Tamara,

You are not alone in suffering from hormonally-induced depression brought on from birth-control. At 23yrs, I had an awful response to a birth control pill; Lexy's depression was also brought on by a bcp. I was convinced I was dying of any and everything, then the panic attacks started, I had suicidal thoughts, and I couldn't sleep or eat. Because it was a pill, I felt better almost immediately after I stopped taking it--or I at least felt a lot more able to cope.

It does take a while for any AD to work--it takes medicines twice as long as the makers suggest to work for me. And for you, you have wait for the shot to wear off on top of that. While waiting for my ADs to work, I focused on very small things, one task at a time, and gave a lot of my attention to details--it made the time go faster until I one day I woke up and I thought I feel better. I also watched a lot of old sitcoms and read Star magazine.

Hope this helps. Keep us posted.

Edna Babish
