Doea any antidepressant work?

Hi there!

I'm on my latest antidepressant called Vioxx. My doctor thinks it is the best antidepressant to hit the market. My problem is that I have incredible insomnia and I do take medication for this but it seems like every antidepressant I take causes me to sleep less and less. Then of course the fatigue over powers me. Do you have insomnia and are on an antidepressant that hasn't made your insomnia and fatigue worse and that actually helps your depression?

Thanks for your responses in advance!

Re: Doea any antidepressant work?

I am not really knowledgeable about CFS, but a relative of mine has it as well as fibromyalgia. Have you tried any alternative medicine therapies? My relative did/does chiropractic, massage, and acupuncture to some pretty good results. I hope that you do find an answer where you can have some rest from this condition. Have a happy new years.
