Hey guys, there is no such thing as an overall "ineffective" antidepressant... So many different chemistries are in place that one person's panacea is another's pandora... for example... I have very limited effectiveness with celexa and Lexapro, but for some people they are an absolute godsend. I have had great experiences with Paxil, for some people Paxil stinks. Same with Luvox, sometimes it works, sometiems it doesn't- all you ahve to do is check the OCD/anxiety boards where people are raving about it for their obsessions and depression. Finally, despite what "research" says, some people worship SJW, I am not one of them but have never tried it personally, so who am I to say? I take trazodone for sleep. As a sole antidepressant FOR ME, probably wouldn't do much, but I've read about some people taking it soley for depression and having amazing results! Other's swear by Zoloft whereas it's made some feel crazy. Finally, with Straterra, people are actually using it as an antidepressant with great results because it blocks NE and DOP.
Bottom line is that different meds do different things... no such thing as an "ineffective antidepressant"

> moclobemide (Manerix, Aurorix)
> reboxetine (Edronax)
> trazodone (Desyrel)
> maprotiline (Ludiomil)
> amoxapine (Asendin)
> fluvoxamine (Luvox)
> atomoxetine (Straterra)
> I'm not too sure about maprotiline, though. I don't known anyone who has taken it.
> Amoxapine is effective, it just carries a higher rate of EPS than any other antidepressant. It's a pet peeve of mine.
