> Nothing personal here - but a MONTH? Between you, me, the pdoc and the fencepost - is anyone questioning the reality of these drugs??? I mean a MONTH! A MONTH of possible sleepiness to the point of falling asleep as I drive or type a post here or even knitting!
> I am so discouraged - Is the "cure" worse than the problem?
> I haven't had a intimate session with my mate in FOREVER - and what does the pdoc say? "Well that will work out when the right dose is achieved".
> I asked my pdoc about changing meds to say Wellbutrin - he says to cut the Lex in half. No switches - so anohter three weeks here I come *damned near in tears here due to the high levels of frustration a nd negative impacts on my job and life in general!*
> Guys - these drugs are . . . . highly questionable in my mind. I know that they work to some extent because my anxiety has all but disappeared - but I cannot tolerate the other aspects !

I'm with you Kairos! I think we're all guinea pigs for the pharmcos. Is it better to be "hulking out" than crying all day? Is it better to get no enjoyment out of sex than not want it? Is it better to sleep all day or stay awake all night because of drugs or because of the depression? I'm not sure at this point... I'm going to hang in a while longer... 6 months maybe... and see what happens, but I gotta believe this stuff is doing "bad things" to our bods as well. EGR
