My Two Cents' Worth

My Two Cent's Worth,

The amount of my frustration with all this ( i.e. antidepressants-benefits-side-effects) is un measurable. Everywhere I turn I read
about contradicting theories and opinions. Everyone seems to have different results and side-effects.
As far as the research data and statistics go, I work for the Census Bureau and I wouldn't bet my dog's poop on the results... :)
I'm not saying that all the studies are wrong, just that they are not thorough enough to include all variations of human chemical
make up.

From my own experience, I started Prozac about 7 years ego with great results, at first. I had increased energy, weight loss,
and lessened depression. As time went on the results started to wear off. Now I'm on Effexor XR 150mg, and Prozac 20mg.
When I started Effexor, it worked great for a few months. Now, I have physical, mental fatigue, weight gain, extreme
sleepiness, return of depression, no motivation, no energy to do anything, etc.
I'm at the point of giving it all my (the meds. that is). I'm beginning to feel that I'm better of with out all the synthetic chemicals
and be better of fending for myself. I stopped the Prozac at the beginning of this week and the Effexor two days ego. Not
much difference yet.
I'm also on other meds. for my migraines and allergies. I'm giving them up also. I might look into taking herbs, instead.
We'll see what happens.
