How many admit taking psychmeds?

Posted by cloudnine on May 30, 2007, at 9:52:58

Dear all,
How many of us tell our friends,families,colleagues that we take ADs or APs or mood stabilizers..etc.
I for myself,sometimes say something like..oh I need a tranqulizer...and for some reason I hear people speak moe easily about taking Valium,Xanax,Ativan....but I can hardly recall people talking about Antidepressants (Tofranil,Efexor..etc) included.I can not tell a colleague at work that I take Antidepressant,but its OK if I say I took a pill of Xanax...
I do not know if Im wrong,but I feel there is a huge stigma and shame if people admit taking Antidepressants,but is less shameful to say you sometimes take a tranqulizer(Benzo).

Please share with me,I need your experiences and comments.
