I've made the trip from 37.5 to 0. You will survive, but you will also need support. As to "what to do next?"... I'm strangely enough going the route of the older medications for the side effects. LOL. Imipramine at night because it's sedating and calming. And now Tegretol to control my mood swings (and Teg is an anti-seizure medication). You either go at it alone and unaided or keep hoping to find some mixture that brings you relief. If Tegretol's extreme sleepiness side effect fades, then I think I can handle life.

Good look!

> Okay, enough is enough......I've FINALLY managed to get here to that "fun" (sarcasm folks, believe me)dosage of 37.5 mg....Only problem is that I'm scared to make the next jump......It has been Hell, ladies and gentlemen, pure, unadulterated Hell on this journey...It's like a bad "trip" that yours truly definitely didn't sign up "Shrink" and my therapist have been about as much help as Viagara at a funeral Parlor and now I'm at that point where I ask myself what do I need to do?......I've run the gambit of SSRI's.......Prozac being the least troublesome, but still not totally effective in my case.....I'm just at a crucial, yet pain-in-the-ass point in my life......ARGH! Thanks for letting me vent......The feedback here has been the most helpful aspect of this latest mental rollarcoaster ride thus far........
