Cipralex vs Effexor
1066views
I was first treated with Cipralex, for Depression NOS, but it made me numb/depressed after 3 weeks. I eventually self-diagnosed with cylothymic disorder and my new pdoc has me on Effexor. It has almost instantly knocked out my ptsd. There are usually a couple days of exhaustion and restlessness when raising dosage. Despairing thoughts no longer frequent the mind. Course of treatment -1 year.
