In the years that I drank, I never took ADs. In fact I was sober for like 6 years before I went on them and have not come off since then. I am going back to Effexor from Cymbalta and see how my appetite behaves in a week or so. I gave the Cymbalta 3 weeks and that's long enough as far as I am concerned. The problem with alcohol is that it always gets worse and never gets better. It really is that black and white which is just the way it is. For me, those feelings of remorse and shame after a night of drinking were just intolerable especially considering I was a daily drinker. If anything made me suicidal, it was those feelings deep in my gut after a really hideous night of drinking. Hideous not by quantity of alcohol but by my behavor.
