> I'm approaching 10years of antidepressant use for severe depression. I have taken several different types. I would like to know how using these medications may affect my health in the long run. It's a matter of I can't live without them but, can I live long with them without ruining my health?

This is a good question. I've been on desipramine, then Paxil for most of the decade. My instinct, of course, is that we're better off without any drugs. But... that has to be balanced against quality of life in the long run. I haven't seen much written about this issue and I wonder if we're still too early in the history of these drugs for clinical judgements.
