Do you consider these meds to be "heavy hitters" because of their impressive efficacy reputations? Remember, I have "treatment resistive" depression. If there's an AD that cures 95% of the folks that try it, I'll be in the other 5%. Ironically, the drugs that have helped me the most have been ones that generally DON'T help most people, including drugs that failed to get FDA approval for AD use because they weren't considered effective (such as pramipexole & transdermal selegiline).

I've never tried Celexa or Luvox because I had such negative reactions to Prozac & Paxil that I gave up on the entire SSRI category.

However, I DID try Effexor. It produced 100% remission of all my depression symptoms within 12 hours of taking the very first dose, and without any side effects! Unfortunately, over the course of the next week or two, the side effects started to build up, and the antidepressant effectiveness diminished. After a couple of months, I started to wonder if it was still doing me any good at all. So I stopped cold turkey - NO withdrawal symptoms and I began to feel BETTER also immediately after stopping Go figure.

Yeah, I really want to give Buspar a try, at least to satisfy my curiosity.
