This is why I’m thinking about going off antidepressants

They come with heavy withdrawal side effects when you do. be careful.

I came off antidepressants, which were doing nothing for me longterm, and needed an alternative so I found some effective herbal supplements after researching nootropics, and looked into more lifestyle-based interventions as well. Just went for a walk in the sun, appreciating the nature around me and that's something I never would have done when I was on meds. But, I started with my herbal treatment + daily selfcare habits (especially building up my hygiene and cleaning habits). So far so good. But yeah, I don't know that I'd ever have got through the withdrawal without finding an alternative.
