> I am very leery of taking antidepressants and have been for quite some time. But, I've been feeling especially awful lately and think it may be time to bite the bullet. I've seen a pdoc recently and his suggestions are:

> Effexor XR
> Zoloft
> Prozac

It really just depends on the individual person...it's really a gamble like situation. My wife does great on Effexor, it did nothing for me. Zoloft worked great for me for many years, prozac made me anxious. Different meds effect different people in different ways...that's the bottom line!!

My Pdoc let's me choose my own meds...my guess(usually) is as good as his with basic anti-depressants. You really have to try one to see how it works for YOU. Good Luck to you.
