I was prescribed this a few months ago and it worked really well. But I stopped taking it a while ago, I guess because I couldn't be bothered to deal with it anymore. I made some friends and met a really lovely guy and I felt happy for the first time in a while. It was a dumb mistake, I know. I should get back on but I'm scared to- the last time I did this I was on serotonin (I think) and it made me very suicidal. I don't want to tell my psychiatrist because he'll be disappointed. I think that if he gives up, I'll isolate myself again and make some bad mistakes. So my question is, have you guys had any experience going off and on antidepressants, any kinds?

Hi. I've never gone off of antidepressants, mostly because I have so many mental issues and I remember what bad shape I was in before I got on them, but I would be honest with your psychiatrist and tell him and ask him about restarting. I think you could probably need to start slowly when you restart it so you could probably need his or her help in restarting instead of doing it on your own. 

I hope this helps.

I think you should definitely tell your psychiatrist. If the medication isn't working for you there are others you could try. Also a psychiatrist could tell you what's normal and what isn't for start-up symptoms but feeling suicidal warrants a serious conversation.
