My opinion regarding SSRIs, reboxetine, etc

The tricyclics have barbaric side effects for most - take them only if nothing else works.

Some get great relief from the SSRIs. If the side effects are terrible then consider moving on to another drug (with a doctors agreement).

This leaves us with a few other alternatives:

1) Serzone
2) Wellbutrin
3) Effexor
4) Remeron
5) waiting for reboxetine

My opinion:

Try the first four (with a doctor's help) before waiting forever for reboxetine. Until you've tried them all one doesn't know if they work in their situation.

As an example I tried everything and nothing worked until I tried Serzone. My life isn't perfect, but Serzone has allowed me to enjoy life a little in this difficult world.
