Re: side effects of antidepressants

I know exactly how you feel. I know I function much better on some type of daily medication, but the side effects are so bad that I can't stand to stay on them for long enough to see if they subside. It's really frustrating. The only one that has worked for me though was Zoloft. I had pretty good results on that when I took the brand specific, but when I went to the generic I didn't like it at all. It didn't even really work for me. I was thinking of trying brand specific again, but I don't know if I want to even bother with it. Now with this swine flu mess going around I'm so paranoid that I feel like it's almost enivatable that I'm either going to be depending on my Xanax more or having to try another SSRI or something
