    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Hi all, my name is Rachel and I am a married mother of 2. I'm going to graduate with my Bachelor's in Social Work next year. I'm hoping that it will help me to talk to people who are living with mental illness as well. I don't feel like anyone in my life really understands what it's like.

    I was officially diagnosed with depression about 6 years ago. I've been through periods where it's been well managed and periods where it's been terrible. I find that when I start to go downhill again, it's because I need to switch to a different med. Upping the dose doesn't work. I started out on Zoloft, Lexapro, then Zoloft again, Pristiq and now Effexor- augmented with Welbutrin.

    I'd be interested to know what your guys' thoughts/experiences are with these drugs.
