> > HELP!! In 3 weeks my year will be over for my participation in a study group for Agomelatine. This has been the best medication to actually treat my severe depressive disorder. One year ago I was truly ready to give up. I had had enough. I participated under duress in one last clinical trial and l must say it saved my life. Agomelatine has been the only medication that has worked for me. Now my year is ending in a few weeks and I have been informed I can no longer receive this medication until FDA approval!! What am I supposed to do?? No SSRI has ever been effective for me and I cannot believe that my succes on Agomelitine will be suddenly stopped. I am scared to death (literally). Can anyone help me find where I can go to continue my medication regimine? Is it available anywhere?? HELP
> Let me start by saying hello to everyone i am new here so greetings. I to have just completed a 12 week double blind study for Agomelatine and let me tell you this medication is NOTHING short or a miracle drug. Now saying that i know that all antidepressents react diffrent with diffrent people but i have tried over 20 medications and they have all been total crap!!!! At the end of the study when i was taken off i went through such a low period i didnt even want to live anymore ( It was hell) I to am also fighting doing evreything i can to get back on Agomelatine. My life changed drasticly i was able to sleep finaly for the first time in my life. My circadian rhythm became stable. Got off medical disability got a great job. I was finaly able to cry which i could never do being depressed for years and i became much more confedent and way less overwhelmed by anxitys. Now that i am off slowly i am slipping back to being blinded by the darkness makes me sick to be honest and it isnt fair. I NEED BACK ON IT I WOULD GIVE UP EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE!!!!!<<
Wow thats certainly a very positive report, and im very happy to read it.
Can you tell us anymore about your experience with the drug? Specifically Im looking for information on side effects. Ive read claims that agomelatine basically has no side effects(except for a bit of dizziness in the first week), is this accurrate?
Also is the claim of no sexual side effects also true?
Thanks for sharing your experience so far, I look forward to hearing more from you and others :)
