> I agree with John antidepressants that put their main focus on seretonin do pose some dangers. And that risk aint worth taking waiting months and feeling crappy until it decides to kick in. If the drug dont impact the neurotransmitter Dopamine then plan on searching and waiting and U might get lucky. Its too bad so many people abused amphetamine back in the day cause when taken properly more times than not itll get U through some of the difficult times. Ive been taking it for 2 years now at a normal dose taking a few days off here and there. Sure beats waiting months, some of us might not have made it that long.

John and others, I respect your point of view, but have found that taking antidepressants is better than experiencing the profound pain due to OCD and depression. With the antidepressant (Effexor-XR), I feel I have closer to a "normal" life.--Cindy W
