> Friend #1: Desperate, severe depression. Stabilized on Paxil and after a while tapered off it and was okay.
Friend #1: Same family and social circle as before Paxil. There were mprovements in his social life that kicked in after his depression improved.
> Friend #2: Both she and her husband tolerate Paxil well and continue to benefit from it after being on it for several years.
Friend #2: Given the same life circumstances, she is calmer and more balanced on meds. She's gone on and off enough to clearly know the difference.
> Friend #3: Responded well to Paxil and without the awful weight gain he'd had on a tricyclic.
Same friends, same family, same doctor, same job. Different drug.
> Relative: Last I heard, she did fine with Prozac.
Her husband and kids were always good. She said had a good life and was chronically depressed and anxious for no apparent reason. Enter Prozac.
At least for these folks, it's not coincidence.
