Cipralex vs Effexor
| Fabs
I was treated for depression with Effexor and it worked very well. Subsequently , I developed a really bad insomnia. After many unsuccessful attempts with various drugs, my doctor gave me Cipralex and my life was instantly changed. I have been taking Cipralex for the last 3 years ( I am on 5 mg a day now) and I will never stop taking it. My doctor says some people simply do not produce enough serotonin ( like some people do not produce enough insulin ) which causes many problems. Now I sleep like a log, I am not carried away by my emotions and rages which I could not control before. I work much better. I am happy. My doctor says this is how I would be and feel if I naturally produced my serotonin.

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.
