Hello, Has anyone had any experience of writing on antidepressants? I've been put on an SSRI about a month ago, I don't usually take them for the occasional bouts of depression I get, but this time I've had a vitamin D deficiency and its a case of needing to be able to function day to day in the world. I'd got to the stage where I was finding it difficult to write a couple of weeks leading up to my diagnosis and initially the medication has improved my this The problem is I've lost my emotional connection with my characters and I am worried they may have become wooden. I've had a look on the internet and unsurprisingly a lot of writers and artists suffer from depression (or artistic temperament as I've decided to excuse it as!) and some refuse to take anti-depressants at all, citing loss of creativity as the main reason. I'm mainly looking to see if anyone can successfully write on antidepressants or am I just wasting my time until I can get myself off them again?
