> It is 3 weeks today on the patch. Three days ago the serious suicidal depression lifted. I'd say I am mildly to moderately depressed and the agitation is a little better too. I still feel very frustrated and unmotivated but compared to last week, its better. I hope that this is the start of an upward trend. My friend said that its a slow progression upward, anyone out there thats had a response to an AD, is that true???


Dear Steve, that has been absolutely true in my experience. I have had what feels like more immediate relief but that is probably side effects and not the real therapeutic change. It sounds to me like you are progressing just like it is supposed to happen. That is one of the things we all complain about, it seems to take too long, we are so tired of feeling bad. But sounds to me like you have rounded a corner and it will continue to slowly improve until you will be so happy you just can't stand it! :-))) It is possible to be that happy, and so unfamiliar feeling.

Donna
