Well here's my story. I had depression since I was 13 or 14. I never sought treatment until college. At my lowest point I was in the hospital and the gears were in motion for a move to the state hospital for long term care. I was then put on 80 mgs of prozac. After feeling somewhat better I has put into "day treatment" and began seeing a psychologist as well. I then went back to college, finished my degree. Now I am 6 months away from finishing my law degree and I was just accepted into a Ph.D. program in psychology. It took a lo of time, therapy and minor set backs, but I finally at the point where I take meds mostly as "maintance". Over the years I did try other meds (yo uname 'em, I've tried them). But the SSRI's seem to work best for me and Eli Lilly gave me Prozac for free (struggling college student) so I mostly took that. Now I'm on Celexa, which worked great at first but seems to be fading. I, like many of you, wish that there was a AD that had no side-effects. But I guess we just have to live with the fact that they do. Just rememeber that prior to Prozac, all that was available was the Tricylics (and boy do those suck!). So, in many ways, we are fortunate.
