Thanks for sharing your experience. I think it is important that you can examine your history with enough clarity to identify these patterns and the potential cause/effect relationships. I have developed a distrust of SSRIs over the years because they all seem to deliver decreasing efficacy and increasing body weight over time--why start down that road? I realize they can help some people for awhile, but I've become quite reluctant to use them. Right now I'm on Lamictal and Wellbutrin which have not caused weight problems for me. Of course, those wouldn't work for everybody and who knows what the future holds, even for me. I think we all agree, WE NEED BETTER MEDICATIONS for these illnesses. Thanks for your post.
