I believe that dialogue regarding ADs is the key to ensuring successful mental health. I'm not trying to discourage anyone from trying anything that can elevate their mental health and ultimately their life. I'm simply playing devil's advocate with this topic. It just hit me this morning after watching the interview with Andrea Yates' husband, and I simply wondered what medication she was taking. I am not an advocate of Effexor and do not pretend to be; however, I am not advertising my feelings to discourage users who have had success on this drug but to empower users who may having adverse experiences on it. I wish I would have found Psycho Babble BEFORE I had my bad experience on Effexor. Information is critical in any situation, and feeling alone in adversity is dangerous. I'm simply trying to reach those people out there who might need to hear they're not alone.
Hope you find peace in your life. I wish you the best.
