Bob, I sympathize completely. People talk about side effects and how it's worth it to feel better. Well, I think so, too. However, and this is the big thing, if you just get the side effects and not much therapeutic action, it's NOT worth it. And the side effects seem to be intensified or at least less bearable if you are still depressed or anxious. What I'd be able to stand (side effect wise) is a whole lot different when I'm depressed versus when I'm feeling well.

So yes, if a med took away my depression and anxiety and I felt well on it but had dry mouth and anorgasmia or whatever, it would be worth it. (Though why we should have to tolerate a lowered quality of living doesn't seem fair). But having dry mouth and anorgasmia and restless legs while one is depressed is just about unbearable.
