When do people realize that their antidepressant medication is helping? What feels different? How does it feel?

The pleasant surprise when I started on the antidepressants: I was still me. I wasn’t zonked. (At least, not then.)

I took meds for generalised anxiety, and they definitely stopped me from panicking on the way to work.

What made me realise they were helping was the first time I absent-mindedly sang while I was at work. That hadn’t happened in quite a while.
