Does Mepron cause anyone to get depressed? I just restarted it after a very long time and feel very

very down..you know, like in that Simbalta commercial!! I'm always somewhat depressed but even

more so. Any way, I thought I recalled something about that. Also, how do you all cope. I just feel trapped in this dark place. Thanks in advance.

there used to be a perma-post on Mepron and depression. I would search for it if I were you. After a month or so on the Mepron I was real-down. After three I was a wreck. I did not connect it with Mepron until I took a second course of Mepron. Then after a month I was real-down and after three months I was a wreck.

Somehow the Mepron made me feel hopeless. And even when I was aware the depression was a side effect, I was still hopeless.

I am on my 6th rund of Mepron. Before starting on I had some anxiety, but not much depression. I have noticed a lot of improvements in my other symptoms since starting Mepron, but I have had to go on an anti-depressant for the mood stuff.

If you do a search of mepron, mepron blues or mepron buddies you will find stories of others who have or are dealing with depression from mepron treatment.

I hope this helps. It's not a forever thing.

Mepron most definately can cause depression. For many it is a transient thing. Some people stop it for awhile and then restart it without further problems.

I was on Mepron at 4 to 5tsp daily for over one year. At first it caused anxiety and some depression but that lifted with time and I most certainly improved. I don't want to trivialize it. It was a difficult first several months.


Best,

Katrina

Thanks guys, I thought I remembered something about it, I will check the old threads. It has seemed to

help alleviate some other symptoms so I don't want to give up on it just yet. I just want to kill these bugs!!
