to the best of my knowledge anti-depressants change the chemical balance in your brain, if your not clinically diagnosed with depression, it can lead to suicide and crazy sh*t like that if your taking an anti-depressant. id either go to a doctor or try and wait it out and see how you feel when your cycle is over.

We had a discussion regarding gear and depression last night. A couple of points (as I have been on a 5 year cycle of anti-deps They take 2+ weeks to reach their full effectiveness. Secondly, if you are not suffering from chronic depression, I would not get on and then get off the meds just to use gear. Best evaluated by a practicing psychiatrist. Another issue is libido. If you have any issues with libido during the cycle, you can bet your life on it that anti-d's will have a negative impact. Wellbutrin has the least or if any effect on libido. I use it with lexapro and I feel like a champ. Depression sux and is often mis-understood or unaccepted by a large majority of folks saying garbage like "dont let your feelings control you, blah blah blah". Its an imbalance of seratonin or upsurge. 1 in 4 people suffer from depression. Good luck.

Tons and tons of people cycle while on SSRI's and anti-depressents. Not to mention Psychotropics for psychosis. It will be fine to start on some mood stabilizers but run it by your doc that you're using the test. Legally he can't do sh*t about the juice cause there is a confidentiality clause that whatever you tell him is safe unless it will cause harm to someone else. I've used paxil and lexapro with no problems. I'm off them now b/c i've got it under control but don't hesitate imo. Good luck.
