Ditching the Ads-anyone else done i, and feel they made the right decision?

I get the impression-rightly or wrongly that espite terribe side effects most people have perservered with the ADs and they have helped them.

I couldn't get on at all with Citalapram first, then mirtazipine, so made the choice to stop.
I hated feeling sedated/dizzy unable to function.
I am still depressed, but feel more in control since being off them and therefore more capable of doing stuff-which is slighly better than on them!
Anyone else in the same boat? I guess I'm looking for some re-assurance thati haven't made a stupid decision by stopping taking them.
BTW,my depression is related to some very traumatic events in my life to do with my relationship with my DS.

Tonight I feel I made a bit of a positive breakthrough with him-(which may all be futile again in the morning though))but as a result I feel less depressed anyway. which makes me wonder if ADs are the right thing for me anyway, as they can't resolve the problems I have with DS can they?
