Any Nurses on anti-anxiety meds?

  1. I was just curious how many nurses were currently taking anti anxiety or anti depressants since getting into this profession? People that were/are, how has it changed you as a nurse? I have been on 2 SSRIs for almost a year, and it changed my life. I feel so much better about what I do and I'm not always worried and I can sleep at night! Many of us newbies seem to be really anxious, scared, and depressed. How do you all feel about taking such meds? Just a curious question I have anways wondered about!
