After a lot of talks and discussions with my therapist I’m finally on medication again.

I started again after 4 months. And the side effects were horrible. I hope it’s worth it

What did they start you on? I started Zoloft about two weeks ago. The side effects were horrible the first week.

Do you like anything about it? I think this is better than lithium, but it still doesn’t feel right.
I had it before and it worked great. Had citalopram before that wasn’t helping at all. Was more like eating peppermints

Having to deal with the side effects of a new medication really suck! Sorry you have to go through that. But, Zoloft/Sertraline was a good medication for me, it really helped me get back on my feet when paired with Wellbutrin. I hope you get positive effects from it too!
