Hi. I've been suffering from horrible, horrible emotions because of the thought patterns
I have created in my mind and therefore I can't get rid of them. I am suicidal as hell. I'm going to see a doctor at 29th and they'll probably give me an anti depressant. What im asking is, if i take this anti depressant regularly for a weeks and lets say my anxiety levels dropped, is this means my thought pattern will change to positive? Or will anti depressant work at all? Because all they made so far was make me feels much worse everytime i took them.

In my experience - they make me feel less bad, not really better. My meds take the edge off my negative moods, they make them easier to handle.

Not all anti-depressants work the same on all people - it might take a few tries to get teh right one.

But, trust me - when they work, it's worth it.
