Thanks for the advice guys - it sure is valuable. I tool wonder why I got this outmoded drug. I live in the UK where healthcare and drugs are free (well, we pay for them in taxes so I suppose they are not free) so I dont think cost was an issue. I suspect that my Doc is probably just due a refresher course in medicine by the sounds of things. There is no real shrink culture in the UK like there is in the States (probably why we are all so screwed up and uptight) so I dont understand the process. Whats the difference between a psychiatrist, a psychotherapist, a psychoanalyst and a psychologist and which is most appropriate for me to see. Can only some prescribe mediaction?

Once again, many thanks. THis place is a life line.
