood stabilizers, anti-psychotics, antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications and sleeping pills. I think I need to go to rehab.

Well ironically you can feel happy but also be depressed at the same time :shrug: Depression's more of an underlying thing I think.

I'm pleased to say I'm off the anti-depressants now but I can't say they made me feel any better. Counselling helped and worked best for me :)

I'd say I could fit into that category. But I don't know...if something troubles me greatly I think about it, normally in bed, and can almost always reason it out to the point where it no longer bugs me much. I think it would have to take something AWFUL to make me depressed to the point where I can't stop thinking about whatever it might be. I do have a few things that could be described as depressing about myself, in the way that you mention the underlying thing, but they don't really bother me much:shrug:...it is weird.

Nope.
I know what triggers my anxiety and I try to stay away from it. I smoked once to calm down, had a drink twice, and just realized that it wasn't worth that.
Time softens almost everything, I learned. You just never know how long it will take.
