> SSRIs work for me... but the side effects are beyond intolerable... I think they are a horrid, over-hyped class of meds.

Over-hyped... quite. The way Big Pharmaceuticals puts it, SSRIs are going to save the world. Well, at least until the patent on a particular one runs out. Then... "look, we've made another SSRI! The world is saved yet again!" (yeah, okay.)

Congrats to those who have taken SSRIs for years with much success. They worked for me for awhile. Then I think my condition decided to finally show its ugly self in full view. And it's been a merry-go-round of medications ever since. WEeeeeEEEe!

I think advertising for prescriptions on TV should be banned again. If I have another person (who barely knows me and doesn't understand my condition) bring up Cymbalta again, or that stupid "your time for change" thingy again, I'm gonna scream.

Wow, I totally went off on a tangent. Gonna take awhile for the Lamictal to kick in. Until then, mindless babbling, vaguely related to the subject.

Boy, teaching next week is going to be an interesting time. Those poor kids! (wEEeeEEEee)
