I've been on many different antidepressants and combinations over the last 6 years. They all served a purpose, but they all had unbearable side effects or made things worse.
Most recently I was on cymbalta and welbutrin for years. And the cymbalta had side effects that come on over time and get worse. You actually have to ween off slowly.
And My p.t. doc. said if I took prozac, it would help and that I might just like it.
I did at first. It made me a happier person, and was actually even able to laugh. But after about,45 days I got insomnia real bad. And I couldn't figure it out. Until I went on a rx drug a-z site and found out that 19% of the people who take it get insomnia. So now I'm not taking any antidepressants at all. And I could chew nails right now. But I really shouldn't need anything anyway, since I've accepted the fact that the old me is gone and not coming back. Ive stopped being so devastated by what has happend to me and I've been concentrating on what is left for me. And trying to go on with life as it is.
So I really hope I can get back to being somewhat normal without any anti depressants.
Good luck, Jim
