Default Antidepressants

What antidepressants, if any, has your doctor or psychiatrist prescribed to you?

I currently take Venlafaxine 37.5mg and Mirtazipine 15mg tablets.
The venlafaxine doesn't do shit. All it does is make me feel nauseous and awful. The mirtazipine gives me a slight high that does help me fall asleep at night, but I need a higher dosage to see more positive effects.

I was started on Prozac when I was 15 (I was feeling down and anxious )
It sure worked...I became friendlier (from the lonely boy I uesd to be), Got filled out nicely....Went from 85lbs to 165+ lbs (Had been stick skinny all my life till then)..
It helped me concentrate on studies too.

Now I've transformed from skinny withdrawn guy who wanted only to be an athlete to the freindly, plumpy guy who is gets good grade...I can hardly recognize mysefl in photos of that era.

My antidepressants donít work, but I donít question my dad/doctorís judgement. Iíve gone from top in the grade to maybe 5th in my class only. It sucks. But sometimes I think antidepressants only fix the symptoms not the underlying issues.

got offered them for depression and anxiety but i didn't take them, i understand how they work and why they work for some people but increasing the amount of serotonin in my synapses isn't going to solve the underlying issues such as laziness, lack of motivation, academic performance that lead to it
