ACK! I hope that doesn't happen here in the states. My pdoc and my internist both tell me that, although liver enzyme monitoring needs to be monitored throughout treatment, serious liver problems usually show up early in treatment if they are going to happen. You're right. More close monitoring of patients, especially earlier in treatment would be a better way to go.

Look, I know that I take risks by taking strong medications. But the alternative for me would be severe debilitating treatment resistent depression. I'm not sure if I'd still be here if not for finally finding a combination of meds that works decently (not perfectly, but decently). But just because there are too many doctors prescribing without proper management, doesn't mean potentially helpful drugs should be taken off the market. Yes, we might need to think of some meds as not a first line approach to treatment for most people. But then there are those of us who don't respond to the first line choices.
