Cipralex vs Effexor
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.

In praise of Effexor - wonder of wonders
I concur wholeheartedly! "SO, don’t criticize Effexor because it didn’t give you what you were looking to get – embrace it because it takes you to a better place that you never knew existed. But you have to want to go there, to find your true self." Well said. By-the-by; I was recently rx'd a serotonin making drug called amyltriptaline- poof; brain favors it truly. Utopia might be some Mu receptors and Celebrex; then no unnecessary toil on my brain nor being nor spirit. Ah, but such is lif

i have lost my mind completely
I can totally empathise with you I feel exactly the same - I am suffering from Anxiety & Depression have been taking venlafaxine and flupentixol for years and although I am much worse without the meds I still manage to embarrass myself on a regular basis to the point my eldest son is ashamed of me and doesn't care about me anymore. I worry constantly that the rest of my family will soon decide I am not good enough for them also and they will start to look down at me and decide to disown me, too

I understand what you are saying and how you feel. I think my son cares as well as a few other people but they are just tired of hearing it. I know I am and I'll bet you are too. I don't have any magic words. I wish I did.
